  • "It is a well equipped, comfortable cottage in a quiet corner of the village."

    We were pleased with the welcome we all received - even biscuits for our dog! Thanks for all the local information, including a detailed local map which was invaluable for finding the numerous local walking routes.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. Our doggy guests are equally as important to us as our human one’s !! Glad you enjoyed the surroundings. We also love the peace, quiet and beauty of the area :) Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely, relaxing stay at Box Tree Cottage."

    It was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The beds were very comfortable and having 2 lovely bathrooms was a real luxury. There are lots of lovely walks straight from the door so we didn’t even need to use the car very much. The surrounding countryside is beautiful. The owners were quick to respond when we had a minor plumbing problem which was really helpful.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback and very glad you enjoyed your stay. Your understanding over the faulty tap was very much appreciated and we always try to address any issues as quickly as possible so that you have the best stay possible. Hope to see you again! Property Owner

  • "Beautiful, extremely clean cottage in a peaceful corner of the village."

    Well equipped, we had everything we could have needed. The beds were really comfortable, we slept exceptionally well. Another plus was the full sized towels. So many times we go away and the towels provided are tiny! Thank you so much, oh and for the wine too, it was lovely.

    Feedback either positive or negative is much appreciated. I am so glad yours is positive as we try really hard to keep Box Tree perfect. Thanks very much :) Property Owner

    Ideally placed for seeing the area. Not too far away from any places you would want to see. The steam railway is a must

    Thanks so much for your feedback. Box Tree is in a beautiful corner of the world so very happy you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again! Property Owner

  • "Simply superb holiday cottage located in a surprisingly quiet corner of the village."

    Accomodation spotlessly clean with all you require for a break from the norm (although another baking tray would be helpful for some) Heating controllable and certainly adequate for us. If you are a keen walker - there is a fantastic array of footpaths directly from the door. We tried as many as we could fit in - visit every scrap of open access and you won't be disappointed - embrace the mud though as it is everywhere in March. Parking - not suitable for anything bigger than a SWB VW Transporter. It was a tight fit and this wasn't an issue as our van didn't need to move all week. Pubs - if you are a fan of decent beer look no further than the excellent Bay Horse in the village. We tried a few and this was the best by far. A real locals pub - no food that we witnessed on our several visits there. Highly recommended!

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. The baking tray is noted and on its way. If you ever visit again we have recently acquired a bigger parking space which is about 30 yds from the cottage, a little walk I know but handy if you have a large vehicle. I will let Sykes know Property Owner

  • "A beautifully renovated and well appointed cottage in a secluded part of the village."

    Everything you need for a great stay including a week’s supply of firewood, most generous! Amazing views from the cottage, especially when covered in snow and great walks on the doorstep too. An easy walk to Haworth which is very quaint with lovely shops and pubs. Great meals and a friendly welcome at The Fleece. Can’t fault Box Tree Cottage , but can’t believe The Lamb and The Dog and Gun do not allow dogs especially as this is perfect dog walking country . Friendly welcome at The Bay Horse in the village which does music and quiz nights. A great stay all round . Thank you Jenny

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. I am so glad you had a good break and that Box Tree was cosy and warm. I have taken so many photos of the snow covered hills which are always are joy to see. Hope to see you again soon! Property Owner

    The hosts prepared the cottage for Christmas which was fabulous. Thank you for the Christmas hamper too. Cooking Christmas dinner was made easy with the well equipped kitchen. Such a cosy cottage for spending Christmas was our relatives. We will back in the Spring/Summer when hopefully we can enjoy the surroundings too.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. It really makes a difference and it’s always good to know that we’re doing it right. Happy New Year Property Owner

  • "Our second stay at this lovely property, Box Cottage is set in the perfect location of Oxenhope, with views of the hills from bedroom windows."

    In good weather, we used the patio table at the front. (There is no back garden). Excellent dining pub up on the moor a 5 minute drive away, or you can walk to another for a drink just around the corner. 7 mile drive to Hebden Bridge or only 2 to Haworth, the cottage couldn't be better placed in this area. A great local shop just a 10 minute walk away (quite a steep hill on return) or slightly further to see the vintage railway station. At the cottage itself, the beds and bedlinen are superbly comfortable with a real luxury feel. Two bathrooms are a bonus. Wifi was reliable. TV adequate. Sofa not particularly comfortable but armchairs are fine. Our only slight quibble this time was that we needed to quickly buy £10 worth of basic household items for the kitchen as they weren't anywhere to be found, but this may have been an oversight, as it hadn't happened on our previous trip. The local shop has everything you might need, plus a great fresh bakery. We hope to return.

    Thank you so much for your informative feedback. Please accept my apologies as of course there should be basic household items in the property. I have spoken to the cleaning company about this and I will reimburse you for your inconvenience. I look forward to welcoming you again to Box Tree at some time in the future. Kind regards, Martine Property Owner

    Everything we needed was provided. It's in such a beautiful location and the layout is brilliant for 2 couples with the bedrooms and bathrooms separated by the stairs. It was an extremely enjoyable holiday.

    Beautiful views from the bedroom, ideally situated for everywhere we wanted to visit, in fact we visited 12 different places within the week we were there! All within a 10 mile radius. We ate at The Dog and Gun, excellent Lamb Henry and The Robin Hood Inn, also excellent food . A very welcome bottle of wine in the fridge to welcome us was a nice touch. Parking the car could be tricky for larger vehicles, however we managed with a Ford Focus OK Would definitely recommend this cottage

    Box Tree was the cleanest and most comfotable. The interior designs were modern but the historic also came out in the fabric ofthe building.The silence from the roadsand fields around was stunning. Just right for relaxation and recuperation . The generous spirit o the owners exuded through the whole building...from the bottle of wine in the fridge to the umbrella at the door . Loved our stay.

  • "Box cottage Oxenhope."

    Well presented clean heating was left on really lovely. Loo seats need repairing very wobbly No enclosed garden this property allows dogs it’s not dog friendly. Front garden can’t let you dog out and no back garden at all. Sykes state …. No food to be left, nothing in the dishwasher or fridge so we arrived and all 3 had something in? Disappointing given the long list of what you must do when your there and before you leave. Sadly we had to leave early but highly recommended just don’t take a dog it will ruin your holiday

    Thank you for your useful feedback. In response the loo seat has been tightened. During January 2022 chicken wire is being installed along the bottom rungs of the outer fencing to make the front and back outside space more secure for dogs. The wine in the fridge and the Christmas food hamper were left for you as a complementary gift for the festive season Sykes suggest a 'to do' list on leaving to try and minimalise any covid impact but it's not set in stone as we clean thoroughly on check out. However, thank you for leaving everything clean and tidy. Property Owner

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.

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.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Last minute
  • Christmas
