A Unique Destination in the Heart of Brontë Country

The Perfect Destination for your Walking Holiday

The walking around Walshaw is quite simply breathtaking.

Right by the house are a number of enchanting walks, up on the moors, or down in the woods by the river.  The scenery is varied and beautiful any time of year. The area around Walshaw has one of the best rights-of-way networks in Britain and several national way-marked trails pass through its dramatic and varied scenery.

As well as a number of shorter walks, one of the highlights of staying at Walshaw is the walk over the moors to Wuthering Heights, and onto Haworth.  This 3 1/2 hour walk is highly recommended.

Britain’s first and best known National Trail, the Pennine Way, passes right by Walshaw. There’s an interesting article about the Pennine Way on the Walk website.

Hebden Bridge is itself one of the first Walkers are Welcome towns in the UK and is ideally suited to welcome your group for a walking holiday. The Calderdale Way, a 50-mile (80 km) circular route around the Calder Valley, skirts the town. It is one of the most popular local routes either for walking in chunks or as a more serious two day hike.
