The property

Resting in the delightful village of Oakworth is this semi-detached stone cottage, lying next door to the owner's home, Hill Top Cottage is a traditional farm dwelling boasting character and charm.

This West Yorkshire cottage has three bedrooms and is perfectly placed for exploring Haworth, Hebden Bridge and Skipton.

Park within the gated entrance, head past the excellent front patio and make your way into the property; to your left is the homely sitting room, where a gas fire sits within the stone fireplace to warm you on a cool evening, relax on one of the sofas or armchair and watch a film on the TV to wind down after another exciting day.

Admire the exposed stonework and timber beams in the ceiling before discovering the dining room, gather at the table for family meals or use this space to relax on the soft seating away from the TV for a quiet moment.

Completing the ground floor is the large kitchen where you can find all you need to make your favourite dishes, including a large American-style fridge/freezer, electric oven and hob and washing machine, as well as a quaint corner with coat hooks and a bench.

Head upstairs to find the master bedroom, home to a double bed and featuring a stunning en-suite shower room with a large shower enclosure, along with the shared shower room and two more bedrooms, a double and a twin, all complete with pretty decor and plenty of storage space, with some countryside views of the valley.

Enjoy time outside on the patio, with furniture for relaxing on or dining alfresco in the summer months.

The charming village of Oakworth is just a stone's throw from the historic village of Haworth, famous for being the home of the Brontë sisters, you can visit the Brontë Parsonage Museum set up in their old home, it now contains personal items and original manuscripts belonging to the women on display.

Take a walk from the village down to the Brontë Waterfall within the heart of Brontë Country and take in the wonderful scenery that inspired the famous novels, as well as venturing to Top Withins, an old farmhouse said to be what inspired Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights.

Also in Haworth is the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway where you can be taken back in time in a vintage carriage carried by a steam train through stunning countryside, or head to Haworth Central Park for a picnic in the elegant and well-kept grounds.

Enjoy a wonderful day out at East Riddlesden Hall run by the National Trust, this restored 17th century manor house is complete with period furnishings and formal gardens as well as being home to a tea room, making it a lovely outing.

For some exciting adventures, visit Doe Park Water Activities Centre to have a go at sailing, canoeing, kayaking and raft building, as well as archery too for those who prefer dry land!

The surrounding area has lots to offer too, with Ilkley Moor presenting a wonderful challenge for walkers, Thornton Hall Country Park presenting another lovely day of exploring, Skipton being home to Skipton Castle and the bohemian streets of Hebden Bridge offering a fantastic arts scene.

Enjoy a wonderful stay at Hill Top Cottage in West Yorkshire with your loved ones.

  • “This is a lovely cottage which has been carefully renovated by the friendly owners.”

    It is very well-equipped and in a peaceful setting. There are walks from the door and plenty to do in and around the local area. Oakworth is home to the Railway Children and with the new film due out in 2022 I anticipate this cottage will become a firm favourite with families.

About the location


Haworth 2 miles; Skipton 10 miles.

Oakworth is a small Pennine village just two miles from Haworth, overlooking the Worth Valley, made famous by the filming of the classic 1970 film version of E.E. Nesbitt's novel, The Railway Children. Besides its close proximity to Haworth and the moors, Oakworth has an attractive ornamental park, and is within easy reach of the town of Keighley. Nearby Haworth was home to the famous Bronte sisters, who were much-inspired by the surrounding moorland. Haworth has a myriad of curiosity and antique shops, alleyways and cobbled streets creating a wonderful period atmosphere, and all this against a backdrop of countryside famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights. Nearby, the famous Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, makes a lovely day out, with a regular service to the old village of Oxenhope. The area is full of popular places to visit, including the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the Museum of Rail. The market town of Skipton, Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate, and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
