Hebden Bridge Christmas Break: Moderate
Enjoy a wonderful Christmas break in Hebden Bridge, home to artists and small independent shops, and surrounded by the beautiful and wild Pennine hills and moorland.
The Hebden Bridge hills make for terrific walking. There are endless drystone walls, ancient packhorse paths, wooded valleys and wild moorlands. There is also much interesting history, the area having been at the centre of the early textile industry – long since vanished but the landscape still resonates with this early trade. Each day starts with a walk upwards out of the valley, the footpaths can be a little rough underfoot, the ground can be muddy, and there will be various stone stiles and steps to tackle. But the views are terrific and certainly reward the effort.
The walks will take in the best the location has to offer and will be flexible according to weather conditions at the time. However, we hope to include a linear walk to Haworth, home of the Brontes, and the imposing monument of Stoodley Pike which overlooks the valley.
We will have exclusive use of the recently refurbished and comfortable IOU hostel where single occupancy ensuite dormitories are available. You can also choose to share for a discount of £150 per person. However, if there is nobody to share the dorm, the single occupancy rate will be applied.
We will have our own cook on site and breakfast, packed lunch and evening meals are included. Please note that the hostel is a vegetarian space.
