Read on to discover some of the attractions you can enjoy while staying at one of our West Yorkshire cottages. ... Read More »From many of our holiday cottages in West Yorkshire you can admire, in one breathtaking view, scenery combining the industrial landscape of times past with windswept, wild Pennine moorland. The Industrial Revolution exploited the fast-flowing waters in these parts to create a textile industry of world renown. The influence of the Victorians is apparent everywhere, not only in the civic architecture of these parts, but also in the stock of sturdy housing here. Nowhere can this be better seen than in attractive Hebden Bridge, where properties cling to the steep sides of the River Calder. Holmfirth, perhaps best known as the location for the long-running TV series Last of The Summer Wine, is also a classic example. Our West Yorkshire holiday cottages are a great way of discovering this fascinating area. The village of Saltaire, between Bradford and the Yorkshire Dales, has been designated a World Heritage site. This model village, created by a philanthropic Victorian industrialist, is dominated by the huge Salt's mill, which has found a new lease of life as a cultural centre housing the world's largest collection of works by Bradford-born artist David Hockney and a small number of select retail outlets. No visit would be complete without a trip to nearby Haworth, where the cobbled main street leads up to the parsonage, former home of the famous literary Bronte sisters. A short, yet exhilarating walk takes in Top Withens, the isolated ruin of a Yorkshire cottage which many believe featured in Wuthering Heights. Across the valley lies Ilkley Moor, made famous by a song which has become Yorkshire's unofficial anthem. It tells of a lover courting the object of his affections, Mary Jane, on Ilkley Moor without a hat (baht 'at). The singer warns how cold winds will result in his death from exposure; after burial his corpse will be consumed by worms, with ducks then eating the worms. Life comes full circle as the singers, in turn, eat duck. So, why not browse our selection to find one of our West Yorkshire cottages that catches your eye?
