The property

This stone-built end-terrace cottage is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in the popular village of Haworth.

Situated close to the steam heritage railway station and ten minutes’ walk from the town centre, this delightful cottage offers comfortable accommodation for a family or group of friends looking to explore this historic village and the picturesque moorlands of Bronte country.

Set over three floors, the ground floor has a compact well-equipped kitchen.

Also on this floor is the traditionally furnished sitting room with dining area where everyone can socialise together and relax in front of the gas flame-effect fire.

On the first floor are two bedrooms a single and a king-size double, plus a modern shower room.

A further flight of stairs leads up to a second sitting area, an ideal teenage retreat with a sofa bed, TV, en-suite bathroom and the added convenience of a small kitchenette where you can make a quick cuppa without having to go all the way downstairs.

Being in a small cul-de-sac, guests can make use of the folding outdoor furniture on the paved area to the front of the property to enjoy a morning coffee before setting off for the day.

Haworth is steeped in literary history with its close association with the famous Bronte sisters, and there are a variety of walks allowing visitors to follow in the footsteps of Catherine and Heathcliff across the wild rugged moorland.

Amble down to the station and enjoy a fascinating steam train ride on the heritage Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, or spend time exploring the cobbled streets and alleyways of Haworth with its antique shops, shops as well as traditional pubs, quaint cafes and restaurants.

A little further afield is the market town of Skipton with its castle, or why not spend a day in the Victorian spa town of Harrogate?

This cottage is in a great location for a break away.

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.
