  • "We very much enjoyed our stay in Cobble Cottage."

    It is in a lovely location, up a little ‘snicket’ in the ancient hilltop village of Heptonstall. The cottage was extremely clean, well-equipped and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is small but fine for a holiday cottage. Good shower, good beds, loads of plug sockets! You can do beautiful walks in all directions - down the hill to Hebden, into Hardcastle Crags or the Colden Valley, across Heptonstall Moor. Little community shop/Post Office in the village sells basics and there are two pubs and a nice café. We would go back.

  • "Had a lovely stay at Cobble Cottage."

    It was very peaceful. Hardly heard a thing so we could get our usual holiday lie ins. The cottage was clean and we had everything we needed. Very spacious and comfortable living area. We used the log burner one evening which was easy to use and made it lovely and cosy. The only quibble I had is that the instant hot water wouldn't work on the 2nd and 3rd day for my shower. However, once I worked out to restart the boiler it was fine. The kitchen is small so not ideal if you like to cook a lot but this wasn't an issue for us as there are so many places to eat out locally there is no need to cook. The local cafe also does great takeout homemade ready meals that can be popped in the microwave. Heptonstall is a gem of a village. Great facilities for such a small village - 2 pubs, a shop and great cafe. There is only a fantastic bus service running down to Hebden Bridge so use it if you can. Hebden is a great little town - so much to see and do with loads of good places to eat and drink. Loads of walks in the area - we were spoilt for choice and need to come back to do more. Would highly recommend staying here and I'm sure we will be back.

    People were friendly with the exception of the very rude lady?, in number 3 the yellow front door ,who greeted us with , hope your not going to leave your car in the parking spot opposite the cottage , stating that the owner of cobble cottage should not be advising you are ok to park there,she would have a staring role in , Roystan Vasey (its a local place for local people)

    Dear David, I'm glad you enjoyed the cottage and Heptonstall despite the surprisingly negative comment from someone locally.I do apologise. Normally our guests comment on how friendly our neighbours are. Once again, we are very sorry, and I'm just thankful for your good humour.Best wishes, Liz Property Owner

  • "A very well equipped cottage, in a lovely quiet area."

    The owners have thought of everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible; a proper home from home. We did plenty of walks; Hardcastle Craggs, along the towpath, Stoodley Pike and the Heptonstall trail which was very informative with lovely views. We also caught the train to Halifax and visited the Piece Hall and Minster. For any guests driving an electric car there is a 7kw Electric Blue charging point on Acres Lane in Heptonstall which you could hook up to for maximum of 4 hours which was handy to top up at. However, there was so much to do and the transport links are so good we parked the car up when we arrived and never went back to it until we left! We would definitely recommend this cottage for a couple or a young family, and would definitely book again if we were in the area.

    We're so glad you enjoyed your holiday. Please do come back and visit again. Best wishes Liz and David Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay and were generally very pleased with the cottage."

    Only a few things weren't so good: 1. There weren't many logs left for the woodburner in the cellar. Only really enough for one night. 2. The dishwasher cutlery tray needs to be replaced. It has lots of holes in the bottom which, if items slip though, would jam the dishwasher spray arm mechanism! Thought you ought to know. 3. The cleaners don't seem to be keeping an eye on the rubbish / recycling. There were a lot of recycling items in the plastic boxes in the cellar when we arrived and the general waste dustbin was really stinky with lots of slimy loose stuff at the bottom of the bin. I sorted it all out and put everything out for the dustmen in bags. Not nice! Maybe the cleaners could check all this when they come in and possibly take stuff away if necessary? I think some guests must just be putting stuff in the cellar and not bothering to put it out in the bins later on. 4. There was a light on in the attic room all week, which we were unable to turn off. Could only turn on/off the attic stairs light. I guess the cleaners must have left it on by mistake. Bit of a waste of electricity. We loved the cottage and the village though and the beds were really comfortable! Thank you very much!

    Dear Leah, Thank you for taking the trouble to tell us about things that could have been better. I wasn't aware of these issues and really should be. We are usually so meticulous, so I will find out what has gone wrong. Despite everything, thank for this perfect scoring. I'm very glad you had a good holiday.

  • "Fabulous little cottage in a really lovely village."

    The cottage was clean and welcoming on arrival. A welcome pack of two local beers and jam was a nice touch and much appreciated. The cottage was warm and cosy. Plenty of wood was left for the wood burner which was an absolute joy. The shower was clean with good water pressure. Plenty of storage in the bedrooms. The walk down to Hebden was enjoyable, a test for this Cambridge family, much more used to a flatter environment! We caught the regular bus back to the cottage. We ate at the The Old Gate bar and restaurant which was friendly and cosy down in Hebden. Lovely local quirky independent shops to browse round. A great week spent Thank you.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback Julia. We try to make our cottage a home from home.. glad you found it so cosy. X Property Owner

  • "I thought that the instructions to find the property could be improved."

