Beautiful countryside location but only a short walk from Holmfirth town centre
I have lived in Holmfirth most of my life and grew up in our family home in the cottage above. This cottage has been in the family too since then but I have only recently decided to let it out as a holiday home after I found myself staring out of the windows at the view everytime I went up there. It's too beautiful to not share! I live a couple of miles away in Holmfirth with my husband Darrell and have 3 sons and we aim to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible and look forward to welcoming you to our cosy cottage.
What makes this Cottage unique
Besides the stunning views the cottage has original beams, exposed stonework and vaulted ceilings in the cellars, one of which houses the bathroom. The bedrooms are located on the ground floor so that the lounge upstairs benefits from the glorious views.

Fab Location, Comfy & Cosy!
Lovely cottage with everything we needed. Ideal base for exploring this area got to see and do all the things we planned to! Would definitely go back.
Lovely homely cottage
We really enjoyed our stay at The Old Wash Kitchen, the cottage is comfortable and homely, and was a good size for us as a family of 4. The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived. It is set in a lovely quiet location, with plenty of local walks and a short drive into the peaks. The breakfast welcome pack was a thoughtful little extra and was absolutely delicious - so nice that the butter and marmalade are sourced locally. The hosts made it clear that they were there if we had any problems and needed to contact them, thankfully the need didn't arise during our stay. We would definitely recommend a stay at The Old Wash Kitchen and hope to be back again in the future.
The guests loved it and really enjoyed the place.
Nice and cosy
Claire was extremely accommodating and her property is great for a little get away!
A comfortable, clean and well fitted out little house with loads of character.
The Old Wash Kitchen is decorated and equipped to a very high standard. The whole place was immaculately clean and in an excellent state of repair. Although it looks picturesquely small from outside, it is surprisingly spacious within. There is lots of room for four and the furniture in the lounge and kitchen/diner is very comfortable. The view of the hills from the lounge is beautiful and the sound of the river just outside is lovely. The bedrooms are snug, but the beds are comfortable and the bedding of good quality. The bathroom has an interestingly hobbit-sized entrance, but inside there is a full sized bath as well as a washbasin and shower cubicle. The water is lovely and hot and plenty of fluffy, white towels were provided.
The house is located in a quiet lane of attractively interesting stone cottages and there is plenty of parking space outside. The village shop is a two minutes away and there are two pubs and a tea room in easy walking distance. Just behind the house there is a lovely riverside walk that passes an old mill building and continues into Holmfirth.
Clare, the owner answered all emails in a friendly and efficient way and her arrival and access instructions were clear and comprehensive. The welcome pack of supplies was especially kind, with eggs, bread, milk, butter, tea, coffee and sugar all waiting for us. I would not hesitate to recommend The Old Wash Kitchen as place to stay and will certainly return in the future!
