Well appointed, clean and comfortable and in a great location. Turn left down the lane immediately on crossing little bridge. Parking spot fine for medium sized hatchback. Owner very friendly and helpful.

A Delightful cottage Right in the Middle of Holmfirth Village, close to Everything shops, cafe's, pubs and restaurants.
we have a 4x4 and could get into the car port eventually but tended to park in the pub carpark about 1 min walk away and could be seen from the cottage.
Lynette was lovely and so helpful, She was away visiting the day we arrived but that didn't stop her keeping in contact and helping me to get the television working for my husband.
I surprised him with a round of golf at a lovely Club only 15 minutes drive away. They bent over backwards to make sure he had a partner to go round with and were so friendly! ( crosland heath golf club)
will be back again!

“Fab little find in great location”
Reviewed 15 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were attending a gig at the picturedrome so booked for a couple of nights. Cottage was lovely , in a great location, fully equipped for what we needed. Lovely seating area out front where the stream ran by . Idyllic setting. The weather was kind to us so we were able to take advantage of the setting and sat outside in the sunshine. All in all a fab weekend . Would definitely return

“What a great find!”
Reviewed 1 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Neither my wife nor I knew the "Last of the Summer Wine" significance of Holmfirth when we booked Ripple cottage for a New Year getaway. The town is lovely, but most of all we have fallen in love with the cottage after only one night. It's so well appointed but sweet and cosy, and Lynette, the owner, is friendly and helpful.

“Fantastic Stay”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

As we could not find the cottage, we called Lynette and she met us in the town centre and showed us the way. Everything was ready for us with all of the little extras already in place {tea coffee milk etc} all additional to what we had expected. Another bonus for me was the fact that we have a large Rover 75 estate car and reading the previous reviews I was ready to look for an alterative parking area. However Lynette showed me how we could park in the car port at the cottage and stayed to guide me into the space. This was a great help as we did not need to use the car during our stay, so did not have to worry about car parking restrictions. Nothing is to much trouble for Lynette or Jay and they are so nice and helpful and we were made to feel so welcome. As massive Last of Summer Wine fans, to stay in Holmfirth in such a comfortable cottage with a perfect location, proved a massive bonus for us. We had a wonderful long weekend. I could not find any fault with this cottage and hope at sometime to return. Thank you so much Lynette and Jay

“Lovely cottage fabulous location”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The cottage s located virtually next door to Compos cottage and Nora Batty's house and is just a minutes walk from the shops, pubs and restaurants. The owners were helpful and pleasant to deal with. The cottage was clean and well appointed and ideal for our weekend break. We found everyone very friendly in the shops and restaurants. This cottage is high recommended and is in a brilliant location. Would definitely stay again.

We loved our stay at Ripple Cottage and had a great weekend in Holmfirth- we were met at the door by Lynett's lovely Mum with the key- inside we found Tea/Coffee/Milk/Cereal and Fresh Flowers which is a lovely thoughtful touch-the house is in a great central location but down a very pretty and very quiet lane a 1 minute walk to the centre which has a large selection of shops/bars/good restaurants- outside the house is traditional stone and inside is ultra modern with every convenience available- open plan Living/Dining Room and Kitchen[all very well equipped] and a large bedroom with a big comfy bed and huge bathroom with bath and shower upstairs- all light/airy and spacious- every thing was spotlessly clean with plenty of towels and extra pillows if required- the house is beautifully and tastefully decorated with some lovely personal touches- right next to the river we fell asleep to the sound of running water and woke to the same plus ducks- outside was every bit as good with a wrought iron table and chairs and a hanging basket and flowering plant pots- it is obvious that this house is very well looked after and cared for and is a real home from home- also it was obvious that Lynette was on hand and close by should you have any problems which may be reassuring to people staying- our car was way too big for the carport but we had no problems with parking at all over the 3 days and got a spot very close to the house-we have stayed in many self catering properties and this was one of the best- not sure that any more could be done as we thought it was perfect and we would not hesitate to recommend a stay here and we look forward to a return visit- Thank you Lynette
