2nd visit, you wont find better value for money with an excellent cottage.
This is the second time we have stayed. Penny, the owner is amazing and so very helpful. The property is clean and has so much character. Honestly, if you book you will not be disappointed.

An amazing weekend
We stayed at this lovely cottage last weekend. The pictures on the web do not do it justice it really is amazing. Seven of us stayed and a lot more with guests coming and going over the weekend. There was plenty of room for everyone. The wood burner helped make it a magical stay for all of us. The bedrooms were an excellent size and has three separate toilets including two large bathrooms. We would have happily given five stars if it wasn?t for a couple of points: The main shower was rubbish with no pressure, although the shower over the bath was good. The cottage was clean but it desperately needs a deep clean with the floors very dirty and the mop head should be binned. It is so close to being perfect and even though not a five star rating very reasonably priced and worth every penny.

Lovely cottage
Stayed here as a family group for a long weekend . This cottage has been restored to a high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It has all the mod cons and is well equipped with everything that you may need. We didn?t have long enough here so we are hoping to return and further explore the area

Lovely cottage
We booked for Christmas 2018, and the cottage is comfortable and well stocked. The kitchen is good with most of the equipment you are likely to need - although you might need some extra pans if you are doing a big meal. Beds are comfortable. Main room is nice and warm once the fire gets going. The owners are friendly, and their dog is lovely. There is lots of good walking nearby. It is up a steep access road, so if any of your party have limited mobility, be aware they might not be able to get about without a vehicle. Overall, an excellent break in a lovely cottage.

Fabulous cottage in beautiful location.
We feel very lucky to have found such a wonderful cottage to stay in. Having spent a couple of years living in Todmorden a while back, I wanted to show the sights to my husband, 3 year old and in-laws. Finding a place to sleep 7 in the Hebden Bridge was surprisingly hard, but then we found Salter Rake Gate cottage and weren't disappointed. Up a rather steep hill we found a beautifully refurbished house equipped with everything we could possibly need. The location was great too, beautiful rural views from every window yet easy to reach local amenities in Todmorden and Littleborough. Our son adores trains so we took advantage of the railway to take trips to Halifax and Bradford as well as a ride on the Worth Valley Railway. We would highly recommend Eureka and the Bradford media museum for kids on a rainy day. The in laws enjoyed walks along the many footpaths accessible from the house, and the hubby even managed a bit of mountain biking at Lee Valley Quarry. Also recommended is a visit to Grandma Pollards chippy opposite Walsden station. Fantastic fish a day chips in a real traditional restaurant with a bus to eat your chips on if you can find space! They also do enormous and delicious fruit pies and vanilla slices if your stomach can take it. We would happily stay in this beautiful cottage again and would love to take advantage of the great location for walks along the Pennine Way and beyond in the future.
