  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week’s stay in Bull Hill cottage."

    A lovely peaceful location with a warm welcome from the hosts. Bull Hill cottage is excellently situated to explore the local area - Howarth and the Brontë Museum are very close and Salts Mill gallery only a short drive away. There are many walks but the inclement weather and time prevented us from exploring them. A lovely place to return to. Thank you!

  • "We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage, would recommend to others ,only downside ,the two lanes leading up to the cottage are really hazardous, very uneven ,we struggled to get the car up and down ."

    We had to park the car up near the factory top of the lane ,would recommend the lane to made level either side with either concrete or tarmac then nobody's car will get damaged underneath, apart from that ,it's a beautiful place ,very cosy ,quiet and peaceful.

  • "This was the second time we have visited this lovely property."

    The first time our car died but we had a relaxing time and felt a bit like locals relying on the local transportation. Our second visit was equally as good. The cottage is well equipped and on arrival we were once again met with much appreciated supplies...bread, milk, orange juice and fresh eggs from the roaming, friendly chickens! The chocolate on each bed was a nice touch. The owners obviously want you to enjoy your stay and are not at all intrusive. They even posted our daughter's blouse that she left there. With a new car we were able to visit the places we missed last time such as, Harrogate, Ilkley moor and Settle. Yorkshire has wonderful countryside! Once again a lovely time was had, in a lovely location and wonderful accommodation

  • "The property was perfect for us as a holiday cottage to come back to after a day out."

    Comfortable, functional, clean and had everything we needed. The surroundings were tranquil with trees, greenery, babbling brook, chickens rooting around and a cat to keep us entertained (not belonging to the property, I hasten to add) We liked the fact that it was near the essentials eg Co-Op but was off-road down a private lane. We would come here again if we had the chance

  • "Being somewhat elderly I found the stairs quite steep especially in the night when having to use the bathroom which is on the ground floor."

    Due to the amount of rain the lane approaching the cottage became flooded and remained muddy. It is also very uneven and extreme care is needed when driving along it. Apart from that the cottage is lovely well equipped clean and in a really peaceful setting next to the brook and the hens wandering around.

    Impeccably presented throughout. Everything about the cottage was easy. Loved watching the chickens whilst sitting on the peaceful patio area. Ideally situated to enjoy walks from the door into the countryside. A couple of nice pubs in the village or the lovely village of Haworth with it's shops and pubs is an easy walk/drive/steam train ride away.

  • "Overall the property was good: the split level kitchen/diner and steps up to comfortable lounge was very pleasant; the bedrooms although small were adequate."

    It was enjoyable to watch the local hens from the window every day. The owner was very helpful in helping to operate the oven and heating programmer. The real downfall was the access which was a long, narrow and very bumpy which meant we were very reluctant to go out in the evening. The village was nice with good amenities and the start of the little steam railway, plus close proximity to Haworth.

  • "Bull Hill Cottage was the perfect getaway over the christmas period."

    It was clean/comfortable/well kept and a great family space. The little touches of milk/bread/eggs on arrival and chocolates on the pillow were a really thoughtful touch and made the property more welcoming on arrival. After a really tough couple of months post losing my brother to suicide in september- this christmas was going to be a tough one all round. We were then let down by a previous property I booked so ended up booking bull hill cottage VERY last minute- simply to be in close proximity to family in yorkshire. I know its just a property but it really did save christmas for me- allowing me to cook my mum and brother xmas dinner in its beautiful kitchen diner area overlooking the chickens- and allowing a comfortable chilled out area to just relax for a few days. I wish the owners all the luck. I hope to stay again in the future. There were no negatives. Thankyou guys!

  • "Bull Cottage was a great place to stay."

    As Yorkshire folk now living in Orkney, Bull Cottage was ideally placed for visiting family and old haunts. The interior was minimal and well done, the heating soon warmed the place up. The only tiny issue was the outside light has a really short activation period. This did create a slight issue when loading the car in the pitch black. I'll certainly use Bull Cottage again the next time I am down for a full week.

