“A great escape”

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute.
The cottage is so welcoming and well equipped.
A 20 minute walk from the town centre.
Some great walks around local reservoirs.
Some great eating joints - Masala lounge and the Old Bridge Inn. Also an excellent Italian restaurant but we can't remember the name.
Thanks to the owner Kate for making us so welcome.

“Lovely relaxing cottage”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just back from stay in Milrace Cottage. Stone cottage that backs onto the river. Lovely quiet position with plenty of ducks, birds, trout etc. to keep you amused. Kate who owns the cottage could not be more friendly and she keeps the cottage in immaculate condition. Holmfirth is a bit quiet and we struggled to find a nice traditional pub in the town centre, but the Toad & Tattie on the road into town does excellent food and the staff are extremely welcoming. We did not want to come home!

“A very relaxing cottage to escape from busy life!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This cottage was the ideal get away for us. Just a short distance from our home near Manchester but far enough to feel like you have entered another world. We love Holmfirth and all the surroundings have to offer and Millrace Cottage was the ideal base. Kate gave us a warm welcome, plus there was a little treat waiting for us :) She had some great advice on things we could do whilst in Holmfirth, including taking our disposable BBQ to a local reservoir. The cottage itself is located next to a water mill and the sound of running water day and night was lovely, plus the odd visit from a duck or two added a nice touch. The rooms are very cosy and ideal for snuggling up in. Overall this was the perfect birthday get away.
