The postcode, using satnav, will eventually bring you to Walshaw Lodge's back door, but the road is poor and you'll cover a lot of arduous and unnecessary miles: don't go that way. Instead navigate to Hebden Bridge and take the road up the hill towards Keighley. When the houses on the left end there is a half turn to the left signposted Hardcastle Crags /Midgehole (T no through road). Go there.
The road widens and then narrows again. When the houses on the right end you come to the National Trust gate with a car park on the right. Go through the gate and straight ahead up the hill through the trees. Do NOT turn right which your satnav will tell you to do. Half way to the house you come to Gibson's Mill, the oldest mill in Yorkshire. Keep going.After another mile or so you will see the house sitting out on a sort of plateau. The first house you come to is signposted Walshaw Cottage. That is where Kath our housekeeper lives. She will be waiting for you to give you the keys and show you round. If you get lost or are late please ring her on +44 (0)1422 843937.
Wuthering Heights is an easy walk up the hill behind the house and the moors are all around: walks lead out from the house in five directions. With a car it's far less isolated: ten minutes reaches the super-trendy town of Hebden Bridge. This shot to recent fame as the location for TV's 'Happy Valley', and has plenty to offer.
