  • “In spite of the weather we really enjoyed our week in Haworth.”

    The cottage was lovely and very comfortable. My husband’s only gripe was no shaving mirror in the bathroom

This cosy property is suitable for a couple or small family of three or four wanting to explore West Yorkshire and the surrounding remarkable moorland.

Step inside the property into a small hallway, which leads to the charming living/dining room, complete with quirky printed wallpaper, Karndean antique-style flooring, a choice of sofa and armchair to relax on, a cosy gas stove to warm up the space and a Smart TV that you can enjoy your favourite shows on as you wind down in the evenings.

The village backdrop consists of incredible moorland that inspired some of the Brontë sisters' finest literature, and is accurately described in Wuthering Heights as being wild, rugged and barren.

Visit the Brontë sisters' family home, now the Brontë Parsonage Museum, to learn more about the lives of these incredible novelists, before heading to the aptly named Wuthering Heights pub in the village of Stanbury for a refreshing afternoon beverage.

Stroll around nearby Central Park, or head slightly further afield to discover Penistone Hill Country Park, where you will find Brontë Bridge and the stunning Brontë Waterfall.

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.
