Details

Gorgeous hilltop farmhouse, inspiring interiors, breathtaking views, Hebden Bridge, Haworth, Yorkshire Dales. Stunning countryside, great walks and wildlife, lovely garden, hay meadows, village pub.

 A farm cottage like no other, Elmet Farmhouse is a truly special place. Surrounded by hay meadows in the hilltop village of Pecket Well above Hebden Bridge, it has breathtaking views across the steep wooded valley of Hardcastle Crags towards the ancient village of Heptonstall. 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.

If you love the great outdoors, you’ll be in your element at Elmet Farmhouse. Set in a walkers’ paradise, the Dales are literally on your doorstep, with fantastic walks along riverside paths, 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 up on ‘the tops’, Elmet is offers a haven for wildlife in a spectacular landscape.

A handsome stone-built 18th-century yeoman clothier’s house, Elmet has stone mullion windows, a huge carved stone fireplace and a cosy wood-burning stove. Beautifully furnished, the farmhouse has a wonderful atmosphere and the interiors are as stunning as the views. Natural wood furniture, textile hangings and lovely lamps and wallpapers by local designer Hannah Nunn are just a few of the treats in store.

Picturesque Hebden Bridge - Best Small Market Town in the Great British High Street Awards - is renowned for its quirky independent shops and its double-decker terraces clinging to the hills. Historic Haworth, where the Brontë sisters wrote their famous novels, is a scenic drive over the moor. The perfect base for exploring Brontë Country, Elmet Farmhouse is within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, including Wharfedale, Bolton Abbey and Malham Cove.

With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, Elmet Farmhouse accommodates 6 guests very comfortably so it’s ideal for families and groups of friends. The spacious lounge and farmhouse kitchen have ample seating and the whole house is very well equipped. As well as WiFi, TV, DVD, washing machine and dishwasher, there are maps, walks leaflets and vintage games.

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. There’s plenty of space for children and they’re welcome to play in our fields once the hay has been cut.

The village of Pecket Well has a friendly pub serving home-cooked food and local beer. Hebden Bridge has butchers, bakers and designer-makers, as well as a 1920s cinema and numerous cafes and pubs. Heptonstall with its ruined 13th century church, handloom weavers’ cottages and octagonal Methodist chapel is a fascinating place to explore.

The woodland paradise of Hardcastle Crags – one of the jewels in the National Trust’s crown – nestles in the valley below. You can hike to Stoodley Pike or Top Withins (Wuthering Heights) or explore the hidden valleys of Crimsworth Dean, Colden Clough and Luddenden Dean. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire, Halifax’s magnificent newly-restored Piece Hall, the elegant spa towns of Ilkley and Harrogate, the award-winning Hepworth Museum and Yorkshire Sculpture Park and the vibrant cities of Leeds and York are all within range so there’s always lots to do.
