Holmfirth Cottage, Holme, West Yorkshire
The cottage is situated at the heart of the small village of Holme, on the cobbles. Holme is at the head of the Holme valley about 3 miles from the centre of Holmfirth which is famous for the television series " Last of the Summer Wine" and much earlier for Bamford films & postcards. To the West the road rises steeply up to Holme Moss and wild, open moorland. Holme Moss is famous with cycle enthusiasts both for the challenge of the climb and the glorious descent beyond.
Holme is on the edge of the Peak National Park with all the wonderful countryside and walks that the park has to offer. To the North East is the West Riding of Yorkshire with its historic mills, canals and industrial heritage. Within easy reach of many attractions for all the family.

The Fleece Inn serves excellent food and runs a small food shop selling milk bread, fresh veg etc plus pies, pasties and 'Holme-made' ready meals. These are available when the pub is open. New! - Free WiFi for pub customers. The nearest Londis convenience store is less than 2 miles away in Hinchliffe Mill. It is open until 10.00pm
The village boasts a small but well equipped children's playground just a few metres from the cottage. Parking is free on the cobbles and along the main road. There is plenty of room for the residents to park, however at the weekend, walkers come into the village and park. This may mean that if you arrive back at the cottage late Saturday morning you may not be able to park on the cobbles but have to go up the road until the walkers leave.
