Our Story

Heritage and luxury combine to send the senses spinning.

At first glance our aparthotel building takes you back to a time when gentlemen had cloth caps and ladies wore shawls – and both of those garments were made in the Bowers Mill. But then you step inside and the cutting-edge design and contemporary vibe bring you hurtling right back to the here and now.

The Mill

Write your own chapter in our Mill’s long history.

Built in the 18th century as a water powered fulling mill, Bowers Mill became both a corn mill and a woollen mill, before brothers, Joseph and Samuel Taylor, started manufacturing textiles in 1882.

Blending… spinning… weaving… scouring… dyeing… finishing… all the processes to produce cloth were carried out right here, until J & S Taylor moved premises in 1991.

The Hotel

Relax, unwind and enjoy the finer things in life.

There’s an undeniable romance to our mill’s rich industrial past, but our focus is very much on giving our guests an experience that’s all about today.

Step inside Bowers Mill now and you’ll find a luxuriously modern aparthotel that boasts eleven individually themed rooms. The mill may still be working, but you won’t notice. Just tell us whether you want a personalised service or privacy, and we’ll do everything to make your stay perfect.

Situated between Barkisland and Stainland in West Yorkshire, Bowers Mill is perfectly located for exploring Calderdale and beyond. Leeds and Manchester may be within easy access via the M62 motorway, but you’ll feel a world away.
