My boyfriend and I stayed at the Old White Lion in June 2004. We found our accomodations to be above and beyond our expectations. The restaurant/bar was not only charming and authentic, but also served incredible food! The view from our window was of the little cobblestone streets that line the village of Haworth.
During our trip we traveled to London and Paris as well, but I have to say Haworth was the highlight of our adventure (despite wacky weather and continuous bursts of rain on the Moors). The Old White Lion made the journey even more memorable. You can't beat the location in the middle of this adorable historic village, and you can't find more spacious accomodations anywhere on the other side of the Atlantic.
