  • "It's a beautifully situated house with fantastic views."

    The house is very well equipped and has amazing facilities. We particularly enjoyed the themed rooms, luxurious bathrooms, garden and hot tub. Lots to do and see in the area. We had a wonderful holiday.

  • "Lovely, lovely house in a splendid setting."

    I felt we could sense the history of the valley, you could imagine you were a character from Gentleman Jack, wandering down the hill. The owners was nice and helpful as well, we would certainly head back there again. The location was very good, less than 10 mins into Halifax where there's lots to do but also very rural, with lots of farms and small tracks to explore (running) Its all very steep tho, but that's the part of Yorkshire for you. The hot tub is nice also with a great view of Shibden Valley. The Pub at the bottom of the hill is also excellent.

  • "Lee House farm was a great place to reunite my family flying into Manchester from USA and Dubai for Christmas."

    Stephen and Wendy were most helpful prior to my visit and Robertshaw’s Farmshop was certainly the place to find for all food shopping. The house was beautifully decorated for the festive season and very well appointed for our mainly adult party of ten. Stephen even went above and beyond by supplying an extra TV box so my grandsons could watch the football! The one morning we awoke to sunshine gave us an idea of just what a beautiful location, looking across a valley, the farmhouse commands. Certainly an area to visit again in Spring or Summer!

    Thanks for the wonderful feedback Sue. So glad you chose us for your festive family reunion. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon - perhaps a long weekend for your 80th celebrations? Property Owner

  • "After struggling through storm Babette ,Lee House Farm certainly was a most wonderful " port in a storm " ."

    A lovely welcome pack awaited us which was much appreciated . The house feels like a much loved home with it's grand & comfortable decor throughout . Lovely bedding & towels, everywhere beautifully clean . The kitchen is an amazing warm space to cook & socialise in. Stephen was easily contactable by phone for further instruction using the Everhot range- which I had mastered by the end of the weekend . Instructions had already been sent & I would definitely recommend reading them before you arrive. The hot tub area is brilliant with it's stunning views & the walk down through the fields was enjoyed by all , especially our dog. I can't speak highly enough of this holiday home & would certainly recommend & hope to return ourselves . Friendly neighbours.

    We're so pleased that you had such a lovely time at Lee House Farm! Thank you for the great feedback! Property Owner

  • "We stayed at Lee House Farm for a long weekend away with friends and 7 children."

    The house was absolutely perfect with everything we needed to keep the adults and children entertained. Comfy beds, fully equipped kitchen and endless bathrooms made for a very comfortable and hassle free stay. The conservatory room is lovely in the evening with fairy lights creating a relaxing environment for dinner. The hot tub is a fantastic addition and we were lucky enough to have blue skies with stunning views but it would still have been lovely whatever the weather. The hosts were also brilliant, communication before arriving and during our stay was great including some foolproof directions and lots of information about the house and surrounding area. Any query we had was answered straight away and Wendy went above and beyond to assist us. Excellent hosts all round! Would recommend to anyone with large groups whatever age.

    We're delighted that you had everything you needed at Lee House Farm, and particularly that you enjoyed the fairy lights in the conservatory and the hot tub! Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Lee House Farm."

    The host was welcoming and provided a lovely touch with the welcome hamper on arrival. The house itself is beautiful and spacious. The large kitchen, conservatory/dining area were great rooms to cook, congregate and dine! The little secret maize tucking the hot tub was a great surprise as you come out to it and see the spectacular views of Shibden Valley... amazing! We hope to return!

    We're so glad that you had a lovely stay and enjoyed the hot tub and beautiful views! We would love to welcome you back again. Property Owner

  • "This is a fantastic property, there is so much space both in and outdoors!"

    The hosts are offsite but were super helpful both before and during our stay. The land with the house is simply beautiful, we walked through the beautiful fields, met the sheep and went down to the pond where you will find seating and a firepit. The bed was probably the most comfortable bed iv ever slept in! The bedding and towels are luxury and the free-standing bath was the icing on the cake! We hired a private chef for the weekend, he spoke very highly of the kitchen appliances, storage and fridge space and had all the utensils etc needed to cater for 15 of us. There are lots of little touches like children's books in the bunk bed rooms, books of interest for the adults, DVDs, beautiful furnishings and a great guest handbook that all just adds at 'home from home' feeling. I would highly recommend this property and we will stay again in the future.

