  • "Lovely cottage and location with wonderful views."

    Every facility that you may need was provided, particularly in the kitchen! The welcome basket was much appreciated as well. The cottage was very clean++. High quality bed linen and comfortable bed. Excellent bathroom, great free standing shower and fluffy white towels. What more could anyone need? Good base for visiting local attractions and amenities.

    The cottage is very cosy, well furnished and equipped and in a wonderful position. There are so many options for days out in the local area, wonderful walks with amazing views and a wealth of good pubs, cafes and restaurants. You are really spoilt for choice. The host is very welcoming and helpful and close at hand if needed.

  • "We had a fantastic week at this cottage."

    The cottage had all the facilities we required and the owner was very considerate with a welcome pack containing essentials should you have arrived without having been able to get milk, bread, tea, coffee etc. Some cottages are missing things you need for a week but don't really want to have to bring with you but the owner had provided everything we required. This showed how carefully they have considered what guests require for a pleasant visit. The cottage is in a wonderful location and is very convenient for visiting Halifax, Bradford, Leeds, Haworth and Hebden Bridge and we wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

  • "We really enjoyed the location and elevated position of Little Hollin Hey just above Mytholmroyd."

    The cottage is lovely; very cosy and comfortable, and a great base for walking and exploring the surrounding hills & valleys, the River Calder, and the Rochdale canal. Furthermore, you're never far way from great local restaurants such as the Bar & Tapas in Mytholmroyd, and La Perla and the Olive Branch in Hebden Bridge. We wanted a get-away-from-it-all break, and this trip was just the ticket, and the weather was kind which was a bonus. We hope to be back next year, and quite honestly I'd go back tomorrow if I could !

  • "The little cottage is delightful and full of character, and beautifully appointed."

    We particularly loved the spacious bathroom with its picture window, and its spectacular views.; and the cosy lounge. It is a very rural location, which was just what we wanted, and we spent most of the week walking from the door.

    The character of the building is maintained yet it is modern, spacious, and very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of good quality crockery, cutlery, pans etc. in fact everything you could need and more. We really appreciated the lovely welcome basket plus milk, eggs and bread. The views from the property are stunning and well worth the drive up the steep lane. The owner and neighbours were welcoming and friendly.

  • "This is the second time we have stayed in this cottage and it was just as lovely as we remembered."

    The cottage is cosy, comfortable, clean and well equipped. The welcome hamper is an added bonus. Mary and her family are very friendly. The location of the cottage is ideal with incredible views and a great garden area with seating, fire pit and BBQ. There is so much to explore in the local area, particularly if you enjoy walking. We used the car very little during our stay. We definitely hope to return to this cottage again in the future.

  • "Mary and Grace were so friendly and welcoming."

    The cottage was extremely well equipped, and provided more than we have ever experienced before. The hamper was a lovely touch. The setting was beautiful, but we didn't realise how steep and narrow the lane would be. We love walking, but for us it was too punishing to walk directly from the cottage. We would drive down into the village (free parking) and walk the canal. Perfectly situated for visiting Hebden Bridge, Sowerby Bridge, Howarth, Holmfirth, Huddersfield, Saltaire etc

  • "Little Hollin Hey is a gorgeous cottage situated up in the hills with stunning views of the countryside."

    It has everything you could possibly want and need. We had read so many excellent reviews about it that we were definitely excited to stay here, and we certainly weren't disappointed. Mary goes above and beyond to make the cottage welcoming. From the welcome basket which includes milk, bread, and eggs, to the fresh flowers in every room, to the extra toilets rolls and dishwasher tablets (having stayed in many a cottage we know how sparingly these are normally given); there is nothing we didn't have. It's these little things that go a long way to making a stay that bit easier and enjoyable. After suffering a minor issue on our first day, Mary was on hand within minutes and the problem was sorted within half an hour. We couldn't ask for more than that! We definitely enjoyed our stay and would recommend Little Hollin Hey to anyone.

  • "The whole family made us feel very welcome and to make ourselves 'at home'."

    We had unrestricted access to the shared outside eating area which had amazing views. The house is extremely professionally fitted out and well furnished, including a well catered for kitchen where we could cook any type of food. The welcome gifts of fresh food and drinks as well as fresh flowers in every room were really appreciated. They even washed and returned some mistakenly left clothing. Thanks Mary and everyone.

  • "I stayed for three weeks at Little Hollin Hey, waiting to secure permanent accommodation after removing to the area during these Covid days."

    I didn't want to leave. The cottage is warm, comfortable and far more spacious than I imagined with great views and a sunny garden for sitting out at sunset in warmer months. It is well-equipped and has good drying facilities, inside and out. There are maps to local walks from the cottage —it's a lovely area to explore. I found local shopping met all my needs, with an artisan baker and a Saturday morning fresh vegetable stall in the village. Mary and her family were helpful in so many ways and I thank them for looking after me so well.