    Could you not say something to the effect that it is up an alley? Maybe it was us but we were struggling until a neighbour helped! It would also be helpful to say something more about where the car park is. I found it in the end but it’s (deliberately) badly signposted! Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay thank you

    I'm sorry you struggled to find the cottage. You should have received all the instructions on the Sykes portal for guests, including where the carpark is. You clearly didn't see that information.. I'll double check this with Sykes. Thank you for your comments and I'm sorry you found directions difficult Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely holiday."

    Cobble Cottage was the perfect home from home. It was well stocked and very cosy. We did not have a car and this was a great base for a four night holiday to explore Hebden Bridge and do some local walks. I would say the hill up from Hebden Bridge really is steep, we did it once and vowed not to do it again, but the 596 bus was very convenient and so this was not an issue. The Cross Inn next door was lovely for food. Overall, couldn't fault the cottage or the holiday and wish I was still there!

  • "Cobble Cottage is a very comfortable, well furnished, 2 up, 1 down, back to back cottage in the attractive, cobbled, very old village of Heptonstall, up the hill from Hebden Bridge."

    The narrow access to the cottage and car park is challenging but it is very quiet. The cottage is well equipped with a spacious lounge/diner, galley kitchen and utility cellar. The double bedroom and linked bunk bedroom means that the cottage is ideal for a couple or small family. We loved wandering around the village, and down the footpaths into Hebden Bridge (but caught the reliable regular bus back each time). The neighbours and local residents were very friendly and helpful. It was a good location for starting our walks to Stoodley Pike and the magnificent views, walking to Hardcastle Craggs and beyond, and exploring cafes and pubs along the canal and on the Pennine Way. It was also a good base for visiting West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester. We look forward to returning.

  • "We had a really fabulous holiday from start to finish at Cobble Cottage in Heptonstall."

    The cottage was clean and cared for and had everything we needed. The location was peaceful and we slept really well. The neighbours were friendly and we felt welcome in the area. Heptonstall is very beautiful with cobbled streets, amazing views, walks to enjoy and history to explore. There is a small post office which sells papers, food and general items which you might need. There are some great pubs with relaxing beer gardens. We tended to walk down into Hebden Bridge and get the bus back (once an hour at the moment). The weather was generally good so we did plenty of walking. We visited Hebden Bridge several times and also Mythemroyd (delicious pub lunch at The Shoulder of Mutton pub) and Gibson Mill and Hardcastle Craggs. We walked to all these places from the cottage but buses were available. We liked the Town Hall cafe in Hebden Bridge and The Old Gate pub. We highly recommend the cottage. It was a perfect holiday location, especially ideal if you like peace and quiet, walking and relaxation.

    But what a great surprise this was cottage was. Lovely little community set back in a very friendly little village. Met loads of the neighbours who were always up for a chat and giving us recommendations of where to go and what to do. We ended up taking the long way up from Hebden Bridge because we followed the sat nav - but, I really didn't mind the detour, but to avoid it just look at for the slip road (you'll know what I mean when you get there). The village has little cobbled streets and private roads that are little more than rutted driveways, which just added to it's charm. We would definitely book this cottage again.

    Hepstonstall was full of history, and we felt like we had stepped back in time. With 2 traditional local pubs, a play area for the children, a museum, 2 churches and numerous walking and running routes - there was plenty to do for everyone.

    We had a lovely time. The cottage was really nice and perfect for our family of four. The children had bunk beds which they loved. We spent a day at Hardcastle Crags which had an easier walk which our toddler and 5 year old managed no problem. We had lots of fun. On New Years Eve we went to the Victoria Theatre in Halifax to watch Snow White. We enjoyed this. We also visited the cake shop which is at the end of the road. The cakes were delicious!! The cottage had everything we needed for our stay and the Christmas Tree and decorations were a lovely touch. We also enjoyed the lovely local jam and other things that were left for our arrival. Liz phoned us prior to our stay to give us some information which was great. She seemed lovely. Thank you Liz!!

    Here are our thoughts: Heptonstall is a village from another age with cobbled streets, narrow openings and immense charm. Bear this in mind that the village was not designed for cars and have a little patience parking (free car park a few minutes walk). The cottage has everything you need and is presented beautifully. The bedroom especially felt like still at home not in a rental. Bed was super comfy with lovely duvet. Bathroom excellent with good shower. Lounge has a wood burner (not needed on this lovely bank holiday weekend), great sofas, broadband, all you need. We had a great stay and honestly the only feedback for the owners is maybe could have done with a full length mirror! Good job and good luck with the cottage, I am sure we will be back.
