Guests will enjoy relaxing in the small garden area, and there are plenty of walks from the door. Head over the moors to discover the Bronte sister's legacy, or spend the day in Hebden Bridge itself, by the canal or perusing the shops and cafes. With the Worth Valley Railway (with steam trains) and the Eureka Museum in Halifax within easy reach, thisis a great cottage for your Yorkshire holiday.

From the moment we walked in the cottage you could tell it was absolutely spotless.. Given current times it was fantastic to know that everywhere was extremely clean and extra attention to details had been given .i.e hand gel was available in every room and bathroom, plenty of cleaning products etc. The extra lengths the owners went to was above and beyond to make our stay perfect, huge fruit bowl, milk tea and coffee etc was unexpected but very thoughtful and kind. My children adored being so close to the horses and were thrilled they got ride them too. Overall this is a wonderful cottage offering a relaxing break and we are already looking to book again. Thanks again to the owners, we loved it

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location..
Mrs Green, July 2020
We had the most perfect break at stables cottage it was just what we needed after lockdown.. The cottage was clean, warm and very homely the owners have thought of everything from the welcoming vase of fresh flowers, bowl of sweets, the tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits down to hand sanitizers in every room.
The beds were amazingly comfortable, just what’s needed after a days walking.
Honestly this cottage is perfect we are hoping to rebook for next year
Miss Benn, July 2020
We had a lovely, comfortable stay at the Stables.. Plenty of space, not far from town and a stroll to and from a lovely pub. Because we have family who live locally in Todmorden, we have already recommended it to other family members and we would book it again ourselves. Thank you!
Mrs Sacco, December 2019
Fantastic property with loads of extras.. Exceptional help from Andy. A wonderful stay and will definitely visit again. Thank you.
Mrs Eastall, December 2019
We had a lovely relaxing break in this beautiful, clean, cosy, comfortable, well equipped cottage.. We would highly recommend it and would definitely stay here again!
Stables Cottage was everything we could have hoped for, and more.. Extremely well furnished and fitted out with plenty of room for our party of five. It was a real bonus to have ensuite bathrooms for all of the bedrooms. The location is perfect, with lots of walking opportunities directly from the cottage and lots of interesting places to visit in the area, particularly Hebden Bridge and Haworth. We had three excellent meals at the Shepherd's Rest Inn only 10 minutes walk away. Andy and Chris were perfect, helpful hosts.
This was certainly one of the best holiday homes we have ever rented.
Stables Cottage is very comfortable, spacious, well furnished and equipped.. Everything has been done to a high standard. Mr Farnaby greeted us warmly and had provided some very welcome provisions to start our holiday. We arrived on 15/12/18 and were delighted that there were Christmas decorations around the hall and living area. Very warm and cosy.
We would not hesitate to revisit the cottage and would recommend it to all.
Thanks to you, Mr and Mrs Farnaby.
Very efficient booking service.. Description of cottage very accurate - great location.
We loved our stay in this cosy cottage.. It had everything we needed, and was a 10 minute walk into central Todmorden down several flights of steps through the rows of houses to the bottom of the hill. Walking to the train station we could then explore Calderdale by train.
The Shepherds rest pub is 10 minutes walk away up the hill, with great food.
Friendly hosts. We would return.
It was the perfect holiday with excellent accommodation.. Generous welcome pack provided, quality furniture with the added bonus of ensuite in all rooms and extra tv's. The grandchildren enjoyed their first horse riding lesson at the equestrian centre next door and the views are amazing with lovely walks. Although advertised as 3 bedrooms there are 4 available at a small extra cost. Lovely hosts and great holiday week for exploring.
Very pleasant owners.. Spacious, comfortable, well-heated cottage and SO MANY thoughtful extras! A very comfortable king size bed. Very clean throughout. It was an added bonus to find I could access WiFi. Would highly recommend. We hope to return.
Fantastic property.. Well furnished with excellent cooking equipment available. Would highly recommend.
Lovely cottage in beautiful setting..
A nice quiet retreat.. Very helpful and friendly owners the welcome pack was really useful and provided everything that you would need after a long journey. Just the ticket
Everything was fantastic just need wifi put in
Extremely satisfied with the cottage .. owners very welcoming.
Cottage kitted out with everything required plus the added extras of a welcoming pack of the initial essentials which were very much appreciated.
Mr O Reilly
A lovely location which was very peaceful and the accommodation was great, very safe for our children.
The owner was friendly and did not intrude despite living close by. Liked the situation of the cottage on a hillside above Todmorden so it was away from it all, but with easy access to a super local pub, and within easy driving distance of the reason for our holiday, walking the Burnley Way.
Comfortable excellent accommodation in a beautiful and convenient part of Yorkshire. Owners very helpful and we would not hesitate to return in the future and recommend to friends and family
This cottage actually has four bedrooms rather than the three that were advertised and they are all ensuite. This was a lovely surprise as I was staying with my son and three of his friends so the extra space was useful. The cottage is well equipped and lovely. The evening sun falls on the garden area and it is a lovely place for a barbecue or just to sit with a cup of tea. The neighbours, including the little Yorkshire terriers are lovely and friendly. It was a great place to stay and would recommend it to anyone with a family. Although it is in the middle of nowhere there is a little lane leading down to the town which only takes five minutes to walk.
