Spread across seven acres of land, Holmfirth Vineyard pleases the eyes with unrivalled views of the Holme Valley. The vineyard produces a variety of red, white and rose English wines, using grapes chosen for their ability to thrive in the cooler British climate. The vineyard tours on site take visitors on a journey through the wine-making process, from vine to bottle, while wine tastings offer samples of the final product.
Guests can indulge in relaxation in the privacy of their apartments set at the foot of the vines. Designed to be as carbon neutral as possible, each one displays what is best about minimalistic decor, yet provides all that is needed for a comfortable stay: fully equipped kitchen, log burning stoves, en-suite bathrooms and TVs with DVD players.
Hearty Yorkshire breakfast, afternoon tea spread and light lunch options can be paired with panoramic views of the valley and an extensive wine list.
Groupon’s Guide To West Yorkshire
Approximately overlapping the historical West Riding of Yorkshire, the landlocked West Yorkshire stretches on miles of uplands and steep valleys populated by urban clusters or countryside settings, standing out as a mosaic of interplaying land formations washed by the rivers Aire and Clader.
West Yorkshire is home to the world’s first nature reserve, Walton Hall, and to the scenic Ilkley Moor, homeland of the county’s anthem and set for an array of unique rock formations. Outdoorsy types can embark on a climbing or bouldering adventure on The Chevin, without disregarding the scenic sights of Harewood House.
The riverside remains of the Sandal Castle in Wakefield, the Cartwright Hall and the Royal Armouries Museum are but few of the highlights that heritage and cultural tourism aficionados can visit while in West Yorkshire.
