Features
  • Meet the owner

Bruisyard Hall was founded by Maud, Countess of Ulster, in 1354 and was occupied by many courtly ladies.

Set within a 700-acre estate, it remains the idyllic country retreat that she wanted it to be. The Hall was rebuilt by the Hare family after the dissolution of the monasteries and incorporates a “priest’s hole” as they remained staunchly Roman Catholic under Elizabeth I. The owner is a direct descendant of Sir Thomas Rous who inherited the Tudor house in 1611.
