No more than two minutes walk away, there are good restaurants, take-aways, shops, ATM's and lots of countryside walks, so no need to use the car . There is an allocated parking spot right outside the door of the cottage.

The charming village of Holmfirth with its many quirky little shops and eating places, is just 5 minutes drive away.

It was a perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was in a great location close to the center of town. Everything was clean and well organized. The bathroom was the nicest and most modern of anyplace we stayed during our 2 weeks in England.

Jenny was very helpful and readily available for any questions we had.

I would highly recommend this rental.

Clean and very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very clean and comfortable. Well equipped. We had a very enjoyable stay. Jenny popped over to welcome us after that we were left alone to enjoy our stay. We would recommend Jacobs Well and the Fire and Ice for meals both places were very nice and the staff were very welcoming. All in all if we came back to the same area we would definitely stay here again. Once again thanks Jenny.

About Jenny Foster

I have lived in this beautiful, rustic and friendly area now for 16 years, and although I'm from "over the hills" they don't seem to hold it against me! I retired a short time ago, and that gave me the opportunity to start my little holiday let business which has been a dream of mine for some time. I live in close proximity to Dob Cottage and after driving around the North West as a self-employed rep. for many years, I am enjoying the delights of this area, with it's wonderful characters,scenery and "things to do".

Jenny Foster purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Jenny Foster chose Huddersfield

I love this area because of the spectacular scenery, and the amazing wildlife. For birdwatchers, it is a very worthwhile area to visit, with the owls and the curlews on the moors, and the woodland birds in the valleys.. It is a very "arty" area with many talented artists and sculptors. There are several events throughout the year ie.Art Week, The Folk Festival etc. The local Tourist Information Office has the details! Country pubs and good restaurants and loads of good walks make it an excellent tourist destination. The Holme Valley is picturesque, rustic, and has a warm and welcoming charm all of its own. I like to think that Dob Cottage is a relaxing and comfortable place to come home to, after a busy day of exploring!

What makes this cottage unique

We chose this area to live because, although we have all the facilities we need in the village, we are surrounded by beautiful countryside.

Also, the proximity of the cities of Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield, make it ideal.
