This Yorkshire Village With A Famous Past Has Been Named One Of The Best UK Holiday Spots

The South Pennine village of Haworth was named one of the best holiday spots by HomeToGo. UK holidays are just as popular, and this idyllic village with huge literary connections is the perfect weekend away.

The moorland surrounding the village is littered with enchanting purple heather reminiscent of Wuthering Heights. Home to the likes of the Brontë sisters, the area has provided an inspirational backdrop to Charlotte, Emily and Anne – who are still associated with the small Yorkshire village.

 Most notable works include Charlotte’s Jane Eyre, as well as the aforementioned Emily’s Wuthering Heights – the latter of which was inspired by and set in the West Yorkshire moors. You can visit the Bronte Parsonage Museum to learn more about the famous sisters whilst you are in town.

The village surrounded by rolling moors has a vintage charm with its cobbled streets, quaint pubs and vintage sweetshops. You could spend hours wandering the charming streets getting lost.

You can head out to the ruined farmhouse near Haworth, West Yorkshire, which is said to have been the inspiration for Wuthering Heights, the novel by Emily Brontë.

Why not visit the 150 years old railway, Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, which is a 5 mile preserved standard gauge railway running from Keighley to Oxenhope that you may remember from the famous children’s film, The Railway Children.
