Interaction with Guests
We look forward to welcoming you into our home and can help with local information and recommendations.
Holmfirth is renowned as the setting for the Last of the Summer Wine TV series. Nowadays, it has a growing reputation for hosting many arts events including the annual Folk Festival, Food Festival, Art Week and Arts Markets. The Picturedrome is great venue to go and see live bands, and there is an excellent range of restaurants and pubs serving a range of food to suit all tastes. Holmfirth is an excellent base for walking in the surrounding moors and around the many picturesque reservoirs, as well as venturing further afield into the Peak District. If that's not enough activity, there is a local swimming pool and fitness centre.
From our house, Holmfirth is a 10 minute walk downhill, and considerably longer back up! There are regular buses connecting Holmfirth to Huddersfield and further afield. Huddersfield has a railway station with connections to most destinations.

Kath and Dave are a lovely couple who made us very welcome in their beautiful home. We were even treated to a fresh,tasty fruit salad breakfast to set us up for our journey home! This was our first airbnb experience and we will be using it again.
Wow, what can we say that hasn't been written already, Perfect in everyway, Communications 100%,Hospitality 100%, Listing accuracy 100%, The perfect hosts in every way 100%, Spacious bathroom and bedroom, both really comfortable and spotlessly clean, a perfect night sleep, a beautiful house throughout, huge living room and a roaring wood burning fire, an extra bonus, worth visiting in the winter months just for the fire! (now there's an idea!) Use of kitchen completes the experience and one you will not forget, (great coffee machine,the real thing!) Kath and David are so welcoming and make you feel very comfortable and at ease immediately,So generously opening up their house and garden for our use The perfect accommodation whatever your needs, as close enough to the town centre and yet so quiet at the top of the hill, Its a pleasure walking up the hill knowing what is awaiting us, As we travelled by train it was great that Kath was able to collect us on this occasion, buses are abundant if required, Time permitting we will enjoy walking the route from the station to Spring Gardens now we know the lay of the land, The surrounding are really picturesque and we look forward so very much to our next visit.,,,breakfast, how could we leave this to the end,,,,absolutely scrummy, lovely home made bread and the best fresh fruit salad. Also such a lovely friendly boxer,,,we want 1.,, did I say we are looking forward to our next visit!
Kath and Dave could not have made us feel more welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and the house and room were beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. This was the ideal base for exploring Holmfirth and the Dales and we couldn't recommend it more highly.
I stayed a night at Kath and Dave's whilst over from france. They are a lovely couple. They couldn't have been more helpful, kind and welcoming. The house is beautiful, the room is very comfortable and it really feels like a home from home. The town of Holmfirth is a real find, lots of cool little independent shops, cafés and restaurants. I'm really happy to have discovered this beautiful English town.
We had a very great time at Holmfirth.Kath and her husband were so friednly and lovely. We felt very good. Particularly the breakfast was fantastic. : )
Wir hatten einen sehr angenehmen Aufenthalt in Holmfirth. Die Familie war sehr nett und liebenswürdig zu uns. Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl und willkommen. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen.
Ganz liebe Grüße aus Deutschland,the right hand traffic-land : ))
We had the most wonderful stay with Kath and Dave. We arrived early to a warm welcome and to such a beautiful home. The garden is beautiful and has great views and we spent time chilling out both in the garden and lounge as well as using the kitchen. The bedroom is nicely decorated and the bed was very big and comfy. Breakfast was a lovely bonus and gave us chance to catch up with Kath and Dave before we left. We felt very welcome, as did our 1 year old who loved the attention from the family. Two beautiful dogs which are kept out the way, so don't worry if you are not dog lovers. The location is gorgeous, we'd never been to this part of Yorkshire and were impressed, stunning countryside. A very short drive downhill into holmfirth. Kath's description of her home and the area is spot on, including getting the taxi home... It's a very steep hill! Thanks for a wonderful stay, we plan to come back for longer next time.
Kath and Dave are a lot of fun. Great place to stay; thanks for all of the warm hospitality!
Lancashire/Yorkshire rivalry is alive and kicking in our house, myself being from t' other side o't'hill, and my partner David being a Bradford lad!. We are both art teachers and share an interest in all things creative - we love good food, gardening, music and reading, and our home reflects most of these. We like to frequent our local pub quiz, but we're a bit rubbish! We enjoy travel and like to get off the beaten track. We have a friendly dog who enjoys a walk and any attention he can get.
