This attractive cottage, once part of a Pennine sheep farm still holds a glimpse of that old tradition and is situated on a beautiful hillside within the village of Midgley above Hebden Bridge, the home of the National Trust’s Cragg Vale.
Having two bedrooms, this retreat is ideal for both families and couples who want to escape from their busy lifestyle and become at one with the rural delights.
From the southerly facing front garden you will enter a large well laid out porch with a rattan three piece suite that can be placed outside on the patio in good weather.
This is an ideal spot for quiet reading or just enjoying the spectacular, panoramic views across the valley below.
From there you will pass through a small hall into the sitting room with woodburning stove and comfortable seating.
Here you can relax through the evening watching a large flat television with free view channels, WiFi and Netflix or play some of the games provided.
French doors lead into the large diner/kitchen.
Fully equipped with all modern appliances it still however retains that country feel, with its oak cupboards and large ‘farmhouse’ table and chairs.
A rear door leads out into the sheltered paved yard, useful for hanging wet clothes.
Back in the hall take the lovely carpeted stairway up to the next floor which houses a nicely decorated bathroom with elegant fittings.
To the front of the cottage a large double bedroom continues that traditional feel with pine furniture and pretty bedding, although a walk-in wardrobe hides that modern touch.
Views from the large windows bring in light and sunshine and again the lure of the beautiful hills and valleys of Calderdale.
To the rear a warm, cosy twin bedroom is the perfect setting for peaceful sleep.
The old mullion windows overlook the farm woodland which has become ‘home’ to a variety of birds and wildlife.
Frequent visitors include rabbits, deer, grouse and owls, all of which, if you are lucky, may be viewed from the comfort of indoors.
When the weather is pleasant you can enjoy the garden or even wander down into the villages of Midgley and Luddenden with their nearby picturesque attractions.
A village shop selling all essentials is close by.
This area is a magnet for those seeking outdoor activities such as walking the many paths across the Calder Way or cycling the narrow hills and valleys around the moors.
Whilst more gentle pastimes include photography and painting which the numerous galleries in the area will testify to.
Enjoy scenic drives to the nearby beautiful tourist destinations of Hebden Bridge, Haworth with its famous Bronte Parsonage and Holmfirth, home of ‘Last of the Summer Wine’.
There is much to enjoy on this fabulous cottage holiday.
