About Sue -

We have lived in Holmfirth for over 20 years, and our family has grown up here. We all love it - for the great amenities on our doorstep, including the varied restaurants, entertainments and arts festivals.

The higgledy piggledy houses in Holmfirth village remind you of a Southern European hillside village. We also love to be able to walk out of our front door into wonderful and varied countryside.

Sue - purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Sue - chose Holmfirth

We bought Eastholme because it is opposite our own home and it was in need of some TLC. We have spent 18 months totally refurbishing the cottage and making it into somewhere that we would want to stay in ourselves.

Having spent many a family holiday in self catering accommodation we have tried to use that experience to

ensure everything is just right.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage retains some of its best original features, such as the stained glass window details and pine wood floors and this is complemented by modern and stylish fittings and furniture. The courtyard is a sun trap and the patio has superb views. The rest of the garden even includes a vegetable patch.

Holmfirth centre is a few minutes walk away and there is always something going on - we love to walk down to shop in the market, with its craft bakery, fresh fruit and veg and local butchers - then grab a coffee and relax at Longley's cafe and ice cream parlour.

There are pubs, bars and restaurants to suit every taste, and the famous Picturedrome has a unique repertoire of live bands. The surrounding countryside is spectacular - perfect for both walking and cycling.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for making our break here so enjoyable. A beautiful, well-quipped cottage in a stunning location with spectacular views and an energising walk into the town. We also enjoyed the pizza oven and the al fresco dining. All in all, a fantastic holiday.

Eastholme Cottage, Holmfirth. Short walk to village centre in lovely setting
average rating of 5.0 based on 15 reviews

A wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two children and I were visiting from Spain, and we were absolutely delighted with Eastholme Cottage.

The cottage is pristine, and tastefully designed and decorated. It was the ideal location as we had booked our stay around a gig at the Picturedrome, which is just a few minutes' walk away.

Family and friends who popped over to see us during our stay were most impressed with the accommodation and Holmfirth itself. We hope to return to Eastholme Cottage next summer - for longer than three nights if possible.

Many thanks to Sue, who allowed us to check out later; this made our travel plans to our next destination much easier.

Good Base For A Walking Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This property was a good base for our walking holiday in the Holme Valley. From the property we enjoyed a walk along the Holme Valley and a walk towards Cartworth Moor. It was just a short but steep walk to Holmfirth Bus Station for a bus to the village of Holme, from where we enjoyed country walks to reservoirs. We only used our car once during our stay, to go to Marsden for a walk beside the canal.

The property was very clean and very well equipped. Throughout the property the decor was predominantly black and white, with a bare wooden floor, which gave it a clean, stylish but rather stark appearance. We slept well in the downstairs front bedroom. The property did have a couple of oddities: the glass lampshades in the kitchen were low enough to knock one's head on, and the plughole was in the centre of the bath instead of at the tap end, so that one couldn't lie on one's back in the bath.

From the road there are several steep steps up to the front door, which would make the property unsuitable for disabled people. After our country walks we enjoyed sitting on the seat on the elevated front patio with a cup of tea looking at the view. There is also an enclosed rear patio with table and chairs. The remainder of the back garden is terraced with uneven paths.

Lovely holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

Eastholme is an absolutely lovely holiday or short break hideaway! Beautifully designed and decorated, and comfortable, with great and wonderfully sunny patio (weather on our side!) , and we felt welcomed and treated. We also loved the walks, on the doorstep, and the artweek in Holmfirth while we were there.

A wonderful home from home

  • 5 of 5

We chose Eastholme following a last minute cancellation elsewhere. For once, the gods were on our side. Not only did we end up with a lovely house in a wonderful part of the world, we were able to stay an extra day for the same price as the property that cancelled!

The house was exquisitely finished by someone with a keen eye for detail. We particularly liked the upper bedroom level. The heating was easy to control and made the whole house very cosy.

Sue was very helpful before our visit and although we never met, we felt most welcome and reassured.

A real home from home and although quite a challenging walk up from all the facilities, it is only a short 5 min one. However, with a few teenagers available to assist us with errands, we never really found this an issue!

There are so many walks and activities in the area that this proved to be a lovely house for a base in a wonderful part of the world that we would definitely recommend.
