Description

The space

Your bedroom is in the large attic room with comfortable king sized double bed, splendid views over the Calder valley to the medieval village of Heptonstall on the opposite hillside, and en-suite shower and toilet.
The three storey house is located on one side of a very quiet no-through road, its large garden is on the other side. A five minute walk downhill takes you into this historic town, full of chic cafes, art studios, boutique crafts, clothing and vintage shops, whilst a 2 minute stroll across the main road behind the house leads to a beautiful beech wood with walks in the hillsides beyond, though little walled fields and onto the wild moors.
Guests are welcome to relax on the comfortable sofas in the front room on the ground floor, or spend time in the garden on sunny days.
Please note there are 29 steps in total from the outside of the house to your room, all have handrails but could be a challenge if you are not accustomed to stairs!

Guest access

Please note check in and out times are a guide, happy to be flexible around this - just ask! You have your own shower and toilet accessed only from your room. There is a desk in the bedroom suitable to use laptop/do work, easy to set up (remove coffee and tea things from desk, add chair) and happy to do in advance on request. You're welcome to use kitchen and facilities, just let us know, also the cosy front room with sofas, piano, TV and real fire.
Potential second room ideal for children (when my son is away) with platform double bed and another double bed below
There are 2 spare car parking spaces available in the bay right outside the house. You can enjoy a picnic or barbeque in the large peaceful terraced south-facing garden, with lovely views. 2 adult bikes in rideable condition are also available to borrow, with helmets.

You’re welcome to unlimited coffee and tea at any time, and help yourself to breakfast available: usually cereal, fruit, yoghourt, home made bread, toast and jams.
Or we’d be happy to make you a full English breakfast for £5 pp: local dry-cure bacon, butcher's sausage, black pudding and eggs, with mushrooms, tomatoes, beans and toast (please give at least 24 hours' notice!)

Interaction with guests

I'll usually be around pottering, or working from home unless its one of my working-at-work days. I generally interact as much or as little as people want, I really enjoy meeting new people, just occasionally I have to focus on work if there's a deadline to meet.

The neighbourhood

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, recycled bicycles, and shops devoted to an eclectic range of vintage and handmade items. These are all getting back on their feet after the devastating boxing day floods in 2016 and welcome visitors more than ever. At night the clubs and bars offer anything from the traditional Yorkshire pint to trendy wine bars, some with gastronomic delights and real ales. 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 live music and open mic nights aplenty.
Other attractions include the Handmade Parade (will be on 25th June in 2017) , Piano Festival (21st-23rd April 2017) Burlesque festival 27th-30th April 2017) Folkroots festival (May 12th-14th 2017) Hebden Bridge Arts festival (2 weeks in June/July - dates TBC) and Happy Valley Pride festival (7th-13th August)
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.


*(behind Daylesford, Australia, Tiradentes, Brazil and Burlington, Vermont).

Getting around

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/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, we are very happy to help with luggage when we are around.

Other things to note

As the attic is under the roof, there is one quite low beam in the bedroom - please mind your head!
The duvet and pillows contain feathers. If you have an allergy to feathers let us know in advance, as we can provide feather-free bedding on request.
This is our home, we keep it clean and try to keep it tidy but we hope you will excuse us when we lapse a little!

We had a lovely stay overnight at Susi's place. The communication was clear and straightforward, the room was beautiful, cosy and offered a stunning view over the valley. Even though we did not manage to meet Susi, as she was travelling, she had made sure we felt very welcome and could find everything we needed. Only regret was that we did not book a longer stay.

Susi's place is amazing. It is one of the most luxurious airbnb locations we have stayed in, and felt like real haven, with the beautiful views of the mountains around and the view of the whole town. Susi's hospitality was amazing. It felt really like hotel, with all the towels and bath robes and great breakfast. We would love to come back and recommend this place to anyone

Our stay at Susi's and Hebden Bridge was the best part of our trip! You can't beat the beautiful view from the room, just amazing. Wish we had stayed for more than one night and hope to come back for more good times in Hebden Bridge soon again!

My husband and I stayed in the attic room for one night during a quick weekend getaway to Hebden Bridge and it was lovely! The views are incredible - both at night and especially in the morning. Susi has put a lot of thought and care into the space to make sure it is accommodating. I loved the selection of tea and coffee (and a French Press!), as well as all the books on hand. The bathroom is excellent as well, really nice shower. We usually stay in private flats or entire homes when using Airbnb, so it was really nice to stay in a shared home but have it be so self contained and private. Susi was great with communication as well, super awesome host!

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! These days I'm lucky enough to also spend a few weeks a year in my 'second home' in Tucson Arizona, where my partner lives.
I work two days a week as a GP in a neighbouring town and also do some work from home, plus occasionally cooking mexican burritos and quesadillas in my kitchen to sell in Hebden Bridge. 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 recently discovered Air BnB-ing myself, I've stayed in many in the last year, from Ireland to Mexico, all so different. I'm fascinated by meeting new people and getting to know the amazing places where they live.
I'm keen on music (though not much of a musician myself) but you're welcome to play the guitars, piano or ukeleles
