IOU Hebden Bridge Hostel

Our independent accommodation for artists, visitors and community in the Calder Valley

The Hebden Bridge Hostel is an extension of the IOU Creation Centre and an unique way for IOU to engage with local residents and visitors to Calderdale and to support artists, creatives, and the cultural ecology of the region.

With 14 rooms sleeping up to 40 guests it provides space for artists to relax, plan a project, hold rehearsals or team away days – all set in the vibrant town of Hebden Bridge, surrounded by stunning gardens and woodlands and set close to the Pennine Way

For artists and creatives working in our Dean Clough studio and workshops it provides accessible overnight accommodation in private or shared rooms, all ensuite.

The Hostel is also home to our Artist in Residence. The Artist in Residency opportunity is open to artists specialising in any art form and interested in IOU’s approach. The residency includes living rent and bill free in a self contained artist apartment to develop their practice and create an art project in response to their time spent living at the Hostel.
