I will be on the ground floor most of the time, separated from your space by the kitchen door, I'll only come up to first floor to use the shower when you are out (or to go to bed) and can sleep on ground floor and use the back door of house if we need to keep completely separate, giving you the top two floors and front door. I am triple vaccinated and will undertake a lateral flow test before you come.
As of Jan 2nd 2022, I have been approved as a dog-fosterer, so there may be a dog in residence - it will be kept behind a closed door on the ground floor at all times.

Where you’ll be

Hebden Bridge, England, United Kingdom

This is a friendly street in a friendly town, we are open minded, and relaxed, full of creative alternatives, Hebden Bridge was voted winner in Small Market Towns category of the Great British High Street awards (2016) and the fourth funkiest town in the world (2005) by British Airways*
The nearby National Trust woodland, Hardcastle Crags, contains many beautiful walking routes, a historic old mill, museum and cafe. On sunny days the town throngs with walkers, runners, cyclists, and buskers. Local tourists come to browse in its independent shops from traditional butchers and bakers to fair-trade goods and organic foods, bicycle and camping/outdoors shops, and small shops devoted to an eclectic range of vintage and handmade items. These all had to recover from devastating boxing day floods in 2016 and are now recovering from the 2020 lockdown - the majority are now open and welcome visitors more than ever (with social distancing measures). There is an outdoor market every day between Thursday and Sunday with a rotating theme (farmer's market, flea market, crafts market etc. At night the clubs and bars offer anything from the traditional Yorkshire pint to friendly micropubs, some with gastronomic delights and real local ales. Hebden Bridge is traditionally noted to be particularly good for music too, with the Trades club voted Music Week's Best Small Music venue in the UK 2015 (and shortlisted for NME Best Small Music Venue 2013 and 2014 ) and until recently hosted live music and open mic nights aplenty (we are looking forward to the day they can return! )
Other attractions until recently included the Handmade Parade, Piano Festival, Burlesque festival, Folkroots festival, Hebden Bridge Arts festival, Vintage Car Rally, Happy Valley Pride Festival, Wuthering Bytes Festival, Steampunk weekend, Calderdale Beer and Cider Festival, and The Hebden Bridge Dance Festival. Again, we hope they can return soon!
Walk up the hill and enter different worlds, pass through zones of woodland, patchwork fields lined with dry-stone walls and dotted with big old farmhouses, to the wild heather and bilberry-strewn moorland where you'll have your cobwebs blown away, maybe to the haunting sound of curlews. Then look back to fantastic far range views of distant hills, often bathed in a beautiful light.

Trains direct from Leeds or Manchester Victoria into Hebden Bridge station, or a drive to either take just under an hour. Then a 10 minute walk, or bus ride (buses leave station and drop off right outside house every half hour).
If driving, we are about 35 mins from Junction 24 of the M62 motorway - parking is in the bay on private road right outside the front of the house.
Being on a hillside, the back of the house is higher than the front. If coming by bus it is easier to come to the back of the house with your luggage, as all downhill or downstairs to get into house. If you're in car and park in front of house, there are a few steps up to front door. Once inside it's two flights of stairs to the bedroom.

I first fell in love with Hebden Bridge about 30 years ago, and like so many people, planned to stay a few years and then realised there is nowhere else like it and I couldn't leave!
I work two or three days a week as a GP locum and also do some work from home. I am a member of a fantastic local drumming group called Drum Machine, so I'm sometimes away at gigs at weekends.
I love travel, and always stay at other Air BnB accommodation if I can, I love the variety and insight into local life, from Ireland to Italy, Boston to Mexico, all so different. I'm fascinated by meeting new people and getting to know the amazing places where they live.
I also love music (though not much of a musician myself, both my sons are) and occasionally have friends around for a session in my front room or in the garden in summer (I will warn you if this is going to happen). There are instruments around, you're welcome to play the guitars, piano or ukeleles anytime!

During your stay

I'll usually be around on the ground floor working from home or relaxing unless its one of my working-at-work days, separated from your space by the kitchen door. I generally interact as much or as little as people want, but these days, face to face interaction is only outside. I really enjoy meeting new people, just occasionally I have to focus on work if there's a deadline to meet.
