A pleasant patio garden to the rear provides a peaceful place to sit and relax with a coffee or glass of wine on a sunny evening. The cottage is thought to date back to the 17th century and is believed to have been part of a Public House and Inn called The Swan, the only house in the fold to have a cellar presumably for the storage of beer.More

The cottage is lovely - comfortable, very tastefully decorated and dog-friendly. The location is fantastic with some beautiful country within a short distance. We had a very enjoyable 5 days at Swanfold and would definitely recommend a stay in this super cottage.

About the neighbourhood
Heptonstall is approximately 1 mile and a 15 minute walk away from vibrant Hebden Bridge, which has been voted the “funkiest town in the UK”, with many independent shops, cafes and galleries. There is a frequent bus service to and from Hebden Bridge where there is also a train station, meaning a car is not essential when visiting the area. It is also possible to hire a narrow boat for the day to explore the surrounding waterways and there is an old cinema serving tea and scones in the interval, something for a less sunny day perhaps. Swanfold is situated in a quiet yet central position in Heptonstall. Amenities within a 2 minute walk include a tearoom and occasional evening bistro serving a wide range of dangerously delicious cakes as well as takeaway meals, 2 dining pubs with excellen...
How to get there
The property address is 2 Swanfold, Heptonstall, Hebden Bridge, HX7 7NP Directions: From Hebden Bridge town centre heading towards Todmorden follow signs to Heptonstall via the turning circle and turn left up the hill at the Fox & Goose pub. Take the first left turn, which is signposted to Heptonstall, continue onto the cobbles and Swanfold is located on the right hand side between the Cross Inn and the White Lion, behind tall double iron gates set back from the road. There is no parking outside the cottage as the lane is very narrow, but it is usually possible to pull in to load/unload and there is a free car park approximately 100 yards away. This car park is located just after the cobbles start on entering the village, on the right hand side immediately before the Towngate Tearoom...
