    Had to reverse numerous times along the deep pot hole access road. Hard to see around sharp corner to exit onto main road. Hot Tub bubble setting tripped all electricity in property owner on day 3 owner promised to sort with electrician following day but heard nothing so could not use hot tub for remainder of stay, although electricity restored quickly. No storage at all in double bedrooms just coat hooks on wall. Door hit the bed in one of the rooms so limited space. Access to 3 of 4 storage drawers under beds in twin room which was only storage for clothes for whole property. Twin room has no mirror and only tiny mirror in hallway v difficult for adults using twin room to get ready when plug socket required for hair dryer / straighteners. Very noisy Cockerell, geese and peacocks from 4am. Kids in play area in front of property and sweeping outside bedroom windows from very early..not very restful. Fridge too small to store food/ drinks/milk for 6 adults for a weeks stay. Pros Very close to Howarth and surrounding area for exploring. 3 bathrooms 2 with walk in showers Fans provided in all rooms Everything provided for stay..tea towels, cloths, dishwasher tablets, foil and well stocked kitchen, although not 6 small juice glasses when property sleeps 6. Enjoyed stay but would not stay again.

  • "The worst holiday cottage we have ever stayed in."

    Rude owners, no storage, broken utensils and toaster, hot tub not working with jets, tablets left in draw from previous occupants and my father with alzeimers was about to taje them, thankfully we stopped him just in time, underwear left in draw from previous occupants, scalded from too hot towel rails, car scratched by animals, no electricity for a few hours without warning on last afternoon where my elderly parents had no means to heat their food. No where to dry wet clothes after hot tub. No bath mats jad to use towels.... we could go on and on. We ate currently waiting for a partial refund as it was not worth over £1k for 6 nights. Absolutely appalling from start to finish.

    It saddens us to think that someone has not enjoyed their stay, we do everything we can to enable our quests to have a lovely break, as described in the majority of the other quests feedback. The underwear and medication left in one of the draws was very upsetting both for ourselves and the cleaners as we reiterated on all four occasions the guest wished to discuss it. We would like to reassure future guests that as we did and always do, as soon as a problem is brought to our attention, we do try to rectify it ASAP. We did in fact provide a new toaster, 6 wine glasses, a fan, a new spatula and a spa engineer, an electrician within hours of being informed over the duration of the 6 days stayed. Just under £28 per night per adult at Easter does not seem extortionate so we are sorry the guest felt unhappy with the price. Property Owner

    There isn’t a lot of space to put your clothes in the bedrooms, a small set of drawers would be good. Having all the animals to see is great, although a little noisy first thing in the morning. Cocktails crowing, donkeys braying and alpaca noise, but it is a farm so it’s to be expected. Can’t complain when you get fresh eggs straight from the chickens. We had a lovely week and the owners are fabulous. It’s very near all shops if you need them but far enough away to be away from it all.

    The hosts were marvellous, you knew the we on hand if you needed them, however, you were left to your own devices. The Hen Shed was lovely, however, with 4 adults and 2 teenagers (tall) we felt it was quit small. There wasn't anywhere to store clothes or belongings in the bedrooms, no wardrobes, drawers or bedside cabinets. Small stool had a lamp on, but wouldn't have fitted anything else. The walls were quite thin so you could hear everything in the other rooms, therefore unable to use televisions in bedrooms in evening. We felt this was ideal for family with small children that will all have a early night.

Peacocks, Alpacas, Goats, Hens, Geese. All of which know there limits and do not try to come into the cabin/hot tub areas.If you take a pet with you they have a dedicated paddock area where they can go do there business, but have to be kept on their lead. There is a forest which is a 5 minute walk away where they can run free. Out cabin (the old hen shed) was sound proofed, so when we were inside making noise or is neighbours were having a party then there was nothing to be heard from inside or out. Cabin was very clean, beds were extremely comfy and we couldn't wish for anything more than what they provided... we even got complimentary fresh eggs for breakfast in the morning..

  • "Amazing place."

    Owners were fantastic and our young son really enjoyed meeting so many different animals. Lodge was brilliant for a family, little extras made a big difference. Would recommend this lodge to any animal lovers or people looking for a home away from home to relax in comfort.

About the location


Skipton 13 miles; Hebden Bridge 8 miles.

The small village of Haworth was home to the famous Bronte sisters, who were inspired by the surrounding moorland to pen their novels, which have become classics of English Literature. Haworth is a village that time almost forgot, with its myriad of curiosity and antique shops, alleyways and cobbled streets creating a wonderful period atmosphere, all set against a framing backdrop of countryside famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights as wild, rugged and barren. Nearby, the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, provides a lovely day out with a regular service to the old village of Oxenhope. The area abounds with popular places to visit, including the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the National Railway Museum in York. The market town of Skipton, often fondly regarded as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
