Visit this grand 17th-century farmhouse and you’ll discover period fireplaces, oak panelling and grounds rich with history dating to the Iron Age.

The Hall

Braithwaite Hall is an unusual building that isn’t typical of the area. It's thought that its grand appearance may be connected with the development of lead mining on the estate.

When you first step inside, take some time to admire the stone-flagged entrance hall, and note the impressive workmanship evident on the grand oak staircase. Then take in the incredible decor of the Drawing Room, with its authentic oak panelling, and don’t miss the magnificent 17th-century fireplaces.
