Nestled in the heart of Calder Valley at the Yorkshire-Lancashire border in The Pennines, Todmorden is a creative town with impressive architecture, great places to eat and drink and beautiful countryside on its doorstep. Todmorden holiday cottages are an excellent choice for anyone who wants to experience life in an unspoiled West Yorkshire community with easy access to Calderdale's rugged hills and valleys. This ancient Pennine market town, whose name means ‘valley of the marsh fox’, sits on the banks of the River Calder, which marks the historic boundary between Yorkshire and Lancashire. It is surrounded by moorland and gritstone outcrops at the meeting point of three steep Pennine valleys and is a popular base for walking, fell running, mountain-biking and bouldering along the Pennine Way and Calderdale Way. It has a rich history as a centre for the cotton trade and was once home to the world’s largest weaving shed. Today, Todmorden is home to many artists and its narrow streets are dotted with independent galleries and workshops such as Cheeky Sew and Sew, Barearts and The Water Street Gallery.