A peaceful, relaxing, delightful cottage. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely return.
This was such a perfect cottage. Everything you could think of.
Andy and Chris (owners) couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, also Chris's dad - a lovely gentleman.
George and Mollie coming to see us each day made it feel like home as we were missing our dog and cats.
I wish I could move in for ever I felt so at home.
The cottage is a credit to them both. Will come again for sure.
Stables Cottage is a beautiful old barn that has been tastefully modernised whilst retaining lots of character. The accommodation is light, bright and airy and spacious. The open plan kitchen - lounge is a lovely comfortable room for relaxing ,with a wood burner for chilly evenings, the large kitchen area is very well equipped and a breakfast bar divides the two areas. There is a separate dining room too. One of the en -suite bedrooms (a single) is downstairs - good if anyone has a problem with stairs. Upstairs there are in fact three more ( not two more as advertised) bedrooms, all en suite. The master is a lovely room with a very nice bathroom (bath with shower attachment). There is a single room and a twin room both with good shower rooms. Apart from the master the bedrooms aren`t huge but they all have storage space, a T.V. and are warm and comfortable.
Outside there is plenty of parking space and two separate sitting out areas - one at the side of the cottage which is overlooked by the owners cottage and another more private area at the rear . The owners are very friendly, helpful and welcoming. They run an Equestrian Centre so there are horses passing by the cottage and the stables are very near but if you aren`t interested in horses and don`t want to use the facilities it really doesn`t matter.
Although there aren`t particularly good views from inside the cottage once outside the views in both directions are stunning. The property is set above the town of Todmorden and in fact it`s a 10 - 15 minute walk down to the town - it does take longer on the way back as it`s quite a steep path back up! There are plenty of other walks from the cottage too and the location is great as there are many interesting places to visit in this part of Yorkshire, and wherever you go you are surrounded by beautiful scenery.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Stables Cottage and would really recommend it for couples or for a family.
Everything had been done to make Stables Cottage a home from home. The cottage was immaculately clean and the owners were very helpful.
Well equipped self-catering accommodation with every bedroom en suite and a welcome food pack provided. Walks, pub and supermarket all within walking distance from property.
A comfortable warm cottage with plenty of room. Excellent walking from the door and in proximity to two good pubs.
Very well equipped cottage in good location for Hebden Bridge and also for Manchester.
It was a great place to stay; quiet and peaceful with fantastic countryside about. Great sized rooms, well equipped in every way. The welcome pack was greatly appreciated, can't say enough about how good the cottage was and how welcoming the owners were.
t the top of the hill in front of the equestrian centre where the cottages is located.
We have a 2 year old who was fascinated with rare breed sheep and all the very well kept horses.
The cottage is located in the hills above Todmorden and is ideally located for many of the places we wanted to visit. There is also a good pub within walking distance and plenty of others nearby.
Cottage is very well equipped and the large full fruit bowl and wood starter pack (for the log burner) along with some milk in the fridge were all very welcome additions.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage for a first class holiday.
Many thanks :)
The welcome basket was very much appreciated and the owners were very helpful and friendly. The cottage was very comfortable and set in a very beautiful location.
A great cottage in lovely country, all four of us had a great time, excellent place. We will come back again.
The cottage was perfect for our holiday. It was warm and comfortable and everything you could want was in the property on a home from home level. The welcome pack was great. Thank you for a great week.
Location excellent, owner was friendly, really nice cottage.
This is a beautifully appointed barn conversion which is well maintained by the on site owners. Unfortunately our weather was poor but this did not detract from a great holiday with friends.
It was a real bonus that all bedrooms were en suite.
We stayed @ Stables Cottage Hebden Bridge & all I can say they excelled themselves again. From the greeting of the owners plus all the advice on the area plus a great welcome pack on arrival & the house itself was perfect. There was also an added bonus of a wonderful Local just 15 Mins walk serving really good food & Ale plus interesting places to visit who could ask for more.Our american friend was also very impressed.So who could have asked for more.
The comfort and location of the cottage. The family on the farm were very friendly and helpful and unobtrusive.
Lovely cottage, with lots of extras that make it a real home from home stay.
This is a lovely cottage and the owners have thought of pretty much everything, the tea, coffee, milk and biscuits were very welcomed after a six hour car ride! Staying over October half term we thought it might be a bit on the cold side in Yorkshire however this cottage was lovely and warm. The kitchen was very well equipped, my 8 year old was very impressed with the pizza cutter!!
The owners are very friendly and it was good to be able to look around the stables and see the horses. Great walks a straight out of the door and a friendly local pub within a ten minute walk. Take a torch though as it can be a dark walk back!!
Overall a lovely clean, comfortable cottage which we hope to return to in the future.
We have stayed at quite a few excellent Sykes Cottages properties, and this one is probably the best. The exceedingly good Shepherds Rest just 10 minutes walk away, good beer and good food. All in all a great week was had by all.
