Holiday Cottage in Haworth (‘Brontë Country’), Yorkshire Dales
Our beautifully restored, stone-built Victorian cottage is perfectly situated close to the historic cobbled main street of Haworth, in the heart of ‘Brontë Country’. The cottage offers a wonderful base for guests looking to explore the village’s charming independent shops, pubs and restaurants as well as venture out into the picturesque Yorkshire Dales.
It is a short walk to the rugged ‘Wuthering Heights’ moors, which inspired the English literary Brontë sisters, with commanding views from Top Withens. Just around the corner is the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children.
You will find Haworth Main Street within a 4 minute walk with the Brontë Parsonage Museum, Haworth Church and some wonderful shops and eateries. There are many attractions and wonderful places to visit in the local area. For the active, there are lots of breathtakingly beautiful walks and cycle routes right from the door of the cottage.
Haworth hosts many themed events throughout the year. The 1940’s weekend in May is extremely popular and transports you back to 1940’s wartime, complete with the outfits, music and vehicles from the time. Haworth also hosts the 1960’s weekend in June and ‘Steampunk and ‘Hawortheen’ in October. Haworth’s Victorian Christmas really gets you into the Dickensian Christmas spirit with events including ‘Scroggling the Holly’ and the ‘Torchlight Procession’. The ‘Santa Special’ at Keighley and Worth Valley Railway is also much loved by families.
The Yorkshire Dales National Park is just a 20 minute drive to the north. The market town of Skipton, named “The Gateway To The Dales”, is a true gem with Skipton Castle and many interesting shops. Bolton Abbey is picturesque and only a short drive. You can also enjoy a visit to Ilkley, Halifax, Saltaire, Hebden Bridge and a little further afield are Harrogate and York.
