The property

Resting amidst beautiful heather-clad moorland in Cragg Vale, a village in West Yorkshire, is Shep Cottage, a mid-terrace stone-built cottage with underfloor heating and attractive interior.

Decorated with a mix of contemporary and classic style, this cottage makes a wonderful base for your outdoor adventures in West Yorkshire, and is not far from the bustling, bohemian town of Hebden Bridge.

Be welcomed into a stylish open-plan living space, where a fitted kitchen rests at the front of the house complete with a good range of appliances including an electric oven with a gas hob and a slimline dishwasher.

Step across the wood tiled floor, passing the rustic breakfast bar dining area, and relax on one of the sophisticated mustard yellow sofas, perfectly positioned around the woodburning stove and the Smart TV.

The red brick of the fireplace and exposed beams on the ceiling add bags of character to this renovated terrace, and with views of the moorlands beyond out of the windows it makes a lovely space to wind down in.

Head upstairs to find the two lovely bedrooms, each continuing the warm mustard colour scheme, consisting of a king-size bedroom and a single bedroom, all served by the neat shower room.

Enjoy dining alfresco or sipping a morning coffee on the patio, with shared lockable storage with the neighbouring properties for bikes here too.

Shep Cottage makes a lovely location for a country break in West Yorkshire.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1051077, together sleeping up to 7 guests.

  • “This is our second visit to Shep Cottage and it is highly likely that we will be back.”

    The cottage is still like new and the owners are available to contact if there are any questions. The cottage is well equipped which is very useful for self catering during the current pandemic. However, we were recommended to go to Bob's tea room and this was a real treat. We also enjoyed the full english breakfast at Craggies.

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.
