Location + Surroundings
This glamping pod is located in the beautiful countryside of England, close to the Yorkshire Dales National Park and just one mile from the Brontë village of Haworth and the Worth Valley steam railway.
Other nearby attractions include Malham Cove, a natural limestone cliff overlooking the ocean. Bronte Parsonage, the home of the famous sisters of British literature is nearby, and also Top Withens, an old farmhouse that is rumored to be the inspiration for Wuthering Heights. Although the house itself does not resemble the literary mansion, the surrounding moorlands may have found their way into the book.
Also nearby is the National Media Museum in Bradford. It is home to millions of historical items, such as the UK’s first IMAX cinema and a working BBC studio, as well as eight floors of galleries and exhibits. The St. Ives Estate is a 550-acre country park, listed on the English Heritage National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of Special Interest. The Keighley and Worth Valley railway takes glampers back to the age of steam, as it was built in 1867 and ran until 1962 until it was reopened in 1968 by a preservation society.
Also in Bradford, there are many historical landmarks and medieval buildings for glampers to discover. Its oldest building is an elegant cathedral, and close in age is Bolling Hall, which is now a museum. There are also several Victorian-era buildings, such as the City Hall, the former Wool Exchange, and a large cemetery at Undercliffe.
Another local natural point of interest is the Cow and Calf, which are giant rock formations consisting of an outcrop and a boulder with panoramic views of Wharfe Valley. This is often used as a starting point for walking across the moors. Read More
