The nearby town of Holmfirth is best known as the home of Compo, Cleggy and Nora Batty from the long running comedy series 'Last of the Summer Wine', whilst the Colne Valley, also close by, is home to fictional 'Skelthwaite' from the successful series 'Where The Heart Is'.

love to have a break with my family (8 adults)the problem is my mobility have had two lovely holidays through sykes cottages. The problem is we have been too far away from amenities and flat areas for me to negotiate an outing by myself and became reliable on my family to drive me everywhere.
A wonderful house it was a shame to go home

Clouds Hill is a little look into how it would be if you won on lotto.
Our holiday was about the house swimming, huge meals with friends, relaxing.The space is wonderful and the furnishings comfortable
It was a pleasure to cook in the gleaming kitchen and I fell in love with the snake tap over the kitchen sink!!!
The owner met us and showed us around and was on hand via the telephone when the lights fused
People laugh when I say we went to Huddersfield on holiday until I tell them about the house. We also found many places to eat and shop
We worried a little over the off white carpets with wine, juice and felt tips and breathed a sigh of relief at the end of the week when no stains where evident
The house could be more geared to eating in than out by providing some serving dishes but that's my only complaint
We are at present thinking about booking again for 2014
Fantastic Stay with Friends

The House was ideal for a group of friends and made me feel like royalty for the week!! Swimming pool was well maintained and even managed a drink the local pub "The Woolpack". Overall, Top stay and would highly recommend.
Family holiday for my 60th
Loved having our own swimming pool
Left on 05/22/2013 for a stay in March 2013 | Family holiday for my 60th
It took us a while to get through the snow to the house, so we didn't plan on venturing out for a while, so can't say much about the area. We spent a lot of time in the swimming pool which was the highlight of the holiday.
The house was lovely, although I wouldn't recommend it for those with disabilities or very young children.
Great family house

We really enjoyed our stay - a family gathering for our Ruby Wedding. The owner met us there and showed us round - the personal touch was lovely. It was well placed for nearby towns, etc, though we stayed in the property most of the time, as we made very good use of the gym and the beautiful swimming pool. All the family, from a baby to great grandma enjoyed staying at Clouds Hill.
