Millhouse Green is a small village on the edge of the Peak District National Park, surrounded by rolling hills and fields, and high, open moors. This traditional Yorkshire community is home to a post office, grocery, a couple of welcoming cafes and a cosy pub. Whether you’re planning on hiking the Trans Pennine Way, exploring the Peak District or heading north to the Yorkshire Dales, Millhouse Green holiday cottages are perfectly positioned for making the most of this spectacular region.
Wander out of the village from your holiday cottage in Millhouse Green and you’ll soon find yourself amid wonderfully unspoiled countryside. Cross the ford and stroll along the banks of the River Don, or continue to the Tran Pennine Trail, a rugged long-distance path which runs from coast to coast for more than 200 miles, along disused railway tracks and canal towpaths. For breathtaking views of the Pennines, walk to the viewpoint at Royd Moor.
After a day of exploring, you’ll probably be ready for a pint of Yorkshire ale at the Blacksmiths Arms, a 200-year-old pub which is a great place to get to know the locals and serves outstanding food, prepared with the best local ingredients.
A ten-minute drive west from self-catering holiday homes in Millhouse Green, Holmfirth is a charming town with a selection of independent shops and an excellent music venue, the Picturedrome.
