We recently ventured to the area to see a musical performance at the famous Holmfirth Picturedrome and spent two nights at this delightful country house bed & breakfast on the outskirts of Holmfirth. We simply could not have chosen better.... The Full English and continental breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, the house and gardens are magnificent with wonderful views,beautifully furnished bedrooms, a huge residents lounge with inviting open fire, comfortable seating, a dining hall and a conservatory. The whole house has a very high standard of decor and the fact that it remains a usable and comfortable space is a testament to the considerable skills of Anne Autun the highly witty, entertaining and positively enchanting lady owner. Nothing was too much trouble and we truly felt as if we were staying with friends.
I highly recommend this accomodation and the the Old Stoney Bank experience to anybody visiting the area and will definately return myself when the opportunity arises.
