  • "Alison was a wonderful host who made every effort to ensure we were comfortable in her beautiful and very spacious cottage."

    When we asked for help with the heating as we were being a little dense about the thermostat, she immediately offered to come round and help us out and ended up building us a fire! The welcome gifts were also a lovely touch and much appreciated. Bedrooms were very comfortable and everything was spotless. A great find and we will certainly ask to stay again!

    Accommodation was spotlessly clean, plenty of room for 6 adults and the log burner was a real treat Ideal location to walk into Haworth, the moor walk to the waterfalls and top withins. Ilkley, Bolton abbey and Skipton are also in close proximity Ps our border collie loved the location

  • "We absolutely loved our stay in this cottage."

    It has absolutely everything you could possibly need during a short self catering stay and really felt like a home from home. It’s in a great location for going on lots of beautiful walks, and the log fire was welcomed to warm us up afterwards. The owners are so helpful and even put the heating on for our arrival. We would 100% recommend this cottage, great for families and although it doesn’t have a garden, the enclosed front area was fine for our dogs to have a bedtime wee.

  • "Greenfield Cottage was a delight to stay in."

    Pictures on website don’t do it justice! There’s nothing it doesn’t have! So very clean and comfortable. Beds were amazing! Enjoyed cosy nights in front of the log burner [starter pack included!] on comfy sofas. A Welcome Pack on our arrival was such a lovely touch - scones, jam, butter, milk, tea & coffee selection, Prosecco and fresh flowers too! Thank you Alison, such a lovely host and very quick to answer messages. Will return one day and definitely recommend to family and friends.

    It's a great base for exploring Bronte country, and the Yorkshire Dales.

  • "Super cottage- everything you needed was provided, and more!"

    Beautiful flowers inside, and pot plants outside. Extremely comfortable beds. No garden, but there was a public footpath a few yards up the hill where you could take the dogs. There was a little courtyard by the front door for outside space. Owner, Alison, was extremely helpful. We had to leave earlier than expected which was a real shame! Although the cottage sits by the roadside, we were not disturbed by the noise of the traffic. Lovely area for walking.

  • "It’s like stepping back in time at Greenfield Cottage!"

    This lovely & cosy ‘chocolate box’ cottage in the heart of the Yorkshire is a must if you’ve never visited these parts before. Everything you could possibly wish for is provided by Alison Scott & family. There’s lots of little personal touches, welcome package including scones, coffee tea etc, milk & prosecco. Freshly cut flowers Plenty of info for trips out, board games to play in front of wood burning fire (sadly not required for our august stay!) 3D tv for cinema nights. Our kids loved their own floor of the house (attic) equipped with gaming stations, books & toys. The beds are so comfy & the waterfall shower was bliss! Plenty of places to visit in the area. Our favourites included Ilkley, Holden Park, Cliff Castle & Museum & of course the historical Haworth & Bronte Parsonage which is a short enjoyable walk away from Oakworth, the views are amazing. We managed a couple of times to walk via Tim Lane & up the steep incline to Howarth but opted for taxis back via Bronte Taxis £4.50 back to the cottage - well worth it. Oakworth KWVR is also another ‘must do’ to view the beautiful steam engines where ‘The Railway Children’ was filmed. At the station is a lovely little ‘tea hut’ that sells fabulous ice cream. Our plan was to have a lovely relaxing break & that’s just what we got we were sorry to leave!!! Highly recommend.

    We had a lovely welcome pack with milk, tea, coffee and scones with jam and butter. Just what we needed, we also had a bottle of lovely Prosecco for the evening. The cleanliness was above and beyond, usually I have to clean first but no it was so clean. The beds were comfy and all the info was great, I made a cake with the kids on a rainy day, as the range cooker was excellent, and pancakes.. We played board games and had some family time. The Nintendo was a really lovely touch, my 18 year old loved it! So did I, but I wasn’t very good. Very relaxing time - loved it. Alison was so helpful too.

  • "Greenfield cottage from the moment you walk in feels like a home from home."

