  • "We both loved this cottage, it was super comfy."

    The sheep at the kitchen window,I'm sure one winked at me. The area is stunning. After a good day out, the hot tub just relaxed us both, then a good night's sleep in a very comfortable bed. The little things made this cottage. Great hosts.

  • "We absolutely loved this cozy, high class, countryside setting, cottage."

    Especially looking out the kitchen window to see our friendly sheep. There are nice dog walks right outside the door. A really nice restaurant right up the road within walking distance. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short due to personal reasons but I would highly recommend this wonderful space, complete with hot tub. It is close to so many holiday opportunities with the Bronte museum within a short distance. You will have everything you need, all the comforts of home and then some. Leanne, the owner is especially helpful and attentive. Would love to come back! Full marks for value for money. Just fabulous!

  • "Had a great stay at Pickles Hill Cottage, it is such a lovely cosy cottage and the hot tub is just what you need after a long walk!"

    There’s also a pub just a short walk away and the lovely village Haworth which is only a 5 min drive or 40 min walk away. Leanne gave recommendations of places to visit on our welcome message which was super helpful, as we booked a last minute getaway so hadn’t planned what we were going to do. She even left use some brownies on check in and let us check out slightly later which was really appreciated. Would definitely recommend the cottage to family & friends. Thanks again for a lovely stay!

  • "Worst holiday cottage we have stayed in."

    Could not open key box on arrival.carpets stained,had no heating or hot water had to hunt the boiler eventually found it in the laundry room turned the boiler up.the laundry room was a fire hazard stuff all over the floor.the double bed was noisy everytime you moved.contacted the owner leanne with the complaints who is not a decent person who will listen.we actually stayed 3 nights instead of 7 worst unhappy holiday ever seeking £300 refund.

    Oh dear. Someone is upset they can’t have a refund because they had to leave early. Had you rang to say you had a boiler issue we would have come and resolved that quickly (just like we did when you couldn’t open the fully functioning key box ) rather than breaking into the laundry room yourself, just saves you any hassle. Not sure where the carpet stains were on inspection, but I can confirm all looking good there. I’m glad you enjoyed the wine & cake. Best wishes Leanne Property Owner

    Lovely walks to Bronte falls. Haworth isn't far away and is a lovely place to visit. The owners are so helpful and kept in touch by messaging checking everything was ok and helped us out when we had an issue that was nothing to do with the cottage. We would definitely return and highly recommend. Everything was as described.

    My husband, myself, my sister and the dog stayed for a week, and had a wonderful time. Cottage had everything we needed and more. Lovely and clean. 1 evening the lights went out and Jonny was round to fix them within 30 mins. Jonny and Leanne were perfect hosts. So funny being eye to eye with a sheep, while washing up. Perfect Location, we went to Haworth, Harrogate and Skipton, as well as a trip to Manchester for the "Coronation Street Experience". We would love to come back,

  • "This is an absolute gem of a cottage in a gorgeous location - the hot tub really is the cherry on the top."

    We had a fabulous stay here as a family of 3 (one 4 year old child) and can't rate the cottage highly enough. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for a great holiday. The cottage itself feels very rural - especially with the sheep watching you cook your breakfast through the back window - and is small enough to feel cosy but big enough to house 3 people comfortably. There is a 30 minute walk into Oakworth with lovely views, and our little boy managed the walks nearby very well. The local pub - The Grouse - is also top notch and only 10 minutes walk down the road. The hosts are also very kind and helpful. Honestly one of our favourite places we have ever stayed in the UK.

    Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and the owners are on hand on the rare occasion you may need them. Everything is provided for a relaxing break and there is even a great pub - The Grouse- within easy walking distance should you not wish to cook every night. The hot tub is an added bonus to ease aching muscles after a long(or short!) walk. I would recommend this cottage to anyone needing a break away from it all for a while. Thanks to Leanne and Johnny for providing this little gem of a cottage.

