Here's why you should stay at ponden house. There is art everywhere--every common space, every room. Rooms are large with very comfortable beds and pillows. It is a very relaxing environment. My room was not ensuite . Although some rooms are. Breakfast was average. Note that there are no tv's at the establishment. Which can make for a nice break.... More

Thanks for sening in your review for Ponden House. It's good to know that you enjoyed your stay. The nearest pub is just under a mile distant and will take you 20 minutes to walk. As you mentioned, Ponden House has no TV for guests and that's a deliberate decision by management. This fact is displayed clearly on our promotional... More

Just returned from an Easter break at Ponden Guest House and wish I could bottle the experience. Brenda is a very warm hospitable host and a fantastic cook who has been doing bed and breakfast for many a year so is well experienced in what she makes appear to be a natural and effortless art! She produced a humungous Simnel... More

It's difficult to add anything new to what's already been said before. Fantastic location for walking, visiting Haworth (and other local towns) or just relaxing and enjoying the views. Ponden has a lovely homely feel to it, and Brenda looks after you in grand style. (Fresh coffee n biccies by the log fire was a real treat) Breakfast was superb... More

The first time we met Brenda (august 1993) was when walking the Pennine Way. We intended to camp at Brenda's and all rooms were occupied. But because of the poor weather we were offered a sleeping place in the barn. This was still at Ponden Hall with the large table were all guests had dinner at the same time. We... More

My (new) husband and I stayed here for two nights after our wedding, choosing Ponden House for its tranquility and good walks. At the time (March) the moors were atmospheric, misty and quiet, and we were the only people staying at the house. Brenda's house is beautiful, cosy and full of stunning art, interesting books, and the rooms are beautifully... More

The rooms are almost heavenly after a long day on the Pennine Way! Nice wooden floors and simply but rustically and elegantly laid out rooms, with even a cool rooftop window above one of the beds. The walls are artfully decorated with paintings and portraits, and the sitting room is a cosy place to have tea which was much welcome... More
