This is my first experience using a rental company for a holiday cottage.. Using Sykes was seamless. When I had a question, it was immediately answered which was appreciated. 12 Rattle Row exceeded my expectations. It was comfortable and clean. The owner was very responsive. There were several unexpected extras...the ginger cookies, candy and fruit that were available. There were many pamphlets as to where eat and places to go.
The shower was easy to operate (unlike some of the places I have stayed in the UK). The bed was comfortable. I cannot believe how well I slept. The kitchen, which I did not really use for cooking, was fully equipped with a nice stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, dishes, pots and pans, etc.
The view from the terrace and the property windows was breathtaking. The property is about a 2 minute walk from the town center.
The only issues some may have is that walking to the property could be an issue if you are not capable of climbing hills or the cobblestones. It is possible to drive as I understand it but parking is limited. There are three floors and the stairs are narrow. The bathroom is on the third floor. I did not find it to be a problem but it helps to be aware of this before renting.
If I return to Holmfirth next year this property will be on my list of places to stay. It is a lovely property and fabulous location.
