    “Surprise 70th Birthday Weekend Away”

    I found this little (although you can't call it little) gem when looking for holiday accommodation, which would sleep 8 people across 5 rooms, for a surprise weekend away to celebrate my Father In Law's 70th Birthday. My checklist was small e.g. 5 bedrooms, a couple of bathrooms, and a pool table located in a sociable area of the property. We weren't bothered where we went (to a degree) as long as the above was included. ...

    I found this little (although you can't call it little) gem when looking for holiday accommodation, which would sleep 8 people across 5 rooms, for a surprise weekend away to celebrate my Father In Law's 70th Birthday. My checklist was small e.g. 5 bedrooms, a couple of bathrooms, and a pool table located in a sociable area of the property. We weren't bothered where we went (to a degree) as long as the above was included. Lots of places came up in my endless searches but none were able to deliver everything we wanted, until Stephenson House appeared. I couldn't believe the price for what was included e.g. 5 bedrooms, all with their own en-suite/ private bathrooms, and two sitting areas (one with a half decent pool table, log burner and amazing features). I quickly made enquires, which were promptly answered by the lovely Emma who could not do enough for us, and before you knew it we were booked in. There were a few emails back and forth as I went into preparation overdrive, but Emma was extremely patient and helpful throughout. We arrived in the area over two hours early, so we could get our bearings and grab a pub lunch, but before we ate we headed up to the house to make sure we could find it ok (which we did, it’s very simple). As we approached a gentleman was leaving the house and greeted us, asking if we were checking in. We advised we would be, but that we were VERY early and he simple told us to go on in, wishing us a lovely stay. We couldn't believe our luck, especially as we had a buffet to prepare before the Birthday Boy arrived. Going into the house we were greeted with a lovely personalise welcome note (which we had to replace with a decoy of our own), accompanied with a huge, freshly baked Lemon Drizzle cake (cooked to perfection) along with generous basic supplies e.g. milk, fruit juice, tea, coffee, sugar, logs, kindling, firelighters, matches, cleaning products, and toilet rolls. Now we've stayed in a lot of self-catering places, and have come to expect a complimentary toilet roll when we arrive, but always expect to have to pop out and buy some more at some point during our stay, but these toilet rolls must have been made by Mary Poppins herself. Both myself, and my husband had very runny noses, but the rolls just went on and on and on, and are probably still going on now - lol! Neither of us ended up with sore noses despite the texture of the tissue being half way between soft and rough, and the icing on the cake these toilet rolls are made of Bamboo, so very Eco-friendly. Needless to say I am now a Bamboo toilet roll convert and have ordered some for my own home. Anyway, enough about the toilet roll, the property itself is amazing. All of the rooms are very well sized, and the main sitting area is immense. The log burner and fireplace would normally be my main focal point when staying in a place like this, but I couldn't help my eyes wandering around the room, checking out all of the other quirky features. The views from nearly all of the rooms (up and down) are fabulous, come rain or shine (and we had both), day and night. Going to bed and looking out of the bedroom windows it felt like we were staring out of an aeroplane cockpit, due to the valley in front of the house. We didn't get much time to explore the area, as we couldn't drag the Birthday Boy away from the pool table for too long, but we plan to explore a lot more when we go back. We did however venture on a little walk up near Hardcastle Crags, and had a lot of fun finding our own trails. Hebden Bridge is less than a mile away and is not only pretty, but has everything you could need. What more can I say. It’s perfect for a family break away, for any occasion, but particularly great for surprise gatherings. Tip: If you are planning a surprise, allow the unsuspecting guest to check out the kitchen, and dining area, whilst the rest of you wait quietly in the snug, but keep the door to the main sitting area closed. Eventually, after they’ve settled, take them up to view the bedrooms, leaving the master ‘til last, and bring them back down the second set of stairs to reveal the main sitting area. The house is so big they won’t suspect there is another room downstairs, never mind one that big. You could even hide a second set of guests in there ;-)

Journey to Haworth where the splendid Parsonage Museum commemorates 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 is in Halifax, noted for its unique Piece Hall and its Victorian architecture.
