  • "What a fascinating place to stay!"

    There is so much to look at enjoy. We were very comfortable throughout our break and The Dairy had everything we needed; a well stocked kitchen for cooking, comfortable sofas and bed and the joy of the copper bath! It was a 5 minute walk to the cobbled street, pubs and cafes, and even quicker to the station. Our hosts were very responsive and helpful. Tim helped us with walking routes and recommended the bus journey to Hebden Bridge, which was definitely a highlight.

    Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review and we’re glad you had a comfortable stay and that the Hebden Bridge recommendation delivered for you! Property Owner

    The property owners could not have been more helpful, especially so far as the weather was concerned; it snowed whilst we were there and getting back up the lane when it had snowed could have been difficult without their advice and help. All in all a truly lovely and comfortable cottage, close to lots of eateries and some very interesting places to visit.

    A beautiful old property with character and so many quirky things to look at around the place. The king size bed was extremely comfortable, and plenty of towels and bed linen was provided. We had the option of lighting the fire, but the central heating was enough to take the chill off on the occasional cooler evening. It was clean, well equipped, comfortable and in a stunning location, close to rail and bus links. Lots of walks around Haworth and the surrounding areas. Be prepared for the hills though. We had two happy weeks here, and would love to return in the future.

  • "Awesome Cottage!"

    My wife and I had a great stay at The Dairy, which is a very quirky and extremely fascinating place to stay; we spent ages just looking around all the place at all the fixtures, fittings and objects. Well thought out, Caroline and Tim have provided everything required plus more and it was attention to details and the little things that made the difference, starting with a great welcome email ahead of arrival, a cracking phone call with Caroline to confirm codes, needs etc and an in-person welcome by Tim whilst we were unpacking. From the feature free-standing copper bath (which we now have to get one of our own), to the cosy room with the log burner, the sooooo comfy bed to having very simple instructions for everything that made for getting settled quickly. We happened to stay during Halloween, where the Haworth community had gone for it ‘big time!’ - and added to our brilliant stay. The Dairy is perfectly located with just a 2 minute walks in any direction to get into the town, or the Central Park, or the volunteer run Steam Trains and also the Brontë Bus service that we used to travel to the lovely Hebden Bridge. An easy walk out of the cottage through to Howarth Main Street(cobbled), out to the Brontë parsonage, and a beautiful walk to the waterfall and beyond. Plenty of great food & drink places as well as craft / gift type shops for all tastes to look around. We even got an education in Steam Punk. All in all, a fantastic stay and a place we’ll be hoping to get back to.

    Dear Ricky, thank you for such a great review and taking the time to give such comprehensive feedback! It's really appreciated and it's great to hear that you had a brilliant time! Haworth often goes "all out" and there are many events running throughout the year. We do hope that we can host you again at The Dairy and there's always something new to discover in Bronte Country!

    The owners Caroline and Tim are friendly and thoughtful and have put a lot of care and love into this quirky, cosy little cottage that's bursting with character. Caroline thoughtfully text me to let me know the cottage would be ready early which I really appreciated...especially as she was on her way to an important job interview in Leeds. There is nothing worse, or that feels more wasteful than waiting until 3pm to start your holiday when in fact your accommodation is sat waiting for you at 1pm! Bravo! I wish more holiday owners would take the time to do this. The cottage itself is even lovelier than the photos. Tim and Caroline have recycled, repurposed and built just about everything from antiques and found objects...and it's all been done with love and attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble. There was plenty of wood for the fire and the offer of baking trays and tins to use in the Aga if I need them. I'm quite picky but there was nothing to fault at all with this romantic little hideaway. The bed was comfortable, the sofas were plump and supportive and there were lots of fluffy towels for us to use. With the Aga gently warming the kitchen and the wood burning stove in the lounge, the cottage was cosy and warm. Perfectly located down a quiet lane with views of the surrounding hills, minutes away from the Worth Valley Railway on one side and a few minutes walk away from the high street and the famous Bronte Parsonage on the other. The cherry on the cake was a jar of Carolines homemade chutney...yummy! Thank you for a lovely anniversary weekend guys. ;)

  • "We've just returned from a 2 week holiday staying in beautiful Haworth in the delightful Dairy at Mill Cottage."

