The Venue

The historic Broughton Hall is situated in some of the most stunning countryside in Yorkshire and is set within 3,000 acres of secure and extensive landscaped grounds.

The estate has been nurtured by the Tempest family for over 900 years and is still the family home. The grade 1 listed building dates back to 1597 with later Palladian additions and beautiful formal gardens. Close by are many historic buildings ranging from The Home Farm, The Saw Mill to The Water Mill and Stable Courtyard, which have now been converted into the Broughton Hall Business Park where over 50 companies are based. There are also 40 houses including the small hamlet of Broughton, The Bull Inn public house and a beautifully restored Walled Garden by Dan Pearson and the Utopia building by Sir Michael Hopkins. The diversification into offices has proved successful and the Estate has won numerous national awards over recent years.

Woodlands, rivers, dales, historic architecture and closeness to Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield, makes it an ideal sanctuary for The Magic Loungeabout for all those wanting to escape to the country.
