  • “Lovely secluded spot tucked away down a steepish hill so watch out for the sharp right then left hand turn although in the instructions it does warn you.”

    The views were stunning as were the gardens - plenty of spots front and back for shade and sun. Seating front and back. Very quiet -occasional donkey bray from a field further down. Occasional visit from a ginger cat and 3 very well behaved chickens - all added to the country charm! The cottage was more spacious than the photos implied. Very nice kitchen with all good facilities -lovely brown eggs left by Barbara the owner who is very friendly. Just short of some eggcups. Rooms were comfortably ...

    The views were stunning as were the gardens - plenty of spots front and back for shade and sun. Seating front and back. Very quiet -occasional donkey bray from a field further down. Occasional visit from a ginger cat and 3 very well behaved chickens - all added to the country charm! The cottage was more spacious than the photos implied. Very nice kitchen with all good facilities -lovely brown eggs left by Barbara the owner who is very friendly. Just short of some eggcups. Rooms were comfortably furnished and some interesting family trinkets. You can walk to the local Co-Op about 10 mins downhill maybe 20 mins up the steep slope. Pleasant walk to the Oakworth train station and if you are a keen walker can join the 'The Railway Children Trail'. Car required for the pubs -this is the Dales things are spread out! Many lovely things to do for all interests. Railway journeys/museums/stately homes/great walks/shopping at Saltaire or Piece Hall and many other things. Only draw back is the one bathroom for 4 adults but we were aware and made plans to deal with that but with the other lovely things this was easily dealt with. Many thanks to Barbara -lovely holiday.

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.
