Beautiful B&B in Bronte country
I chose this accomodation for its proximity to the Bronte Parsonage (home of the Bronte sisters). It turns out that this house actually belonged to Dr. Amos Ingham the family physician to Charlotte Bronte (author of Jane Eyre). The house was not only near the Parsonage but also within walking distance to the cobblestone streets of the village.
The house itself was wonderful with beautifully furnished rooms and surrounded by an English garden complete with chickens and ducks. We had a very nice walk in the garden and the paths behind the house before breakfast. It was cool and misty but the views were exactly what we had hoped to see on our trip.
Our room, Dr. Greenwood's Room, was comfortable and more than large enough for the two of us. Kaoru was pleased with the canopied bed and antique funishings. The bathroom was well appointed with a modern massage shower which worked well but might be a bit of a tight fit for many.
Breakfast was just right, not too much and not too little. Several cereals and juices were also available. We also enjoyed our talk with Gil, one of the owners, who not only told us more about the house but also pointed us in the right direction to find the moors which inspired Emily Bronte to write "Wurthering Heights".

Faultless and beleive the reviews!
Saw the reviews on this site, so contacted them and booked at short notice.
Its set in its own grounds with fab views.
Is a real credit to Ray and Gill, is the suberb condtion of the property, as its immaculate and not at all tired.
Ray was a perfect host.
Gorgeous room(Dr Amos Ingram`s) with 4 poster bed and brill view.
Robbie Coltrane had stayed there whilst filming anew ITV series due to be aired soon, and wrote the comment of" an absolute gem!"
Would recommend to anyone and we will return again!
Many thanks for a lovely stay!
We had looked at the reviews on a few web sites and all were good and when we arrived we were not disappointed. It felt like we were in our own home because the owners made us feel like it was home.... but more lavish. We had Dr Inghams room and thought it was the best after looking at some of the others while we were there.They owners were friendly and nothing was too much trouble.... the gardens were lovely... after a day in Skipton it was nice to sit in the private garden and read the papers with a bottle of wine. As other reviewers have said, The White Lion in Haworth is well worth a trip into, the a la carte meal was amazing. Overall, the whole weekend (our anniversary) was fantastic and we are thinking of returning next year for it too. Thanks Ray and Gill.
Just what the doctor ordered!
Just returned from a very brief but perfect overnight stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Have stayed in many up-market hotels but still love this caring individuality. The standard of the room was excellant with some really nice touches, there was even a little book relating to wedding anniversaries! We had the hot tub room and it just added to the whole experience. Ray & Jill were lovley and booked us in at the local New Zealand restaurant for our evening meal which was very good indeed.
A really nice treat, away from the hum-drum of our busy lives - thoroughly reccommended!
Simply The Best
Have stayed in several places in Hawoth--- but then found Ashmount we have stayed here twice before and would now not stay any where else, but decided to try the new room at No 21. The Retreat. WOW. Ray & Gill have thought of everything, a fantastic bedroom / lounge huge flat screen tv, cd player, remote controled log stove. The bathroom--- we have never seen a bath so big!!! It took 15mins to fill and we stayed in it for 2 hours, it's a double side by side jacuzzi with heating, music & lighting. We ordered champagne it came with crystal glasses & a huge ice bucket on a stand at the side of the bath!!! The pictures do not do this room justice. Can't wait to go again. It's so romantic my girlfriend was in heaven, candles to light in both rooms, flowers etc. In fact we have now re-booked. YOU have to see it to believe it.
Heavenly hottub in Haworth
The pretty town of Haworth had been on my list of one of the places to visit ever since I first read Wuthering Heights as a young girl. At last I had reason to visit and so found myself booking a room at the Ashmount Guest House just a short walk from the town's main street and the Bronte parsonage. The guest house itself is a beautifully maintained Victorian House nestled amongst stupendous gardens which are looked after by Ray and Gill the owners. My partner and I stayed in the Honeypot room with its huge hottub. The room itself was spacious enough for a short visit and the bathroom, although small, was well appointed with a fantastic shower. But of course the highlight was the patio garden with the hottub. Imagine an evening under the stars, champagne to hand, just yourself and loved one and there you have it.....an evening of bliss. Breakfast was excellent and Ray and Gill were on hand to answer our questions about places to visit and recommendations of restaurants in which to eat. All in all our stay lived up to our romantic expectations and we would love to return there someday in the near future.
We stayed in the Retreat at No. 21. On arrival we were made to feel extremely welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Ray and Gill were the perfect hosts. Such a beautiful guest house with stunning views. The room we stayed in was in immaculate condition, with a king size bed, which was the comfiest we have ever slept in. Jacuzzi and shower amazing!!! In the retreat, we had our own garden area, complete with bistro set, over looking the stunning views. The retreat also had a fridge. The special touches such as a decanter of sherry, fresh apples and chocolates added to the welcoming feeling. If you are wanting an extra special stay, we suggest The Retreat at No. 21.
We stayed at the Ashmount for a birthday treat and what a treat it turned out to be! We stayed in the Waiting Room and we just could not fault it , nor could we fault anything at all during our stay. The Ashmount certainly lived up to all the excellent reviews we had read about it and we do not hesitate to agree with them all. We hope to go back again sometime in the future as we know we will be offered a standard of care and hospitality unsurpassed .
I've just returned from this guest house and i've had such an enjoyable time I felt compelled to write.
We booked into the retreat at number 21, which is actually across the road in a seperate house.
Luxurious doesn't even sum up the room we stayed in it was absolutely beautiful! Decorated in creams and golds, furnished with a huge bed, 2 sofas, flat screen tv... the best was waiting next door in the bathroom. All in marble, twin sinks, power shower and the ultimate feature a 2 person jaccuzzi bath!
The owners of this establishment have really excelled themselves with their keen eye for detail and most friendly welcome.
The only downside was that the time went far to quickly.
On the whole this place is well worth a visit and I will definately be returning!!
