Come Home Cottage is a lovingly-restored stone-built Grade II listed building located just a few minutes walk from Haworth's famous cobbled Main Street and the Bronte Parsonage Museum. The cottage, dating from the 1860s is newly-refurbished and became available on 1 July 2015. Situated on a quiet cobbled street just off Main Street, Come Home Cottage is an ideal retreat for two. We understand that the house was formerly two dwellings for mill workers (one family downstairs , one family upstairs) now converted into a single spacious house. The first-floor living room has a large fireplace with a wood burner, original stone-flagged floors and beamed ceilings. There are two very comfortable sofas for complete rest and relaxation, with a TV, DVD player, Ipod dock and radio. The property has BT broadband. The modern basement kitchen is newly-fitted and fully-equipped and has a comfortable seating area with wall-mounted TV and retains its original cooking range installed in 1864 as a feature. There is a small utility room off the kitchen with washing machine and clothes drier. There is one double bedroom with double bed and a spacious bathroom on the second floor. The light and airy bathroom is newly-fitted with a large bath and a modern monsoon-style shower. Parking is on the street directly in front of the house and a permit will be supplied for display.
I am originally from Newcastle-upon Tyne, which is where I was born and where I grew up in a family with a coal mining background. My great passion since childhood has always been books and Wuthering Heights in particular. That's what drew me to Haworth. I love the atmosphere of the village and the amazing beauty of the moors. I bought Come Home Cottage in 2014 and it took a year to restore it to its former glory. I hope to spend some time there myself and I hope it lures my two sons up to Yorkshire from London occasionally. Although I have a full-time teaching job my hobby is my little literary-themed gift shop on Main Street and designing and sourcing gifts for other book lovers is my current weekend activity.
Catherine Mason purchased this house in 2014
Come Home Cottage has been a labour of love. We knew as soon as we saw the house and its location that it would be a very special place for a holiday and we knew it has to retain its original features from the 1860s whilst offering every home comfort. The name 'Come Home Cottage' was chosen by my dad, who thought of the Kate Bush song (I'm Cathy, I've Come Home) when I mentioned Wuthering Heights to him! The house is just a few minutes from the moors and the house called 'Top Withins' that inspired the book, so that seemed just right. (We're also huge Kate Bush fans so no problem there). We love this house and we hope you will too.
The house is ideally located for any visitor to Haworth and is very pleasing to anyone looking for traditional Yorkshire features such as a stone-flagged floor or wooden ceiling beams. It has a lovely wide windowsill to sit in with a coffee and watch local life going by, which ranges from horses clopping by on the cobbles to the occasional film unit working on a book adaptation. The best feature of this house is how relaxed it makes you feel as soon as you arrive.
Come Home cottage was far more than we expected. It has been beautifully done and the website doesn't really do it full justice. It's comfortable and spacious and the large kitchen/diner/ sitting room is a little below Street level and enjoys the same footprint as the living room up above. (Also has a large fridge freezer & washer/dryer which is in the small utility room). The central heating was set to constant making it cosy on the coldest of days & always had plenty of hot water on tap. Also a lovely large bathroom with walk in shower & separate bathroom. It is literally a 2 minute walk to Haworth Main Street, it couldn't have been more convenient. The cottage was a little more expensive than we would usually pay for a 6 night stay, but from when I first opened the cottage door I could see why. Highly recommend.
Beautiful cottage with everything you could need. Location perfect for exploring Haworth. Surrounding countryside stunning. Will definitely visit again.
The cottage looks great from the photographs but in actual fact, the levels are raised once inside. A fantastic job has been done on the interior and is remarkably more spacious than appears from the outside. It's like walking into the TARDIS.
Everything you would need is there and we loved the shower which again, as with the bathroom was large and immaculately designed. The kitchen/dining room, is also very spacious and is equipped with everything you could need during your stay. The cottage is very well positioned at the top of the hill with pubs, shops and restaurants all within easy reach. The residents parking permit was much appreciated and we managed to park directly outside the property on arrival and didn't move it again until our journey home!
We would recommend to anyone thinking of exploring Haworth, to give Come Home Cottage a look, you won't be disappointed!
We spent a lovely few days in this gorgeous cottage. The accommodation is spacious and this old cottage has been updated and decorated to a very high standard. There are lots of original features but also all the modern conveniences you might need. The cottage is well located in the centre of the village with lots of interesting things to see and do in the nearby area. Pam, the owner, very kindly left us a generous welcome pack which was very much appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Come Home cottage and Yorkshire is amazing. The cottage had everything we needed. It has been refurbished to a high standard and was very cosy and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed, the bed was comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean.
The location of the cottage is fantastic for exploring Haworth and the surrounding areas. We especially enjoyed the Bronte museum (went twice) and the walk to Top Withens. We didn't eat out much but had a fantastic cream tea at The Stirrup. Bolton Abbey is a must.
Catherine the owner gave brilliant customer service and we would most definitely recommend the cottage, and hope to return one day.
We've just spent a lovely week at this cottage and I have to say, it was superb. The rooms were light and spacious, the facilities excellent, and the ambience peaceful.
The cottage is situated at the top of Main Street close to the restaurants and pubs of Haworth. A minute or two stroll and you're in among all of them.
The owner, Catherine, has gone to a lot of time and trouble to ensure her guests have a lovely place to stay in. The cottage is immaculate throughout. When it came to our last day, we didn't want to leave! It felt homely from the minute we walked through the door.
We would thoroughly recommend this cottage if you want to stay in Haworth or the surrounding area. We couldn't have wished for a better place.
Haworth is a small village located high on the moors in West Yorkshire and is famous all over the world as the home of the Bronte sisters, who wrote Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.
The Bronte House is now a first-class museum of the sisters and their novels and attracts literary visitors from all over the world. Book enthusiasts will recognise the names of characters from the books in local street names and local businesses. This really is the heart of Bronte country. The village now has a vibrant arts community and many artists, musicians and writers contribute to the creative feel of Main Street, which is full of quirky little shops offering unique art and other craft items made by local people. Within a few minutes walk of the museum are the glorious Yorkshire Moors which are excellent for walkers, hikers, painters and bird-spotting enthusiasts as well as those who have come in search of Cathy and Heathcliff. Also within a few minutes walk of Main Street is the wonderful Worth Valley Steam Railway, which operates for visitors for much of the year and the nostalgic Railway Children walk. The village is well-served with bars and restaurants and a range of tea shops offer very tempting afternoon teas. For those interested in local history the Tourist Information Centre, located at the top of Main Street, is the meeting place for excellent guided walks around the area and there is even a Ghost Walk after sunset which takes in the old churchyard and surrounding area. Every May Haworth goes back in time and celebrates a 3-day 1940s weekend where everyone comes in costume and the Home Guard protect the village against all-comers. The village was also on the tour de France route and is currently on the route of the celebrated 'Tour de Yorkshire'. Haworth is an ideal destination for book enthusiasts, walkers, cyclists, rail enthusiasts or for anyone who just wants total rest and relaxation in an idyllic setting.
