Illuminated Street Festival 5-7pm, Lantern Parade at 7pm followed by a Firey Finale! Make your own and join the parade - Lantern workshops will be held date, schedule and location to be confirmed.*** Lovingly restored to a very high standard, the Old Chapel Schoolhouse is a cottage full of character, and seamlessly combines many original features, such as exposed stone fireplaces, stone flagged floor, waxed floorboards, traditional old beams and antique furniture meshed with contemporary fixtures and fittings. This Todmorden cottage has a delightful sitting room with a warm and cosy gas stove and a large diner kitchen with original Yorkshire stone flooring, making these rooms an ideal place to eat and relax after a hard day's walking. Complimentary unlimited WiFi is available to keep you in touch. The double and twin bedrooms enjoy wonderful views across the valley and out to the surrounding moorland. The twin beds can be converted to a super-king sized bed. The property is in a slightly elevated, south facing position enjoying wonderful views yet located within 10 minutes walk from Todmorden town centre, nestled in the Upper Calder Valley, ideally suited to explore the best of both Yorkshire and Lancashire. A fantastic retreat and base for walking, cycling, golfing, horse riding or just relaxing! The town of Todmorden, home to 'Incredible Edible' and the 'Lucky Dog' was also recently featured in BBC 1's 'Countryfile' and offers a thriving indoor and outdoor market, shops, pubs and cafes. Enjoy walks from the doorstep across the Bronte's beloved Moors, visit the village of Heptonstall with its two historic pubs, or explore the home of the Bronte sisters in nearby Haworth. There are many fantastic walks, cycle routes and horse rides close to this Todmorden cottage, from a walk to the impressive Stoodley Pike, built to commemorate the end of the Napoleonic Wars, or a gentle amble to Orchan Rocks, Whirlaw Rocks, Bride Stones, Britain's highest beach Gaddings Dam or along the canal towpath to the town of Hebden Bridge which is five miles away and boasts interesting nightlife, curiosity shops, a milkbar and the 'old cinema' where they serve tea and scones at the interval! Additionally, the Calderdale Way, Pennine Way and Mary Towneley Loop pass through or are very close to Todmorden. Commutable via train to Leeds (approx 60mins) and Manchester (approx 40mins). The cottage is located ideally to explore both Yorkshire and Lancashire. This welcoming cottage is ideal for families and friends, and can be enjoyed any time of year.More
