    “e were very impressed with our ...”
    e were very impressed with our holiday let. Michael and Tracy looked after us well and were happy to answer any queries. An ideal location and wonderful surroundings. Would fully recommend it to others. Essentially, anyone staying there needs their own transport, or be prepared to walk significant distances. Good walking shoes are absolutely necessary for those who choose to brave the moors, the Bronte Waterfall and Top Withens.

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.
