Having read the leaflet telling of artisans and artists we trotted along around 10.30am to find the place closed. No information, cafe closed and not a person in sight. If the owner wants to complete the restoration then he needs to smarten up the way...More

This key link to Lady Anne Clifford (plus the nearby castle ruins) takes you off a more direct route into Penrith, but it’s worth the extra distance to bring the adventure of walking Lady Anne’s Way from Skipton to a fitting end. It’s in a...More

Visited because I wanted to see the chapel, Lady Anne Clifford's own chapel. It was locked and nobody seemed to know where the key could be found. The hall itself had a tea room, lots of expensive craft shops and little else! Free entry which...More

We had read about the Restoration work going on here but there was no one around doing anything. Very little information on site, it was deserted. The little shops were also deserted apart from one potter who popped her head out to say hello. Didn't...More

This place has a fascinating history which we found on google. When we arrived there was very little information about what to see and the history of the hall. Some leaflets or boards would be welcome. Do go to the wonderful little church at the...More

Grim is a word I would never have thought to use about Brougham Hall. Been there lots, taken others there to enthuse. Now it is more neglected and not at all welcoming. Craft shops open when we went, ludicrous prices for really badly made stuff...More

Great venue for family and friends to gather and celebrate the bride and groom. Wonderful setting in historic Brougham Hall. Made even more special when the weather was glorious.

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.
