From the moment we arrived, the scent of the air wicks, the warmth of the cottage and the generous welcome pack gave us lasting first impressions so we shall certainly be back in the not too distant future. The water fall shower is spectacular, the log burner roared with heat and made what was already a cosy cottage just that extra little cosier. Thank you for having the fireplace set up initially as it gave me the opportunity of how it should be setup (of course there’s instructions beside the fireplace too!)

Kick off your walking boots as you get settled into the open-plan living space of this truly charming abode, where wooden beams, exposed stonework and a warming woodburning stove retain the property’s original character, providing a truly beautiful and unique spot to spend quality time with loved ones.

On entering the property, you will be impressed by the original Yorkshire Stone flagged floor, The cottage boasts tasteful furnishings and atmospheric lighting throughout creating a nostalgic feel of bygone days.

About the location

HAWORTH

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.
