Are you coming to one of our courses in Todmorden? Listed below are some places to eat, drink and stay that we are happy to recommend.

Places Locally to Stay

Secluded Glamping

Our farm is hidden in a deeply wooded valley of Jumble Hole Clough – halfway between Todmorden and Hebden.

We’d love you to come and glamp with us – and we can offer a 6 metre bell tent with a futon and / or a bijou vintage caravan.

We have a meditation and yoga room you are also welcome to use. We can take up to five people if you are happy to share. The valley is tucked away and the only sounds you’ll hear are the owls or waterfall.

We have a compost loo, an outdoor shower or you can swim or paddle in the river below your camp! In the evenings you might want to sit round a campfire or wander into the woods. Despite being hidden away, it’s only a 15 minute walk to the nearest road – from which there are regular busses to Hebden and Todmorden (which takes 10 minutes).

We ask for £20pp a night – but if you only want one night we ask for £25. We can provide breakfast and dinner if you’d like – at a cost of £10 a day. Contact May on 07949 305613 or
