Set amongst the outstanding Pennine countryside high above Hebden Bridge, this characterful cottage makes a wonderful rural retreat yet has excellent train links.
This beautiful, 17th-century, stone-built farmhouse cottage can be found amongst the outstanding Pennine countryside high above Hebden Bridge. It is set in a simply breathtaking rural location, on a non-working farm, where the owners keep a small flock of sheep and a dog. The cottage adjoins the owners’ home, and has been completely renovated, yet has retained its character and charm with a stone entrance porch, exposed beams, original stone fireplace and large mullioned windows with spectacular views from each one. A luxurious hot tub sits on one side of the south-facing, flagstone patio; to the other side is the barbecue and outside dining area - the perfect place where you can relax and take in the peace and tranquility whilst absorbing the surrounding panoramic landscape.
Excellent walking and cycling are both available direct from the door, as the farm backs onto the Calderdale Way with the National Trust’s Hardcastle Crags and the Pennine Way close by. Although accessed by a farm track and in a rural location, just a 10-minute walk will take you to a local pub serving food (where the local bus stops), whilst the local shop/post office is just 5 minutes further. The cottage is 1½ miles from Hebden Bridge with its abundance of shops, cafés and independent retailers, about 30 minutes on foot or less than 10 minutes by local bus. The local equestrian centre and Hebden Bridge Golf Course are both within 5 minutes by car.
A scenic 20-minute drive will take you to Haworth with its wonderful cobbled high street and most famous as the home of the Brontë sisters. Around 50 minutes by car is the market town of Skipton, known as ‘Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales’, and the Peak District National Park can also be reached in around an hour. Hebden Bridge has excellent rail links to the cities of Leeds, Manchester and York, and for children, the highly acclaimed Eureka Museum can be reached in around ½ an hour. Shop/post office, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
