  • "We had a very good stay in Box Tree Cottage, due to the excellent preparation done by the owners, in advance of our visit ."

  • "We enjoyed our stay at BoxTree Cottage it was a very clean well equipped cottage in a quiet area ."

    The only thing missing was a hair dryer which we have always had in other cottages The parking space was quite a tight fit but we left the car and explored the local area on the bus .

  • "There was no cottage information booklet in the cottage, no list of numbers for emergencies like doctor, dentist etc, no information about bin days what can and cannot be recycled, if we are suppose to be more environmentally friendly I think the owners of the cottages could do more to help."

    I only found out what is not and can be recycled by checking on the local authority website as this often differs to where you live.

  • "The cottage is in a great location in a beautiful village, with amazing views from the bedrooms."

    The neighbours are very friendly and the food at the local pubs is very good. There’s lots to see and do nearby, with reservoir and a stream really close its very relaxing in the heart of nature and lots of animals to see, eg geese & ducks just down the road and alpacas in a field nearby, not to mention sheep and horses. Kids loved it. We had our dog with us and he found it a big adventure too. Although he didn’t get along with the famous village cat, who was not afraid of big dogs

  • "Had an amazing week at this beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean and had everything you needed."

    The views from the bedroom were fantastic to wake up to in the morning. The added bonus of a pub at the end of the road and numerous walks meant our 2 dogs also enjoyed their first holiday together. Cannot recommend enough and will definitely book again.

    Very well equipped and wonderfully situated.

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.
