A house brimming with warmth and atmosphere, and said to be the inspiration for Wuthering Heights. Julie and Steve’s knowledge of the history is impressive and they offer tours of their fascinating home. Arrive for tea and home-baked cake and soak up the mullion windows, huge flagstones, period pieces and original paintings. Bedrooms have just the right balance of luxury and individuality: an amazing box bed, rocking horse, raftered ceilings – and cosy log stoves in two. A full Yorkshire breakfast is served in the magnificent main hall. Walk the Pennine Way, hop on a steam train at Keighley; Haworth is close too – for all things Brontë and independent shops.
