About Nick & Gill Vile
Hi. I teach at the local primary school in Old Town and enjoy the peace and quiet of our lovely small holding. I moved to Hebden Bridge in 1987 (for just one year, in fact) but we fell in love with Hebden Bridge as it is so well located & has everything you could possibly need. With terrific rail links to Leeds, Manchester, and many more it became the perfect place from which to commute - to my school in Blackburn while my husband travelled by train to Leeds. So we stayed and bought a little weavers cottage in the valley. I love horses and animals so was always keen to buy some land and we moved to Carrs Farm in 1999. We lived in a caravan for 2 years while the farm was renovated. We have horses, a dog and a couple of adorable pygmy goats. The farm house took a long time and a lot of work but in 2010 we converted what was a farm building into our holiday cottage 'Piglet's House' It's been a huge success and I love meeting people & welcoming them to stay. Our guests regularly comment favourably on the stunning views from our balcony, the peace and quiet, the cosy log fire, the 'easy to walk to' local pub and how fabulous Hebden Bridge is.
Nick & Gill Vile purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Nick & Gill Vile chose Hebden Bridge
Piglet's House is detached and it has unrivalled views across the valley. Stoodley Pike can easily be seen in the distance and the views are across green fields to the East and South with views of Heptonstall with its church to the west. The cottage is in Old Town with its own pub, Post Office, cricket club, golf club, park & equestrian centre. There are stunning walks on the moors above us - within 5 minutes. It takes about 15 min to walk into Hebden Bridge but 20 + on the way back....as it's up hill!! However, taxis are easy to book and the fare is about £4 / 5. There are buses up to Old Town too. Hebden Bridge is well worth a visit. We believe it has something for everyone. It's generally very dog friendly too.
What makes this Cottage unique
Piglet's House is cosy in Winter & cool in Summer. If the weather is good, then a glass of wine or a beer on the balcony provides the perfect chance to relax & unwind. The view is stunning and we often get the most incredible sunsets. The balcony is south / SW facing so it captures the best hours of the day. Piglet's House has its own car park with additional space for visitors. The parking is very accessible, next to the cottage & off-road. As Piglet's House is all on one level, it is wheelchair accessible. There is a wood burning stove for the Winter nights although we leave the central heating (with thermostat) on 24/7. Our 2 pygmy goats are your immediate neighbours. Grantley is a bit shy but his girlfriend, Scout is very friendly. They both adore any guests who give them green vegetable peelings. Many of our guests comment on how much they enjoy watching them from the kitchen window. Children, and most dogs love them!

Perfect get away
We really loved our stay at Piglet House. The location was great, with fabulous views and just the right distance from Hebden Bridge and the local pub. Gill was a really good host, providing us with extra bedding for an additional guest and gave loads of friendly advice on interesting places to visit. We also appreciated the bottle of wine on arrival. The facilities in the house are excellent. All in all, we would thoroughly recommend Piglet House and would definitely like to return.
The Only Place You'll Ever Want to Stay!
Excellent location, beautiful, tranquil countryside surroundings, and first-rate hosts. I loved my stay and will definitely return.
Super hilltop views,
Clean and well equipped, host very friendly, log fire is a nice evening treat.
Great little cottage
Great little cottage with superb views. Lovely and quiet locayion yet only a couple of minutes drive from the centre of Hebden Bridge. Great owners who even offered to drive us into the village. Highly recommended this place and the surrounding area. There is even a dog friendly pub 5 mins walk away which serves great food. If I've a slight criticism it's the shower, which is not very powerful. Overall we had a great time in a lovely part of the country and would definately stay again.
Thank you for your kind review. We feel sorry that for your 2 day stay the weather wasn't too great but are glad to hear that despite this, you enjoyed your stay. Thanks again.
Lovely cosy cottage, get away from it all.
Lovely cottage, clean, perfect getaway for 2. Be prepared for a steep drive to get there but once you are the views are stunning. 5 min walk to the local pub which has good food. A 20 minute off road walk into Hebden Bridge and you're right in the centre with good restaurants. Highly recommended, lovely owners.
Thank you for your helpful review. So lovely to meet you too.
Fantastic what a spot to stay in
We loved our time here
