    Private parking a bonus. Lovely walks from door over moors, Bronte waterfalls, and reservoir. Plenty of pubs to choose from within a few mins walk.

  • "This is a lovely comfortable and warm cottage."

    It was spotless and is well equipped. The location is ideal for the village/ main street and also the walks over penistone hill are close by. Having off street parking and directly outside the house is really helpful. It has a lovely garden and nice views. I would definitely recommend staying here.

  • "The property is quite reasonable it has a very steep stairway to bedroom and shower roomand the out side stairs to the gardenare very steep the reason for only 3 stars is the location of the cottage it is at the top of a very steep hill as is most of the village so you have to be fairly fit."

  • "We had a lovely stay in your cottage."

    It was warm & cozy and was well stocked with the essentials. The conservatory and garden would have been lovely to use in dry weather. The location was great with it being so close to the main street and the parking space really useful. Thankyou for your message with directions and lovely welcome.

  • "We decided on a relatively last minute break, after searching we found this little gem."

    Selling point for us were onsite parking and close proximity to shops/pubs! Well this property ticks all the boxes. It’s perfectly situated just a short, 5 minute, walk from the prettiest street, which has several eateries and cute little shops. The house has everything you could ask for, well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It was spotlessly clean and very well presented. Would most definitely book again

  • "Just arrived back from a wonderful stay at Townend cottage and it did not disappoint."

    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.

  • "We found the cottage spacious and so near to the village."

    Just a short walk away and the off street parking was a bonus. The kitchen had all that was needed for just a week but there was a lack of kitchen utensils. The garden had two nice sitting out areas but the decaying hedge was a bit of an eyesore but we enjoyed our time at the cottage.

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.

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.
