    Nothing I would change.

  • "Loved the little cottage, facilities clean and well kept."

    The downstairs was a very social space. Upstairs was lovely just could do with a proper bed in 2nd bedroom and velux blackout blind ( but we were aware that it was a pullout sofa bed). Would stay again!! Thank you

  • "We had a lovely 2 day stay, and enjoyed visiting the local park and farm with our 5 year old son."

    He also enjoyed his bedroom and the curtain into Mummy & Daddy's room! From the listing we expected the location to be closer to Haworth than it actually was. The homemade cake on arrival was a lovely touch, and much appreciated.

    Thoughtfully well stocked with all sorts of little details - extra towels for the dog for example! Great location for visiting a range of local places and walks, like Haworth, Shibden Hall and Hardcastle Craggs. Owner very responsive and all instructions really clear. Would definitely recommend!

    Instantly relaxed into holiday mode. Very well equipped and exceptionally clean. Plenty of books to browse through as well as entertainment. Great base to visit all of the area, a list of places to visit is provided. Highly recommend those on the list. Very friendly owner who is only too willing if help is needed. Loved every minute of holiday.

    The cottage was lovely, well equipped, warm and perfectly clean ready for us. We enjoyed two unexpected days ‘snowed in’ but a perfect place to chill and play games with the park across the road and plenty of shops in walking distance. Thanks for sharing your lovely cottage.

  • "A repeat stay for us at Butterfly Cottage."

    A warm, cosy, comfortable cottage, within easy reach of the lovely Yorkshire countryside but also close to the bustle of Bradford or Leeds for all they have to offer. The pleasant little park opposite is so handy for dog walking to complement the enclosed rear garden. Jenny, the host, couldn't be more helpful.

  • "We loved the cottage in Clayton."

    The furnishings were exactly what we wanted in a small, friendly community with easy access to the countryside and Leeds. Full stocked, great little back patio, and comfortable rooms. Up to date kitchen and bath, but with the feel of a older row cottage. Everything you need for a short stay is available in town and the nearby park is great for morning walks.

  • "We had a lovely week staying at this cottage."

    We are a family of four with two kids. The cottage is really clean and spacious and has everything you could need and more. I really liked the way the house is decorated and it has everything you need with going on holiday with kids. There is small back garden that you can eat in and there is a small park in front of the house. Jenny was really helpful when we arrived and left some biscuits, wine and milk for us. Clayton is a nice area on the outskirts of Bradford with local shops and pubs. Tescos is only a five minute drive away. It is a great base to explore parts of Yorkshire and we visited Bolton Abbey, Hardcastle Crags, Castle Howard, Newby Hall and Roundhay Park in Leeds. We felt the house was really good value for money and would recommend it for couples or families.

The property

This beautiful Victorian terrace is situated in the village of Clayton, near Haworth, almost equidistant to the Yorkshire Dales and Peak District National Parks.

Built in 1851, Butterfly Cottage is now a wonderful, vibrant holiday home with modern touches making it perfect for couples and young families.

A bright, spacious living area stretches across the length of the property, providing a lovely, sociable space for cooking and relaxing together.

At the front of the room, the sitting area has a large bookcase filled with interesting reads and a comfy armchair by a living-flame gas fire.

Meanwhile, the kitchen is fully equipped for all your culinary needs and enjoys a pretty view over the patio garden.

After a busy day, two bedrooms upstairs offer a great night’s sleep!

The master room has plenty of hanging space, a double bed and a view of Victoria Park across the road, while the second bedroom has Velux windows and double doors opening to a Juliet balcony over the back garden.

In the large, modern bathroom, a long soak in the P-shaped bath is the perfect remedy for aching muscles after an invigorating walk.

The south-facing garden is a delightful place to enjoy the sunshine and happy sound of birdsong over breakfast, lunch or dinner in the sunshine.

On the opposite side of the park is a good pub, and the village supermarket is only a 10-minute walk away where you can pick up the week’s essentials.

Just eight miles from Haworth, Clayton sits in the centre of Bronte Country.

With beautiful countryside at your fingertips, the area is perfect for walkers and cyclists.

The World Heritage Site of Saltaire is a short drive away, a fascinating place to visit with many restaurants, craft and gift shops, as well as the fabulous art on display at the Salt Mills.

The lovely market town of Hebden Bridge, a half hour drive away, is full of interesting shops and places to eat.

Further afield, you can easily visit Skipton, Harrogate, Ilkley, Leeds or the stunning, walled city of York.

A truly wonderful holiday cottage!

It has a small supermarket, a butchers, bakers, 4 pubs, a library, cricket club, park and fabulous walks in the spectacular landscape nearby. At the centre of the village is a park with crown green bowling, lovely gardens, seating and a small play area for children. There is a cricket field and plenty of local walks to discover.

The city has a large amount of Victorian architecture which includes City Hall, the Cathedral, The Alhambra Theatre, The Wool Exchange, Cartwright Hall (where there is a permanent David Hockney Exhibition) It is a UNESCO City of Film and has the National Science and Media Museum. A short drive would take you to the World Heritage Site of Saltaire. This is named after Sir Titus Salt who built a textile mill, known as Salts Mill with the Victorian Industrial model village situated on the River Aire, making a great place to visit at any time of the year. The popular village of Haworth, home of the Bronte sisters, is only eight miles away, with lots of independent shops and places to eat, as well cobbled streets and alleys to explore and the Bronte Parsonage.
