The owners of this cottage have done a fantastic job of making it cosy, homely and clean as a whistle. They have thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay including shampoo and conditioner! It's beautifully decorated as well. It's very close to all the shops and cafes in Holmfirth, literally 2 minutes walk.
Only things to be aware of when booking is parking is tight on the back lane but you can park elsewhere and I think you'd find this problem on most of the town centre streets. And that the second bedroom, as stated, only has a 4 foot bed not a double, so be prepared to cuddle up (or top and tail as we did!). Also the property is over 3 floors and the stairs are steep for anyone with mobility problems.
But honestly this is a gorgeous place and we had a wonderful time staying for the weekend as a group of old uni friends recently.
We stayed here for a birthday weekend, which also happened to be a beautiful Spring weekend, so Holmfirth was beautiful. It was still cold, though, so it was great to have this cosy cottage with its fire. Lovely to get into town through the tiny lanes on the hillside, and Holmfirth (as the owner told us) is one thing in the day and another at night: jigsaw-box pretty in the day, and at night great food (fish and chips to the high-end Black Cat bistro) and bars selling microbrews - all within three or four minutes of this great wee cottage.
We loved the cottage. It is so comfortable and cosy, and furnished and decorated to a high standard, we were impressed. It had everything we needed.
Our stay was short and so we felt that we only scratched the surface of what Holmfirth has to offer. The central location of the cottage, however, meant that we didn't waste any time getting to where we wanted to be.
We plan to return to get to know Holmfirth better and to explore the dramatic surrounding countryside and will book the cottage again.
Just had a lovely weekend in this cottage. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and so homely. The owners have thought of everything and given great attention to detail. The log burner gives a really lovely feel to a winters evening with a glass of wine.
Holmfirth is vibrant and full of places to eat and drink and literally only around a 2 minute walk to the centre. We thoroughly enjoyed the Picturedrome music venue and will definitely be back.
We have just spent a lovely week in Holmfirth in this beautiful cottage which was ideally situated, just a few steps away from Holmfirth centre, where there is a multitude of pubs, cafes, restaurants, wine bars and shops to keep you occupied. We were early surprised by the variety of restaurants and nightlife.
Coombes Hill Cottage, is in a perfect location, really well equipped with everything you could possibly need and is beautifully finished. The wood burning stove was lovely on winter evenings,10 out of 10 for the helpful owners who seem to have thought of everything.
We would highly recommend Brambles Bar, The Tap House, The Old Bridge Inn and the Shimla Indian restaurant. The fish and chips on Hollowgate are lovely and seems to be open all hours. For something different, a visit to the Carding Shed retro cafe is worth a look.
We didn't have enough time to try everything on offer but will be back.
