  • "Positives: Nicely decorated cottage in a lovely quiet area surrounded by nature and some good walks."

    The bed is comfortable and the kitchen is well appointed for cooking. WIFI is really good and Freeview / Netflix is available. Negatives: Sadly, the back garden is scruffy and needs a good tidy up. There are piles of what looks like building materials lying around, and the decking has seen better days - it's really very slippery with moss. I was left with 1/4 of a toilet roll and no washing up liquid. The owner told me that it was my responsibility to buy these things and ensure enough was left for other guests, however, that was not done for me, so their system clearly doesn't work. This was rectified eventually, and one of the owner's family members dropped these items off for me. I'd recommend making it very clear that guests need to bring their own essentials, including loo roll and washing up liquid. I also had to clean up dog mess in the garden and dog wee in the living room from the previous guest. Nothing was done to rectify this, it very much seemed that I wasn't believed when I reported this to Sykes and the owner. Overall, it's a good base for walking and visiting attractions such as Shibden Hall. Perhaps a bit of a tidy up and a better system for leaving guests with the essentials would be useful.

About the location


Hebden Bridge 4 miles; Halifax 5 miles.

Luddenden is a conservation village in Calderdale, close to Hebden Bridge. The community is first mentioned in 1284, and in 1375 a corn mill was moved from Warley Town to exploit the Luddenden Brook. Nearby, the attractive town of Hebden Bridge is the home to the

picturesque Rochdale Canal and a delightful Victorian railway station. The town of Mytholmroyd is an easy drive away, the birthplace of Poet Laureate Ted Hughes, and famous for the Cragg Vale Coiners. This is excellent walking country, with the National Trust Hardcastle Crags and the Pennine Way, plus the area hosted the Tour De France in 2014. Enjoy scenic drives and cycling across the moors, whilst nearby Haworth boasts the Parsonage Museum commemorating the famous Bronte family who lived there. The area is also a must for steam railway enthusiasts who will enjoy the thriving Worth Valley Railway, whilst Halifax is noted for its unique Piece Hall, Dean Clough mill complex of art galleries, theaters and restaurants, as well as the highly-acclaimed Eureka Children’s Museum.
