  • "Lovely little cottage."

  • "The cottage is lovely, excellent location for the town centre."

    It’s was warm, cozy, spotless and had everything we needed. Great communication with Andrew the owner. Only downside, not with the cottage, but with Sykes, the letting agency, I tried to book on Late rooms but because it was short notice I had to phone Sykes. On doing this they charged me an extra £6 on top of the already high £39 booking fee, there was really no need for it. Other than that I would highly recommend the cottage and would love to return for another stay.

  • "Owl Cottage was a perfect place to stay for me."

    It’s bright and very comfortable with lovely views of the countryside from the front windows. The owner was great at keeping in touch with instructions and helpful information and the cake and milk which were there on arrival were very welcome after a long journey. The car parking is a minute’s walk away, as is the centre of the village, and yet it’s a quiet location. I’d stay there again tomorrow!

  • "This was our fourth or fifth booking via Sykes and we weren’t disappointed."

    A special mention to Andrew the owner who sent the key details, parking etc as well as useful information before we arrived and also checked we had received it. The cottage is located up from Central car park (permit supplied) which is a short walk up Changegate. Its about 50 yrds walk. Changegate is quite narrow so whilst you could drive up and unload quickly you might get beeped at and it is a double yellow line. The road then turns into cobbles to test your suspension! Location wise, Owl Cottage is ideally located for restaurants and café’s etc and the Bronte Parsonage. The Fleece Inn, Old Registry and Hawthorn are all lovely (differing styles and expense). However it is a walk back up! A lot of the shops and restaurants are closed on Monday and/or Tuesday so advance booking is recommended, especially for the Fleece on Monday/Tuesday. The Hawthorn is excellent. The cottage is directly opposite the Old White Lion Hotel which is a pub too but it didn’t disturb us at all. The SPAR and Co-op are useful and well stocked however I wouldn’t describe them as walking distance unless you aren’t buying much and fitter than I. We drove past them on our day trips including to Keighley for petrol. The house itself is lovely and tidy/clean – there were a couple of minor issues with the cleanliness of the bins- but apart from that the cottage is almost new. The bathroom has a good sized walk in shower with waterfall and traditional shower heads. The mirror has shaving socket, demister and lighting though we did find the tap directions slightly confusing. The bedroom is huge with ample storage, plugs, television and a window seat along one window. Bed was so huge and comfortable with lovely linen. The cottage was warm and the Hive thermostat worked well and the windows provided ideal ventilation. The downstairs has a double sofa and a slightly dated chair with foot stall which suited us as the boss had the couch and I took the chair. It was compact and had we used the leaf table (lap trays provided) I am not sure how one of us would have left the table if it still had items on it. The lounge had a decent size tv and DVD player with some books and DVD’s in the unit however somewhat outrageously The Railway Children was not on offer! The kitchen is small partly due to a floor hatch which restricts workspace but it is well equipped with a fan oven, microwave, dishwasher, toaster and kettle. Utensil wise there is a whisk, potato masher, cheese grater, weighing scales (albeit battery flat) etc as well as baking trays to name a few. The frying pan wasn’t particularly large so if you have plans for particular dishes then you might want to take your own. Oven gloves were missing which may be due to covid or an oversight. The workspace is quite cramped but workable as is the fridge. We brought a produce box which I took from a supermarket which had jars of spices, tins of pulses and other items and there wasn’t space to store this unless we had rearranged the whole kitchen! Overall, we really enjoyed the cottage and would definitely consider rebooking.

  • "Owl Cottage, Haworth is a gem."

    It’s light & airy with lovely views towards the hills. It has been modernised to a high standard and boasts an excellent degree of cleanliness & warmth throughout. The kitchen is well equipped & includes a great Neff oven. The Sitting / dining area is cosy & comfortable. A tiny gripe, is the creaky, swivel armchair! The bedroom is stunning! It includes a very comfortable bed with cotton bedding. I enjoyed sitting on the delightful window seat. An excellent shower is in the clean, modern bathroom. Definitely a cottage to revisit.

