"Lovely House and Lovely setting!"
We were a group of 10 - 2 families with young adult 'kids'! We stayed for a long weekend in January. The house itself was really lovely, the kitchen was stunning and very well equipped. The kids enjoyed the hot tub on a cold January night! The area too is stunning. We particularly enjoyed our visit to Holmfirth Vineyards and our walk around Digley Reservoir. The rest of the time we stayed in - eating, drinking, having fun in the games room and generally enjoying each others company in fab surroundings!

"We enjoyed a very happy holiday in what was an ideal family house catering for all ages."
This was our first stay in Holmfirth and we weren't quite prepared for the steep hills! The house was an excellent family house of a good standard, interesting in layout in that it enabled each part of the extended family to have their own section, useful when there were 4 children (age range 7-18months!) and the children were well catered for with a games room and trampoline. There were lots of steps as the house is set on a hillside.
It is an excellent centre - Huddersfield and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park were highlights - and the countryside and villages around are well worth a visit. Holmfirth itself has lots to offer beside the 'Summer Wine' attractions.
We had 2 dogs but it was quite difficult to find walks for them nearby - we would have liked some information about this. However, we all enjoyed a happy, comfortable stay at Oaklands.

Great house, lovely interior and best of all the fantastic family dining kitchen that we spent most of the weekend in!! Could maybe do with better outdoor space but we all loved it and would go back.
