  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this lovely cottage."

    The surrounding scenery is beautiful & its actually hard to believe you're on a working farm, our grandson was invited to see newborn lambs, he absolutely loved it. We had an issue with our disabled son but the owner was really kind & understanding. My mother, in her seventies, travelled with us & she struggled a bit on the stairs as there's no bannister. Thanks for the welcome gift & for allowing us to visit your beautiful cottage, we'd definitely visit again.

    Absolutely beautiful setting, great walks with the dogs, nice eating places. The cottage had all the creature comforts you could want, the hot tub and wood burner were a big success. Would highly recommend.

  • "Perfect getaway location."

    Stunning views. The house is well equipped with everything you could possibly need, was like home from home. We loved the hot tub and was lucky we had some nice weather. The house is on a working farm but still felt very private and secluded due to the fields surrounding. The sunrise in the morning is just so beautiful. Wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely be retuning. Thank you

    The location is lovely and the cottage provided everything we needed. There were even some very welcome treats provided on arrival. We have already recommended it to friends and family and will look to stay again in the future.

    It’s the perfect place to stay, with local walks/pubs, but also everything in the cottage needed to enjoy just staying in. Will definitely return again and continue to recommend to friends and family!

  • "We had a lovely weekend at the cottage, such a wonderful space with gorgeous views."

    So much to do in the area and explore, but equally could have just sat in front of the fire all day enjoying the landscapes. We were met by a lovely fresh loaf, butter and bottle on arrival too which was a nice touch. Beds very comfortable. The only two things to mention for future consideration are that the hot tub was not hot enough to use on the first night. We arrived at 3pm and by 5/6pm it was still not to temperature. Host was very apologetic and not much that could be done. Maybe just re-fill earlier if possible I guess. The second thing was that the wall in the garden is very low. Low enough for dogs to jump and clear into the field with sheep. One dog was fine with this, but the other dog needed to be on a long line to avoid getting near the livestock. You may want to consider taking a long line if booking. None of the two points above made a difference to the break, just points to consider. We had a great time and would certainly consider returning. Thanks for a lovely stay.

  • "Beautiful property on a working farm!"

    The wood burner was the high of a stay as it was so cozy! The house was lovely and clean when we arrived and the owners were very accommodating. On arrival, we had been left some lovely fresh bread, butter and a bottle of Prosecco, which was a lovely surprise! We took our two dogs with us, the only issue is the garden is not suitable for dogs (in my opinion). There is a very low wall at the back (about 2 feet high) that any dog could jump and there were sheep in the field behind, so we kept our dogs on leads in the garden at all times, which wasn’t ideal. This issue could be easily and cheaply rectified with a trellis or something similar. Those things aside, I would 100% recommend this hidden gem in the Pennines. I would definitely return with the doggies, once the garden was more suited for put four legged friends.

  • "Lovely cottage with fantastic views."

    The owners were spot on in sorting out the issue with the outdoor lights not working as we have elderly dogs and one fell down the step. Great central location for trips to Hebden Bridge and Howarth our new favourite places. A few snag list things maybe could be done like list a freezer in the info on Sykes as we had to ring to check. Also the bath plug really needs a chain on it as it was a struggle to get the plug out at times. And an iron would be nice and a extra tea towel as having to use the same one all week not very hygienic. Apart from those tweaks we loved it and hope to return at some point.

  • "The cottage was clean, spacious and comfortable ,with outstanding views of the countryside."

    The hot tub was thoroughly enjoyable, however it would have been useful to have a rotary line in the garden to dry towels .If a stay was more than one week a washing machine would have been an asset. The kitchen could have benefited from a few extra essential items such as more than one teatowel ,oven gloves and frying pans and extra food bin bags and bin bags.

  • "The cottage was amazing, loved every minute."

    Perfectly advertised on your page. My only down side was contact with yourselves,I understand Covid made your jobs hard but sometimes the ignorance of your replies were quite stressful, we had to rearrange twice which was understandable but trying to speak to an staff member from Sykes or an email reply was almost impossible. Also to get a message the day before travel to say it was our responsibility to find out if we could still visit the cottage as it was in a local lockdown area. We ended up having to contact the owners direct as the government website wasn’t clear,Calderdale council couldn’t advise and your phones weren’t answered so after ringing many people we found out who owned the cottage and asked them directly if they were happy to host us..still happy to book again with yourselves as hoping it was all covid related that your customer service wasn’t it’s bet

    Beautifully maintained and gorgeous view from the hot tub. Great friendly hosts. Easy to reach next door if needed but the layout meant the Cottage remains completely private. Lots of good pubs locally and places to visit to keep our teenagers and younger daughter happy. Places we visited were Sowerby Bridge, the Bronte village of Haworth, Hardcastle Crags and bit further out we visited the Harry Potter set at Malham. Also Pony Treking at Rossendale. Would highly recommend

    The cottage is beautiful & super clean. Very well presented & the welcoming gifts were very much appreciated. The surrounding scenery is beautiful too, I didn't want to go home. The only thing I didn't get along with was the zip & link beds, the mattresses were just too firm for me personally, I didn't find them comfortable & I struggled sleeping, my husband however loved the beds & slept peacefully. It hasn't put me off returning though, I'd still come back, I love the place. Thank you for a great holiday.

  • "The cottage was lovely and the surroundings were perfect for short walks and bike rides, straight out of the door."

    The kitchen was very well-equipped and the photos do not lie - the place is beautifully decorated, fitted out with good quality furniture, plenty of kitchen storage, everything worked as it should, and there was plenty of space for our family of five to relax. The ensuite shower room was very handy every day! Rachel was easy to contact for a daft thing (missing tea towels and an oven glove) which she remedied within minutes of us asking, and she was around the farm to helpfully answer some questions about the local area. Even though it was literally next door to the farmhouse we were almost unaware of being near it, with the parking space, the "front" door and rear garden being set away from it, so we felt it was private and we had the place to ourselves. The hot tub was a winner with the children and it was lovely to be able to sit in it and look across the valley, seeing nothing but hills, sheep, cows and couple of farmhouses on the other side of the reservoir. There is a slight inescapable niggle that you have to go out the door, across the stone pavers and around the corner to the rear of the property in your swimwear to get in it, but much of a problem. It's a VERY old building, nicely restored and very comfortable - I won't complain that they haven't knocked through the chimney wall to put a patio door in! . There is a storage building for bikes - it is very simple to get out and do a couple of miles circuit around the reservoir, across the dam, or go a bit further for some hill climbs, which made a 6-miler seem much further! Under-floor heating was nice (though it was warm so could not report it's efficiency if it was winter) Very happy with the place, and would recommend it.

The Calderdale village of Ripponden is set in the rural Pennine landscape, three miles from Sowerby Bridge, in the Ryburn Valley. The village is made up of traditional stone-built cottages, and a small high street with shops, cafes, an award-winning restaurant, takeaways, several excellent pubs serving food and real ale, and a local supermarket, with the River Ryburn flowing gently through the centre. Located at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, pretty old weaving villages are found in the surrounding hills. The area is also of archaeological note for its Roman road, Neolithic and Bronze Age remains. Upon Rishworth Moor, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and home to many rare animals, can be found the Cat Stones, a series of ancient round barrow burial sites.

Nearby is Hebden Bridge, a diverse, bohemian town home to restaurants, bars, bistros, markets, an independent cinema, art galleries, and the Rochdale Canal. A scenic car ride over the moors takes you to the Parsonage Museum which commemorates the famous Bronte family. A short drive in the opposite direction takes you to the heart of ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ country. Numerous listed buildings and National Trust properties are close by.
