    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This place fully deserves an excellent rating. The hostess was very friendly and was at hand for any local advice and assistance but otherwise left us in peace to enjoy the cottage - which we did. In fact it is not so much a cottage - more of an upstairs fully self-contained annex consisting of a large bedroom, complete with a 4 poster bed and period furniture, along with a comfortable living/dining room and kitchenette. An en-suite had a spacious shower (but no bath if that is important to you). The apartment was fully equipped for self-catering with good views of the surrounding countryside and, while there was everything needed to prepare meals, Haworth provides a wide choice of places to eat which are withing walking distance. Highly recommended and we will stay again.”

    • “We've stayed twice at Libby's Place and we'll be back again. Its a beautiful house, in a beautiful village. Always a warm and friendly welcome, in beautiful surroundings. Plenty to go and see, or the perfect setting for a relaxing break away just putting your feet up in a very cost cottage.”

    • “This flat has everything. Reasonably close to the centre of Haworth yet still quiet and peaceful. Close to the preserved railway and the Keithly/Hebden Bridge bus runs at the top of the lane. Weather could have been better though.”

    • “The perfect base for visiting family at Christmas”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This was a beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed apartment with easy parking. The shower room was excellent, the bed very luxurious and the kitchen well equipped. The owners were very helpful and welcoming and had put up very tasteful Christmas decorations. There was plenty of space and wonderful semi-rural views, as well as the occasional steam train. We were able to visit family in Leeds, Huddersfield and Malton over Christmas conveniently as well as taking the opportunity to explore Haworth itself. All in all it was the perfect Christmas base.”

    • “Libbys (Palace) Place”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Libby's Place is absolutely a1 in every respect. It has charm, comfort and is home from home for a perfect holiday. Haworth is a great centre to explore the dales, there are so many interesting and wonderful places to visit, especially National Trust properties and of course the RHS gardens near Harrogate. Haworth itself is very pretty and welcomes visitors, and the highlight of our holiday was doing the Bronte walk out to Top Withens and Bronte falls, the museum is also a must, especially after doing the walk! We intend to return to see more of Yorkshire next year, a beautiful area for a great holiday. The worst part of our holiday was having to pack our bags and leave!”

    • “It was an amazing apartment. Beautifully furnished with attention to detail. Great views from the windows with wildlife to watch. It is in a good position to walk into Haworth, so we hardly needed the car. Plenty of eating places nearby. Easy access to the moors for great walking.”

    Mrs Norfolk, Leeds, March 2014

    • “Libby's Place was placed just perfect for visiting Haworth. We were just a couple of minutes walk away from the park and the old town hill that leads up to the Brontë Parsonage Museum. This old hill has cafes, restaurants and pubs that serve good food at prices to cover all purses or wallets. The weekend that started our holiday had the Steampunk festival. I didn't know anything about the history of Steampunk, but was told about it by the locals. Libby's Place is lovely and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.”

About the location


Skipton 10 miles; Hebden Bridge 10 miles.

The small village of Haworth was home to the famous Bronte sisters, who were inspired by the surrounding moorland to pen their novels, which have become classics of English Literature. Haworth is a village that time almost forgot, with its myriad of curiosity and antique shops, alleyways and cobbled streets creating a wonderful period atmosphere, all set against a framing backdrop of countryside famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights as wild, rugged and barren. Nearby, the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, provides a lovely day out with a regular service to the old village of Oxenhope. The area abounds with popular places to visit, including the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the National Railway Museum in York. The market town of Skipton, often fondly regarded as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
