Explore the wonderful village of Holmfirth from this charming terraced cottage, the ideal base for families and couples to explore all the area has to offer.
Studded amongst a row of traditional Yorkshire stone properties on a sloping street, your humble abode sleeps four and is wonderfully cosy with beautiful views of the glorious countryside. Holmfirth is a chocolate-box village of ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ fame, and it is easy to see why this is considered one of Yorkshire’s best-kept secrets. Discover an array of quirky shops and bars just a short walk from your doorstep, and don your walking boots ready for adventures across the Holme Valley and the West Yorkshire Pennines. At the end of the day, there’s nothing quite like basking in the last rays of the sunshine on your private roof terrace.
Enter through the charming facade to find a country cottage-style kitchen that’s brimming with a welcoming ‘lived in’ appeal thanks to the wooden flooring, cheerful decor and array of kitchen gadgets. Chop vegetables and rifle through your welcome pack on the wooden worktops, putting your culinary skills to the test with the help of the gas range-style oven and hob. There’s a microwave, a dishwasher, a washing machine and a fridge-freezer too, plus a wonderful Tassimo coffee machine that will thrill the caffeine enthusiasts among you. Enjoy leisurely breakfasts at the table as you plan your daily adventures, sampling locally sourced bacon and eggs to kick start your day.
Weary from your escapades, the deliciously cosy lounge beckons for family film nights and tranquil evenings sipping your favourite tipple. Settle down on the sofa or curl up in the armchair, tucking a blanket around your legs and warming your cockles with a mug of hot cocoa. The original stone walls and beams have been painted in fresh bright colours, making this retreat a welcome space for relaxing in style. The ornate fireplace is an attractive extra touch, and there are lots of books to choose from on the shelves.
Navigate the steep stairs to the first floor to locate the bedrooms, both of which feature surprisingly high ceilings and period beams. The furnishing has been thoughtfully styled to reflect the age and character of the property with a contemporary edge, and this is a theme that continues into the elegant shower room. Take a refreshing shower and pamper yourself to recharge your batteries, then choose from the king-size bedroom or the twin zip-and-link that can be made into a super-king-size on request.
In terms of practicality, the utility room is equipped with a tumble dryer and secure storage for bikes. Outside, a set of very narrow and steep stairs lead up to your secret roof terrace. Gather your favourite snacks and pour a glass of wine before ascending the steps, and once you reach the top you’ll be rewarded by majestic views from your exclusive vantage point. There’s garden furniture to provide a ring-side seat for stargazing.
Off-road parking is available for one car, and there is a treasure trove of shops, country pubs and cafes just a short 0.5 miles away. For those with a love of the outdoors, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to walking and cycling opportunities.
