The property

A beautiful, stone-built, former stables and hayloft building set next to the owner's home in an elevated rural location overlooking the valley of Trawden.

10 miles from Skipton and Haworth.

Set on a high moorland location, with fabulous views in almost every direction, this is the perfect location to get away from it all and enjoy splendid country living, waking up each day to the horse and the resident, tame sheep.

From the moment you walk into this beautiful holiday home you will be impressed by many things, not least the owner’s attention to detail, the wonderful styling and the quirky design of this first-class accommodation.

Guests enter from the private parking area past the pretty little garden area and through an entrance porch into the upper ground floor which has been split into three spaces and combines many of the original ceiling beams with new and contemporary fixtures and fittings.

The first bedroom contains a super king-size bed (which can be a twin on request) with en-suite shower room and the second main bedroom a king-size bed, freestanding bath, separate WC and a wonderful Juliet balcony with lovely views out across the paddock and across to the moorland.

The third space on the upper ground floor has been dedicated to a snug area with a multi-games table incorporating air hockey, table football and pool, and board games.

The upper floor is partly open to the lower ground floor and guests descend a bespoke staircase with homemade balustrade to the lower ground floor living area, containing the kitchen, sitting and dining area and a separate cloakroom area with basin and WC.

The cosy woodburner, set into a beautiful stone chimney, is a real feature with the main chimney going up through the centre of the building, an interesting feature and one of many in this beautiful holiday home.

Light the fire, take a comfortable seat and take in the lovely exposed stonework, the original A-frame ceiling beams and the wrought iron features, including a most interesting horseshoe effect on the main wall.

Two patio doors provide a bright and cheery feel to the room and lead out onto a spacious patio area with barbecue and a chiminea, once again, a great place to be to take in the 270 degree views.

guests can sit on the Rattan patio set, under the glass roof, in total privacy whilst enjoying the mood lighting, a drink and taking in the far distance views of the dramatic moorlands.

A stairway from the patio takes guests back to the upper car parking area.

There are excellent walks and cycle tracks from the doorstep whilst nearby the Wycoller Country Park offer great walking opportunities.

Steeped in literary history and formerly home to the Bronte Sisters, nearby Haworth has traditional pubs, restaurants and cafes, and a variety of walks, allowing visitors to follow in the footsteps of Catherine and Heathcliff and wander the fantastic rugged moorland.

Skipton is nearby, with its cobbled streets and delightful castle making this cottage a truly great place to be whatever the time of year.

Please note there is a £200 good housekeeping bond for this property

About the location


Haworth 10 miles; Skipton 11.7 miles; Harrogate 35 miles.

Trawden is a small village in the Trawden Forest parish of Pendle, at the foot of Boulsworth Hill, on the border land between Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales. Boulsworth Hill is a large expanse of moorland, the highest point of the South Pennines of south-eastern Lancashire, England, separating the District of Pendle from Calderdale. Its summit, Lad Law, is 1,696 ft (517 m) above sea level, and commands views over Pendle Hill, the Forest of Bowland, the Yorkshire Dales and the South Pennines. On an exceptionally clear day it is possible to see Scafell Pike and Helvellyn to the north, High Peak to the south and Blackpool Tower to the west. The Brontë Way and the Pendle Way both pass along the slopes of Boulsworth Hill, providing routes across unspoilt moorland and pasture land. Agriculture was the main industry of the village and surrounding area, although it did have several cotton mills, most of which have now been demolished and converted into housing. As a way of encouraging people to visit Trawden and the surrounding area, a small group of village residents organise and mobilise other villagers in order to hold the annual Trawden Garden Festival and Scarecrow Trail. This takes place over the first weekend in July. Trawden also holds an annual agricultural show each August, which many farmers, riders and people from all around enjoy and take part in. Dating back to the 10th century, the area is famous for the ruins of Wycoller Hall where Charlotte Bronte set parts of her famous novel, Jane Eyre. Clapper Bridge is close to the ruins of Wycoller Hall and probably dates from the late 18th or early 19th century, whilst Clam Bridge is a single slab laid across Wycoller Beck and is more than 1000 years old and is listed as an Ancient Monument. A short drive brings you to nearby Haworth, 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 antiques shops, alleyways and cobbled streets creating a wonderful period atmosphere and all this against a backdrop of countryside famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights as wild, rugged and barren. Nearby the famous 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 market town of Skipton, Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive along one of the most scenic moorlands in the area, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
