    Great location, Haworth Main Street within walking distance (albeit a step walk up hill), lovely seeing steam/diesel train pass window. Would highly recommend

  • "Stayed over the New Year period and the cottage was beautifully decorated for the festive season."

    With welcoming goodies. And is a lovely clean and warm place to come back to after exploring the local area. Loved the steam train outside the cottage. Well positioned for Haworth village centre and great walks from the front door. Lovely pubs and shops a short walk away. We also enjoyed Hardcastle Crag and Hebden Bridge. And the Salt Mill. Brontë waterfall walk, the moors and so much more. Would highly recommend.

    It is well equipped and spotless. The heating was very toasty and you can see the trains passing as you sit in the lounge. The welcome pack is a nice treat. We have been before and will definitely book again.

  • "Lovely clean, modern cottage close to the supermarkets in Haworth."

    Beds comfortable. Parking right outside the property is a bonus. It’s a climb up to the main village but a detour through the park helps make the climb easier. Welcome pack was a real bonus, but there are no complimentary toiletries in the bathroom. (Shower gel, shampoo, conditioner)

  • "It was a lovely cottage, very light and airy, very well equipped, and so close to the stream railway."

    The welcome pack was a lovely surprise. It is ideally situated within walking distance of the railway and main street, although we needed to drive being disabled, so the downstairs bedroom and wc were ideal. The owner was very helpful when we contacted her. There are lots of takeaways who will deliver and places to eat nearby. We will definitely book again.

  • "We had a fabulous week in this lovely cottage."

    It was very comfortable and well equipped and the welcome pack was greatly appreciated. The parking spaces were one of the reasons we booked this cottage.The steam trains were exciting especially a tour of the railway shed including the Flying Scotsman. The cottage is close to a supermarket and the village which has plenty of places to eat and drink. We would thoroughly recommend staying here and would love to return sometime in the future.

  • "Really beautiful and clean property in a great location in Haworth."

    The heritage railway going passed the back of the house really did make it for us and if you are a train fan then this place really is for you. There are lots of hills to tackle to get up to the Brontë Parsonage and Main Street but also plenty of car parks around the top which are reasonably priced and there is a taxi firm on the housing development the house is situated on if you wanted to taxi up and walk back down. All in all, a fantastic stay and wonderful accommodation!

  • "We all enjoyed our stay in Chuffing Cottage immensely."

    It is beautifully kept and very comfortable with all the amenities and equipment one could wish for including close-up views of the most fantastic steam locomotives. The electric car charging point was a real boon (standard 3kW 3 pin plug gave sufficient overnight charge for a day's touring). I would definitely recommend Chuffing Cottage to anyone wishing to explore the Yorkshire Dales and may well make a return visit.

  • "A great base for exploring Haworth and beyond."

    We loved watching the steam trains going up and down the line. The property had everything we needed (apart from a snow shovel). We arrived a day later than planned due to the amber weather warning for snow but had a great week after that. We look forward to returning in the future.

    It is cozy and compact and has all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay in Haworth. The welcome pack was most thoughtful and the person letting the property was helpful and responded quickly to queries.

    Lovely cottage layout. Steam train right outside window! Bliss. We loved our stay. If we come back to Haworth will book again. Parking right outside was great. Most of the cottages in Haworth are right on the road and no parking available right outside. The welcome pack was a well recieved surprise! And the beautiful aroma from the clean bedding when I opened the bedroom door was just bliss! Well done on a perfect holiday let.

    Great location for visiting the surrounding area. Spotlessly clean cottage. Only thing we found is that the settees were a bit uncomfortable, but did not spoil our stay. Would recommend, the rail tracks of the KWVR at rear of the cottage, lovely to see the trains chuffing past.!

  • "Well positioned just outside of the main centre of Haworth."

    Less than 5 mins walk to the KWVR - steam trains (which run along behind the house). 5-10 mins walk to local takeaways: Chinese, Indian, pizza, fish and chips. And only 10 mins walk into the main cobbled streets of Haworth and the Parsonage - through the park if desired! See Victorian times come to life with back to back housing, mills etc House is well equipped with everything you would need on a holiday. Comfortable bed. Added bonus of the babbling beck at the back which can be heard with windows open and the welcome visit of a Heron! Must sees: Brontë Parsonage; Steam trains - Oakworth - where The Railway Children filmed; Shibden Hall; Hebden Bridge (great to go on the bus - TransdevGo app brilliant!); walk from Oakworth starion to Haworth also good. And the Moors.

  • "We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely cottage."

