  • "Townend Cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped."

    Just the right size for a couple and a dog and has a good size safe secure garden. The off road parking was a real bonus. Situated a few minutes walk from the main street with all it's shops, pubs and restaurants. Also for the more energetic you can walk from the door step to Penistone Hill Country Park and the Bronte Waterfalls. I would definitely recommend Townend Cotrage.

    It’s very easy to keep clean and has a nice little enclosed garden. The main charm is its location - turn down the hill and you have shops and very dog friendly cafes, a few nice parks and some easy footpath walks. Turn up the hill and you have some lovely moor walks up Penistone Hill and along to the Brontë Falls. We had a lovely stay and are grateful to our hosts for sharing their little house.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Townend Cottage."

    The property was spacious and clean and was in a ideal location for a short walk into the town centre. The bed was comfortable and the shower was very powerful. With the weather being so good during our stay, it was a bonus to have the garden to sit out in to soak up the sun. The only improvements we would suggest would be to have a lawn in the back garden, rather than all of the plants, which were quite overgrown, and there was also a shortage of some crockery, such as large bowls and larger drinking glasses. Having said that, this in no way reduced our enjoyment of our stay and we’d definitely recommend Townend Cottage to anyone looking for a property in Howarth.

    Perfectly situated at the top of the hill in Haworth with under 5 minutes walk to shops, cafes and pubs. The cottage was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean and had everything you'd want for a comfortable and relaxing stay. We couldn't get the gas fire to work so a call to the owner and they came and sorted the issue in 10 minutes from calling them. We were very lucky with the weather and sat outside in the sunny garden after our walks, only issue we could see with the garden is our dog could get through the bushes into the neighbours garden so we had to keep him on a long training lead. Other than that this cottage is perfect and we would have no hesitation at all in returning.

The property

Located in the centre of Haworth village, offering hard to come by off-road parking and a large private garden, is Townend Cottage, a rare West Yorkshire gem.

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.

Enjoy mealtimes at the dining table, which comfortably seats the whole group, or for a romantic meal for two, the kitchen offers an additional small dining table, charmingly laid out for two, as well as a host of modern conveniences and appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave, fridge and freezer.

There is a convenient under stairs storage room for additional belongings, as well as a cloakroom with basin and WC.

For a moment of tranquility, sit in the sunroom with a good book and enjoy the views of Hawoth and the moors from the large window, while the door leads out to the large multi-level garden, accessed down a set of stairs, where you will find a patio area and seating, perfect for a morning coffee or alfresco lunch admiring your surroundings.

When it's time to get some rest, head up the carpeted staircase to find two charming bedrooms; a king-size double with zip/link feature and a window seat to make the most of the impressive views, as well as a spacious single room, both with ample wardrobe and storage space, Smart TVs and served by the family shower room, where you can end the day with a refreshing rinse in the large walk-in shower.

Haworth village centre is a short stroll away and offers an incredible array of antique shops and galleries to browse, as well as mysterious cobbled streets to explore and a plethora of cafes, pubs, and eateries to tempt you, in this delightful Pennine village, you'll feel you have stepped back in time.

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.

For a day out filled with adventure, head to the market town of Keighley, home to the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, which featured in the film The Railway Children, where you can hop on a steam train and enjoy the incredible moorland views from your window.

Also worth exploring in Keighley is Cliffe Castle and its extensive grounds, the National Trust's East Riddlesden Hall, several parks and and a bus museum, where you can see more than 100 single and double-decker buses.

Those who enjoy an adventure can climb the peak of Ilkley Moor, part of a conservation area offering incredible views, opportunities to see wildlife and multiple walking trails.

Spend time exploring Skipton, known as the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and home to a 12th century castle, weekly market and extensive selection of pubs, restaurants and shopping facilities.

The bustling cities of Leeds and Bradford are within easy reach, as is the natural splendour of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Townend Cottage is a well-placed property for exploring Haworth and the surrounding countryside.

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.
