Cottage in Holmfirth, Yorkshire, England - With An Enviable Position Overlooking The River Holme, & Close By For All Amenties
About Kathy Brown
We live in the Holmfirth area and have a small family who keep us busy and VERY active most of the time! . I was born and bred in Holmfirth and between me & my husband we both know the area very well. We still use the local area frequently on family walks where we always try to make a local hostelry the end of our walk so we can re-fuel on the local grub for the walk home. We offer guests a friendly service and lots of local knowledge if required!
Kathy Brown purchased this Cottage in 2017

We were most impressed with the cottage, it was beyond what we expected. A nice touch was to be left Bread & Milk for when we arrived. A great place to go out from but also an excellent kitchen to cook a meal in. We hope to come again.
