The property

Set on a high promontory overlooking the wild and rugged countryside of Calderdale, this charming, upside-down wing of the owners’ stone-built farmhouse is situated in the tiny hamlet of Wainstalls, just two miles from Luddenden.

This lovely, restored property offers wonderful views of the surrounding area and first-class holiday accommodation, ideal for getting away from it all and enjoying a romantic break.

It is part of a large, non-working farm and on the first floor, there is a spacious living area with a curved ceiling, modern Velux windows and a large picture window on the gable end to take advantage of the spectacular views across the valley.

With a 50" screen television with Netflix, it makes a luxurious sitting area, while the double bed is positioned to take advantage of the fabulous views.

On the ground floor, there is a modern, well-equipped kitchen/diner, a first-class shower room and access to a small patio area, where you can enjoy a glass of wine in the evening sunshine.

You can also make use of the owners’ spacious grounds!

The local pub is just a two-minute walk away, renowned for its hospitality, good ale and excellent food, plus there are many inspiring walks across the beautiful moors that can be enjoyed from the doorstep.

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

Look out for the Ted Hughes Festival that takes 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 fabulous holiday home is ideal for a couple’s retreat, where you can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy this historic corner of the Yorkshire Dales.

  • “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. ...

    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.

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.
