Welcome to Daisy Bank Camp

Hello! We’re Angie & Andrew Mossman, welcome to Daisy Bank Camp, a rural retreat set in the hills above Hebden Bridge.          

It's been a long-held dream of ours to create a space for people to come and immerse themselves in all that Calder Valley and the South Pennines has to offer – fabulous characterful towns & villages, stunning views, world famous walks, bike trails for all abilities and wonderful wildlife. Our aim with Daisy Bank Camp is create a special place of peace, where you can re-connect with nature and each other. Set within a rural hillside setting at 1000ft above sea level, it can be as wild as its wants outside but its oh so cosy within.

 

Self catering cabins

*****Stable Cabins now open for booking, click 'Stay Here' to book*****

We have 6 cabins for you here at Daisy Bank Camp, and two types of accommodation: the Stable Cabins for 2 people, and the Honeycomb Cabins, which sleep 4. They have been built to the highest standards, with superior insulation and sound proofing, making them the perfect location for all year-round get-aways.

The Honeycomb Cabins are detached, wooden clad hexagons, fully self contained and filled with features to create your comfortable haven: double bed and double sofa bed, underfloor heating, a micro kitchen equipped with induction hob, fridge and full oven and a shower room with sink and toilet. 2 huge bi-fold glass doors take you outside where you’ll find a seating area from which to enjoy the peace. Each have 1 allocated car park space. 

The Stable Cabins are a terrace of 3 hardwood clad cabins, with uninterrupted views to the east to catch all the sunrises, and open to the eaves with a huge half glazed stable door. They are self contained and designed to create the ultimate private den: double sofa bed, stowaway table and chairs, underfloor heating, a micro kitchen equipped with induction hob, fridge and combi microwave oven, plus a wet room & toilet. Outside, you’ll find a seating area and a private terraced garden. Each have 1 allocated car park space.

Birds & Wildlife

The woods and moors are full of numerous birds and wildlife for you to experience from the doorstep of your cabin: Short Eared Owls, Barn Owls, Tawny and Little owls; Kestrels nest each year in the large pine tree on the South side, the Curlew, Lapwing and Oyster Catchers herald our Springtime, Summer is full of the calls of Meadow Pipit and Skylark, and the thistle banks are alive with colour with the most wonderful display of butterflies. Deer come down to drink from Daisy Bank Clough most mornings, so if you wake with the sun, look out over the moor to the South and you might catch a glimpse. 

Ideal for Walkers and Bike Enthusiasts

For the bike enthusiasts brought into our area by the Tour de France & Yorkshire, try out our numerous bike trails, Sustrans National Route 68 is on your doorstep, there’s a bike wash and racks for when you get back. The Pennines is rightly famous for its wonderful walks, including the Calderdale & Pennine Ways which are within a mile or so of Daisy Bank Camp, as is the Mary Townley Loop. There’s also a regular bus service 15 minutes’ walk away, and we are only 10 minutes’ drive from Hebden Bridge, Heptonstall or Todmorden, and 30 minutes from Howarth, home of the Brontës. If you’d like to spend some time with a local expert, we’ve also partnered with local walking and biking businesses to help you get the very best our hills and valleys have to offer. 

Sustainability & Permaculture

Daisy Bank Camp in set in the grounds of a permaculture smallholding which specialises in rare native breed sheep and we have designed the camp with a sustainable heart. Throughout the site you'll see recycled materials given a new lease of life and saved from landfill, including several huge tree stumps happily hosting flowers and numerous other lifeforms! The water is from our private supply, purified and delicious, no chemicals. We deal with all our own waste water on site, again without chemicals and our heating design, although currently LPG, is ready for Biomass in the very near future, with Solar Thermal & Photo Voltaic also planned – our aim is to be fossil fuel free as soon as possible. Electric car charging points are also planned soon. Our own home reared, pasture fed beef and lamb is sometimes available for you to buy, along with other local and home-made produce, as the season allows.

Funding

Daisy Bank Camp is very grateful to have received grants to support the conversion of the stables and the construction of 3 high specification detached 'honeycomb' cabins for visitor accommodation. It is part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
