Nice, but Style over Substance. Too many issues to justify price!
Nice Cottage, but is a bit style over substance. Does not justify the premium put on it. First and foremost, the cottage is nice, comfortable, clean and tidy. The owners seem friendly and helpful, and when you enter, you get a nice feeling. If you book this cottage, I am sure that you will have a good time. The area is nice, and local towns area wonderful with great food and pubs. However, we paid a premium price for what we believed was a premium cottage - unfortunately, in this regard it is more style over substance. The fridge in the kitchen was not working and awaiting a part (there was one in the utility room, but again, you expect this to be done), and even things like a wine bottle opener on the wall that you could not use. The shower in the main bathroom would only get hot when you turned it up to full and only turned it on a little bit (ie. low pressure). The heating is remotely controlled (I can only think to save cost), and we had one cold day with no heating, and the hottest day of the year so far when the heating was fully on. Both the cold on the cooler day, and the heat on the hot day were beyond uncomfortable and probably was he main reason we confirmed our decision to leave the cottage early. We believe that there was no underfloor heating in the lounge, or if it was, it didn't work, so be aware that the lounge is always cool. A fire does help heat it. Of course, some of these things can happen, but it feels that this is too much and my guess is that some of the issues are not new. The cottage is dog friendly from the point of view of stone and wooden floors. You can open the back door out onto the patio, and your dog can have a run on the attached field. However, be aware that the enclosed patio is not enclosed and private. The family next door, especially the children, constantly use it as a route through to the field and the road (3-4 times an hour someone was on your patio during the weekend and bank holiday Monday), and at one point, a local person who knew the neighbour came onto the patio with his 8-10 dogs to have a 15 min chat with the neighbour next door. We shut the door to the property to ensure we didn't get any of the other dogs in. We noticed children's play things on the drive by our cars also, and at one point, sure a motorbike was going to come around to the neighbours if they hadn't seen us going out to the car. This was really disconcerting when you are in your property. The area has some great places to eat - strongly recommend the Haworth Steam Brewing Company in Haworth main street, and also The George in Cullingworth - both dog friendly and great food (The Haworth Steam Brewing Company doesn't allow dogs in really busy times, I believe). The Dog and Gun is nice and friendly, and good food, but do not accept dogs even though most places on the internet say they do - new owners stopped the dogs. Anyway, summary - a nice place that I am sure you will enjoy and have a good time, but has too many issues that detract from the price you pay. We did message the owners about the heating, and have fed back about the neighbours and the shower (both of which I am not sure they were aware of). That said, you don't want to spend your holiday messaging the owners about all of the issues all of the time. So, until the issues are resolved, they give you control of the heating, and stop the neighbours using your patio as their own, then you can probably get a better place for cheaper. If you do book it, be aware of the issues.

This property was a fabulous revelation with superb finishing touches. including the kitchen that has everything you need and the dual aspect wood burner. The cottage is ideally situated for Haworth, the Worth Valley Railway (go for the day ticket and get the vintage bus to Haworth) and Hebron Bridge. Ideal for walking on the moors. I imagine it would be ideal to get away for Christmas.
