    “Towngate cottage is beautiful, and ...”
    Towngate cottage is beautiful, and stylishly decorated and furnished. The bathroom is lovely, and the heating - radiators, fire and underfloor - make the place snug and toasty. The village is historic and fascinating, and the two pubs, fantastic tea rooms and helpful shop ensured we were well fed. The washer drier was essential as I got very muddy. I loved everything about my week and would happily book again.

About the location


Hebden Bridge 1.5 mile; Haworth 8 miles.

The village of Heptonstall is set high on a prominent hillside above its close neighbour, Hebden Bridge. Heptonstall is one of West Yorkshire's best kept secrets; a wonderfully preserved village with a main street that has changed very little in the last 200 years. Formerly an important centre for hand-loom weaving, the village still retains its original trading hall, while the old Grammar School, by the churchyard, is now a museum testifying to the village's illustrious past. The churchyard is also the burial home for the writer Sylvia Plath, a former wife of the Poet Laureate Ted Hughes. In the centre are the two remaining pubs, the Cross Inn, believed to date from the early 17th century, and the White Lion, rumoured to be haunted by a Roundhead on a horse, a throwback to when the village was besieged during the Civil War. Nearby is the attractive town of Hebden Bridge, while the area is a must for steam railway enthusiasts who will enjoy the thriving Worth Valley Railway. Skipton, the Gateway to the Dales, is an easy and scenic car ride away.
