Holmfirth 2 miles; Glossop 16 miles.
The old traditional pennine village of Hepworth is situated in the heart of the beautiful Holme Valley, on the edge of the West Yorkshire Pennines. Mentioned in the Doomsday Book, the village is made up of lovely old stone cottages, a beautiful church and an excellent pub/restaurant. The village has many traditions including the centuries old Hepworth Feast, which commemorates the end of the Great Plague in Hepworth and is held annually on the last Saturday in June. Hepworth along with its nearby neighbour Holmfirth, will be remembered by most as being the home of Compo, Cleggy and Nora Batty, from the long running comedy series 'Last of the Summer Wine', whilst the nearby Colne Valley is home to the fictional 'Skelthwaite' from the successful TV series 'Where the Heart Is'. A lovely area steeped in history where visitors always enjoy the genuine hospitality of a thriving local community.

Previous visitors' comments about Bray Cottage:
The swimming pool was excellent, great size, very clean and so useful for keeping the children occupied.
Mrs Mckeown, London, February 2013
We all loved Bray Cottage. It is roomy, comfortable and very attractive. The location is a good base for lots of sightseeing and activities.
Ms Mchardy, Peterculter, July 2012
We have been using self catering cottages for 8 years, this is the best of them all. The owners were helpful and friendly. The cottage wanted for nothing and the involvement in the farm was a bonus for us with two children. We would definitely recommend this property, they have thought of everything!
Mrs Smith, Wallasey, March 2012
The swimming pool was lovely and the cottage was warm, welcoming and very clean.
