Full description

North Ives Farm is situated between the villages of Oxenhope and Haworth on the edge of the Worth Valley. Oxenhope, to the south, has a Co-op store, a pharmacy and primary school while Haworth, to the north, with its links to the Bronte family, has a picturesque cobbled high street with numerous independent shops, pubs and eateries as well as a primary school. The larger town of Keighley lies to the north east having direct rail links to Skipton, Bradford and Leeds and 20 minutes by car to Hebden Bridge with direct rail line to Manchester.

North Ives Farm and the cottage, No 4 North Ives, enjoy a delightful rural position within a small group of dwellings overlooking the Worth Valley steam railway. The farmhouse incorporates a former separate cottage offering scope to create separate self-contained annexe accommodation for extended family or teenagers if required.
