    Belle Vue (Beautiful View) Barn is a barn conversion, dating back to the 1800s which has been restored into a cosy holiday home, with lots of character retaining the original dry stone walls and beams. Want to go walking, cycling, mountain biking or horse riding in the area? You've come to the right place! We have lots of routes for all ages and abilities, from a quiet stroll along the canal towpath, to a bike ride that will test your endurance and provide a few white knuckle moments. The Pennines are wild and wonderful, a land of steep-sided valleys, heather-covered moorland, canals, reservoirs and packhorse trails. The people who live here describe it as 'spectacular', 'inspiring', 'breathtaking' and 'dramatic.' It's a place where you'll find intense local pride - people who are passionate about the area and want to share what they know. Cyclists and mountain bikers are spoiled for choice too: two national cycle routes come our way, whilst there's ample opportunity for off-road adventure on the Pennine moorland bridleways. Belle Vue Barn offers a fantastic opportunity to bring your own horse and enjoy some of the routes once trodden by packhorse trains, carrying cloth across the Pennine moors. The first long-distance trail designed for riders, the Pennine Bridleway National Trail is becoming one of the most well-known horse riding trails in the UK. Threading through the Pennine hills, it combines historic packhorse routes with specially created paths. The Pennine Bridleway and the Mary Townley Loop give the opportunity for long distance rides for the fitter horse and rider. We have three E.V. (Electric Vehicle) charge points installed at Belle Vue Barn; two Tesla vehicle charge points and one Universal. They are all 7KW points and classed as 'fast' charge points by Tesla. The chargers will charge all EVs, type 1 and type 2 and useage is free to customers renting Belle Vue Barn.

    On Saturday September 14th between Noon and 4pm you have a rare opportunity to see a memorial to Ann Walker, lover of Anne ‘Gentleman Jack’ Lister, which has been locked within Lightcliffe Tower at Lightcliffe Cemetery near Halifax since 1974. There will be guides on hand to direct visitors to the most interesting and important graves connected with the Walker family. Ann Walker died at Cliffe Hill in 1854 and was buried under the pulpit at Old St Matthew’s church, Lightcliffe, Halifax. When the church was demolished in 1974, the charity Friends of Friendless Churches rescued the monuments and memorials and kept them safe within the residual tower, which is now in the charity’s care. Amongst the monuments is the Gothic style plaque remembering Ann Walker. As a part of the Heritage Open Days festival this September, the Friends of Friendless Churches are re-opening the base of the tower to allow visitors to view and pay their respects at Ann’s memorial. This is a free event, but donations towards the upkeep of the tower are gratefully received. There is no need to book.
