historic character cottage in the picturesque village of Hinchliffe Mill, Holmfirth
The Old Wash Kitchen is a traditional, early 1800's weavers cottage nestling in the valley beside the river Holme in the village of Hinchliffe Mill in Holmfirth which lies at the foot of Holme Moss. It is right on the edge of the Yorkshire Pennines and the Peak district, with woodland, moorland, riverside and reservoir walks from the door. It's ideally located to explore all that Yorkshire and neighbouring Derbyshire have to offer.
Hinchliffe Mill and it's familiar views made famous in the hit comedy series, 'The Last of The Summer Wine', sits in a conservation area with characteristic, Yorkshire stone cottages centred around a 19th century woollen mill and the river Holme which can be heard babbling by. The cottage is surrounded by rolling green hills, open countryside and has an often described as 'amazing' view from the lounge window up to the the hills and over the river and mill pond, a haven to wildlife and birds including ducks, herons and kingfishers.
This cosy, spacious, family and dog friendly 2 bedroomed cottage, the lower half of a pair of 150 year old mill workers cottages, features original beams, exposed stonework, an Esse gas stove, intricately carved antique mahogany furniture and vaulted ceilings.
The Old Wash Kitchen is a perfect base for exploring with scenic walks and cycle rides from your door and with the benefit of a village shop, 2 local dog friendly pubs, one, The Stumble Inn, a typical village inn where our guests are always made to feel welcome by it's patrons and staff, and The Pickled Pheasant, being renowned for serving excellent food in stylish surroundings. There's also a tea room and a vineyard with it's own restaurant within a few minutes walk.
The centre of the small market town of Holmfirth, with it's array of independent shops, cafe's, pubs, bars, restaurants, it's bustling nightlife, and the Picturedrome live music venue, is a short, flat, scenic 1 mile stroll away so, whether it's a peaceful, scenic and authentically Yorkshire get away you're looking for, or being conveniently close to a small but vibrant town, with an eclectic mix of shops, eateries and bars, a bustling nightlife with something to suit everyone, then look no further than The Old Wash Kitchen where we look forward to welcoming you.

What Guests Say
Just back from a 2 night stay. From initial contact with Claire, to the return of the deposit even before we got back home, our experience has been incredible. Cosy. Spotless. Homely. Warm. Didn't want to get out of bed as they were so comfortable. Lovely welcome, with milk in the fridge for that cup of tea after a long drive. Shop 1 minute away for essentials, lovely town 2 minute drive away, 5 fantastic reservoir walks, all within a 10 minute drive away. Took 2 boys (12 and 16, yes, funny names for children) who don't like to be separated from gaming consoles, and they can't wait to go back. Great value for money. You know sometimes there's always something that takes the shine off? Well, we couldn't find fault with anything, and we're getting to the age where we like to grumble. Thank you Claire, your hospitality has created family memories that are priceless.

Felt like home
Had a great few nights here, The cottage was really cosy, clean and felt like home straight away. Walk to Holmfirth takes 20 minutes down one straight road where there is lots of bars and restaurants.
Would highly recommend sunday lunch at The Pickled Pheasant which is a 5 minute walk away. Food and service was amazing! Even visited the farm where they source their meat from and had an amazing breakfast.
Claire & Darrell were great throughout the booking process and the welcome pack was a lovely touch.
Would highly recommend a stay here!
