    Nice Cottage, but is a bit style over substance. Does not justify the premium put on it. First and foremost, the cottage is nice, comfortable, clean and tidy. The owners seem friendly and helpful, and when you enter, you get a nice feeling. If you book this cottage, I am sure that you will have a good time. The area is nice, and local towns area wonderful with great food and pubs. However, we paid a premium price for what we believed was a premium cottage - unfortunately, in this regard it is more style over substance. The fridge in the kitchen was not working and awaiting a part (there was one in the utility room, but again, you expect this to be done), and even things like a wine bottle opener on the wall that you could not use. The shower in the main bathroom would only get hot when you turned it up to full and only turned it on a little bit (ie. low pressure). The heating is remotely controlled (I can only think to save cost), and we had one cold day with no heating, and the hottest day of the year so far when the heating was fully on. Both the cold on the cooler day, and the heat on the hot day were beyond uncomfortable and probably was he main reason we confirmed our decision to leave the cottage early. We believe that there was no underfloor heating in the lounge, or if it was, it didn't work, so be aware that the lounge is always cool. A fire does help heat it. Of course, some of these things can happen, but it feels that this is too much and my guess is that some of the issues are not new. The cottage is dog friendly from the point of view of stone and wooden floors. You can open the back door out onto the patio, and your dog can have a run on the attached field. However, be aware that the enclosed patio is not enclosed and private. The family next door, especially the children, constantly use it as a route through to the field and the road (3-4 times an hour someone was on your patio during the weekend and bank holiday Monday), and at one point, a local person who knew the neighbour came onto the patio with his 8-10 dogs to have a 15 min chat with the neighbour next door. We shut the door to the property to ensure we didn't get any of the other dogs in. We noticed children's play things on the drive by our cars also, and at one point, sure a motorbike was going to come around to the neighbours if they hadn't seen us going out to the car. This was really disconcerting when you are in your property. The area has some great places to eat - strongly recommend the Haworth Steam Brewing Company in Haworth main street, and also The George in Cullingworth - both dog friendly and great food (The Haworth Steam Brewing Company doesn't allow dogs in really busy times, I believe). The Dog and Gun is nice and friendly, and good food, but do not accept dogs even though most places on the internet say they do - new owners stopped the dogs. Anyway, summary - a nice place that I am sure you will enjoy and have a good time, but has too many issues that detract from the price you pay. We did message the owners about the heating, and have fed back about the neighbours and the shower (both of which I am not sure they were aware of). That said, you don't want to spend your holiday messaging the owners about all of the issues all of the time. So, until the issues are resolved, they give you control of the heating, and stop the neighbours using your patio as their own, then you can probably get a better place for cheaper. If you do book it, be aware of the issues.

The property

Oxenhope 1.5 miles.

A superb semi-detached cottage in an enviable countryside location, close to the village of Oxenhope.

This lovely cottage is beautifully-presented with Georgian style throughout, retaining the character and charm of the original dwelling with restored features, including exposed beams, stone fireplaces and a heated stone floor.

Set over two floors the cottage provides two luxurious bedrooms that are sure to delight guests, one including en-suite facilities.

The first floor is complete with a first-class family bathroom including a bath to soak in after a day out exploring the nearby open moorland in the Bronte Country.

Downstairs, there is an exquisite sitting room featuring a large woodburner, exposed on either side of the stone wall to also provide heat to the fabulous kitchen/diner.

Outside, the spacious garden overlooks rugged Yorkshire moorland, providing delightful views stretching for miles and an ideal setting to enjoy alfresco dining or a glass of wine in the evening sun.

Walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep and at the bottom of the lane, a short stroll from the cottage, The Dog and Gun pub offers an excellent watering hole for a well-earned drink.

Within a five minutes’ drive brings you to Oxenhope where you will find pubs and a small supermarket.

A little further afield, Haworth brings visitors from far and wide due to its old world charm and connection to the famous Bronte sisters, and walks from here can be enjoyed to areas including Top Withens, the famous setting for Wuthering Heights.

Other places to visit include the popular market town of Skipton with its celebrated high street and historic castle, as well as the Victorian spa town of Harrogate, boasting a variety of upmarket shops, Turkish baths and an excellent theatre.

This first-class cottage provides a perfect countryside holiday base to explore Bronte Country, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond!

About the location

OXENHOPE

Haworth 2 miles; Hebden Bridge 6 miles; Skipton 14 miles.

The small village of Oxenhope lies amid wonderful scenery, and offers the chance to take advantage of the multitude of walks in the area. The village, with its shops, churches and pubs, is home to the terminus for the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, which runs on a regular basis to Haworth and on down to Keighley. The area was made famous by the Bronte sisters, and the outstanding countryside was famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights as wild, rugged and barren. The area abounds with popular places to visit; the cobbled streets of Haworth, the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the Museum of Rail. The market town of Skipton, known as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate and vibrant Leeds.
