A Historic 4 Bedroom Family House in the heart of Pennines

We are interested in a swap to North America or Europe Summer 2022. Our Grade 2 listed house was built for weavers in about 1790. It was originally two dwellings, one on top of the other, and for a while it had a shop at the front. It is now a largish family home on 5 floors (lots of stairs!). There are 4 proper bedrooms - but room for extra guests. We have original beams & a wood burning stove, views of the beautiful hillside. We have a small cobbled courtyard at the back, quiet & sunny, but not fenced off as our neighbours have access through it. We also have a separate garden (down the lane & down steep steps) with barbecue area and badminton lawn, by the river. We are on the main road at the front with parking nearby. The house is five minutes walk from an eclectic mix of shops, pubs, great cafes & restaurants. Public transport is good: you don`t need to drive to enjoy the local area.

Bring your walking boots or wellies to explore the fantastic countryside on our doorstep. Try out some local ales in one of the nearby bars - or relax in front of our wood-burner with a board game from our collection!

About the location

Hebden Bridge is a thriving old mill town. It has a Bohemian feel: very welcoming to all ages and backgrounds. For its small area there is a lot going on. There are over 30 bars and cafes within a 10 minute walk of our house! We are near Howarth with easy connections to Manchester (35 mins by train) & Leeds (55 mins).
Old mills and chimneys are still dotted around the landscape, together with the `under and over` houses like ours which typify the area. The old mill worker tracks surrounding the town provide hundreds of different walks - canalside, woodland, moorland, rivers and waterfalls.