The cottage was fantastic, in a great location, and fantastic value. If we ever venture back to this area of UK will be first place I would go.
The cottage was brilliant! It was in a great location, roughly half way between Leeds and Manchester for the wet days and in beautiful walking country for the sunny ones. The owners were very friendly as were the horses.
Probably one of the best equipped cottages we have stayed at for a long time. Great holiday
This was an excellent cottage which was very well equipped.
It was an excellent location for both the Pennine Way and also the town of Todmorden which was within walking distance although it was a steep climb back!
The Shepherds Rest pub was also within walking distance and this is a great pub with very good food.
This cottage is based in Todmorden rather than Hebden Bridge. Todmorden is a very pleasant town.
This is an excellent holiday let and the accommodation is very well presented and maintained. This was our second visit.
A very warm, comfortable and attractive cottage with a good wood burning fire. Excellent welcome goodies. Good walks from the door. Very welcoming owners.
This is the best cottage we have stayed in , so clean, so well laid out, so comfy and the views out of the hot tub fantastic, Hebden Bridge is very nice and a 20 minuet walk away
Good area. Very friendly people. Enjoyed the log fire.
Excellent and roomy accommodation in a really good location for touring the southern Pennines. It is a superb area for walking. The owners of the property were very friendly and helpful and we have no hesitation in recommending the property to friends and relatives. We are keen to return at some time in the future.
The cottage was warm and welcoming with some nice touches like basic food and fruit on arrival. Clean and excellent location.
Fabulous cottage in a wonderful location. Service very warm and friendly - made us feel very welcome. Tea, coffee, sugar, milk and a bowl of fruit was waiting for us on arrival - wonderful gesture, just what you need after a long journey. All four bedrooms were en-suite and the master bedroom was luxurious. Pub located fairly close and the local town wasn't too far away. Have already booked this cottage for our holiday next year.
Very enjoyable, lovely cottage. Good central base to other towns.
A well furnished and kitted house. A welcome pack and a bowl of fresh fruit on arrival. Four bedrooms each with en suite. Owners very welcoming and helpful. Our handicapped son enjoyed the horses and we enjoyed the easy access to the country side. Good meals in local pubs.
The property is ideally situated to relax and explore the area. If you like peace and quiet then this is the place to go!
This place is amazing. The cottage is beautiful and really tastefully decorated. We had a wonderful week there and would strongly recommend it to anyone. The owners of the cottage made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble
This was by far the best cottage we have ever stayed in. The family who run the farm are particularly nice, so all in all it was a great holiday. We also only had to walk a few steps for our riding lessons!
This was one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. Having the whole of Calderdale around us was spectacular! 4 bedrooms now and 4 en-suites. A welcome pack and a large bowl of fresh fruit were much appreciated. Wonderful weather meant we had a perfect time. If you want excellent value for money then this is the place.
Quiet, relaxing location.
made to feel very welcome by andy nothing too much trouble handy fr Hebden and other locations pub two minutes away and exc food log burner in house welcome bonus
great cottage lovely furnishings and surroundings. we would recommend it.
Stables Cottage is in a lovely area. The owners were very welcoming, lots of little extras like welcome food pack and toiletries. A great log fire. We would go again!
We were happy with the overall spaciousness of the cottage. We were provided with tea, coffee, sugar and some fruit which was a very nice touch. The location was lovely, with beautiful scenery and was quiet and peaceful. The cottage was within a short distance of the town of Todmorden, which was full of shops and restaurants. Another big plus was the close proximity of The Shepherd's Rest restaurant which had reasonable prices, great food, and fine service.
Very nice cottage; clean and comfy, very peaceful. Horses wonderful. Owners very helpful too. Welcome pack very helpful too! Local pub was close and nice with great food. Wonderful holiday thank you.
The cottage was lovely, very peaceful which was exactly what we were looking for. We are looking at going again, many thanks.
This cottage is really exceptional, so much space! All rooms have en suite bathrooms, the master bedroom is beautifully romantic and luxurious. The standard of decoration is very high, towels, toilet rolls and a lovely welcome pack were provided. I loved the position in the heart of an equestrian centre and farm - the family and staff were very friendly as were the horses and other assorted animals!
everything was perfect very enjoyable owners very friendly and helpful
The cottage was very well equipped, clean and well maintained. We found the owners to be very friendly and helpful.
We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the fact that there was a lovely local country pub five minutes walk around the corner!
Comfortable and tv in all rooms, friendly owners, location and facilities. The best cottage we have hired from you.
4 en-suite bedrooms and the cottage had all mod cons required. Nicely decorated and liked the fact the lounge and kitchen were open plan.
The equestrian centre, run by the cottage owners gave an excellent riding lesson to our 9 and 4 year olds.
Lovely welcome pack with more than just the basics provided on our arrival. Wonderful and peaceful location.
The cottage was so warm, cosy and quiet, in spectacular scenery. Excellent walking from the door. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in.
The cottage provided a really comfortable base and turned out to be in a great location - within walking distance of Todmorden and a pub, yet with the feeling of being miles from anywhere.
