This fabulous, stone-built terraced cottage is home to a wonderful mix of unique character and charm. Set over three floors, the bedroom has an impressive beamed ceiling and feature fireplace with a decorative wood burner. The cosy living room, on the middle floor, has original stone stairs leading to each level, and also benefits from a good-sized wood burner. Finally the kitchen has a superb stone arched ceiling, a glass floor viewpoint into the old well below, and leads to an enclosed courtyard perfect for summer evenings, and can contain pets of all shapes and sizes.
Set on a cobbled street in the village of Haworth, just a few yards from the main high street, with a whole host of amenities right on the doorstep, including traditional pubs, restaurants and cafés. Formerly home to the Bronte sisters, Haworth is steeped in literary history, with the Bronte Parsonage Museum a mere 5-minute walk from the property. Top Withens is around a 10-minute drive, and it’s here you can find the lonely farm which is thought to have inspired Emily Bronte for Wuthering Heights. The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway is also just 5 minutes from Bay Cottage, and recognisable as the backdrop from the children’s favourite ’The Railway Children’. From here you can jump aboard and travel to Edwardian Oakworth station, or explore by foot one of the Railway Children Walks. The National Trust’s East Riddlesden Hall, is around 20 minutes away and is described as ’a little oasis in a busy urban area’. Skipton, with its cobbled streets and delightful castle, can be reached in around half an hour and provides the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Shop ¾ mile, pub and restaurant 165 yards.

About the local area

Anne, Charlotte and Emily Bronte wrote some of the most famous novels in the English language. Today, the moors and hills that inspired The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights draw many seeking to explore the dramatic landscape of Bronte Country and the South Pennine hills.

This is perfect walking country, whether you prefer a planned route to see the sights or a slow wander in the hope of discovering unexpected treasures.

You can visit the ruined farmhouse of Top Withens, on which Emily based the Earnshaw home of Wuthering Heights and the Bronte Waterfalls, a place the sisters visited often for peace, reflection and creative inspiration.

The moors are also home to a number of fascinating towns and villages. Haworth is a favourite and the house in which the Bronte family lived is now the Bronte Parsonage Museum.

The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway runs through Bronte country from bustling Keighley to the village of Oxenhope. There's a stop at Haworth and another at Oakworth, the station used for filming the classic movie, The Railway Children.

Bronte Country is much more than a day-trip and there's no better way to steep yourself in this ancient land of mystery and romance than to stay in a solid moorland cottage.

Whether you prefer a town location or a more remote and rural spot, it's great to know that a day on the moors is guaranteed to end in a hot meal, a relaxing bath and a comfy bed.
