About Victoria Seaton

Hello, we are Neil and Victoria and have been a couple almost 10 years, having lived in Holmfirth almost 3 years. Neil originates from London, I am from Greater Manchester and we are due to be married in 2018. We have retired early and with my mother Kathryn's help we run Robin Cottage of which we are very proud. We all take great pride in maintaining high standards and are genuinely pleased when our guests have appreciated the cottage and had a good break. We all treat people as we would wish to be treated ourselves and customer care is very important to us.

Traditional cottage in picturesque village setting

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our relaxing stay at Robin Cottage! Overlooking the river with a gorgeous front area. 2 seconds away is the Wrinkled Cottage cafe, dog friendly and does an amazing breakfast and gorgeous afternoon tea! The Cottage has kept most of its eighteenth century features and is lovely and cosy with all mod cons. The living room fireplace is stunning and there are loads of trinkets throughout! Also in the Cottage are records and record player, IPhone docking station, books, magazines and a flat screen TV, we hardly moved as all of the entertainment was to hand. The area has some gorgeous walks which Betty our Westie loved! Such a fantastic relaxing stay and would definitely recommend!
