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.
