Higher Scholes Cottage - Oakworth, Haworth, West Yorkshire, England - Sleeps 2

Higher Scholes Cottage

Higher Scholes Cottage offers luxurious self-catering accommodation nestling in the very heart of the beautiful Bronte countryside, affording spectacular views over Haworth and the famous Bronte moors beyond.

The Cottage has been awarded 5 stars from the English Tourism Council, and has been A White Rose Award, for excellence, finalist twice, for its first class accommodation, and the owners commitment to customer care.

The Barn itself is a single storey cottage with a small garden with garden furniture. Being south facing the cottage enjoys a sunny aspect with sun throughout the day.

Higher Scholes Cottage is in a semi-rural position commanding stunning views over Pensitone Hill and Bronte Country. The cottage offers the best of both worlds with the peace and tranquility of the countryside, and the local village of Oakworth with amenities just one mile away.

There's an award winning pub half a mile from the cottage serving excellent food and walks that start from the end of the drive. Mill shops abound in this part of the country selling interesting and local produce - why not discover the little villages and mills on the Keighley Worth Valley Heritage Railway from Oakworth. The area also offers plenty of attractions and great days out including Bolton Abbey, the city of Leeds, Eureka (fantastic museum for children), the Pennine Way and Skipton often called the 'Gateway to the Dales with its castle.

Higher Scholes Cottage is an ideal base for enjoying all that the area has to offer, whether it's a family holiday or a romantic break, it has all the right ingredients; luxury, comfort and a beautiful setting to make a truly memorable holiday.
