Description

Set on the outskirts of the town of Keighley with views over fields to the moors beyond, this Victorian, double-fronted house has been lovingly restored and provides light, spacious accommodation with attention to detail in all aspects for guests comfort. In the living room there is a lovely cushion-lined window seat with views over the fields, an ideal spot to sit, read and while away the hours. The spacious basement provides ideal space for storing bicycles and walking gear.

Glenfield is just 4 miles from the pretty cobbled high street of Haworth, with the Worth Valley Steam trains running from Keighley to Howarth. Here you can visit the Brontë Parsonage Museum, walk on Top Withens, which must be Wuthering Heights, or browse through the shops, tea rooms, restaurants or pubs. The National Trust property Riddlesden Hall is a short drive away.

The beauty spot of Bolton Abbey, with the meandering Rivier Wharfe, and the upmarket towns of Ilkley and Harrogate, with both high street and high end shopping, are within easy driving distance, and afternoon tea at Betty’s in Ilkley is a must. For keen walkers and cyclists, this is Tour De France country, Tour De Yorkshire and the moors above Haworth and the Yorkshire Dales are easily accessed. For a completely alternative day out, visit the historic city of York, which is about 1¼ hours drive. Bingley St Ives golf course is 1½ miles away. Shop and pub ½ mile, restaurant 1 mile.

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.
