  • "Nice comfortable cottage, pity the nice pub up the road was not dog friendly."

  • "We enjoyed our week's stay with our dog at this lovely end-terrace house in Oxenhope."

    The kitchen was well-stocked with new appliances and there was a lovely welcome pack, including delicious ginger-cake, eggs and muffins! The four poster bed was very comfortable and a separate room has views across the valley where one can see alpacas and a rhea (emu?) grazing, through the binoculars kindly provided. The rear garden can be accessed via the cellar or side gate. The property is situated on a short steep incline so might not suit less able-bodied guests but was fine for us. It has off-street parking for one car. It is only about 12 mins walk down to the Co-Op, Post Office and Pharmacy. Oxenhope Station, at the end of the Keighley and Worth Valley Steam Railway, is about 10 mins beyond the Co-Op - well worth a ride. The Lamb Inn serves food and is just a short walk up the hill from the house but sadly does not allow dogs in the bar - there is outside seating. The Bay Horse serves a selection of real ales and allows dogs but does not serve food. The Waggon and Horses, about 10 min drive, serves good food and allows dogs. Other local attractions within easy reach are Haworth, with the Bronte Parsonage, and the Penistone Hills with walks to Haworth and the Bronte Falls. The house also has a leaflet of a lovely walk around Oxenhope and the Leeming Reservoir.

    Off road parking is a great advantage. A nice welcome pack on arrival which was much appreciated. We would stay here again without hesitation. Many thanks Darren and Gill.

  • "The minute I walked into this charming property I knew I was going to enjoy my stay."

    Every room is tastefully furnished. The sofa in the sitting room is exceptionally comfy and ideal for watching the widescreen TV. The kitchen is equipped with every amenity you could think of and it was a pleasure to cook on gas. The welcome hamper was very generous and there was milk, butter and eggs in the fridge. Like other reviewers I have to mention the sumptuous homemade ginger cake. The bedroom with its four-poster bed was also very comfortable and I slept like a baby every night. There is a warm dressing room, plentiful hot water in the shower, and a kind of viewing room with binoculars provided. You will enjoy playing with the electronic blinds. The weather was changeable: on the Saturday I sat outside in the sunshine with a cold drink and on Wednesday and Thursday, it snowed. But that didn’t matter - I lit the wood-burning stove and was very cosy. Mid-week I arranged for a delivery from Morrisons and one lazy evening I had an excellent pizza delivered. There is a spectacular view from every single window and the cottage is aptly named. The snowscapes were particularly exciting. A home from home. The week went so quickly and I was sorry to leave.

  • "What a delightful cottage, we loved our stay."

    Great location to get out & about exploring the area. There was everything that you needed in the cottage. The food hamper was a wonderful surprise & the ginger cake was delicious. There was even dental sticks for the dog.

  • "What an absolutely lovely cottage to stay in."

    Every comfort is provided! Wait until you wake in the morning and look out the front window! Gorgeous! We loved this place and will be sure to come back. We were greeted with so many yummy treats, including Simon's famous cake!! There is even a washing machine and dryer in the cellar. We wanted for nothing and adored the surrounded towns. Even down to having a great place to park! I hope you get a chance to stay one day!

  • "What an absolutely lovely cottage to stay in."

    You'll see my review several times, as we actually stayed at this cottage for several weeks, due to house moving issues. Truly the best ever! Have you ever looked out your back window to see Alpacas? it's a gorgeous place.You will wish for nothing. We will be back no doubt!! Come stay and see all the beautiful sites.

  • "Cottage as described, cosy, comfortable and had everything that you might need."

    We had a lovely week apart from wearing our boots out and our legs feeling like they belong to someone else!!! Only joking the village is welcoming, views and the “on the door step” countryside walks are fantastic. Would not hesitate to recommend this property or location. Many thanks, Mal & Debbie (Worcestershire)

  • "Lovely cottage, tastefully decorated through out."

    Generous welcome pack( including fresh eggs). Off street parking a great bonus. Nice little garden space perfect for sunny days. BBQ available. Access to garden either via gate at side of house or down kitchen staircase, these definitely needed a bannister. Perfect views, lovely walks, handy for many places to visit, although village road gets busy at peak times. Co-op store and Pub at either end of road within walking distance. Had a great week.

The property

Resting in the idyllic countryside village of Oxenhope, West Yorkshire is Heights View, a pretty end-terrace cottage set over three floors.

Home to a picture-perfect garden while being within walking distance of local amenities, this delightful dwelling is perfect for a romantic retreat, whether it be staying in and enjoying some quality time with your loved on, or venturing out and discovering the beautiful surrounding areas.

Stepping into the property, the woodburning stove in the sitting room creates a welcoming amber glow, warming the space and inviting you in to kick off your shoes and snuggle up to watch TV.

From here, whip up your breakfasts in the kitchen/diner, where you will find an electric oven and hob, a microwave and a handy dishwasher so you don't need to worry about the clean up.

Enjoy your meals at the dining table while you plan the day ahead, before making your way up to the first-floor reading room to escape with a good book.

When sleep calls, head to the bedroom for some well-earned rest.

The cottage is home to a gorgeous four-poster double bed where you can rest your head after a long day of exploring the local area.

Guests will also benefit from a bathroom fit with a bath, a shower over, a basin and a WC, along with a heated towel rail so you can look forward to a toasty towel after a relaxing bubble bath.

Take advantage of the outdoor space at the property; the garden has been thoughtfully planned to provide a tranquil space, perfect for the summer evenings.

Enjoy your meals al fresco and savour a glass of wine in the last of the summer sun while the waterfall feature babbles away peacefully.If you don't fancy cooking, there are plenty of restaurants in the surrounding towns and villages such as the Dog & Gun Inn, a gastropub in a 17th century tavern, or Cobbles & Clay for a tasty brunch one afternoon.

For things to do while you're staying in Heights View, why not take a day trip to the lively town of Skipton and take in the wonderful town for all its history and its now thriving community.

The area is known for its magnificent landscapes; spend your days wandering the countryside lanes discovering some of the hidden delights.

Famously, the Bronte sisters resided in the area and the town of Haworth plays homage to them with the Bronte Parsonage Museum and the outdoor activity centre named in their honour as Bronte Walks, which offer tours and guides.

If you prefer a more relaxed approach to your walks, set off on foot from the doorstep of the property, or perhaps take a short car journey to look out for specific points of interest, such as Bronte Waterfall and Shibden Park.

For a romantic retreat in a picturesque area, choose Heights View.

Please be aware for Short Breaks the changeover days are ONLY Monday & Friday.

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.