    The Dairy has all mod cons but with a twist that make you feel like you had turned back time to over a hundred years ago. Tim and Caroline have spent over 4 years lovingly converting this beautiful cottage and we were amazed at all the quirky items and period pieces that they have used. A lovely large open fireplace with a fuel burner, to little signs and unusual lighting fitments. A magnificent copper bath in the bedroom plus a large oak beam across the bedroom ceiling. The AGA in the kitchen has been converted to electric which is connected to solar panels and is left on permanently to keep the kitchen and cottage warm and cosy...especially in the morning when you are having your breakfast and the roof light in the kitchen also lets in the sunshine. This is also very welcoming when you've been out walking the beautiful but blustery moors and dales.. Haworth is lovely but very hilly! But having walked up the cobbled and very steep main street to the top to visit shops and pubs for lunch, dinner or a pint or 2 (lovely food at the Old White Lion) it is good to know that it is all downhill from there back to the Dairy!! The railway station with steam trains is about 3 minutes walk from the Dairy and when sat in the kitchen you can hear it whistle and puff its way down the line..which brings back fond memories from our childhood days! There is plenty to do and see and Tim and Caroline have a rack with lots of leaflets and maps about places of interest in this area. We visited Skipton, which is not far plus Malham Cove and Tarn are both beautiful places to visit for a good walk or ramble and again a pub done by Julia Bradbury of television fame! Near Malham itself is The Top Farm farmshop as advertised by Tom Kerridge and is well worth a visit. The food in the cafe is very good and the shop has lots of unusual items of food plus your everyday stuff like bread and butter plus as you sit in the cafe, on a clear day, you can see Malham Cove. All in all we had a lovely time at the Dairy and would recommend it to anyone wanting a base to visit in that area. Tim and Caroline are a lovely couple, very friendly and only to pleased to help make your stay very special...***Would like to thank Caroline for the delicious homemade chutney which we devoured with some sheeps cheese and porkpie from the farmshop!!...

  • "Feedback for The Dairy, Haworth."

    Starting from our receipt of the directions and instructions from Caroline and a Tim. These were concise and accurate. I spoke to Tim before we set off, ( to check whether it was a freezer and a fridge; it is a fridge with an icebox which was ample for our needs. (What a pleasant man.) When we arrived the parking for our mid size car (Suzuki cross over) was easy and next to the kitchen door. Access to the keys was via the coded lock box in the adjacent doorway. Two mortice keys because the kitchen door is a two piece “stable door”. On entry to the kitchen the whole cottage smelled nice and clean ( with that “ comfortable feeling”) It lived up to the pictures but they do not do it justice. We have stayed in a lot of cottages where things were not finished off, I.e. loose taps, shower doors not fitting fully, there is none of that here. Things are solidly fastened. The fittings are good quality. There is even an ironing board with an iron tucked to the side of the wardrobe should you require them. Tim and Caroline could not have been more helpful or considerate. They were not intrusive but they obviously cared about our having a nice break. ( a neighbour doing building work had to turn off the water supply for a little while but Tim and Caroline brought us bottles of water round, unbidden, beforehand. ) We did not use the bath, but it looks lovely. I am quite large 6’2 and sixteen stone so I like a good bed. The bed was very adequate and comfortable. The toilet is solid and steady. The shower cubicle is big enough for me and the shower water delivery was plenty. There is plenty of hot water and the shower thermostat works very easily, but you need to turn the shower on a little while before it achieves its set temperature which does not then fluctuate. There is an easy to use thermostat in the bedroom which allows you to regulate the heating throughout the cottage to your taste throughout the day, unlike some other cottages who assume, wrongly, that you won’t need heat during the daytime. The towels and bedding, along with the furnishings are very good quality. There is a low beam in the bedroom and the bathroom door is low but they are well padded and “sign posted”. Sitting on the sofa in front of the fire ( easy to light, draws well and doesn’t smoke like some other cottages. ) watching a film then the football was my idea of heaven. ( we do not drink alcohol but Yorkshire tea and Taylor’s coffee help with the experience.) We visited the Bronte museum and the church, my wife was thrilled. But “Hilly Haworth” lived up to its name. We had a meal with friends in the Fleece, it was very good and the pub is a really traditional one, well worth a visit. ( four meals from the specials board plus four puddings £57.) We walked back in the dark with owls calling in the trees, it was really nice. The Villette cafe bakery near the church does lovely Yorkshire shortcrust pasties, bread ( the whole meal uncut tastes very good,) and cakes. The fish and chips nearby are good. To go to this area you turn right out of the kitchen door, fit and turn on your oxygen mask and good shoes. If you turn left you go downhill over the railway gantry and there is a Spar convenience store for milk, papers, magazines and groceries. It has a free to use atm. You get a lovely view of the Worth Valley train station there. The fish and chip shop nearby is fine as well. Finally, a few things that others may like to know. Our two phones, one Vodafone and one EE worked very well in the cottage. I brought some clerical work with me and the lighting and seating arrangements were fine for this. ( walking up to the post office with the paperwork for posting in the rain was “character building” once my breathing got back to normal. ) reading in bed was lovely, plenty of lights and a nice padded headboard. There is a tv in the bedroom but we didn’t use it. The sofas are very comfortable and not too low. The tv in the living room was big enough and had spare HDMI ports. I like to use nowtv for films, these worked flawlessly. I also brought my Chromecast which allowed me to “ cast” to the tv and watch the Saturday match on bt sport and the midweek European matches. All the matches worked seamlessly with no buffering so I assume an Amazon firestick or Netflix accounts would as well. The Wi-fi works very well throughout the cottage. Thank you Caroline and Tim.

  • "My wife and I have just returned home from our week stay at ‘The Dairy’ holiday cottage."

