Robin Hood Cottage is situated in the wooded valley of Cragg Vale, close to the Calderdale and Pennine Way footpaths and magnificent countryside.

The area is famous for its beautiful moorlands and deep river valleys. Visitors can enjoy the area in all seasons with bluebell woods in the Spring, lush greenery in the Summer, rich golden leaves and purple heather in the Autumn and hauntingly bleak rolling moorland in the winter.

The cottage is a short walk away from two public houses ‘The Robin Hood’ and the ‘Hinchliffe Arms’, both of which serve good food.



Local amenities and the lovely town of Hebden Bridge, heart of the Pennines, are a short drive away (10min). Hebden Bridge is a former mill town famous for its bridges, unusual architecture and canal network. It has a variety of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. There is an exceptional cinema, theatre and lively arts community. Haworth, home of the Bronte sisters, and Holmfirth, filming location of the popular series ‘Last of the Summer Wine’, are short drives away (13 and 20 miles respectively).

The cities of Leeds and Manchester are a 30 minute drive away to the east and west of the cottage or are accessible by very frequent local train services.



The area has excellent transport services. Hebden Bridge is the nearest main railway station, with direct trains to Leeds, Manchester and York. A bus service runs regularly from Hebden Bridge to Cragg Vale and the bus stop is a one minute walk from the cottage.
