  • "Lovely cottage with plenty of upstairs space for our family to relax & sleep in after a fun day exploring."

    The surrounding countryside is beautiful whilst the big cities of Manchester, Leeds & Bradford are less than an hour away.

  • "Lovely property and owners who very kindly left a bottle of wine for us, they were there if needed but left us to get on with our break, the property has everything needed for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful area and is spotlessly clean."

    Local pub is minutes away walking and serves good selection of food, we would not hesitate to rent this property again.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in Yorkshire, a great spot to go walking."

    The information pack provided by the owners was extremely useful and was full of useful tips. A bottle of wine and milk was also provided which was a nice touch. The only downside was it was noisy when it rained at night with the living space being up in the roof so I would not recommend to a light sleeper. The space has been cleverly used but it would be a squeeze for 4 people in my opinion. Overall we had a great stay and would visit Yorkshire again.

  • "Ash Tree Barn was the perfect place for us to stay for our visit to Calderdale."

    The place was beautifully done, comfortable and had all the facilities we required with a young family. The hosts were very friendly and approachable, and sorted out a query we had about the washing facilities promptly. The location is great for access to the countryside and local towns such as Hebden Bridge. There is also a beautiful garden area which would be brilliant for kids, but we were a bit unlucky with the Yorkshire weather!

  • "Booked for a birthday weekend we really enjoyed our stay at Ash Tree Barn."

    Very comfortable space with a well equipped kitchen and a bottle of wine to welcome us. A lovely touch, thank you. Own outside space was a bonus although the weather didn't permit prolonged use. Great views towards Stoodley Pike and open countryside. Quiet location we had a lovely 5 mile circular walk calling at the Cat I'th Well pub before the final push up the hill for home. Would highly recommend. Our only comment was that the 'how to get there' instructions could include a grid reference or what3words location to pin point exactly where the accommodation is before setting off from home. This suggestion is not just for Ash Tree Barn but for all accommodation.

  • "We really enjoyed staying at the property and it was very well equipped."

    A very picturesque location and the owners provided excellent instructions to find the property and the pack at the property was filled with lots of useful information on the local area and local walks we could go on, together with restaurant and takeaway reviews which were invaluable. Only complaint would be that a king size bed would be so much better. A great base for exploring West Yorkshire.

  • "We ( 2 adults and children aged 9 and 10) all enjoyed the location of this lovely farm house."

    The layout is cleverly done and the children loved the freedom of wandering outside playing on the swings and looking after the chickens! The owners were on site and so friendly when we saw them but their information book told you all you needed to know about the accommodation and the area. The views are wonderful and the location is an ideal base for exploring both Yorkshire and Lancashire. It was a super relaxing break. Would love to return.

  • "We chose Ash Tree Barn primarily due to it's location to Halifax centre."

    However, the description and photos really made up our minds and we were not disappointed. On arrival we found Ash Tree Farm eggs and a bottle of wine as a welcome gift, what a lovely thought. Everything was as described and more. The lounge was cosy and comfortable as was the bed. The kitchen was well equipped for our needs, especially the assortment of cleaning products which really impressed us. There is nothing we would criticise at all, the owners have done a great job and we will definitely be returning for another visit.

    A two minute walk to the local pub, which I would recommend based in the portion sizes alone! The weather wasn't great, but the facilities allowed our 8 and 4 year old to be entertained regardless of the weather. Really lovely place, and the owner was very friendly. The fresh eggs were beautiful and the bottle of wine a really nice touch.

  • "Ash tree is a wonderful place to stay , the location , setting and scenery made it very special."

    The open plan living and sleeping area gave spectacular views over the green fields and the big windows let in plenty of light.. We had a dog with us and there was plenty of local walks near by, some a bit tough on the legs but really enjoyable. It had all the facilities you needed for our two week stay and was very peaceful. The owner's where always willing to help with anything you needed, but left you alone just to get on with your holiday , which was great.. There was a pub 2 minutes walk away, called the Crossroads - We had some good meals in there, the pies and fish & chips where simply gorgeous. If you wanted a more varied range , go into Sowerby Bridge and you will find loads of pubs and eateries. We found a new Indian restraunt called Rajpoot and the food was gorgeous. Overall your holiday is what you make it and Ash Tree Barn is a fantastic base with everything you need for a great holiday.

  • "The owners of the cottage were really friendly & welcoming & the farm eggs & bottle of wine were a lovely gesture."

    However,the accommodation just wasn't for us. It was very basic and minimalist & generally failed to provide the wow factor. We found the bed to be very uncomfortable & found the open plan set up less than homely. It really just wasn't our kind of place. I do feel however that it's a lovely cosy place for a couple just not suitable to share with children (lack of privacy). maybe some privacy screens would help. It was a shame we didn't enjoy our stay but it wasn't the fault of the owners it was just personal taste.

  • "Would certainly recommend the property, it was ideal for us."

    Scenery is spectacular. The barn is advertised as a sleeps four accommodation. There were only two of us which was perfect. There was a double sofa bed for two extra people and as it has an open plan living/sleeping room privacy could be an issue.

  • "Kitchen needed to be cleaned before we could unload our things."

    Bathroom/toilet area hygiene was very poor especially around basin and toilet area. Happy with the facilities, area and welcoming owners.

    Thank you for your feedback; our sincere apologies for your disappointment. As you can see from our other reviews, the standard of the apartment in terms of its cleanliness and facilities is high. Unfortunately, on the week you visited, we were called away and had to rely on a friend to manage the changeover. We will ensure that this will not happen again. Thank you again for your comments.

  • "This accomodation is clean and comfortable however there are some aspects that future hirers should be aware of."

    Firstly the pictures in the listing, whilst accurate give the impression that the entrance is beneath the large windows wheras this is the opposite side and we initially were unsure we had found the right house. The drive to the property is full of deep potholes and could cause some damage to vehicles with low ground clearance, our 4x4 was perfect. There is little space in the property to hang clothes and no drawers to put personal things beyond a bedside cabinet. The most disappointing feature was the large window at the end of the property which in the photos looks out over the hills and the countryside, what is not clear is that there is a pavement and a busy road between the propery and the view so lying in bed with the curtains isn't really an option. So a nice propery but with disappointing aspects. ************************************************************* OWNER RESPONSE**************************** We are very sorry you were disappointed in some aspects of our property. We very rarely receive any negative feedback, as you will see from our other reviews. It is made clear in the description that we are a farm, and therefore the track leading to the house reflects this. You are the first to comment on storage space, and in response we have added more coat hangers to the hanging spaces. Our road leads into our small village and therefore the only traffic is local. Perhaps because it was bailing time, you are commenting on the tractors which are obviously crucial to our rural community. We are nevertheless pleased, despite your disappointments, you saw fit to still grade us as 'met expectations'. ***

Hebden Bridge, Haworth and the bustling town of Skipton are all within an easy drive and definitely worth exploring.

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.
