Description

Todmorden 2 miles.
A first class, detached cottage set high on the moorland, next to the owner's home, near the South Pennines village of Walsden, close to the market town of Todmorden. Lovingly restored, this cottage is full of character, seamlessly combining its original features including exposed stonework and old beams with contemporary fixtures and fittings. Situated in a beautiful area, this holiday home is the perfect base for friends and families to explore the South Pennines and the surrounding fells and valleys of the Brontë Moors. Upstairs offers a stylish, king-size double bedroom with single sofa bed, and picturesque views of the wild meadows and moorland. There is also another king-size double room and a twin room, modern family bathroom and a shower room. Prepare mouth-watering, home-cooked meals in the shaker-style kitchen and gather around the dining table to plan your adventures from this cottage near Todmorden. After a day walking across the glorious South Pennine Moors, or after spending time visiting some of the scenes where the drama series Happy Valley was filmed, retire to the spacious sitting room, featuring lovely wooden flooring, comfy seating, and a second dining area. Curl up by the cosy woodburning stove and catch up on some reading, the perfect way to escape the cold on winter nights. Outside, this cottage overlooks the owner's delightful, mature gardens; sit out on the patio and enjoy alfresco dining as you take in the stunning views. Take the dogs for their morning walks across the adjoining meadow, or hop on your bike and retrace the route the 2014 Tour de France took as they raced through the spectacular South Pennines countryside. The moorland around the cottage hosts an abundance of wildlife, a real birdwatchers dream. Explore the many walking routes criss-crossed across the Brontë Moors, including the nearby Pennine Way, and the Mary Towneley Loop, forming part of the Pennine Bridleway. The town of Todmorden hosts a market five days a week, and boasts a delightful selection of shops, pubs and cafés, often serving food locally produced in and around this Incredible Edible town. Hebden Bridge is an easy drive away with its upbeat nightlife, fabulous curiosity shops, market held five days a week and the Hebden Bridge Picture House Cinema, serving tea and scones during the intervals! Visit the village of Heptonstall, with its two historic pubs, or explore the home of the Brontë sisters in nearby Haworth, while the bustling town of Skipton is also an easy drive away, which is just waiting to be discovered. This cottage is an excellent base for a family break, escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life and exploring the South Pennine Moors, at any time of year.
Todmorden is a small market town in Calderdale, close to Hebden Bridge. Todmorden offers shops, pubs and cafes, and is surrounded by countryside widely enjoyed for its stunning scenery, and plentiful walking and cycling trails. A great Yorkshire base for enjoying this part of the county.

‘We stayed at this lovely cottage last weekend. The pictures on the web do not do it justice it really is amazing. Seven of us stayed and a lot more with guests coming and going over the weekend. There was plenty of room for everyone. The wood burner helped make it a magical stay for all of us. The bedrooms were an excellent size and has three separate toilets including two large bathrooms. We would have happily given five stars if it wasn’t for a couple of points: The main shower was rubbish with no pressure, although the shower over the bath was good. The cottage was clean but it desperately needs a deep clean with the floors very dirty and the mop head should be binned. It is so close to being perfect and even though not a five star rating very reasonably priced and worth every penny.’

‘Stayed here as a family group for a long weekend. This cottage has been restored to a high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It has all the mod cons and is well equipped with everything that you may need. We didn’t have long enough here so we are hoping to return and further explore the area’

‘We booked for Christmas 2018, and the cottage is comfortable and well stocked. The kitchen is good with most of the equipment you are likely to need - although you might need some extra pans if you are doing a big meal. Beds are comfortable. Main room is nice and warm once the fire gets going. The owners are friendly, and their dog is lovely. There is lots of good walking nearby. It is up a steep access road, so if any of your party have limited mobility, be aware they might not be able to get about without a vehicle. Overall, an excellent break in a lovely cottage.’

‘We feel very lucky to have found such a wonderful cottage to stay in. Having spent a couple of years living in Todmorden a while back, I wanted to show the sights to my husband, 3 year old and in-laws. Finding a place to sleep 7 in the Hebden Bridge was surprisingly hard, but then we found Salter Rake Gate cottage and weren't disappointed. Up a rather steep hill we found a beautifully refurbished house equipped with everything we could possibly need. The location was great too, beautiful rural views from every window yet easy to reach local amenities in Todmorden and Littleborough. Our son adores trains so we took advantage of the railway to take trips to Halifax and Bradford as well as a ride on the Worth Valley Railway. We would highly recommend Eureka and the Bradford media museum for kids on a rainy day. The in laws enjoyed walks along the many footpaths accessible from the house, and the hubby even managed a bit of mountain biking at Lee Valley Quarry. Also recommended is a visit to Grandma Pollards chippy opposite Walsden station. Fantastic fish a day chips in a real traditional restaurant with a bus to eat your chips on if you can find space! They also do enormous and delicious fruit pies and vanilla slices if your stomach can take it. We would happily stay in this beautiful cottage again and would love to take advantage of the great location for walks along the Pennine Way and beyond in the future.’

