  • "We had a wonderful 10 night stay in the lodge!"

    It's very comfortable and clean, and so relaxing. The owner is very nice, she's around if you need her, but doesn't bother you otherwise. There are potholes on the road, but nothing major, and you are in the country so this is to be expected. Steady drivers won't have a problem. The views from the cottage are amazing and there are loads of walks from the door. The fully enclosed garden is great for the dogs too, it was nice to know they could run around safely. We have already booked to stay again this year and will be coming back next year, so I would definitely recommend it!

  • "The road up to the cottage is horrendous."

    Steep and narrow and full of potholes. Not enough storage in the kitchen. Bed advertised as can split and it doesn’t. Parking the car is among horse boxes which are in and out. Liked the private garden but it had quite a lot of mole hills which kept popping up. We actually left a day early.

  • "A great property in a wonderful isolated hilltop location from which you can see for miles."

    A fantastically comfortable bed, a warm lounge with wood burner, and decently equipped kitchen. Very restful. Great place for rest, walks on both hills and by canals, for escape for and refreshment. Near the interesting town of Hebden Bridge. Good rail links. others have observed the road up has its share of potholes, but many of these can be navigated. Bit of an issue with some mould in a couple of places in lounge - we have a similar issue in our home and I've suggested a couple of products we hope can quickly sort it. Would be pleased to return again for another holiday there. Happy to recommend.

  • "The cottage was in a beautiful location overlooking the valley."

    There are some beautiful long and short walks right on the doorstep, so whether you are an experienced walker or just fancying a morning stroll you couldn't be in a better location. The cottage was spacious and cosy too. The road leading up to the cottage wasn't too bad, there are some rough patches with potholes and bumps but as long as you drive cautiously it's fine, the majority of the road up is fairly smooth...if a little 108 can make it up there on a daily occurrence, anyone can. Brilliant holiday had by my little family, thank you again!

    The cottage was very clean and cosy ,with everything we needed. The decent sized fully enclosed garden was perfect for our 2 dogs . There are lots of lovely walks from the doorstep , we particularly enjoy stoodley pike and reservoir. And a short drive to Hebden bridge . Perfect location if you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle . We loved it .

  • "We had an excellent stay at Knowl Lodge with our dog, we found the cottage extremely comfortable, with everything one would need for a short break (kitchen/cleaning items, towels, internet, radio etc."

    ) and Anna the owner is very friendly. The garden of the property is big and secure, so our dog was free to potter around on its own without being able to escape. The property itself is on the top of quite a large hill in an incredibly quiet and peaceful location, surrounded by fantastic views over the moors. As long as you follow the directions in the booking email it's very easy to find. It's a good idea to bring some food with you as it's a long walk to the nearest shop, although there is a pub at the bottom of the hill which does lunches and dinners, which is worth a visit (walkable along public footpaths in around half an hour). The location is also a perfect starting point for numerous hiking trails and circular routes for example, to Stoodley Pike and Withens Clough Reservoir, or Hebden Bridge and Todmorden etc. Many of these footpaths are clearly marked and identifiable. However, Google is no substitute for a good OS map. We have already recommended Knowl Lodge and would be more than happy to book a repeat visit.

    The facilities are good and the bed is very comfy. If you like plenty of walking options and need a place where your dog will have plenty of space to run and be secure whilst in the property, then this is perfect. Myself and my 2 pups loved it so much, we're booked in again for next month!! :)

    Great walks and locals are really friendly. Short distance to Hebden Bridge, supermarkets nice cafes and pubs. Just what we needed after a tough few months to distress have a change of scenery and take time to enjoy life. It was lovely to take the dog he really enjoyed himself. He got a little jealous when we paid attention to the horses.:). Thank you Anne & family we would recommend this to our family and friends.

    Warm, cosy and clean, with spectacular views out of the lounge and kitchen windows.The enclosed garden was ideal for the dogs. The road up to the house had a few potholes in it but with careful driving this was not a problem. There is a excellent circular walk around the reservoir which is a 5 minute drive, level and not too strenuous, ideal for dog walking. A very quiet and peaceful stay,

  • "The cottage is in a lovely setting high up a single track road with lots of pot holes, so you do need to drive carefully and allow 10-15minutes extra if you are going out somewhere."

    However as you were high up the views were fabulous. It was a bit disconcerting drinking brown water from the spring so we did purchase bottles of water even though I am sure it was safe to drink.

  • "The house is cosy, spacious and warm, its very quiet and rural, ideal for hiking and cycling."

    Be aware it is at the top of a hill so cycling takes you immediately downhill, coming back is all uphill and a stiff climb. Everything is a car journey away, at the bottom of the hill. The only problem I had was the wifi was poor. I could send and receive emails but Netflix or youtube didn't work. I downloaded 18 seconds of a film in 30 minutes. Apart from that it was ideal. The last mile of the road to the house was very bumpy, i have a standard Audi eatate and it grounded easily unless i drove at less than 5mph. Obviously not the property's fault but be aware of it.

  • "The property is very nice and warm, and the owners are very nice."

    The bathroom needs redecorating as the paint is flaking. And there are loads of holes around pipes and skirting boards that really need addressing, particularly behind the bed and in the bathroom. It's very disconcerting wondering what might crawl out of them! The place is remote, which means plenty of peace and quiet, but close enough to town, shops and pubs. The enclosed garden is great for the dog, but please pick up after them as I picked up about 7 bags of other dog's poo! All in all we had a lovely week. Try out the food at the Shoulder of Mutton in Mytholmroyd and the Robin Hood at the weekend - the food is excellent at both.

  • "This is a lovely cottage right out in the wilds but only a few miles from shops and facilities."

    Adjoining the owner’s farmhouse it is clean, comfortable and cosy with a lovely secure garden for relaxing in or playing with the dog. Views are spectacular if visibility allows and the only downside is the single track road leading up there - it would be very awkward if something were coming the other way! Just right for a short break for a single or couple.

  • "The ascent to the top of the hills where the lodge is located was beautiful going through country lanes bordered on both sides with dry stone walls and enchanted woods."

    The views from the property are amazing and at night time the glimmering lights of the villages down below and the stars and the moon up in the sky make you want to stay by the old mullion windows and watch out all night. My boys - dogs loved the little cottage and to have their own enclosed garden wasn't just delightful for them it was for me too as my lurcher does tend to go after bunny rabbits. If you want to stay somewhere ultimately relaxing, slow paced with all you need for a comfortable, warm stay this is the place and being in Yorkshire you can only find beauty around you. Last but not least the family are always there if you need anything otherwise they leave you on your own devices to enjoy this place up the hills

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.
