Thank you for the lovely welcome. The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed and it was great to have such a nice park just round the corner!
Holt bank is spotlessly clean, well designed and furnished. Ideal for a visit to Huddersfield and the surrounding areas. Easy walking distance into town and train station if you want to venture further. Car parking is off road and directly next to the property. The hosts live next door which is great no fiddling with key safes and memorising number combination. As hosts they were very helpful if required, dug me out of the snow, but not intrusive. Will definitely be returning when next in Huddersfield. A great find.
Holt Bank Cottage was a great place as a base in Huddersfield- we are a family of 4 (11yearvild twins) and were comfortable in the family room. The cottage is immaculate - everything you need - and dedicated parking. The park round the corner is great with kids and good cafes in walking distance as is the town centre (15 -20 minutes) including leisure centre and station. Gave us a home feel stay in the city. Thanks Ann.
Situated in an upmarket part of town
Clean & well presented
Off the road parking
All the mod cons sans air conditioning
The lounge/kitchenette was a makeshift bedroom for our toddler which meant that we couldn't relax after putting her to bed.
The refuse bin was small and we couldn't find any new liners.
The shower floor was dangerously slippery.
The traffic noise was unbearable in the night.
We received a warm welcome from John and Ann. The Cottage was as described and suited our purpose well. The location is very convenient with the splendid Greenhead Park within a 2-3 minute walk. Walking to town centre takes 15 - 20 minutes through the park. We've stayed in Huddersfield many times over the last 15 years in a variety of hotels, B&Bs and "holiday homes" and this is easily the best we have stayed at.
We've stayed at the Holt Bank Cottage twice when traveling to England from the United States. The first time we had our 1 year old son and sister-in-law along and Ann and John were extremely accommodating in helping all of us feel comfortable. They were so welcoming and friendly and were willing to help with anything we needed. The second time we traveled we had our son with us (who was 2 years old) and they were again helpful with accommodating him and even helping us find a reliable babysitter! The cottage is extremely clean and well organized, and perfect for anyone who is looking for a place to stay in a home environment rather than a hotel! I'd recommend the Holt Bank cottage to anyone looking for a place to stay in or near Huddersfield!
Our second stay at Holt Bank both between Christmas and new year, and both stays just as comfortable as each other.
Ann and John were there to greet us on arrival, even offering to help unload the car, they could not have been more accommodating.
The cottage itself is extremely clean, comfortable and warm with all the conveniences one likes to have whilst away from home for a few days, complete with off road parking right outside the cottage. The location is convenient for public transport with a bus stop right around the corner, handy for a 5 mins ride into the town center. It is even possible to walk into town in around 10 to 15 mins, passing the bus and railway stations on the way. There is also a good selection of shops, pubs and food outlets within a 10 min walk.
Also within a few minutes walk is Greenhead park, a lovely place to wander around or sit and watch the world go by, you could even pop into the cafe for refreshments.
Lovely cottage, ideal location for us to visit family or take a bus or train trip out into the countryside or visit the local attractions, already booked our third stay, what more can one say apart from thanks Ann and John for making Holt Bank such a comfortable cottage.
