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.
Other Things to Note
We have a friendly dog, but he is not generally allowed in the main house and you may not even be aware of him. However, this does mean that we cannot allow pets. We are non-smokers and request that you respect our no- smoking policy
Our second stay with Kath and Dave; we were made to feel just as welcome as the first time we stayed, and this time I even got an introduction to beekeeping ! They are lovely people and we would not hesitate to recommend this as a place to stay.
From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and made to feel 'at home'. We could not have asked for a more pleasant stay. Breakfast was delicious. Kath and Dave are the perfect hosts. They have a beautiful home. Holmfirth is well worth a visit - for us, always something to see at The Picturedrome...
We were made to feel very welcome and David and Kath were both really nice and relaxed people. Everything was absolutely perfect, a great place to stay and if you've been down in Holmfirth for a night out, a great walk back up the hill to finish the evening off! Strongly recommended.
Wow!! Staying at Dave and Kathy's was incredible from the start to the finish of our 3 night stay. Their very beautiful home is immaculate throughout and kept very clean. Breakfast was very tasty and we slept like babies every night, after relaxing in front of the log fire. What a pair of gems these two are! If you need to visit locally, stay here, and if you just want a break with a relaxing atmosphere with incredible scenery and perfect hosts, definitely stay here! I didn't know villages like Upperthong existed, it was a complete suprise. We will stay here again many times I hope.
Kath and Dave welcomed us into their home and we instantly felt completely at ease. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and most comfortable. The breakfast was a delight, especially Dave's home made bread ! They were great company and are really good ambassadors for the local area and culture that is on offer.
We will definitely stay there again and would recommend others to do so.
About the Host, Kath
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.
