Have you ever wanted to go back to a time before life became frantic? Then Brodsworth Hall and gardens is for you. It is extremely well done - in that nothing has been done to the house since the last owner left. It is an authentic experience of times past - such a nice contrast to other great houses that...

Arrived on sunny mid week October morning to fill a few hours before a flight. The house was opening at 1pm however they were running tours of the house at 11 and 12 for approx 40 mins, which I prefer (too lazy to read guide books) The gardens were particularly lovely, even with autumn maintenance going on and worth a...

My friend and I had free entry here as part of a stay with a hotel dea . We knew very little about the place and had no idea what to expect, we were both very surprised and pleased with the halls. We managed to get into the free taster tour which was very informative, and the volunteer staff around... More

We went to the Brodsworth Hall Cafe last week for a hot Chocolate and noticed the board mentioned a Ploughman's, so we thought we would give it a try this week. How very disappointing - the ploughmans came with NO HAM, NO PICKLED ONIONS, NO BOILED EGGS, NO SALAD CREAM, NO MAYONNAISE, NO CRISPS, NO OLIVE OIL, NO SALAD DRESSING.................. More

Great place to visit with well tended gardens providing a lovely and peaceful walk. Very friendly guides who like to talk so leave plenty time to enjoy their fantastic knowledge. As you walk through you can almost see the wartime troops making use of the house and then there's the fascinating story of the family and how it sadly came... More

I was very surprised how much I enjoyed my visit to Brodsworth. The Victorian conservatory which was restored recently certainly has the WOW factor. I was lucky to come across two ladies working as guides who knew the last owner of the property and they had an enthralling story to tell. Guided tour of the house was interesting although the...

We went on a rainy day, so not the best weather to appreciate the beautiful gardens, but we took a big golf umbrella and wellies and walked round anyway. The house is breathtakingly grand and beautiful. It's laid out How it was back in the day. There was staff in every room who didn't force information on us but were... More

We started with a walk around the gardens. Every corner is enchanting! There are so many paths that you can happily wander around for over an hour. English Heritage gardeners have obviously done a fantastic job! We had lunch in the tea-rooms. we had a sausage stew. not sure the sausages were high quality, but it was good. The cakes... More
