This was our fist visit despite it being a local attraction as we live in Doncaster. We did not realise that although the hall opens at 11:00 this is for taster tours and free access is not until 13:00. In the meantime we tour the gardens that gave us another perspective on Victorian life. We did use the cafe and... More

We love visiting Brodsworth and go several times a year. The development of the gardens has been a real pleasure to see and the kids love exploring the rock garden and the play area. The house feels as if the family has just left, so different from so many stately homes which feel cold. My daughter particularly loves the chandeliers... More

We arrived at 10.40 am, so took the 11am tour and both found it really interesting. It gave us a great insight into the house's history. After it finished, we wandered around the beautiful gardens for about 1.5 hours, then ate at the tea rooms. What a disappointment. Overpriced and underfed, we wished we had thought to visit a supermarket... More

My wife and I enjoyed both the house and its collection/contents. One of the best houses I have visited in many years. At the end of the tour we had tea and sandwiches with the most delicious sponge cake. We then walked the grounds which were a delight. Highly recommend a visit.

Surprised it's taken me this long to visit this gem on the edge of Doncaster. Never been to a hall where only minimal restoration has been done leaving the place looking as though the owners moved out yesterday. So much to see and very interesting; it really allowed you to imagine what life was like for the people that lived... More

We loved this house in its faded glory. The tour guide talk was very enlightening, explaining how the house had developed through the years & the tales of recycling were wonderful. There were lovely audio clips from people who had worked & lived in the house that brought it all to life too. As my husband is in a wheelchair... More

Entrance fee, expensive. (£30 for 2 adults, 1 child) House, nice and informative. Café, highly overpriced and lacked imagination. Gardens, nice walk round. Activities for kids, limited!

The house is as if the family have just left it. I particularly enjoyed the "downstairs" experience as my grandmother was in service and it is very evocative of that time and how hard those staff must have worked. The gardens are very interesting and we enjoyed a godd wander in the grounds of the house. Parking is easy and... More

I visited Brodsworth a couple of weeks ago almost 15 years since my last one. It's certainly worth the entrance fee, well kept gardens, polite, friendly, staff and a house that is well kept under the circumstances. A great history surrounds this house, a house that nobody really wanted other the original builders. Go visit soon, you won't be disappointed... More
