  • "Not enough crockery etc."

    to feed the dishwasher and still have enough to use. Could not log on to streamed tv so more instructions for tv would help. Generally a very nice cottage perfectly situated for local amenities in a charming and interesting village. Excellent cafe/take away opposite (in fact so good didn’t cook a meal the entire holiday). Lovely walks in vicinity so no need to use car unless travelling further out, 20 mins walk into Hebden Bridge down a fairly steep path but convenient bus back to avoid slog back up hill. Owners really helpful in sorting out queries. All in all a good experience.

  • "The cottage was immaculate."

    One of the cleanest cottages I have stayed in. Stylish, contemporary furniture and decor with a great bathroom and kitchen. It also had fast wifi. Heptonstall itself is a wonderful village to stay in. It has 2 good pubs, a great cafe and a small community shop. It is also worth mentioning the great bus service that runs regularly and until late at night. Therefore, easy to get down to Hebden and back. I was able to ditch the car for the whole week! Hebden Bridge has many great cafes and pubs and the area is walkers paradise. You can walk along the canal or go up into the hills. Also, make sure you walk to Gibson Mill and Hardcastle crags - a really delightful walk. If you are a single person or couple, I would really recommend Weaver's cottage.

  • "Weaver’s Cottage is a fabulous property in the delightful setting of Heptonstall."

    The cottage has been tastefully renovated to a high standard and was spotlessly clean on arrival. Headroom is limited in places but is a price worth paying to be able to embrace the character of the village and all it has to offer, including excellent walking terrain from the doorstep. Pre-arrival contact from owner Heather was informative and helpful. We hope to be able to return one day.

    We booked again because it is such a lovely place to stay. The property is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owners had installed a fibre optic Christmas tree for the period, which was a lovely touch. The village is absolutely gorgeous and the villagers very friendly. Although Hebden Bridge is fabulous, after visits we loved going back to the cosy cottage, and the quietness and beauty of Heptonstall. I hope we can return.

  • "Weavers Cottage came up when we were searching for the Yorkshire dales, and it is actually quite a way away, particularly as the direct road was closed for repairs whilst we were there."

    But there are also some very pleasant walks in the immediate area. It's a steep climb to walk, and not very well signposted, from Hebden Bridge where most of the restaurants are, to Heptonstall. So we tended to take the car. The cottage itself is small but excellently appointed. No serious outdoor space -- a tiny, very enclosed back yard. All reasonable Covid precautions were taken and we (a couple) had a very happy week based there.

  • "This one was special."

    We loved everything about this cottage, located in the beautiful village of Heptonstall. It was sparkling clean and very bright. The living room furniture was curl-up comfortable. Linens and towels were fresh. The efficient kitchen looks like it had just been finished the morning we moved in. Wood and fire-starter were available and the fireplace was welcome on the lone cold and rainy day. Yes, even the weather co-operated. Milk and red-velvet cake greeted us on our arrival and we enjoyed them in the private garden. We discovered that the White Swan, as well as having friendly staff, makes a wonderful cheese and onion pie. We found lots to do in the surrounding area including visits to Haworth and Hebden Bridge and hikes to Gibson Mill and beyond. In hindsight, we wish we had booked for 2 weeks rather than the single week. We highly recommend and will certainly be back.

    The cottage is perfect for 2 people. Even though it was November we never used the log burner as the central heating is so efficient and we were rarely in for an evening.

Such a joy to have a full size hob and an oven as well as provision not only of washing up liquid but dish washer tablets and washing powder for the machine. All the locals we met were friendly and helpful giving us advice on local walks. There's no shortage of waymarked paths to walk from the village. A real home from home. We hope to return next year.

The bed in the main bedroom is comfortable, the over-bath shower is good and the separate utility room is a bonus. Our teen liked his top floor bedroom. Heptonstall is a historic gem and you can walk straight out into glorious countryside. It's peaceful, but has buzzy Hebden Bridge just down the (steep) road with a regular bus service. The village has two excellent pubs and the New Delight Inn at Colden is a lovely walk. We thoroughly recommend it.

  • "The cottage is lovely and in a village that has history on the doorstep."

    It sits above the town of Hebden Bridge so the walks up and down are a challenge but there is a regular bus service. Hebden Bridge is a busy market town that has many independent shops and eateries. There are shops that if you enjoy crafts are lovely to browse in and appreciate the talents people have. Walking routes are plentiful; can be along the canal paths or over the moors and along the valleys. Many are accessible from the cottage, so the car can enjoy a rest! The Pennine Way is close by too. Parking is restricted in the village, so no direct space outside the cottage but a car park is nearby. Weavers Cottage is warm, cosy and ideal for those wishing to explore the sights of West Yorkshire. The owners were very obliging and the welcome touch was appreciated too.

The property

This lovely, stone-built, Grade II listed cottage is situated in the heart of the pretty hilltop village of Heptonstall, West Yorkshire.

Located on the cobbled main street, with pubs, village store and tea rooms on the doorstep, this delightful cottage is an ideal base to unwind or to explore the wonderful West Yorkshire countryside.

The cottage has been sympathetically renovated and tastefully furnished to a high standard and is beautifully appointed throughout.

Entering the cottage from the cobbled street, you pass into the cosy sitting room with its stone fireplace, woodburner and comfy sofa, ideal for a relaxing evening with a drink, after a day's sightseeing.

The impressive kitchen also has a table for meals, or on sunny days dine alfresco in the walled patio area outside the cottage.

On the first floor there is a sumptuous bedroom with views over the cobbled streets and rooftops towards Hebden Bridge, plus a spacious, luxurious bathroom.

Off the landing is a spiral staircase leading up to a cosy single bedroom in the eaves of the cottage.

If you are feeling energetic, why not explore nearby Hardcastle Crags, a beautiful wooded valley with more than 400-acres of unspoilt woodland with the 19th century Gibson Mill at its heart?

There are tumbling streams and glorious waterfalls, all criss-crossed by more than 15 miles of footpaths.

The Pennine Way footpath and bridleway also pass within a mile of the cottage.

A charming cottage for a relaxing break at any time of the year.

About the location


Hebden Bridge 1.5 mile; Haworth 8 miles.

The village of Heptonstall is set high on a prominent hillside above its close neighbour, Hebden Bridge. Heptonstall is one of West Yorkshire's best kept secrets; a wonderfully preserved village with a main street that has changed very little in the last 200 years. Formerly an important centre for hand-loom weaving, the village still retains its original trading hall, while the old Grammar School, by the churchyard, is now a museum testifying to the village's illustrious past. The churchyard is also the burial home for the American poet, novelist & short-story writer Sylvia Plath, perhaps best known for her collections of published poems & novel "The Bell Jar". Heptonstall was a place she stayed in before & during her marriage to the poet Ted Hughes. In the centre are the two remaining pubs, the Cross Inn, believed to date from the early 17th century, and the White Lion, rumoured to be haunted by a Roundhead on a horse, a throwback to when the village was besieged during the Civil War. Nearby is the attractive town of Hebden Bridge, while the area is a must for steam railway enthusiasts who will enjoy the thriving Worth Valley Railway. Skipton, the Gateway to the Dales, is an easy and scenic car ride away.
