Hebden Bridge 1 mile.
A truly delightful Grade II listed, end-terrace cottage, tucked away by the canal locks between Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd.
This cottage dates back to the 18th century and has been renovated to a very good standard and is an ideal romantic retreat for couples, or a great base for small families, who want to get away from it all and enjoy this historic corner of the Yorkshire Dales.
Full of character and charm, the cottage is a real delight, with a wonderful blend of old and new features.
There is exposed stonework, old beams and the quirky little features only found in a home of this age.
As well as a wonderful interior, the cottage is set in a lovely position, backing onto the canal and the locks.
There are excellent walks to the two nearby towns and from the kitchen an eye-level window allows you an insight into the industrial revolution, as the narrow boats drift idly by.
The main living space features a cosy sitting area, with a feature fireplace and a woodburning stove.
As well as these, there is exposed stonework and original ceiling beams, which all combine to provide a cosy retreat, ideal for curling up on the sofa and reading a good book.
A modern kitchen and a small dining area complete the ground floor accommodation and the original stone staircase leads to the first floor, where there are two bedrooms and a lovely bathroom.
Outside, the enclosed courtyard has feature walls and makes an ideal place to sit, relax and enjoy a bottle of wine.
Nearby, Mytholmroyd is the home of the infamous Cragg Coiners and the birthplace of Ted Hughes, once Poet Laureate.
The town offers a small selection of good pubs, a bistro, a café and also the Walkley Clogs factory, the oldest clog makers in the country.
Explore the many excellent walks leading from the doorstep of this Yorkshire cottage and along the nearby canal towpath, which offers a short walk into Hebden Bridge.
Here, you can spend an evening sampling the town’s many pubs, restaurants and its lively, varied nightlife, or spend lazy afternoons perusing its wide range of lovely eateries and shops and the old cinema, where you can indulge in tea and scones during the interval.
The countryside surrounding the town offers many bridleways and there is also a mountain bike centre in Hebden Bridge!
Visit the village of Heptonstall, with its two historic pubs, or explore the home of the Brontë sisters in nearby Haworth, with the bustling town of Skipton also within easy reach.
This delightful Hebden Bridge cottage is just the place to stay for that well-deserved break.
