Fans of the Brontë sisters can get their hands on this historic Yorkshire mansion, which is said to have inspired settings for Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

Ponden Hall sits secluded on the Yorkshire Moors in the parish where Brontë patriarch Patrick Brontë was vicar. During this time, the country house was owned by the Heaton family, who were trustees of Patrick’s church, meaning that Emily, Anne, Charlotte and co visited the mansion many times.

Ponden Hall is currently operating as a B&B, with the Grade II*-listed building is for sale at £1m via Strutt & Parker. It welcomes Brontë fans from across the world who flock to the nearby Brontë museum and the Yorkshire Dales – where so many of Emily, Charlotte and Anne’s novels unfolded.

The 10-bedroom country house dates back to 1634 and has been updated from the days when Emily and her sisters would visit there as young children; however, its historic character remains via vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and stonework.

Views of the moors can be enjoyed across the Yorkshire property, which comes with four acres of private land.

It’s not the only house on the market right now with literary connections. Oscar Wilde’s marital home is for sale in London, while further afield, the childhood home of sci-fi author Ursula K Le Guin’s has listed in California’s Berkeley for $4.1m.
