Enjoy exploring Holmfirth, known as the backdrop to the classic TV comedy series Last of the Summer Wine, from this base; discover its independent shops, galleries and eateries; shop for locally produced supplies in its craft and food market, as well as its farmers’ market.

Keen walkers might also like to pick up the Pennine Way long-distance footpath, while they are in this area. This 270-mile route runs from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm on the Scottish Borders. Follow a section of the 24-mile-long Holme Valley Circular walk, which starts 4 miles away at Berry Brow near Huddersfield. This takes in varied scenery and panoramic views, including historic Castle Hill near Almondbury, which has been the site has been the site of a settlement since around 2100 BC and now features a Victorian folly.

For a shorter, 1-mile walk, head to Digley Reservoir, just 3 miles out of town. Also worth visiting are the Folly Dolly Falls, hidden waterfalls near Meltham, 4 miles away, and the National Trust’s Marsden Moor, 8 miles from the cottage, another beautiful place to walk.

Enter this individual property, which has underfloor heating, to find everything you and your significant other will need during your break. The unexpected decor and unusual furniture and furnishings make a stay here an experience in itself. You’ll discover the apartment centres on an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner/bedroom.

Relax in a comfortable chair in here while you chat about your day or find a film to watch together on the Smart TV. Prepare something special in the kitchen area with your fresh produce from the market and dine together at the distinctive tractor dining table, with its quirky tractor seat stools.

As dusk falls, pull the double bed down from the oak cupboard and enjoy an exceptional night’s sleep. Wake up to indulge in a hot shower in the shower room before making a hearty breakfast to set you up for the day.

Sit on the bench in front of the studio apartment whenever the weather is warm enough. Parking is nearby on the road and is subject to availability, and you can store your cycles securely at the property.

From Holmfirth, head out into the Yorkshire Peak District and the beautiful Pennine Hills. Find an array of footpaths and cycle routes to follow through the national park. Visit Winscar Reservoir, for example, just 4 miles from the town, where you can walk 9 miles around the lake, taking in the views. Spend time at Torside Reservoir too, 7 miles away, where you can follow a shorter 4-mile walk around the reservoir.

Or, spend time in Halifax during your stay in Holmfirth. This thriving market town 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 famous lesbian diarist 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 tasty treat to enjoy back at your luxury holiday cottage.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
