Ted Hughes lived here until the age of seven, with his brother and sister. Before his death in 1998, he said "My first seven years shaped everything". Camping trips with his elder brother in the rolling moors and surrounding countryside are said to have significantly influenced his poetry, making this the ideal home for budding writers or Hughes' fans to draw inspiration from the area. Beautifully furnished by an interior designer, the house has been fully renovated to incorporate a beautiful bathroom and en-suite, making it perfect for couples to share. The owner has thoughfully provided a desk and wireless broadband access in Ted's former second floor bedroom - the perfect spot to return to after exploring the area. Mytholmroyd is situated just a mile from the picturesque Hebden Bridge with bustling independent shops, quaint tea rooms, art galleries, pubs and a small cinema. The small cellar is suitable for the storage of bikes, boots etc. and one dog is welcome.

Come and enjoy the hustle, bustle and traditional splendour of a thriving retail market with a warm and friendly atmosphere. The impressive and historic Halifax Borough Market was built between 1891 and 1896 and was officially opened by the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George V and Queen Mary). As a first time visitor to this award-winning market, you could be forgiven for thinking that you had stumbled on to the set of a period TV drama. Decor and atmosphere combine to create a shopping experience that just can't be matched by mundane and soulless out-of-town supermarkets. Alongside the outstanding traditional family butchers and fruit and vegetable stalls which have passed down through generations, are the new stall holders tempting our taste buds with a bounty of exotic produce from the continent. Nor will the markets's fishmongers disappoint. You can treat your inner child with toffees, fudge, boiled sweets, cakes and brandy snaps. Sandwiches, pies, olives and chorizo can be found alongside haberdashers, vibrant flower shops, perfumers, leather goods, books, underwear, CDs, DVDs, hardware, fancy dress and more! With several cafes and coffee shops where you can stop for cuppa and a butty (go on, have cake too) you can easily refuel to carry on shopping. From the exotic to the native, extravagant to inexpensive, the quality of produce on offer remains unsurpassed. The traditional splendour of Halifax Borough Market offers a real destination shopping experience. Open Monday to Saturday 9am - 5pm.
