  • "Fantastic cottage with plenty of character and charm."

    Lovely and cool to return to after a hot weather day! The lack of garden wasn’t an issue for us as the beer garden at the Wuthering Heights Inn next door has stunning views and is dog friendly. Andrea, the cottage owner, was there to greet us on arrival and was very helpful. The cottage was clean and well equipped, with a bountiful supply of provisions (cake, milk, eggs, butter, jam, tea, coffee, treats for the dog and more). Great walks from the door, lots of places of interest in the local area too. Would highly recommend.

  • "The cottage was well decorated and furnished."

    Comfy beds, well equipped and little extras like tea, coffee, milk, eggs, cake were unexpected. Parking outside the property initially seemed to be a problem because the road is narrow but after we unloaded we moved the car slightly down the road ( a few hundred yards) and it was perfectly safe. The pub next door does lovely meals as does the Old Silent Inn just down the road. It was an ideal base for walking and exploring the area and we will definitely book again.

    It’s cosy and the beds are very comfortable. Kitchen and bathroom are modern and well equipped. Everything you need is provided, with the added bonus of a generous welcome pack, which included items such as milk, bread, eggs, biscuits etc. and a vase of lovely daffodils. Treats for our dog too! Lots of walks from the cottage onto the moors and into Haworth. Andrea was super helpful with any enquiries. Would love to go back and stay again.

  • "We had a brilliant stay at no."

    24 in March. We have stayed in a number of holiday let’s in the UK and this was by far one of the best. The reclining setttee and chair certainly helped relaxing after our walks. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was modern with toiletries provided. The kitchen had also been modernised and had everything you could wish for. This included the best welcome ‘pack’ we’ve had; Bread,milk,biscuits,cake,eggs and more. We were,as in the description, able to do a number of walks from our doorstep which almost immediately took us into the beautiful countryside. We would certainly go again!

    We had a magical time at the cottage. On arrival there was a Christmas tree set up, stockings and local gifts, such as eggs and mince pies - they were even treats for our dog! The cottage was warm and cosy throughout the whole trip, was clean with such attention to detail. The owner was on hand the whole time and really attentive. We enjoyed some stunning walks, even making our way to Top Withens in the snow on Boxing Day! Haworth was as magical as ever - a trip to the Main Street on Christmas Eve was delightful. The most fabulous cottage in the most beautiful location. It really was a perfect stay, thank you!

    The cottage was very well equipped and thoughtfully decorated in keeping with the age of the property. The welcome pack of tea, coffee, sugar, eggs, milk, bread, butter, cake and biscuits, was very thoughtful too! The owner was easy to contact in the run up to the holiday and had thoughtfully provided gloves and hand sanitiser too. There aren’t any shops in the village, but Haworth is a very short drive away, or a walk of about a mile and a half. The pub right next door was great, a proper country pub, serving good honest food. Please remember to book a table though! Some stunning walks right from the front door. Our dog loved the holiday...especially the dog treats provided!

  • "We had a brilliant time relaxed, laughed, walked around the Bronte Attractions, brilliant for people who love walking."

    Locals were very friendly, next door was the Wuthering Heights Pub where the owners were very accommodating and gave great information on the local area. Same with The friendly also a pub, I met a few locals who gave me some history on more attractions, an ex teacher named John also gave me info on the Bronte Sister's. We also visited Howarth for shopping purposes, the Main Street is a must to visit. Only downside was with coronavirus was difficult to find anywhere open after 10pm and having teens they are always hungry. I would recommend finding out before your trip, what is open. If I didn't suffer with joint issues I would have gone further on the walk I wasn't that far from the waterfall. Bring climbing sticks if you do have issues would be so much more easier. I left my teens to enjoy the rest carefully they enjoyed themselves xx Cottage was very cosy and we loved the recliners. To relax in also the fire

The multi fuel burner sitting in an inglenook fireplace being a fabulous feature in the lounge. Perhaps a negative would be that it sits on a busy road and can sometimes be quite noisy at times. However this didn't particularly bother us because a big positive for us was that there was a regular hourly public bus service, with a bus stop just up the road which took us into Howarth or Keighley to get connecting services to other parts of the area, without having to use the car which we found to be a great asset. Fantastic walks right from the front door and beautiful moorland views from the lounge and bedroom windows. Everyone in this lovely quiet village which we met were extremely friendly and welcoming and Andrea our host really just couldn't do or supply enough for us to make our stay special.
