About the home
Coiners' Barn is a haven for walkers and lovers of the great outdoors. We offer superior, self contained B&B or self catering accommodation in a spectacular location with panoramic views on the edge of Broadhead Clough Nature Reserve.
The Barn has 3 beautiful ensuite rooms with under floor heating along with the luxury of your own huge living / dining area and fully equipped kitchen. Access is by foot only (safe parking 1 mile away) or 4x4; close to the Pennine and Calderdale Ways.
Our guests come to us to get away from the hustle and bustle of normal life and enjoy the tranquillity, nature and stunning vistas we have to offer. Fancy a real luxury rural retreat? Then come to Coiners' Barn and let us show you how it is done.
We are called Coiners' Barn as Bell House (the house right next door to the barn) was home to ‘King’ David Hartley, leader of the notorious Cragg Vale Coiners during the late 18th century. Eventually hanged at Tyburn, near York in 1770 Hartley coordinated an elaborate operation of coin clipping in remote hilltop farms across the local area. The edges of coins were clipped and then melted down before being stamped as ‘new' coins. These coins were put back into circulation by unscrupulous local publicans, The effect was almost disastrous for the English economy – and forced a local Excise Officer – William Deighton to investigate. Deighton was murdered in Halifax on 8th November 1769. The subsequent betrayal within the coining gang led to their various downfalls and King David’s demise. There are many interesting takes of the coiners story - come and visit us to find out some more about this story and our historical links.

Further details indoors:
The Barn has been newly converted and is of a very high standard. Throughout it is geo thermally heated and is very light and cosy. The bedrooms pick up the history of the barn as a key coiners home with a Kings room, Stag room and Weavers room. Downstairs the living space is open plan and split level with its own dining area (seating 8 - 10) as well as sliding doors opening out on to a large decking area which overlooks a beautiful country garden with a small play area (including sand pit, climbing rock and a shared trampoline and wendy house). The patio doors next to the kitchen open onto a BBQ area/ We also have an 8 seater outside wooden round table and more graden chairs. The insides tell you more about the history with a Coiners poem, timeline map and a whiteboard to let us know what nature you've seen that day as well as many interesting books and artifacts.
Further details outdoors:

The Northern England / Yorkshire/Yorkshire Dales region
The countryside of Yorkshire has acquired the common nickname of God's Own County.
Pennine Yorkshire encompasses some of the region's most beautiful countryside. From the moorlands of Haworth and Todmorden and the culturally diverse Huddersfield and Halifax to the bustling bohemian towns of Hebden Bridge and Holmfirth, Pennine Yorkshire's distinctive and diverse landscape offers a beautiful and unique destination for short breaks or a romantic getaway.
The Hebden Bridge / Cragg Vale area
Coiners' Barn is right in the middle of the Calderdale Way and Pennine Way. With both these walking links on our doorstep we are a perfect spot to stop over for a night or make us a base for visiting the local area.
Walkers are invited to explore Broadhead Clough Nature reserve, at the bottom of the field in front of Coiners' Barn, or visit Stoodley Pike - the monument built to mark the end of the Crimean War (1856) which is less than 2 miles away. Perhaps you are indeed walking the Pennine Way (Britain's first National Trail, opened in 1965) and wish to stop off at Coiners' Barn to rest the night. We also have great maps from Coiners' Barn around Cragg Vale, taking in many of the Coiners' haunts and our own Medieval Spa.
Only an hour's walk away and you can reach Hebden Bridge or Hardcastle Craggs.
Hebden Bridge has been named the community with the most varied and locally distinct high street in the UK. Its unique offering of well over 100 independent shops, galleries and places to eat, make this a great day out from the Barn. Why not get Liz to prepare a picnic for you if you fancy a lunch with a view?
Hardcastle Craggs, owned by the National Trust is a great place to explore 2 miles north east of Hebden (3 miles from Coiners' Barn). This beautiful wooded valley with its deep ravines, tumbling streams and glorious waterfalls. Walk through woodland rich in wildlife with over 25 miles of footpaths and see the striking seasonal changes in the plants and trees. At its heart is Gibson Mill, a former cotton mill and entertainment emporium, now a visitor centre using sustainable energy, where you can discover more about the valley's 200-year history with dressing up and exhibitions. There are also themed walks, and guided tours of Gibson Mill to enjoy. Note: steep paths throughout.
Mytholmroyd Station is our closest rail link. You can be in Leeds or Manchester city centre in around 50 minutes by train, while direct trains to York and Blackpool make family days out easy-peasy with children of all ages.
The market towns of Haworth, Holmfirth and Heptonstall (where King David is buried) are only a short drive away and complemented by museums and attractions across the region that tell the varied history of Pennine Yorkshire through the ages.
