  • "Mr Strobel was pain in the but."

    He wanted a chat on entry and a list of do's and dont's Signs in the downstairs property about animal pea and the gate. It was obsticle course to get me dog to the road. I had to go through downstairs garden. No room for my dog stretch about apart from the balcony. In future I will be selecting cottage that do not require a chat on entry. I paid a lot of money for stays. Oh the hot water wouldnt work in the bathroom. I got a reply 'DID YOU TRY BOTH TOGETHER@ What sort of chat is that. I expect to be treated better than that.

    Great views over a beautiful area and also a welcoming basket of sweet treats from the very friendly owners, which was much appreciated. Handy location for Hebden Bridge, with a good bus service along the main road below Luddenden if you want to leave the car at the cottage. Highly recommended all round.

    Great for missing the long standing traffic jam into Hebden Bridge. The hosts could not have been more welcoming - a surprise welcome gift as well, much needed after a 210 mile drive.

    Very well maintained property. Shame the local pub doesn’t serve food in the evening at the weekend.

  • "Enjoyed a break over New Year in this cosy cottage."

    We were welcomed by the friendly owners, who helped us with our luggage and described how everything worked. There even a surprise gift basket full of goodies, for both ourselves and our dog. Nice walks in the area, a friendly local pub a few minutes walk, the Lord Nelson, where we and our dog were made most welcome and spent a very enjoyable New Year's Eve, We used the nearby bus service to Halifax and visited the recently renovated Piece Hall. It has lots of interesting little shops within its walls. Also within its walls, upstairs, we found a little gem, G's Cakes, a cosy cafe where we and our dog were made very welcome and serves cakes to die for!! Overall we had a very enjoyable break and will certainly stay at the Cottage in the Sky again.

  • "Lovely cottage - perfect for me and the dog."

    Very comfortable...only thing I'd change would be the sofa which is a bit firm but everything else excellent. The location is amazing...views and walks - we just set off and followed our noses. The local people were so friendly and the cottage owners were great and left a fab welcome hamper. Five stars from me and an appreciative woof from Ellie.

The property

A stone-built, end-terrace cottage situated in the conservation village of Luddenden, just four miles from the ever-popular Yorkshire town of Hebden Bridge.

This Luddenden cottage is situated on a steep hill set above another property, a style known locally as an ‘over-dwelling’ unique to the Calder Valley due to its hilly landscape.

It is accessed at the front at first floor level and provides a charming holiday cottage for a romantic retreat.

This charming Luddenden cottage has one double bedroom with beams and a picture window with magnificent views as well as a spacious bathroom.

On the second floor of this lovely holiday cottage in the Dales is a small well-equipped kitchen and a sitting room with a cosy, living flame-effect gas fire set in a feature stone fireplace.

Outside, there is a small balcony with outstanding views of the local countryside looking out across Calderdale, a great place to sit and relax after a hard day’s walking.

The village pub, built in the 17th century, is just a five-minute walk away, renowned for its hospitality, good ale and excellent food, while a ten- minute walk brings you to the hamlet of Midgley and its grocery shop selling local produce.

Enjoy inspiring walks from the doorstep across the beautiful moors or explore nearby Hebden Bridge, Haworth, and the bustling town of Skipton, all within an easy drive.

Look out for the Ted Hughes Festival taking place in the town of Mytholmroyd, his birthplace, each year, or visit Shibden Hall, an exquisite, six hundred year old timber manor house set within 37 hectares of the Shibden Valley!

This cosy Hebden Bridge cottage is the ideal holiday home for a couple to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy this historic corner of the Yorkshire Dales.

About the location

LUDDENDEN

Hebden Bridge 4 miles; Halifax 6 miles.

Luddenden is a conservation village in Calderdale, close to Hebden Bridge. The community is first mentioned in 1284, and in 1375 a corn mill was moved from Warley Town to exploit the Luddenden Brook. Nearby, the attractive town of Hebden Bridge is the home to the picturesque Rochdale Canal and a delightful Victorian railway station. The town of Mytholmroyd is an easy drive away, the birthplace of Poet Laureate Ted Hughes, and famous for the Cragg Vale Coiners. This is excellent walking country, with the National Trust Hardcastle Crags and the Pennine Way, plus the area hosted the Tour De France in 2014. Enjoy scenic drives and cycling across the moors, whilst nearby Haworth boasts the Parsonage Museum commemorating the famous Bronte family who lived there. The area is also a must for steam railway enthusiasts who will enjoy the thriving Worth Valley Railway, whilst the highly-acclaimed Eureka Museum in Halifax is noted for its unique Piece Hall and its Victorian architecture.
