The property

Set in a remote location, in the village in Ingrow, close to Keighley market town, in West Yorkshire, is this large three-storey, Victorian cottage, Whinswood Cottage.

Be welcomed into a small porch where you can hang your coats and leave your boots before stepping into this contemporary dwelling.

Look forward to unwinding in the open-plan living space which features an electric fire in a lovely inglenook fireplace and a large sofa and armchair seated around with a wall-mounted TV for all your entertainment needs.

This room also benefits from a dining table where you can gather for an evening meal or a hearty breakfast whilst you plan events for the days ahead.

Walk through to the kitchen which comes fitted to a high standard with all the necessary appliances for some home-cooking.

Venture up to the first floor where you will find a lovely double bedroom with a range of furniture for storing your personal belongings.

The property is child-friendly due to the single bedroom on the first floor, whilst the second floor provides a private space for the adults of the group to enjoy the super king-size bedroom with a freestanding bath for that splash of luxury.

A lawned garden and patio area can be accessed via the first floor and is perfect for the summer months to dine alfresco or enjoy a refreshing beverage.

While you're in the area, take a drive into the town centre of Keighley where you will find a selection of pubs, restaurants, cafés and tea rooms for those evenings you don't fancy cooking yourself; you're sure to find something to suit your tastes.

The market town of Keighley is an excellent location for its close proximity to a number of attractions such as Cliffe Castle Museum and Park holding a variety of local history and heritage.

Venture towards the National Trust property East Riddlesden Hall which dates back to the 17th century and is set in stunning landscaped gardens, housing a fine collection of embroidery, Yorkshire oak furniture, textiles and an amazing collection of fossils, minerals and crystals.

Take a visit to Keighley and Worth Valley Steam Railway which is noted for it's nostalgic steam train ride and for its film location seen in the Railway Children, Yanks and the BBC production of Born and Bred as well as offering rides on Thomas the Tank Engine for the youngsters.

Literary lovers will delight in resting here due to its closeness to the Brontë Parsonage Museum which is the former home of the famous Brontë sisters and the location where their most famous works were written.

Further afield is the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Yorkshire Dales National Park where you can look forward to exploring the rich countryside sites by long walks, hiking or cycling if you're more adventurous.

Those keen on watersports can enjoy a spot of fishing or sailing at the nearby River Worth or River Aile.

About the location


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.
