Description

Nestled in the heart of the Pennines, Lee Royd lies in Hebden Bridge, a Yorkshire town famed for its artistic identity.


In the heart of the Pennines, Lee Royd lies in Hebden Bridge, a Yorkshire town famed for its artistic identity and as a centre for outdoor pursuits. Hebden Bridge is the unconventional centre of a distinctly non-metropolitan arts scene, and annual events include no less than eight festivals, covering music, arts and poetry. Hebden Bridge is also perfect as a centre for walking and cycling.
Home to artists, actors, musicians and writers, and inspired by the surrounding rolling countryside, the pretty cobbled streets of Hebden Bridge are overflowing with pop-up galleries and independent book and craft shops. The local picture house, an attraction in itself, shows not only films, but broadcasts live events from major stand-up comedians to international music acts. Real ale and music lovers alike are catered for with some of the pubs playing host to local musicians. The esteemed Trades Club hosts international artists ranging from Patti Smith and Laura Marling to Fairport Convention.
Ted Hughes, the poet laureate, was born nearby, and his first wife, the American poet Sylvia Plath (as well as Hughes’ parents) are buried locally in historic Heptonstall, a scenic twenty minute walk up the wooded and heathered hill behind the house, where roe deer may wander. The view over the valley below and towards Studeley Pike is quite spectacular. An extensive library of their history and work is available within this property together with a selection of walking books and maps.
As Britain’s first official ‘Walkers are Welcome’ town, unsurprisingly, there is excellent walking nearby with the Calderdale Way and also the Pennine Way, and its latest extension, the Hebden Bridge Loop, going straight past the property. Hardcastle Crags, owned by the National Trust, is a must see with its beautiful wooded valley, streams, kingfishers and carpet of bluebells in the spring. The Rochdale canal winds its way through Hebden Bridge, with a tow path that offers level walking and cycling and is ideal for picnics, as well as being a water-colourist’s and photographer’s dream (as is the south-facing view over the Calder Valley from the property’s veranda).
More challenging cycling, as featured on the 2014 Tour de France, and 2015’s Tour de Yorkshire can also be enjoyed from the doorstep. Ideally positioned between two national parks, a fine walk or scenic drive can take you to Haworth’s Brontë Country, with its steam railway of ‘Railway Children’ fame. The walk takes you past ’Top Withins’, Emily Brontë’s inspiration for ‘Wuthering Heights’. A pleasant drive further north takes you to the Yorkshire Dales, or south to the TV series ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ country. Hebden Bridge and the surrounding area lend themselves to filming and have featured in the Ray Winstone film ‘Fanny and Elvis’ and the TV series ‘Happy Valley’ and ‘Last Tango in Halifax’.
The property itself is a cosy Yorkshire stone house full of traditional character and charm. There are many original Victorian features including an impressive stone fireplace which was re-discovered beneath the 1970s plaster work when renovated in 2000. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

Ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen with wooden floors. First floor: 2 twin bedrooms. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. Second floor: 1 double (6ft) bedroom.

    We had a great weekend break at the cottage in the lovely market town that is Hebden Bridge. The facilities and location of the property were very good. Hebden Bridge has the excellent and legendary music venue, the Trades Club, and has some wonderful bars, namely Drink? and The Fox and Goose. There are lovely walks or hikes along the canal and surrounding stunning countryside.

    Lee Royd is a lovely, warm, cosy, well equipped cottage. It is extremely comfortable, accommodating 6 people easily. There is no parking directly adjacent to the property, you have to park on the road further up from the cottage. There are steps directly from the pavement to the terrace where the cottage is, they are quite steep with no handrail, so elderly residents need to take very good care. The owners were amazing with regards to the booking, easily contactable, very pleasant to communicate with and so concerned that everything was alright for us during our stay, truly wonderful!

    Ideal holiday cottage for a family with children , but not really suitable for two married couples . Second and third bedrooms very small, no storage for clothes or suitcases. Shared bathroom and toilet!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We offer our lovingly tended home to guests. The local architectural style is tall, narrow buildings on a hillside which we think rather charming, as do most of our guests. We provide lots of hanging space and under-bed and shelf storage. There is one bathroom which we do not consider unusual in a house of this type.

    We had a very pleasant stay. The beds and furniture were comfortable and the cottage well equipped. Many fascinating books too! We were pleased, however, that there were only 6 of us for the weekend, after which we were down to 3, as the third bedroom is small and lacks any storage space, or even any space for luggage. So, for anything more than a weekend, I would interpret "6" as "4 adults and 2 children".

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. We have now included under bed storage boxes, some shelf storage, and increased clothes hanging space in that room, so the house is all set for 6 holidaying adults.

    We had a fantastic time staying at Lee Royd. The house was cosy and beautifully restored. It had all that we required for a comfortable stay and a great view of Hebden Bridge and the surrounding valley.

    Struck by the friendliness of the locals. House fine, plenty of gear, books, games. Couple of cobwebs but no big deal.

    Lovely place, very homely and comforting. A place definitely for the whole family to come and have a break from the norm. I would strongly consider to come back if we ever choose to stay at Hebden Bridge again.
