Where to Eat, Sleep and Explore in the Beautiful Market Town of Huddersfield
Huddersfield is a large and beautiful market town known for the founding of the Rugby League in 1895
The Manor House Lindley is a gorgeous Grade II-listed building with two fantastic restaurants and three bars to pick from. The Rusty Bull in the grounds of Britain’s oldest farm shop, Hinchliffe’s Farm, is another top tier choice, especially for a cracking full English rustled up with local produce. If you fancy variety, go for Home On Lindley with its inventive British tapas.
Thornes Cottage is a pretty one-bedroom apartment with plenty of modern luxuries. The Retreat at Plover Cottage is another homely option, only much closer to the town centre for quick access to the shops. For a touch of elegance, The Stables provides a gorgeous stay in a picturesque location.
Byram Arcade (also known as The Makers’ Arcade), located in the heart of Huddersfield, is a Victorian arcade housing a variety of independent retailers, including jewellery makers The Guild, Crafty Praxis artisan gift shop, a beautiful florists in Le Fleur, and a cracking bottle shop – Arcade Craft Beer & Liquor.
Why not kick off your shoes and enjoy some spa time? We recommend the Titanic Spa, the UK’s first eco spa with its indulgent treatment menu, or Alexandra House Spa, a must-visit retreat tucked away on the outskirts of the town. Once refreshed, you’d be remiss to not check out some great trails in this famed walking location – Castle Hill’s grounds spring to mind, as well as Armitage Bridge Circular, a 6.8 kilometre loop trail with gorgeous views over Holme Valley, Castle Hill, and Emley Moor Tower.
