    Myself, my partner and my daughter had a very comfortable 3 nights in this cottage. The owner had left lots of welcoming personal touches and gifts for us to enjoy during our stay, including fresh orange juice, milk, a comprehensive range of hot drinks, cordials and even a stocked drinks cabinet. It is important to restate that the stairs and access up to the cottage is steep and may not be suitable for some but it sure is worth it. The main bed is extremely comfortable with luxurious bedding and there is no need to bring any linen or towels as they are provided. The second bedroom mattress is very firm. The bathroom is small but nicely fitted, with a reasonable shower. There is no issue with water pressure or temperature or noisy pipes that you sometimes find. The kitchen equipment works well with the scale of the kitchen and I can't immediately think of anything that was missing. There are a lot of dried hops bushels hanging in the front room. These do emit a smell which was not our taste but I know others have complimented them. The compact raised patio area outside is private and a great place to both start and end the day. The location is stunning and full of excellent places to eat. All descriptions given for this property are fully accurate but I would offer the photos do not give it justice.

The property

This interesting, stone-built, end of terrace cottage is situated in a quiet courtyard setting in the heart of the famous village of Haworth.

This delightful cottage has been lovingly furnished to provide a stylish holiday home, ideal for a romantic break in this enchanting historic area.

Full of character, the accommodation seamlessly combines original features, including the exposed stonework and traditional beams with a beautiful mixture of antique and contemporary furnishings.

Set over two floors, there is a fabulous open plan sitting room with a gas stove, lovely shaker-style kitchen, wooden floor and a leather Chesterfield sofa.

With hanging hops adding further character and warmth to the room this is an ideal place to relax after a day walking across the wild and rugged Bronte countryside.

The main bedroom boasts a feature double bed with views through an alley way to the village centre and there is an adjoining bathroom and useful single bedroom, styled to provide a holiday retreat of some considerable merit.

The elevated patio terrace adjacent to the cottage provides the perfect area to sit outside and relax after exploring the village and surrounding areas.

Steeped in literary history and formerly home to the Bronte sisters, Haworth has a lot to offer, from a variety of walks following in the footsteps of Catherine and Heathcliff, to lovely old curiosity shops, delightful cafes and good old fashioned, traditional pubs on the doorstep.

Nearby is Skipton, voted as the Best Place to Live in Britain in 2014, with its cobbled streets and delightful castle, while further afield is the interesting old Calderdale town of Hebden Bridge with its hippy culture and fabulous night life.

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.
