Old Town Hall Cottage is just 1 mile from Hebden Bridge, the town which has been recognised nationally for its originality and character. According to a survey by the New Economics Foundation, it is the town with "the most varied and distinct high street in Britain". There are individual shops, cosmopolitan cafe bars & excellent restaurants.
A real Yorkshire welcome awaits you at our comfortable, 400 year old country cottage in the picturesque village of Old Town. The English Tourist Board have consistently awarded the cottage their 4 star rating and we are proud to announce that we have also held their Gold Award for the last four years which recognises the high quality of accomodation and outstanding customer service.
All bed linen, towels and services are included in the cost of your stay, together with a welcome food pack, fresh flowers, fruit and complimentary toiletries (welcome pack includes milk, bread, butter, tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits & juice).
We provide free wi-fi and a top quality Klipsch i-pod/phone docking station.
A travel cot and highchair are available on request at no extra charge.
We are happy to accept "well behaved" pets by prior arrangement.
The cottage is ideally situated for walking in the beautiful South Pennines, or equally for visiting the many local attractions. Skipton, the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales is a 40 minute drive, the cities of Leeds & Manchester are easily accessible by rail and even the historic city of York makes for an excellent day trip.
