Come and enjoy the peace and quiet of our Pennine farm house, which is surrounded by beautiful gardens and situated over 1000 feet above sea level. We are a working sheep farm and take bookings from March to the end of November.

Badger Fields  Farm is on the outskirts of Blackshaw Head, and is approximately two miles from the Pennine town of Hebden Bridge, and halfway between Halifax and Burnley.  The farm is easily located from the main road named Badger Lane which runs through Blackshaw Head, up a tarmac drive. The views from the farmhouse are spectacular, over surrounding hills and valleys. The Pennine Way footpath runs through the farm's fields and the Calderdale Way is only half a mile away. There is also a Bridleway path, named the Mary Townley loop, which passes close by the farm. Visit Tiredboots,a Walking Accommodation guide, for more information about long distance footpaths.


The farm is run in an eco-friendly manner using home grown vegetables and fruit when preparing food for guests.  A wind turbine supplies our premises with electricity.

Check in can be between 4 and 6 p.m.  Alternatively you are welcome to contact us at least 24 hours in advance of your stay to arrange a specific and mutually convenient arrival time between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Breakfast is available from 7 a.m. To 8.30 a.m. and can vary from a continental to a full cooked breakfast.  If you need to leave early a light packed breakfast can be provided. If required a good packed lunch can be provided.  Check out time is 10.00 a.m. on the day of departure.

We can offer secure off road parking and we operate a No Smoking policy inside the house.
