We have visited Brodsworth many times. It is an English Heritage site and well worth a visit. The extensive gardens make for a very pleasant walk and the formal gardens are beautifully presented, with dazzling colours. It is also worth taking a tour of the house. It has not been fully restored but is nevertheless very interesting with some fine... More

Brodsworth hall house is a beautiful house surrounded by a beautiful garden, There is a play ground for children 7+. Although over all we enjoyed our visit we felt that the cafe was VERY over priced at £7.95 for a stuffed potato skin and £5 for what could only be described as a tea cup of soup.

Brodsworth really is well worth a visit. There is a very good sized car park just a short walk from the house. The gardens are superb, very varied and at this time of year full of colour. The rose garden and the fern dell are particularly lovely. The gardeners do a great job, especially as one of the guides told... More

Brodsworth Hall is very local to us, and we visit there a number of times a year. Probably not a typical English Heritage property, which tend in my experience to usually be castles and such like, the Hall is more what I would expect from the National Trust, but I like what they have done with it. They haven't tried... More

Not quite a time capsule but well done to English heritage, this year they have added a excellent world war 1 exibition that runs through all rooms and a special exhibition room . This especially this year is very interesting to tie in with the use of the house . The gardens are a delight

This was not fully open when we visited in the spring, but the gardens looked lovely with a carpet of snowdrops. We had access to the kitchens and will visit again to see the rest of the property.
