    “This is one of the best cottages we’ve stayed in.”

    The photos don’t do this place justice - in particular, the beautiful, spacious, vaulted open plan living/kitchen area, but also because the owners have updated the furnishings since the photos were taken - bed linen, sofa, cushions - and it’s all very bright and tasteful and comfortable.

    The photos don’t do this place justice - in particular, the beautiful, spacious, vaulted open plan living/kitchen area, but also because the owners have updated the furnishings since the photos were taken - bed linen, sofa, cushions - and it’s all very bright and tasteful and comfortable. It’s in such a peaceful spot up a lane only accessed by a nearby farm so just the odd vehicle and, otherwise, just birdsong interspersed by the distant sound of the steam train (I didn’t realise Oxenhope was on the KWR line and well worth a visit/ride) which makes you feel like you’ve gone back in time. Very comfortable bed too. The kitchen is one of the most well equipped we’ve come across. I had to have words with the oven but there are some tips in the manual. Big windows bring in lots of light and lovely views into the garden and field and across to moorland. Lovely little garden too. Compact bathroom has underfloor heating :-) Bed very comfortable which isn’t always the case with self-catering cottages. We did some great walks - we drove a bit but there are ones on the doorstep too. The owners live next door and we met Graham who was very helpful when we had a couple of questions. Though otherwise didn’t bump into them so felt private. Just watch out when you’re pan frying as there’s no extractor and the smoke alarm was very sensitive even with the door and windows open. Oxenhope has a friendly and well stocked coop which was very handy and only a 5 minute walk.

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.
