The Cottage definitely exceeded our expectations (and they had been raised by the photographs available online) and the whole process of booking and arriving for our mini break was a smooth as silk.
I did contact the owner before our stay (very nice and helpful) and was advised of the key arrangements and all the information and directions for the Cottage were very helpful.
The Old Forge sits at the top of the hill of lovely cobbled streets of Haworth, therefore everything you require (restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and plenty of quaint little shops) are literally on your doorstep. However because The Old Forge is tucked away, these busy tourist attractions don’t impinge on your stay. Also you have the benefit of the parking space literally outside the kitchen door therefore making arriving and departing
The Cottage is a real gem. Fully renovated to a very high standard and split over 3 floors. You enter through the kitchen downstairs which is very well equipped and then you find the lounge on the second level (up the beautiful wooden staircase). The lounge area again is very tastefully decorated with a large flat screen telly and two comfortable sofas to relax into. The bedroom and that bathroom on the top floor are I’m sure, a particular attraction for a romantic weekend away as it is a luxury bathroom with a huge tub but actually the whole cottage was a delight.
We stayed for three nights and were lucky with the weather and both felt we would be very happy to return and use the cottage to explore the Dales and some of the other attractions nearby.
I would definitely recommend The Old Forge for a couple or family (you would need to use the sofa bed for the kids) but the property is really not suitable for somebody who has difficulty with stairs.
