William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy were visitors to this period property in Triangle, near Sowerby Bridge, as their aunt lived there.

The poet would no doubt be pleased to see the mid-18th century house vastly improved thanks to a stylish makeover by the latest owners. They have refurbished the whole property, while retaining the period features. They have also added an orangery, which brings in natural light and beautiful views of the extensive gardens.
