Two friends and I contacted Brenda about a booking with rather short notice. Still, we knew right away that Brenda would be a wonderful host since she was incredibly patient and flexible. The weekend was off to a great start when we were greeted by Brenda's good friends & the rest of her guests over a cup of tea. We... More

My husband booked this short weekend break as a surprise, and what a lovely surprise it was.Though the owner was away her daughter was a great hostess, managing brilliantly and cooking a scrumptious breakfast with a full guest house on our second morning. The rooms were lovely and comfy, with a great shower in our double ensuite If you get... More

We have been visiting Brenda at Ponden Guest House for many years now and my only reluctance to review it is from a selfish point of view in keeping this special place a secret. You will need to be determined to find it as it's off the main road and the track leading past the reservoir is not the best... More

Stayed for two nights which was perfect to get away from the business of life. Eat the first night at the excellent silent inn at the bottom of the hill and the second chose a takeaway pizza, wine and the hot-tub lit by fairy lights beneath the stars. The house itself is set back from a picturesque reservoir and in... More

This is a glorious part of the countryside and the views from every single window make the most of the stunning views. A light and airy but incredibly comfortable abode awaits you, with lovely atmospheric décor and furnishings and a great array of modern art. The bedrooms are large and very comfortable. Certainly one of the best nights sleep I... More

Brenda ensured our single night stay in her charming home was comfortable and peaceful. After a long, tiring day on the beautiful peninne way we were ready for a bit of spoiling and we certainly left the next morning totally refreshed and recharged. Thank you so much for our delightful stay.

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
