Sitting in the heart of the breathtaking Holme Valley, this picture-postcard town is popular with walkers and wildlife lovers alike. A fantastic retreat for keen walking or cycling groups up to four.
This stylish apartment, on the northern fringe of the Peak District National Park, sleeps four guests and is located adjacent to the owner’s pub. The area is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, with a whole host of walking and cycling routes to explore. The property is just 3 miles from Marsden Moor National Trust, where you’ll find footpaths across 5,000 acres of rugged moorland. If you fancy a gentle walk/cycle, head to the traffic-free Longdendale Trail (14 miles). The picturesque town of Holmfirth is just 4.5 miles away and has some great independent eateries.
Enter the property via a shared entrance and follow the stairs to the first-floor apartment. The accommodation is decorated in a contemporary style, with flashes of blue tying each area together. The apartment feels bright and fresh, thanks to neutral tones and dual-aspect windows looking out over open countryside. An open-plan layout creates a fabulous social space; relax on the sofas with a glass of wine and chat whilst the dinner is being prepared or gather around the breakfast bar in the mornings to plan the day’s itinerary. In the evening, enjoy a pint or two in the pub garden, whilst admiring the spectacular views.
The walks around Marsden Moor range from a gentle stroll along the canal to an all-day hike. There are numerous circular routes, many of which take you along large stretches of the Pennine Way. The Huddersfield Narrow Canal, which passes through the estate, is the highest stretch of canal in the country and the towpath provides a wonderful place for an afternoon stroll, with picturesque picnic spots dotted along the way. Fans of the TV series Last of the Summer Wine will enjoy a trip to Holmfirth (4.5 miles), where you can visit many of the famous filming locations.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
