The promise of English elegance

Boasting the same English elegance as Brideshead, Broadstone Court is nestled in the stunning rural idyll that is the Herefordshire countryside. Gather your folks or hens together and invade the games room. 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. Nestled 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.

Living spaces

Welcome to the world of sympathetic renovation. The house might be 14th century and groaning under the weight of its heritage features, but it comes with all the mod cons you’d want for contemporary living. Relax in the luxurious lap of wood-panelled walls, exposed beams and cosy open fires.

In the evenings, pick a lounge – any lounge – raid the stack of logs, and get the wood burning and the chatter flowing over drinks. Or head to the snug to bond over movies, matches or box sets. Raid the DVDs, play your sounds through the soundbar or get competitive on the Playstation.

The library’s great not just for burying yourself in a book on the Chesterfield, but also for pulling a cue from the rack and potting some pool balls. Need more fun and games? A second playroom sits above the bar. Play a little ping-pong, let the kids loose in the play area or settle back in the cinema area with DVDs.

Broadstone offers the chance to relax in the lap of luxury, among the people who matter the most. Get them all together, slip away in small groups, or duck out for a little me time. Reception rooms here are fun, flexible affairs lit by log fires and warmed by the glow of good company.

Cooking and dining

Herefordshire is a crucible of culinary delights. The rich land gives up some of the finest fare in the country, from Herefordshire beef to cider and apple juice, and from Monkland cheese to Chase gin and vodka. Even Tyrrell’s crisps, well-known for leaving their jackets on, are a product of the superior local potatoes.

Head out and about to take a tour and taste the local wine at the Three Choirs Vineyard and Black Mountain Vineyard. What will you be washing down? Maybe Beef Wellington followed by cider cake prepared in the double oven with electric fan and five-burner hob with electric induction.

Is the oak panelled dining room big enough? We think so. It can comfortably seat up to 26 alongside the huge stone fireplace, while the breakfast-room table is good for small parties of eight to ten. You’ll get six to eight around the kitchen table, enough to chat with happily as you chop. Want to eat outdoors? Head out to the terrace for the clay pizza oven.

Taking it easy? Let AtoZest do the heavy lifting, with everything from formal dining to drop-offs. Ortuck into some pub grub at England’s Gate just five minutes away, or at gastro-pub The Stockton Cross 10 minutes away, The Bell at Tillington or The Cider Barn at Pembridge. Head into Hereford for posh nosh at The Bookshop, Cotto or En BBQ.

I hired this beautiful house as part of my husband’s 40th birthday celebrations and we were absolutely blown away. Each room is perfect and the gardens are so so pretty. I was obsessed with all the interior and décor! Frances, Alex and family really have thought of everything to make your stay so special. There is even a bar so obviously that was a welcomed bonus. I 100% know I will be back. Frances was incredible from the moment I booked answering all my questions and offering so many welcomed recommendations. They have put their heart and soul into this place and it really shows. Thank you so much guys. - Claire, November 2022
We had a fantastic weekend, thank you. We all loved the house. It’s so perfectly renovated, it must have taken a huge amount of thought and effort. Every room is lovely. - James, November 2022
What an amazing place. We have had the most special 60th and 6th birthday celebrations. Everything was above and beyond. Hopefully we will be back soon. - Valerie, October 2022
Thank you so much for this beautiful experience. The house and the gardens are so amazing and special. All three generations had a wonderful time. There is truly something magical in the air here. Hope to return one day. - Aaron, August 2022
We had the most brilliant weekend staying here in this magical place for Grannie’s 80th birthday. It was lovely to have the family reunion in such a relaxed environment – the hot tub was definitely a highlight. We all loved chatting and catching up around the firepit and enjoying games of croquet. Broadstone Court is a beautiful place and one I think many of us would hope to visit again. Many memories were made so thank you very much for allowing us to have such a wonderful stay. - Bernard, July 2022
We have had an amazing weekend. Words cannot express how fantastic the house and your hospitality has been. Memories have been made. Thank you so much. And also, a big thank you to Frances who couldn’t have been more helpful during the planning process. - Chloe, April 2022
What an amazing place! Stayed here with some friends for a chilled weekend. Everything you could want/need with amazing amenities but with so much authentic charm. Loved the wood fireplaces and all the bathrooms/bedrooms were modern. The bar is super fun too! Little tip - we got some eggs from "lloyds luscious eggs" farm just a few houses down the lane...deeeelicious! Perfect house for a getaway. - Nick, January 2022
Amazing Christmas break with all the family. Perfect venue for meeting up with everyone, both children and adults loved it. The house is amazing as is in all the pictures and doesn’t disappoint. Couldn’t recommend more. - Sue, December 2021
We had the most amazing family get together here. The house was perfect well equipped for big family dinners. Cosy fires to sit around the games room was perfect for teenagers and the bedrooms were beautiful. Thank you for a lovely weekend. - Laraine, November 2021
We had a long weekend here for my 50th birthday with 3 other families, with a range of ages of teenagers and young adults. We all had a fabulous time - the bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely and immediately made people feel they were having a real treat from the moment they took their things up. The big living/dining rooms with real fires (ready laid for us) were great and the kitchen and house were perfectly equipped for a big group with lots of fridge/freezer/oven space and large pots, pans and serving dishes - important if you are cooking for 18! We enjoyed using the outdoor pizza oven and fire pits and the pool table and croquet lawn were particularly popular. Wouldn't look anywhere else if I was booking a special occasion for the same size group again. - Sarah, October 2021
Wow - what an amazing place! Set in beautiful grounds with 9 bedrooms, this was the perfect place for our multi-generation 4-night family gathering. The beds were very comfy, the bathrooms newly renovated and the owners couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. They provided highchairs, kids beds and a room full of toys for the little ones, and some fizz for the older ones :) The highlight of our week was the outdoor pizza oven night - thank you so much Frances and Alex for everything you did to make our stay here so special - you made our 9,000 mile round trip worth every penny. - Karen, September 2021
We spent 3 days at this amazing property enjoying a family get together. Broadstone Court is absolutely stunning, tastefully decorated and plenty big enough to accommodate the 14 of us, but at the same time it still felt homely and cosy. All our needs were catered for, communication with Frances throughout the booking process was second to none, and both she and Alex were very friendly and welcoming. We would not hesitate to recommend this venue for a staycation in such a beautiful part of the country, and we hope to return ourselves. Thank you so much Frances and Alex! - Helen, August 2021
