Nestled within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire, this welcoming and cheerful cottage is perfect for guests that want to be in the heart of a historic village.

This cosy yet eclectic property is less than 0.1 miles from Salts Mill which houses the David Hockney 1853 Art Gallery, an antiques market, and eateries. Saltaire is a well-preserved industrial Yorkshire village with textile mills, public buildings, and workers' housing, often used as a historic film set for period dramas. The village hosts a music festival every September and is well known for having live music throughout the year. The world-famous Ilkley Moor is 8 miles away by car or hop on the train at the end of the street for a different view of the Yorkshire countryside.

Admire the exceptional decor when entering the cottage and stepping into the living room. After a day of exploring local markets relax on the sofas in front of the Smart TV to enjoy a film or your favourite shows. In the kitchen, the culture continues with beautiful art pieces. The kitchen is fully fitted with everything you would need to prepare a delicious meal, including an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, and under-counter fridge (there is no freezer compartment). Moving upstairs, there is a spacious single bedroom and a double bedroom. Both have original sash windows with beautiful views of the moors, and ample storage and hanging space. The bathroom has a bath and a separate waterfall shower.

To the rear of the cottage is a delightful patio with seating and a table. A perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee or a drink in the evening.  On-street parking is available (subject to availability). Saltaire train station is located just 0.1 miles away.

Scribblers Cottage is small but perfectly formed! It is comfortably and tastefully decorated, and Ana was the perfect hostess- easy to contact and readily available if needed. The location is absolutely superb.