  • "Set in the hills above Mythomroyd the views from the garden seating are fantastic, There are paths running from the cottage to access the surrounding countryside and a short drive down to the town gives you access to traffic free cycling along the Rochdale canal."

    Having been introduced to Calderdale 9 years ago we have been returning yearly since due to great countryside, quirky towns and the warmth of the people. Each year we have stayed in a different place, but Little Hollin Heys standards of accomodation are the best we have encountered

  • "We were the first guests to arrive at Little Hollin Hey after 'lockdown' ended and were really eager to get away for some peace and tranquility."

    What a lovely spot to have chosen high up on the hillside, with multiple walks straight from the doorstep. We arrived to a very well stocked welcome basket and fresh milk in the fridge, which was a lovely touch. The kitchen had the full range of equipment you'd ever need for a self-catering home from home stay. We were never short of anything and the owner, Mary, who lives opposite was keen to check we had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The huge walk-in power shower was possibly the best we've ever had at any cottage we've stayed at and the bath robes provided were an added treat. The cottage was lovely and spacious, well furnished and a joy to stay in. I'm sure we'll be back.

The property

Surrounded by the beautiful hills and moors of the Upper Calder Valley, Little Hollin Hey is an attractive stone-built cottage located on a working farm 2 miles from the quirky town of Hebden Bridge and just 5 minutes’ drive from the village amenities of Mytholmroyd.

The terraced cottage oozes character through its exposed stone and original beams, and provides the perfect escape for exploring all that this part of Yorkshire has to offer.

Haworth, home to the Bronte family museum and Worth Valley steam railway, is a 30 minute drive away.

And both Skipton, the Gateway to the Dales with its medieval castle and market days, and Bolton Abbey are also within easy striking distance by car.

And if Yorkshire doesn’t have enough to offer, in the opposite direction over Blackstone Edge, into Lancashire at the foot of the Pennines you’ll find Hollingsworth Lake with a nature reserve and activity centre.

Closer to home, you can visit the resting place of poet Sylvia Plath at St Thomas’ Church in Heptonstall or hike across Midgley Moor - both visible from the cottage across the wooded valley.

The views from Little Hollin Hey are indeed stunning.

Not surprising, given its lovely hillside location.

The surrounding countryside is best experienced from the private patio or al fresco eating area where there’s a BBQ and a shared lawn.

And you’re not reliant on good weather to enjoy the views as a fire pit makes outdoor entertainment possible all year round.

Headings inside the cottage, you’ll find a charming holiday home designed to cater for all your needs.

Relax on the plush grey sofa or put your feet up and sink into the comfy recliner chair and cosy up around the wood burning stove and Smart TV.

The fully-fitted modern dining kitchen has all the essential appliances you’d expect including washing machine, dishwasher, microwave and a solid oak dining table.

Climb the staircase to the first floor where there’s a stylish shower room and a loo with a view.

The spacious walk-in shower is perfect for rejuvenating after a hike over the Pennines or cycling up England’s longest continual uphill gradient, which is close to the cottage at Cragg Vale and forms part of the Tour De Yorkshire route.

Cross the bright and airy landing and you’ll find a quiet reading area, perfect for unwinding or planning your next day’s adventures.

There’s also a beautifully decorated bedroom on the first floor with a 4'6 double bed and classic oak furniture.

A further bedroom can be found on the second floor with a roomy king-size bed that can be arranged into two singles to create a flexible twin bedroom on request.

While the characterful accommodation at Little Hollin Hey provides a real home from home, it’s the cottage’s setting that is its greatest attraction.

The stunning scenery, the peace and quiet of a truly rural location, but near to the shops of Mytholmroyd for all the essentials and good pubs like the Shoulder of Mutton if you fancy a quick pint or the Hinchliffe Arms if you want to dine out.

Immediately you step out of the cottage you are in great walking and cycling country.

Close by is the Cragg Vale Coiners Walk, named after an infamous local 18th century criminal gang.

Other nearby beauty spots include the National Trust’s Hardcastle Crags, the curious rock formations of The Bridestones and Stoodley Pike monument which dominates the moors above the Calder Valley.

For a gentler stroll, follow the Rochdale Canal towpath from Mytholmroyd to Hebden Bridge to discover a little piece of bohemia, with its independent cafes, restaurants and shops, and traditional cinema.

Alternatively, take the train from Mytholmroyd to the historic minster town of Halifax, 9 miles away.

The setting for popular British TV shows like Happy Valley and Gentleman Jack, Halifax’s must-see attraction is The Piece Hall – a unique survivor of the Yorkshire woollen industry and one of Britain’s most outstanding Georgian buildings.

As well as discovering its history and admiring the beautiful architecture, there are restaurants, a gin bar, a theatre and shops for you to explore.

Eureka!

The National Children’s Museum with it’s interactive exhibits is another great place for families to play and spend the day.

Come to Little Hollin Hey – it’s the perfect rural base to enjoy a very varied holiday in a beautiful part of Yorkshire.
