Haworth Hotels, Air BnB’s & Cottages For A Unique Stay In Brontë Country
Haworth sits on top of the south Pennine hills not too far from Bradford, and is known for it’s pretty old fashioned main street, it’s heritage railway line, and most prominently the Bronte sisters. Known as Bronte country thanks to the literary works of the three sisters, Haworth attracts many visitors wanting to explore both Haworth and the Yorkshire Moors. If you’re visiting Haworth for more than a day you’re going to need somewhere to stay, so here’s some of the Haworth hotels, Air BnB’s and cottages to book for a stay here.
Some of these are really unique, there’s even a glamping option which has been featured on Channel 4, as well as very central places from which you’d be able to explore the town on foot without needing a car. I found that Haworth was possibly one of the most dog friendly places I’ve ever been, so you can take them with you to stay in most of these Haworth hotels and accommodation too.
Haworth Pub Hotels
The pubs of Haworth date back many years, and have been Inns to visitors, travellers and guests for a very long time. They still welcome guests today, and these three are some of the most iconic to Haworth.
The Black Bull
Possibly the most iconic pub in Haworth as it often features in photos and paintings of Haworth, as it sits on the cobbles right at the top of Main Street. It dates back many many years, and was known as a local watering hole for Branwall Bronte. As well as being a pub it also has four double bedrooms, and has always been an Inn for travellers visiting the area. One of the bedrooms has an iconic view straight over Main Street. They offer bed and breakfast stays, but unfortunately this one isn’t dog friendly.

The Old White Lion
Over 300 years old, the Old White Lion has long been a coaching inn that welcomes guests to stay in Haworth. Also sitting on the top of the hill, and opposite the Bronte Parsonage Museum, the 14 bedrooms offer views across Haworth and over the moors. It may be old, but it has a lot of character and is rated at 4 stars. The food here is also said to be pretty special.

The Fleece Inn
The Fleece Inn is at the bottom of Haworth Main Street, but it still boasts impressive views over the area. It’s a beautiful, character filled 4 star hotel with impressive rooms that promise Yorkshire hospitality. Guests staying here also get 10% off the food in the bar too and a complimentary tasting tray of some of the award winning ales. The Fleece Inn are proud to serve a lot of locally sourced ingredients, and their en suite rooms are decorated using local tradesmen pieces too.

These two Haworth Guesthouses offer something a bit more than a room at the inn, as both are unique guest houses with lovely rooms to a high standard and independently run.
Weavers Guest House
This place looks so lovely, with six bedrooms of various sizes and sleeping arrangements, including king size sleigh beds, to twin single beds, and some can accommodate children and dogs too. They are an independently run guesthouse, rated 4 star and they actively encourage you to book with them directly for the best rates. You get a free bottle of wine if you do as well! If there is a group of you then they can cater for this, even to the extent of hiring the whole place.

Ashmount Country House
If you’re looking for a unique stay and a little more luxury from your Haworth Hotels then take a look at Ashmount Country House. It’s very boutique, and was once where the Bronte family doctor lived. Now they have ten rooms, all with something different about them and four of them even have hot tubs. They also have rooms with four poster beds, private outside spaces, and a 2 bedroom cottage if you want to be a bit more contained. They do accept dogs for some accommodation options, and you should expect to book for a minimum of 2 nights at weekends.

Air BnB’s & Cottages in Haworth
If the Haworth hotels aren’t for you and you prefer a more flexible, self contained accommodation then there are many of these available, and can be booked directly, through Air BnB or even Booking.com in some cases. When I visit Haworth one of the locals told me they have seen a huge increase in holiday homes in Haworth, so they’re a popular choice.
Wuthering Cottage, Haworth
Wuthering Cottage is a gorgeous, cosy little cottage just 10 minute walk from the centre of Haworth, and comes with a private parking space and a small garden. They do accept dogs here, and there are two bedrooms, a lovely fireplace, and has retained a lot of it’s stone features.
Wuthering Cottage is available to book via booking.com or Air BnB here.
Bronte Railway Cottage
Bronte Railway cottage is a cute little 2 bed cottage just a ten minute walk from Haworth centre. It has a private patio, sleeps 4 across a double and a twin bedroom, and they do accept dogs.
This one is available to book via Booking.com here.
This place is absolutely gorgeous, a terraced cottage on Haworth Main street you don’t get a better location than this. Everything is literally on your doorstep. Although it’s been renovated it has kept so much old charm including the log burner, original beams and stone. It has two bedrooms, all decorated in keeping with the country feel of the place.
Have a look at the photos of this one. It really is something. Book via Air BnB here or booking.com.
Oak Cottage, Haworth
Another lovely cottage in the centre of Haworth, although this one is opposite the railway station, so you might catch a glimpse of the old steam trains as they pass through. It sleeps six across three bedrooms so is slightly bigger, and it’s available to book via Air BnB.
If you’re looking for an Air BnB that’s a decorated more modern, but in an old Victorian house in Haworth then Bronte Nook is for you. It’s right in the centre of Haworth, so ideal for the bars, restaurants, and cafes. It has three bedrooms, one of which is a loft so could accommodate more than 2 adults easily.

The Dairy Cottage
This cottage is fabulous, so old fashioned and carefully put together by the owners, just 5 minutes from the centre of Haworth. The furnishings are incredible, and it has very low ceilings, a wood burner, and a free standing copper bath. It sleeps 2 adults but no children or pets are allowed here. There is private parking available. Just have a look at the photos if nothing else.
The Old Forge
The stunning Old Forge Cottage is right in the heart of Haworth, and sprawls over three floors along with a private patio. This stone built cottage is in an ideal location for exploring Haworth, and it’s decorated beautifully too with a lot of character to make best use of it’s features – including an outside staircase to the first floor.

Last but definitely not least is ‘Falling Water Cabin’, a glamping cabin built literally on a waterfall. It’s 2 miles from Haworth, but for a unique stay in a stunning spot not far away it’s another option to enjoy. It sleeps 2 adults, and no children or pets are allowed. It was even featured on Channel 4 Amazing Spaces program.

If there is one thing that the Haworth hotels, cottages and accommodation choices have in common it’s that they are all so unique and different from each other. Whether you prefer a traditional Inn right in the centre of Haworth, a unique self catered cottage, or a glamping choice all of them are ideal for exploring Haworth, the Yorkshire Moors and Bronte country.
