The property

Haworth 2 miles.

A 17th century, stone-built, semi-detached farmhouse, located on a hillside just on the outskirts of Haworth in the heart of Bronte Country.

With wonderful views across Ponden Reservoir and the surrounding fells, and close to the lovely village of Haworth, this is a fantastic location for your holiday home.

Fully-renovated, this Haworth cottage provides first class accommodation of character and charm in the most enviable of positions.

Individually styled, the property combines both modern and traditional styles befitting of a 17th century cottage.

The spacious kitchen with dining area features dual-aspect windows to take advantage of the views and an archway leads guests through to the warm and cosy sitting room with a lovely woodburner.

Upstairs, this Haworth cottage boasts two spacious bedrooms, one with a king-size double bed and the second with two Victorian single beds.

Outside, the spacious patio terrace has lovely open views and provides an ideal location for a summer evening barbecue or a place to relax, drink a glass of wine and watch the sun go down over the reservoir and the distant fells; the sunsets are very special!

For those wishing to get away from it all and enjoy fine country living and beautiful walks, including the Top Withens, made famous by Catherine and Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights, this is the perfect Haworth cottage for your self-catering holiday.

About the location

HAWORTH

Skipton 13 miles; Hebden Bridge 8 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.
