Lots of work being done to restore this lovely hall. Several nice little shops selling pottery, paintings etc. Only a short visit but can see the potential to be an amazing attraction.

A great visit, the "halls" grounds contains a variety of craft shops and a very good cafe. This site has a history covering nearly 2000 years as it has links to the old Roman road.

We visited the hall, primarily looking for somewhere to get a cup of tea. It was a pleasant little walk around some artisan shops. Proprietors were very welcoming, without pressure sales. We had tea and sandwiches in the tea room. The owner was super friendly,...More

A really interesting and unusual venue with small Artisan shops to look at and an excellent cafe offering a good selection of food. Well worth a visit.

Well worth stopping for a look around at this partial ruin, never knew the facts about it. Has a number of artist studios and a tea room.

What a wonderful little spot to sit and relax! Just off the A6 at Eamont Bridge south side. Fabulous tea room in the grounds along with an intriging history too. A must for appreciative visitors

Although a very historic and looks impressive from outside it's a bit disappointing on the inside. A small cafe and a couple of shops. The lawn was well kept but other than that not much else to say about it really. Go to the castle...More

This is not actually the Brougham Castle but another site just around the bend. Probably used by the castle occupants at some time it is being restored and will be awesome when completed.
