Holme Pierrepont Hall is the earliest brick building in Nottinghamshire, built by Sir William Pierrepont in 1500 and still lived in by his descendants.
The house is set in Parkland and Gardens, ten or so minutes from the middle of Nottingham, yet in a rural setting, as part of a hamlet that once was the centre of a large estate.
The Mediaeval Lodgings have remained unaltered since the time the house was built with their oak beams brickwork and open fires.
The house contains both family pictures and furniture that relate to both the Pierrepont and Brackenbury families.
The Grade II listed Courtyard Garden was designed in 1875 and has a miniature box parterre and is best seen from the first floor of the building. The East Garden was laid out in 1973 and has clipped formal yews with the garden wall of 1628 on two sides.
House: February and March, Sunday to Wednesday; April, Sundays only (excluding Easter Sunday); 2pm to 5pm.
Gardens only: April and May, Tuesdays and Wednesdays; June, Tuesdays only; 2pm to 5pm.
Holme Pierrepont Hall is 3 miles from Trent Bridge, off the A52 Nottingham to Grantham Road. Turn off the A52 at the edge of West Bridgeford, pass the National Water Sports Centre, and follow signs to the house.

A word from the owner
We, as a family are very involved with the running of the house and all the rooms open are used by the family every day. We hope you enjoy your visit.
- Sir Henry Pierrepont, whose monument can be seen in the church St Edmund’s which is adjacent to the house married Frances Cavendish daughter of Bess of Hardwick.
- The Pierrepont family were involved in the Civil War, with two brothers taking opposing sides. Their mother lived at Holme Pierrepont and consequently the house was never attacked during the Civil War.
- Other notable people were Evelyn 1st Duke of Kingston who was a member of the Kit Kat Club. His daughter Lady Mary Pierrepont was a famous writer and traveller and was better known by her married name Wortley Montague. She brought the small pox vaccine back to Britain.
- Elizabeth Chudleigh Duchess of Kingston was the last peeress to be tried in Westminster Hall for bigamy. She was found guilty, and evaded prison by ending her days in Russia, becoming a friend of Catherine the Great. The Peacock Clock in the Hermitage once belonged to the Duchess.
A beautiful, historic, country house with picturesque courtyard garden and parkland and yet only ten minutes from Nottingham city centre.
It provides a perfect, romantic setting for your wedding and civil ceremony and is exclusively yours for the day.
This magnificent manor house has five reception rooms all elegantly decorated with family portraits and antique furniture and can accommodate up to 120 guests for dining and around 150 for an evening party.
The Hall built in 1500 is still a family home to descendants of the Pierreponts and this is reflected in the personal service from the Brackenbury family and the friendly and relaxed ambience of the venue.
Thank you for the use of your beautiful home for our wedding. All of our guests commented on what a wonderful place it is

We had our away day on the 11th July and I just wanted to let you know that we have had a lot of extremely positive feedback about the venue and the catering. We were very lucky with the weather and we were able to go outside for a large part of the day, but even when we were inside, our attendees were very impressed with the rooms that we were in. They loved the food also!
We welcome requests for filming.
