  • "Absolutely amazing time here again."

    This was our third time here. Pleased to see some updates had been done, we had a couple of issues which Ruthanne sorted for us. Really wonderful week, we’ve already booked again for next year! To improve further maybe some extra kitchen items such as extra glasses would be good. Thank you.

  • "Thank you Ruthann we had a lovely stay in your property."

    Kids loved playing on retro arcade games in the second lounge. We enjoyed walking the dog in the surrounding walks & walking to local pub Ring of Bells for lovely food & were even invited to join their jubilee celebrations.

  • "This is a great place to stay if you want to be outdoors in the countryside."

    Three local pubs within walking distance, and local walking paths. If I was to recommend anything to this property then it would be to add a stair rail to the steps which would be very helpful for elderly guests and have some coat hangers for coats and jackets. Since we rented at winter time we were constantly wrapping up for the cold weather and had no where to hang our coats except over the furniture. Other than that Ruth Ann the owner was extremely accommodating and helpful always making sure we were okay.

    Accommodation was very comfortable with all home amenities. Welcome pack was also a very nice touch; thank you for a great stay and would definitely return.

  • "A very convenient and comfortable place to stay."

    We appreciated the 'goodies' we found on arrival and we were greeted by a very friendly hostess.Directions to the cottage could be a little clearer-it is tucked away and easy to miss.However we enjoyed our short stay and found the surrounding countryside to be very pleasant.

  • "Absolutely love this place."

    The setting is wonderful. It is very well appointed. We had a couple of minor issues which the owner sorted for us and offered us an extra night to make up for it. We really love this place and would love to come again. Really recommend it. The welcome goodies are fab and it’s a spacious beautiful home. Thank you

  • "We had a great week - chose Moscow Mews for two reasons, it was very dog friendly and the location suited us for combining holiday with visits to family in neighbouring East Yorkshire."

    If you are a dog person - Moscow Mews is for you, it has french doors opening onto a secure back garden; there is also an open front garden area and parking area, which leads directly to a pathway (fenced on one side and walled on the other) taking you down to the road and a number of other walks -our dog just loved it, If you are not travelling with dogs, the interior facilities might be a bit tired/basic for you. That said, there is certainly plenty of space and it was all warm, clean and tidy. Downstairs, there are two sitting areas, a small toilet, and a large kitchen diner. Upstairs, three bright, spacious bedrooms, one en-suite and a family bathroom - both with excellent showers. The king size beds were a bit hard for our aging bones, so we used the twins, which were very comfortable. The owner kept in touch to check we were ok, and she left a very nice selection of welcome goodies to keep us going.

  • "Moscow Mews is a brilliantly appointed cottage with plenty of room for six adults."

    On arrival we were greeted by our lovely host and were delighted to find freshly laid eggs, biscuits, milk, orange juice and wine waiting for us in the kitchen. The bedrooms are all well sized and comfortable and the view from the master suite is the icing on the cake. The bathrooms are clean and modern and there is plenty of hot water and good pressure in the showers. Downstairs there are two comfortable lounges, one with a charming wood burning stove and the other with a retro gaming table and a big screen smart TV. So whether you want to snuggle by the fire or watch the latest show on Netflix you are well sorted. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need including that most illusive of holiday rental kit, good sharp knives. The rear garden has seating for at least six and would have been great for outside dining but the weather prevented us from trying that. The location of the cottage is brilliant for exploring the many delights West Yorkshire has to offer and is within comfortable driving range for Halifax, Bradford, Hebden Bridge, Huddersfield and Leeds. There are two good pubs within walking distance which were open when we visited (the White Horse and the Ring O Bells) sadly the Rock n Heifer was not open but looked very interesting. The two pubs which were open do excellent food which is available for take away as well as eating in. Social distancing is taken very seriously in the area and most tourist attractions have sanitation stations and one way systems to help keep visitors and staff safe. I would not hesitate to recommend Moscow Mews and look forward to returning as there is still much we didn’t get to see in this lovely piece of the world. Oh and if you do stay here make sure to check out the egg honesty box as there are many delights to be purchased, including the best red cabbage I’ve tasted since my grandma’s.

  • "This is the second cottage rental we have had through Sykes and have found the service provided to be excellent."

    The properties are accurately described and reasonably priced. Considering the increase in people vacationing in the UK this year, it was good to find that Sykes and their owners maintained their normal prices, unlike many other companies. I will definitely look for future rentals through Sykes again.

  • "We had a really bad time last year in one of your properties and so we were very nervous this time."

    Also we really wanted Anglesey so we’re disappointed we could only get Yorkshire. However, this holiday has been one of the most relaxing ones I’ve ever had. The house is amazing and I can’t wait to return!! The welcome pack left was lovely and the house was just perfect. So very happy and glad that we went there!! Thank you.

  • "From the beginning of this holiday to the end it was AMAZING!"

    Me and my friends had come to stay for my 23rd birthday at this beautiful spacious cottage. When we arrived we we noticed they had left fresh eggs that were layed the same day, loaf of bread, oreos packet (my all time favourite), butter, jam, honey and a bottle of wine! The host helped us in terms of getting us bits and bobs that were'nt in the house such as cellotape for stickign up banners, the host was very approchable and worked to satisfied our every needs. She was also really quick when responding to text and calls. The place was beautiful inside, it gave off a really cosy feeling. the garden space was also enough for a bbq and playign mini games, there was nice seating spaces wit comfortable cushions. Our afternoon walks in the country side were really relaxing and had amazig views. The bedroom which has a en suite bathroom had amaing window views and was so nice to wake up in the morning. I live about 120 miles away from the place, and would 100% make the effort to come back with friends again in the future. Thank you for having us and letting us stay as your beautiful property.

    She gave us fresh eggs from her farm which was thoughtful. It was really home away from home. The location of the property just sets in a peaceful and relaxing area overseeing the beautiful hills and valleys of the Dales. How can i forget the master bedroom with ensuite, just amazing. Sitting on the patio and listening to birds chirping was just the most beautiful sounds. Looking forward to booking again in the future.

    The place is great too. Instructions on some of the appliances could be helpful, especially for the central heating control (we eventually found it at top of stairs), the large TV and the cooker hob. We also managed to get matches for the fire place from the neighbour.

The property

Perched on the outskirts of Bradford city and within striking distance of the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is this heart-warming retreat, Moscow Mews.

Perfect for a friends and family gathering, this spacious accommodation promises a memorable stay within an area housing something to suit all ages and tastes.

Upon entering the cottage, you and your loved ones are welcomed by the sitting room which benefits from charming exposed beams and a roaring woodburning stove offering a sense of tranquillity after a day exploring the area.

Beyond here is the well-equipped kitchen housing all the necessities the designated chef will need to rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal.

If you fancy an hour away from the rest of the group, step into the second sitting room where you will be able to plan the days ahead or enjoy reading a book in peace.

After an adventure-filled day you can look forward to retiring to one of the three bedrooms, consisting of a king-size bedroom with an en-suite, a king-size bedroom and a twin bedroom, ensuring a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit your family.

Spend a moment or two within the rear garden area, where you and your loved ones can tuck into breakfast whilst taking in the rural views.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, make your way to the local pub where you will be greeted to a welcoming atmosphere and a superb dining menu to complement.

Venture into the nearby city of Bradford where you can explore its Victorian heritage and magnitude of museums, galleries and many fine dining experiences.

Brush up on the local history further by visiting the village of Haworth where you can wonder through the cobbled main street, the iconic parsonage or stroll along the rolling moorland.

Moscow Mews is a wonderful cottage for exploring an area steeped with history and culture.
