    “The cottage was set in the most beautiful location.”

    The garden is a lovely extra and gets the sun all day. The cottage has everything you need for your stay (kitchen equipment, condiments, tea and coffee, etc) and is very comfortable and exceptionally clean. The basket of treats was welcome on arrival - thank you! ...

    The garden is a lovely extra and gets the sun all day. The cottage has everything you need for your stay (kitchen equipment, condiments, tea and coffee, etc) and is very comfortable and exceptionally clean. The basket of treats was welcome on arrival - thank you! Oxenhope has a local coop which is in walking distance. The local pubs are all very friendly. The village of Haworth is within walking distance and is full of history - Haworth Old Hall does excellent food. There are various cycle tracks and routes around the area but beware, it is very hilly! Overall I would recommend Yate cottage to any couple. A wounderful escape to the country! Thanks for sharing your wonderful home.

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.
