    HAWORTH

    The small town of Haworth is like stepping back in time. With its cobbled streets, tea rooms, apothecaries and Railway Children-style train station. Haworth is a literary mecca and you can be there in 20 minutes – take the scenic drive from Holdsworth House to the Parsonage Museum where the three Bronte sisters wrote their novels including Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

    The Brontë Parsonage Museum in the centre of Haworth was the home to Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë and is now a famous museum.

    Holdsworth House is the perfect base for exploring Bronte Country. As a fine example of a ‘Halifax House’ Holdsworth House is typical of the 17th Century architecture unique to this area. One of the earliest properties built in this same style was High Sunderland, now sadly demolished – it is thought by many Bronte historians to be the inspiration for Wuthering Heights. Emily Bronte would certainly be aware of its presence, as it stood on the hill top across from Law Hill, where she worked in 1838.

    Bronte enthusiasts should also visit the Red House Museum at Gomersal near Bradford to learn more of Charlotte Bronte’s life. Red House is 11 miles from Holdsworth House, around half an hour by car. (Tickets to the Red House are not included in our Bronte Break).

    For walkers, THE BRONTE WAY is a 43 mile walking route which starts at Oakwell Hall near Birstall, Leeds and finishes at Gawthorpe Hall near Burnley in Lancashire. The Bronte Way takes in some of the famous Bronte-related sites from their real lives and fictional stories and was listed in the Top 50 Trips of a Lifetime by National Geographic Traveler.

    Terms and conditions: The Parsonage is open all year except 24-27 December and all of January. The break is for two adults in a House Double room including breakfast and two adult passes to the Bronte Parsonage Museum. Subject to availability.
