Dyer's Cottage Yorkshire is a 17th century traditional stone cottage, full of character features, recently renovated to a high standard, to provide singles, couples, 3 friends or small families with a warm, inviting and extremely comfortable stay in the Wainhouse Heritage Area near Halifax in Calderdale. * NO HOLIDAYS allowed after Nov 5 2020 until further notice but essential workers travelling away from home for BUSINESS locally, with evidence, are allowed to stay. Also other special circumstances. See blue photo. DO NOT BOOK UNLESS YOU HAVE MESSAGED THE OWNER. BYO bedding, linen and towels if you prefer. • Beautifully restored • Extremely well appointed • Sunny private enclosed garden • Car not required • Close to all amenities • Bath and shower • Good WiFi and desk • Superking or 2 twin beds in bedroom • Sofabed • Tall people welcome This cottage is extremely unusual in that it has a very long documented history of occupants since 1777 when the owners 3x gt grandfather was born here and succeeding generations of his family have continued to live there whilst working in the nearby dyeworks (long gone except for the 77m chimney, now the tallest folly in the world called Wainhouse Tower). It oozes character with ceiling beams, an inglenook fireplace with a gas fired stove, restored pine doors and exposed stonework. The mullioned window in the kitchen dates from 1650 when it was part of a farmhouse. Unusually for a cottage, it has spacious rooms and high ceilings but please be aware that the stairs are steep. The sunny garden has views across the valley. The fully equipped kitchen features an electric oven and ceramic hob, a small dishwasher, a fridge with small freezer, a microwave and a Dolce Gusto coffee maker. A washer/dryer is hidden in a modern cupboard in the contemporary upstairs bathroom with a white suite and grey porcelain tiles. The long shower bath widens at one end and has an Aqualisa digital rain shower as well as a hand shower attachment. The gas central heating boiler is inside a cupboard. We provide an illuminated mirror, shaver socket, and complimentary bath and shower products. There is a landing area with a desk and good Wifi is available throughout the cottage. The sunny bedroom has a lovely view, a Victorian feature fireplace, in built storage and a magnificent superking ( 2m long, 1.8m wide) Hypnos bed. This can be configured as 2 long single beds by prior arrangement. There is also space for a child to sleep in a Z bed or travel cot which can also be provided along with a bath seat, changing mat and toys. Relax in the living room with its woodblock flooring, antique dining table, and comfortable seating including a chair with local place names. The leather sofa extends into a proper sprung bed for an additional guest. The paintings and wall decorations all have a local theme and we have a SMART tv with freeview channels, a DVD player, a little library of books, and games. We provide high quality bed linen and towels, mattress protector, duvet and pillow protectors. Calderdale is now famous as a filming destination and our heritage locality has featured in 'Last Tango in Halifax', 'Happy Valley' and 'Gentleman Jack'. Walk and cycle the many miles of footpaths/cycleways locally such as the Calder Valley Greenway. Stay here to work locally, visit family and friends, explore nature and walk the canal towpaths. The Calder and Hebble Navigation and the Rochdale Canal are a short walk from the cottage. Explore the South Pennines and Yorkshire Dales NP, visit Haworth/ Bronte Country or historic York. Industrial archaeology abounds here and converted mills now host shops, bars, restaurants, exhibitions, and art galleries. Don't forget to visit the fabulous Piece Hall in Halifax where the hand loom weavers used to sell their pieces of cloth. This magnificent Grade11 listed building has undergone a massive renovation and is a popular outdoor music venue. Located in the Pye Nest area of Halifax, under the shadow of the famous Wainhouse Tower, the cottage is perfectly located. A bus passes the gate and both Sowerby Bridge and Halifax stations are easily accessible. Shopping, pubs and restaurants are within a short walk and on street parking is available. An award winning CAMRA pub offers lovely home cooked Yorkshire fare and a very friendly welcome to our guests.

About the neighbourhood
The area on this part of the West Yorkshire/Lancashire border has been dramatically portrayed recently in TV series such as Last Tango in HalifaxHappy Valley It is a mixture of industrial architecture, quiet villages, often with traditional pubs offering local beer, and extensive valley and moorland scenery. History abounds, whether it be of the buildings connected with the Industrial Revolution or old churches, abbeys and stately homes to visit. The immediate area around Dyer's Cottage was rural until the latter part of the 19th century with most people working as farmers or in the local dyeworks. The outward expansion of Halifax led to further growth in the area but most properties are over 100 years old and this area is regarded as one of the most desirable in which to live. Public tra...
Getting around
Public transport is excellent with an hourly bus during the day actually passing the gate but many more busses pass within 250m of the cottage so you can get directly to Halifax, Sowerby Bridge, Hebden Bridge, Rochdale, Burnley and beyond if you change buses at these places. The train stations at Sowerby Bridge 1 mile and Halifax 2 miles allow easy travel to Leeds, Bradford, Manchester, York, Blackpool, Scarborough and more. Walking and cycling are also ways of exploring the area.
