  • "We had a lovely time at Quarry Bank."

    The views were wonderful and the house had plenty of room for us 4 adults. The hot tub was a real indulgence after a long day walking and exploring the area. Karen was really helpful and responsive to anything we needed. We will be back again.

  • "Good afternoon and thank you for another lovely week away!"

    As per conversation with one of your team on the last day, it would be so beneficial if both garden gates were adapted so little furry legs cannot get through the bars. Perhaps chicken wire? We were using the benches from the outside table all week which is not ideal however they would have just escaped without us doing so. We have booked again for next year. If this is something you can organise it would make our stay (and presume others with smaller dogs) more adapting. Just fyi, the egg cups were all chipped in the cupboard. Not a big issue for us. Just wanted you to know to replace. Also the knifes are very blunt and could do with sharpening or replacing. Thanks again for a lovely stay and also thank you for allowing us to have all our dogs with us. Absolutely perfect :) Regards Mr & Mrs Welch x

  • "A beautiful cottage in an amazing area."

    Very well equipped. The hot tub is a must to take in the views. The farm shop in Denholm is a must and of course the steam train and station in Oxenhope. Very relaxing and great for dogs to have a wander as the grounds are fenced of. Just cannot big up this cottage enough. This is our 4th visit and we just love it.

    Thank you :) Property Owner

  • "Check in and out smooth and easy."

    Double bed/mattress needs replacing as per previous reviews. Sofa tired and sagging. left hand cooker not working, knobs on cooker fly off when you try to use them. Gas safe certificate seems to be out of date, so a bit of a concern. Hot tub detergent block was dropped on patio, luckily i found it before the dogs did. Could do with new towels and bedding. Garage does not belong to the house so beware people turning up to use it! House clean and tidy, lovely views, shower pressure and hot water very good.

    Thank you for your feed back. The mattresses have since been replaced along with the sofa. New bedding and towels are replaced at the start of every new season and are rotated with two different lots. For ref: The gas certificate as per sykes website has never been out of date and is currently up to date. Property Owner

  • "We have stayed in many cottages over the years but this is the most poorly equipped cottage we have stayed in."

    How do you expect the guests to keep the cottage clean when you do not leave any basic cleaning goods. No Washing up liquid/Dishwasher Tabs or disinfectant for the worktops. Only 2 small Toilet rolls for two bathrooms. Not enough cutlery and a broken Dishwasher that leaks and a gas cooker that falls to pieces when you use it and pans that don’t fit in the oven to name but a few. A log burner that doesn’t work and hasn’t done for some ( we were told about this a few days before). No Blankets for cold evenings. The mattress in the master bedroom is so old and in poor condition and sags in the middle. We have a private garden however a man walks through a gate into your garden in the morning without any warning! ( Very poor when your wife is in her nightwear.) I could accept some of this if it was a cheap cottage.

    Well, not a great review but most things put right since. A lot of what you mention was already on back order but delayed due to covid. For clarification the man walking through the garden once daily has to service the hot tub. It's a little difficult to announce this visit as the garden comes before the front door....... Thanks again for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "We came as a group of 4 ladies, to celebrate our friend's 50th birthday and we had an amazing weekend break."

    One of the ladies had visited a few times before, so we knew it came highly recommended. Views were stunning and the house is in a great location to take these in. Not that we were used to the gradients of the roads when we walked into Haworth, coming from a very flat Suffolk! Hottub was amazing to sit and relax in too and it was checked every day by the groundsman. Water is changed prior to next visitors going in, as we witnessed this prior to leaving. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need in terms of equipment /crockery, although a few more teaspoons would be helpful. The only suggestions we would make, is to have a few more of the essential cleaning items in place. There were some washing pods and a couple of dishwasher tablets and we did take some with us but it would be nice to not have to think about taking those kind of things with you. There was some very nice smelling handwash in the bathrooms though. The towels were adequate but I would suggest some larger and softer feeling ones. As I said these are suggestions and in no way did they impair the enjoyment of our time visiting this beautiful house. We would highly recommend going and I'm certain we'll be back in the future.

    The hot tub is excellent and very privately located at the side of the cottage. The wood fire was a treat to come home to after a long walk. The only drawback for me personally was the memory foam mattress on the double bed which was not for me ,but the single bed was very comfortable ..All in all we had an excellent time and would highly recommend the cottage..

  • "The house was in a really nice area and the online pictures did not do it justice."

    Its nice being able to have a walk straight from the house on too the moors. The hot tubs was a great bonus too. Very quite and peace no noise from the campsite. The house had all the right facilities to be able to make a small meal in plus there are lots of local pubs only a short drive away. Being near the runway was nice as the 11yr old could see the aeroplanes take off and land, runway was only used part time so noise level were good.

