Her's what English heritage has to say about it:
Time really does stand still at Brodsworth Hall, one of the most unusual visitor attractions in South Yorkshire.
Inside this beautiful Victorian country house almost everything has been left exactly as it was when it was still a family home. Possessions that took more than 130 years to gather together, from the grandest piece of furniture to family mementoes and humble domestic items, are still in their original places.
Meanwhile the beautiful grounds, a collection of grand gardens in miniature, have been restored to their full Victorian splendour, and feature a colourful array of seasonal displays.
With its new children’s play area, Brodsworth Hall is the ideal choice for a family day out in Doncaster.
The weather has been perfect this weekend, so off we went with our picnic to Brodsworth.
Geoff took Reuben and Rosanna to the upstairs rooms where there are lots of toys linked to the history of the house. This left Me and the girls with lots of time to look around the house and ask questions. The thing that is so magical about Brodsworth hall, is that you see it how it was lived in until 1988. So there are expensive ornaments and seaside trinkets side-by-side!
We tried to spot all the modern items around the house. I was really impressed with the questions the girls asked and the things they spotted. In the bedroom they spotted some French magazines, they asked about them and found out they were the fashionable magazine of the 1960's.
We had a wonderful day out, I'm looking forward to returning when the bluebells are out.
