The Bothy is located minutes from Shipley Glen, and a 10-15 min walk from Saltaire, the world heritage site with direct railway services to Leeds and Bradford. It's a self contained, cosy cottage with log burner and off street parking. Located next to our house, it's completely private, so great if you just want some peace and quiet. It's great for couples, solo adventurers and business travellers. LGTBQ friendly :-)

The space
The Bothy really is a private, homely space. It is independently owned and managed (rather than by a faceless management company) and has everything you need for a relaxed stay without the awkwardness of staying in someone's home or the bland surroundings of a generic hotel chain.

Our cleaning regime is in strict accordance of Airbnb's Covid-19 recommendations. I already pride myself of high levels of cleanliness, but additional cleaning is being undertaken in the Bothy before each new visit.

The property is aired fully prior to arrival, all bedding, towels, flannels and tea towels are washed at 60 degrees and treated with Dettol anti-bac laundry cleaner as a final rinse. All surfaces and handles are washed down thoroughly and treated with antibacterial spray to air dry, this includes all tech/audio equipment.

Soft furnishings, where possible are washed, or sprayed with Dettol surface spray. We also provide additional cleaning equipment for your use whilst staying as well as hand sanitiser.

Phew... now that's out of the way, a little more about the place :-)

Situated adjacent to our Edwardian house, the Bothy was converted four years ago from the former washhouse and staff quarters into a cosy, light filled contemporary space. It features a welcoming lounge with a sofa and an easy chair, Freeview TV, Apple TV box (for those with Netflix/Now TV/Prime Video accounts), DAB radio and log burner. There's also a small table for dining, a ground floor bathroom with walk in shower, a compact kitchen, and a first floor bed deck accessed via a staircase that features a double bed, USB charging pods, hanging rail and chest of drawers.

We provide free Yorkshire Tea, instant and fresh coffee and a selection of treats. We'll also pop a small Kilner bottle of skimmed milk in the fridge, so you can have a cuppa as soon as you arrive and settle in.

The kitchen is compact and features a two ring halogen hob. There is no conventional oven, however a small counter top oven and microwave are provided. There's also a toaster and kettle.

Towels are provided, as well as quality toiletries such as shower gel and shampoo and loo roll. Anti-bacterial wipes are also supplied, as well as hand sanitiser.

Free VirginMedia Wifi. Please note that the Wifi is operated as an extension to the main house hub and can, on occasions stall. If you have a Netflix, Prime Video or Now TV account, you are able to access these services via the Apple TV box.

The Bothy features a log burning stove. We're happy to supply a starter fuel pack for £8 which will include logs for one night, kindling and firelighters. Further logs can be purchased from local stores or you can simply bring your own. Please let us know if you require a fuel pack at least 24 hours before arrival.

We provide a range of lifestyle magazines, bought for guests to read. Please don't use them to light the fire or take away with you.

There is no washing machine. Should you require anything to be washed we're happy for you to use the machine and the tumble dryer in the main house for a small charge. For visits of more than a week, a mid stay towel and linen change is available on request at no extra charge.

We do have a travel cot should guests be travelling with a baby. However please note that it can only be set up on the ground floor. The accommodation isn't really suitable for small children.

No long terms lets, sorry.
Very LGTBQ friendly :-)
Please consider travel insurance, all bookings are subject to Airbnb's 'strict' cancellation policy, without exceptions.

Guest access
We are set back from the street and accessed via a private drive. There is secure gated parking for three cars. There is plenty of on-street parking.

Cyclists are able to store their bikes in our secure garage.

In the summer, guests are very welcome to use the numerous seating areas in the garden to relax.

Other things to note
Please be aware that we are not located in Baildon village, which is about 1.5 miles away. We are in a quiet residential area, it is not close to any amenities other than The Old Glen House pub. The nearest shops are located in Baildon village, a 25 minute walk or 5 min drive away. Some guests have marked us down for our quiet location, which is unfair given that we clearly state where we are... if you want hustle and bustle then we're probably not for you.
Ultimately guests choose to stay here and we can't move our location, so scoring us down is a little unjust.

We have two cats... one called Ginger Tom, who is very sociable and likes to go into the Bothy to say hello to guests. If you're not a cat person, just simply leave the front door closed.

Check out by 10am Monday-Saturday and 10.30am Sunday prompt (later check out can be arranged but are dependent on bookings).

For long stay bookings (more than two continuous weeks), a cleaning fee of £25 will be applied.

Please note, there will be times when I will not be around during your stay. Check-in will be via a key left in the lock box attached to the garage wall... should this be the case, you will be advised on booking how to access the key.

If you require ice during your stay, just ask at the main house and we'd be happy to give you some.

Location

Baildon, England, United Kingdom

Salts Mill has now re-opened, please check their website for opening times.

The neighbourhood is very residential and quiet. It's a popular area for middle class families. The house is located about 1.5 miles from Baildon village centre where you'll find pubs, bars, restaurants, Co-Op supermarket, cashpoints, post office etc.

Ideally you will need a car, but we are accessible via public transport and then on foot or by taxi. Some former guests have marked us down on our location, which amuses me given that there's a map that shows where we are, and I explicitly say we're in a very quiet, residential location and not in Saltaire itself... but what can you do!

We're set on the hill above Saltaire, the world heritage village which is within a 15 minute walk down through the woods. The village features the world renowned Salt's Mill as well as shops, restaurants, cafes and bars; Saltaire railway station has links to Leeds, Bradford and Skipton.

Shipley Glen is a few minutes walk from the house with access to the moors and the Old Glen House pub, which serves food.

It is a great base from which to explore Yorkshire's cities such as shoppers paradise Leeds and curry capital Bradford. Its magnificent towns such as Hebden Bridge, Skipton, Harrogate and Ilkley are all within a 30-40 minute drive.

Wharfedale, the southern most part of the Yorkshire Dales is within easy reach by car, and features the beautiful Bolton Abbey and picturesque villages of Grassington, Kilnsey and Kettlewell.
