This stone-built property is a delightful self-contained annexe attached to the owner’s home, situated on the outskirts of the village of Heptonstall.
To the front of the property there is space to park your car and there is a front bench where you can sit and watch the world go by.
Step inside into the sitting room with a dining area which offers a lovely light and airy social space with windows to both sides.
The kitchen is well-equipped and has everything you need to prepare a delicious picnic or evening meal.
Leading off the kitchen is a ground floor bathroom perfect to soak those aching muscles after a day of adventures.
Upstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms with countryside views including those of well-known Stoodley Pike, and both rooms boast en-suite shower rooms.
To the outside of the property there is a small enclosed courtyard where you can enjoy a morning coffee before heading out for the day.
Heptonstall is a wonderfully preserved village home to two local pubs serving delicious food, if you fancy a night off from the cooking, plus nearby Hebden Bridge a short drive away has a larger selection of amenities.
Walkers will enjoy the Pennine Way footpath and bridleway which are close by and there are plenty of footpaths to explore.
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?
An interesting footpath leads to this from directly opposite the cottage.
Hop in the car and discover Haworth, famous for its association with the Bronte sisters and travel in the footsteps of Jane and Heathcliffe across the moors, or if trains interest you then the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway is a must with its year-round themed rides and entertainment.

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 writer Sylvia Plath, a former wife of the Poet Laureate 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.
