About the hotel

Established in 1987, we are a friendly family owned guest house. Situated at the top of the famous cobbled Haworth Main Street opposite the Bronte church. We are two minutes walk from the Bronte Parsonage and the famous Yorkshire Moors.

The Worth Valley steam railway is just a 10 minute walk away. Ample parking is available outside the guest house or close by. Rooms to the rear of the building have panoramic views of the surrounding moors, whilst those at the front overlook Haworth's famous Main street. Built around 1640 you will delight in it's quaintness, the oak beams, intricate passageways and millstone grit exterior. Our breakfast rooms has the best views in the village. The Apothecary has had many uses in the past 400 years, including an inn, the Co-Op (see pulley wheel at the top of the building) private dwelling and a book shop. One can only wonder at the lives and dramas played out over the years.

Friendly host doesn't make up for the noise levels experienced

As virtually every other review has stated, David is an excellent host with such a warm, inviting character.

Nothing was too much trouble, for example ordering us a taxi, showing us the best place to eat etc. It is a shame that the rest of my review cannot be this positive because David really is a passionate owner. However, a hotel stay is about much more than this, in my opinion, and the room we had (room 8) really affected the hotel experience. The room was directly off the tea rooms, open during the day, on the ground floor and with a window overlooking the church. It was necessary to pull the blind down to avoid being in endless tourist photos, which isn't what you want in a town as picturesque as Haworth. We stayed two nights and were woken both mornings before 6.30am, with the noise of breakfast being prepared and on one morning with the arrival of the post and the conversation that ensued between David and the postman. This is not when you want to be woken up (especially following a bit of a late night the previous day!) so I would not recommend this hotel - in this room anyway - for this reason. Food was average, the 'veggie alternative' breakfast being simply no bacon or sausage (!) although service was very good.

In addition, the room seemed very tired - stained carpet and bedding, very lumpy beds and pillows and peeling/chipped paint in many areas. I've stayed in youth hostels with a similar vibe.

Haworth itself is beautiful, with a selection of lovely shops on the picturesque high street overlooking the Dales, and the main tourist attraction of the Bronte Parsonage Museum, well worth a visit. There are many other b+bs which I would use instead on a return visit.
