Bringing Your Dog


To help with your stay

To make your stay with your canine companion/s easier, and to lighten your load, we provide doggy towels for after muddy and wet walks, a doggy bucket - a suggestion by a previous guest so you can give the mud monsters dirty paws a wash down, and spare bowls - just in case! 


As fellow dog owners of Seth, a Husky Collie cross and Laska a Siberian Husky, we felt that we just had to allow dogs at The old Wash Kitchen, not least because of the abundance of walks which we know you'll love to enjoy with your canine companions but also because of the sheer number of dog friendly shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants in the local area who love to cater for you and your furry friends. 

You'll be spoilt for choice in Holmfirth for pubs, restaurants and cafe's who will welcome you and your dog.

The nearest ones to the cottage are less than a 5 - 10 minute walk away.

The Stumble Inn, at Hinchliffe Mill, a traditional but friendly local, is only 150 yards away and The Pickled Pheasant at Holmbridge is less than a 10 minute walk away. They both currently serve food.

Holmfirth Vineyard is  a 10 minute walk away and here you can dine whilst taking in the glorious views and book a tour of the vineyard too.

The Fleece at Holme is around 25 - 30 minutes walk away and is perfect to stop for lunch after a walk around the numerous reservoirs in the area. They also have a small store which serves sandwiches if you fancy a quick bite. 

Into Holmfirth town centre a scenic, short, flat, 20 minute stroll away the choice is endless! 

The Nook serve real ales, some of which are from their own micro brewery and a fantastic Nook burger!

En-Route cafe, Bloc Cafe, The Wrinkled Stocking, Y's Bar & SnapRibbles of Holmfirth, Sid's Cafe, The Tap House, The Old Bridge Inn, The Whippet & Pickle and The Elephant and Castle all allow dogs in.

For daytime walks or a drive out, around 2.5 miles away, there is Philomena Foggs at Thongsbridge which is a dog friendly restaurant/cafe. They actually started up as a place to take your dog to dine out. Around the corner is Albion Cycling shop and Cafe and up the other side of the valley, at Netherthong, there's The Cricketers pub and The Cider Press which is a cafe where Pure North Cider is produced - it's a must for any cider fan!

At Totties around 3.5 miles away you'll find, a personal favourite, The Olive Tree, a bistro with stunning views and it's own garden centre. The Red Lion at Jackson Bridge serve good 'pub grub'. 

If you're heading out on a moorland walk you may stumble upon The Huntsman which lies on the road to Saddleworth and if you fancy a drive out there's so many more places that you're sure to be welcomed.

The only problem is you're going to need more time to enjoy all these!
