Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Holmfirth

Holmfirth holiday cottages in West Yorkshire are perfectly positioned for exploring remote, windswept limestone dales, gritstone edges and high, open moors. This rugged area of Yorkshire is a paradise for walking and wildlife-watching, with ancient stone villages and magnificent stately homes nestled into folds in the rolling Pennine hills. Countless footpaths pass sweeping lakes, plummeting gorges and lush valleys, where you can wander for hours without seeing another soul. Best known as the home of Last of the Summer Wine, Holmfirth is an excellent base in this wonderfully unspoiled corner of Yorkshire. Holmfirth lies in the beautiful Holme Valley on the northern edge of the Peak District. It grew around a corn mill and bridge over the River Holme, which ambles the town centre. This thriving community hosts an excellent film and folk festival every June, at various locations, including the Picturedrome, an award-winning venue in the town centre.

Every year, thousands of fans of the TV comedy Last of the Summer Wine visit Holmfirth – nicknamed Little Hollywood by locals – to see Sid’s Café, Nora Batty’s Steps and other filming locations. Holmfirth was also the home of Bamforth and Co, who pioneered early filmmaking before becoming famous for producing cheeky postcards.

Take a wander into the town centre from your holiday cottage in or around Holmfirth, and you’ll discover ancient streets lined with stone-built cottages, family-run businesses and a selection of cafes, restaurants and pubs. Self-catering holidays in Holmfirth would be incomplete without a pint of Yorkshire ale at the local pub. If you’re unsure which to pick, try the Ford Inn, which has been serving weary travellers since 1820 and has a reputation for serving delicious evening meals prepared with fresh, seasonal produce from the surrounding fields. For delicious French-inspired cooking or a good coffee, head to the Black Cat Bistro on Victoria Street.
