  • "Lovely property everything we needed and towels and throws left for dogs and treats for us and them :)."

    Weather wasn’t best so didn’t take advantage of lovely walks in area but walked towpath from Hebden bridge (a short drive) to Sowerby Bridge and got the train back. Lots to see and do in area and Helen is lovely :)

  • "We really enjoyed our stay here - Cragg Vale is fascinating - the sound of water flowing down in the vale (Turvin Clough) is so soothing."

    Gorgeous spot for exploring Calderdale. Comfortable and clean. The welcome pack and supply of tea, coffee and milk is a lovely touch. We will be back!! Craggies just up the road is a must for breakfast as well as for prepared meals as take aways. We walked miles and really had a lovely time.

  • "A very comfortable property with everything we needed for a memorable holiday."

    The instructions for finding it were very good and everything in the property was as per the website description. We would be very happy to make a return visit if in the area.

  • "The fact that this is the second time we have stayed in Hove Wood View this year speaks volumes."

    The treats that Helen leaves on arrival is a lovely touch and it was good to meet her (briefly) again when on her rounds, and she couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. This is an ideal spot for touring the Calderdale Valley - and particularly for visiting Hebden Bridge, where we used to live many years ago. The Robin Hood Inn just down the road serves excellent food at reasonable prices, and we still have a number of friends in the area, so this proves to be the perfect location to meet up with them all. The scenery is great too!

    It's location was peaceful and picturesque with good access to local attractions. We enjoyed a very relaxing weekend.

  • "Lovely cottage and clear instructions from Helen on how to gain access and places to visit in the area."

    The views from the back were fabulous so it was great to sit outside. The only downside was the sloping roof upstairs, as you have to be careful when you get out of bed that you don’t hit your head. It wasn’t really a problem for me as I’m quite short! We did get out and about visiting Hebden Bridge, Hardcastle Craag, the Brontë village(Tadworth) and some lovely pubs- the White House and Top Brink Inn, plus bought a few pies for the journey home from Craggies Farm shop.

  • "Really nice accommodation which was very clean, comfortable, well equipped with a nice view."

    The host was so welcoming and provided many little extras which was very kind and made it a lovely stay. Unfortunately there was no secure outside space for a dog and it was on a busy road. Although it didn’t spoil our stay I think people with dogs need to be made aware of it before booking as it would make a difference . You need to use the car each day to take the dog out for walks .

    Kept us informed of every detail. Information provided and so very useful. Although we didn't cook etc everything was provided. Basic supplies were provided. Which was really appreciated. Would highly recommend both the owner and agent.

  • "We had a really lovely stay at Hove Wood View while we walked part of the Pennine Way."

    There were really thoughtful touches like wine and chocolates, and even a towel we could use to dry our dog (who managed to fall in a bog on the second day). It was the perfect place to come back to after a day's walking: hot and powerful shower, well-equipped kitchen to cook a meal and a lovely view! Highly recommended!

  • "Lovely cottage clean and well maintained."

    Was a little disappointed that it was situated next to a road with traffic noise. The bedrooms are rather small and only full headroom in half the space which was not obvious from the details.

  • "Cottage was beautifully located and amenities were carefully and thoughtfully provided."

    Never been to a cottage with so many thoughtful amenities, was lovely. Upstairs was lovely and beds were very comfortable. Down side was the heavy strong smell of dog downstairs, the quite steep drop over the wall (not great for small children or bounding doggies), no garden and the very busy road the cottage is directly on. But I’m sure had I read the write ups I would have been more aware of these slight drawbacks. Overall a pleasant stay with a very thoughtful owner.

  • "Comfortable, warm, well-equipped."

    Stunning views across and down the valley with lovely walks right from the door. Cragg Vale is a lovely spot, criss-crossed with well-waymarked paths. The only nitpick was that the cottage description didn't make it clear that Hove Wood View is the middle cottage in a terrace of three - we thought it would be detached and standing on its own. That said, it was spacious enough and didn't spoil our fortnight. This was the 30th cottage we've stayed in and is one of the best.

The property

A delightful, stone-built terraced cottage set on a high ridge overlooking the tiny hamlet of Cragg Vale, with breathtaking views of the valley and surrounding countryside, four miles from Hebden Bridge.

This cottage is one of three first-class holiday cottages in this beautiful and undiscovered location.

This Cragg Vale cottage boasts quality accommodation, including a charming master bedroom with Velux window to take advantage of the vistas, a wonderfully presented open-plan living area with full length patio doors leading to the terrace, a designer kitchen, and a lovely contemporary feel throughout the accommodation.

Slump into the plush sofa or the comfy armchair in the sitting area and fully relax into your Cragg Vale holiday.

Two bedrooms to choose from include a twin resting and the double under the eaves of the roof, both presented with a modern, clean finish.

Visit nearby Hebden Bridge with its lively nightlife, curiosity shops and the old cinema where they serve tea and scones at the interval.

Enjoy walks from the doorstep onto the nearby moorland, or, just a few miles away, take in the delights of the Bronte Moors, visit the village of Heptonstall with its two historic pubs, or explore the home of the Bronte sisters in nearby Haworth.

With the bustling town of Skipton also within an easy drive, this is a superb, modern-style accommodation to be enjoyed at any time of the year.

About the location


Hebden Bridge 3.7 miles; Todmorden 8.1 miles; Halifax 8.9 miles.

The beautiful Pennine village of Cragg Vale is situated on the steep and winding Cragg Road and is the longest incline in England, still a major challenge to cyclists. The road winds its way up to beautiful heather-clad moorland, 1000 feet above sea level, and wooded cloughs and babbling brooks that cascade down the hillsides beckon the walker to explore the countryside. On the other side of the valley is the village of Luddenden and the glorious oak woodlands that make up Jerusalem Farm, a local nature reserve made famous by TV's In Loving Memory. In fact, this beautiful area has also featured in TV shows Happy Valley and Last Tango in Halifax. Nearby Hebden Bridge is a diverse and bohemian town home to restaurants, bars, bistros, markets, an independent cinema, art galleries, and the picturesque Rochdale Canal. A scenic car ride over the moors takes you to the splendid Parsonage Museum which commemorates the famous Bronte family. The area is a must for steam railway enthusiasts who will enjoy the thriving Worth Valley Railway. Skipton, "Gateway to the Dales", is also an easy and scenic car ride away.
