ASHMOUNT COUN­TRY HOUSE, HA­WORTH

Well lo­cated for easy ac­cess to the Brontë Par­son­age Mu­seum and ev­ery­thing else Ha­worth has to of­fer, this Vic­to­rian ho­tel has great views of the dra­matic, sheep- dot­ted land­scape from its 12 bed­rooms, most of which have grand four-poster beds. In mid­win­ter you can warm your­self in front of the lounge fire, while brows­ing the Bron­tës’ works (ash­moun­tha­worth.co.uk).

WEAVERS GUEST­HOUSE, HA­WORTH

Set up by young cou­ple Josie and Bren­dan two years ago, Weavers is housed in three 18th-cen­tury for­mer weavers’ cot­tages that have been con­verted into a wel­com­ing guest­house with ex­posed beans and flag­stone floors. Some of the bed­rooms even have views of Brontë Par­son­age Mu­seum (weavers­guest­house.co.uk).

THE COUN­TRY LIV­ING HO­TEL ST GE­ORGE, HAR­RO­GATE

An hour’s drive from Ha­worth is the his­toric spa town of Har­ro­gate, home to one of Coun­try Liv­ing’s ex­clu­sive ho­tels. A stone’s throw from shops and tea­rooms, St Ge­orge is a grand Ge­or­gian build­ing, fea­tur­ing an el­e­gant draw­ing room with huge bay win­dows. The bed­rooms, many of which have pe­riod fea­tures, com­bine lux­ury touches with Cl-in­spired de­sign (coun­tryliv­ingho­tels.com).
