The Old Wash Kitchen is decorated and equipped to a very high standard. The whole place was immaculately clean and in an excellent state of repair. Although it looks picturesquely small from outside, it is surprisingly spacious within. There is lots of room for four and the furniture in the lounge and kitchen/diner is very comfortable. The view of the hills from the lounge is beautiful and the sound of the river just outside is lovely. The bedrooms are snug, but the beds are comfortable and the bedding of good quality. The bathroom has an interestingly hobbit-sized entrance, but inside there is a full sized bath as well as a washbasin and shower cubicle. The water is lovely and hot and plenty of fluffy, white towels were provided.
The house is located in a quiet lane of attractively interesting stone cottages and there is plenty of parking space outside. The village shop is a two minutes away and there are two pubs and a tea room in easy walking distance. Just behind the house there is a lovely riverside walk that passes an old mill building and continues into Holmfirth.
Clare, the owner answered all emails in a friendly and efficient way and her arrival and access instructions were clear and comprehensive. The welcome pack of supplies was especially kind, with eggs, bread, milk, butter, tea, coffee and sugar all waiting for us. I would not hesitate to recommend The Old Wash Kitchen as place to stay and will certainly return in the future!
This is a truly top spec property very comfortable and wants for nothing!
Paul and James were extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. There is so much to do and see in this area, that four days could not do justice to it during our break. However far you have to travel to come here, it is well worth the effort. We will certainly be back asap!! This is an extremely friendly part of the World. Everywhere we went, the local people were so pleasant and helpful and enjoyed a chat. This is a very central point with lots of cities and towns close by to visit. The countryside and its views are stunning and thanks to our satnav we encountered some interesting cross country journeys! If you are looking for a relaxing and good time then you couldn't choose a better location, property and hosts!
