    “The location is perfect on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, scenic in itself and really near (10 mins walk, a minute in the car to the parking) a large country park (Penistone Hill), perfect for dogwalks.”

    Then ranging a bit wider, we went to Haworth Parsonage, to Ilkley Moor, to lovely waterfalls at Ingleton (a strenuous walk), to the Bronte Falls near the hut. The village had shops, pubs (one with good food) takeaway etc, as did everywhere else we visited. The Shepherds hut itself is small, cosy even in galeforce winds and rain, and fitted really well with all the facilities you could want.

    Then ranging a bit wider, we went to Haworth Parsonage, to Ilkley Moor, to lovely waterfalls at Ingleton (a strenuous walk), to the Bronte Falls near the hut. The village had shops, pubs (one with good food) takeaway etc, as did everywhere else we visited. The Shepherds hut itself is small, cosy even in galeforce winds and rain, and fitted really well with all the facilities you could want. I could have cooked a full meal easily, but was happy to have a holiday from that too, so we mostly had a main meal out, then contented ourselves with snack-type meals. It was a delight to go back to the hut after our nice days out and settle down comfortably with a book and the wifi for our laptop. There's a TV too, but we seldom watch TV anyway. Skipton looks like a lovely town too, we wished we had time to fit that in too, but as the Covid19 virus was just becoming a problem (and we are both old) we decided to stick mostly to country walks rather than busy towns. Not that we've had any symptoms, nor any known contacts, but it was an easy place to stay safe too. The farm was a delight too, with horses, sheep and the families pets. If you want a rural retreat, with the option of nearby towns to visit, this is hard to beat. We loved it

The property

This cosy shepherd’s hut is situated within the owner’s grounds, in stunning Bronte countryside near to the village of Oxenhope.

This superb setting is perfect for couples looking for something a little bit different and provides a great spot for a romantic break away.

Surrounded on three sides by lovely views, guests will be delighted to get away-from-it-all and experience a refreshing atmosphere.

Three steps lead up to the hut and into a small porch area, where you can hang up your coats and kick off your boots.

The open-plan living area has a compact but functional kitchen where you can rustle up delicious meals to be enjoyed out on the lovely patio.

The main bed sits at the end of the room with a window looking out across the attached paddock, where horses can be seen grazing the day away.

After a long hard walk, cosy up together and feel the warmth from the woodburning stove or sit out on the patio, light the chiminea and take in the beautiful surroundings.

With everything you need, including a modern shower room, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

If you can tear yourselves away, there are lovely public footpaths in and around the village, with some of the most popular walks situated around the reservoirs and the Bronte Falls.

Walk along Bronte Way visiting the Bronte Bridge, leading out onto the bleak moors where you will find Top Withins.

Skipton is nearby, with its delightful castle and further afield is the Victorian spa town of Harrogate, boasting fabulous shops, and an excellent theatre.

Simply perfect for that romantic break with a difference!

About the location

OXENHOPE

Haworth 2 miles; Hebden Bridge 6 miles; Skipton 14 miles.

The small village of Oxenhope lies amid wonderful scenery, and offers the chance to take advantage of the multitude of walks in the area. The village, with its shops, churches and pubs, is home to the terminus for the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, which runs on a regular basis to Haworth and on down to Keighley. The area was made famous by the Bronte sisters, and the outstanding countryside was famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights as wild, rugged and barren. The area abounds with popular places to visit; the cobbled streets of Haworth, the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the Museum of Rail. The market town of Skipton, known as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate and vibrant Leeds.
