The property

A stone-built, Victorian, end-terrace cottage on a quiet lane approximately 150 yards from the cobbled main street with shops, pubs and restaurants in Haworth, Yorkshire.

A great central location, ideal for a family or group of friends to get together and really enjoy discovering the many delights of this historic and beautiful corner of the Yorkshire Dales.

Fully renovated by the current owners who have done a great job to produce a first-class holiday home and retain much of the original character of the cottage.

On entering the cottage, guests will be immediately impressed with the stripped pine flooring and the original decorative features throughout the hallway.

The adjoining sitting room is a real delight and features a fireplace containing a welcoming woodburning stove, lovely furnishings and a stripped pine floor.

Walk through to the rear dining room (seating for 6), with a feature fireplace with woodburning stove, an original York stone floor, original feature brick wall and original stripped pine wall cupboards.

The room also doubles up as a snug with a delightful chaise and rocking chair for extra comfort, an ideal place to relax after a day out on the wild and rugged fells and to admire the long distance views from the rear of the property out across the Worth Valley.

From the dining area leads the well-equipped kitchen, which also has a storage area for bikes and hiking gear.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, the rear bedroom enjoying wonderful views of the Worth Valley and features a king-size vintage pine bed and an original decorative fireplace.

The second main bedroom features a further king-size bed, with the third bedroom being a twin.

The main bathroom has a lovely relaxing bath and separate shower unit.

The rear courtyard area has a patio with furniture, where you can relax with a refreshing drink or dine alfresco.

The courtyard also has private off road parking.

An easy flat level walk leads to the historic high street, steeped in literary history and formerly home to the Bronte sisters.

Haworth has much to offer including traditional pubs, restaurants, old curiosity shops and cafes.

An excellent variety of walks, both easy and strenuous, allow visitors to follow in the footsteps of Catherine and Heathcliff by wandering the fantastic rugged moorland.

Skipton is nearby, with its cobbled streets and delightful castle, while further afield is the Victorian spa town of Harrogate.

A charming cottage, perfect for exploring all this lovely area has to offer.

About the location

HAWORTH

Skipton 10 miles; Hebden Bridge 10 miles.

The small village of Haworth was home to the famous Bronte sisters, who were inspired by the surrounding moorland to pen their novels, which have become classics of English Literature. Haworth is a village that time almost forgot, with its myriad of curiosity and antique shops, alleyways and cobbled streets creating a wonderful period atmosphere, all set against a framing backdrop of countryside famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights as wild, rugged and barren. Nearby, the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, provides a lovely day out with a regular service to the old village of Oxenhope. The area abounds with popular places to visit, including the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the National Railway Museum in York. The market town of Skipton, often fondly regarded as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
