Lumb Bank


Lumb Bank is an 18th-century millowner’s house in West Yorkshire, which once belonged to Ted Hughes. It’s set in 20 acres of steep woodland, with breath-taking views to the valley below – a Pennine landscape of woods and rivers, weavers’ cottages, packhorse trails and ruins of old mills. It is half a mile from the historic village of Heptonstall and two miles from Hebden Bridge. Our Cottage will be available to let from 21 May 2021.

The Cottage is in a quiet spot on the edge of the property, away from the other buildings onsite, and can accommodate a maximum of 5 people. There are 2 bedrooms with double beds and a single bedroom. There is also a shared shower room/toilet, shared kitchen, sitting room and small dining space. You will have access to our lovely kitchen garden, also with splendid views onto the valley. For colder weather there is central heating and an open fire.

Price: £695 per week. We only book on a 7 night basis.
Maximum capacity: 5 (includes two doubles and a single bedroom). Covid restrictions on groups and household mixing will apply.
Extras: Accommodation of dogs (only one permitted) £50 for the week
Current available dates (weeks beginning): 21 May – 5 July 2021
