CHECK OUT this incredible 16th century stately home in Yorkshire that could play host to your very own Wuthering Heights experience after being used as a location in the 1992 re-make of Emily Brontë’s classic novel, starring Ralph Fiennes.
Broughton Hall is a seventeen-bedroom manor house located in the picturesque and sleepy village of Broughton, just south of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and has recently become available on the holiday rentals market for as little as £215 per night, per person.
This utterly breath-taking property sits within 3,000 acres of stunning grounds and is described as a grand and luxurious historic house, offering a unique destination, perfect for all occasions.
Images from the exterior reveal the true grandeur of the imposing yet beautiful building within its finely groomed grounds, that would without a doubt impress even the most exacting of guests.
In addition to the seventeen bedrooms and thirteen bathrooms that span much of the property’s first and second floors, photographs from inside also reveal some of the amazing features on the ground floor including the vast conservatory, 5,000 book library and Billiards room with full-sized table.
A representative at cottages.com said: “Broughton Hall is a stately home in every sense of the word, but it exudes ambience of homeliness and comfort throughout.
“You will have a wonderful experience at Broughton Hall whether you’re having a family reunion, celebrating a special occasion, wedding, or a summer holiday.”
Upon arrival guests can expect an impressive welcome via the spacious saloon before ascending the steps through the pillared column porch entrance to access the ground floor which also houses two drawing rooms, one of which was used in Peter Kosminsky’s take on Wuthering Heights, and a gallery room that is ideal for pre-dinner drinks.
A beautiful staircase leads to the first floor, where bedrooms one to twelve can be found and among their palatial features are a combination of four poster king-size beds, emperor beds, free standing roll-top baths and Murano glass chandeliers.
The equally luxurious bedrooms thirteen to seventeen, as well as a penthouse living room complete with Sky TV and games consoles complete the rest of the property on the second floor.
Broughton Hall is now in the hands of the 32nd generation of the Tempest family, in a line of custodians of the estate that incredibly dates back to the 11th century.
As may well be expected when in the lap of luxury, guests need not lift a finger during their stay, whether it be stoking the fire, making the bed or mealtimes, there is always staff on hand to cater to your every need.
Guests can also take advantage of the 3,000 surrounding acres at their disposal, whether it be a wander through the delightful and intricate gardens, along the river that runs through the grounds or a game of tennis in the private courts, there’s more than enough to keep everyone entertained.
If you wanted to venture away from the estate, there are lovely country treks just outside the grounds as well as a local pub just a stone’s throw away. Alternatively, why not take a ride deep into the dales for something more off-piste.
Whatever you decide to do, Broughton Hall, as one of Britain’s most luxurious holiday rentals is guaranteed to be a stay never to forget.
