Welcome to The Fleece Inn
Haworth is the epitome of Emily Brontë’s legendary Wuthering Heights. There’s an enchanting mystique to the wild and rugged moors that surround this beautiful village – you can practically hear the echoes of Catherine and Heathcliffe around every cobbled and heather strewn corner. Prepare to fall in love with Haworth and its living, breathing past.
Haworth’s heart is its stunning Main Street. In summer it’s a buzzing hive of activity with shops, crafts and tea rooms as well as fantastic pubs (mainly ours of course!), and magnificent moorland views that compel visitors to pause for a photo opportunity practically every other step. During the winter months the wonderful rolling mists cloak the landscape, making easy to lose yourself in the famous Brontë Parsonage and immerse yourself in the history of its historic graveyard.
As well as some spectacular walking trails out to ruined farmhouses and waterfalls, Haworth boasts a fabulous old railway station. Stand on the bridge and watch the vintage steam trains puff their way in and out of the valley, or jump aboard and imagine you’re in The Railway Children as you travel to the Edwardian Oakworth station – the location for the famous 1970s film.
Making It Easy To Lose Yourself
Wander into Haworth in May and you may just see GI’s dancing outside on the Main Street at the famous 40’s weekend to the strains of Glen Miller. Come in December and you could find the village children “scroggling the holly” & see the Torchlight Procession. Best of all, come on a foggy winter’s morning when there are few other tourists and you might just get a sense of the village that the Brontes knew.
The Fleece is also the home of the famous Haworth Brass Band, who are here every Monday evening so you might just catch them practicing in their band room upstairs, as well as performing a fantastic Christmas concert on the street for us.
