Pule Cottage is situated at the end of a row of three 18th century crofters' cottages set in a unique position high above Halifax, approximately 1000 ft above sea level, and benefits from magnificent views over the town and rural countryside that is Calderdale. The town of Halifax sits in the valley below, and is still only 5 minutes away by car, this is what makes Pule Cottage unique – 'the setting'.
Why not take that deserved weekly break or just enjoy a long weekend in our fully refurbished cottage that can serve as a base for visits to Skipton, Haworth, Hebden Bridge and the Yorkshire Dales. With excellent links to the M62 and M1 it is ideally situated with easy access to Halifax and Calderdale's beautiful moors and countryside as widely seen on TV during the coverage of Le Tour de France in 2014 and more recently the Tour de Yorkshire.
Pule Cottage is minutes away from Bankfield Museum and Shibden Hall and Park, once the home of Anne Lister and the location for the BBC Drama Series 'Gentleman Jack'. Halifax and Calderdale have also been the location for many other TV and Film dramas including Last Tango in Halifax, Happy Valley, To Walk Invisible, Ackerley Bridge, The Last Witch and many more, some being filmed in our local vicinity.
The cottage has been fully renovated and refurbished. Lovingly restored with original beams, exposed stone and mullioned windows and sills. The spacious sitting room has flagged stone flooring with original inglenook and log burner stove offering that warm and cosy ambiance for a relaxing evening watching TV, DVD or listening to music. There is also a large Sofa Bed in the sitting room and a walk-in shower room on the ground floor. There is a separate Kitchen diner/Snug with butler sink, oak worktops, washer/dryer, fridge, dishwasher, etc where you can catch up on your emails or simply relax and watch TV with a cup of coffee or share that alfresco moment on the delightful sun terrace taking in the full vista of the magnificent landscape.
The first floor offers a spacious bedroom with a King Size bed, open beamed ceiling, a sitting area with tea/coffee facilities, mullioned windows looking out over the wonderful views and a 45” Smart TV. There is a large en-suite shower room with rain shower. The Cottage is centrally heated throughout.
Walking, cycling – there are many lovely country walks only minutes away from the cottage. If a keen cyclist there is the challenge of the ‘Shibden Wall’ at the end of the lane. The Calderdale Way is also close by and takes in the beautiful Shibden Valley and the Anne Lister Walks.
A 5-minute drive away is the magnificent Piece Hall, the ‘jewel in the crown’ of Halifax and a must see when visiting the area.
If you book ahead you could also pay a very relaxing visit to Le Petit Spa at the bottom of the lane, one of the top Yorkshire Spas on Trip Advisor and well worth a visit.
