The B&B's entrance is found down a short flight of steps on Garnett Street.
I have been welcoming guests from all over the world for about 10 years and I love it! My home is a characterful and spacious grade 2 listed apartment overlooking Market Street. Situated in the heart of the town, nowhere is more than a 5 minute walk away.
Hebden Bridge is located in the Pennines and is the perfect base for experiencing the surrounding countryside and Bronte country.
The ancient village of Heptonstall is within walking distance as is Hardcastle Crags, a stunning woodland and riverside walk.
Haworth, home of the Brontes and Halifax, home of Anne Lister are both within easy reach by car or public transport. Manchester and Leeds are easily reached by train or car.
During the 60s and 70s the town was populated by a mixture of artists, musicians, writers, alternative practitioners and other 'hippies'. This influx was crucial to the revival of the town which had fallen on hard times. Their influence continues to this day and Hebden is known for it's artists and creative community.

Please Note: At the moment I am offering just one room.
This is a beautiful room overlooking Market Street, the best shopping street in Hebden.
The room has a double bed and a very comfortable double sofa-bed which provides for twin or triple occupancy.
There is a TV & DVD player with lots of DVDs to pick from, tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer and dressing gowns.
You'll find a bath and big shower.
There is also a basket which has lots of essentials like toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant etc. in case you forget anything.
The perfect place to wash off the mud after your trek!
The bedroom and the bathroom are just next to each other and are for sole use of the guests.
Breakfast is served in the kitchen at an agreed time. You'll be able to pre-order your choice on arrival.
There is always toast, cereal, friut & yougurt and the cooked selection is English, veggie or scrambled egg and smoked salmon.
If you would like something else I'll do my best!
For walkers I am happy to provide a take-out breakfast.
If you are visiting for work or a course and prefer to forego breakfast or have a simplified one I will alter the price.
Many of my guests are walkers, often tackling the Pennine Way, I am happy to help with 'pick-ups' and 'drop-offs' if you find the last mile or so just too much!
You are welcome to use my laundry facilities and I keep a stock of newspapers for stuffing wet boots.
Many of the baggage transport companies call regularly to the house.
I am perfectly located for stocking up on snacks or plasters!

A lovely warm welcome, and 2 very friendly cats, made our short stay like a home from home. Beautiful rooms. Had to leave early, so missed out on the breakfast, but we were given a discount, and the offer to help ourselves to toast etc.
