  • "We booked 5 nights as a last minute Easter break."

    We had a great time. The house was spotlessly clean. It has a well equipped kitchen, comfortable living room and a decent bathroom. The 2 bedrooms were very comfy and the attic bedroom would comfortably accommodate 2 additional guests so easily accommodates 6. The owners live next door. Very nice people and we had a couple of chats . They had put fresh flowers out and a couple of local vocation beers in the fridge. Lovely touch. Off road parkings a bit tight but easily doable. The house has a great atmosphere and we were happy to come back and relax in the evening after a busy day out exploring the local area. There’s lots to do in Hebden. Plenty of walks and places to visit including Cragside and Howarth . If you enjoy pubs visit The Blue Pig at Midgehole , a proper pub, you can sign in for the day. The Tim Taylor’s is fantastic @ £2.70 a pint. Then you can walk round Cragside . Loads of other great pubs and places to eat including Vocation brewery 2 mins walk away. Hebdens a busy little place and traffic can be a bit noisy at times but nothing owners can do about that. There’s a nice seating area outside to relax and have a drink or whatever. No outdoor bit for the dog to do his business so you have to walk out with your Poo bags. Despite it being dog friendly the place does not have the impression that dogs have been in as it is so clean. It’s very clear the owners take a lot of pride in preparing the property for guests . It’s very impressive and I’d recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to explore this intriguing town and area.

    Location for Hebden is just great and it even has off street parking. Would definitely recommend!

  • "Great position with short stroll to town."

    Good shower, bed etc. Kitchen facilities fine with coffee machine. Large fridge/ freezer. We arrived on a very cold day and unfortunately , because no doors on the open stairs, the heat just escaped into the attic. We asked the owner for a fan heater which really helped. No problem in the summer but the heating needs to be turned up on cold days.

  • "The Stamp office is a lovely stone built house in a wonderful location."

    It is tastefully decorated and the kitchen is very well equipped. Unfortunately when we arrived (in February) the heating had been left on frost guard and the house was freezing. The owner helpfully identified this over the phone, but it took over 24 hours for the house to reach even a bearable18 degrees. The downstairs floors look lovely, but we recommend packing slippers for warmth! It is great that it has a bath (rather than just a shower), but the room has been so tightly squeezed into the space that it is really uncomfortable to use. Fortunately there is a more spacious downstairs toilet. The "cosy snug" has a wonderful view across the valley from the attic window, but is far from cosy (or snug)! As said, the location is fantastic - walkable to the train station, into town, along the canal and to other Pennine locations. The trains give you access to so many places. The town is a great little place for a stay and accommodation is both difficult to find and expensive, so the Stamp Office is still a good option, despite it's downsides! I am sure it would be a wonderfully cool cottage in the summer months,

  • "This is the third time I have stayed here."

    I just love the cottage. The location is just perfect for our needs. I love the fact you can just walk easily in Hebden Bridge town if you like, you are so need the train station, there is a parking spot for you to use- parking is hard to find in Hebden so I personally really appreciate the parking spot. I just love it here. It is clean ,also a bargain as well for such a lovely break. There is a bath, I personally prefer a bath rather than a shower.The area is just so gorgeous around Hebden, you are out alot anyway looking around the many places to visit. Again I just think this cottage is great! Talked to my partner to say perhaps we should try another cottage in Hebden next year for a change & we both said no, as this one is just great? We don't normally go to the same place more than once as the world is big, so it is weird we have returned for the third time, but we have, I don't think you can beat the location myself, for us anyway... or find a cottage like this in Hebden for the price & excellent location. We do love Hebden as well, it is a quirky place & a bit unusual. We love that side as well. So the combination is perfect for us. Lots to explore in the area . People are so friendly in Yorkshire as well. Looking forward to returning next year.

  • "Stunning place and fab cottage."

    My only negatives are lack of a hoover for cleaning up after dog and when leaving on the last day. The heating took a while to work out but was fine once we did. The main living room needed another lamp on an evening so we had to bring a bed side one down from main bedroom. However this was it. perfect location for everything we wanted to do. I will most defiantly look into booking again and coming back. wonderful time had.

  • "Excellent property with tasteful decor and close to amenities."

    However on a very busy junction on a hill which made it very noisy inside. Also, the property was open throughout so the tv and any conversations could be heard throughout. Lack of basic daily kitchen/crockery/tea towels/bin liners and cleaning products which the owner was reluctant to supply. No Covid provisions or procedure other than the QR code.

  • "The Stamp Office is in a perfect location for exploring Hebden Bridge and the surrounding areas."

    During our stay we hardly used our car and walked to many places with our dog. The local shops and restaurants are extremely dog friendly. On arrival at our cottage we met the hosts who live next door and was welcomed with fresh milk, biscuits and a treat for the dog. The cottage was well equipped, clean and spacious. We loved the area and the cottage and would definitely visit again.

    Very comfortable and clean and a wonderful old building. The location is perfect. It is 5 mins walk to the station and the center of Hebden Bridge. The park and canal are 5 mins away too. We would definitely return to stay here and could have happily stayed longer.

  • "The Stamp Office is packed with historical features yet has the comfort of a modern home."

    It is ideally situated to the railway station and the quirky town of Hebden Bridge. We used the accommodation as a work base for three nights. It was cold and damp weather during our stay. At times, we weren’t sure whether the heating corresponded to the daily settings or the room thermostat so turned opened up the radiators. The owners were very good and checked we were warm throughout our stay. Our small niggles were: the lounge would benefit from a clock, the area around the toilet in the bathroom upstairs is a bit cramped, we ran out of hand wash so had to replenish, and there was no property nor COVID 19 information on arrival. Hebden is an interesting town with nice shops, and with a river and a canal, lots of walks to be done with fascinating surroundings especially, the barge community. Todmorden good for a visit on a Thursday by bus to see the market. A lovely part of the country.

  • "I loved staying in this cottage in Hebden Bridge."

    We were welcomed with a home baked cake, milk in the fridge, tea & coffee- which was really appreciated & not expected. The cottage was perfect for our stay. it was clean, warm, cosy , had wi-fi, Netflix , kitchen perfect for our needs- everything was better than I imagined. It was a short walk from the railway station & you can get to Manchester & Leeds if you want a day out shopping or go anywhere else. The cottage is a short walk from the town Hebden Bridge, which was a very quaint place to visit full of individual & quirky shops. A short walk to pick up provisions from the Co-Op shop if you need anything, lovely bakers in the town, loads of cafes, gift shops, artisan shops, lots of lovely pubs etc. A short drive away to Haworth , the Bronte parsonage was a pleasant day out to visit. You can go for walks if you want to all around the area. It is the first time I have been to Hebden Bridge & I just loved it - it was a fab break, the buildings/architecture are just amazing , all the quirky cottages everywhere- the scenery was breath taking. Just loved it there, not glad to be home & already thinking about booking this cottage for next year. There is a parking space outside the house. We used the car & the train but we saw loads of bus routes about as well. Very centrally located which we personally liked. We were considering staying somewhere a bit more remote but glad now we didn't as Hebden Bridge is just so beautiful to see it from your window each day is just glorious. Again absolutely fab, thanks very much.
