    “The cottage is in a lovely location and is well furnished and supplied with everything for a good holiday.”

    The welcoming fruit cake was a tasty treat. It would better to have a cuppa with it, but there was no milk, although there were t-bags in the cupboard! The cottage was clean, and with an ample supply of towels and bathroom accessories. ...

    The welcoming fruit cake was a tasty treat. It would better to have a cuppa with it, but there was no milk, although there were t-bags in the cupboard! The cottage was clean, and with an ample supply of towels and bathroom accessories. The bedrooms were of adequate size, given the cuteness of the cottage. We felt the photographs of the downstairs kitchen/diner/lounge made the area look larger than it was. This doesn't mean it wasn't sufficient for 2/3 adults and a baby, but a more comfortable armchair to go with the settee/bed would have added to our comfort. The owners were very accommodating, supplying us with cot and highchair for our granddaughter, who was an addition from our original booking at the beginning of the year! The cottage location close to the steam-train railway line was exciting, and the walks into either Oxenhope or Haworth took no more than 15 minutes even with the pram. We enjoyed our visits to Saltaire and the Bingley 5-step locks on the Leeds-Liverpool canal - a must for good, long walks, as well as our ride on the Keighley-Worth Railway.

The property

A delightful, semi-detached, stone-built cottage, part of a former farmstead in an enviable location amid beautiful rolling Dales countryside in Oxenhope, on the outskirts of Haworth, home of the famous Bronte Sisters.

Set near to the owners’ home and on the side of a hillside with outstanding views, including of the wonderful steam railway, this cottage is a real delight and offers first-class holiday accommodation, ideal for a couple or small family.

This characterful cottage has been lovingly restored by the current owners, and features tasteful styling which combines well with the features of the old cottage.

The open plan living area has painted ceiling beams and comprises of a lovely, warm and snug sitting area with mullioned window looking out across the courtyard, and a well-equipped kitchen diner with pretty views across the owners’ gardens.

The first floor boasts two pretty bedrooms, a modern bathroom and a feature window on the landing, with long-distance views across to the nearby fells.

The cottage is in a wonderful setting, with views of the surrounding meadows and fells and everything close at hand, including the many sights and sounds of Haworth, which is just a ten-minute walk.

Outside to the front is a small seating area, ideal for relaxing after a day out exploring Top Withens, made famous in Wuthering Heights.

About the location


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.
