Having stayed previously in other properties owned by Kate we finally got round to using Millrace for a long weekend break. The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the Holme Valley on foot between Holmfirth and Holme, with a number of great walks on hand. The cottage is situated right on the river and opposite the old Hinchcliffe Mill. It is in a very tranquil spot, and the balcony provides a lovely spot (weather permitting) to eat, drink and relax - we did all three! The cottage is well furnished and equipped, and ideal for a couple wanting to be "not too far from the maddening crowd". We visit this area numerous times and Kate is always our first port of call, although choosing a favourite property is difficult - we would have no hesitation in using any of them.
Thanks Kate for your warm welcome and constant desire to ensure our stay is nothing less than perfect. See you soon!
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
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!
Stayed at Millrace for the 3rd time and still as relaxing as ever.. finally saw a Kingfisher! Sound of the river is so peaceful and the cottage is a perfect hideaway.. Thank you kate for letting us stay again!
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.
