Oxford Road, Gomersal, Cleckheaton, BD19 4JP

Delightful 1830s cloth merchant's home with fascinating Bronte  connections. Charlotte Bronte visited often and featured Red House in her novel "Shirley". Includes period rooms, enchanting recreated gardens and exhibitions in restored outbuildings.

Built in 1660, Red House was home to cloth merchants the Taylor family. Mary Taylor, daughter of the house in the 19th Century, was a close friend of Charlotte Bronte, who featured the house as 'Briarmains' in 'Shirley'. Her fondness for the house is evident: "There was no splendour but there was taste everywhere."

Red House still looks very much as it would have in Charlotte's day. Each of the rooms brings you closer to the 1830s, from the elegant parlour to the stone-flagged kitchen.
