Architectural Building Historic Site
Benthall Hall is a 16th-century English country house located in Benthall close to the town of Broseley, Shropshire, England, and a few miles from the historic Ironbridge Gorge. It retains much of its fine oak interior, and an elaborate 17th-century staircase. It is still occupied by the Benthall family, but has been owned by the National Trust since 1958, and is open to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holliday Monday (February -October).The Hall was built around 1580, probably on the site of an earlier 12th-century medieval manor and manor house. During the Civil War it was garrisoned, and was a site of several skirmishes.The garden is largely the product of two tenants. George Maw (1832 - 1912), local pottery manufacturer and crocus enthusiast developed the garden from around 1865 onwards. Subsequently, the Victorian era Romantic painter and sculptor Robert Bateman (1842 - 1922), who was the son of a famous horticulturalist, added the rockeries and terraces of the current garden.

  • Nice quaint National Trust house near Ironbridge. Knowledgeable guides, small but busy tearoom with outside seating. GLUTEN AND DAIRY FREE OPTIONS available. Walks around the grounds and park. Challenging for disabled ♿, especially wheelchairs, and no disabled ♿ loo .
  • Would've preferred more options in the tea room for a little more substantial food than cake. Lovely setting though. Peaceful walk from much wenlock to Ironbridge like. Worth a mini stop
  • Really nice, great tearoom
  • Nice stately home .. Lovely gardens and surrounding walks ..
  • Very surprised, this is a lovely place to visit in a nice setting, lovely little tearoom with nice staff
