About Haworth and the Local Area

Mulberry Cottage sits at the heart of the historic village of Haworth in West Yorkshire. Known as Brontë Country, the area is steeped in the literary legacy of the Brontë authors – Emily, Charlotte, and Anne. The family moved to the Haworth Parsonage in 1820, which is now the Brontë Parsonage Museum.  Haworth’s Main Street exudes charm with its cobbled street, flanked by stone cottages and Victorian lamps.

Main Street is a hub of activity, having many excellent independent shops, cafes and restaurants. The village also has several great pubs, including the Black Bull, reputedly frequented by Branwell Brontë. Haworth Main Street is also home to the Haworth Steam Brewery, the village’s microbrewery.

Throughout the year, Haworth hosts themed weekends, including the popular 1940s, 1960s, and Steampunk events, along with traditional Christmas celebrations such as Scroggling the Holly, Nativity and the Torchlight Procession.

Haworth also provides an excellent base for exploring both the Bradford, Leeds and Harrogate areas, which boast a wide variety of museums, galleries, and shopping centres. The Yorkshire Dales National Park, just a short drive away, beckons with its scenic landscapes, providing ample opportunity for outdoor adventures.
