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.

The cottage is located in a perfect location for those wanting peace and quiet. The cottage was a superb size for our party of 5 along with our dog.The layout and the standard of fittings in the cottage were excellent and it was much bigger than we had expected. Overall if you're looking for somewhere peaceful I'd definitely recommend this cottage.

Lovely large cottage for a family looking for a peaceful holiday
As a family of 5, with a big, nervous dog who loves to walk, we chose this cottage as it seemed to offer a perfect location away from the town and with access straight onto the hills above. We were delighted when we got here, via a steep road, as it was lovely and secluded with just a handful of houses surrounding it. The location was perfect also for day trips out to wonderful places such as Hebden Bridge, Hollingsworth Lake, Heptonstall and further afield to Manchester. I would particularly recommend a walk up to Gaddings dam which was a lovely walk for the whole family to enjoy on a sunny day. We were also impressed with the cottage itself, which was much bigger than we had expected. The layout was just perfect for our family and the quality of fittings was to a very good standard. We loved the hard flooring downstairs which was very useful for our Labrador and also the open plan layout. The addition of a large shower room and bathroom as well as a downstairs toilet was also appreciated, since we had two older teenagers with us. I would therefore recommend this cottage and I would definitely return here.

Outstanding Cottage
An outstanding cottage with great views. The cottage has plenty of space and character, everything you need for a home from home holiday.
