Brodsworth hall is a beautiful house captured in time, Now owned by English Heritage it has been carefully preserved as it was when the last residant, Mrs Grant Dalton died. It gives a glimpse of oppulent life up to 1960`s. The main rooms are very interesting and the servants` rooms and kitchens are fascinating. This year the house is telling the story of its involvement in WW2, how do you manage when 700 men evacuated from the Dunkirk beaches arrive on your front lawns?
It`s not only for grown ups, there is lots of onterest for children and a lovely play park in the grounds.And let us not forget the Pets Cemetery, a must for inquisitive children they can work out who was the oldest pet. The gardens are worth a visit on their own, from the manicured formal garden to the rose gardens, quiet walks and my favourite, the fern dell where you can sit on the seat at the top and just lose yourself in a bygone era.
We have friends visiting us from Essex this summer and Brodsworth will be top of our list of places to show of the best of Yorkshire.
