The Local Area
Our cottages are in the heart of the historic and attractive village of Haworth, West Yorkshire. The area is often called Bronte Country because of its association with the Bronte authors – Emily Bronte, Charlotte Bronte and Anne Bronte. The family moved to the Haworth Parsonage in 1820, which is now the Bronte Parsonage Museum. Haworth Main Street retains many original features including a cobbled Main Street lined with stone cottages. Many are converted to independent shops, cafes and restaurants. There are several pubs in the village including the Black Bull which Branwell Bronte is reputed to have frequented on a regular basis. Haworth also has it’s own micro brewery Haworth Steam Brewery located on the Main Street.
Haworth hosts themed weekends throughout the year, including the hugely popular 1940’s weekend, 1960’s weekend, Steampunk weekend, Scroggling the Holly and the Torchlight Procession.
Haworth also provides an excellent base for exploring both the Bradford, Leeds and Harrogate areas, which boast a wide variety of museums, galleries, and shopping centres. With the Yorkshire Dales National Park less than a 20 minute drive away, you can soon be in rolling countryside.
