Haworth and Oxenhope

Haworth and Oxenhope are our nearest local villages.

Haworth was the home of the famous Brontë sisters, and the parsonage where the family lived is now a fascinating museum that draws visitors from around the globe. The church and its atmospheric churchyard are also worth a visit. The village’s steep, cobbled main street has a range of small, specialist shops, as well as plenty of cafés, pubs and restaurants. At the bottom of the village is the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, which runs between the nearest town, Keighley, and the nearby village of Oxenhope.

Oxenhope, like Haworth, is set among dramatic hills and moors, and is based around a number of mills that thrived from Victorian times onwards. The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway terminates here, and the station has an Exhibition Shed for you to explore. The village itself gives access to some wonderful walks in the stunning Pennine countryside.