‘The cottage is located in a perfect location for those wanting peace and quiet. The cottage was a superb size for our party of 5 along with our dog. The layout and the standard of fittings in the cottage were excellent and it was much bigger than we had expected. Overall if you're looking for somewhere peaceful I'd definitely recommend this cottage.’

‘As a family of 5, with a big, nervous dog who loves to walk, we chose this cottage as it seemed to offer a perfect location away from the town and with access straight onto the hills above. We were delighted when we got here, via a steep road, as it was lovely and secluded with just a handful of houses surrounding it. The location was perfect also for day trips out to wonderful places such as Hebden Bridge, Hollingsworth Lake, Heptonstall and further afield to Manchester. I would particularly recommend a walk up to Gaddings dam which was a lovely walk for the whole family to enjoy on a sunny day. We were also impressed with the cottage itself, which was much bigger than we had expected. The layout was just perfect for our family and the quality of fittings was to a very good standard. We loved the hard flooring downstairs which was very useful for our Labrador and also the open plan layout. The addition of a large shower room and bathroom as well as a downstairs toilet was also appreciated, since we had two older teenagers with us. I would therefore recommend this cottage and I would definitely return here.’

‘Beautiful house with lovely views and thoughtfully equipped. Stayed for a few days to celebrate our wedding anniversary...wonderful spot and we enjoyed some great walking from the cottage. Not really any need to get the car out as there are some lovely walks from the house and the railway at Walsden is a 20 minute walk along the canal...from there regular trains to Todmorden, Hebden bridge...and further. The house is very comfortable and the wood burner make it cosy in the evenings...the owners have provided some really detailed information both about using the house, iinteresting information on how it was restored and a wealth of maps and walks. Would definitely go back Thank you Penny & Nigel.’

‘Salter Rake Gate Cottage was beautiful, warm and inviting in every way. The design of the building, the decor and soft furnishings were tasteful, luxurious yet practical. The sofas and beds were all comfortable. We had plenty of space in the kitchen and round the dining table for convivial living. It was cosy with the wood burning stove and the views were dramatic. It's location was perfect for walking, cafes and shops. It was peaceful and instilled a lovely sense of calm. We didn't want to leave!’

‘Everything was as promised in the brochure - a superbly and recently refurbished cottage with all mod cons including the cosy wood stove and the means to light it and keep it active. It was great huddling down in the warmth with a good book whilst the 100mph winds and torrential rain attacked the cottage with all the ferocity of a hurricane. Great! Nothing was missing in the household equipment and the instruction manuals in the cottage suggesting walks and places of interest were really comprehensive and well thought through. Would recommend the place to anyone.’

‘We had seven of us plus our dog staying at this lovely cottage for my mother's 70th birthday. The downstairs rooms are spacious and comfortable, and there was plenty of room for all of us upstairs - a bonus to have two large bathrooms upstairs as well as a downstairs loo!. Kitchen is well-kitted out, which was great as we ate at home most nights. The cottage was impressively clean and the heating was most effective - never cold enough for us to light the stove! Fantastic to be able to walk up onto the hills directly from the house. Also good for young boys and not-so-young dog to have the meadow just to the back of the house. Lots to do in the area - especially walking - we will need to return several times to cover what we've missed! Be prepared for steep drive up from main road and the turning is easy to miss on your first arrival. Parking a bit tricky for more than one car - up a steep drive behind the house, but manageable. Penny and Nigel both very friendly and helpful.’

‘Stayed at this cottage with my sisters and daughter for a short family break. The cottage is located high up and has superb views of the open countryside around. The property has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. There are 3 good size bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a downstairs toilet so plenty of room for 6-7 people. There is also a large kitchen which is fully equipped with everything you need and a large lounge and dining area. The woodburning stove was very cosy although there is central heating throughout. Lots of lovely walks to do close to the cottage. Would highly recommend to a family or friends wishing a peaceful and relaxing stay.’
