A perfect day in Haworth
Channel your inner Kate Bush with a hike on the moody moorlands surrounding Haworth (flowing red dress optional). Follow footpaths out of the village across wild and rocky terrain to pretty Brontë Waterfall and ruined farmhouse Top Withens, which is said to have inspired the gothic setting for Emily Brontë’s ‘Wuthering Heights’.
You can’t visit Haworth without setting foot inside the Brontë Parsonage Museum. Discover more about the contributions Charlotte, Emily and Anne made to literature via exhibitions inside their imposing former home. The atmospheric house is where the sisters penned their famous novels.
Ponden Mill is a Georgian cotton mill just outside Haworth. You can camp beside the River Worth or stay in the historic building, but for something more unusual, book Falling Water. It’s a little woodland retreat, built by owner Richard and inspired by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s stunning 1935 Pennsylvania house Fallingwater. The wooden cabin sits on a remote hillside beside a stream, which has been teased into a trickling waterfall. Beyond huge 1930s-style windows, you’ll find a copper log burner and a bed right next to the water. Talk about getting back to nature. Ellie Walker-Arnott.
