Located in a quiet backwater amongst the higgledy-piggledy courtyards and cobbled streets of the historic Pennine conservation village of old Heptonstall, near to Hebden Bridge in the South Pennines, Chapel Fold is a picturesque early Grade II listed two-bedroomed country cottage. From the moment you arrive in this tranquil environment you will be able to unwind as you take in the traffic-free environment and wonderful panoramic views.
This cosy cottage has been renovated recently, retaining many original features including an open stone fireplace (complete with cast-iron French multi-fuel “Godin”), mullioned windows and original oak beams, and is furnished to accommodate up to four people comfortably for those special self-catering holidays.
Surrounded by miles of unspoilt countryside, Heptonstall village is a real “find” and provides a daily-opening Post Office / General Store and two pubs providing excellent traditional home-cooked pub food and refreshment; all within walking distance. Nearby Hebden Bridge, in its riverside and canal-side location, provides a small-scale supermarket and more dining and entertainment opportunities with a hint of the “hippy” generation: friendly and quaint for those interested in an out-of-the ordinary retail experience.
The centrally-heated cottage has a fully-fitted Kitchen with electric oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher.
The Lounge/Dining Room is cosy and full of character and is equipped to a high standard including a chocolate leather two-seater Settee; Armchairs; Antique Dining Table & Four Chairs; DVD/CD player; selection of books, DVDs and CDs; rugs and throws; views to the rear through stone-mullion windows over the valley.
Large Principal Bedroom with solid pine Double Bed, Bedside Cabinets and Lamps, quality coordinated bed linen, ample storage and views to the rear through stone-mullion windows over the valley.
Second Bedroom with Double Bed, etc.
The Bathroom provides a bath, shower, WC and hand basin.
A Washing Machine / Dryer is available in the vaulted cellar, together with ample storage space for bikes, etc.
Heptonstall was developed in a gentler, more people-friendly age: for people rather than cars. Consequently, although there is easy access to the property for unloading luggage and shopping, the residents park in the village car park just below our property which is visible from the Lounge, Principal Bedroom and Patio.
There is a small but adequate sunny Patio Area overlooking the valley, complete with outdoor furniture.
Included in your stay:
Bed Linen and Towels.
Gas, electricity &, central heating.
Tourist information and help in planning your holiday including restaurant recommendations.
