Towngate Cottages

These beautiful, stone holiday homes are set in the Calderdale village of Midgley, in West Yorkshire, a short drive from the popular towns of Hebden Bridge and Haworth. The properties offer modern, yet comfortable and homely accommodation within wonderfully refurnished buildings. Hints of their original character remain, with exposed wooden beams and stone fireplaces. Guests can enjoy a good night’s rest in comfortable bedrooms, modern bathrooms and well-equipped kitchens. Enjoy dinner and an evening drink in the local village pub, and spend your days exploring the beautiful countryside surrounding Midgley. There are many wonderful attractions nearby; pull on your walking boots and explore the Pennine Way, spend the day at National Trust Hardcastle Crags, or visit the Brontë Parsonage Museum. You can also enjoy cycling and visiting the many delightful towns and villages of West Yorkshire, including Hebden Bridge, Haworth and Skipton! An excellent destination for families, couples and friends.

The property

This beautifully converted, semi-detached forge is set solely over the ground floor, with wooden beams and partition walls topped with glass, to allow natural light to fill the entire property.

Enjoy the comfort of the pretty sitting room with a glass of wine in the evening, and prepare picnics and tasty meals in the compact kitchen.

After a long day, you can revive aching muscles with a good night’s sleep in the large double bedroom, where plenty of storage allows you to make yourself completely at home.

This delightful, romantic holiday destination is wonderful for couples visiting Calderdale and exploring West Yorkshire.
