Amazing remnants of the girl's footwear and clothing. So tiny for adult girls. Furniture and house are a timewarp.

Well worth going out of your way to find this quirky little place. A combination of history, great food and friendly staff all make for a great experience. Thornton deserves more recognition for its part in the Bronte story!
