  • "An absolute gem!"

    We had a wonderful time and particularly enjoyed the rural setting. The cottage had everything we needed and was immaculate. Looking forward to returning in the future.

  • "Kitchens utensils quite basic and could really do with a bread knife but overall it was exactly what we’d hoped for."

    There were no fire lighters or kindling so we couldn’t use the log burner until we got some the following day. These are small things and it didn’t hinder our enjoyment of the place. Would stay there again and recommend to others.

    Thank you for this positive review. There should certainly be a breadknife ! And also kindling. Thank you for mentioning these issues as it enables us to address them. Property Owner

  • "A pleasant stay in a cosy cottage on the top of the hill."

    I had a very quiet stay here in December and despite the weather, the cottage was very warm and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and the starter pack of essential items was much appreciated. To my surprise, they do grit the road in bad weather (it was below freezing some nights) although as others have noted, it's a steep drive up from Hebden Bridge and a tight parking space. I would definitely stay here again in the summer/spring. Thanks for a lovely stay!

  • "Brilliant cottage, one of the best we have stayed in."

    Cosy, clean and comfortable with absolutely everything you need. Views outstanding with lots of walks from the door. Like others we did not use the car all week. We could have easily stayed for longer.

  • "Lovely property where you can really escape from it all and walk straight out onto the Pennine way."

    Enjoyed the sunsets on the hilltop and loads of lovely places to visit and eat out nearby. Comfy beds and well equipped. Ice cube tray would be helpful addition. Couldn’t charge hybrid car at the property as cable was too short to reach designated parking space but free charge points in Hebden bridge and most of the towns we travelled to.

    Thank you for your review and the great suggestions for places to visit in the Elephant Book. Ice cube tray now provided ! Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage and very well equipped with everything you could need."

    Organisation and communication was excellent and the information provided in the property was also clear and comprehensive. The cottage is in a beautiful spot with great views of Stoodley Pike and the surrounding countryside. There are lots of walking options right from the door or close by. We were visiting family locally and know the area well and we would definitely recommend Horsehold as a good choice for anyone looking to visit the area and stay in a lovely cosy place. It's worth noting the mentions in the description of steep stairs and a steepish road up to the Horsehold from Hebden in case these might be issues for you. Parking at the property is fine and there's an enclosed garden at the back if you have your dog along.

    House was welcoming and efficient and views were stunning.

    Also possible bin for recycling as we ended up bringing ours all the way home. No facilities in the village.

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire, is this stone-built, semi-detached cottage.

Internally, the property has been renovated to provide a warm and welcoming base for friends, families or couples seeking a rural escape.

Set in the rolling countryside, if it's peace and tranquility you're looking for, you've come to the right place.

Boasting some of the most beautiful country views imaginable, this cottage gives you the sense of a home-away-from-home.

Stepping inside, you will be greeted by a spacious open-plan lounge area, with a large sofa and two armchairs to choose from, curl up with your loved ones and delight in the provided woodburning stove to keep you warm during those chillier winter months.

Gather at the dining table to enjoy a deliciously prepared home-cooked meal and discuss the day's events.

Walk through to the kitchen where you will discover a set of high-quality fitted units and sleek worktops providing a range of contemporary appliances so you can easily rustle up some delicious meals.

There is a small dining table there so you and your partner to enjoy a hearty breakfast whilst planning the day's events.

Resting on the first floor are two well-presented bedrooms, a king-size and twin, both offering plenty of modern furnishings for storage purposes and matching bedside tables with lamps, ideal for some late night reading.

Being in the rural countryside, you will have easy access to many country paths for some walking and cycling.

The market town of Hebden Bridge provides a selection of pubs and restaurants for that fine dining experience, as well as a choice of independent shops and supermarkets for picking up any last-minute essentials.

Just north of Hebden Bridge is the wooded valley of Hardcastle Crags, spanning across 15 miles with plenty of footpaths and a 19th century mill.

Surrounded by many lakes, canals and reservoirs, there is plenty of opportunities for some sailing, particularly at the Warley Moor Reservoir, which is also home to a sailing club.

If you're bringing children under the age of eleven, then make sure to visit Eureka!

The National Children's Museum which is interactive for children, with a nursery for the younger ones.

3 Horsehold is an excellent base for a rural break with your loved ones.
