About Widdop Gate Barn

A carefully-restored retreat with original features with views of rolling hills and the Hardcastle Crags valley.

A few years ago this Grade II listed barn was nothing but a romantic ruin. Now, after a careful restoration, it’s been converted into a two-bedroom rural retreat that oozes rustic charm. Inside you’ll find intriguing original features from its agricultural past. Timber cow stalls form the kitchen area and original high stone walls are met by the timber frame ceiling. There’s a cosy sitting room complete with wooden floors and a log-burner and a spacious galleried bedroom upstairs.


Upon arriving at Widdop Gate Barn you’ll be greeted with sweeping views of rolling hills and the wooded valley of Hardcastle Crags. From here 15 miles of footpaths unfold through unspoilt woodland, where waterfalls tumble into rocky steams.


The market town of Hebden Bridge is only two miles away and the city of Halifax is 10 miles to the east. You’re also about an hours’ drive from the Yorkshire Dales which is to the north.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
