The property

Set in an elevated position overlooking the gorgeous green landscapes of the West Yorkshire countryside, is this picture postcard property, Box Tree Cottage.

Renovated to a high standard throughout whilst retaining character and charm from many original features and traditional furnishings, this striking stone dwelling is perfectly suited to a family or group of four travelling with their canine companions to this spectacular part of the country.

Leave your mud-splattered boots by the door and place your coats to hang in the vestibule, before retreating to the blissful sitting room to relax and unwind whilst the heat of the arresting woodburning stove warms your feet.

Cross the gorgeous, tiled floor to the delightful kitchen/diner, home to a good selection of appliances such as an electric cooker with hob, sure to inspire many delicious home-cooked meals throughout your stay.

Joining the space is a fabulous dining area with a gorgeous oak table and pretty, antique chairs, together offering a wonderful space to chat with loved ones over a hot cup of coffee and a tasty afternoon treat.

Making your way up the staircase, you will be greeted by two well-appointed bedrooms; the first bedroom boasts a roomy kind-size bed from which to enjoy early morning views across the luscious open fields, along with a sophisticated en-suite shower, whilst just a few steps away the quaint and peaceful twin room has the benefit of an en-suite bathroom.

Make the most of warmer weather with dinner alfresco out on the front patio, or soak up the sunshine as you lose yourself in a captivating novel and a refreshing glass of wine.

Experience the very best that the area has to offer with strolls along the banks of the glistening Leeming Water to Leeming Reservoir, before grabbing a pint and a bite to eat at the fantastic local pub.

Hike through the encompassing countryside and uncover the enchanting Bronte Waterfall, Ponden Kirk Fairy Cave and the abandoned stone farmhouse of Top Withens.

Watch as steam trains depart from Oxenhope Station, or venture down to Causeway Foot for a fun-filled day of Archery and Mountain Boarding at Another World Activities Centre, a real hit with thrill seekers.

Admire beautiful wildlife on a stroll through Ogden Water Country Park and Boggart Wood, or travel over to the town of Halifax for an afternoon at Manor Heath Jungle Experience and Eureka!

The National Children's Museum.

Over in Keighley, the Keighley Bus Museum and National Trust owned East Riddlesden Hall are well-worth a visit, whilst a pleasant drive away Diggerland Yorkshire and Light Water Valley are a real hit, with something for the whole family to enjoy.

For an unforgettable holiday to Yorkshire with your nearest and dearest, Box Tree Cottage is the place for you!

About the location


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.
