An1830s cloth merchant's home with fascinating Brontë connections. We arrived on 2nd Jan to find only the the main house open, hence a reduced entry fee. The gardens are seasonal so I make no comment on them. The hall has little information and you can visit all rooms in less than 30 minutes

The children were kept entertained by their own trail and there's a lovely little shop at the end with pocket money toys. Having been to several Bronte attractions, including those... More

Less famous than its Haworth competitor this site is a must visit for anyone interested in the Brontes - or the social history of milling in the West Riding.

The Bronte expo is great and watch out for events in the hay loft. Not a huge place but worth visiting and getting a feel of the local history.
