A Nice Place to Stay - and help animals...
Nothing to do with the House of York...
Yesterday I was over at the Tia Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue kennels and among other things was shown the beautiful holiday apartment they have just opened. It's in part of a stone farm building which I guess dates from the 17th century or thereabouts.
The location, near Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, has a remote moorland feel to it - indeed the wind yesterday put me in mind of Wuthering Heights - but in a car it's actually not that far from a lot of places, including Haworth and the Bronte Country, the Yorkshire Dales, Bolton Abbey, York, Skipton, etc., etc. On the other hand, if you like moorland walking it's ideal for that too, and not a million miles away from the Pennine Way.
Prices are reasonable and money raised, after running costs, goes to supporting the 80 dogs in Tia's care. And get this - not only can you take your dog with you, you can even take your horse. (They have a couple of nice shires about the place.)
A very nice leaflet is available from Tia Greyhound & Lucher Rescue, PO Box 101, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, HX7 9AD. Or phone 07974 960684 for information and availability. If you fancy a holiday in Yorkshire, please consider this option.
