  • "On the whole a very good holiday."

    The rooms were fairly spacious and very clean: all the equipment and utensils we needed were provided. The setting is delightful: we enjoyed the sight of the fauns, geese and other wildlife roaming through the back garden! There are many interesting places to visit in the area (e.g. Haworth, Hebden Bridge, Keighley, and not too far from Leeds, Bradford, Ilkley and Otley). One minor incident was when the toilet seat broke: we have recommended a handrail which would be especially useful for those who have disabilities. The seat was very speedily fixed. for which we are grateful. A very worthwhile, restful stay.

  • "Lovely cottage,so peaceful and quiet."

    Enjoyed seeing (and feeding the deer apples) the geese , pheasants,squirrels other birds. Great area for walking,we walked via Damens all the way to Oxenhope and did several walks from the country park by Haworth. You can see and here the Keighley Worth Valley steam Railway from the garden,this makes a lovely trip for exploring the different stations and their museums. Only slight negative was lack of internet signal which also affected phone signal at times. Also as stated in description only a tv and no DVD player so we took our portable one. Would definitely recommend Emily,and would love to go back just for the peace and quiet.

  • "Comfortable cottage with smart well equipped kitchen."

    Comfortable corner suite in the living room but if you have any mobility issues you might have problems getting on and off it. I would say a car is essential. The only negative is the lack of WiFi This is mentioned in the description however mobile signal very weak and intermittent so no mobile data. We enjoyed our stay especially the visits from the deer.

  • "This holiday is ideally located for all the places we love to visit."

    Only downside was the shower which was to hot to use. I did report it to the owner before I left but seems to be an ongoing issue looking at the previous holiday occupancy.

    Cottage is in a lovely valley and the site is peacefull and tidy,. ducks, geese, magpies ,squirrel and best of all a herd of fallow deer come to the back door and some feed from your hand ,.squirrel cmes to door step looking through patio door glass,its amazing place if you like the animals, we do and its one of the main reasons we returned. .[THIS IS NOT A COMPLAINT BUT IT NEEDS SORTING], we had rain from the second day, and on our first morning we had water problems ,I couldn't get to my car in normal footwear,water collects around the end of the cottage, I called maintainence and he came straight away and cleared most of it.BUTthe guttering overflows ,and theres a heavy dripping sound all the time it rains, and it raine for the last 3 days. cottage needs high capacity guttering and the drains sorting so water doesnt collect around the front door.,. I hope they sort it because we love it ,and will return, but I will need to call the site in advance to check if those problems have been sorted out. thanks john and Margaret Hartlepool

  • "Holiday cottage was lovely on the whole."

    The site was very pretty, but little things in the cottage let it down like the saucepans that looked extremely worn, no frying pan or oven gloves, washing up bowel or small glass bowels for the microwave. Little things like that make it less than perfect. An up to date patio set would have been nice as the chairs outside were very old and there was no table, plus a doormat by the patio door would be a good idea. The parking area needed tidying up and the broken pot with a dead plant in needed removing. A previous guest had mentioned this in the Visitors Book only a few weeks before but obviously no action was taken. We had one very wet day and the guttering wasn't joined properly in places so rain water was pouring out on several sides of the property. Maybe this property should be relisted with less stars or brought up to the level advertised.

  • "We had a very relaxing Easter break while we escaped London's rushed life style."

    The Emily cottage is situated in the Brontë Caravan park. Don't be surprised if you bump into a herd of fallow deers or a flock of geese with their youngsters on the way to your holiday home. The cottage is very clean, warm and quiet with fully equipped kitchen if you feel like cooking a roast dinner after a long hike alongside the Pennine way or Brontë way. Just stone throw away is West Ingrow rail station from where you can catch a ride on a heritage railway steam train through the valley between Keighley and Haworth. If you like country walks, fresh air, peace and quiet with a comfort of a home you can return to in the end of the day I would definitely recommend Emily cottage.

  • "Lovely place and surrounds."

    Satnavs take you to the wrong road, so only use them to get to the town. Great walks. Shops and steam rail nearby. You need a car but we saw lots of buses if you want go and walk back. The kitchen needs a draining rack. The beds are two singles not double. The place is very comfy and clean, and lots of Fallow Deer and Grouse around. Would go back very enthusiastic for another great week.

Bronte Cottages

A group of two semi-detached cottages set on the owners’ Bronte Caravan Park. These lovely cottages have been renovated to a very high standard and provide an ideal retreat for a couple to get away from it all and enjoy this historic corner of the Yorkshire Dales. The park lies in the Worth Valley alternatively known as the Bronte Country and forms part of the attractive Yorkshire Pennines. The park is less than two miles from the quaint village of Haworth, the former home of the famed Bronte sisters, and boasting excellent restaurants, cafes and good old fashioned, traditional pubs. Both cottages are located over the ground floor and the accommodation is modern and stylish with a bright and cheery feel throughout. The cosy sitting areas feature a large leather corner suite, a modern flat screen TV and patio doors with access to the private rear gardens. The kitchen diner in both properties is spacious and modern with a good range of units and equipment levels providing an excellent space for self-catering. The bedroom is bright and cheery in both properties and the adjoining bathroom is a modern bathroom suite. The park, nestling in its own hidden valley, offers total peace and tranquillity, romanticised with its own Fallow deer park, with the deer sometimes visiting guests in the gardens, two acre lake and the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway running close to the park's boundary, on the opposite side of the river providing the spectacular and nostalgic sight of steam trains. The park is easily accessible from the motorways and ideally situated as a base to enjoy Howarth and its lovely moorland walks. Skipton, gateway to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, is less than 10 miles away, and the Lake District another 30 minutes’ drive beyond. Equally close are the cities of Leeds and Bradford, not to mention a pub lunch on offer at Emmerdale's Woolpack Inn.

About the location

HAWORTH

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.
