Radio Times Travel has a Brontë country offer:
Brontë Country and Haworth Christmas Markets (November 2013)

Yorkshire's finest Christmas markets

Surrounded by the rugged countryside of the Pennine Moors, the sleepy Yorkshire village of Haworth - one-time home of the famous Bronte sisters - is transformed at Christmastime. This fantastic-value weekend break includes a visit to the village's hugely popular Victorian Christmas Market, and to Leeds's German Christmas Market, the Christkindlemarkt. (...)

Day Two

After breakfast, we'll make our way to Haworth's Victorian Christmas Market. Browse the festive shops and stalls offering unique crafts, gifts and local produce, enjoy the street entertainment and visit Santa's Grotto as the smell of mulled wine and roasting chestnuts fills the air.

There'll be time for you to explore the village, and perhaps visit the Brontë Parsonage Museum (payable locally) where the sisters grew up. Stop for refreshments at the 17th-century Black Bull Inn, supposedly frequented by Patrick Brontë, or - weather-permitting - enjoy a walk past the local church (complete with stocks) downhill to Haworth Station, which has been perfectly preserved since the 1950s, and provided the backdrop to the film 'The Railway Children'.
