If you're looking for a relaxing short stay or a base for more energetic activities - we are perfect for you. Set in Cragg Vale, an area of outstanding natural beauty near Hebden Bridge, our old stone building which previously housed tractors and forestry equipment, has been transformed into three quality holiday cottages. The elevated position in a steep-sided wooded valley affords the cottages with fabulous moor and woodland views. Although ""Cragg"" as it is known locally, is secluded and peaceful, it is also a central location for visiting Yorkshire and Lancashire with road and direct rail links to Leeds and Manchester nearby. 300yds from the Calderdale Way and with numerous local walks, the cottages are ideal for people looking to explore the local countryside. With direct access onto the longest continuous incline in England, cyclists can relish the challenge of riding this difficult route up onto the heather clad moors. Mountain bikers have their own set of demanding routes and this area is considered ""A Nexus for mountain bikers"" (Everyday Cycling Magazine).The local moorland golf course offers some majestic views. The local bus ""The Cragg Flyer"" stops just outside the cottages for journeys to Mytholmroyd (2miles), Hebden Bridge (4miles) or just down the road to a true local pub 'The Robin Hood'. The Hinchliffe Arms country restaurant and bar is also within walking distance. We are Walker, Cyclist and Pet friendly.

The Sowerby Bridge Rushbearing Festival brings you a packed weekend of Rush-related tradition and tomfoolery!
The Rushbearing Festival is the only one of its kind in Yorkshire. Over the course of the weekend, the festival sees the progress of the Rushbearing procession around seven towns and villages, visiting many churches and local hostelries along the way. the focal point of the procession is the sixteen feet high, two-wheeled handsomely decorated and thatched rushcart.
A team of young ladies take turns to ride on top of the cart as it is pulled by sixty local men dressed in Panama hats, white shirts, black trousers and clogs. Accompanying them are a group of supporters in Edwardian dress along with some of the region's finest musicians and Morris dancing teams to provide entertainment for the crowds.
By the nature of this event timings over the weekend may vary slightly!
For full route details for the Rushcart and approximate timings, please visit the Rushbearing website
