This is a light spacious room with spectacular views to Norland across the Calder Valley.

Enjoy looking at the cast iron Victorian feature fireplace and the traditional restored pine wardrobe doors which hide a modern hanging rail and drawers for your clothes.


Contemporary and luxurious, this is a lovely place to relax in the large white shower/bath. Enjoy using the Aqualisa digital overhead shower or use the additional handheld shower fitting. The basin is inset in a glossy white drawer unit which matches the cupboards storing the gas central heating boiler and the washer dryer. An illuminated mirror, a heated towel rail and grey porcelain tiles to walls and floor complete the 21st century look.


Halifax, West Yorkshire is situated 16 miles west of Leeds and 30 miles north east of Manchester, with easy links to both cities and more by both motorway (M62) and rail.

Good quality roads quickly take you to the beautiful countryside of the South Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is an ideal location from which to explore the South Pennines, the Bronte Country and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Calder & Hebble Navigation, the Rochdale Canal, quirky Hebden Bridge and the industrial and cultural heritage of Yorkshire and Lancashire have much to offer visitors.

Dyer’s Cottage is situated on the North side of the Calder Valley in West Yorkshire between Halifax and Sowerby Bridge; both places featured in the TV series” Last Tango in Halifax” and filming for “Happy Valley” took place in Sowerby Bridge. Shops, pubs, restaurants, public transport (trains and buses), and canals are all within a short stroll.

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