  • "The house was amazing."

    Upon arrival of collection of keys we were told they had put milk in the fridge, a loaf of bread in the freezer. That there was tea and coffee satchets, as well as a box of shortbread for us and a pack of dog treats! There was also a pack of logs for the fire! What a great start to the holiday! We had sun, rain, wind and snow whilst on holiday, but having the hot tub really makes the house worth it in all weathers. We used the massage place (literally next door) 3 times, so convenient and such a treat! A short walk to the caravan park takes you to the clubhouse, with shop, bar and restaurant (due to covid take away only). There is also a park on site for kids. Just past the park and your straight onto the Moors, an amazing place for walking the dog. Local villages are a shirt drive and great too!

    It was spotlessly clean the hot tub had been drained cleaned and refilled which was great to know because that was where we spent alot of time.The garden was secure enough to let our dog roam about doing his thing and there are great walks over the moors behind the cottage.The views at front are fabulous and there is plenty of car parking space.The cottage itself has a large well equipped kitchen is comfortable and homely.The only reason it didn't get top marks for facilities is because the upstairs shower had a leak that took a few days before anyone came,guess that can happen in any house i know and covid 19 probably didn't help either.

    All crockery and cutlery was dirty and needed cleaning, the knife set needs replacing! Hot tub is a health hazard, left with bruising across my nose from the handle. Blood on the duvet (found after we stripped the beds as that’s what the rule book states!) dogs not to be exercised in the garden in this dog friendly property! Beam above the window hanging out of the wall, broken glass lampshade at head height, mould on ceiling in bedroom, paint flaking off, bbq rusty, baking trays don’t fit in the oven and were disgusting and Sykes aren’t interested at all. Won’t be booking with them again!

    great cottage. lovely staff. hot tub thoroughly enjoyed. lovely walks for my husband and spaniel Bella. The cottage is very well equipped. we did loose hot water and central heating for a day. but was quickly fixed. The only downsides were, some deep cleaning is needed, dining chairs a dirty and carpet edges need a good hoover. felt rushed on the last morning as the Plummer came to investigate the boiler, we have a very nervy dog which had to be caged whilst we got ready. also they came to empty the hot tub which does take a while, he then started cleaning it which was reassuring but felt rushed as it was well before our check out time.

    Hot tub was fantastic to sit out in even in the snow. Very friendly helpful managers. Very spacious rooms. Log burner was a very welcome addition. Extra log supplies were no problem with the owners. Fresh flowers, box of biscuits along with milk, and coffee & sugar upon arrival were a nice welcoming touch. The only downside were that the beds seemed a little low and it would of been perfect if the twin beds could have been put together as a double. Overall though a fantastic cottage and would not hesitate to book cottage again if going back to the area.

The property

Oxenhope 2 miles.

This delightful, stone-built detached cottage sits in an elevated position, just two miles from both Oxenhope and Haworth.

Situated in a quiet location within its own spacious grounds, on the edge of Upwood Park, the cottage boasts outstanding views across the valley to the distant fells.

Complete with private hot tub, in the very heart of Bronte Country, this is a superb place to relax and unwind and enjoy this famous old area.

Featuring a lovely sitting room with cosy woodburning stove, picture windows to enhance the views, a separate dining room, which will seat eight in comfort, and a well-equipped kitchen with all the usual appliances, this is a fantastic base.

Upstairs there are two spacious bedrooms, both enjoying good views across the valley and a useful bunk room, ideal for the children, as well as a large modern shower room.

There is also a second smaller shower room on the ground floor.

Everyone will love the hot tub, a perfect place to unwind and gaze at the wonderful rural views reaching for miles.

The village is only a couple of miles away with a host of good pubs, and there are challenging walks from the doorstep into wild and rugged Dales’ countryside.

Upwood Park offers a vibrant clubhouse for guests with a soft play area and combined games room, excellent bar with real ales and nightly weekend entertainment during the season.

Nearby Haworth is steeped in literary history and was formerly home to the Bronte sisters.

Haworth has much to offer, including a variety of walks, which allow visitors to follow in the footsteps of Cathy and Heathcliff by wandering the fantastic rugged moorland.

The market town of Hebden Bridge is nearby, and within reach is Skipton with its cobbled streets and delightful castle, whilst further afield is the Victorian spa town of Harrogate, boasting fabulous shops, an excellent theatre and the Royal Pump Room Museum.

You can also make a trip to the famous Malham Cove.

This is a wonderful holiday cottage, perfect for that much promised visit to the Yorkshire Dales.

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.
