Fantastic step back in time, very well cared for grounds and although the Hall itself was closed on our visit the building really did stand out both historically and imaginatively. The day we visited was dull and rainy but we enjoyed our relatively short visit none the less, we intend to go back. The 'local authority run cafe' needs 'jazzing... More

Loads of parks near by but we always prefer oakwell hall because it has a beautiful scenic walk. Great for picnics, walks or just general fun for the kids.

So this place is quite hilly in parts and has several Unmade paths so beware of wheelchair use - might be a bit tricky. It's quite a nice place to have a stroll for an hour - lot's of dogs being exercised - and a stream for kids to maybe have a splash in. There's a small cafe near the... More

The building, The gardens, the walk, the field, the history, and the connection with Charlotte Bronte, ... what more could I ask for? We spent three heavenly hours there, and went back the next day.

Went on a very rainy day and still enjoyed but would like to go back in better weather to spend more time in the grounds
