  • “The house is lovely, well equipped and scrupulously clean.”

    The lane/street up to it is a nightmare - massive holes and very bumpy - had to park car on main road as I didn’t want to take it up and down the lane - not a major big deal but I wanted my car in the drive where I could see it

About the property

Nestled within the bustling yet rural village of Thornton, The Coach House is a charming countryside cottage that makes a wonderful base for a family or group of five touring the very best of West Yorkshire.

Spend your evenings in the beautiful cream kitchen as you grab ingredients from the retro blue fridge/freezer and prepare a delicious family feast with the help of the sleek electric oven and hob.

Take your seat at the lovely pine dining table and raise a glass to your adventures in the Yorkshire countryside, before relaxing in the lounge in front of the cosy electric fire.

Venture up the staircase and discover three well-appointed bedrooms including a stylish king-size with muted grey tones, a light and tranquil double with exposed wood beams, and a quaint single bedroom offering the perfect space to retire to at the end of another fun-filled day.

Across the way, a contemporary family bathroom hosting a roomy tub with an overhead shower can be found serving each of the bedrooms, providing guests with the option of a long morning soak or a quick rinse to kick-start their day.

Make the most of warmer weather with afternoons spent lounging on the decking as you enjoy a refreshing glass of lemonade and admire splendid views of the open fields.

The birthplace of the Brontë Sisters, the village of Thornton offers cafes, shops and pubs, whilst Haworth is just a short drive away and home to the popular Brontë Parsonage Museum and Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.

Explore the breath-taking landscapes of Kirkstall Valley Nature Reserve and Leeming Reservoir, whether by foot or bike, or challenge yourself to a brisk hike to the top of Mere Stones.

Travel to Riddlesden and delight in a tour of the National Trust owned East Riddlesden Hall, or travel to the neighbouring town of Halifax to see the historic site of St Stephen's.

Wander the 18th century cloth hall of The Piece Hall Halifax, and explore the scenic woodland of Hardcastle Crags with its imposing 19th century mill.

Over in Kirkstall, the 12th century ruins of Kirkstall Abbey are a must see, whilst Tropical World and Posey Pacas Alpacas make for excellent days out.

Live unforgettable moments with your nearest and dearest on a fabulous holiday to The Coach House.

About the location


Bradford 3 miles; Haworth 7 miles; Keighley 7.5 miles; Leeds 14 miles

Resting in the charming suburbs of the well-stocked city of Bradford is this welcoming stone-built village. Thornton benefits from a pleasing selection of amenities which include shops, pubs and restaurants, along with a café which sits within the building where which the Brontë sisters were born, before they moved to nearby Haworth. On the outskirts of the village, find the striking and Grade II listed Thornton Viaduct which can be seen from the Headley Golf Course close by. Take the short trip into striking Bradford to find attractive architecture, a wealth of shops, bars and eateries and an excellent choice of attractions to keep everybody occupied. Outdoor enthusiasts can reach the Yorkshire Dales National Park with ease, this idyllic landscape abounds in scenic walking and cycling opportunities, with much more going on also. The Brontë family home can be visited in the quaint village of Haworth just a short drive away, while the attractive town of Keighley lies slightly further afield, and the stunning shopping city of Leeds resides just the other side of Bradford.
