About Ash House and Home
Ash House is an early Victorian mill owner’s residence overlooking fields and countryside on the outskirts of Holmfirth but just ten minutes’ walk from shops, cafes and restaurants in the centre of the famous Summer Wine town. The house has ample off road parking and large, attractive gardens and is a suitable start point for a number of scenic country walks, for which we are happy to provide maps and guide books.
Full English breakfasts are cooked in an AGA in a traditional kitchen using ingredients from national award winning butcher Brindon Addy who is supplied exclusively by local farms. Vegetarian breakfast is also offered. For lunches and evening meals we can recommend several excellent restaurants and cafes in the town and you will find links to several of these businesses on the Links page of our website.
Accommodation is in the form of a spacious three room suite in an extension to the main property and a twin room in the main house. The suite comprises a large double bedroom with sitting area (19′ x 13’3″), en-suite shower room with toilet and wash basin and also a generous private lounge / dining room (23′ x 14’4″). The lounge makes the suite ideal for relaxing in the evening and as a daytime base for visitors staying for a few days. The twin room measures 14’3″ x 13’4″ and features an en-suite toilet, wash basin and bath. Guests in the twin room are served breakfast in the main house dining room. Our rooms are equipped with televisions and tea and coffee making facilities. Rooms also have wonderful window views of town and country.
As has always been the case, Ash House is, first and foremost, a family home and it is our intention to offer a high standard of service with a friendly and personal touch. We look forward to meeting you.
Accommodation in the suite is characterful and quirky with a definite retro theme. The large bedroom boasts a comfortable king sized bed and the en-suite facilities comprise shower, toilet and wash basin with permanent hot water heated by our AGA. The adjacent lounge/dining room has a television and video, two leather sofas and is home to a selection of vintage toys and games and an extensive library of automotive books! Breakfast is served at a six seater hardwood dining table. A foldaway single bed can be provided for couples with a young child.
From the suite there is direct access to the rear garden and seated patio area which has delightful open views.
The twin room, which has fine view from its large sash window, is decorated in a traditional style and has an en-suite bathroom with toilet and wash basin with water heated by the AGA in the kitchen below. The twin beds are separated by a small bedside table but can be pushed together, should you so desire! Guests in the twin room eat in the splendid main house dining room which boasts original decorative features and an attractive valley view.
Visitors to Ash House are welcome to spend time in the gardens. There is seating on the patio at the rear of the house and it is also possible to sit by the pond in the front garden.
