Very nice and clean accommodation which is set in interesting grounds and friendly owners. The only thing fly in the ointment was that the flushing mechanism on the en-suite loo was virtually inoperable. This apparently has been on an going problem for a while. We...More

About the neighbourhood
The centre of Holmfirth will be well recognised by fans of Last Of The Summer Wine. With the river running through the centre, steps and steep, narrow cobbled roads lead away from the church that was built on the site of the original fifteenth century church. Climbing through the ginnels that zig-zag up the hill you soon get a feel for how life must have been many years ago. Taking time to pause and turn round, you get a marvellous view of the town and the beautiful countryside that surrounds it. Holmfirth’s character stems from sandstone buildings that are arranged on the steep hillsides that form the Holme Valley.
How to get there
We have plenty of parking at the cottage which adjoins our house. Parking is on the driveway next to the cottage. Bus station in Holmfirth is 1.6 miles, 5 mins away. Train stations in Huddersfield is 6.4 miles, 21 mins away; Wakefield 16 miles, 40 mins away. Manchester Airport is 32.7 miles away, Leeds Bradford Airport is 27.4 miles away both accessible in under 2 hours.
