Tucked away in the heart of Saltaire, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this charming cottage provides the ideal base for a couple to enjoy a romantic retreat.

Step back in time and stay in this traditional abode that’s nestled within a row of pretty Yorkshire stone cottages. Situated in the beautiful village of Saltaire, your delightful couple’s retreat is ideally placed for unravelling the rich history of the area and discovering the rugged countryside that surrounds you. Explore to your heart’s content with a picnic in tow, or whet your whistle at one of many country pubs to experience a true taste of Yorkshire hospitality.

Bask in the old-world charm of the cosy lounge, appreciating the original fireplace that is now a decorative focal point and a pleasant sight when snuggling up under a blanket. Imagine curling up with a mug of hot chocolate warming your hands, savouring that first sip as you watch an exciting film on the TV or simply enjoy each other’s company and chat about your day’s adventures. There’s a small fold-away table and chairs for mealtimes and board games, and if you wish to have alternative sleeping arrangements, the settee doubles as a sofa bed.

Return from your explorations with armloads of local goodies and tempting produce and prepare to whip up hearty meals in the compact yet excellently equipped kitchen. Laid out in a galley-esque style with ingenious storage and wooden worktops, the kitchen has a slight French country cottage kitchen feel. There’s an under the counter fridge with a freezer compartment, a gas oven and hob and a microwave for your culinary needs. Delve into your welcome pack to find some additional treats and essentials, put the kettle on and settle down for some excellent fare.

Climbing the cottage-style stairs will reveal a pretty bedroom with an ornate fireplace, seating and storage. The twin beds can be made up as a king-size zip-and-link bed if you prefer, catering for couples and friendship duos. The bathroom is a treat in itself with a shower over the bath for long soaks, so you’ll be sorely tempted to add bubbles galore for an evening pampering session. The hallway is home to floor-to-ceiling bookshelves which you are welcome to peruse for a new novel to devour.

Outside, your private patio awaits al fresco drinks in the last of the evening sunshine. After an active day, the shed offers secure bike storage, and there is on-street parking available on a first-come, first-served basis. On the nights you don’t feel like cooking you’ll be able to don your favourite outfit and venture out to eat, choosing from a fine selection of pubs and restaurants less than 0.5 miles away. During the festival season you’ll be able to enjoy the village coming alive with a series of stalls and lots of music and entertainment. For walkers, there are numerous trails leading into the countryside from your doorstep to suit all abilities.

  • 1 twin zip-and-link bedroom (which can be made into a super-king-size on request) and a double sofa bed in the lounge (for alternative sleeping only)

The picture-perfect village of Saltaire is brimming with history and perhaps best known for its UNESCO World Heritage Site status, making this a wonderful destination for immersing yourself in local heritage and culture. Discover the Saltaire Mill complex, time your visit with the lively annual festival and embrace gentle afternoons at Roberts Victorian Park with canal boat rides and picnics.

You’ll be based 8.5 miles from Haworth, a village that celebrates its close connection to the famed Bronte sisters who resided at the Parsonage from 1820. Step back in time and be inspired by their life story, walking the routes they once followed and taking the time to stop and reflect in their favourite writing spots. The ruins at Top Withens is thought to be the inspiration of Wuthering Heights, but you’ll also need to visit Bronte Bridge, Bronte Falls and the legendary Ponden Kirk to really get a feel for what inspired their literacy genius.

A walker’s paradise, the Pennines and the Bronte Way are just two of the most popular routes for all abilities, and you’ll also have the Yorkshire Dales (18.5 miles) if you are keen to reconnect with nature. A natural playground, the stunning Dales scenery is peppered with countless attractive little towns and villages. The historic town of Skipton (15 miles) is also close by and offers a host of other attractions including its very own castle. There are lots of options to eat here as well as independent shops making it a great option for a full day out.

Changing pace, Bradford (3.5 miles) combines majestic architecture with a bustling cosmopolitan vibe throughout its mesmerising streets. Sample a taste of Victorian-era Bradford in Little Germany, listen to Evensong at the cathedral and embrace the macabre and visit the Undercliffe Cemetery. Owing to the city’s status as a UNESCO City of Film, the National Science and Media Museum is a must. Round off with delicious food and good wine in one of the many bars, bistros and restaurants at North Parade or the West End too for a true slice of the Bradford culinary scene.

Had a very pleasant stay in this lovely cottage. Very quiet and comfortable but thankfully hasn't been over-modernised.

We had a fantastic stay at this worker's cottage in Saltaire. The location was perfect and the cottage itself was lovely and done out in a way that is very sympathetic to its heritage. The pictures are very accurate. The quality of the utensils in the kitchen were really good (normally we find pans and knives are a bit poor). The owner is very niceRead more and helpful. We would definitely return. 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.
