    The Barn is a great place to stay for both comfort and location. The beautiful views from all the windows were an added bonus. The property is very well equipped with three lovely roomy bedrooms and three bathrooms. The owner of the property, Mrs Wilkins, met us on arrival, showed us around the property and gave us all the information we needed for our stay. She was very helpful and welcoming.

    The Barn is a great place to stay for both comfort and location. The beautiful views from all the windows were an added bonus. The property is very well equipped with three lovely roomy bedrooms and three bathrooms. The owner of the property, Mrs Wilkins, met us on arrival, showed us around the property and gave us all the information we needed for our stay. She was very helpful and welcoming. We initially had a little trouble finding the Barn, as Mrs Wilkins had previously warned, when I spoke to her on the phone a couple of days before our arrival . It's location is at the bottom of a steep tarmac driveway which is not easy to see from the main road, and if being guided by Sat Nav you will be taken to a completely different road! I spent the week there with my mother and sister (who had driven us from the south of England but could only stay until the Monday). After my sister left my mother and I were reliant on public transport. There are bus stops on the main Keighley road just a minute's walk from the property and the K7 bus service is very frequent (every 15 minutes) between Oakworth and Keighley. We used this service a lot during the week and were able to get buses to other locations from Keighley bus station. The train station is a 10 minute walk from Keighley bus station. All in all, it was a lovely week spent in a very comfortable property. I highly recommend this property as a great base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales.

About the location

OAKWORTH

Haworth 2 miles; Skipton 10 miles.

Oakworth is a small Pennine village just two miles 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.
