Property code: 83151

This contemporary property oozes style and provides the perfect base for a memorable family holiday exploring the Peak District.

Stay in this impressive property that’s set in the rural village of Holme, a tranquil destination that’s almost out of reach. Not only is the area renowned for its attractive landscape and array of walking and cycling routes, but it is also a great destination for getting off the beaten track and discovering the Dark Peak in all of its wild and rugged glory. After you have satisfied your thirst for adventure, all that’s left to do is store your bikes in the handy outhouse and head inside to rummage through your welcome pack.

In a past life this property was a post office, but today it is a contemporary retreat that sleeps seven and has a rustic yet cosy vibe. Wooden floors, exposed stone and beams add to the overall appeal, and all the furniture blends beautifully together with the crackling wood burner. Whether you are rustling up a family feast or kicking back and relaxing on the sofas, you’ll have all the home comforts you need to unwind. As a bonus, the lavish freestanding bath and equally impressive shower room are just the ticket after your explorations.

Holmfirth (3 miles) is a traditional market town surrounded by the rolling countryside of the Holme Valley, a destination eagle-eyed viewers may recognise from ‘Last of the Summer Wine’. You’ll find antique shops, boutiques and tearooms as you stroll through the pretty town, investigating the fascinating heritage through following the Blue Plaque Trail. The Pennine Way is a must for taking in the scenery, but the area is also a haven for cyclists. Nearby Holme Moss formed part of the Tour de France route in 2014 and is an exhilarating route for two wheels 2 miles away.

Lovely location and comfortable house. Lack of a garden or any outside space might be a problem for some though the proximity to fields meant we were fine.

We had a lovely stay in the old post office. The cottage was very well kitted out and comfortable. The location was lovely with a beautiful setting and lots of walks straight from the cottage with a pub 2 minutes away. It was also very close to Holmfirth with all the restaurants and shops. Thanks!

A beautifully furnished and clean house with good quality equipment & utensils. A welcome box of goodies was a lovely touch and enjoyed by our family. A well thought out guest folder contains all the information required for your stay in the cottage . The location was perfect for visiting places and the village had lots of beautiful walks that we eRead morenjoyed walking our dog. A local daycare for dogs (Khays Paws) was fantastic, enabling us to visit places without our dog. Overall a brilliant holiday. Hide

This is a really lovely cottage in a brilliant location, close to Holmfirth with lots of options for dining and shopping, and great walks from the doorstep. No outdoor space, but theres a kids playground just opposite the cottage which would be good for younger children.

This accommodation is beautifully finished. With lovely walks on your door step and beautiful sceneries, a pub within walking distance and loads of places to visit just a short drive away. Would definitely come back.
