Nestled in the lush green Pennine hills, only a stone’s throw from the vibrant bustling market town of Hebden Bridge, The Barn is an idyllic, stylish, private barn conversion in the grounds of our own home. Check us out on Instagram @greathousefarm for more photos!

The space
We are set in 4 acres of lush gardens and meadow fields on the hillside above the beautiful Cragg Vale and Calder valleys and have stunning views all around. We are perfectly located for both active and more relaxing holiday activities. The local area is famous for mountain biking, road cycling and hill walking. We are located on the edge of a nature reserve, and the surrounding area is peaceful, quiet and vibrant with wildlife.

The farm is a true retreat, completely separate from our neighbours, offering peace and quiet to enjoy the countryside, views and wildlife, yet only a 25 minute walk or 5 minute drive to pubs, cafes and restaurants in the nearby village of Mytholmroyd.

You have privacy from the main house behind trees, and we are located at the end of a farm track up in the hills above the valley so there is no passing traffic. There is just one other holiday cottage on site, and you each have separate private patio areas which do not overlook. Both cottages can be booked together for exclusive use - please see our other listing for this.

We are lucky to have an abundance of wildlife right on our doorstep and regularly see deer and pheasant wandering through the garden. The bird life is also amazing and we have a huge range of garden birds regularly visiting and frequently see birds of prey and heron hunting in our fields and pond.

The moors are literally right outside our gate, and you can walk up onto the tops in 5 minutes. We are also within a few minutes’ walk of a nature reserve.

The Barn

The barn is a fully renovated conversion newly remodelled into a luxury holiday home. You have a large open plan, light and airy living room / dining / kitchen space with high vaulted ceilings and a log burning stove. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, grill, induction hob, microwave, Dolce Gusto coffee pod machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer. The living area features a fabulously comfortable armchair and sofa, and a large dining table. We provide internet tv, FM/DAB radio and a bluetooth speaker.

The double bedroom is spacious, with a king size memory foam bed and top quality linen. The bathroom is the pièce de résistance with twin sinks, deep freestanding rolltop bath, underfloor heating and a massive wet room style rainfall shower. You have exclusive use of the patio outside which has lovely comfy outdoor armchairs and is the perfect spot to sit and admire the view all year round. If you have a larger party up to 4 people we can provide two single folding z-beds or a travel cot. Alternatively, we have a neighbouring cottage which sleeps two, and guests can book both together for parties of 4-6 people.

We also have a secure bike / gear store which guests are welcome to use. There is a bike maintenance stand and we can also loan you bike cleaning and repair equipment and use of a hosepipe!!

Guest access
Your barn and patio is for your private use throughout your stay. You also have private parking immediately outside. Guests are very welcome to use all of our gardens except the small lawn and patio immediately next to the main house where our children play. We own the fields immediately in front of and behind the house and garden, and you are welcome to use both for dog exercise off the lead.

Access

We are 1 mile from the nearest public transport so a car is highly recommended.

Our lane is unadopted and steep, uneven and narrow in places. Most cars should have no problems with access, but if you have very low suspension or a very large vehicle (larger than short ford transit van) then we can recommend safe parking about 1/2 mile away. We provide a complimentary luggage shuttle service.

The farm track is full tarmac from the main road most cars except those with very low suspension will have no problems getting here. Vans up to short transit size will fit but nothing larger. If you have a larger vehicle there is parking available about half a mile away and we can help you shuttle your luggage up the hill.

Other things to note
Family

We are very family friendly and welcome young visitors. We can lend you a small travel cot and / or 2 folding single beds with prior notice. We have a young family so can also provide all the usual baby paraphernalia...high chair, steriliser, bumbo, bouncer etc. Please just let us know in advance what you require!

Pets

We welcome well behaved dogs with prior notice please. We politely ask that you do not allow your pets to go on the furniture. We have a young family so we ask that dogs do not run loose around the garden please. We have no livestock so dogs are very welcome to exercise freely in our fields above and below the garden. The surrounding hills and moors offer excellent dog walking.

Sports and activities

The cottage is ideally positioned for a huge range of activities during your break, and we have something to offer for cyclists, walkers, bird watchers, photographers and those who just want to disconnect from real life for a few days, sit back and relax in stunning countryside.

Cragg Vale is on the route of the 2014 Tour de France Grand Depart and we are in fantastic road and mountain biking country. We can give lots of recommendations for great local routes.

For walkers the Pennine way is only a mile away and the possibilities for highland and lowland walks nearby are many and varied.
