  • "Pleasant flat with good views across the valley."

    Enjoyed waking to the call of the farm animals and the curlew in the distance

  • "The property provides a home from home facilities and is more than adequate for your stay."

    The view from the property provides a 360 degrees of beautiful countryside and is breath-taking whilst looking out from the flat or sitting in the garden. The garden provides the space for your dogs to roam and to take in the ambience. The area has plenty of walks to choose from and there is information provided in the flat. The owners Dave and Katie are very warm and welcoming couple and made us feel at home. We enjoyed listening to the animals from their working farm and gave us a comfort of the countryside that we long for. The weather was kind to us and this made are stay more enjoyable to see Yorkshire at its best. I would recommend staying at Highview on Mouldgreave Farm.

    Thank you. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here Property Owner

    It is just perfect. Katie and David are so friendly and both are really interesting people to chat with. The cottage is lovely and snug and clean with a comfy bed and fabulous views. Perfect spot for walking and the paddock is great for sitting out or playing ball with our dogs. Highly Recommend. Sallie ad James Ashworth and our dogs Olive and Maude x

  • "This was the 2nd time we have been to Highview."

    The first for 3 nights and loved it so much we came back for a week. The apartment in our eyes is perfect. Just right for a cosy getaway to relax and de-stress from the world. To name a few features, it has all the amenities that are needed, a super cozy bed and a decent sized bath to relax in. As well as relaxing we used Highview as a base to take in some of the many walks and hikes in the area. It's a short walk to the Bronte falls and Haworth as well as many other beautiful places. We love the paddock area for our dogs to have a decent run around. It's large and enclosed with no worries about the fluffy ones getting out. Katie and Dave are the perfect hosts, always friendly and even left us some treats on arrival. We highly recommend it and will certainly be booking again for as soon as we can. Thanks for a lovely stay.

  • "We knew we were going to stay on a working farm and that was part of the appeal because we have 2 dogs (who loved having their own paddock)."

    The accommodation is is comfortable and an easy place to be for humans and dogs.The views from the apartment are stunning whatever the weather and there are numerous places for lovely walks. When it was wet the big TV was welcome. Our hosts were most friendly and helpful. We hope to return.

  • "Highview definitely lives up to its name."

    The views from the windows are exceptional and are ever changing. It was lovely to watch the clouds rolling in and back out again, could have spent the whole week watching the views but would have missed out on all the great walks that start from the doorstep of Highview and all the sights that are accessible from it. The owners, who live on site are helpful and friendly but also unobtrusive. All round a brilliant week away and looking forward to staying again. Thank you Katie and David.

  • "High view is comfortable and is according to listing."

    The bed is comfortable as is the sofa. The heating works well with a fan type fire as backup. There is adequate crockery and cutlery and cooking utensils. The only gripe I had was the undercounter fridge was very small, difficult to know how this could be solved but perhaps it would be better not to have a fridge with freezer compartment, but this is will depend on individual circumstances, for instance I would have rather had bigger fridge, perhaps separate freezer and no washing machine. But on the whole a very comfortable holiday cottage with lovely views.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at High view."

    The location is excellent if you enjoy walking which we do and we never used the car during our 3 night stay. The walk from the farm up to Penistone hill is about 15 minutes and the views from up there are stunning and very safe for dogs to walk. The paddock area outside the apartment is great and our dog really enjoyed the space and freedom to play and explore. All in all we would recommend this place to outdoor types who enjoy walking and dog owners as well. The hosts are fantastic warm welcoming people and we will definitely return along with friends to use the adjoining cottages. Thanks for a great stay. Ian & Sue

  • "Very suitable property for anyone outdoorsy."

