Modern cottage - 1 mins walk from village centre and surrounding countryside



Updated: 04-Nov-2016
Dob Cottage is a one bedroom cottage walking distance to restaurants and shops

Dob Cottage is a nearly new stone built cottage in a pleasant courtyard setting, just a short stroll from the village centre with all it's amenities. The cottage is fitted out with all mod.cons. and yet has the characterful beams so typical of the area. The bedroom on the ground floor has 2 comfortable 3ft beds (can convert to double) with 300/400 thread count Egyptian cotton bedding and pocket sprung mattresses. The bathroom has a bath and separate shower plus wc and wash basin.. Upstairs is an open plan kitchen/lounge area with all modern facilities including a 42" flat screen television, with DVD player.

No more than two minutes walk away, there are good restaurants, take-aways, shops, ATM's and lots of countryside walks, so no need to use the car . There is an allocated parking spot right outside the door of the cottage.

The charming village of Holmfirth with its many quirky little shops and eating places, is just 5 minutes drive away.

About the Owner

I have lived in this beautiful, rustic and friendly area now for 16 years, and although I'm from "over the hills" they don't seem to hold it against me! I retired a short time ago, and that gave me the opportunity to start my little holiday let business which has been a dream of mine for some time. I live in close proximity to Dob Cottage and after driving around the North West as a self-employed rep. for many years, I am enjoying the delights of this area, with it's wonderful characters,scenery and "things to do".

We spent a long weekend at the cottage. It was beautifully equipped and Jenny was the perfect host. in a central location in the village it is ideal for exploring the surrounding very scenic countryside.

Lovely modern cottage with all the things you need for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

Jenny the owner gave us a lovely welcome with some nice goodies for a great arrival. Everything was clean, cosy. You felt like you were arriving at a 5 * hotel the quality of the linen in the bedroom and towels. Great bathroom and shower, kitchen also excellent. Jenny also provided lots of useful information on the local area and restaurants including her own reviews :-) We'll come again.

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay in Honley and the only negative point was that our time there was so short. Dob Cottage is amazing and Jenny has created a beautiful yet welcoming environment that was a pleasure to stay in. From the wonderful welcome basket to the note she left for us about the heating when the weather turned cold - all indications of the perfect hostess. Spotlessly clean with everything a person needs to feel at home - Dob Cottage definitely deserves a 5 star rating. Thanks for sharing it with us Jenny!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. The locality of the cottage is one of its best attributes - no need to use the car to go for a meal or a drink. Home delivery too, when the feet ache after exploring the beautiful countryside (maybe not from the fish and chip shop!!!).

Excellent cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little cottage, well presented, with everything that you could wish for in terms of equipment and facilities. Close to local shops and parking immediately outside. The owner goes to a lot of trouble to make you feel welcome and there is a welcome pack she has kindly provided.There are plenty of choices for eating locally and we made use of some of these, where the food was very good. We recommend the cottage very highly.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I should mention I have the help of some great girls (and a guy) who keep the cottage clean and tidy, and well maintained. I'm so pleased you used the local eateries and the shops, and found everything to hand. Come back anytime!!

The VERY best

  • 5 of 5

If there was a six star review this would be it. Location, cleanliness, more conveniences than you have at home, and Jenny, the owner, is a delight. She cares about you, her tenants. Gay and John Stettinius, Arkansas, USA

From the Owner

I love this area because of the spectacular scenery, and the amazing wildlife. For birdwatchers, it is a very worthwhile area to visit, with the owls and the curlews on the moors, and the woodland birds in the valleys.. It is a very "arty" area with many talented artists and sculptors. There are several events throughout the year ie.Art Week, The Folk Festival etc. The local Tourist Information Office has the details! Country pubs and good restaurants and loads of good walks make it an excellent tourist destination. The Holme Valley is picturesque, rustic, and has a warm and welcoming charm all of its own. I like to think that Dob Cottage is a relaxing and comfortable place to come home to, after a busy day of exploring!

From the Owner

We chose this area to live because, although we have all the facilities we need in the village, we are surrounded by beautiful countryside. Also, the proximity of the cities of Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield, make it ideal.
