YHA Haworth is a Victorian Gothic Mansion that was built as the family home of a local mill owner. Inside the building the sweeping staircase, ornate painted glass, richly carved oak and plaster friezes hint at the building’s opulent past.

The hostel is well used by groups but it is also very popular with individuals, families and overseas travellers. We're ideally situated for backpackers travelling around the Hebden Bridge and Todmorden areas, and of course, the village is best known as home of the Bronte sisters.

Why guests love YHA Haworth

  • Overlooking the Worth Valley and Bronte village

The Bronte sisters wrote their famous novels whilst living at the parsonage in the village. It is now an evocative  museum furnished as it was in their day. The Keighley and Worth Valley steam railway passes through Haworth. The iconic film The Railway Children was filmed here.

Meet the team

YHA Haworth Manager: I have worked for YHA for nearly 30 years and have managed YHA Haworth for nearly 20 years. I hail from Harwich in Essex but I love this part of the country. Everyone is so friendly, there are lots places of interest and the countryside is stunningly beautiful. My latest hobbies are playing tennis and trying to learn Spanish.

Manager recommends: Take a shortcut to the village by crossing over the railway bridge and through the award-winning park. If you're lucky, a steam train might be passing by.
