A beautiful property in a beautiful location. The dog enjoyed the field and walks from the cottage, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay.
Mr Allen

Beautiful house with lovely views and thoughtfully equipped. Stayed for a few days to celebrate our wedding anniversary ...wonderful spot and we enjoyed some great walking from the cottage. Not really any need to get the car out as there are some lovely walks from the house and the railway at Walsden is a 20 minute walk along the canal ...from there regular trains to Todmorden, Hebden bridge ...and further. The house is very comfortable and the wood burner make it cosy in the evenings ...the owners have provided some really detailed information both about using the house, iinteresting information on how it was restored and a wealth of maps and walks. Would definitely go back Thank you Penny & Nigel.

A beautiful cottage in a very peaceful spot. It was thoughtfully equipped and we enjoyed a very relaxing few days. There are some lovely walks very nearby, including gentle strolls along the canal paths. Worth walking into Walsden and taking the train to Hebden Bridge to explore.
Mrs Rabjohns

Salter Rake Gate Cottage was beautiful, warm and inviting in every way. The design of the building, the decor and soft furnishings were tasteful, luxurious yet practical. The sofas and beds were all comfortable. We had plenty of space in the kitchen and round the dining table for convivial living. It was cosy with the wood burning stove and the views were dramatic. It's location was perfect for walking, cafes and shops. It was peaceful and instilled a lovely sense of calm. We didn't want to leave!
