Stephenson House - Gorgeous Accommodation in Hebden Bridge that Sleeps 12

*This post has been written as part of a press trip to Calderdale. See my disclosure policy for details.

A few week's ago we stayed at the glorious Stephenson House in Hebden Bridge, Calderdale. Calderdale is only around a 2.5 hour drive from Newcastle and is a beautiful part of West Yorkshire. Stephenson House is perfect for an extended family stay, for birthday celebrations or for walking groups too. With five bedrooms and bathrooms, a large family room with a pool table and wood burning stove, ample parking, extended gardens and summerhouse plus large kitchen, utility room and dining room, there's ample space for up to 12 guests.

We received such a warm welcome with a homemade cake using apples from the garden. The kitchen was a kitchen of dreams with integrated appliances, plenty of surface space, everything you could need plus a separate utilty room too. The kids loved pulling a stool up to the breakfast bar in the morning whilst Steve cooked for us. 

The dining room is a grand affair with a long extending table which will be perfect for family meals and get togethers. I can just picture us all sitting down to a Sunday roast in this room. 

There's not one but two family rooms which worked really well for us. The kids would play with their toys and the pool table in the larger room and we could relax with a nice glass of wine and magazine in the other.

This house is the PERFECT place to play hide and seek. The kids spent hours doing just this and were also super chuffed to find a little snug hidden by a window upstairs where they could play chess. The beauty of this house is that whilst there are plenty of places to bring family and friends together, there are also ample opportunities for you to hide away and do your own thing if you want to.

Stephenson House has been thoughtfully designed with families in mind. From reading nooks and story books to jigsaws, family recipes and a chest full of board games. There's so much to keep you all entertained. There is free and decent WiFi and Netflix too.

It's also the perfect place to relax. With fresh flowers, magazines, stunning fireplaces, gorgeous bathrooms, four poster beds and rolling countryside views, it would be difficult not to. 

In all honesty, Stephenson House was far too big for just the five of us but we'd love to return one day with my brother and parents, it is probably the best self-catering accommodation we've ever stayed in and I would highly recommend if you're looking for group accommodation for a weekend away.
