“Cosy refuge from bleak moors, Pennine Way nearby”
Stayed here for nearly two weeks in November for a house-hunting trip. The flat was clean and cosy, and we looked forward to getting back to it in the evenings in the dark, with the rain teeming down and a gale howling away. The service from the site manager was really good - when the washing machine didn't work, they sent around an engineer first thing the next morning to fix it. We certainly enjoyed staying and would do so again. There are a few improvements the owners could make. It would be ...
Stayed here for nearly two weeks in November for a house-hunting trip. The flat was clean and cosy, and we looked forward to getting back to it in the evenings in the dark, with the rain teeming down and a gale howling away. The service from the site manager was really good - when the washing machine didn't work, they sent around an engineer first thing the next morning to fix it. We certainly enjoyed staying and would do so again. There are a few improvements the owners could make. It would be useful if they provided a tumble dryer, or at least a couple of clothes horses. The other bugbear was the variable, and often frustratingly poor, wifi and mobile telephone reception.

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.
