The Northern England / Yorkshire/Yorkshire Dales region
Royds Hall Farm is located in the village of Stanbury, at the head of the Worth Valley, overlooking the Ponden Resevoir and 1.3 miles from the historic village of Haworth. Stanbury is a traditional Yorkshire village and boasts 3 inns (The Old Silent Inn, The Friendly and The Wutherin) all within 3 minutes walk! Venturing beyond the village many public footpaths lead onto the surrounding countryside including Haworth Moor, Oxenhope and back to Haworth.
There is plenty of scope for rambling, with the most famous route being to the picturesque Bronte Falls, the Bronte Bridge and the Bronte Stone Chair in which (it is said) the sisters took turns to sit and write their first stories. Also locally is the Bronte Way, (40-miles in total) which takes in Top Withens, an historic ruin which was is reputed to be the setting for Heathcliff's farmstead in Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights". Royds Hall Farm is only a 1.5 mile walk from Top Withens and Ponden Hall (which is believed to be the house called Thrushcross Grange in "Wuthering Heights") and Griffe Mill (now ruined) are both within a mile of your door. Ponden Resevoir has a watersports centre offering sailing and canoeing.
Haworth is a major local attraction, most notable for its internationally famous literary connection with the Bronte Sisters, who were born in Thornton (near Bradford) and who wrote most of their famous works while living at the Haworth Parsonage (now a museum owned and maintained by the Bronte Society), whilst their father served as parson at Haworth Church. Haworth retains the wonderful atmosphere of an 19th century yorkshire village whilst offering an excellent selection of tea rooms, souvenir and antique bookshops, restaurants and inns.
Other local attractions include the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic working steam railway which has been used as a setting for numerous period films and TV series, including The Railway Children (starring Jenny Agutter). Every year the village also hosts a very special 1940s weekend where locals and visitors alike don 1940s era attire for a host of nostalgic events and a historic fly past of a Spitfire and a Hurricane.
The historic town of Skipton, with its weekly farmers market, has its own 14th century castle is a very popular visitor attraction and is only a 25 minute drive from Royds Hall Farm. Skipton lies on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is the gateway to visiting the picturesque Dales towns of Settle, Ingleborough, Hawes and Kirby Lonsdale.
Stanbury is an ideal base for exploring the principal attractions of Bronte Country and the Yorkshire Dales while still being close to the major cities of Bradford and Leeds. The spa towns of Harrogate and Ilkley are all within easy reach and further afield the historic city of York, with its magnificent cathedral and nationally famous railway museum, is a very popular destination.
The Haworth area
Royds Hall Farm is situated in open countryside, a very short distance from the village of Haworth, well known for its connections with the Bronte family. Haworth's steep main street, paved with stone setts is lined with historic buildings, inns, shops, galleries ans cafes, leading down to the Worth Valley Steam Railway. A short drive into nearby Keighley and you can ride on the world famous Keighley & Woth Valley Steam Railway, a delightfully restored five mile branch line from its start travelling back to Oxenhope and Haworth.

Royds Hall Farm Cottage is a perfect gem of a traditional farmhouse on the outside, with a spacious, airy and spotless interior, with all mod cons and every comfort. The property is extremely well equipped, and the owners clearly have gone to great effort to ensure you'll have everything you need for a comfortable and stress-free break. The views across the valley and to Ponden reservoir are breathtaking (it must be the most scenic view from any bathtub I've ever known!) My 3 year old adored the nearby horses and the freedom the garden offered. There is much to do locally (Keighley and Worth Valley railway, East Riddlesden Hall and the Hockney gallery at Saltaire being favourites) but the greatest highlight would have to be the fact you can stroll out of your backdoor and up and over the moors. We got engaged at Bronte falls and it could not have been a more perfect or memorable setting. Royds Hall Farm cottage will no doubt be first choice for honeymoon!
