Chapel View cottage is in the heart of Haworth, the nerve centre of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway and is just two minutes walk from the Main Street and railway station. This heritage village, with its cobbled streets and independent shops, is on the outside edge of Yorkshire's industrial West Riding, a short drive to Skipton “The Gateway to The Yorkshire Dales”, a perfect base for exploring the area. The rugged surrounding moorland inspired the talented Brontë family, who wrote their much-loved novels at the parsonage (now a museum) near to Chapel View Cottage. Also nearby is “Haworth Old Hall” a recommended pub/restaurant dating back to c1580 & there are many other character pubs & cafes. A myriad of local walks criss-cross the surrounding landscape. A well-behaved dog will love the open moorland and is welcome to share a holiday at Chapel View.

In addition to the Keighley Worth Valley Railway, there is lots more to interest the rail buff, with the Embsay to Bolton Abbey line in neighbouring Wharfedale, in Leeds the historic Middleton Railway, the Kirklees Light Railway and of course, the National Railway Museum in York. At nearby Bradford, there's free admission to both the National Media Museum and the Bradford Industrial Museum.

Location description from owner

The West Yorkshire region


The culture of the people of Yorkshire is an accumulated product of a number of different civilisations who have directly controlled its history, including; the Celts (Brigantes and Parisii), Romans, Angles, Norse Vikings and Normans amongst others. The people of Yorkshire are immensely proud of their county and local culture and it is sometimes suggested they identify more strongly with their county than they do with their country. Yorkshire people have their own Yorkshire dialects and accents and are, or rather were, known as Tykes. Though distinct accents remain, dialects are no longer in everyday use. Some have argued the dialect was a fully fledged language in its own right. The county has also produced a unique set of Yorkshire colloquialisms, which are in use in the county. Among Yorkshire's unique traditions is the Long Sword dance, a traditional dance not found elsewhere in England. The most famous traditional song of Yorkshire is On Ilkla Moor Baht 'at ("On Ilkley Moor without a hat"), and is often considered the unofficial anthem of the county.



Architecture

Throughout Yorkshire many castles were built during the Norman-Breton period, particularly after the Harrying of the North. These included Bowes Castle, Pickering Castle, Richmond Castle, Skipton Castle, York Castle and others. Later medieval castles at Helmsley, Middleham and Scarborough were built as a means of defence against the invading Scots. Middleham is notable because Richard III of England spent his childhood there. The remains of these castles, some being English Heritage sites, are popular tourist destinations. There are several stately homes in Yorkshire which carry the name "castle" in their title, even though they are more akin to a palace. The most notable examples are Allerton Castle and Castle Howard, both linked to the Howard family. Castle Howard and the Earl of Harewood's residence, Harewood House, are included amongst the Treasure Houses of England, a group of nine English stately homes.
There are numerous other Grade I listed buildings within the historic county including public buildings such as Leeds Town Hall, Sheffield Town Hall, Ormesby Hall, the Yorkshire Museum and Guildhall at York. Large estates with significant buildings were constructed at Brodsworth Hall, Temple Newsam and Wentworth Castle. In addition to this there are properties which are conserved and managed by the National Trust, such as Nunnington Hall, the Rievaulx Terrace & Temples and Studley Royal Park. Religious architecture includes extant cathedrals as well as the ruins of monasteries and abbeys. Many of these prominent buildings suffered from the Dissolution of the Monasteries under Henry VIII; these include Bolton Abbey, Fountains Abbey, Gisborough Priory, Rievaulx Abbey, St Mary's Abbey and Whitby Abbey among others. Notable religious buildings of historic origin still in use include York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral in northern Europe, Beverley Minster, Bradford Cathedral and Ripon Cathedral.

