Broughton Hall – Information
Broughton Hall is a stunning Grade I listed stately home located on the southern edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park near the town of Skipton. The vast Broughton Hall Estate has been owned by the Tempest family since 1097, with the Grade I listed Hall dating back to 1597. The Hall has remained in the same family for generations, through to the 31st generation of the Tempest family who have lovingly restored Broughton Hall to the luxurious family home it is today.
The two wings on either side of the Hall were added in 1810 by William Atkinson, the renowned architect who was also responsible for the magnificent Durham Cathedral. The family have acquired an enviable collection of fine art, furnishings and Gillow furniture over the centuries, which are beautifully displayed within the Hall.
The quintessentially English interiors offer elegance and style in abundance. The magnificent State Rooms are spacious and flooded with natural light thanks to the huge picture windows giving breathtaking views over the grounds and surrounding countryside. From the opulent Red Drawing Room with stunning gilded ceilings and a fabulous chandelier to the majestic Dining Room, Broughton Hall will delight and amaze your guests.
The beautiful Conservatory was added in the 19th century and is a perfect place to get away from it all, or join in with the fun and frivolity in the Billiards Room.
The roaring log fires make the house wonderfully cosy in winter time, with bracing winter walks through beautiful countryside close by. Or in summer time, throw open the conservatory doors and immerse yourself in the grounds, including beautiful formal gardens, landscaped parkland, rivers and woodland, to discover the joys of nature and the outdoors. Broughton Hall is surrounded by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with stunning scenery and many activities available on your doorstep.
The beautiful bedrooms are individually designed and elegantly furnished, with luxurious bed linen and supremely comfortable beds to ensure a good nights’ sleep.
The bedrooms have beautiful views over the surrounding parkland and formal gardens. Most of the bedrooms benefit from en-suite bathrooms, with two additional family bathrooms available. The bathrooms have all been sympathetically renovated to offer modern luxury with traditional styling, with the very best in fixtures and fittings. There are two single bedrooms and one twin bedroom to offer flexible accommodation for groups.
Within the grounds of the Estate lies Eden, a delightful six bedroom house offering additional accommodation for your group, or Eden can be used as staff accommodation. The house is well equipped and furnished in a contemporary style, with spaces to work, relax and entertain. Eden is just five minutes’ walk from the Hall, yet enjoys its own isolated setting with lovely views over the surrounding parkland.
The grounds of the Broughton Hall Estate extend to over 3,000 acres, with beautiful formal gardens adjacent to the Hall, landscaped parkland, woodland and rivers, with lovely rural walks and cycle rides through the Estate. There are good fishing opportunities in the river for keen anglers, and fantastic opportunities for nature watching and bird spotting.
The grounds have played host to many memorable events, including country shows, music festivals and open air theatre events. The team at Broughton Hall are on hand as and when required to ensure your event or celebration runs just as you would like it, with a host of experts available to entertain, guide or coach you on a wide variety of interests and activities.
