  • "The cottage was beautiful and in a great location."

    Nice welcome pack on arrival. Just a lovely week in a lovely place, we will be back

  • "We have stayed here 3 times so you can tell we are happy with the cottage and location."

    The only thing I would mention is the parking is a little tight if you are a nervous driver.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location right on the canal."

    Cottage is small but has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The village has shops, pubs, restaurants, train station, regular bus service and a petrol station. There are lots of places to walk and it's only 1 mile from the bustling Hebdon Bridge. The main road in Mytholmroyd is very busy but the cottage is set back in the courtyard so reduces the noise.

  • "Absolutely fell in love with this cottage."

    It’s just beautiful, comfortable and just right for the two of us. Everything we needed was there. The cottage was lovely and clean. Would absolutely stay again. There is parking outside the cottage but it is a bit tight.

  • "Lovey cosy cottage situated in a little square."

    Backs on to the canal tow path which looks idyllic though the cottage picks up traffic noise from the busy road 50 metres to the front. Cottage very clean, well equipped and a lovely Xmas welcome pack was a real treat. Everything in good working order. I feel the cottage would be suited best to a couple or the same with a tot only. The one settee is said to be a 3 seater but if there were 3 grown ups that would be a squeeze. Great walking from the doorstep along the canal and in the woodlands surrounding. Lots to do in the location and nearby villages. Many good cafes and pubs, speciality shops.

  • "Lovely small but perfectly formed cottage with all mod cons in a fantastic location."

    I stayed for a week with my teenage daughter and our dog. The amount of food and supplies left by the owners was amazing. There is not a lot of storage space and none in the single bedroom, so bear that in mind. We brought a pen for our dog which, I’d recommend as there is not a door to the stairs and the owners state they prefer dogs not to go upstairs. Also bear in mind the only door is the front door which has access straight onto the main road, so if you have a dog that is used to being let out in the garden to toilet at home, you will need to take it out on a lead. Saying that, there is a green space and the canal right next to the cottage so it’s not a big deal. We had no problem parking outside the cottage but space is tight. The main road outside isn’t double yellowed if you do have problems. Hebden Bridge centre is a lovely 1 mile walk along the canal and there is a train line to Leeds and Manchester so you can pretty much do without a car for a week. unfortunately there was a replacement bus service to Manchester during our stay but normally it’s only half an hour. I’ve seen other reviews about traffic noise but we weren’t bothered by it. One thing I would suggest to the owners is blinds in the bathroom. I’m not sure why they haven’t installed them as they are fitted to every other window and it’s a bit disconcerting using the bathroom when there are canal boats moored up outside waiting for the lock. Other than that, it is a great base to stay and I would definitely recommend it.

  • "Most cottages leave some milk for arriving guests and while I was disappointed there was none, I couldn’t understand why we had been left 15 eggs in the fridge."

    As the cottage is small, guests may want to store cases or bags on top of bedroom cupboard and as such, it would be a good idea if they are cleaned a couple of times or more a year. Hope these two suggestions make sense - I think they’ll improve the guest experience of what is a nice place

  • "I’d read a few reviews after I’d booked so was a little bit apprehensive but I needn’t have worried - this place was brilliant."

    Yes you could hear traffic, but it’s in a town so you’d expect that, but it was never sufficient to disturb sleep. If you are a light sleeper bring earplugs. Yes the parking is not guaranteed, but you don’t need a car as the walks and public transport are so good, so just park up and leave it. Yes the bit beside the cottage is derelict space, but bring a camping chair and go and sit by the canal lock 50 yards behind the cottage, and watch the boats come back and forward. Yes the stairs are a bit uneven, but it’s a 200 year old cottage so you’d expect that - just take care. Yes there isn’t frosted glass in the bathroom, but just run the shower for a few minutes as the water is so hot it soon steams the windows up, and the narrowboats going past are usually far more bothered about the upcoming lock than looking into a little window to catch a flash! I do think some previous reviewers just look for things to complain about. The owners left us a load of stuff to use - eggs, bread, milk, tea, coffee, orange juice, porridge and oat cakes, which is probably the best welcome pack we’ve seen, although some oil and butter would have really made it perfect. The cottage itself is so clean, and well decorated that you forget how old it is. It’s small, only one room downstairs, but it’s plenty big enough for two. I cooked twice whilst we were there and there was just enough space although it was tight until we worked out the best places to put all of our stuff. The bed was really comfortable, and the pictures don’t really do it justice, it’s a lovely room. The second room hasn’t any drawers or wardrobes though so that might cause problems if there are three of you. But for two it’s perfect. Easy 20 minute walk along the river into Hebden Bridge, saving all the stress of trying to get parked, with the added bonus of being able to have a glass of something nice at one of the many lovely places in Hebden Bridge. Absolutely loved it and it’s probably the best place we’ve stayed in for years.

