Visited Brodsworth on a very rainy July day in 2014. Sadly due to the weather we weren't able to enjoy the garden, but the house more than made up for this disappointment. It was fascinating to visit a property which looked as though the owners had just popped away for a few hours. Well worth a visit and would recommend.... More

Loved every minute of my visit and will definitely go again in the future. The house is quite unique as many of the personal items belong to the last occupiers are on view.

Visited to catch the end of the Victorian Faeries week. Despite a cold day the tour guide really lifted our spirits with an animated guided walk around the gardens, telling faerie stores which our children smile. The grounds are superb, with snowdrops peppering the undulating land and formal gardens which we look forward to seeing again in summer. The house... More

The house is kept exactly as it was left to English Heritage with all its original contents and has that lived in feeling.

Not worth the money. Did the whole thing in under 2 hours. Very little information from the Guides the displays were very bland. Gardens very poor.

We visited in November 2014 - an out of season time to fully explore the Hall, Church and Gardens. No matter ... we visited Brodsworth to attend the performance of A Christmas Carol by Chris Cade. It was hard to imagine a one man show ... What a delightful treat! He brought the story to life in the most creative... More

Great place to visit as it is an unspoilt country house. The gardens are large, varied and well kept. The tea room is good value and serves a quality variety of food.

I think this place is worth a visit. It is £10 each if your not an English Heritage member. Gardens are hughly impressive and maintained impeccably. The is house is exactly what you'd expect from a house of this period. It would be worth bringing children as there is a cafe or you could bring your own food and sit... More
