A cosy retreat in historic Heptonstall


The Barn is a cosy retreat for those looking for a romantic place to escape the hustle and bustle. The two bedroomed property is situated in Heptonstall, a beautiful hill top village in the heart of West Yorkshire. The unique and popular town of Hebden Bridge is just a short walk down the hill, offering independent shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes. Stunning scenery is literally on your doorstep and the many routes from the property are ideal for dogs, walkers & cyclists.

Sleeping arrangements

Two double bedrooms as well as a sofa bed for short stays.

Interior layout

Downstairs there is a bright lounge and fully equipped kitchen.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a modern bathroom.
A small stone outhouse adjoins for logs, bins and secure bike storage.
Patio doors open out from the lounge onto a small block paved courtyard with outdoor seating.


Originally built as a Barn in the 18th Century, the cottage is made of traditional, solid Yorkshire stone but has been modernised through a recent conversion with the addition of double glazed timber windows and roof lights. The original timber beams can still be seen in the vaulted ceilings upstairs. A wide patio door opens out from the living area onto a block paved courtyard with a small area for seating. Footpaths literally start from the doorstep of the cottage.

The cottage is situated in the old part of the village with the majority of the buildings dating from the 18th and 19th Century. The streets are cobbled and narrow which give a quaint charm and allow visitors to wander at ease. Both pubs and the local shop are all on the Main Street just 200 yds' from the property. There is also a museum (closed in Winter), and three churches (one ruined, one early Victorian and one octagonal Methodist chapel). In the other direction, a footpath leads directly from the cottage into open countryside - with the beautiful Hardcastle Crags National Trust reserve just over a one mile walk away.

Guestbook reviews

Beautiful, cosy, clean retreat. Weather awful but it didn't spoil our weekend break. Lots of walking with the dogs and nice to return to a wood fire.
Local pubs lovely & locals really friendly. Thank you.

Despite the weather, it has been a relaxing and lovely stay at the Barn: nice cozy fire, famously yummy bread and the first hosts who care about recycling as much as we do :-) Great hosts and we are sad to leave this lovely village. Thank you!

Thank you so very much Nic for making Christmas 2019 so special for us. We really appreciate all your extra special touches the lovely toiletries, fresh bread, chocolate, Christmas Tree and tinsel. You have done the barn up so stylishly, comfortably and thoughtfully that it will be hard to leave!
