Discover Bronte Country in all its glory with a stay in the picturesque village of Oxenhope. Surrounded by the scenery that’s made Yorkshire famous, Oxenhope is a popular choice with walkers all year round and remains one of the region’s most unspoilt corners.
Don’t miss the Railway Children Walk, a unique trail that takes visitors to the buildings and spots that featured in the classic film (yes you guessed it) The Railway Children. If you want to experience the village at its liveliest, time your stay for the Oxenhope Straw Race which sees locals race from pub to pub in fancy dress…carrying bales of straw of course.
If you feel like venturing a little further from the village you’ll find Haworth just a few minutes’ drive away, and this rather beautiful little village was once home to the Bronte sisters and their family. Wander the Bronte family home that’s now the Bronte Parsonage Museum and get a glimpse of what life was like for the infamous sisters.
