Upwood Holiday Park

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Peeps in a Pod"

Upwood Holiday Park Photo, Yorkshire, England
Quote:
Upwood Holiday Park is in West Yorkshire, UK and overlooks the villages of Haworth and Oxenhope. There are mainly caravans on site; static, tourers and motor homes, as well as a residential area and chalets. There is also room for tents and camping pods. I stayed here for three nights in early September. ~Booking Process~It doesn't seem to be possible to book online. There are booking forms available to print out and post - if you have word installed on your computer you can do this. Alternatively there's a phone number. I chose to ring up and book. The prices vary depending on the time of year, but the guy I spoke to on the phone said he had no idea when high season ended and there ...Read More

Bronte Parsonage Museum

Attraction | "Treading in the Footsteps of the Brontes"

Bronte Parsonage Museum Photo, Yorkshire, England
Quote:
The Brontë Parsonage Museum is in the village of Haworth in Yorkshire. Once in the area it's very well signposted and easy to find; at the top of the village, behind the church.Patrick Brontë, his wife and their six children moved to Haworth in 1820 when Patrick was appointed curate at Haworth Parish Church. Patrick outlived the rest of his family and after his death in 1861 the parsonage stayed in the possession of the church up until 1928, when it was put up for sale. It was acquired by The Brontë Society who have since used it to display their ever growing collection of Brontëana. Haworth has become something of a literary mecca and every year, innumerable visitors come to see the home ...Read More

Black Bull

Restaurant | ""Super, smashing, great.""

Black Bull Photo, Haworth, England
Quote:
The Black Bull is a public house at the top of the steep main shopping street in Haworth, Yorkshire. Standing on the cobbled square next to the church it's in an attractive setting. On a blackboard outside that they offer tea or coffee with a choice of cake or scone for £2.25, not a bad price when you consider that it's probably something of a tourist attraction. There's also a plaque outside which names it as the haunt of one Branwell Bronte, brother to the more famous Bronte sisters. A second glance at the plaque shows that Branwell was apparently made secretary of a club that met at the pub many years after his death! Oh well, it is well recorded that was a favourite drinking establishment of his, ...Read More

Ilkley Moor

Attraction | "On Ilkla Moor Baht Cat"

Ilkley Moor Photo, Yorkshire, England
Quote:
My family spent a few days in Yorkshire recently, and as it wasn't too far away, it was felt that a walk on Ilkley Moor, 'bah't tat' or not, was something we should do whilst there. ~About Ilkley Moor~Ilkley Moor is in the Southern part of the UK's Yorkshire Dales, up above the town of Ilkley. There are lots of walks to be taken up here, with fantastic views across Yorkshire and beyond. It rises to 402 metres above sea level and is an interesting place on many levels. Heather moorlands are internationally rare, despite being common in Northern Britain. Much of the flora and fauna is protected and it's an especially important place for some bird species. It also has ...Read More

Malham Cove and Gordale Scar

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "A Walk Around Malham"

Travel Photo by IgoUgo member
Quote:
Malhamdale is an area of outstanding natural beauty set in the Dales of South Yorkshire. Malham is the local village and home to scenery that can scarcely be rivalled in England. Part of the Pennine Way; the eight mile walk between Gordale Scar and Malham Cove is certainly a contender for the title of 'Best Walk in England'. At the southern entrance to the village is the National Park information centre, a good place to start any visit and find out about local events. Malham attracts about half a million visitors a year although there are only about two hundred residents, who live in old stone houses huddled on either side of the beck. There are two pubs - both of which serve meals, a coup...Read More
