Lovely 4 Bed home swap in Luddenden, England
Our house is a spacious, warm and quaint family home, formerly two weaverscottages, situated right near the old mill and the Pennine moors, great for walking and cycling.
We have a lovely light kitchen with a skylight, big table and granite worktops, plenty of room to cook, eat and sit around relaxing and enjoying the view over the garden.
The spacious sitting room is split level, with mullioned windows overlooking the hills opposite the house. Big sofas, gas fueled coal burner in stone fireplace and big 50" TV (Sky etc) make for a comfortable relaxing zone after you come in from your long walks and cycling up hills and down dales....or your relaxing shop in local Hebden Bridge ('the great town for little shops')...or your trip to York, Manchester or Leeds (all an accessible train ride away).
Accommodation is two big double bedrooms, two small single bedrooms and a playroom with double sofa bed. There is a downstairs loo and utility room, which houses washer dryer, freezer, recycling and the usual family overflow of detritus.
Our favorite things about the house: its cosy but spacious atmosphere (old world but light and warm), its location (amazing rural valley location), its local pub (the Lord Nelson, yes we have staggered up the cobbled pack horse track after an evening out) and best of all, its complete peace and quiet.
Oh, what can we say? It is almost unrivaled. Set at the edge of a historic village in the amazing Luddenden Dene valley, you can walk onto the moors up cobbled tracks, or cycle along country lanes and cycle tracks, or just walk into the village and have a pint in the village pub, the Lord Nelson where Bronte stopped on his walk through to Haworth, and where you can get a decent meal several nights a week...or you could travel a couple of miles into Sowerby Bridge which has some fantastic restaurants.
Hebden Bridge is about three miles away, with its 'funkyimage and great shopping environment, as well as historic pack horse bridge and great cafes and little clothes shops. The waterfalls at Jerusalem Farm and Hardcastle Crags will blow all your cobwebs away and if you are a kid (or a big kid) you can even paddle in the rivers ....bring wellies.
