The closest village is Honley which is a fun quirky village with little cobbled streets. There are tapas, chinese, Italian restaurants in the village.  Kräfty Kettle is a really cool Craft Ale bar.

The nearest town is Holmfirth (Last of the Summer Wine country!). It’s actually very like Whitby with its cobbled streets and quirky shops etc. Great restaurants and bars too. Always ask the owners for recommendations if you like. 

Just 5 minutes walk or 2 minute drive up the road is Hinchcliffes Farm Shop - which offers fabulous fresh fruit & vegetables, bakery, butchers, flowers, gifts etc. They also have a great restaurant/cafe called The Rusty Bull, serving breakfast, coffees and fabulous light bites and full meals. Friday and Saturday nights are open for dinner too. 

The 3 Acres Inn & Restaurant is a fabulous and very well known place within the area and further afield. The most amazing atmosphere, fantastic food and drinks, great service etc. Definitely worth a visit. This is only 20 mins drive from the hideaway. The owners can arrange a taxi if required. They also do Woodfired evenings and put a tipi up in the summer months with great music, cocktails, woodfired food etc. To book this please enquire with Chloe - the owner of the Shepherd's Hut who will arrange this for you.
