The Old Sun Hotel

The greatest hotel in haworth


Welcome to The Old Sun, Haworth – a traditional, family run pub, in the heart of the Pennines, West Yorkshire.

We are proud of the service we provide here at The Sun with a vast range of lagers, ciders and spirits as well as cask ales, all at reasonable prices. Our menu offers good freshly prepared produce and we serve food daily, except Monday.

The Old Sun offers accommodation with four en-suite guest rooms available and a full English breakfast included in the room price. We also have a conservatory which is used as a function room for parties, meetings and community events such as the Haworth Arts festival. Our Hotel is the closest to the moors of all Haworth’s hotels, just a few minutes from Penistone Hill. From there clearly marked footpaths lead you across to the Brontẻ Falls, Top Withens (Wuthering Heights) and beyond. Why not book a room now? We are also close to all of the major attractions of Haworth village: The Brontẻ Parsonage Museum; The Parish Church; Schoolrooms; Tourist Information Centre; Apothecary and the historic cobbles of Main Street, with all its quaint shops and tea rooms. We are approximately 200 metres from the world-famous Bronte Parsonage Museum and the famous walk to the Bronte Bridge [a Grade II listed site] comes very close to us. Haworth Station [another Grade II listed building], on the excellent Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, featuring steam locomotives daily (best known for ‘The Railway Children’ film with Jenny Agutter, and ‘Yanks’ with Richard Gere, and has starred in countless other TV and film productions) is close by. Links to the eerie past still linger on in Haworth. On some old buildings, strange stone faces, known as “Archaic stone heads,” stare out onto the street. They look like ancient Celtic stone heads, but historical researcher John Billingsley says they were a continuing folk magic custom that experienced a rebirth of popularity in the area in the 17th and 19th centuries. They were used to ward off evil, and as late as 1971 a head was placed over the front door of the Old Sun Inn to stop a haunting. It’s said to have worked and if you have any sort of curiosity about the supernatural it is an interesting take on the building and well worth a visit to experience the atmosphere of this mythical legend. Haworth is a historic village in the Metropolitan Borough of West Yorkshire. Located in the heart of the Pennines, 10 miles west of Bradford.
