About the Owner

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.

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.

A beautiful well presented cottage

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful well presented cottage within walking distance of holmfirth. An excellent entertaining area out the back of the cottage in a private courtyard where we hosted our pre wedding celebration get together.

Upon arrival we were made to feel very welcome by receiving a wedding card and a bottle of champagne from the owners. The property had everything we required and the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in 🙂. If we are to returning to Holmfirth as we live in Australia we would most definitely book again.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

From the minute you see it you will fall in love. Open the door and it's truly a home, one you don't actually wish to leave. Gorgeous outdoor areas and inside is spacious and very well presented.

We had friends come over to visit and they all said the same... " I'd love to live here and.have it.as my.house"

Truly deserves the 5 stars.

Perfect home from home

  • 5 of 5

Eastholme provided a perfect home from home for us during our recent stay in Holmfirth for our son's wedding. The property was immaculate with every facility we required, plus more (and all in good working order). Its great location near the centre of Holmfirth also held spectacular views of the surrounding area - the outside spaces provide particularly lovely spots to appreciate them.

The cottage is beautifully renovated, very clean and was perfect for our requirements. In our party there were 2 couples, 2 children under 4 and a baby (using a travel cot - provided by the owner). A warm welcome from the owner was appreciated upon arrival, and a fantastic week exploring the area was had by all. The cottage is well equipped and we had everything we needed and a few additional luxuries. I would recommend to all.

Family weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Eastholme for a family weekend - with our grown-up children. The cottage was delightful, clean, and welcoming. The wood burner was super efficient and the beds were comfortable. The cottage has pleasant walks nearby but is very close to Holmfirth for shops and restaurants.

From the Owner

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.

From the Owner

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.