  • "Prior to posting any review, I read others’ reviews to see if their experience mirrored mine."

    Pickles Hill Cottage has only been around for a relatively short time, hence the reviews are fewer than one might expect. In anticipation of this review I read the reviews last night, and I refreshed them this morning to discover there are now fewer to read! Missing are one or two from 2020 in which, although being as positive as those now present, had a couple of suggestions to make things better. Nothing that would put anyone off, just an observation/suggestion. I don’t know why this has occurred. I don’t know if it’s Sykes or the owner that’s responsible, but I do know that there appears to be some pages missing from the Visitor’s Book in the cottage.

  • "Super comfortable cottage with good facilities and many little extras not always provided by other holiday cottages."

    Stunning views across to Penistone. A perfect location for walkers. Located one mile outside Oakworth and one and half mile walk to Haworth down footpaths alongside the river Worth. Top Withens and Penistone Crag can be walked directly from the cottage. We highly recommend this cottage in a beautiful setting.

The property

Oakworth 1.3 miles.

Enjoying a wonderful position within the picturesque Worth Valley, which was made famous by the classic 1970 film, The Railway Children is Pickles Hill Cottage, situated on the outskirts of Oakworth village.

This delightful accommodation boasts beautiful views over Haworth Moors and is perfect for couples or small families to explore West Yorkshire and its magnitude of pretty towns and villages, as well as the North Yorkshire National Park.

Enter into the warmth of the cottage and be welcomed into the sitting room, where the exposed beams frame the traditional-style furnishings, complemented by a gas coal-effect fire, making a tranquil spot to return to at the end of an adventure-filled day.

Joining this space is the dining table, where you and your loved ones can gather to tuck into a home-cooked meal that was prepared in the well-equipped kitchen.

Afterwards, look forward to catching your rest in one of the two bedrooms; choose from a double bedroom with elegant furnishings and a single bedroom, ideally set up for a child.

Soak up the countryside surroundings further, by taking dining outdoors on the patio, where you can catch a glimpse of the sunset while soaking in the bubbling hot tub.

If you can tear yourself away from this quaint abode, head into the village of Oakworth, where you will find a plethora of amenities, including a choice of pubs and a shop for picking up the essentials.

The wonderful country pub The Grouse Inn is only 400 yards away from the cottage and offers a 10% discount on food to guests of the cottage.

Alternatively, travel slightly further afield to Keighley where you will find a larger selection of pubs, restaurants, cafés and tearooms, offering something to suit all tastes, as well as providing access to the attractions of Cliffe Castle Museum and Park, offering a variety of local history and heritage.

Be sure to visit the nearby village of Haworth, famous for being the home of the Bronte sisters and the inspiration for many of their famous novels, as well as a variety of quaint eateries for refuelling before exploring the surrounding moorland.

Alternatively, head to Skipton, where you will find charming cobbled streets and the 12th-century castle, while further afield is the interesting old Calderdale town of Hebden Bridge with its hippy culture.

Adventurous guests may climb the peak of Ilkley Moor, a moorland and conservation area with several scenic walking trails, providing excellent bird watching opportunities and scenic viewpoints, or head to the Yorkshire Dales National Park to find more walking spots.

About the location


Haworth 1 mile; Skipton 10 miles.

Oakworth is a small Pennine village just a short drive from Haworth, overlooking the Worth Valley, made famous by the filming of the classic 1970 film version of E.E. Nesbitt's novel, The Railway Children. Besides its close proximity to Haworth and the moors, Oakworth has an attractive ornamental park, and is within easy reach of the town of Keighley. Nearby Haworth was home to the famous Bronte sisters, who were much-inspired by the surrounding moorland. Haworth has a myriad of curiosity and antique 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. Nearby, the famous Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, makes a lovely day out, with a regular service to the old village of Oxenhope. The area is full of popular places to visit, including the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the Museum of Rail. The market town of Skipton, Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate, and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
