A Historic 4 Bedroom House in the heart of Pennines home swap

SEEKING SWAP TO London Autumn 2017, GERMANY Summer 2018.
Our Grade 2 listed house was built for weavers in about 1780. It was originally two dwellings, one on top of the other, and for a while it had a shop at the front. It is now a largish family home on 5 floors (lots of stairs!). There are 4 proper bedrooms - but room for extra guests. We have original beams & a wood burning stove, views of the beautiful hillside. We have a small cobbled courtyard at the back, quiet & sunny, but not fenced off as our neighbours have access through it. We are on the main road at the front with parking nearby. The house is five minutes walk from an eclectic mix of shops, pubs, great cafes & restaurants. Public transport is good: you don't need to drive to enjoy the local area.
Bring your walking boots or wellies to explore the fantastic countryside on our doorstep. Try out some local ales in one of the nearby bars - or relax in front of our wood-burner with a board game from our collection!

About the location

When our house was built at the time of the industrial revolution, Hebden Bridge was a thriving mill town. Old mills and chimneys are still dotted around the landscape, together with the 'under and over' houses like ours which typify the area. The old mill worker tracks surrounding the town provide hundreds of different walks - canalside, woodland, moorland, rivers and waterfalls. Today, Hebden Bridge has a Bohemian feel, very welcoming and child tolerant. For its small area there is a lot going on - theatre, cinema and music venues as well as its pubs and restaurants. The town hosts a number of festivals throughout the year including its folk festival in April and famous 'handmade parade' in June. We are near Howarth with easy connections to Manchester (35 mins by train) & Leeds (55 mins).
