Heptonstall is a beautiful hill top village situated in the heart of Calderdale, West Yorkshire, some 500 feet above the popular and bustling town of Hebden Bridge. The village has 2 pubs, a cafe, a village post office, a small museum and a social and bowling club.
The cottage sleeps 2 adults and 2 children (plus an additional sofa bed for 2 adults for short stay) and has full gas central heating from a combi boiler and a multi-fuel burning stove (logs and kindling provided). It is a brand new conversion completed to the highest standards with a fully fitted kitchen and bathroom.
Bicycle storage is available in an adjoining outhouse and there is free parking on site - a rarity in the centre of the village. For the non-drivers, a regular bus service runs between Heptonstall and Hebden Bridge train station.
The barn has been sensitively converted in keeping with the Grade II listed status using original Yorkshire stone and has a lovely log burning stove and stone hearth. The owners will be on-hand in the adjoining house.
The surrounding countryside is breathtaking; ideal for walking and cycling, including the nearby National Trust owned Hardcastle Crags. There are literary links to both the Bronte family in nearby Haworth and to the late poet laureate, Ted Hughes and his wife Sylvia Plath, who is buried in the village church yard - as featured in the hit TV series Happy Valley.
The unique and popular town of Hebden Bridge is just a short walk down the hill, offering dozens of independent shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes.
