    You could quite easily drive past the vicinity, not realising the holiday cottage is there, set amid a line of similar terraced cottages. (But don't be put off, as you will receive directions before you embark on the journey).Step inside Leeshaw, however, and you cannot fail to experience the vista: the surroundings will never tire you. No matter what the weather has on offer, the view is quite stunning and breath taking. Leeshaw Cottage overlooks a once glaciated valley, dating back to the Great Ice Age, with its numerous tributary valleys interlinking. The cottage itself, despite its geographical isolation high up in the Pennines, is a very comfortable and well-equipped place. The couple who own the cottage live there for much of the year, but rent it out to holiday- makers. Everything has been well thought out in terms of domestic convenience (Kitchenware, bedding, etc). Car parking is not a problem, but where possible, come with decent walking boots to really appreciate the potential. The village of Oxenhope is just over a mile from Leeshaw, with a few simple, convenience stores and its very interesting steam railway. In a different direction and a little further to walk is Howarth, which is a fascinating little place - being the focus of Bronte Country. Out and beyond is Howarth Moor. And whatever you do, don't venture in ordinary shoes as I foolishly did! Go prepared for all eventuality. Top Withens, which marks the spot on which Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights" is based, is something of a pilgrimage for many of us! I can promise you a great holiday.

The property

This charming and characterful terraced cottage is set on high ground with stunning panoramic views of the hills and valleys of the Bronte countryside, just half a mile from the pretty village of Oxenhope.

Built in 1830 as a mill worker's cottage, it retains many of its original features and has been lovingly refurbished to provide a comfortable base to explore the attractions of the Yorkshire countryside.

Ideal for a small family.

With their additional property, two small families could book a break.

Benefiting from a south-facing position, Leeshaw Cottage has stunning far-reaching views from the sitting room and master double bedroom.

Upstairs there is also a single bedroom and a luxurious split-level bathroom.

On winter evenings you can snuggle up on the comfy sofas in front of the multi-fuel stove and plan the next day's activities.

Alternatively, on a sunny day, why not sit outside and enjoy a drink whilst taking in the views or watching the sheep and lambs in the field right outside the front door?

For walkers and cyclists the area has a wonderful network of paths and tracks, including the Pennine Way.

The cottage is set on the Tour de Yorkshire route for those budding cyclists in the party.

Steeped in literary history and home to the Bronte sisters, Haworth has much to offer, including many events and festivals throughout the year.

Just over the hill, guests can enjoy the many delights of Hebden Bridge, which include antique and craft shops, lively nightlife and also the old cinema where tea and scones are served during the screenings.

Skipton is just a short drive away and a little further afield, the Victorian spa town of Harrogate boasts elegant buildings, a variety of shops, an excellent theatre and the Royal Pump Room Museum.

This is an ideal cottage to get away from it all, within a short distance of the many attractions in this beautiful part of Yorkshire. This cottage can be booked in conjunction with property reference 955197.

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.
