The Loft - a self contained light and airy 200 year old farm building in the hamlet of Swartha with magnificent views across the Aire valley. Ideal for walking, cycling or just relaxing. There are walks from the doorstep across fields, through woods or on country roads. Easy access to the Yorkshire Dales, Bolton Abbey, Worth Valley Railway, Leeds/Liverpool canal, Haworth plus the scenic areas of Skipton and Malham. Local amenities are in Silsden, Addingham & Ilkley.
“Juliet’s place is tucked away in the countryside yet close enough to the local village to not be completely isolated. The information pack in the living room is a very thoughtful touch and we sampled the local takeaway ‘Purple Garlic’ during our stay which did not disappoint. The space itself is compact but functional and it’s clear that it has been furnished to a high standard - particularly the bedlinens which were exquisite. We stayed with our 5 month old which was absolutely fine and the travel cot was a lovely touch. I would not recommend it for families with active babies due to the size of the space, but it is a lovely retreat for couples or those with younger ones. Juliet was really helpful throughout and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and her lovely loft to our friends and family!”
Set in the steep and stunning Luddenden Valley within 13 hectares of beautiful Calderdale countryside, Jerusalem Farm Barn is a barn conversion set close to Jerusalem Farm Campsite and is surrounded by a landscape of woodland valleys and high moorland plateaux. With a welcoming atmosphere and accessibility-friendly facilities, Jerusalem Farm Barn is a perfect place to enjoy the local nature reserve, which provides a safe haven for woodland birds, woodpeckers, herons and deer.
“This is great if you want to get away from it all. Having no phone signal was a bonus as we all talked to each other and played games. We enjoyed nature being literally on our doorstep. Any questions we had were answered very promptly. We are looking forward to returning in the future.”
A rural retreat with commanding views. We are up at 1000ft on the back of Ilkley Moor looking south towards Haworth and Bronte country as well as being on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park with Bolton Abbey just 5 miles away. Although isolated, there are good local rail and bus links to Bradford and Leeds for those missing city life! The Shippon is ideal for that "get away from it all feeling" and for those who don't want all the amenities on their doorstep! Well behaved dogs welcome
“Just returned from the most peaceful week at the Shippon. The views are incredible and the accommodation itself is well equipped, clean, tidy, and homely, as well as very dog friendly. Keith and Jane are the most welcoming hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The Shippon is situated perfectly for gorgeous walks straight from the door and the addition of the maps really helped us explore the area to its fullest! Thank you both. We would happily return :)”
