The excellent apartments at Croft Mill
A couple of weeks or so ago, Transco had to fit a new gas main to our house, meaning that we would be without hot water, central heating and cooking facilities for four days.
For those four days we moved into one of the apartments at Croft Mill in the middle of Hebden Bridge and, I have to say, we were very impressed.
During many years working as a travel brochure photographer I have stayed in some excellent accommodation in my time, but this was up there with the best.
The level of finish throughout was of a very high standard, (non-slamming drawers in the solid oak furniture being my favourite example), the complementary welcome pack of food was vast and all either locally-produced, fairtrade or organic, and to top it all, the hospitality of Josephine, our host, was first-rate.
The owners have also worked hard to minimise the building's impact of the environment, even going as far as relplacing halogen lights for LED bulbs in the apartments.
If you have anyone coming to visit Hebden for a short stay, whether business or pleasure, looking for something a little bit above our local B&Bs, I can thoroughly recommend Croft Mill.
