    “Great location.”

    everything on the doorstep.

    everything on the doorstep. Cottage was nice and clean and in good order Make sure you buy plenty of fuel for the fires, as without it we felt quite cold ,as the heating was on a timer and you were not to mess with it. Tea ,coffee and milk on arrival and a nice fruit cake. No sugar so don't forget it. No problems with the stairs for us, but anyone unsteady on their feet would be in trouble. We enjoyed our week there and would recommend

The property

An outstanding, stone-built, terraced cottage, occupying a superb elevated position in the village of Haworth, home of the famous Bronte sisters.

Set over three floors, the cottage has been renovated to a very high standard and provides unusual accommodation, making it an ideal holiday home for a romantic break in this fabulous location.

One of our premier cottages with immense character and charm throughout, it features a spacious lower ground floor kitchen/diner with unusual curved ceiling, and part of the stone floor has been glassed over to provide a viewing point down into the old well.

The ground floor features a spacious sitting room with original beams, exposed stonework, and a warm and cosy sitting area with a woodburning stove.

A first floor bedroom offers a king-size bed with an en-suite, exposed A-frame beams, a lovely window seat and a feature stone fireplace with another woodburning stove.

The accommodation is a wonderful combination of the old and the new and provides a first-class holiday home in a great location, just a few yards from the head of the high street.

The town is steeped in literary history, being formerly home to the Bronte sisters.

Haworth has much to offer including traditional pubs, restaurants and cafes, and a variety of walks allowing visitors to follow the trails of Heathcliffe and Catherine along the famous Top Withens.

Nearby Skipton was voted as the Best Place to Live in Britain in 2014, with its cobbled streets and delightful castle, while further afield is the Victorian spa town of Harrogate, boasting fabulous shops, an excellent theatre and the fantastic Royal Pump Room Museum.

Bay Cottage is a holiday cottage of real character and style.

About the location


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.
