About Colin & Pamela Dickinson
My wife and I have lived in Canada for 40 years, but were born and bred just east of Manchester and we both grew up on farms. We are now retired and decided to come back to our roots to buy a little of "God's Country". We have travelled a great deal and always come back to Yorkshire and the Haworth area. Perfectly situated to visit Yorkshire, the Dales and the Lake District. Our vision was to make this our bolt hole for 5 or 6 weeks a year, then the rest of the time we would let it out. After buying in June 2017 we came back to the house in Oct/Nov for 4 weeks to upgrade and improve the house to make it feel every bit like "home away from home." My wife Pam said we have never worked so hard on 'getting the place right." We had a dead line of 4 weeks and with the help of a local home improvement contractor we managed it just in time!! Pam loves the local history and natural beauty of the area and has loads of information about West Yorkshire and the Dales. She has found many fabulous dining establishments...I think we have taste tested each every place there is to try.From pub grub, high teas, fine dining down to the best farm shops in the area! This will save you lots of time on your first visit!
Colin & Pamela Dickinson purchased this House in 2017
Why Colin & Pamela Dickinson chose Haworth
It is siutated perfectly for exploring all the local history and beauty of Haworth. Through-out the year there is always a special event going on in Haworth. From the 1940's weekend to "Hawortheen" in October to the best Christmas decorated street.. something out of a Dickens novel! Then discover the rest of Yorkshire, the largest county... and some say the best in England! Going north to The Dales, East to Scarbourough and Whitby on the coast, or west and you are soon in the Lake District. All make many perfect days out as you discover Yorkshire.
What makes this House unique
We bought this property because it is situated perfectly in Yorkshire to visit all the sites in our favourite part of England. We wanted to be in an area with lots of interesting history and heritage to explore. Every trip out will bring new adventures and new friends alike. The locals are so helpful and kind and they always have a funny tale to tell! We love history. Pam is currently writing a book about our 192 year old house in Canada. When we bought this house, the history and the area fascinated us. There are so many places to visit locally that made Britain famous during the Industrial Revolution. From the cotton mills, canals for transport to the building of towns like Saltaire. The counties agricultural history is vibrant and is preserved in the many museums and stately homes. To sample the Yorkshire food traditions try some of the many excellent pubs and restaurants. The scenery is breathtaking! With a multitude of foot paths and hiking trails, you can enjoy the changing seasons in the countryside.

Lovely cottage in a great location
Fantastic, cottage, very close to the town centre. The place was clean, very comfortable and had everything we needed. We hope to come back next year! Fully recommended.
Fantastic property in a great location with a lovely garden!
Beautiful house, easy check in/out. Will definitely stay again. Thank you!
A home from home. The perfect base for exploring.
We booked Maple Leaf Cottage at the last minute for the Easter break not really knowing what to expect as there were no reviews. We needn’t have worried.
We were greeted on our arrival by the friendly housekeeper, Sandra, who showed us where everything was and how the important things worked. The house itself is beautifully finished and I honestly don’t think there was anything we wanted for. The owners, Colin and Pamela, provided a pack with lots of information on the house, places to eat and things to see and do. That was really helpful and we used it a lot.
While the weather at the start of the week was very poor, we were still lovely and cosy in the house. There is so much to see and do in this area and we didn’t manage a fraction of what we had hoped to see. We will be back.
A hidden gem.
We spent very comfortabel days in this cozy cottage
gemütlich, sauber und einladend
Wir (Ehepaar, Kleinkind) haben Haworth Ende August für 10 Tage besucht. Das Häuschen war von Beginn an sehr einladend und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die organisatorischen Abläufe (Kontaktaufnahme, Buchung, Ankunft, Schlüsselübergabe über Schlüsselbox, Betreuung über Housekeeper, Rückerstattung Kaution) haben problemlos funktioniert. Die Ausstattung war wie beschrieben (außer einen Föhn, den wir aber vielleicht auch nicht gefunden haben :)). Besonders gemütlich wird es am Abend im Wohnzimmer am Kamin. Innerhalb von 5 min. ist man zu Fuß auf der Main Street mit zahlreichen Pubs, Restaurants und cafés. Ein sehr malerisches Städtchen, sehr empfehlenswert. Innerhalb von 5 min. können traumhafte Wanderwege ins Moor erreicht werden. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Kleiner Tipp an Halloween oder Weihnachten bestimmt traumhaft!!!
