Gorgeous hilltop farmhouse, spectacular views, lovely interiors, Hebden Bridge, Haworth, Yorkshire Dales. Stunning landscape, great walks, wildlife, meadows, village pub. Pennine Way & Bronte Country

An inspiring cottage in an idyllic location, Elmet Farmhouse is a truly special place to stay. Surrounded by hay meadows in the hilltop village of Pecket Well above Hebden Bridge, the farmhouse has breathtaking views across the steep wooded valley of Hardcastle Crags towards Heptonstall and Stoodley Pike. With its bluebell woods, buttercup meadows and rolling heather moors, this is a unique corner of Yorkshire - the landscape that inspired the Brontë sisters and poet Ted Hughes.

The Dales are literally on your doorstep, so if you love nature, wildlife and the great outdoors, you’ll be in your element at Elmet Farmhouse. Set in a walkers’ paradise, surrounded by spectacular countryside, there are fantastic walks in every direction along riverside paths, woodland trails, moorland tracks and stone-paved packhorse trails. With pheasants, deer and owls in our meadows, sheep, cattle and ponies grazing in the neighbouring fields, and curlews and lapwings nesting among the heather up on ‘the tops’, Elmet offers a rural retreat in the heart of the Pennines, perfect for nature-lovers and birdwatchers.

A handsome 18th-century farmhouse with stone mullion windows and a huge carved fireplace with a wood-burning stove, Elmet Farmhouse is full of character and charm. Beautifully decorated and stylishly furnished, the interiors are as stunning as the views, with Scandinavian wood furniture, vintage textile hangings and beautiful lamps and wallpapers by local designer Hannah Nunn. Comfortable and spacious with a large lounge, roomy farmhouse kitchen, three double bedrooms and two bathrooms, Elmet Farmhouse provides luxurious self catering accommodation for 6 guests. Ideal for families and gatherings of friends, but cosy for couples and smaller groups, the farmhouse is extremely well-equipped. As well as WiFi, TV, DVD, washing machine and dishwasher, there are lots of maps, walks leaflets, books and vintage games.

The vibrant picturesque market town of Hebden Bridge, renowned for its quirky independent shops and double-decker terraces clinging to the hills, has lots of nice cafes and pubs. As well as butchers, bakers and designer-makers, there’s a 1920s cinema and towpath walks along the Rochdale Canal. Perched above Hebden Bridge is the ancient village of Heptonstall with its ruined 13th century church, handloom weavers’ cottages and octagonal Methodist chapel.

Historic Haworth, where the Brontë sisters wrote their extraordinary novels (including Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights), is a short scenic drive (or hike) over the moor. In addition to Brontë Country, Elmet Farmhouse is within easy reach of the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales National Park, including Wharfedale, Bolton Abbey and the limestone wonders of Malham Cove and Gordale Scar.

Back at the ranch, Elmet’s pretty cottage garden brimming with flowers is a wonderful place to sit out and enjoy the fabulous views. There are two outdoor dining areas overlooking our beautiful meadows, vegetable garden and historic barn. Children are welcome to play in our fields once the hay has been cut. The Robin Hood Inn, our friendly village pub serving home-cooked food and local beer, is just five minutes walk from the farmhouse.

The woodland paradise of Hardcastle Crags – one of the jewels in the National Trust’s crown – nestles in the valley just below Elmet Farmhouse. With over 25 miles of footpaths and a nice café in Gibson Mill, Hardcastle Crags is an inspiring place for a stroll at any time of year. The beautiful valleys of Crimsworth Dean, Colden Clough and Luddenden Dean also make delightful picnic spots, or you can hike up on ‘the tops’ through the heather to Stoodley Pike, Widdop or Top Withens (Wuthering Heights).

There are cultural delights in abundance within easy travelling distance of Elmet Farmhouse, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire, the award-winning Hepworth Museum and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, and Halifax’s magnificent 18th century Piece Hall, with Eureka National Children’s Museum next door. The elegant spa towns of Ilkley and Harrogate and the splendid cities of Leeds and York all make for great days out.
