    The owners couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating and gave us great advice on places to visit and eat. the surrounding countryside is beautiful. we enjoyed visiting nearby Howarth [2 miles], Hebden Bridge [8 miles], Skipton, Bolton Abbey, Ilkley and Otley [all within about 15 miles]. We also enjoyed some great walks around the nearby reservoir and Bronte Water Falls. The house was beautifully presented and exceeded our expectations.

  • "We were greeted by a lovely welcome pack of foods plus the owners had ensured a parking space outside the cottage to make it easier for us to unload."

    Tracy and Michael have been great hosts - welcoming us but allowing us the privacy to make this our own mini holiday. The cottage is well set up with everything you need for practicalities combined with the most amazing views. Would recommend this cottage readily for any couple wanting to get away from it all. Lots of walking, fresh airs, views, villages and small towns to visit.

    Dorothy a huge thank you for your comments! Hope to see you again for more walking in our beautiful countryside Property Owner

    Exceeded our expectations, from the warm welcome to extremely well appointed cottage. Extra comfy bed, and thoughtful extras. Day after day of walking from the door, spectacular scenery and the odd trip to one of the pubs that are just a walk away. Already planning when we can return.

    Everything we needed was provided and the Cottage was very clean and tidy and fully stocked with household needs even down to toilet rolls ! No noise and Car Parking at the door ! Beautiful scenic views from the lounge and bedroom windows with the Jacob sheep never far away ( no noise ! ). Very convenient for our trips to Hebden Bridge, Haworth, Skipton and Harrogate and the SatNav never got lost once. Oxenhope Station is the first on the old Steam railway trip to Keighley. We new what we wanted before we left home and this little cottage supplied it all.

  • "What a fantastic holiday cottage!"

    Everything you could ask for and the views were incredible, the pictures do not do it justice. The whole booking process was quick and easy, and the owner Tracey was lovely, going the extra mile to make sure we had all the information about the cottage / directions before our stay. We will definately be visiting the cottage again and would recommend to family + friends.

  • "17 Moorside is a lovely cosy cottage which is very well equipped - a definite home from home."

    The owners were so warm and friendly, and provided some really thoughtful extra touches. Plus the bed was the comfiest I've ever slept in! The views from the cottage were breathtaking and it was so relaxing and peaceful sitting outside watching the birds and wildlife - plus of course the sheep in the neighbouring field which really made us laugh at times! The cottage is in a great position for sight seeing and Hebden Bridge, Ilkley Moor and Malham Cove are a must! All in all we had a lovely stay and can’t wait to go back and explore more of this stunning part of the country.

About the location


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.
