You're spoiled for choice for walks and cycle rides! Located at the foot of Holme Moss the Cote De Holme Moss Grand Depart of the Tour De france 2014 is only metres from your door. There's a fishing spot only a 2 minute walk away which we can provide a permit for up to 2 to fish free of charge and with numerous reservoirs, woodland, moorland and riverside walks, this cottage has all you need for a Yorkshire countryside break! Not only that, all your needs are at your doorstep with 2 pubs, one with it's own restaurant, a village store, tea room and Holmfirth vineyard which offers vineyard tours and serves breakfast, english wines, afternoon teas and an la carte menu, all within a 5 minute walk and as it's such perfect dog walking country most of the local pubs, cafe's and restaurants welcome your furry friends too. The centre of the market town of Holmfirth, is a short, flat 1 mile stroll away or, if you prefer, the bus stop to Holmfirth, outlying villages and Huddersfield to connect with train services, is less than 100 yds away. The local minibus stops on the lane at the rear of the cottage to take you to Holmfirth centre and local villages, and local taxis are competitively priced and readily available. The close proximity to Holmfirth town centre and it's transport links makes this an ideal base for guests wishing to visit events at the Picturedrome, The Holmfirth Festival of Folk, Holmfirth Food Festival, The Art Festival, Film Festival and other local events and we offer a minimum 2 night stay instead of 3 so you can stay over without breaking the bank. There is a small, secluded, stone flagged area to the front with seating for 2 where you can enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of wine (or 3!) in the evening and there's a selection of DVD's and board games if you prefer a quiet night in and some xbox games to keep the kids happy. There is also a picnic basket, picnic blanket and ice packs available for you to dine out 'al fresco' in the beautiful surrounding countryside. A fireguard and high chair is available by arrangement. Please mention if you'd like to make use of the fishing permit. *Please be aware that the bathroom is situated within a vaulted cellar and although inside the room is full height the doorway is less than 5ft in height and may not be suitable for those less mobile. *This cottage is, what is known locally as, an 'underdwelling', therefore, everyday noise from the cottage above is possible. *Although we do not offer private parking there is easy on street parking available. * We allow up to 2 dogs to accompany you free of charge. We do have some basic dog rules which we need you to adhere to which allows us to keep offering this. Please mention on booking if you intend to bring your dogs and how many will be accompanying you.More
