  • "Very helpful when we had a minor problem which was sorted very quickly."

  • "Everything as described and in good working order."

    Key safe entry worked perfectly even had a little video from the owner to make sure the process was clear. Just remember it is Yorkshire, the access road is narrow and the hills are steep. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

  • "Great place to stay."

    The view, comfortable beds, complete kitchen washing machine, in the center of all the places we visited, Lots of opportunities for photos on the way. My wife found using the toilet upstairs a bit of a challenge as she has walking sticks.

  • "Very pleasant stay at Bronte Barn, however the plug arrangement in the shower room sink requires attention as it does not appear to function correctly when using the open/close lever."

    Radiator heating times are pre-programmed to come on Morning & Evening, consequently if weather is cold and you are staying in during the day there is no heating availability. These points are not a complaint just food for thought, as overall we had a very pleasant stay in the barn.

    The Owner's did their utmost to provide an enjoyable stay and we thank them for the opportunity. Well done to them and to Sykes also.

    Dear Guest, many thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay. Apologies this response is late. We are very pleased that you had an enjoyable stay, not just in the cottage but also the local area. Thank you for your positive comments about the cottage, we have tried to make it as welcoming as we can. There are a few more things on the 'to do list' for the quieter months. Property Owner

  • "I had a lovely stay in the barn, made all the better by the beautiful weather."

    Comfortable outdoor seating would have been the icing on the cake to enjoy the beautiful view. The area is incredibly hilly so be prepared for a steep road to Haworth.

    Many thanks for your feedback about your stay and are pleased that, on the whole, your break was enjoyable. Unfortunately, we had to remove the lightweight outside furniture as it did cause some problems in the high winds. We were unable to purchase any storage facility, on the farm , to keep it. We will be providing some sturdier furniture which will be fixed down. We have asked Sykes to update the property description to take account of your comments concerning the terrain. Property Owner

  • "Our family (3 adults) had a lovely 4 nights at Bronte Barn, everything we needed was there, & initial access via a keysafe was well described by the owner."

    It was super to sit & look out at the panoramic view over breakfast! The peace,quiet & abundant bird life in the area including goldfinches, a jay, buzzards and barn owls was very special. We found plenty to do, probably rated best was a day rover ticket on the Worth Valley Heritage railway! Other visits in the area included the 17th century Eggleston Manor House at Keighley which was excellent & Haworth and the Bronte Parsonage.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to provide some feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed the cottage and the local area. We don't get to spend time at many of the local attractions so thank you for providing details of the ones you enjoyed. Property Owner

It nestles in this unique setting close to the lovely village of Haworth, surrounded by grazed fields and footpaths.

The staircase leads to the walk in shower room, and the double and a twin bedrooms, both enjoying picturesque views to wake up to each morning.

Head into the nearby village of Haworth (approx 3/4 mile away) where the cobbled High Street and alleyways are steeped in history and not only offer numerous cafés, eateries and pubs but also a variety of independent shops and businesses.

Pay a visit to the Bronte Parsonage museum which was the sisters' home from 1821-1861 or take a walk to Top Withens said to be the inspiration for Wuthering Heights.

In the nearby village of Oakworth you will find pubs, a supermarket and also Branshaw Golf Club.

Visit the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway at Oakworth station where the original Railway Children was filmed.

The market town of Skipton, known as the 'Gateway to The Dales', is well worth a visit or venture a little further afield and enjoy a cream tea in Harrogate.

Manchester and Leeds are in easy reach.

About the location


Haworth 1 mile; Skipton 10 miles.

Oakworth is a small Pennine village just a short drive from Haworth, overlooking the Worth Valley, made famous by the filming of the classic 1970 film version of E.E. Nesbitt's novel, The Railway Children. Besides its close proximity to Haworth and the moors, Oakworth has an attractive ornamental park, and is within easy reach of the town of Keighley. Nearby Haworth was home to the famous Bronte sisters, who were much-inspired by the surrounding moorland. Haworth has a myriad of curiosity and antique shops, alleyways and cobbled streets creating a wonderful period atmosphere, and all this against a backdrop of countryside famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights. Nearby, the famous Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, makes a lovely day out, with a regular service to the old village of Oxenhope. The area is full of popular places to visit, including the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the Museum of Rail. The market town of Skipton, Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate, and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
