  • "A really nice cottage."

    Well equipped and comfortable with plenty of parking. Great for walking and cycling. Shame the local pub has closed, like so many.

    Beautiful cottage Well equipped Had difficulty using the smart tv but that is mainly because we have Sky Q and didn’t want to try accessing the digital information Would highly recommend this cottage

  • "We booked this last minute, the cottage was absolutely beautiful."

    Had absolutely everything you could possibly need. It was super spacious and in a beautiful remote area. The cottage was so clean too. We went for a walk near by and a pub lunch at the Old Gate in Hebden bridge which was lovely too! Overall the stay was perfect and we will definitely be back!

  • "We loved the cottage, it felt very homely but also modern."

    Great comfortable beds. Underfloor heating downstairs was lovely and lovely soft carpets upstairs. There was a Christmas tree in which was a lovely touch thank you! We had snow but there was grit for the drive which we only noticed once it had melted. Overall, a great cottage and i would highly recommend

    The owner seemed to have thought of everything down to a pint of milk in the fridge! The beds were very comfortable and the cottage was lovely and warm. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

  • "A beautiful cottage in a stunning location."

    The cottage was spotless on arrival and decorated to a very high standard, we were very impressed. We had everything we needed and were very well informed of everything before and during our stay. The shower was amazing, beds were comfy and good storage for all your belongings. The wood burner is a fantastic touch too. Very cosy and very homely when you get back from a days adventure. Hebden Bridge is a must as its a beautiful little town to walk round, lots of little cafes and bars and a lovely market, a playground for the children and a nice walk by the canal. We ate at the White House one evening and it was a fantastic meal so would highly recommend! Blackpool was only just over an hour away and Leeds was nice for shopping. We would highly recommend this cottage, the only thing I would say is, and it's just personal preference, is that we have 2 boys and they had to share a double bed and it's a shame that either 2 singles or a bunk bed weren't available. This certainly did not interfere but would have just been slightly better for us as a family and we were fully aware of this at the time of booking. We would love to go back to Mount Pleasant at some point and have certainly marked it as one of our favourites!! We have no doubt that this will be a five star property on trip advisor when word gets out!!

    It is evidently brand new and that’s what we liked. It had all the essentials and all information provided was very clear. We met the owner Pete and he was very genuine and friendly. It is a great base to go off and visit local areas. We really enjoyed our stay.(2 adults and a 6 week old baby)

  • "Absolutely first class accommodation."

    Spotlessly clean, fully kitted out with everything you could need, generous welcome pack, great location, comfy beds, beautiful views, friendly owners. Just a one mile walk to Craggies farm shop and cafe. Lots to do in the area and lots of lambs in the field right opposite when we stayed there. It is right on the road, so if road noise would put you off, please reconsider booking this house. It didn't bother us at all, but we were aware of it, and in summer with windows open, it could be an issue for some. Thank you for a perfect relaxing break.

    It’s in a lovely location, with great views over the moors. The cottage is modern and really well equipped. The wood burner is a lovely touch too and a log fire in the evening is a great way to finish off a day exploring Yorkshire. Would highly recommend.

About the location


Hebden Bridge 4 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.
