The property

Bingley 1.5 miles.

An attractive stone, end-terrace cottage in East Morton, one and a half miles from the lively market town of Bingley in Bronte Country.

Renovated to a good standard, the property provides an excellent base for couples or small families wanting to visit the many nearby attractions and to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside.

Offering warm and cosy accommodation, there is a beamed sitting room with a small dining area and a lovely warming woodburner set in a stone feature fireplace; perfect for relaxing by in the cooler evenings.

A compact, galley-style kitchen leads off from the sitting room while upstairs is a modern bathroom and two comfortable bedrooms, with the double boasting pleasant views over the hills.

Outside, there is a delightful enclosed sheltered garden with a summerhouse and a decked patio; ideal to sit and enjoy a morning coffee before heading out for the day.

Nearby Bingley is a bustling town, situated on the River Aire and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.

It offers many local amenities with pubs, trendy bars, cafes and restaurants, and is known for the five rise locks on the canal which narrow boats have to negotiate.

From the cottage, there are excellent road links to bring you into the heart of Bronte Country, with Haworth just a few minutes’ drive.

Here, guests can take a trip on the Worth Valley Steam Railway, which puffs its way through the countryside, visit the Bronte Museum, or walk on the windswept wild moors.

Cliff Castle at Keighley is worth a visit, as is East Riddleston Hall, both close by.

An interesting day out is at Salts Mill, just four miles away at Saltaire, with its galleries, restaurants and shopping facilities, all housed in the former mill built by Sir Titus Salt, plus art lovers will be enthralled by the David Hockney exhibitions.

A well-placed welcoming cottage for a varied and interesting holiday.
