Welcome to West Yorkshire's heather-clad moorlands and remote, craggy landscapes, the place that so inspired the classic works of Charlotte, Emily and Anne - the 'Brontë Sisters'. Affectionately known as 'Brontë Country', it's a wonderful location for a cottage break whichever season you choose. With fantastic Bronte Country cottages available throughout the year, there's never been a better time to visit this fantastic area of Yorkshire.
Explore the beautiful village of Haworth
Visitors tend to flock to Haworth, brimming with charming shops, inviting restaurants and cosy pubs. This is where the three sisters wrote most of their works while living in the parsonage, an attractive Georgian house nestled between the village and wild moorland. Sykes has a huge range of Haworth cottages to rent throughout the year, for those wishing to visit this popular holiday spot. Open now as the Bronte Parsonage Museum, it's a fascinating place to browse many of their personal belongings and learn more about their lives. But there's another side to Haworth - the village loves to party! Throughout the year, there are all kinds of unique events. Highlights include a nostalgic 1940s weekend, complete with big band dances and vintage cars and a swinging 1960s weekend, when scooters and Minis cruise the streets. Dress up and get into the mood - and remember to book your Brontë Country cottage well in advance. Families, meanwhile, will love the selection of Christmas festivities like the magical torchlight parade.
What else? Stretch those legs along the Brontë Way, a
43-mile way-marked trail over stark Pennine landscapes, linking key
spots associated with the sisters. Explore the beautiful grounds
and exquisite rooms of East Riddlesden Hall. Meet Santa on the
Keighley & Worth Valley Railway. And sample sensational curries
in Keighley. And to make your stay in a Brontë Country cottage
