This beautifully presented cottage provides the perfect romantic getaway to explore this wonderful part of West Yorkshire.

Retreat to this exquisite Yorkshire cottage in the village of Saltaire, approximately 10.5 miles from Halifax. A truly gorgeous, traditional property, the delightful, one-bedroom home sleeps just two guests, making it an ideal sanctuary for a couple seeking some quality time together. The cottage is set at the heart of the Victorian village, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Named after its founder, Sir Titus Salt who built a textile mill, and designed by architects Lockwood and Mawson, the village is famous for its Italianate architecture.

Enjoy staying in the unique location, close to the Saltaire Mill complex, which comprises colourful independent shops, cafes and restaurants, plus a gallery housing works by artist David Hockney. Take a barge journey along the Leeds to Liverpool canal while you are here, or a trip along the Shipley Glen Cable Tramway, believed to be the oldest working cable tramway in the country. Roberts Park, with its 14 acres of lawns, walks and flowerbeds, is also worth visiting while you are in Saltaire.

Enter this former mill worker’s cottage and find yourselves in the welcoming lounge, where you can cuddle up on the sofa in front of the wood burner-effect electric fire during the colder months. Read your books in here as you enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of cake, bought fresh from a bakery on one of your trips out. Watch the Smart TV in here too: this comes with Netflix, giving you plenty of choices of films and programmes to sit down to together.

Make your way into the charming kitchen, with its exposed brickwork, to prepare dinner on your romantic nights in. Make fresh coffee in here in the machine too then perch at the breakfast bar with a cup as you peruse the Sunday papers. Climb the stairs to find the delicately styled double bedroom up on the first floor, together with the beautiful bathroom, complete with a free-standing bath. Have a long hot bubble bath in here after each busy day out.

Sit outside in the courtyard garden on warm, sunny days. Have morning coffee out here or perhaps a gin and tonic before dinner. Fire up the BBQ if you feel like dining out in the fresh air. There is parking for one car at the cottage, plus a shed for keeping bikes in.

  • 1 double bedroom
  • Bathroom with roll-top bath with shower attachment and WC
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, Nespresso coffee machine
  • Welcome pack included
  • Travel cot and highchair available on request
  • Smart TV in the lounge- with Netflix

From Saltaire, travel 8 miles to the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Visit Ilkley, 9 miles from the cottage, a former spa town, situated in the Wharfe Valley and known for its beautiful moor. Head 16.5 miles to Bolton Abbey, also in the Yorkshire Dales, where you can wander the picturesque grounds, stroll around the priory ruins and enjoy the woods, river and even a waterfall. Make a day trip into Harrogate, 19 miles away, another impressive Victorian spa town; one is known for its antiques and fine art. Wander its streets, pausing in its fascinating independent shops and finding a spectrum of eateries to choose from.

Head to Halifax for the day during your stay in Saltaire. This thriving market town was once the centre of the wool trade in Victorian England, which blessed the town with wealth and good fortune. Many of the opulent buildings and monuments from this time can still be seen as you walk around the town, including Piece Hall, a magnificent Georgian building, which was once the place where weavers sold their cloth. Nowadays, it’s a fabulous place to grab a tasty bite to eat or peruse the independent shops and boutiques, as well as catch some outdoor performances.

Other impressive buildings include Halifax Minster, the town’s gothic church; the Grade II-listed Halifax Town Hall, created by the same man who designed the Houses of Parliament; and Shibden Hall, a 15th-century historic home surrounded by a glorious park, once home to famous lesbian diarist Anne Lister, who wrote her secret diaries there. The parkland is an excellent place to spend a day, where you can walk beside the pretty flowerbeds, row across the Mere or ride on the miniature train which will delight any children in your party. Kids will also love Eureka! The National Children’s Museum, which is sure to capture their imaginations with its 400 interactive exhibits.

If you enjoy food, make sure to visit Halifax’s Borough Market, which is a stunning Grade II-listed building hosting an award-winning covered market throughout the week. Sample some local produce and pick up a tasty treat to enjoy back at your luxury holiday cottage.

Had a fantastic week in Saltaire, an area of the U.K that we hadnt visited previously but has an awful lot going for it. The cottage is very comfortable within a stones throw away from Salts Mill, shops and cafes - would recommend the Quaffery for very tasty toasted cheese Ciabattas and coffee. Being on the outskirts of Bradford we found the roads Read morebusy but the station had great links to places of interest in the surrounding areas so used that a bit. Owner Jackie very friendly and helpful. Hide

The cottage is beautiful and in a fantastic location for exploring Saltaire and all its lovely places to eat. Walking in the park, in Roberts Wood, exploring the Salt Mills and surroundings you would never know you were so close to Bradford and city living. The train station is also very close and only a 15min ride into Leeds. The welcome pack withRead more local goodies was very appreciated. Hide

An interesting and enjoyable stay in a well located cottage in Saltaire. Everything about the accommodation was pleasing, clean, comfortable, well decorated and sufficiently equipped. The host was caring, would certainly recommend a stay at Bobbin Cottage.

Saltaire is a unique location full of interest and history and is little known in other parts of uk. Its certainly worth a visit with its fabulous gallery and individual restaurants on tap. Its an excellent base for exploring this delightful part of Yorkshire.

We had a great holiday. The cottage was clean and decorated to the highest standard. The neighbours were really friendly. Despite being located in a line of terraced cottages it was surprisingly quiet. The location was ideal for exploring Bronte Country, riding along the Leeds to Liverpool canal and of course Saltaire is full of character.

A beautifully furnished property with a very welcoming feel. The rear yard is an afternoon sun trap and the street very peaceful. Saltaire is fascinating to explore. A visit to the Mills gallery and excellent cafe are not to be missed. I especially enjoyed an afternoon watching cricket in Roberts Park. There are fabulous walking and cycling optionsRead more both from the doorstep and a little further afield. Jackie was an excellent host and I would highly recommend Bobbin Cottage as a place to stay. Hide

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
