A Jewel in the Crown of the Forest of Bowland
The oldest surviving family home in Lancashire www.browsholme.com
Browsholme Hall, pronounced 'Brewsom', is an historic house and the ancestral home of the Parker Family, Bowbearers of the Forest of Bowland, Lancashire, who have lived there since it was built in 1507. Tudor in origin, Browsholme has a remarkable antiquarian collection, superb oak chests, furniture by Gillow, portraits, mementos of Bonnie Prince Charlie, Chinese porcelain, arms and armour from the Civil War and many unusual relics such as a fragment of a Zeppelin.
Browsholme is very much a family home, set in the beautiful Hodder Valley and few miles from Clitheroe, with landscaped garden, lake and woodland walks. The current owners Robert and Amanda Parker invite day visitors, groups and coach tours to share their home for guided tours and special events at the Tithe Barn.
All visitors are conducted around the house by guided tour lasting approximately 1 hour. The tour comprises main hall, library, regency drawing room, portrait gallery, ante room, yellow room and oak parlour.
Coach tours and groups are welcome throughout the year by appointment where light refreshments in the Tithe Barn can be arranged. Casual visitors have an opportunity to visit the Hall on days during the summer months and also to a new calendar of special events including garden, craft and food fairs, musical and theatrical performances.
