Originally a farmer’s cottage and barn, now extended to be a luxurious countryside retreat, Rough Top is full of original features and character, providing you with a relaxing environment for your holiday.
Ideal for those wanting to get away from it all, Rough Top is situated in a quiet hilltop area at around 1300 feet above sea level you can be assured of stunning views and plenty of walks and cycle routes for all abilities. We are within easy walking distance of Bridestone’s Rocks, a popular haunt for climbers and scramblers. We are around 2 miles from the Pennine way and Mary Towneley Loop of the Pennine Bridleway both accessible via pathways or short drive. Once you’ve explored our local surroundings, you can return and relax in front of a roaring, log fire.
The welcoming farmhouse kitchen is equipped with all kitchen implements and utensils, with the large table able to easily seat 8, handy if you’ve got friends or family locally to invite over.
The bedrooms are in keeping with the farmhouse style, with pine beds and brilliant views on tap! We have one double and one twin room upstairs with a shower room and a single bedroom downstairs, also with a neighbouring shower room – ideal for if one of your party isn’t so keen on the stairs, or wants to be alone!
If you’re interested in venturing off the hillside, we are situated above Hebden Bridge and are a short drive away from Haworth, the home of the Bronte sisters. We are also a 28 minute train ride from Manchester city centre as well as being easy distance for a day out in Leeds, Harrogate, Skipton or Blackpool.
The McNeill family have owned Rough Top for several years and have gradually over the years renovated it, keeping it in the traditional style of a 17th century farmhouse. Bought when derelict the renovations have been done to try to keep the original features, 2 foot thick walls, beamed ceilings and low doorways but without losing the needs of a modern day family. We started the holiday let business in 2014 and have made it a home from home.We live just a small paddock away and are usually around to help with any needs you may have. We look forward to welcoming you, your family and pets to Rough Top Cottage.
