**Welcome to Wisteria Cottage**:
Our beautifully restored, stone-built Victorian cottage is perfectly situated close to the historic cobbled main street of Haworth, in the heart of Bronte Country. The cottage offers a wonderful base for families, friends and couples looking to explore the village’s charming independent shops, pubs and restaurants as well as venture out into the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
The cottage is a short walk to the rugged ‘Wuthering Heights’ moors, which inspired the English literary Bronte sisters, with commanding views from Top Withens. Just around the corner is the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children.
If you like to venture further afield, it is a short drive to the market town of Skipton with it’s medieval castle and Harrogate spa town with RHS Harlow Carr and the famous Betty’s Tea Rooms.
