  • "Geraldene is a lovely place to stay and exceeded expectations."

    The property is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owners are thoughtful and attentive and have made excellent use of the outdoor and indoor space. The wood fired hot tub is very special indeed. And the walks from the cottage enable easy access into nature and to Holmfirth town. We look forward to our return visit.

  • "Lovely cottage, the size what's just right."

    Great surroundings. Definitely felt like a little hideaway. Bed was incredibly comfy and warm. Hot tub was amazing once at temperature but the length of time and attention needed to get to that point could be a bit frustrating as you can't really head out for a walk and return, and just flick a switch. A few more big throws would be a good idea. Part of a cottage getaway in the winter is to wrap up all cozy together, there was only one fairly thin throw on the sofa.

    It is a little bit of luxury in an idyllic picturesque part of Yorkshire. The owners left homemade and locally made treats and the hot tub was amazing. My partner deemed it the perfect place to propose. I literally would score 10/10 across the board for this adoreable cottage. Would love to return.

    Rob and Julie clearly went to a lot of effort to make our stay great and it was much appreciated.

About the location


Peak District National Park 3 miles; Meltham 4 miles

The old traditional Pennine town of Holmfirth is situated in the heart of the beautiful Holme Valley, on the edge of the West Yorkshire Pennines. Made famous by The Last of The Summer Wine TV series, there is more to Holmfirth than Compo and Nora Batty’s stockings! The ‘Picturedrome’, the North of England’s finest live music venue attracts many famous bands and is located right in the centre of the town. The pelotons from the Tour de France 2014 and the Tour de Yorkshire have both been through this quaint Holme Valley town en route to the iconic 524 metre Holme Moss climb two miles away. It is in these hills where cycling’s triple Olympic Medalist Ed Clancy grew up. Holmfirth also has a good public swimming pool and fitness centre, parks and some super shops and restaurants. The people here are friendly, the streets are quaint and the scenery is breathtaking. The Peak District National Park with its moors, dales, forests, lakes and reservoirs is also easily accessible. The Upper Derwent Valley, home to the spectacular Ladybower and Derwent reservoirs, and where the famous 617 ‘Dambusters’ Squadron practiced the audacious bombing raid on the Ruhr valley in 1943, is only a short scenic drive away. Slightly further is Chatsworth, the stately home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and situated close to the market town of Bakewell, the home of Bakewell Puddings. The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, The National Coal Mining Museum, Wentworth Castle, and the Hepworth Gallery are also within short drives away and well worth a visit. For a spot of culture, Holmfirth has annual festivals with many more attractions that bring visitors back for more; such as the Folk, Arts, and Food & Drink Festivals. Also not to be missed, is Holmfirth Vineyard and Restaurant, where you can book wine tasting tours and enjoy a lovely meal in the restaurant.