    Hello Amy Thanks for your fantastic comments. We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Lee House Farm! Wendy & Stephen Property Owner

The property

Lee House Farm is a magnificent, stone built property set in the unspoilt and peaceful Shibden Valley.

The property is beautifully decorated and well-appointed throughout, with themed bedrooms, character features and stunning, far reaching views of this picturesque, historic valley, made famous by the BBC/HBO series Gentleman Jack. This wonderful home makes the perfect base for families, friends and couples who are coming together to celebrate a family event, seeking a refreshing escape to the country or just want a base to explore Yorkshire.

Set over three floors, the house boasts five well-presented bedrooms, four of which have their own en-suite facilities, the fifth being adjacent to the main family bathroom. The house provides many areas for larger groups to gather, unwind and enjoy the many features this farm has to offer.

The ground-floor boasts a spacious conservatory with large oak dining table (seating up to 14) and sofas to relax on, the well-equipped kitchen/diner is perfect for brunch or relaxing with a book in the living room, in front of the wood-burning stove.

Immediately outside the conservatory is a patio with seating area, the perfect spot for a morning coffee or whiling away the hours in the sun.

Just beyond is a fabulous garden and entertaining space with unobstructed views of the valley, seating, a fire-pit, BBQ and under-cover bar area with fridge, or seek out the secret garden and soak up the views whilst relaxing in the hot-tub!

All of the outdoor areas are well lit and can be enjoyed well into the evening, whatever the season. Set in 10 acres of private farmland with only a flock of sheep and wild deer for company, the farm is perfect for responsible dog owners and also provides an ideal equine retreat.

With ample parking for horse boxes, 4 available stables and numerous bridleways and paths throughout the valley. For the nature lovers, a picnic in the secluded bottom field is the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon.

Watch the comings and goings at the pond, gather some wood and build a fire in the wooded glade, or get your wellies on and follow Red Beck to Shibden Mill Inn, a short ‘scramble’ from the pond, it may be the 14th Best Gastro-Pub in the UK, but dogs will get a Yorkshire welcome too!

Further afield, Halifax is only a short drive away, once the centre of the Yorkshire wool industry, Piece Hall, where wool was once traded, now provides a vibrant cultural centre for residents and visitors alike.

You can enjoy great restaurants and bars, browse independent stores and experience concerts in a unique and unforgettable setting, now a well-established concert venue, recent performances have included Tom Jones, Madness, Blondie and New Order. If you want to venture further afield, jump in the car and discover the vibrant Yorkshire towns of Hebden Bridge (of Happy Valley fame), the World Heritage Site of Saltaire, Haworth (birthplace of the Bronte Sisters) or Holmfirth (Last of the Summer Wine).

For a full day out in nature, set out to discover the true beauty of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, brimming with rolling hills, quaint villages, and picturesque walking trails.

About the location


Skipton 25 miles; Harrogate 29 miles;

Halifax is a minster town in West Yorkshire historically known for its woollen manufacturing starting in the 15th century. Now it stands as one of the best spots to observe Georgian and Victorian landmarks, including Piece Hall, a Grade I listed building boasting unique architecture and a lot of history surrounding the past industries of the area. Surrounded by the Calderdale Industrial Museum, Halifax Central Library, and a wide selection of eateries and shops to explore, this historical landmark makes a great focal point for your trip in the town. Halifax offers something for everyone; the Eureka! National Children's Museum promises a fun-filled day out for all the family, whereas the two theatres of Victoria Theatre and Halifax Playhouse offer a great opportunity to get involved in culture and watch fantastic performances. Just a short drive away you will stumble across the bustling city of Bradford, the world's first UNESCO City of Film, be sure to visit the National Science and Media Museum, along with diving into the culture of Britain's 'curry capital' and dining in a delicious Indian restaurant. If you head south you will find Huddersfield, with its Lawrence Batley Theatre, art gallery and various historical landmarks, it also offers ample opportunities to immerse yourself in a cultural experience. Close to the vibrant city of Leeds and surrounded by plenty of action and activity, Halifax makes a brilliant base for exploring the wonders of West Yorkshire.
