The house is in a great location. Despite being small it coped with 4 adults and a dog admirably. Lots of character too.

A great little place that is cosy, comfortable and very functional. We loved the location as there are so many nice shops and restaurants just a few minutes stroll away. It is also extremely convenient for the train station. Matt was a really friendly and helpful host, everything went smoothly with check in and we felt like he would be on hand if there were any issues. Overall great value too.

Response from Matt:
Thanks for coming to stay Steven, and for your comments. The cottage is cleaned prior to guest's arrival and the cleaner is available to come and do the floors during guest's stay (so there is no need to vacum). We have set things up so that they should let guests know that you can ask them and they will come. I will talk with them and make sure the floors are cleaned as the current guests require and check with the guests in person. I do ask people to let me know if they have any issues during their stay, so I can address them as they arise, rather than afterwards. I check the airbnb emails at least once a day so that I can respond as quickly as possible. I haven't been ringing people when I haven't heard from them, as that seems intrusive. However, I might start doing so now to ensure that that people do have the cleanliness and any support they need. The downstairs light fuse is being replaced (the lamps are fine, it's just the overhead light). Following your comment, we are also going to give guests advice on keeping the room well-aired, including using the extractor fan for all cooking on the stove-top, using the smaller top windows to maintain airflow at times during the week, and in autumn and winter, using the wood fire at times. We find that using this combination works well, and appreciate your comment, as I hadn't yet included this as general advice. kind regards, Matt

Great location and value, you can park over the road at the station which is real handy. No freezer but you can easily work around this as shops pubs and take ways are minutes away on foot. No TV so make sure you have a book or laptop if you need to watch your latest episode.

We live in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire, and move between , the UK, China, and Australia. My Chinese is terrible, but I'm working on it (wo shuo Zhongwen bu hao!). I do research & teaching relating to "race", ethnicity, crime, migration. Like serious movies and cheerful people, the blues and jazz. Am a very slow but enthusiastic runner. Have a nice family, and some good friends. Pretty lucky all in all(:
