  • "A superb little cottage."

    So warm, welcoming and restful. Nothing was lacking. Pleasent outdoor seating area. Intrigued by the back to back houses.

  • "This is a lovely little cottage."

    It is set off the road and sits within a row of similar properties. There are a table and chairs out front. This is a peaceful setting. Thornton is a nice little village with a sprinkling of pubs, a co-op, and a short walk to some very scenic walks, such as the local viaduct. Thoroughly recommended for a short break.

  • "Was rather disappointed to find that when we stripped the beds on the last day, to find very visable urine stains on the mattress cover!"

    Would also have liked a hair dryer and a clothes dryer in the cottage. Other than this, we were delighted with our stay in Mischa Cottage.

    Can I just assure you that it wasn’t urine stains, unless it was yours? We have bed bug protectors under the mattress protectors, that are a bit plasticy, if you put a damp towel on the bed it causes staining. We change the top mattress cover every time. I hope this put your mind at ease. Like you wrote in the guest book how spotless the cottage was, why would we leave urine marks on the mattress protector!! Property Owner

    Tucked away in a quiet little spot, but so close to local amenities and the wider attractions of West Yorkshire. Friendly and helpful hosts and the welcome pack a lovely unexpected touch.

  • "A beautiful cottage and lovely immediate location."

    It was like being in a little slice of heaven. We probably wouldnt stay again because its not really suitable for dogs as it has a shared garden. The locals are very friendly and there was everything in the cottage that you needed.

  • "Such a lovely and peaceful location."

    So close to the local facilities and with secluded shared garden the ideal place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The neighbours are so friendly and welcoming, and that helped make the stay special (we all had a powercut for a short while late evening and one lady came and knocked on the door with tea-lights for us - it's that sort of place).

  • "The property was as listed and was nice and clean on arrival with a lovely welcome pack."

    The living area was nice and comfortable and the kitchen area was practical with everything we needed. The bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent and the beds were comfortable. On arrival the cottage was a little difficult to locate but being a former boy scout I managed ok although there was contact details available. Overall a great three day break and would recommend.

  • "Lovely cottage which was very well equipped with everything we needed."

    Lovely welcome pack which is as appreciated and enjoyed . The property is quite a challenge to find , but once we got there we were very pleased with our booking. Slight problem with the fridge which seemed to freeze what we put in there but this was a minor issue and we were very pleased with the cottage. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again

  • "The cottage was poorly lighted, a number of the lamps did not work and there was a low chandelier directly over the main sitting area which needed to be avoided."

    There were no spare bulbs or batteries at the property. The in-built cooker was obviously quite old, so much so that the markings indicating the temperature settings and oven settings were no longer readable, so made it very difficult to use the oven properly. A number of the baking sheets were dirty and could not have been checked before we arrived. The shower constantly dripped 24/7 and sounded very loud at night making it difficult to ignore when trying to sleep. The mattress cover on the double bed sported a large stain, which was there prior to our stay and should have been replaced before we arrived. The walls seemed paper thin and we could hear a lot of noises from the neighbouring properties. It would have been helpful if there was information at the cottage about recycling, it was difficult to know what is recycled locally.

  • "We would certainly book this cottage again, it was very clean, comfortable and quiet and the owners welcome goodies were much appreciated The neighbours either side were very friendly and nearby is the Great Northern Railway trail for cycling and dog walking."

    The only hiccup we thought the write up suggested there was a designated parking space, whereas we just parked in the cul de sac behind the cottage. This wasn't a problem at all but at first we were trying to find the space for that particular cottage.

  • "A very cosy cottage with super comfy beds and a fabulous shower."

    There is a good circular walk from the doorstep to take in the local history and the countryside. In our week we easily travelled to Leeds, Skipton, Ilkley, Halifax, Hebden Bridge and Blackpool. Our hosts were right there to help when we had a small problem. A very good quality cottage.

The property

Resting in a quiet part of Thornton is this mid-terrace cottage, Mischa Cottage.

In a no-through lane, this hidden terrace of weavers cottages make for a charming and peaceful setting for your next getaway to West Yorkshire, within easy reach of Bradford and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

As you walk from the off-road parking spot to the front of the property, there is a well-kept lawn, shared with friendly neighbours, with a table and chairs just for the guests of Mischa Cottage to enjoy their morning coffee in the fresh air.

There is also a private gravelled area to the front with a shed which makes for great bike storage for those budding cyclists waiting to explore the area.

Stepping into the property, there is an open-plan living space where a leather chesterfield sofa immediately catches your eye, sat in front of the Smart television and the warming electric fire.

Carry on through to the kitchen area where you can prepare a picnic or enjoy breakfast at the bar, or alternatively take your breakfast to the window seat as you watch the world go by.

Climbing upstairs, there is an angelic white furnished king-size bedroom with wooden flooring and a dressing table so you can get ready for an evening out or draw the curtains so you can rest and rejuvenate for the next day.

Also upstairs is a stylish single room so guests can have their own space to escape to at the end of the day and there is storage so you can unpack any personal belongings, there is also a contemporary shower room with a marble feature wall, a large shower and great lighting.

Just a stone's throw away from the property there are shops, bars, pubs, takeaways, and the Grade II listed viaduct, also nearby there is a golf course and Ogden Water Country Park, which is a scenic nature reserve with a fantastic lake.

Within a short drive you can discover the pretty village of Haworth, where the family home of the Bronte sisters now remains as the Brontë Parsonage Museum, and the local Keighley & Worth Valley Railway offers train rides on vintage steam locomotives and a museum, or take a walk to the Ponden Kirk's Fairy Cave, passing both the Bronte Memorial and the stunning Bronte Waterfall.

Also nearby is the large minster town of Halifax which is thriving with history from the choice of museums, the 18th century cloth hall filled with shops and cafes, to the views from Beacon Hill and the timber-framed Shibden Hall with gardens, a mini-railway and a boating lake.

If you can tear yourself away, spend a day in the cities of Bradford or Leeds which are bustling with things to do and gorgeous architecture to marvel at, or alternatively head to the Yorkshire Dales to embrace the views as you walk or cycle around one of the many exciting trails in the area.

Misha Cottage is a heart-warming setting for your next sweet trip to the historic part of West Yorkshire.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
