Information on Over the Bridge
Over The Bridge is a detached, 18thC, Grade II Listed cottage situated in the heart of Ripponden’s picturesque conservation village at the foot of an ancient Packhorse bridge. The cottage overlooks the River Ryburn and has its own fishing rights. Nearby is the ‘oldest pub’ in Yorkshire and also St Bartholomews Church. The 50-mile waalking route The Calderdale Way passes right by us, and there are other excellent walks to be enjoyed from the village, as well as many cycle routes.
After a day’s activity why not sample some of the numerous pubs and restaurants in the area. We are a short driving distance from many key tourist attractions including Hebden Bridge, The Bronte Country, (home place of the Bronte Sisters), Last of the Summer Wine Country, Esholt (the birthplace of Emmerdale Farm) and, for those of you who enjoy shopping and exciting nightlife, Leeds and Manchester are only a 20 minute drive away.
Why not make a special occasion of your stay with us and order wine, champagne, chocolates or flowers to be provided in your room upon arrival or even reserve a table for a bar meal in the ‘oldest pub’ in Yorkshire ‘The Bridge Inn’ dating back to the 1300’s. These, or other ideas, can be arranged during the time of booking. Our aim is simply to do what we are able to do to make your stay with us as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.
