    the cottage was extremely modern inside the parking outside was ok if you had a small car (watch your wing mirrors ) the traffic was busier than described even though it was a b road . the views were great across the reservoir to the hills this cottage is better suited for short stay walking breaks as there are walks from the cottage and from oxenhope a mile from the cottage which is actually in Leeming however the cottage is well equipped and clean and modern we didnt know there was wi fi cant remember it described the key safe was a bit fiddly wouldnt like to use it in the dark !!!. A bathmat would have been welcome as the bath didnt have one but overall one of the most comfortable cottages we have had and weve had a lot!!! the welcome pack was a really nice gesture we dont get many of these at cottages we have rented over the years . we knew the area as we walk there regularly as we can be there in 90 mins from home but it was nice to stay and see more of it

The property

This excellent single-storey end-terrace cottage enjoys an enviable location on a high promontory, overlooking a reservoir in lovely rolling countryside on the outskirts of Oxenhope and just two miles from Haworth.

This delightful Yorkshire Dales cottage offers single-storey accommodation, and provides a perfect romantic retreat for those wishing to spend time in this historic area.

Thoughtfully designed and with excellent facilities, this cosy Oxenhope cottage retains much of its character and charm from the original dwelling.

Elegant furnishings are evident throughout this Dales cottage, which features a lovely open plan living space with luxurious underfloor heating, a stylish and compact but well-equipped kitchen and a cosy sitting area.

The spacious, modern double bedroom is a real delight, and offering a large TV, it provides a welcomed respite after a busy day in the great outdoors.

With good views across the reservoir to the surrounding heather-clad, craggy moorlands, this Oxenhope cottage provides a wonderful base to explore the various delights of the nearby Yorkshire Dales and Bronte Country.

The area is blessed with many fine walks, excellent old pubs and good eateries, and the interesting individual shops in the old towns of Skipton and Hebden Bridge can be uncovered within just a short drive.

Steeped in literary history and home to the Bronte sisters, Haworth has much to offer including a variety of walks amongst the iconic, windswept moors.

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.