    I say holiday cottage but that would not do it justice as it may blend into the many ‘Holiday Cottages’ on the Sykes web site from which we booked it. It is more of an enchanting couples retreat, simply beautiful and magical in every way. We chose the cottage after looking at the pictures on the website however even these do not do it justice. On entering the cottage your first impressions are WOW isn’t this lovely, we have picked a good one here’ After unpacking and getting to grips with everything such as the fire, stove, Arga and so forth you then get to look around and really start to appreciate all the thought that has gone into making this place just enchanting. It is unique in every way as most of the fixtures and fitting are individual and hand made. It’s fun everywhere you look, there is even a trumpet above the cooker. I don’t know why but everything just works. This is where Captain Nemo must chill out and write his books when he is not on his submarine. The location really couldn’t be better as it is fairly private sharing the landscape with just a few other individual houses just off the beaten track, private enough to feel like a getaway but just a short stroll into Haworth. 3 minutes down the hill and over the steam railway bridge and you are in the main village area where there is a convenience store and a few pubs and takeaways. If you go 3 minutes in the other direction up the hill you arrive at Hayworth old village street. This is beautiful and full of old quirky shops, cafes, restraints and pubs. Now I normally like to keep myself to myself when we go away so as to chill and recharge. ‘The Dairy’ really is a romantic cottage, so just perfect for spending some quality time together with my lovely wife. It has a really comfy bed, a big copper bath with champagne flutes and a roaring log burner which keeps the cottage really toasty. We got to say hi to Tim and Caroline who lovingly restored the cottage for many years before allowing lucky individuals to rent it out as a getaway. They live nearby but completely keep out of your way for privacy, yet are on hand in case you need anything and we found them to be a lovely accommodating couple. For instance if you run out of logs for the log burner instead of having to traipse into the local village and pick some up, which we have had to do with cottages in the past, Tim will quietly leave you some outside the front door. If you get a chance say Hi to them as they can tell you all about the 15th century cottage. Try the front door bell – Its hilarious. All in all our stay could not have been more perfect. Lovely Cottage, Lovely place, and would definitely goo back.

  • "The Dairy is a fantastic cottage to spend some time!"

    The owners have spent time creating a space full of quirky curiosities & quality comforts to be admired, the crowning glory being the 250litre freestanding bath. After a days walking it was great to have a soak and a real place to stretch out in, with maybe a glass or two, then settle down in front of the wood burner and t.v.. There's a choice of various dvd's & cd's if you require them, and a few games too. There's tea, coffee & milk waiting for you on arrival, so if you've had a decent journey you can settle down straight away.....perfect! The owner's have tried & I believe succeeded in thinking of pretty much everything, but are happy to be contacted should you need anything more, but if you just want to say hi that's fine too. Haworth is a lovely town, Main Street being the place to see. I can recommend The Fleece Inn & The Kings Arms for food & drink. We also walked to Hebden Bridge, you can get a guide from Tourist Information (1.50), but we only had a Fri-Mon stay which is definitely not long enough, but on the upside it means we can go back....and we will definitely be looking to book The Dairy again. Thank you for a wonderful Anniversary weekend away. Mike & Sue

    You can tell that a lot of thought and time has been put into creating this cottage. It's very comfortable and a great place to chill out if you want to hang around in the cottage, which you might as the lounge is so relaxing and the bath tub is excellent. It's very close to the town and within walking distance of all that you will need.

The property

A first-class semi-detached, stone-built cottage, attached to the owner's home, situated just five minutes’ walk from the centre of Haworth, the home of the Bronte sisters.

This outstanding holiday home, three years in the making, is a masterpiece of creative styling and artistic flair and a great credit to the owners who have painstakingly brought all the elements of this historic old property together.

From the moment you walk into this stylish accommodation you cannot fail to be impressed by the owner’s attention to detail and the wonderful styling and quirky design of this fabulous romantic retreat.

The lovely kitchen/diner is bathed in soft light from the Velux window, whilst the warming AGA and the bespoke styling all seamlessly combine to create a cosy room ideal for a home-made meal and a relaxing bottle of wine.

The spacious sitting room with its lovely woodburner and delightful soft furnishings provides the perfect spot to snuggle up and enjoy a movie night.

The real delight of this wonderful holiday home lies upstairs where the entire floor has been opened up to provide a real wow factor.

The freestanding copper bath with the home-made champagne glass holders and the taps made out of an old trombone, form the centre piece of the room with a luxurious king-size bed and small en-suite to delight guests.

The house is bedecked with curiosities, skilful home-made fittings, including a Victorian gas meter holder made into a set of lights, vintage pieces and the occasional splash of Art Nouveau, old beams and exposed stonework which all seamlessly combine to delight all visitors.

A small patio area adjoins the kitchen and provides a place to enjoy a drink in the sunshine.

Haworth is a very popular atmospheric old town, and a short walk from the cottage brings you to the main street, where you will find an abundance of traditional pubs, restaurants and cafes.

Many come to visit the parsonage where the Brontes lived during the 1820s and see the surrounding moorlands where they drew inspiration for their classic tales.

While there is something for everyone in the town itself, the nearby market town of Skipton, boasting cobbled streets, a medieval castle and award-winning high street makes a wonderful day out.

Further afield, are Hebden Bridge and the Victorian spa town of Harrogate, as well as the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, just over half an hour's drive away.

A first class romantic retreat.

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.
