A bit about us

Our History

Holiday Cottages Hebden Bridge is a small family run business, we take great pride in creating a ‘home from home’ feel for guests so that you are able unwind and soak up the stunning panoramic views of the Yorkshire Pennine’s that Stephenson House has to offer from the moment you walk through the door.

Stephenson House was our family home for 25 years until recently, when we moved and decided to set up Stephenson House as a self-catering holiday cottage. When we originally bought Stephenson House only the farm house was habitable and in the late 1990’s, we lovingly restored the barn space. More recently we fully refurbished the farm house, blending many of the original features, such as old beams and exposed stonework with modern furnishings and fittings to provide guests with a spacious but homely holiday cottage.

Watch this space! We are in the process of developing a further two smaller, more intimate holiday cottages. We hope to be able to add these cottages to our portfolio in the near future.
