Broughton Castle


Broughton Castle, which dates back from the fourteenth century, is nestled in beautiful landscaped gardens and parkland and has been in the seat of the Fiennes family for over 600 years.

It was selected by Simon Jenkins as one of only twenty to be awarded five stars in his book ‘England's Thousand Best Houses’ and is located near the centre of England with easy access off the M40.

The grounds include a moat and a formal walled garden plus herbaceous borders, where soft romantic plantings and masses of roses are the highlights. Visitors can see a medieval great hall, vaulted passageways, magnificent plaster ceilings, fine panelling and fireplaces. It has been the location for television and films including Shakespeare in Love, Madness of King George, Wolf Hall, Three Men and a Little Lady, Jane Eyre, Father Brown and many more.
