Local attractions

Oats Royd Mill self-catering apartments are just minutes from some of the Pennine region’s best attractions:

Pennine Way

At Oats Royd Mill you are just a 10 minute walk from this famous national trail. The Pennine Way has something to offer every long distance walker. You want to test your stamina and endurance? This is a 270-mile walk that will take you from the Peak District National Park along the Pennine ridge through the Yorkshire Dales, up into Northumberland, across the Cheviots, setting you down in the Scottish Borders. Fortunately for less adventurous walkers, the Pennine Way can also be enjoyed in small sections, with something to suit everyone.

Hebden Bridge

Wander the creative, bohemian streets of Hebden Bridge, and you can feel the influence of the writers and artists who flocked to the village in the 70s and 80s. From artisan shops and inspiring galleries to organic pavement cafés and charming picture houses, the village is justifiably proud of its artistic identity. And just a few moments away are pretty wooded valleys and picturesque heather moorland aplenty.
