DetailsPopples Cottage is a self-catering cottage located in Bradshaw. It is a charming, south facing stone-built, 180-year-old home, offering accommodation of a high standard and comfort. The cottage itself was originally a farm cottage forming part of Popples, which comprised at one end of an old board school (Popples Academy!), the schoolmaster's house next door and a barn and a farmhouse at the other end of the row.
Popples Cottage is situated within easy reach of local facilities, with a bus stop, post box and general provisions shop nearby.

In Halifax (3 miles away) there are banks, shops, theatres, bus and train stations, and a selection of superstores. There is also easy access to the motorway network and places further afield such as Leeds, York and Manchester are all well within an hour away.
