As always our visit to Haworth and the Apothecary Guest house and Tea rooms were a joy , the owners David and Nick were warmth personified , welcoming us as they always do with a smile .
We have been here now 3 times and have found everything to be excellent each time , lovely views of the Worth valley from room 7 AND the best view of the valley from any of the tea rooms that are on Main Street .
The location is spot on for the bronte's church , parsonage museum etc ,
Just walk straight ahead and within minutes you are on the trail to the Bronte waterfall and top withins (wuthering heights) . Or , turn left and take a stroll back through history down the cobbled Main Street .
Include the fleece pub , old white lion , black bull and the excellent Gascoignes , famous for its steam beer .
All in all The Apothecary is a friendly family run guest house where you arrive as guests and leave as friends ( we certainly look at the Sisley family as good friends ) It is a pleasure to write a little trifle on here in recognition of all they have done for us on each of our visits . So impressed are we that we are booked to return in December when a number of activities are on in the Main Street .
Thanks Dave and Nick
See you again in December
Love and all that
Bob n Judith