    Although it was clean and tidy, we would have felt happy to bring a dog as the owners have provided little extras that would make you feel relaxed about it. Katie came to meet us once we had got in and unloaded all our belongings and she made it clear that we were to contact her about anything that we might need help with. She was extremely friendly and welcoming and taking the Covid extra cleaning policy very seriously. She had also, kindly, left us some little treats. On the one occasion that we did need something extra, she responded really quickly. Other than that, she left us to it which was nice, so although the owners are on site, you don't feel watched. The bed was extraordinarily comfortable and warm and we slept really well. The temperature dropped while we were there but the heating comes on quite frequently and quickly warms the flat up. We made use of the little electric heater on the first cold evening but after that we found the heating was more than adequate. The kitchen had everything we needed for two and enough space to make a decent meal. All the electrical goods worked well and there is a lovely heated towel rail (which seems to come on several times a day) and some over-radiator-racks for drying washed clothes. The bathroom was fantastic - the shower was good, the bath was wonderful and there was always plenty hot water. The view from the flat is outstanding, it really is. It looks out across the moors and if you're an early riser, you will enjoy some incredible sunrises. The weather over the moors is very changeable but this means you can enjoy watching the drama from the window as the low clouds roll in - we loved this! On site, there are lots of farm animals to look at and lots of grassy footpaths to explore nearby. We did the 9 mile classic Bronte circular walk from Haworth village up to Top Withins which was thought to be the inspiration for Wuthering Heights. Haworth itself is beautiful and within 1.5 miles walking distance along well signposted tracks. We didn't visit any coffee shops or pubs (being very careful due to Covid) but the Spar and excellent wholefood shop in Haworth met most of our needs, the convenience store in Oxenhope was handy and the pharmacist was helpful when we needed him. There are some big supermarkets over towards Keighley if you have greater needs or special diets. From our base we travelled into Nidderdale and Wharfdale to enjoy some excellent walking and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would certainly recommend this place as perfect for enthusiasts of the moors and we hope to return.

  • "The views from the windows were amazing."

    The flat was very clean and the dog paddock was huge so our little dog had lots of space to run around. Far bigger then normal garden and very secure. Area for sight seeing and walking was spot on and didnt have to go far for the walking we wanted to do. The accommodation was comfortable and everything required was to hand. We would return again given the chance.

    Its so peaceful, just the sound of curlews and lapwings, and the family donkey! The day after I arrived was the start of social distancing so I didn't get to Haworth shopping. I know non essential travel is not advised but it was the best place I could imagine for being self isolated! The couple who run it are lovely, I wish we were neighbours. In most people's price range and really good value, I would love to go again.

    The paddock area for the dogs was an added bonus, they loved running free. The accommodation was cozy and the kitchen was well equipped. The views were amazing and was nice to see the stars at night and not the orange glow of street lights. Katie and Dave were very friendly and helpful, they invited us to their bonfire and made a lovely tomato soup. I would recommend Highview to others as it's such a lovely relaxing place to stay. There are walks just outside your door. You are made very welcome by the owners. Definitely be back next year

    The tourist village of Haworth is about a mile away, and Oxenhope, southern terminus of the Keighley and Hope Valley Railway, half the distance, at the foot of the valley. Great views from the premises, with a variety of animals from the small-holding adjacent for added interest. Welcoming owners Katie and David on hand next door to deal with any questions. Excellent bathroom facilities, and generally everything else you need. Wifi reasonable for a countryside location. Ideal for a walking holiday (open moorland, industrial archaeology and farmland, with half a dozen waymarked long-distance footpaths all at hand); no need for a car to get places.

About the location

HAWORTH

Skipton 13 miles; Hebden Bridge 8 miles.

The small village of Haworth was home to the famous Bronte sisters, who were inspired by the surrounding moorland to pen their novels, which have become classics of English Literature. Haworth is a village that time almost forgot, with its myriad of curiosity and antique shops, alleyways and cobbled streets creating a wonderful period atmosphere, all set against a framing backdrop of countryside famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights as wild, rugged and barren. Nearby, the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, provides a lovely day out with a regular service to the old village of Oxenhope. The area abounds with popular places to visit, including the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the National Railway Museum in York. The market town of Skipton, often fondly regarded as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
