Charming 2 Bed Cottage, Enclosed Garden & Courtyard Nr Holmfirth, Holme Valley

Romantic cottage in Huddersfield with outdoor tennis court
Recently chosen as a shoot location for a French style home accessories on-line store, The Gables is a lovingly restored 2 bedroomed cottage situated on the outskirts of the delightful village of Shepley in West Yorkshire, very conveniently placed to discover the delights of the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District and the Pennine Hills. The cottage is approximately 3 miles from Holmfirth, the location for the long running television series, the Last of the Summer Wine, in the heart of the stunning Holme Valley. There is a warm, welcoming country pub/restaurant and very well stocked supermarket (open 24 x 7) approx. 5 mins. walk away. Dating back to the early 1700's, The Gables was once the Village Shop and, although we have renovated it to a very high standard, care has been taken to preserve and enhance all of its original features throughout, such as the four fireplaces, beams and quirky shaped rooms, whilst also being brought up to date with earthy/neutral tones throughout, to create a special haven of tranquillity and charm. The fully centrally heated cottage comprises of a country style kitchen with range cooker, combination microwave, fridge and washing machine. The separate dining room with multi fuel burner, has a pitch pine dining table and chairs for 4 people plus a 2 seater Chesterfield settee. Tucked away in the pantry is a large fridge freezer. The separate lounge has a further fireplace with stove effect gas fire, a sumptuous 4 seater leather Chesterfield settee, an armchair plus a large coffee table, TV and DVD player. The master bedroom has a King size bed, 2 chests of drawers and a large double wardrobe. The second bedroom has 2 single beds, 2 bedside cabinets with drawers, a chest of drawers plus a built in cupboard. There is a further chest of drawers on the landing for additional storage. The 2 bedrooms share the stunning vintage style bathroom which has a rolltop bath and separate shower cubicle, The French style cabinet and crystal chandeliers add to the charm of this lovely room. We supply bed linen, towels, a hairdryer and ironing facilities. Quality furniture and soft furnishings are provided throughout the cottage and enhance the charm and ambiance. Free WiFI is available to our guests and we provide a quite substantial book library and a compendium of games for your added enjoyment.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely place and great location for seeing the area
Owner was very responsive to pre holiday queries and asking recommendations. A lovely spacious house. Loved the real fire. Comfy beds and beautiful bathroom. Good location for walking to the local pub or driving to other locations for walking.

5/5 Excellent

Last minute family holiday
Although a rushed last minute booking, we couldn’t have been happier with our accommodation. This cosy comfortable cottage had the standard decoration of a luxury hotel with great heating, cooking facilities and gas and open fires. The beds were so comfortable as well. Lots of scenery to enjoy and easy communication with owners who also left recommendations of day trips and walks. We thoroughly recommend this property and would love to go back.

5/5 Excellent

Great cottage in lovely location
We had a great stay, the cottage was beautifully modernised but maintained the “cottage” feel. Very clean and comfortable.

5/5 Excellent

Cosy Cottage
The cottage is nicely presented with high standard fixtures and fittings. This two bedroomed cottage was more than big enough for a family of four with teenagers. Parking on the roadisde next to the cottage was never an issue with only a couple of neighbours using the same part of the road. Its positioned on the outskirts of the village within walking distance of a Garage/shop and also the main village with shop is a short drive or longer (but not too far) walk away. The village has a small train station that will allow travel to nearby towns/villages too. There are good information leaflets held at the cottage as well as good comms from the owners. Thank you for welcoming us to your letting.

5/5 Excellent

Family week
We had a lovely week away exploring the local area staying at a lovely cottage. Had everything we needed and a real home from home.
