  The Detail...

Dyer's Cottage is a 17th Century cottage, once part of a bigger farmhouse, and was renovated in 2014 and has been beautifully restored. It is modern and luxurious yet retains all of its old character and charm.

Step through the stone archway onto the parquet floor and admire the cosy, characterful interior. The homely sitting/dining room has a comfy sofa which invites you to sink in and relax in front of the Inglenook fireplace and gas fired burner.

The fully equipped kitchen is fitted against an exposed stone wall and boasts other original features including the mullioned windows. A roof light fitted into the high ceiling ensures the room is flooded with natural light. The south facing front garden offers guests a lovely little spot for morning coffee or an after-dinner drink.

Up the stairs to the first floor landing and there is a workspace with a desk and chair, great for catching up on emails or any bits of work which need looking at. Here, guests will also find space for a Z bed or a travel cot. The workspace leads through into the master bedroom, a bright room with large windows offering spectacular views to Norland over the Calder Valley. The super-king bed, with Hypnos mattress, can be separated into two single beds and offers guests a comfortable sleep between crisp linens.

A large contemporary and luxurious bathroom services the house. It has a big, deep bath and Aqualisa digital overhead shower.

Nestled in the beautiful West Riding of Yorkshire, historic Halifax is full of the industrial and heritage architecture which exemplify its former role as one of England's most important manufacturing towns. Dyer's Cottage sits in the centre offering great access to all the town has to offer.

Recently, the life of one of Halifax's most famous inhabitants, Anne Lister ('Gentleman Jack'), has put the town on the map and her home at Shibden Hall is just four miles away. Visitors should watch out for dedicated Anne Lister weekends which follow her footsteps through the town. Meanwhile Shibden Hall is regularly open to the public.

A visit to Halifax wouldn't be complete without a trip up the Wainhouse Tower, the 'tower of spite'. This 19th century folly is the tallest in the world and is open to the public on summer Bank Holidays, when you can take in magnificent views across Calderdale and beyond the South Pennines. Foodies will enjoy lots of the great places for eats and drinks in the area. Favourites include The Wainhouse Tavern, which is just 30m from your door as well as the Gimbals Restaurant at Sowerby Bridge, The Moorcock Inn at Norland, and The Maypole Inn at Warley.

Howard Mark says...
"Beautiful property. Just like the photos. Clean, fresh and tasteful. The garden is south facing and enjoys the sun all day long. The bathroom is modern and bright. Fully stocked kitchen. Very comfy bed. Living flame fire in the lounge which was so cosy in the evening. Lovely neighbourhood and minutes from the Piece Hall and a short drive to Hebden Bridge. Tesco just up the road. Jane the owner was very friendly and easy to deal with. She even left treats for our dog. Had a wonderful stay. Would love to return."
