The Old Forge is in a great location, offering fantastic walks and scenery.

What can we say apart from, it was simply perfect for us. We loved our stay here and would certainly look to going back again at some point in the future. Superb for us as we love walking and there is no shortage of footpaths, country pubs and beautiful scenery all close at hand, not to mention three pubs within a few meters of the property itself.

The Old Forge is a beautiful cottage in a very convenient location for the gorgeous village of Haworth, yet still generally very quiet at night. The furnishings and fittings were very tasteful and the bathroom was amazing - had a huge bath and huge shower! A very comfortable and enjoyable stay - hoping to return.

We loved The Old Forge, it is well situated at the top end of main street. The cobbled street had lovely little shops and the views around this village are amazing. The Bronte museum was worth a visit. We also did the trip on the steam train. It was a lovely stay, quiet at night as everyone disappears once shops close. We did enjoy a lovely quiz night at the Old Hall Inn at the bottom of main street, great selection of beers according to hubby and also the Fleece half way up the hill great meal.

Delightful, cosy cottage. In an excellent location at the top of the high street, didn't need to use the car for the week. Great place to spend Christmas.

Beautiful property, a real home from home in the heart of Bronte country. An excellent place to escape to for the weekend.

The cottage was perfect for us - a couple in our twenties who wanted to enjoy the 'simple' things. We both live and work in the city, so escaping to this gem was perfect. We were able to cook lovely dinners in the big kitchen, fall asleep in front of the fire and enjoy the spectacular bathroom. A great retreat.

Haworth is a location where time has stood still. It is full of places to eat and independent shops. The cottage was decorated beautifully and was warm and cosy. It was well equipped and comfortable. In an excellent location for Leeds, York and just enjoying Haworth and its Bronte heritage.

Great cottage in a good location, excellent furnishings and good standard of decoration this cottage had everything you could need, it was just like being in your own home. I could easily live in this cottage and that is something I have never said about a holiday rental property before.
Mr Everitt

The location was excellent as was the size of the property which was a surprise. All rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated. The walk in shower was a particularly good feature and the overall ambience and feeling of history from the property made it a special place to stay.

Central location. Lovely cottage, well furnished and interesting. Great area for walking and visiting tourist attractions slightly further afield. Loads of options for eating out on the doorstep.
Mr Armstrong

We loved the Old Forge, a beautiful restoration of a historic building with all the comforts and conveniences which made for a great holiday. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and pleasant. Haworth is a gem of a village with lots to see and do and a great selection of places to eat. We would definitely like to return.

Excellent location combining local amenities with access to the moors. The Old Forge is warm, cosy and a real home from home. We were quite sad to leave! Haworth is a magical place to spend Christmas.

Warm, cosy and very welcoming cottage in an excellent village location. All rooms very well equipped and decorated. Perfect for couples looking for a romantic place to stay.
Mrs Coulson

The Old Forge was very welcoming, we felt relaxed from the moment we got there. The location was perfect, as you are tucked away, but right in the middle of the Old Village. The house was perfectly furnished and equipped. It is such a lovely house! It was a wonderful holiday, and we will be going back, and recommending to our family and friends.

Mrs Shaw

Loved getting away from it all and the fact this cottage is in the centre of the village made our stay enjoyable as we were snowed in most of the week but the nearest pub was only 20 yards away. Would recommend this cottage to anyone and we do hope to return here again. The cottage was very well presented must be one of the best we have stayed in.
Mr Mann

A lovely cottage, with great facilities all that needed for a good break, close to all facilities and great pubs.
November 2014
My boyfriend and I had a super break in The Old Forge. The cottage, set over 3 floors is very spacious and is decorated to a very high standard. The bath is fantastic, and the log fire provided a perfect atmosphere for the much needed afternoon naps after walking around the moors! We loved the cottage and wanted to stay longer, a perfect re-treat to 'get away from it all'!
May 2015
We stayed at the Old Forge for one week at the beginning of May. The cottage is absolutely gorgeous and maintained to a high standard with luxury bed linen and towels. Even though we had a few rainy days during our stay, it wasn't an issue as the cottage is so relaxing and homely and is situated literally within one minute walk of three local pubs ! One of our faviurites was The Black Bull where the landlord and staff were very friendly. I would also recommend the meals at The Fleece located further down the main street as they were absolutely delicious and reasonably priced.
November 2013
Fantastic Holiday cottage - very well equipped and a really romantic hideaway for two - looking forward to visiting again

My wife and I honeymooned in The Dales three years ago so a return to Yorkshire was always something we wanted to do. The Old Forge in Haworth is perfectly located for a Christmas stay as it has all the convenience of the town with its restaurants, cafes and unusual shops, not to mention an array of welcoming pubs! We walked on the moors, followed in the footsteps of The Railway Children and had a fabulous Christmas lunch in The Old Haworth Hall. The house itself is warm, characterful and has modern conveniences of wi-fi and a good mobile signal. Sitting in the lounge with the woodburner roaring and enjoying a glass of mulled wine was a real treat. We loved the house and the location!
July 2013
We had the absolute pleasure in staying at the Old Forge duringthe Haworth 1940s Weekend and week after. What a wonderful house, village and event - I would strongly recommend all 3. The Forge was beautifully presented, very luxurious bathroom and tasteful soft furnighsings etc. The size of all the rooms were impressive and well decorated . Although the outside space was at the front and overlooked by the neighbours, it was a pretty square of houses and didn't deter us from sitting outside in the evening enjoying the area. The parking space out front was very convenient. The Forge is situated at the top of the village close to various pubs & restaurants and has easy connections to local tourist attractions. I would highly recommend The Forge and look forward to staying there again in the future.

A charming cottage with superb amenities in an ideal location near the centre of Haworth. The cottage could not be faulted and is tastefully decorated and furnished and very comfortable. It is very well equipped and has everything you would require for a self catering holiday. The bathroom is beautiful, clean and modern. The owners could not be more helpfull. Highly recommended.
April 2013
This cottage was brilliant, we stayed for my birthday and our wedding anniversary. We got snowed in but the cottage was warm and very cosy. The bathroom in this place was out of this world (warning if your under 5'6" you may need someone in the bath with you as it's so big. We did manage to get out for my birthday and visited the local pub that was just a matter of yards away(no noise). The area is just beautiful and there are plenty of shops to visit. The only thing I would do next time is take a weeks food shopping with us if we went in winter as it was very difficult to get to the spar with the snow and ice. I would recommend this cottage to anyone and will be going again. The only thing I found was space for food storage in the kitchen that was a bit lacking and as the kitchen is so big it would not take much to add another unit or even a couple of shelves. The owners whom we spoke to are very friendly and there to help. I would say if your going to visit Yorkshire and the Bronte country you could not go wrong with this cottage, its very close to all amenities and right in the centre of the village.

Location was amazing, tucked away right in the centre of Haworth. Cosy, comfortable cottage on 3 floors with a great woodburner and a luxurious bathroom.
Mr Rudd
May 2016
We loved the location, and the car parking space in front of the property was an added bonus. We couldn't believe how peaceful and quiet the cottage was considering how close it is to all that Haworth has to offer; restaurants and bars and the starting point for some beautiful walks and at the top of the hill. Fabulous.
Mrs Girling

The Old Forge is in an excellent location in the centre of Haworth, 5 stars (with a bathroom to die for). Could not fault anything and we were so happy we've already booked again for next year!
