The famous ‘Cathy window’ is here at Ponden Hall – where Cathy’s ghost struggled to get in, desperately searching for her lover Heathcliff in Emily Bronte’s famous novel ‘Wuthering Heights’.
For a unique Bronte experience or to celebrate a special occasion, do as Mr Lockwood did, and sleep the night in the 18th-century-style box bed, designed as a copy of the famous Wuthering Heights bed described in detail by Emily in the novel – and built around the famous window. If you’re brave enough you can open the panel across the window to see our recreation of the family Bible where Cathy wrote her name. If not, close all the panels and curl up for the night!
Before bed, you can relax on the sofa in front of the log-burning stove.
Tea and coffee-making facilities are available, as is free wifi. And for 21st-century comfort there’s a discreet but highly modern bathroom with shower, and a hairdryer.