  • "The cottage was amazingly clean & everything provided & beyond!"

    Lots of goodies were left for a VERY welcome arrival. A great location, a short walk to shops & restaurants & Hebden Bridge, a beautiful town & further afield lots to see & do. The road is VERY NOISY & with searing temperatures the small windows that did open (which was limited) didn't help with any air flow, but then we had to contend with the traffic noise, so it was difficult to sleep! Limited car parking space which left the immediate residents irritated, better that guests park across the road in the car park. NO REAR DOOR & NO GARDEN which means having a dog is difficult. A space is available for an outside area, shame it's not been used for that. Therefore a stable door would be a better option for fresh air & preventing the dog going out onto a main road, so the door had to be shut. Overall a great stay but needed a few tweaks to be perfect.

    We had specifically filtered on properties with a garden/patio area and would certainly not have booked this property had we known that the garden/patio area was unusable. Our plans had been to sit out upon our return from our walks/days out but there was nowhere available to do this.

  • "You are still advertising the 'shared courtyard' on your site for this property even though it is in fact an overgrown piece of land with derelict sheds and weeds."

    There is nowhere to sit outside and generally the outside of the property is overgrown with weeds. I raised this matter 2 years ago and the visitors book in the property is full of similar comments. Parking at the property is still an issue and visitors with larger cars will find it very difficult to park. However, this cottage is ideally situated for walking along the canal and we were glad to be in such a good spot .

    We will certainly be returning again. We left some items as we had to leave early due to a family emergency and the owner was great and allowed us to return to collect our things the next day. Great for walks, local pubs and such easy access, either walk or train into Hebden Bridge. There was everything we could think of in the cottage and lots of lovely touches and a welcome pack with some luxury items. We have no hesitation of recommending this to any one. There are negative comments about the parking on some reviews, we had no issues what so ever and plenty of space. Don't hesitate, book this cottage you won't be disappointed.

  • "The cottage is very compact and we found that with 2 adults, a child and a dog it was pretty cramped."

    Good points: The cottage is quite nice and enjoys a good location on the canal path within easy walkung distance of Hebden Bridge (1 mile). The house was clean and you get a little welcome pack. Wifi worked well as did the TV with BT freeview. There is a washing machine. Not so good points: Nothing staggering to report but a number of small issues that would really improve the house if they were resolved. Why oh why is there no blind on the bathroom window? The only window on the house without one yet it's the one that most needs it! Both my wife and I had to duck rapidly when having our showers due to passing canal barges with people on the roofs of them having direct view into the bathroom. The barges stop directly outside the window as there is a canal lock next to the house so this must be a regular occurence and something which would be an easy fix. The kitchen is tiny with hardly any work top space so it would be pretty tricky to cook a meal as there simply isn't the space to do so. Also, it's poorly kitted out with the plates and crockery looking tired and a lack of cooking equipment like pans etc. My wife commented that it was kitted out like a student kitchen and that's a pretty good description! The kitchen itself looks pretty new so I don't understand why the owner didn't maximise the available space and have a slightly bigger kitchen as would make a huge difference. Also, it would cost very little to improve the kitchen utensils. The welcome pack was a bit odd as it contained various items yet there wasn't a tea bag to be found in the house. Also, an empty kitchen towel holder. Would be good if these small things were supplied instead of bombay mix and cookies..... Watch the stairs as the risers are very uneven and wouldn't be suitable for a lot of people. The visitors book had a horrible story from recently about a guest who slipped on the 3rd step and hit the kitchen unit at the bottom, breaking their foot and requiring 17 stitches in their face. The parking space is pretty tight and we didn't take our car out in the 2 nights we stayed as we were concerned about getting it back in. Upon our arrival, the parking space had a neighbour's van in it so we had to ask them to move. We have an Audi A4 estate but there is no way I'd try and park anything bigger at the house. Overall, it certainly wasn't the worst place we've ever stayed, however we would't stay at the cottage again if we were visiting the area. Could be much better than it is.

    A nice walk to Hebden Bridge with its coffee shops and Bistros The neighbours are very friendly and helpful.

    The location by the canal was pleasant though we were somewhat aware of traffic noise, especially cars and motorbikes speeding at night. The welcome pack was very generous and much appreciated. The WiFi worked well, never dropping the connection and the TV had plenty of channels to choose from. Parking and manoeuvring space is rather restricted due to other residents' cars but, as we never used ours, it wasn't an issue. We had lovely lunches at The Stubbing Wharf in Hebden Bridge and At The Weavers, an Italian restaurant in Luddendenfoot, an easy walk along the tow path.
