Description

~ Luxury Barn Conversion ~ Enclosed Garden ~ Private rural location ~ Firepit ~ Panoramic windows ~ 100% renewable energy - Underfloor heating ~ Dog Friendly - NEW FOR 2021 Oak framed lockable glamping lodge

Hidden away in the heart of the small village of Hepstonhall, Star Barn is a newly converted barn that balances rustic style with contemporary design and next-level comfort. The sunny living area is the heart of the home and especially delightful, with plenty of character courtesy of vaulted ceilings and oak beams, and an abundance of sunlight and rural views thanks to a stunning glass panelled wall. Outside you have your own private garden with a fire pit. This home is especially wonderful for dog owners – not only are four-legged friends welcome, but the garden is totally enclosed and there are plenty of fantastic local dog walks.

Star Barn is on TV! Shanaz Gulzar steps back in time while walking through the historic village of Heptonstall. Filming on her handheld 360-degree selfie-style camera, Shanaz rambles past Hell Hole, along the canal in Hebden Bridge, before climbing uphill to the peace monument of Stoodley Pike. This is an historic walk that straddles both the north and south sides of Calderdale. Inspired by the landscape Shanaz stops to sketch and read poetry. This walk is an intimate and personal account of West Yorkshire viewed through an artist’s eyes.

Heptonstall is a charming village with an amazingly diverse history. The Barn is in the heart of the village, and when you have finished exploring the lanes and the old churchyard there are two welcoming pubs, both serving food. There is also a village post office, a fascinating artisan craft shop to browse and a great little deli too. The local museum (run by our friend Richard) is housed in the old grammar school and contains some fascinating local artifacts.

There are footpaths onto the moors, or down into the beautiful National Trust woodlands at Hardcastle Crags. We are a short drive to Howarth and Bronte country. Below the village is Hebden Bridge. Packed with proudly independent shops and numerous places to eat & drink, it was rightly crowned Best Small Market Town in the Great British High Street Awards in 2016.

The village hosts an annual music festival and well as the famous (and baffling) Pace egg play. We also host the delightful Pennine Spring Music event.

We are on Sustrans Cycle route 68 and the Pennine way. The Calderdale way comes right through the village. Fell running is very popular due to the wealth of pathways across the woodland and moorlands, and we'd love to advise on our favorite routes.

A nice summer retreat if you’re wanting some quiet time in a peaceful small village. Great walks for dogs, and a lovely outside seating area to enjoy nice weather. The barn is spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. Mark was friendly, helpful and a lovely host.

Totally unique property in a beautiful village. Within walking distance to Hebden Bridge (although you can get a taxi for less than a fiver). We also visited Haworth which is a 20 minute drive away across the moors - views are amazing. Would highly recommend for a relaxing stay with the option of a more lively night out etc down in Hebden Bridge. Best of both worlds!

Mark and Penny are very welcoming without being at all intrusive. The Barn is stylish, comfortable and well presented. We very much enjoyed sitting in the courtyard garden in the sunny weather

This stylish Barn did not disappoint; indeed we feel the photographs did not really do it justice. Appreciated the quiet location in this unspoilt village and the outdoor seating was welcome and well used even in September. The beds are very comfortable and the wifi fast and reliable.

I booked Star Barn for family members who came to visit. I looked long and hard for accommodation in this area that is dog friendly and all on one level... it is a rare find! Star Barn is a beautiful, peaceful place to stay. The decor is lovely and it is really well equipped. It was spotlessly clean too. Mark and Penelope were really helpful and accommodating but at the same time the barn feels very private. A brilliant base to explore from especially if you are a keen walker. I would not hesitate to recommend Star Barn.

A beautifully converted barn in a busy village but in a secluded setting. Because of traffic restrictions it is very quiet. A lovely place to recharge without being miles away from amenities. I hope we will be coming back

We cannot fault anything about the Star Barn. Penny and Mark really make you welcome and have provided a fantastic place to stay, well furnished, very clean and lots of thoughtful touches. The outside areas are a real treat with lots of seating areas, a swing chair and a hammock. We really enjoyed toasting marshmallows around the fire pit. There is lots to keep the family entertained in and around this picturesque village, with Hebden Bridge just a short walk away and many attractions within a short drive. We can't wait to go back.

“Location was superb. Very quiet spot just off the main street. Quite tight to manouvre our estate car down the narrow lane but managable. There are no expansive views but the outside space has been made very pleasant and good walks are literally from the doorstep.”

"The barn and its setting are amazing. The owners, Penny and Mark, were equally amazing. The barn is in the heart of Heptonstall, which is a quintessential Yorkshire village. The barn's glass front is beautiful, so too the various seating areas arranged outside the barn. Inside the barn, everything is open plan with tall ceilings and everything is top quality and was spotlessly clean. To pick just one thing out, the bed and bed linen were exceptional. The owners live behind the barn and run the farm its inside of. They gave us a warm welcome and were very friendly every time we saw them. Between them and the materials in the barn, there is plenty of advice on the local area, walks and places to visit. My walk recommendation is the Hebden Bridge Loop - there is a map for this in the barn and one leg of it starts literally at the farm. We stayed at the barn to sound out Hebden Bridge as a place to live - Hebden bridge is a 20min walk away although (very) steeply up or down hill. There are regular buses and a good taxi service available if you dont want to walk back up the hill. You can of course also bring your car - there is parking by the barn. There are lots of amenities, and great bars and restaurants in Hebden Bridge. The highlight for my partner and I is the Vocation Brewery Tap Room which of course has a great beer selection but also do awesome mexican food. We honestly felt very privileged to get to stay at the barn. I'm sure you'll love it as much as we did."

“Beautiful space, spotlessly clean , really comfortable bed. Pretty hilltop village. Perfect location for exploring Hebden Bridge and surrounding countryside on foot from this great barn conversion Would recommend going to see Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield. Brilliant gallery, so easy by train from Hebden. Strongly recommend this great Airbnb. Thank you Mark & Penny, we will be back.”
