A traditional Barn conversion comprising the adjacent Ash Court (sleeps 6) and Ash Cottage (sleeps 4). Both are 4 star Gold status.

Ash Hill Cottages are surrounded by a dense copse of trees , which helps give its secluded location , but it does have terrific views out over the valley and can have spectacular sunsets. The village of Thornton, birthplace of the Brontes is the local village. Whereas the nearest shop is the brilliant farmshop called Keelhams you may have seen it on Countryfile, it gets produce from 400 Yorkshire farmers. It tells you alot about a location when the nearest shop is a farmshop, especially one that people travel a long distance to get to.

The cottage is perfectly located for getting out and seeing some fabulous local places. The village of Haworth is just over 5 miles away, whilst its famous for the Bronte sisters with its Parsonage and museum, to me it always reminds me of the Hovis advert with a steep main cobbled street. It now has lots of craft and quirky independent shops, all this surrounded by "Wuthering Heights" countryside.

A short drive away is the Industrial heritage site of Saltaire, formed by and named after Sir Titus Salt and the river Aire. He built the village for his workers and had a unique philosophy of trying to look after (and/or control) his workers and their welfare. It was certainly very different from the Industrialisation taking place down the road in Bradford .The Leeds Liverpool Canal goes though the area -well worth a visit.

A 40 minute drive takes you to the wonderful market town of Skipton - Gateway to the Dales. Not only a great visit itself but its Gateway status gives you a good idea of the type of spectacular Yorkshire scenery that is just beyond.


Lovely walks including the Great Northern trail over the spectacular 23 arch viaduct in the village. Imagine the walks above Howarth in Wuthering Heights country.


National Route 69, tries to keep you away from traffic. Some of the iconic sections of Tour de Yorkshire and Le Grand Depart (Tour De France) are around here if you want to test yourself

Horse Riding

A number of local stables and bridleways in the area


By prior arrangement in the owners Carp pond


A variety of courses within a short drive including the 9 hole Headley Golf course just outside Thornton Village. Unusually one of the tees is directly under the viaduct! There are some lovely courses in this part of Yorkshire
