The New Hobbit is a traditional country inn with views across the Calder Valley. Built in the early 1900s as a pub, it's now a restaurant and inn with contemporary and vintage-styled rooms. The cosy, family-friendly restaurant is an ideal spot to take in the views while staying warm by the log fire.
The West Yorkshire mill town of Sowerby Bridge, known for its picturesque waterways (the River Calder, River Ryburn and Rochdale Canal all run through the town) lined with trendy pubs and cafés, is 20 minutes' walk from the hotel, or less than five minutes' drive. Just outside Sowerby Bridge is Mill Bank Village, which has a gold award from Yorkshire in Bloom. Once home to seven cotton, silk and wool mills, Mill Bank is now a conservation area popular with ramblers.
Halifax is arond 15 minutes' drive away -- feast your way round the Grade II-listed Victorian food market or visit 15th-century Halifax Minster and admire the remaining medieval stained-glass windows. Shibden Hall, a Grade II-listed historic house set in 32 hectares of gardens and woodlands, is just ouside Halifax. The former home of landowner and diarist Anne Lister, it recently featured in "Gentleman Jack", the BBC drama series about her life.
