Hetton, along with its near neighbour Rylstone is one of the most popular villages in the upper Wharfedale community. The local Womens Institute were responsible for the famous charity calendar that later became a box office hit film 'Calendar Girls'. The stone houses clustered along the single high street date from the 17th and 18th Century with many outstanding family homes and a scattering of traditional old farmsteads. A thriving small and friendly community served by the Angel Inn, an award winning Gastro Pub with a wide reputation for outstanding beers and food, and full of atmosphere and charm with oak beams, nooks, crannies and crackling log fires. Close to Linton Falls on the River Wharfe, this is a superb walking area, with many paths to other villages, and easy access to the limestone fells. Down dale is the haunting Abbey ruins and Priory at Bolton Abbey, or the elegant town of Ilkley, overlooked by the famous Ilkley Moor. Up dale are Grassington, Kettlewell and Buckden, with spectacular limestone scenery. Hetton is a great base for exploring the local area with the market town of Skipton and its medieval castle a short drive away, and many other historic places including Bronte Country, Castle Howard, the elegant spa town of Harrogate, racing at Ripon and the majestic medieval city of York within easy motoring distance.

Previous visitors' comments about Virginia Cottage:
Excellent, we only live in Leeds, but this felt like another world. We will go back and stay again. A starter pack was there for the fire for the first evening. We then went to garage for coal and logs.
Mrs Hobson, Leeds, February 2013
The location was excellent and the house met expectations.
