About Joanna Jackson

Joanna and I have lived in the Haworth area all our lives and we feel fortunate to be able to bring up our family in this part of Yorkshire. The cottage is part of our farm where we also have horses, a small number of sheep, 2 cats (George & Henry) and a Springer Spaniel called Sally. I work locally and my wife teaches at a local equestrian centre. For us having the cottage gives us the opportunity to share this part of the South Pennines with guests from around the world, offering the chance to unwind in a traditional cottage amongst some beautiful and interesting countryside.

Why Joanna Jackson chose

We bought Royds Hall Farm as part of a plan to breath life into an old Yorkshire farmhouse and pursue a more rural life. We feel the location is unique in that walks to the local moors are on your doorstep, Haworth is 1.2 miles/30 minutes on foot and local amenities (supermarkets & shops) are available in Keighley and Colne, each about a 15 minute drive. For us however, the best part about living at Royds Hall Farm is being stood outside on a summers evening watching a glorious sunset over Ponden Resevoir with a cool glass of wine in hand and is an experience of which we never tire.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is in a superb position with excellent views from the kitchen windows over Ponden Resevoir and the head of the Upper Worth Valley. There are numerous walks to 'Wuthering Hieghts' and Bronte Falls and Stanbury offers 3 village inns within walking distance. Haworth has a unique charm and an abundance of history as well as the Keighley & Worth Valley Steam Railway for something a little different. Further afield other destinations such as Skipton, Harrogate, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District are within easy reach as is Liverpool's historic Albert Dock. Alternatively you may wish to simply relax in the cottage in front of the wood-buring stove after a day walking the hills - it will be up to you.
