Perfect for a couple wanting to explore West Yorkshire and the Peak District by foot or by bike

Enjoy views of the surrounding moor from the cosy bedroom

For larger groups, there are two other apartments sleeping another eight guests see at bottom of page

Property code: 82194

This peacefully tucked away apartment is simply perfect for couples wanting to get away and enjoy the scenery surrounding the Holme Valley and the Peak District.

Book yourselves a stay in the picturesque Holme Valley and make the most of a superb break at this inviting holiday apartment for two. Relax and take in the far-reaching, glorious field and hill views from the property itself and plan days out in the fresh air, exploring the picturesque surroundings on foot or by bicycle.

This delightful, one-bedroom apartment, in the West Yorkshire village of Meltham, is ideal for two guests and one very contented canine companion. It could be perfect for a dog-loving couple seeking a romantic retreat in stylish accommodation, which also has fabulous access to the great outdoors.

Find your way into this bijou and pristine apartment via the shared entrance on the ground floor. Venture up to the first floor and open the front door of your holiday home to find cleverly designed, light accommodation, centring on an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Return home after your long walks to put your feet up in the lounge area, over a cup of tea and perhaps a movie on the Smart TV. Read a magazine, enjoy your book for a while or head over to the kitchen space to whip up a tasty dinner. Perch at the breakfast bar with a glass of wine while your Yorkshire puddings and tatties are roasting, then dine together here too.

As dusk falls, make your way into the double bedroom for a good night’s sleep then wake up to see the mist rising over the moors. Enjoy a shower in the morning before sitting down to a hearty breakfast and heading out for a walk in the morning sunshine.

Set on the fringes of the Peak District National Park, Meltham is in an ideal location for anyone eager to experience the scenic Colne Valley, some 2.5 miles away, or Marsden Moor, 4 miles away. Highly popular with walkers, this West Yorkshire beauty spot encompasses a 5,500-acre National Trust estate. Pick up the Pennine Way here too: this is a long-distance route that runs for almost 270 miles, from Edale, in the Peak District, up through the Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland National Park to Kirk Yetholm, just inside Scotland. It crosses Marsden Moor, which is a popular starting point for walkers.

Meltham is also an excellent location for those who also like to indulge in a few town – as well as country – pursuits. Treat yourselves to a romantic dinner for two, for example, in either Halifax or Huddersfield, both about 5 miles away and with a broad spectrum of eateries to choose from. Potter in interesting shops in either historic town too; visit museums and art galleries; find leisure facilities to keep you busy on rainy days. Also worth a visit while you are in the area, is Holmfirth, 4 miles away, which may well be familiar to you as it often used to feature in scenes in the TV series Last of the Summer Wine.

Halifax is a thriving market town and was once the centre of the wool trade in Victorian England, which blessed the town with wealth and good fortune. Many of the opulent buildings and monuments from this time can still be seen as you walk around the town, including Piece Hall, a magnificent Georgian building, which was once the place where weavers sold their cloth. Nowadays, it’s a fabulous place to grab a tasty bite to eat or peruse the independent shops and boutiques, as well as catch some outdoor performances.

Other impressive buildings include Halifax Minster, the town’s gothic church; the Grade II-listed Halifax Town Hall, created by the same man who designed the Houses of Parliament; and Shibden Hall, a 15th-century historic home surrounded by a glorious park, once home to the ‘first modern lesbian’, Anne Lister, who wrote her secret diaries there. The parkland is an excellent place to spend a day, where you can walk beside the pretty flowerbeds, row across the Mere or ride on the miniature train which will delight any children in your party. Kids will also love Eureka! The National Children’s Museum, which is sure to capture their imaginations with its 400 interactive exhibits.

If you enjoy food, make sure to visit Halifax’s Borough Market, which is a stunning Grade II-listed building hosting an award-winning covered market throughout the week. Sample some local produce and pick up a selection of tasty treats to enjoy back at your holiday home and to help you prepare some traditional Yorkshire fare.

Compact but ideal for us as a couple (plus dog) for a short break while visiting relatives. On a busy road but compensated by the stunning views from the rear of the property - without any intrusive road noise. Spotlessly clean and well presented. Be aware that the attached pub doesnt serve food, but is brilliant as a real social hub with great beeRead morers. All in all - excellent. Hide

Absolutely stunning little apartment. Perfect little getaway for myself and my mum. Right next to everything you could possibly want but just far enough out of the way to mean that you dont get irritated by too much sound from outside. 100% will return. Staff were so lovely and we truly cannot fault our stay in any way.

5 stars all round, the space is small but perfectly formed. We had a lovely long weekend break, dog in toe, the accommodation was spotless and comfortable, the location is great as there are walks, a few pubs and food shop near by so you don't always need to use the car. The pub downstairs is great with a big outdoor seating area - note they don't Read moreserve food. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely return! Hide
