Brodsworth Hall is not a typical stately home in that it has been restored to appear as it was when the last tenants left (well done to English Heritage for taking this house on). Anyone interested in history will find this fascinating, with it's faded opulent Victorian and Georgian decoration mixed it with bits and pieces from more recent times. There is a free guided tour at 11am and 12pm, I would highly recommend this as the staff (Reg and Margaret, thank you) conducting the tour were enthusiastic and informative. From 1pm, you can wander around the house freely and there were lots of other knowledgeable staff who gave us interesting information. There is a cafe with reasonably priced nice food and drink, though as with most places these days you get a queue due I think to waiting for the coffee machines to do their business. We loved the gardens despite the unsettled weather and the fact it wasn't in full bloom, they were very peaceful. Well done to whoever does the bush topiary! We shall come again in summer to see the roses.

Well signed from the main road and lots of parking, they use the grass when the car park is full on event days.
The main house was shut in July 2017 when we visited but you could book a guided tour for the ground floor. Interesting to hear about the layers of dog poo on the carpets as the owner let them have free rein in the house.
The gardens are beautiful with lots of hidden nooks and crannies,don't rely too much on the free map.
There was a gymkhana on, a falconry display and the free rides on the Penny Farthing so well worth the admittance fee even with the house being closed.

Not a traditional stately home visit. This place is like walking into someone’s home from 100 years ago (albeit someone with a lot of money!). The scale of the rooms is especially impressive and the feeling that someone just walked out and left it as it is is very odd. Grounds great too - even on a wet Sunday! Well worth a visit.

Great walk around the gardens and house. Really enjoyed all the old photos and property that displays 200 years of ownership and inheritance. Interesting stories of the rise and fall of the building. Nice tearoom too.
