Stag Cottage Holiday Home


Stag Cottage (built c.1580) is a tiny, beautiful and historic Grade II Listed building hidden away in the ancient Pennine village of Heptonstall.

Heptonstall is a beautiful hill top village situated in the heart of Calderdale, West Yorkshire, some 500 feet above the popular and bustling town of Hebden Bridge. The village has 2 pubs, a cafe, a village post office and a small museum.

The cottage sleeps 3 adults (1 kingsize, 1 single) and there is also a fold up cot for infants. Gas central heating. Fully fitted kitchen with gas stove. Bicycle storage in dungeon (19C village lock up in basement of cottage). Free parking within 50 yards of the cottage. A regular bus service runs between Heptonstall and Hebden Bridge. Train station at Hebden Bridge.

Stag cottage oozes charm and retains many original features, including stone mullioned windows, arched lintels, wooden beams and a king post truss with wattle and daub infill. A 4ft 6" high beam separates the kitchen from the living area.

The surrounding countryside is breathtaking, ideal for walking and cycling, including the nearby National Trust owned Hardcastle Crags. There are literary links to both the Bronte family in nearby Haworth and to Ted Hughes and his wife Sylvia Plath, who is buried in the village church yard. The unique and popular town of Hebden Bridge is just a short walk down the hill, offering dozens of independent shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes.
