    Discover enchanting Bronte country in Halifax

    Surrounded by rolling moorlands and historic market towns, Halifax is an enchanting introduction to West Yorkshire. Made famous by the Bronte sisters, this idyllic slice of England feels worlds away from the buzz of neighboring cities like Leeds, Manchester, and Sheffield. As well as working your way through its historic downtown core, Halifax also serves as a jumping point for exploring beautiful Bronte country. Whether you’re enjoying a family vacation a romantic escape, or a weekend bachelorette party, Halifax vacation rentals are the perfect base for your West Yorkshire vacation.

    Walk in the footsteps of the Bronte sisters

    Lined with leafy trees, cobblestoned Corn Market and Southgate serve as Halifax’s main high streets. From browsing its specialty stores to enjoying an afternoon coffee, the strip is a great place for a stroll. If you’re a Bronte fan, Halifax will have you captivated. Nearby Thornton is home to the Bronte birthplace where Charlotte, Emily, and Anne were born. You can also tour magnificent Oakwell Hall (the Elizabethan manor house immortalized as Fieldhead in Charlotte’s novel, Shirley), stroll around Wycoller Hall (made famous as Ferndean Manor in Jane Eyre), and visit a string of other iconic estates.

    Discover Victorian history in heritage-listed Halifax

    Now a Grade II-listed heritage building, Halifax Borough Market is one of the town’s finest Victorian buildings. Today it houses almost 200 stalls where you can pick up everything from artisanal cheese to local handicrafts. From characterful stone farmhouses to grand country manors, Halifax vacation rentals give you a chance to live and breathe the town’s history. You can find out more about Halifax’s heritage at the Calderdale Industrial Museum, while Eureka! The National Children's Museum is a firm favorite with families.

    Rug up in snow-dusted Halifax

    Halifax is at its best in the summer, when the moorlands are drenched in sunshine. If meandering through the moorlands is on your wish list, spring and early fall bring beautiful walking weather. While the warmer months are perfect for sightseeing, they’re not the only time to visit. In winter, West Yorkshire is blanketed in snow, which creates a magical atmosphere. From visiting National Trust historic sites to working your way through Bronte attractions, you’ll never be short on indoor activities.

    Moorland meanders in the Halifax countryside

    Tucked away in the south Pennines, Halifax is one of West Yorkshire’s most enchanting market towns. It falls within England’s picturesque Bronte country, made famous by the 3 sisters who penned literary masterpieces including Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Halifax vacation rentals make the most of the setting, with beautiful country properties surrounded by rolling fields, grassy moorlands, and winding country lanes. The moorlands are laced with scenic walking trails that mean you can quite literally walk in the footsteps of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne.
