Brontë Birthplace

Renovation Works at the Brontë Birthplace Uncover Historical Treasures

We’re excited to announce that renovation works are well underway at the Brontë Birthplace! As part of our project to restore and showcase this historic home, with plans to offer an authentic Airbnb experience, we’ve focused significant effort on the main bedroom, believed to be the nursery in which all six children slept in.

Discovering Hidden Historical Treasures

During the careful restoration process, we have uncovered some fascinating items that provide a glimpse into the past.

Among the treasures found within the walls were sections of original ceiling plaster, horsehair plaster from hidden reveals, and lead piping from the internal gas lamps circa 1850.

These relics not only tell the story of the Brontë family’s life in Thornton but also highlight the meticulous craftsmanship of the period.

Bringing the Main Bedroom Back to Life

The main bedroom, which will be a central feature in our Airbnb offering, is being restored to reflect its historical significance while providing modern comforts.

Visitors and guests will soon have the opportunity to stay in this beautifully preserved room, stepping back in time to experience the ambiance of the early 19th century.

This visual journey will highlight the transformation of the Brontë Birthplace, from its original state to its beautifully restored conditions, capturing the essence of its historical charm.

Stay tuned for more updates on our progress and the unveiling of the newly restored Brontë Birthplace. Thank you for your continued support as we bring this important literary landmark back to life.
