Haworth Holiday Cottage is captivating. Perfect for Bronte fans, walkers, foodies, and lovers of spectacular scenery, the stone property is a short stroll from the famous Bronte Parsonage (now a museum) and St Michael and All Angels Church. It's in the middle of Haworth Main Street, steps from independent cafes, pubs, restaurants and charming shops and businesses that reflect the pride locals take in this beautiful part of Yorkshire. The two-bedroom Grade-II listed cottage sleeps four people with room for a travel cot. It is wonderfully welcoming, with guests loving the self-catering facilities, period charm and the little touches that make it feel so homely.
Haworth is known worldwide as the home of the Brontes and the inspiration for beloved books like Wuthering Heights, but it is far from a museum. It's a vibrant, picturesque place with a friendly community, excellent amenities, and lots to do in all seasons. Haworth Holiday Cottage, also known as "Number 66", is a village landmark featured in postcards and images of Haworth. It's exciting to feel like you're adding to its history just by staying there! We highly recommend walking along Main Street and onto the Yorkshire Moors or taking a trip on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, often featured in films such as "Yanks", "Jude", "Brideshead Revisited", "The Railway Children" and "The Railway Children Return". If you look carefully you will see Number 66 in The Railway Children Return and also in Sally Wainwright's drama "To walk Invisible", a film about the lives of the Bronte sisters. Yorkshire is renowned for the quality of its mountain bike trails and road cycling routes. Thankfully, it's also known for delicious food and generous portions - precisely what you need after a day's outdoor exploration.
The Spa Town of Harrogate is a short drive from Haworth and an excellent choice for shopping, sightseeing and a spot of tea at Betty's Tea Rooms. You're also within easy reach of RHS Harlow Carr, National Trust Hardcastle Crags and Brimham Rocks, Skipton, Saltaire, Hebden Bridge, and Ilkey. Haworth hosts annual weekends celebrating 1940s and 1960s music and culture. There's a Steampunk weekend every October, and the community goes all out for Christmas shopping in December.
Whatever your reason for staying at Haworth Holiday Cottage, and regardless of the time of year you are there, the enduring appeal of the village is a constant.
