Browsholme Hall & Gardens
Attraction in Lancs,
Browsholme Hall, pronounced ‘Brewzum’, lies in the Forest of Bowland, Lancashire and has, since 1507, been the home of the Parker Family. A unique historic house, not least for its romantic picturesque gardens and remarkable antiquarian collection of possessions, accumulated over fourteen generations of continuous occupation by the family. Browsholme’s Tithe Barn has been restored into a unique venue for weddings and receptions, where couples have the freedom to bring forward their inspirations to create a unique wedding and reception for their family and friends. The Tithe Barn is individual and exclusive, while the gardens make Browsholme a wonderful romantic setting for a special day whatever the season. Visitors can walk along paths through shrubberies and by the lake, marvel at the ‘ha-ha’ with parkland and woodlands beyond to the ‘eye-catcher’ an ancient arch brought from Ingleton Hall.
Browsholme Hall has been the ancestral home of the Parkers, Bowbearers of the Forest of Bowland since Tudor times. Today it is still the family’s home and we invite visitors to enjoy its magnificent architecture, fabulous interiors and antique furnishings set in the stunning landscape of the Hodder Valley.Visitors will not only view the remarkable antiquarian collection but truly gain the genuine atmosphere of a family home.
