No problem.

For trains between Sheffield and Brockholes (or Huddersfield) go here:
or here:
and put in the relevant placenames and dates.

For buses between Holmfirth and Brockholes (or even Holmfirth and 
Huddersfield) find times by going here and clicking on the Journey Planner 
or here (if it works):
then putting in the relevant placenames.   Irritatingly it only allows you 
to select up to 1st December but buses on Sunday 26th November or Monday 
27th November should still be relevant in December (surely?).   You can get 
a full timetable by clicking on the appropriate tag.

There seems to be plenty of choice!
