Yorkshire B&B in the heart of Brontë country
There’s a touch of Wuthering Heights about this sturdy Victorian house set on the edge of the Yorkshire moors in the village of Haworth – home of the famous Brontë sisters.
Know It All
Hit the spot
In the Brontë village of Haworth – 20 miles from Leeds.
Come here for...
• Affordable luxury in Brontë country. • Private outdoor hot tubs for turning up the heat. • Walks on the Yorkshire moors.
Guests can dine in the Drawing Room restaurant, where champagne afternoon teas are also served. With a day's notice, in-room supper picnics and breakfast in bed can be arranged.
Good to know
The hot tub suites fill up fast – do book well ahead. Ashmount Country House does not generally take one-night bookings on a Saturday.
Ten rooms, one suite
Comfortably furnished rooms come with a top of the range CD player and wi-fi . Five have private outdoor hot tubs, and some have four posters and iPod docks.
The Sanctuary Spa, Serenity Spa, Secret Garden rooms and two of the rooms at No 21 (next door) have a patio complete with outdoor hot tub. The Honey Pot has a huge whirlpool bath, while Suite Dreams at No 21 has a double ended rolltop bath for two.
Eat & Drink
Whether you go for the veggie option or the full Yorkshire, breakfast in the light and bright breakfast room is de-lish. Fuel up for a day on the moors with free range eggs, home cured bacon, local black pudding and lots more.
Candlelit dinner is the perfect way to end the day, and the award winning team at Ashmount offer daily changing menus, with favourites including slow cooked pork belly, Gressingham duck and seared sea bass. Peckish in the afternoon? Sneak back for a full afternoon tea, or order an early supper picnic in your room.
Full Yorkshire breakfast is served until 10:00 – brought to your room if you prefer. Champagne optional!
Yes – morning and evening.
See & Do
You’re just a couple of minutes from Haworth’s cobbled high street and the Brontë family parsonage. This now a fascinating museum dedicated to the family’s life and times.
Wander through the B&B's gardens with their statuary and cherubs, and walk on the wild moors of Wuthering Heights – the views from the top of craggy Top Withens will (literally) blow you away. Once you’ve had your fill of rugged Heathcliffe country, ride on the Keighley & Worth Valley steam railway through scenic countryside, or explore Skipton Castle and the Yorkshire sculpture park.
Get your dancing shoes on for Ashmount’s 1940’s weekend. The jitterbug, dashing uniforms and plenty of Glen Miller.
Sampling the goods should keep you warm on a brisk autumn day at the local Real Ale Festival.
