Gaze up at the stars from the private hot tub*. Located in the picturesque hamlet of Soyland, on the hills above Ripponden, Shaw Edge Barn is perfect for an escape to the countryside for walking, cycling, relaxation and site seeing.

The barn has far reaching, uninterrupted views over the valley recently made famous by the tv series Happy Valley and Last Tango in Halifax

Perfect location for Manchester and Leeds, both easily reached by taxi or train.

* additional charge for hot tub

The space
We love to welcome all guests to our newly converted stone, detached three-bedroom first floor barn with a spacious open plan living area. The barn can sleep up to 4 adults and 2 children, or 2 adults and up to 4 children. (Other number groupings need to make an initial request as we do not allow parties)

We are situated in the heart of Soyland, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with stunning scenery and within easy access of both the Pennine and the Calderdale Way.

The location makes the barn a perfect choice for those visiting the NEM in Manchester or the First Direct Arena as both are easily reached by taxi or train.

Shaw Edge Barn is a new conversion with spacious lounge, fully equipped kitchen, 2 double bedrooms, one bedroom with bunk beds, bathroom with bath and shower and utility room, all furnished to a high standard. It has its own thermostatically controlled central heating to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Cotton bed linen and fresh towels are provided and there is also a travel cot and high chair. The utility space includes a washer dryer, freezer and a monks bench for shoe removal and storage.

Guests can wake up to see sheep and lambs in the fields, and have a fresh daily supply of free range eggs from our own chickens.

Patio doors from the main living space open up onto the barbecue and outdoor seated area with barbecue and fire pit.

If you are short on time, and you'd like to do an online grocery shop, we will be more than happy to receive and unpack it for you. Please do let us know if this would be of interest.

There is a small additional charge of £25 per day for the hot tub, except for those guests staying for a full week where this charge is £75 for the full week. If it's a special occasion, our Bubbles and Bouquet deal, can be purchased at extra charge, please ask for details or see the hot tub packages.

We are happy to decorate the barn for surprise birthdays, anniversaries etc and can purchase occasion cakes for you in advance of your stay. Please ask for details.

Where you’ll be

Ripponden, England, United Kingdom

Soyland is a small hamlet on the hills above the pretty village of Ripponden. It has numerous recommended restaurants, take aways, and public houses.
Whilst a rural area, it is conveniently situated between Leeds and Manchester and just ten to fifteen minutes from the M62 motorway.

There are two local public houses within walking distance which offer a very high class of food and entertainment on certain evenings.

We are close to the town of Hebden Bridge, which is only 8 miles away by car or easily walked or cycled along the canal tow path. Here, you can take a canal barge trip or shop in the lovely quaint stores, or browse the antique shops.

Other local places of interest include:
Hollingsworth Lake - where you can take a boat ride or partake in water sports, or take the 2.2 mile round the lake walk - (8.8 miles)
Heptonstall- made famous by the historic coiners -(9.5miles)
Halifax - with its famous Piece Hall, Shibden Park and Gibbett - (6.2 miles)
Haworth- made famous by the Bronte Sisters (13.5 miles)
Holmfirth-Last of the Summer Wine Country - (13.5 miles)
York - the famous walled city - (50 miles)
Lots of tourist information can be found in the information binder found on the reception desk.

Halifax is the nearest town which houses a cinema, bowling alley, swimming pool, sports centre, shops, library, the Civic Theatre, The Halifax Playhouse and the recently refurbished Piece Hall.

In early September the area hosts the Rush Bearing Festival and the Norland Scarecrow Hunt - information on these can be found in the information folder or the websites.
