All about us

Sunnybank in the heart of “Last Of The Summer Wine” country.

We love welcoming guests to our family-owned boutique style guesthouse set in a quiet location with security monitored car parking yet only a short walk from the centre of Holmfirth. Strike out on foot in another direction and within minutes you’re in the unique countryside of the Peak District National Park. At Sunnybank we strive to offer exceptional accommodation with informal, yet attentive, service to ensure our guests feel like house guests at a friend’s country home.

We want your visit to be one you will remember and tell your friends and family about. We believe that certain elements to a boutique style guesthouse are indispensable, elegant reception rooms, relaxing decor, comfortable beds, sparkling bathrooms, large luxurious towels, a generous well-cooked tasty breakfast with interest and choice, and an ideal location. All this – added to stunning scenery – is what Sunnybank is all about.

……and what to do?

Take a scenic bus tour of the character’s favourite haunts including Sid’s Cafe & Norah Batty’s cottage. NB. Bill Owen (Compo) and Peter Sallis (Cleggy) are buried next door.

Right in the centre of Holmfirth, the Picturedrome is perhaps the best intimate music venue in the North of England. Make a night of it and stroll to one of the many excellent eateries before moving on to listen to and watch one of your favourite bands.

We are on the edge of the Peak District National Park offering magnificent scenery, exhilarating walks, testing cycle routes and inspiring photographic opportunities! Blow away the cobwebs and take a walk with the celebrated local artist – Ashley Jackson.

Let the train take the strain. Pop into Manchester for a day of culture or retail therapy. Try dim sum in China Town, explore a gallery or museum, shop in the Trafford or Arndale Centres, or catch an Imax film at the Printwork’s multiscreen cinema.

Take a tour of Holmfirth’s Vineyard or visit the world famous Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Explore the popular monthly Farmers’ Market. Throughout the year Holmfirth hosts many festivals of Art, Music & Food and Drink. Raining? drop down to the Mining Museum.

If it is peace and quiet you seek, then where better than at Sunnybank. Find a quiet corner of our garden, relax, watch the birds – tree creepers, jays, woodpeckers are regular visitors in the leafy canopy shading the flower borders.