    We liked the layout, little stream & the friendly roaming chickens. Helpful owners close by and very thoughtful welcome gift. Local pub is short uphill walk but only does food (pizza) on Thurs unfortunately. Great though. Only v minor improvement would be coat hooks in hall and a hall mat for shoes. Would stay again without hesitation.

    Nothing could have added to the holiday with everything needed being supplied - some really nice touches with the little extras being really appreciated - things like the cot already being made up with mattress, milk, eggs, bread all being supplied on arrival. Grayson really enjoyed being able to feed the chickens. Heating warmed the property really quickly, shower nice and powerful - really nothing I would chose that would have made the holiday any better (maybe a little less rain but can't have everything :))

    The cottage is outstanding, well equipped, clean, spacious and modern. In a great location too, as loads to do and see without travelling too far, for example Oxenhope station, the co-op, Haworth, bronte waterfall, Bingley five rise locks, hardcastle crags, Bolton abbey, to name a few. Would also recommend Sykes.

    The setting is so tranquil with a bubbling stream, bird song throughout the day, and no intrusive sounds (cars, etc) at all. The interior of the cottage is outstanding, with fabulous attention to detail. The hosts were so kind and attentive, yet not at all intrusive - James & Vikki just wanted us to be happy! The space inside the cottage feels roomy, and it was certainly helped by the large patio area. We enjoyed a couple of BBQs and the toddler loved the safe enclosed patio. The wee one also was thrilled to feed the chickens every day with little food waste. There is so much to do in the immediate area, including walks & bike rides from the cottage, the local steam train, and loads of attractions nearby. I definitely hope to return to the same property if it is available!

The property

Following a journey down a gorgeous tree-lined country lane, passing over an idyllic running stream, Bull Hill Cottage rests next to the owner's home in the quaint West Yorkshire village of Oxenhope.

Sleeping up to four guests, this converted outbuilding offers beautiful split-level accommodation, set amidst the owner's grounds which includes open fields with free range chickens.

After a satisfying work out on the moors, relax in the first-floor sitting room beneath the oak beams, with a wall-mounted Smart TV, a sofa and an easy chair, you can wind down with pretty views out of the window to the trees to accompany you.

The kitchen/diner rests on the middle floor of this split-level accommodation, just four steps up from the ground floor, and presents a beautiful space to prepare and enjoy your meals, with fitted integrated units and all the appliances you need.

From here step out onto the pretty enclosed terrace, where you can hear the stream running nearby creating an idyllic scene, enjoy summer evening drinks here or dine alfresco at the bistro set.

The excellent bathroom which features a bath with a shower over rests on the ground floor, along with the twin bedroom, whilst the double bedroom lies on the first floor and has a Smart TV, with both bedrooms enjoying furniture for storage and pretty bed linen and decor.

Find the public footpath which rests nearby to embark on a walk exploring the area, or stroll down the country lane and into the village to find the shop and two pubs.

The neighbouring village of Haworth with its cobbled streets is a charming place and is home to the Bronte Parsonage Museum, the family home of the famous writers which displays personal items, manuscripts and letters by the sisters, one of whom so famously described the rugged beauty of the area in the novel Wuthering Heights.

Enjoy a ride on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, taking a big and noisy adventure on a steam train to visit the set of The Railway Children and experience what a vintage carriage is like, and if that's not enough trains then discover the Museum of Rail Travel in Keighley, home to a selection of vintage trains.

Also in Keighley is the Keighley Bus Museum for more vintage transport, as well as Cliffe Castle, a Victorian millionaire's former home offering a fascinating day out, and the National Trust's East Riddlesden Hall with beautiful formal gardens, a tearoom and wonderful period furnishings.

For a taste of Yorkshire adventure, discover Another World Adventure Centre just outside Keelham, with exciting activities including mountain boarding, archery, go kart building and racing, bumper balls and several more!

You are also within reach of Ogden Water Country Park with a beautiful lake and ambling trails, the Dales gateway town of Skipton with its castle and the historic market town of Halifax.

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.
