The incredible Yorkshire Airbnb vacation cottage that inspired one of the best novels of all time

Law Farm, near Halifax, is said to have inspired Emily Brontë’s famous book and can be rented on Airbnb

A rural farmhouse thought to be the inspiration for a classic Brontë novel is available for rent through Airbnb.

Law Farm near Halifax is believed to have inspired Emily Brontë’s 1847 novel, Wuthering Heights, and is now a four-bedroom house available for rent as a vacation cottage.

Academics say the building’s story inspired the classic novel, as it bears many similarities to the story’s plot.

“The Oxford Companion to the Brontës” says that Emily Brontë worked as a teacher here for a brief period between 1838 and 1839, and what she learned laid the foundation for her classical literary work.

For starters, the farm is very similar to the house depicted in the novel, as it is a stone building on a windswept hill surrounded by countryside.

The man who built the house is said to have behaved a bit like Heathcliff, the main character in the novel.

He, too, was an orphan, and after being exiled from neighboring Walterclough Hall, he devoted his life to revenge and ruined the family that had driven him out.

Fortunately, the house has been completely renovated and your stay will not be as miserable as the events in Wuthering Heights.

Just hope you don’t hear a tapping on the window late at night …
