Oats Royd is perched on a steep valley side, high above the ancient village of Luddenden, with Midgley and Booth nearby.
Luddenden Dean is a beautiful narrow 'hidden' valley which runs south into the main Calder valley at Luddenden Foot.
Just a couple of miles west is the lively town of Hebden Bridge. Recently voted best town in Britain for its eclectic mix of independent shops, it is buzzing with cafés and bars, along side galleries, gift shops and organic food outlets.
The whole area is steeped in fascinating industrial, architectural and social history; with the Calder and Hebble Navigation Canal, the railway and many other interesting old mill towns such as Halifax, Sowerby Bridge, Todmorden, Haworth and others.
With superb walking, cycling, touring or simply 'pottering about' straight from the door, Oats Royd Barn is an ideal base for exploring many parts of Yorkshire and Lancashire.
Luddenden (do you remember "In Loving Memory" on the TV?) is only a short (but very steep) walk from the door, and at its heart, opposite St Mary's church is our cosy local pub the Lord Nelson.
Bradford, Leeds and Manchester are all within the hour by car. Rail links are close by and local buses stop right outside.
