  • This walk is suitable for most fit adults/teens. I've seen families on the start of this walk but they go as far as Brontë Falls because after this it's mostly uphill. Expect to spend two to three hou...  more »
  • It is a good pleasant walk from Haworth, however it’s not an amazing experience when you get there, really is just the remains of an old cottage. However the other emails of the building do provide so...  more »

  • A very peaceful reflective place. Stunning views of the moors bring a packed lunch and stay a while it's truly lovely.
  • Stunning remote place also close by Bronte bridge and water fall just let's your imagination go wild here been many times just lay inside the building listen to the wind. Heathcliff if I dare now will you venture
  • Good views across the moors and only a short walk from Haworth and surrounding villages. Not worth going to though just for the Bronte connection as there isn't much to see.
  • The highlight of a lovely walk across the moor from oxenope taking in stanbury reservoir and Bronte waterfalls. If you are a Wuthering heights fan you should bear in mind that this ruin is probably not the one described in the book but it's position on the moor could be what Emily Bronte envisaged. The walk is lovely so it's worth a visit.
  • Great views all around, plus to potentially be in that place which inspired Wuthering Heights is an awesome thought. The fact it is delapidated does add to its sense of history, as well as a sadness of times gone by. But it makes you use your imagination more to imagine the building as it was. NB it is quite difficult to get to if you have walking difficulties, as it is about 1 1/2 miles from the nearest village, which I forget the name of. But the way across the moors to Top Withens is well paved with stones, albeit with one or two areas of wet mud to dodge, perhaps more on a rainy day.
