Stunning 18C hilltop farmhouse with breathtaking views, Hebden Bridge, Haworth, Yorkshire Dales. Beautiful interiors, cottage garden, hay meadows, inspiring countryside, walkers' paradise.

 

A farm cottage like no other, Elmet Farmhouse is a truly special place. Surrounded by hay meadows in the hilltop village of Pecket Well, 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 countryside and the great outdoors, you’ll be in your element at Elmet Farmhouse. Set in a walkers’ paradise, the Dales are literally on your doorstep and there are fantastic walks in every direction 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 offers a rural idyll, spectacular landscape and a haven for wildlife.

Finalist in Welcome to Yorkshire’s 2016 White Rose Awards, Elmet Farmhouse itself is a pure delight. A handsome stone-built 18th-century yeoman clothier’s house, it has stone mullion windows, a huge carved stone fireplace and a cosy wood-burning stove. Beautifully furnished and exquisitely decorated, 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.

The strikingly picturesque town of Hebden Bridge is just two miles away down in the valley. Best Small Market Town in the Great British High Street Awards, Hebden is renowned for its quirky independent shops and its distinctive double-decker terraces clinging to the hills. A scenic drive over the moor is the historic village of Haworth, where the Brontë sisters wrote their famous novels. The perfect base for exploring Brontë Country, Elmet Farmhouse is within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, including Wharfedale, Bolton Abbey, Gordale Scar and Malham Cove.

With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, Elmet Farmhouse accommodates 6 people very comfortably so it’s ideal for families and groups of friends. The spacious lounge and roomy 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 hay meadows next to the vegetable garden and historic barn. There’s plenty of space for children to run around and they’re welcome to play in our fields once the hay has been cut.

The village of Pecket Well has a friendly pub within easy walking distance serving excellent 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 – is within easy walking distance. You can hike to Stoodley Pike or Top Withins (Wuthering Heights) or explore the intriguing hidden valleys of Crimsworth Dean, Colden Clough and Luddenden Dean. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire, Halifax’s magnificent newly 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.
