Much altered in the 19th century, Broadward Hall has a Regency Gothic appearance. A much earlier dwelling is recorded in a deed of 1650s. In 1672, hearth tax records Broadward Hall had 7 hearths - more than any other house in the area apart from Abcott Manor.
Broadward Hall estate is a site of special scientific interest. Visitors will tour the gardens and see the first stage of renovation of the Victorian walled garden, then visit the Victorian pump house, restored with a grant from DEFRA, and the site where a Bronze Age hoard was discovered in the mid-19th century (now in the British Museum). Those who are interested can visit the early 19th century archery walk lined with giant sequoia trees. Tea will be served in the music room.
The nearby church of St Cuthbert's will be open, with a memorial to the Bayley family who lived at Broadward Hall in the 17th century.
