Lovely to sit on the small balcony and watch the ducks on the river. Great for local attractions. Nice walk along the river into Holmfirth

A well equipped cosy cottage with a lovely balcony overlooking the river. The provisions which Kate left for us were the icing on the cake

“Peace, tranquility, a little slice of heaven”
Reviewed May 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had been to Holmfirth before, so my wife & I chose it as the place to spend 2 nights away to celebrate our 25th anniversary. This cottage was the perfect choice & Kate the perfect host greeting us with a food parcel to help us settle in. The cottage ticked just about every box. It's cosy, perfect for any couple looking to escape the normal hectic day to day work & family life in Gods Country. The balcony overlooking the river is wonderful & probably the highlight for us, so much so although we wanted to go out & explore it took a lot to tear ourselves away from sitting in the sunshine with fabulous views, the sounds of the river, the wildlife & the duck that was stationed below the balcony for our stay! We walked alongside the river into Holmfirth, & although it was muddy, with the right shoes, it was well worth it for the peace & the views. Back at the cottage, what a lovely feeling to wake in the morning to the sounds of the stream. A fabulous 2 days away from everything - thank you Kate we hope time allows us to return - soon!

“Cosy and relaxing”
Reviewed January 18, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Just returned from an excellent weekend at this gorgeous cottage for two. It was my husband's birthday and it lived up to everything I hoped for. Kate was so helpful from the first contact to enquire about booking, to a lovely welcome and excellent recommendations on walks, pubs and restaurants. The cottage is set in a relaxing location by the stream and has everything you could need, the log burner and fairy lights make it cosy and ideal to relax and unwind.
