Set in Cragg Vale, an area of outstanding natural beauty near Hebden Bridge, our old stone building which previously housed tractors and forestry equipment, has been transformed into three quality holiday cottages. The elevated position in a steep-sided wooded valley affords the cottages with fabulous moor and woodland views. Although ""Cragg"" as it is known locally, is secluded and peaceful, it is also a central location for visiting Yorkshire and Lancashire with road and direct rail links to Leeds and Manchester nearby. 300yds from the Calderdale Way and with numerous local walks, the cottages are ideal for people looking to explore the local countryside. With direct access onto the longest continuous incline in England, cyclists can relish the challenge of riding this difficult route up onto the heather clad moors. Mountain bikers have their own set of demanding routes and this area is considered ""A Nexus for mountain bikers"" (Everyday Cycling Magazine).The local moorland golf course offers some majestic views. The local bus ""The Cragg Flyer"" stops just outside the cottages for journeys to Mytholmroyd (2miles), Hebden Bridge (4miles) or just down the road to a true local pub 'The Robin Hood'. The Hinchliffe Arms country restaurant and bar is also within walking distance.
The nearby town of Hebden bridge has been described as ""4th funkiest town in the world"" and ""most individual least cloned shopping in Britain"" so it's got to be worth a look. From Trendy Cafes to £4-50 Roast Dinners, Skateboards to Canal Barges, Theatre to Street Entertainment, Gentle strolls to Fell Running, Industrial Heritage to Alternative Technology, Art Galleries to Live Music, Poet Laureate to Open Mic Storytelling, Double Decker housing to outstanding natural beauty Hebden Bridge has it all. If you do feel like venturing out of the Pennine centre the Bronte village of Haworth, Skipton, Bradford, Leeds, York and Manchester are all within easy reach.
Our cottages are set in their own walled and gated garden with ample level, floodlit parking. The light and spacious cottages open onto an all day sunny patio from where you can enjoy the views. Downstairs, the open plan accommodation provides a comfortable lounge, dining area and modern fitted kitchen.