  • "Absolutely fantastic cottage."

    Immaculately clean, super comfy bed, gorgeous furnishings, hot powerful shower, quiet location yet only 50 yards from eateries, quaint shops, church, walks, moors, Brontë Parsonage, local park and lots of other things too numerous to mention. We walked from the cottage everyday and only used the car once which was to visit the coal mining museum near Wakefield. It was only £5 and definitely worth the drive. Fabulous sunrise every morning from the bedroom across the beautiful valley and of course the Worth Valley Railway, setting of the Railway Children film. We absolutely loved our week at Owl Cottage and cannot wait to return.

  • "This cottage is absolutely lovely, it was cosy, clean and very comfortable."

    The location is amazing, so central that you can just leave the car and have a great holiday. The heating issue was resolved immediately and all communication with Andy pre and during our stay was excellent. The pubs and restaurants in the village are all excellent, not expensive at all. The walking is fantastic, we did the Top Withens, Worth Valley and Railway Children walks to all the stations. The railway is a great day out and the volunteers are very kind and welcoming.

    "Thank you for your feedback following your stay at Owl cottage. We are pleased to see the very positive comments you made in the Guest Book. With regard to a garden we do not of course list a garden as available as you will have seen. The Cottage is in the oldest part of the village and open space is limited. However there is a very pleasant and attractive Central Park only a short walk from the property to sit and enjoy the amenities and this does not detract from the delight of Owl Cottage" Property Owner

    The view is fantastic, and it's extremely close to main street. However, unfortunately the pub opposite the Cottage, have decided to install 2 brand new extremely bright spotlights over there car park. This kept my wife awake every night, I think the new owner may have to install a blackout blind in the bedroom. Just being honest, we still love this lovely cosy little cottage.

The property

Owl Cottage is a superb stone-built, terraced property set at the heart of the pretty village of Haworth, home to the famous Bronte sisters.

Boasting an enviable location, just a stone’s throw away from the famous cobbled Main Street and the many attractions of this lovely village, this is an exceptional find for a couple seeking a romantic break away to this part of Yorkshire.

Set over two floors, this delightful cottage has been renovated to a high standard with the contemporary styling complementing the original features of the property, boasting everything you could possibly need for a self-catering holiday.

After a wonderful day of exploring, relax into your evening within the open-plan living room, where the original, exposed beams frame the inviting sitting area and you can look forward to catching up on TV, with the characterful woodburner-effect fire setting a tranquil ambiance.

Joining the space is a compact, yet well-equipped kitchen, where you and your partner will be delighted to rustle up some tasty meals by making use of the quality appliances, before settling down at the dining table to tuck in, with a bottle of fizz that has been kept chilled in the sleek wine chiller.

Upstairs the super-king-size double bedroom enjoys an elevated position, from which superb views over the surrounding countryside can be seen, so you are promised breath-taking views as you wake up each morning.

Next to the bedroom and completing the accommodation is a stylish shower room with walk-in shower unit.

If you fancy a special treat one evening, take a short stroll into the village centre, where you will find a cluster of traditional pubs, restaurants and cafés, as well as a superb range of shops for picking up sweet treats, gifts and essentials.

Brush up on the village’s history by visiting the Brontë Parsonage Museum or putting on your walking boots to follow the trails of Heathcliffe and Catherine along the famous Top Withens, which is said to have inspired Emma Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, among other fantastic walks upon the surrounding moorland.

Nearby is the market town of Skipton, which has won awards for its cobbled high street, and has independent shops and eateries, as well as a castle dating back to 1090.

Also within driving distance is the Victorian spa town of Harrogate, which has an abundance of attractions, including Turkish Baths and an excellent theatre.

A cosy holiday cottage just right for a romantic retreat in the heart of Bronte Country.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
