Haworth, in the heart of Bronte country, sits in the west of the county of Yorkshire.
Haworth is world-famous for being the home of the Bronte sisters, but there's much to more to see, explore and do. Right on our doorstep is the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway where visitors can hop aboard one of the best steam railways in the world. It was made famous for its part in the Railway Children and several TV shows and films since.
Cobble Cottage is within easy reach of many fantastic walks – from the leisurely to the more challenging – Top Withens (Wuthering Heights) been approx 1 1/2 hrs walk away over stunning countryside. It is, of course a great place for cycling with the Tour de France 2014 having passed through in July 2014,
Just up the road is the market town of Skipton - gateway to the Yorkshire Dales surrounded by amazing countryside with no shortage of things to do or see.
Bronte Country of West Yorkshire is surprisingly wild and remote yet is accessible to Manchester and the other major cities of the North for a short break.
The cobbled street leads up to the Parish Church and Parsonage where the Bronte family lived. The cottage which is on this Main Street is a central part of the community of the street which is mainly a street for pedestrians.
The Yorkshire climate can be dramatically climatic but also surprisingly warm and sunny. The surrounding moors and hills provide wonderful views and vistas. The Worth Valley Steam Railway, featured in the Railway Children, with shunting sheds and Victorian Station is a few hundred yards from the cottage.
The street is filled with wonderful cafes, art and craft shops, traditional Yorkshire pubs and curiosity shops.
The parish church is beautifully preserved with the burial places of most of the Bronte family inside and a huge overgrown Victorian graveyard around it. The famous Bronte Parsonage and museum are part of the village
