About Mrs Fig's House

Mrs Fig’s House is a pretty 17th Century stone cottage sitting in the grounds of the owner's farmhouse close to the bustling village of Haworth in West Yorkshire. The owners have recently sympathetically refurbished the cottage using sustainable and environmental methods, bringing it into the 21st Century without losing its character and charm. Surrounded by views of moorland and pasture and with fantastic walks from the front door, it is the perfect retreat for couples looking for rural getaway. With a kingsize bedroom, fantastic open plan living area with a cosy log burner, and a modern kitchen which includes an Esse range cooker with an induction hob, it is the perfect blend of traditional charm with modern day creature comforts.

Located on the South Pennines, close to the moors frequented by the Bronte Sisters, it is rural bliss. There are stunning walks from the front door and it is just a ten minute stroll across the fields to the Pennine Way. Resident neighbours are the sheep and visitors at different times of the year are a significant variety of birds who nest in the garden or the surrounding fields and moorland. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting back with your morning cup of tea on a spring or early summer morning and listening to the sound of curlew, lapwing, oystercatchers, skylarks and even cuckoos. Various birds of prey can also occasionally be seen and heard, including a beautiful barn owl. When you are ready to rejoin civilisation it is just a ten minute drive to the historic village of Haworth with the world renowned Bronte Parsonage and its excellent pubs, shops and eateries. Spend a lazy afternoon exploring the cobbled streets, independent shops and tea rooms or hop on board the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway steam train and relive your memories of The Railway Children. There are more pubs just two miles away in the nearby villages of Stanbury and The Grouse Inn at Harehills has stunning views across the Worth Valley.

If you are looking to explore further afield, the market town of Hebden Bridge is ten miles away. It's a 20 minute scenic drive, or energetic souls can walk there across the moors! The ancient woodlands, open moorland and pretty villages in the Forest of Bowland and the Yorkshire Dales are within easy reach for a day out, whilst the coast is just over an hour away. For those craving a bit of history, art and culture, visit the World Heritage Site of Saltaire Village, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park or the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield.

Mrs Fig’s House is a delight at any time of the year and with short breaks available all year round it is always a good time to visit.

Location (Yorkshire)

Accommodation comprises:

Stone cottage located in a quiet and secluded spot next to the owner's farmhouse. Mrs Fig's House is separated from the main house by a large 17th century barn. Whilst it is private and not overlooked, the owners are on hand next door to answer any questions or provide local knowledge if needed. Accommodation is over two floors.

Ground floor:

  • Walk into the bright and airy open plan kitchen, dining and living area and be greeted by the smell of home baked bread. This is a lovely spot for either cooking up a feast in the contemporary kitchen or snuggling up on the comfy sofa next to the wood burning stove at the end of the day. With an Esse stove that combines the convenience of an induction hob with range cooking, a dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, and fridge/freezer the kitchen is well equipped for self-catering or treat yourselves to a night off cooking and order a homemade one pot meal from the owners to pop straight in the oven. There is both a breakfast bar and a dining table and chairs.

Upstairs

  • Climb the handcrafted wooden stairs to the spacious open plan landing which provides space for a dressing area as well as extra living space. It's a lovely peaceful spot to retreat to with a good book.
  • Bedroom with a king size bed with iron bedstead, sheep wool mattress and duvet. Enjoy a cup of tea in bed as you admire the extensive views over the fields and moors.
  • Shower room with underfloor heating and heated towel rail.

Outside: Enclosed patio with garden furniture and tubs of herbs which guests are welcome to help themselves to. Guests also have access to a quiet seating area in the main garden. Off street parking.

Additional information: WiFi, bed linen, towels and utilities are included. The owners are happy to arrange for guests to have a milk delivery, alongside eggs, butter and cream. They also have a small menu of homemade bread and one dish meals that can be reheated at your convenience. In addition, tea, coffee, sugar and a welcome basket of freshly baked bread and biscuits is provided. Sorry, no dogs due to the sheep farm next door. Smoking is not permitted.
