About this location

The West Yorkshire region

We are located in the Colne Valley which is a delight for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers with miles of footpaths over moors, along the canal and neighboring valleys.

The Huddersfield Narrow Canal runs through the center of Slaithwaite and the adjacent footpaths are popular for walking to Huddersfield and The Standedge Tunnel at Marsden with its visitor center and cafe.

Travel a little further and visit the popular towns of Holmfith and Hebden Bridge or the cosmoplitan cities of Leeds, York, Manchester and Harrogate.


The village of Slaithwaite boasts a ton of places well worth a visit, from the Handmade Bakery to the Green Valley Grocer (ideal to stock up on essentials ahead of a family meal in the cottage). There are plenty of places to pick up great value food and drink, including Aldi and the Co-op, as well as a post office, swimming pool and leisure centre and a train station in the village centre offering convenient links to the surrounding area.

Here are some other places worth a visit in the village and surrounding area.

The Emporium/The Gallery - Vintage clothes and finds along with a Gallery displaying local work. Located in the village centre.

Cobweb - Offering beautiful Antiques and reconditioned furniture along with gifts for every occasion.

Handmade bakery - Along the canal side, a artisan bakery with a café.

Vanilla Bean - Café/Bistro serving food and drink throughout the day and evening.

Standedge Tunnel visitors centre - Britain's longest canal tunnel open to visitors featuring a café and exhibition along with barge trips.
