Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Local regular user of Brougham Hall, nice to see food & drink open once again selection of a reasonable offering, homemade below standard for what you would expect for a new place rather on the expensive side, own supplies for next visit.

The ONLY consideration given to disabled access is a a disabled parking space. The web site (to date) has no access statement to guide disabled people. The paths are a mix of gravel, old stone and cobbles. the transitions between the different materials in height and texture caused wheel spin of my electric wheel chair. The only toilet is up 3 large steps. My electric wheelchair would not cope with the paths and kept digging itself into the gravel. Most of the craft areas within view had steps in. I can't say anything about the inside access. The path up to the toilet in my opinion is dangerous for wheelchair users and wobbly walkers alike. this place is a classic example of history taking precedence over modern needs. For disabled people this site is an accident in waiting.

We went to do a circular walk from the hall, as described on a leaflet from the Penrith Tourist Office, and to be recommended as long as you don't mind the hum of traffic from the A66.

We found that the cafe was 'in between' but an enterprising outfit called Hairy Collie (guess what the logo might be!) are providing a pop-up kiosk on Wednesdays and Fridays. Very limited choice from the back of a van, but a proper espresso machine and a selection of home bakes, which was all that we wanted. Super-pleasant owner. Tables out in the courtyard so very dog friendly.

I last visited here back in 2019, & there definitely has been improvements. There are various shops, from a craft shop, to a pottery shop, & an art shack, with a gallery coming soon. Also coming soon is a distillery shop. Other than the shops, there is a cafe, toilets & of course, there is plenty to explore!

Atmospheric location and cafe is the best pub in Penrith with small batch local ales. Good base for circular walk exploring henge monuments, river and castle.

This is a fortified farmhouse built into the outer walls which surround the large mound where the Hall is sited. There are some interesting medieval parts within the walls and there is a large area of grass with some seating. The Eden4Cafe served wonderful homemade food and excellent coffee. Toilets are also available.

There are artisan shops buried within the walls selling some very interesting and unusual local items.

Just outside the ancient gate is St Wilfrid's church. A plain building but when I went had the most wonderful Rhododendrons in bloom.

Wonderful gem: stunning setting for a range of craft shops, ceramics and pottery being truly stunning. We ordered food from cafe4eden (delicious) and were able to explore / buy whilst the team prepared it fresh. Very much worth the trip (hour each way for us) and highly recommended.

We encounted Brougham (pronounced Broom as we were told several times) HAll, quite by accident when looking for a lunch stop. This is a set of craft studios within the ruins of the Hall curtilage. We found the cafe to be exceptionally good and were delighted to find "Stone Soup" on the menu - a happy reference to a much loved children's story in our family. It was made with all the seasonal vegetables available but the menu aslo contained some other interesting dishes. The cafe is run by Cafe4Eden which supports people with learning disabilities, and which we were very happy to feel that we were supporting too.

The rest of the area is populated by a variety of craft workshops including pottery, jewellry and an artist.

My only slight reservation is that the surfaces underfoot are quite rough and uneven as there is much work going on to restore the various parts, so some people may find access difficult.

The Church which features in our 1000 best churches book was sadly not open and looked to be in a poor state of repair. Its grounds however were well kept and appeared to be open for burials judging by the dates on the tombstones.