Literature and art

The most esteemed literary family from the county are the three Brontë sisters, with part of the county around Haworth being nicknamed Brontë Country. Their novels, written in the mid-19th century, caused a sensation when they were first published, yet were subsequently accepted into the halls of great English literature. Among the most celebrated novels written by the sisters are Anne Brontë's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre and Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights. Wuthering Heights was almost a source used to depict life in Yorkshire, illustrating the type of people that reside there in its characters, and emphasising the use of the changeable Yorkshire moors weather. Nowadays, the parsonage which was their former home is now a museum in their honour.
Bram Stoker authored Dracula while living in Whitby and it includes several elements of local folklore including the beaching of the Russian ship Dmitri, which became the basis of Demeter in the book.
The novelist tradition in Yorkshire continued into the 20th century, with authors such as J. B. Priestley, Alan Bennett, Dame Margaret Drabble, A S Byatt, and Barbara Taylor Bradford being prominent examples. Taylor Bradford is noted for “A Woman of Substance” which was one of the top-ten bestselling novels in history. Another well-known author was children's writer Arthur Ransome, who penned the Swallows and Amazons series. James Herriot, the bestselling author of over 60 million copies of books about his experiences of some 50 years as a veterinarian in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, the town which he refers to as Darrowby in his books Poets include Ted Hughes, W. H. Auden, William Empson, Simon Armitage and Andrew Marvell. Three well known sculptors emerged in the 20th century; contemporaries Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, and Leeds-raised eco artist Andy Goldsworthy. Some of their works are available for public viewing at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. There are several art galleries in Yorkshire featuring extensive collections, such as Ferens Art Gallery, Leeds Art Gallery, Millennium Galleries and York Art Gallery. Some of the better known local painters are William Etty and David Hockney many works by the latter are housed at Salts Mill 1853 Gallery in Saltaire.

Haworth

Haworth is a fantastic centre to either relax in or explore from, many people come to Chapel View Cottage spend their time following the footsteps of countless visitors on the trail of the Bronte family or making great use of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway which passes right through the village. Steeped in history and steep tracks and streets mean that there's a good chance you'll shed a few pounds whilst enjoying one of the best areas of Britain to take a holiday.

Try a visit to Skipton with its Castle built in 1090 by Robert de Romille, a Norman baron and experience the fabulous market with fresh, local produce as well as locally made products such as walking sticks and outdoor attire, pottery and art.

Or if you fancy something different, a trip to Saltaire - a model village built by Sir Titus Salt c1853 which in its day provided its inhabitants with decent places to live and work along with health care way before the NHS came into being.

If you fancy a little bit of city life, a short train journey to Leeds can provide you with all you might want in the way of shopping, multi-cultural cuisine and theatre and cinema. Leeds boasts lots of up market shops including the world famous Harvey Nichols. Or to Bradford for the Industrial museum or the National Media Museum.

Whatever you fancy, Haworth is a great base and its great public transport links provide an excellent way to see the sights without having the burden of a car

In May, the village plays host to a 1940's weekend with locals and visitors as well as exhibitors dressed in ww2 clothing. Music, food, dancing, stalls etc all create a colourful and interesting attraction.

At Christmas time the Main Street of Haworth is full with Christmas Carol evenings, festive walks and general merriment - a fabulous experience for young and old!

Whatever the time of year throughout the Worth valley there's always a buzz of people enthusiastically enjoying their time in Haworth.

“Perfect in spite of the weather”

Reviewed 24 Nov 2015

Stayed at chapel view for one week the weather was dreadful but the cottage was lovely, everything you could possibly need was there, so nice to relax in front of the log fire with the rain beating down outside just a perfect chilling break exactly what we needed to recharge our batteries. Bookshelves a nice touch with a really good selection of books which was great as my charger broke on my nook. excellent kitchen and a nice comfy king size bed. Howarth itself is really quaint and looked lovely all decorated for Christmas. Laurence very helpful would more than recommend this lovely place to anyone :)

Thank you Donna for your lovely feedback, hopefully you'll come again and the sun will come along too. Great to know the cottage ticks all the boxes when you're confined to barracks as well as when you can get out and about. Regards Laurence & Ruth

“Wonderful cottage”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2015

Really enjoyed our week at this wonderfully restored cottage. The history of the refurbishment was a wonderful informative read, highly recommend the Old Registry for that special meal during your stay.

Thank you for your kind words, they're much appreciated. We hope you'll come to stay again sometime in the not too distant future. Regards, Laurence & Ruth

“Great cottage in a great location.”