    So many special little touches starting with the welcome basket really make you feel at ease. There is everything available, no having to dash out to the shop because you've forgotten shampoo or washing up liquid, the owners have thought of everything. The cottage itself is so comfortable and a joy to sit around the table after supper playing an assortment of games provided for the children /grandchildren or having an hours peace in the lounge while they are in the playroom! Location couldn't better, so many places within an average of 30 minute drive. Bolton abbey, Skipton castle and Stump Cross caverns is just a little further but were we had lovely days out. We challenged ourselves to walk from the cottage to Bronte waterfall and Top Witham, (about 12 mile) what a beautiful walk and our 15/13 year old granddaughters enjoyed it too and said it was much easier than expected once you have done the first hill into Haworth! Haworth itself is obviously a must for the Bronte connection but I found (having our dog with us) the Parsons field just at the rear of the parsonage an absolute delight for the dog or just to sit and recharge. Not forgetting the the Keighley railway of course, we had a day rider ticket and enjoyed another day jumping on and off the trains and visiting each attraction at the stations. As you probably of guessed, as far as we are concerned a perfect cottage, location and a wonderful week for me, my husband and grandchildren. We can't thank the owners enough for the hospitality!

    The host’s have thought of everything! A lovely welcome basket full of treats, fresh flowers and lots flyers/information on things to do. The children loved the top floor playroom and we all loved eating meals in the cozy kitchen. When we were not spending time in the gorgeous cottage, we were out exploring the local area! There was so much to see and do! Highly recommend Greenfield cottage and we will most definitely be visiting again.

    There is nothing the owners hadn’t thought about. The beds were super comfortable too meaning sound sleeps all round. Thanks also for the lovely welcome pack and the fresh flowers were a lovely touch. Beautiful kitchen to cook in but also plenty options for take away delivery too. We enjoyed our walks to Brontë Falls and visit to York and a must is the village of Haworth where we had a lovely lunch. Perfect house for pets too… looking to return again soon in cooler climates to use the log burner!! I’m fact we just didn’t want to leave!!

    Extremely comfortable and very well equipped. Lovely welcome pack for us and treats for the dogs. My granddaughter loved the games in the loft room. Very close to Haworth and just a short drive from lots of things to do. The Golden Fleece is literally 5 minutes walk and is very friendly with great home cooked food. One thing to note is that there isn’t a garden as stated in the description. The outside space is just the small patio at the front of the property. Our big dog could jump onto the wall and the little one could squeeze through the gate so we kept them on their leads. We would definitely go back to this property though as soon as possible.

    Thank you for your feedback we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay. We have dog proofed the gate so no dogs will escape. Property Owner

    Sitting on the edge to put on socks not possible- edges sagged too. Clients should be able to set the heating thermostat. 10.30- 22.30 hrs did not suit us. It was 13 o C when we got up at 6.30 ! We had to wrap ourselves in duvets and blankets ( provided) weather was unseasonably cold and wet. Wood for the fire was damp, smoked and gave no heat. Note needed to disposed of recycling and other rubbish as no outside bins were provided. The only good feature of the cottage was the charming decor. Lack of a downstairs loo and steep stairs were also a problem for us but for our youngsters not a problem. We would not stay here again but have learnt from the experience. Phoning 48 hrs in advance would not have helped as its only on the spot help that was needed.

Tucked away in the small Pennine village of Oakworth, West Yorkshire, is this wonderful three-storey cottage, Greenfield Cottage.

Enjoying a wonderful location with easy access to the local amenities, the popular town of Haworth and the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, Greenfield Cottage is a superb dog-friendly dwelling for a group or family of six, plus their two canine companions.

Park-up roadside, before being greeted by a charming front patio with furniture, the perfect spot for savouring your morning coffee.

Step into the kitchen/diner, featuring beautiful, exposed beams and a handy washing machine and dishwasher, where you can prepare tasty home-cooked meals for your loved ones, ready to enjoy at the dining table for six as you recount the day's adventures.

After dinner, relax on the plush seating in front of the crackling woodburning stove in the sitting room, as your favourite show plays out on the TV with FreeSat box.

Climb the stairs up to the first floor, where you can wash away the day in the contemporary shower room after a day of exploring.

On this floor, you will also find two well-appointed bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, both with plenty of storage.

Make your way up to the second floor, where you immediately step into the snug space, featuring a TV, DVD player and Nintendo, perfect for getting away from it all.

Just off the snug you will find the third and final bedroom, a second twin with Velux windows and plenty of storage.

About the location

OAKWORTH

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.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Off-season
  • Christmas
