Welcome to The Alma Inn

The Alma Inn is a traditional countryside pub with guest rooms, set in an idyllic rural location in the hamlet of Cottonstones, near Sowerby Bridge, Halifax. Offering a warm Yorkshire welcome to visitors for around 150 years, The Alma Inn has earned a reputation as one of Calderdale’s finest traditional countryside inns, with open fires, stone-flagged floors and an abundance of charm and character.

We host a selection of hand-pulled real ales alongside an extensive drinks menu. Our 5 guest bedrooms offer the perfect escape for a short break or overnight stay.

“Every species has its pub, ours is The Alma Inn.”


The Alma Inn has five en-suite guest bedrooms which have been refurbished to a high standard and offer sweeping views across the Ryburn Valley. Our idyllic location is the perfect base from which to explore the local area, with the Calderdale Way offering miles of footpaths and bridleways across the unspoilt West Yorkshire countryside.

The rooms are split into 3 doubles with comfortable king-size beds, 1 twin with 2 single beds, and 1 family room, which features a double bed as well as a quirky and semi-private cabin-style single bed, perfect for families..

All rooms are equipped with tea and coffee making facilities and colour TV. Cots can be supplied on request.
