  • "What a lovely cottage!"

    ! Fully equipped, so no need to stress about the mundane things to take with you. ( we had taken teatowels, matches, towels - everything bar the kitchen sink to be honest!!) The cottage was warm and welcoming with a lovely card to welcome us, fresh flowers, and a great welcome hamper including gifts for our 4 legged friends too. The area was lovely and quiet, and walking the dogs at 5:45am we could hear the local owls which was a bonus. We haven't been to Haworth for years although we live near, and it was so nice to go back, and we won't leave it for so long next time. Technically we were'nt on holiday as our house was being worked on and we needed to move out, but it felt like a mini holiday even though we were still commuting to work! Can't recommend this cottage highly enough, if you're looking for comfort and a beautifully quiet location, then this is ideal. A real home from home! Thank you so much!!

    Lovely cottage, on arrival someone parked in our space so maybe the space allocated needs more signage, they moved after we had unpacked, so not sure whether this happens often or was on one off, could not fault the cottage or location despite this

    Plenty of walks nearby and within a few minutes you're out in the countryside. Its well furnished and very comfortable with everything you need for either a short or longer stay. The welcome pack on arrival was a really nice touch and most appreciated, I would definitely stay here again and recommend to other as very good value for money too.

    The kitchen has everything you would need and more. The cleanliness of the cottage is outstanding, you would never know dogs are allowed to stay here either. Such a comfortable place to stay, would highly recommend and definitely return ourselves. Small courtyard but big enough to sit outside and enjoy a drink. Allocated parking a bonus and location just 1 min walk to Haworth village which is a lovely cobbled Street to explore with shops, eateries and places to drink.

  • "Our initial booking was cancelled very last minute because of an electrical problem with the property."

    Fair enough, but trying to get hold of anybody to talk to at Sykes took well over half an hour on hold each time. The people I did speak to were helpful, and transferred our booking to another property, but it did take Sykes a good two weeks to refund the difference in price, which I thought was unfair, particularly given the time and stress trying to change the booking. (Their first calculation re the difference in cost was wrong, significantly in their favour! Still cost me over half an hour on hold to get through to them to rectify the problem though.) Given how long it takes to get through on the phone, it would have been good to have an email address clearly available on the website.

    Relatively modern "2 up 2 down" but finished to a good standard and cosy. Cottage is literally 90 second walk from the centre of town which is beautiful. Very quiet location and suitable for walks straight from the doorstep.

  • "We felt very comfortable and safe in Changegate Cottage, the accommodation was immaculate and everything had been sanitised ready for us."

    We were left milk and chocolate biscuits and other useful provisions in the cupboards for cleaning and Tea and Coffee etc. The surrounding area was quiet and we had very easy access to the facilities in Haworth just 2 mins walk to Haworth Steam Brewery for an evening meal or just 5 mins walk to The Fleece, both with very good food and drinks. There is a Spar Supermarket in Mill Hey a short ride away if you don't want to walk back up the hill. Having a designated parking space on site was a definite bonus, we walked everyday straight from the cottage across the moors loving the area and luckily the weather was good to us. The best and longest walk was to Bronte Waterfalls and further on to Top Withens, along a part of the Pennine Way, then back on the other side of the Reservoir which then we went back up on the Moors to Haworth, the scenery is magnificent.

    The owners did an excellent job to make us feel welcome by ensuring we had everything needed from cooking facilities and household equipment such as an iron and a Smart TV to the generous welcome pack that included milk, bread, crisps and a toy for our dog. The cottage in general was cosy and very clean and I would highly recommend this to anyone thinking of staying in Haworth.

  • "Can't fault anything with our stay."

    The holiday home is cosy but doesn't feel cramped, loads of room for the 4 of us plus dog. It's spotlessly clean and everything is provided. The location is fantastic only a couple of minutes walk to the top of Main Street, although you wouldn't know it - it's so quiet once you are inside. Parking space for 1 car is a bonus but we were told to speak to the attendant in the public car park opposite for our other cars and he would sort something out - he did £10 to park all week. We were left a basket full of provisions for our stay including milk, bread, Christmas chocolate yule log, tea & coffee - even a toy for the dog. I would definitely recommend Changegate Court for a stay in Haworth any time of the year.

  • "We loved the cottage, it was better than advertised."

    Very clean and perfectly set up. Simple, thoughtful surprises like tea bags in the caddy and milk and fruit juice in the fridge were lovely. The welcome basket included a toy for "G" our border terrier which was wonderful. If we had any concern at all it was the sofas. In common with many other cottages/apartments we have rented, they looked great but were not all that comfortable. We stayed in on one of the nights and would have preferred something a little more 'suggly' with higher backs and softer cushions. This is not to complain, we had a great time and were more than happy with everything else about the cottage. in fact, if we could bring two dogs we would definitely book again next year.

    The ‘welcome basket’ was excellent - in particular, the biscuits were delicious! The soft towels, fresh flowers and other homely touches, have made our stay there all the more enjoyable. Also, an ideal location for popping into Haworth - the Bronte Parsonage Museum and St. Michael and All Angels Church are well worth a visit. The Villette Bakery has a wonderful range of scrumptious cakes and pies! Plus, the Fleece Inn serves good food. Hardcastle Crags and Gibson Mill are ideal for a short walk. Salts Mill has an excellent David Hockney Art Exhibition. East Riddlesden Hall and Gawthorpe Hall are lovely places to visit. Best wishes. Jan

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.
