Hebden Bridge Wins Great British High Street Award


Hip Hip Hooray for Hebden Bridge!





Fantastic news that Hebden Bridge has won the Great British High Street Competition in the Small Market Town category. We’d like to send our congratulations to all the shops, cafes, pubs, organisations and businesses in the town who have worked so incredibly hard this year to achieve this – and to the Hebden Bridge Business Forum for spearheading the campaign. What an amazing story and what a heroic achievement.

Well done – and a huge thank you from us and our guests here at Elmet Farmhouse. We really appreciate what you’ve done since the floods to rejuvenate Hebden Bridge. It’s looking absolutely great and has taken on a new lease of life. It’s a real pleasure to shop, drink and dine in this wonderful town and to sample its outstanding facilities. We can’t think of a nicer place to live and our guests think so too! 

Here are just a few recent comments about Hebden Bridge a from guests staying at Elmet Farmhouse this year…
