The promise of English elegance

Boasting the same English elegance as Brideshead, Broadstone Court sits where the best of England meets the best of Wales. Gather your folks or hens together and invade the games room and the bar. Play a little pool. Fire pizza in the outdoor clay oven. Revel in the local festivals. Attempt to leave.

Sumptuous Herefordshire Mansion

Broadstone has bags of sumptuous period detail; infinity lawns; character, poise and promise of English elegance. Where England becomes Wales, in the rolling hills of Herefordshire, Broadstone Court is a place where people become man and wife. You don’t have to get married to stay here, but you might feel like young lovers again. Young lovers who’ve brought all their friends and family to share in their story.

This is a rural idyll, set in 22 acres at the end of the tree lined driveaway that suits a fleet of Bentleys, although that’s not a requirement. Inside, stunning heritage features gel perfectly with modern home comforts. With a huge games room, bar, library and pool table, it’s a special spot for special gatherings.

This is a place to meet on the terrace around the firepits. To fire pizza in the clay oven. To wander the rose garden, woods and orchard. To pull a book from the shelf and unwind within its pages. To leave only to revel in local arts and music festivals. Or to chill in chatty groups in the many lounges and catch up on your box sets.

Gardens and grounds

Within the grounds of Broadstone’s 22-acre estate lies 5 acres of south facing luscious lawns, a David Austin rose garden, walled kitchen garden, orchard and woods. Nothing stirs here apart from the odd snuffling hedgehog or the occasional rustle of a woodpecker alighting from the trees.

Enjoy a little croquet on the lawns, or play your own test match. Explore the woods, kitchen garden and grapevines. Organise a treasure hunt for the kids or a picnic by the fish pond. In the evening, throw a cardie on, light the terrace firepits and get some pizza going in the clay oven.