    We were lucky to have booked it for the weekend they had the 1940s event. We loved the fact the train was right at the back and enjoyed waving to the passengers over the weekend. There was a beautiful walk alongside the beck to Oxenhope Station and we caught the B3 bus to Hebden Bridge, crossing the Moors. We were sad that we had to leave two days early, as we missed seeing the Bronte Parsonage and riding on the train. Besides that it was a perfect holiday.

  • "We had a lovely pre-Christmas stay at Chuffing Cottage and hope to return again soon!"

    The modern cottage is located in a quiet residential development in Haworth and we were thrilled to hear and see a steam train go ‘chuffing’ by behind the house, within a few minutes of arriving! The excitement never wore off and we rushed to the window every time we heard the train coming - such a lovely treat for kids and adults alike! Well equipped, the cottage contains everything needed for a comfortable stay and we loved the beautiful welcome pack which featured some nice chocolate treats that were enjoyed by the children, as well as snacks, bread, milk and a bottle of wine; a very nice gesture to welcome visitors! Haworth Main Street with its quaint shops and eateries is only a short walk away - but worth noting it’s up a rather steep hill (as those who know the area will be aware: it’s all part of the charm). There’s a large ‘Co-op’ at the entrance to the development which is easily the size of small supermarket and can provide enough food and variety for a weekly shop on arrival. Inside, Chuffing cottage is much more spacious and attractive than the pictures on the site suggest, and the double height living area offers a lovely place to relax and watch tv. The property was warm, had plenty of storage space and also many towels etc available in the bathroom. We took advantage of a visit to the nearby Bronte Parsonage which is a lovely place to experience for those who have an interest in literature or history. We also went for a journey on the ‘Elf Express’ KWVR steam train and were joined by our family who live locally - for what turned out to be a fabulous Christmas treat! Overall the cottage was a fabulous base to visit our Yorkshire relatives and explore beautiful Haworth, and we hope to return again soon!

    It is ideally situated to explore the beautiful Yorkshire dales. The cottage was very well equipped with everything we needed and it was a bonus having the electric charger for our car. We appreciated the provisions left for us on our arrival and found the steam trains on the weekend an enjoyable sight. The only negative was I think we may have misunderstood the info re provision of towels. There were only two guest towels and two small hand towels provided in main bathroom and one hand towel in the downstairs loo. This however did not detract from us having a wonderful stay and I would definitely return and recommend to others.

    The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for a pleasant stay. The property is exceptionally clean bright and airy. Although currently busy with building works during the day it is quiet and peaceful in the evening and night times. It is well situated to explore lots of interesting places in the local area and nearby Yorkshire Moors and Dales. The passing steam trains and babbling brook to the rear of the property adds to its charm. We were greatly impressed by the owner’s flexibility as we needed to change the dates of our stay at short notice and they accommodated our request without issue. A useful suggestion would be to have a separate information folder about local attractions and information etc A visitors book would also be beneficial to read and record comments and recommendations. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property to our relatives and friends.

The property

This modern and stylish semi-detached cottage, a new build in 2018 is part of the Bridgehouse Mills development, a late 18th Century water powered worsted yarn spinning factory.

Set alongside the route of the famous Worth Valley Steam Railway, made famous by the film The Railway Children and the Bridgehouse Beck this a great opportunity to enjoy watching the steam trains ‘chuffing’ past whilst enjoying the many delights of this modern and luxurious holiday home.

Set over two floors, the main ground floor living area benefits from a high ceiling with automatic velux windows casting a light across the room to create a bright and cheery feeling to the whole room.

The ground floor includes an open plan sitting room, diner and modern kitchen with a very useful cloakroom with disabled access and a cosy double bedroom.

Upstairs on the spacious mezzanine floor is a further double room with attached bathroom providing luxurious, modern facilities.

Both bedrooms look out across Bridgehouse Beck to the railway, so breakfast in bed with the steam trains wending their way up the valley is a great way to relax and unwind.

Stylish and contemporary throughout with a large screen wall-mounted TV, and full-length window filling the room with natural lighting.

The attractive front terrace is ideal for sitting out and enjoying an evening tipple and there is a further terrace to the rear of the property overlooking the beck.

Ideally located in a cul de sac with just a short walk to the Worth Valley station and a ten-minute walk to the famous and engaging Hawarth High street.

Haworth is famous for public footpaths in and around the village and some of the most popular walks are around the reservoirs and the Bronte Falls.

Walk along Bronte Way visiting the Bronte Bridge, leading out onto the bleak moors where you can visit Top Withins.

Skipton is nearby with its delightful castle, and further afield is the Victorian spa town of Harrogate, boasting fabulous shops, and an excellent theatre.

A great opportunity to stay in a first-class holiday home, great location, excellent facilities and your own train set!

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.