Reviewed 31 May 2014

High specification cottage located one minute from the terrific Main Street of Haworth, and twenty minutes walk from the Bronte moors.

Thanks very much for your feedback, we hope you've recovered now from cycling up and down our Yorkshire hills. Thanks for staying at Chapel View and we hope to see you again sometime. Regards, Laurence & Ruth

“Brilliant location”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2013

Very pretty cottage in a great location. Only minutes from Main Street in Haworth. All of the local shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep. Parsonage museum also within walking distance, as well as a very helpful tourist information centre. Lovely walk to Bronte Waterfall and High Withins straight from village. Only had a weekend spare but could easily have spent much longer in the cottage as so much to do in the near vicinity..Cottage has everything you could need, even if 3 floors takes a little getting used to! The owners Laurence and Ruth very helpful.

Thanks for the lovely feedback Janice and Kenny, it's a shame you could only manage a short break as the village and surrounding area have so much to offer. Hopefully when you return you'll get more time to explore too. Cheers Laurence & Ruth

“Superb cottage, furnished just like home, exudes quality”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2013

We stayed at Chapel view cottage for a week, wished it could have been a permanent stay, it was such a quality place, so relaxing, with everything done to such a high standard. If only all rental holiday lets were done to this standard. I think I can say without doubt, it is the nicest place I have stayed in, in 25 years of holidaying in yorkshire. A real credit to its owners and the pride they take is abundantly clear. Will be back soon, thats for sure.

Thanks for the lovely feedback, it's great to hear that Chapel View Cottage ticked all the boxes for you; helping make your holiday one to remember for all the right reasons. We believe the standard should be set high and it's always satisfying when our guests want to return, see you soon. Cheers, Laurence & Ruth

“What an Awesome little Cottage...”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2013

We have just spent a fantastic week at Chapel View Cottage. It is without doubt one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. It is on 3 levels and has everything you can possibly need . The house has had a brilliant renovation and is in a superb location in the village, the main street is only 50 yards away. I cant recommended Chapel View enough. We will certainly be coming back for another visit. Thanks for a great week in a great cottage.

Thank you for your lovely feedback we aim to please, our geusts comfort and enjoyment of Chapel View Cottage is our primary concern, the cottage was restored as a long-term venture rather than a dash of paint and guests like yourselves consistently appreciate the homely feel that gives. Many thanks and we hope to see you again soon. Laurence & Ruth

“Beautiful cottage in the heart if Bronte country.”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2013

This cottage is a great base for exploring the beautiful world of the Brontes. The cottage has been lovingly restored and the kitchen is kitted out very well. The lounge is cosy and the bathroom clean and has been done to a high standard. The only slight downside is that the bedroom is not as well appointed as the rest if the cottage. It is perfectly cost for a couple looking for a peaceful break. We have already booked to go back, so I guess that's the best review we could give

Thank you for your feedback Chapel View Cottage has consistently ticked the boxes for cosiness and accessibility to Haworth and the surrounding region. We're so pleased you're coming back; as you say the best kind of review you could have given. Thanks again, see you soon Laurence & Ruth

“Excellent cottage in beautiful part of the country”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2013

One of the best cottages we've stayed in - beautifully set out and extremely clean. The owners were very thoughtful, approachable and helpful. We took our Hearing Dog - and though there is only a yard not a garden, the park is very near and convenient. And Haworth is such a lovely place.

Thanks for the great feedback, Haworth is such a great destination for walkers and their dogs too. Apart from the moors, valleys and local Bronte & Railway walks. As you say because central park is a large open space approximately 100 metres from Chapel View it's great for that early morning stretch with your four legged friend. Thanks again, Laurence & Ruth

“WOW - fantastic location and beautiful cottage”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

This cottage has been converted to a very high spec and it was very comfortable. We could not believe our luck in the situation of the cottage, just at the end of Haworth High Street and so close to the North Yorkshire Railway Station. Fantastic location for visiting Bradford, Leeds and York. This part of yorkshire offers so much that we did not have enough time to do everything and will be back. Hopefully booking this cottage.

Thanks very much for your positive feedback we're so pleased when guests have had a chance to explore the fabulous county of Yorkshire. Best regards Laurence & Ruth.
