Well worth a visit: a small but perfect house. The exhibition was really engaging for anyone interested in Charlotte Bronte and her town remarkable friends: all amazing women. Loved the gardens as well and enjoyed a cuppa in the cafe.

we came here after getting a joint ticket with Oakwell Hall, which is. 5 minute drive away. Its not worth coming on its own as its quite small. However the place is well laid out, with life like models in some of the rooms. You are given a small guide to explain more as you go around. Not much to... More

Often Charlotte Bronte slept here, and played with her friends Mary Taylor and Ellen Nussey. This middle class family house, which had been in the Taylor family since 1660, is displayed as it was in the mid-1830s. Outside are recreated nineteenth century gardens while a display in the Barn shows the very different lives experienced by Charlotte, Ellen and Mary... More

Its a favorite of mine in honesty. The house has strong Bronte connections but the Taylor family who owned it are fascinating. The 1830's garden is delightful and you can now get a cup of tea or coffee which is great.

We got there late one Sunday afternoon after visiting the nearby Oakwell Hall and were greeted by staff who were very helpful - pointing out that the separate exhibition space closed before the house and so advising we went there first. The exhibition was based on the novel "Shirley" with the Bronte connection to the house and exploring history of... More

well worth a visit - a lovely house structurally, furnished in the style of the last family to live there. Some interesting history of Mary Taylor and Charlotte Bronte too.

If your in this area this is a little gem of a house. The house has a great feel about it. Delightful 1830's cloth merchant's home with fascinating Brontë connections. Charlotte Brontë visited often and featured Red House in her novel "Shirley". Includes period rooms, enchanting recreated gardens and exhibitions in restored outbuildings. Each of the rooms brings you closer... More

A great little museum not far from me. Great for smaller kids because theirs a playground and loads of things to do. Needs somewhere to get a drink though :)
