  • "Lovely Cottage in beautiful area."

    Lovely open fire. Only slight critique is the shower was quite low performance but apart from that highly recommended. Also owners very friendly and always on hand if you need them.

  • "The cottage was amazing we had a great time."

    Stuart the owner was very friendly and the back garden patio was very useful to chill and watch the wildlife. Would certainly book the property again.

  • "Pretty cottage with nice garden in a good location ."

    Access to open county side and lovely walks. Comfortable, high standard of furnishings and decoration, lots of hot water, central heating on a temperature control setting . Open fire but no fuel provided. When weather turned cool we needed to request that the heating was put on which was done without any problem. Fresh flowers and biscuits provided which was a nice touch. Owners very helpful and had taken a lot of trouble to make our stay enjoyable. Advertised with parking available which was correct , however parking a larger car was awkward and needed to be partly on the road and partly on a rather unusually high raised curb. Passenger needed to get out of car before parking ideally.

  • "The cottage was clean and well appointed."

    The last two weeks have been unusually cold. On arrival the cottage was quite cold. The heating system was controlled by wifi which the owner acknowledged often dropped out. When the heating did come on it was there were a number of airlocks which the eventually the owner sorted out. On a good day the heating came on in the morning which was fine and then in the evening from 4- 6 pm and on two occasions only also from 8-9pm. The heating could not be controlled by us in any way. In the instructions for the cottage there was supposed to be a starter pack for the woodburner which during last week was needed. There was no starter pack and the owner was unable to sell us any wood,. We obtained a limited amount from our son but we felt that there needs to be either a portable heater for when then the heating does not come on or some way for controlling the heating. We accept that it was unseasonably cold but sadly we were cold on a number of evenings which spoilt our visit to an otherwise excellent venue

  • "Great location if you are seeking tranquility in one of the better rural areas of West Yorkshire."

    Superb base walkers and people who wish to explore West Yorkshire, The Southern Yorkshire Dales and East Lancashire. A car or some form of transport is, in our opinion, essential for this particular property. Our stay was extremely enjoyable in comfortable and clean property with very hospitable and friendly neighbours.

  • "The location and the cottage were perfect."

    Little things like leaving milk in the fridge, and coffee/tea and sugar, a blessing if you arrive late. A bunch of fresh flowers on the kitchen table, all thoughtful touches. Comfy bed, clean. Perfect.

The property

A beautiful 17th century, stone-built detached cottage, situated on a quiet lane, close to the small village of Oakworth and two miles from Haworth.

This characterful cottage has been lovingly restored to provide a first class holiday home in a great location just a couple of miles from historic Howarth in beautiful rolling countryside.

In a wonderful setting, with views of the surrounding open meadows and horses grazing in the nearby farm and everything close at hand, including a lovely country pub, this is the perfect setting to enjoy Dales life at its very best.

Packed with character and charm, the owners have taken every care to combine modern styling with the historic genes of this old cottage.

Guests will be met with a warm and cosy sitting room, with a lovely woodburning stove, a beautiful wooden floor and comfortable furnishings, an ideal room to relax and unwind.

The modern kitchen/diner is well equipped and provides a great place to prepare a sumptuous evening meal.

Upstairs, the charming double bedroom boasts a delightful French bed and stylish decoration, and the single room is equally stylish and both rooms are served by a family bathroom.

Outside, through the rear porch, there is a beautiful rear garden with patio area and mature gardens overlooking the brook and the surrounding meadows.

With numerous walks from the doorstep, including one that takes you to the nearby pub with its own well-known brewery, walks across meadowland, woodland and along to Top Withens, made famous in Wuthering Heights, this is a fabulous location.

Skipton is nearby with its cobbled streets and castle, offering access to the Yorkshire Dales, whilst the Victorian spa town of Harrogate boasts fabulous shops, an excellent theatre and the fantastic Royal Pump Room Museum.

A perfect retreat at any time of year.

Note: This cottage is next to Refs. 24430 and 29670, together they sleep 11.

About the location


Haworth 1 mile; 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.
