Owner description: A moated fortified manor house, about 2 miles west of Banbury. Built in 1300 and then later added to in 1550, the Castle had strong links with the Parliamentary side in the English Civil War (1642-51). Still a family home, Broughton Castle is lived in by Lord & Lady Saye & Sele of the Fiennes family. Beautiful formal garden and park, particularly during the summer months. Public open days will resume from the beginning of April 2017 (2pm - 5pm Wednesdays and Sundays). We are open for group tours at any time of the year by appointment. We have a recently refurbished tea room offering light lunches and delicious afternoon teas,

Great place to visit on a wet afternoon if you are interested in historical houses + with excellent guides in each room. We spent so long in the castle/house we did not manage to visit the cafe! It is only open on certain days and times, so do check before visiting.

A lovely fortified manor house that you want to live in. Still occupied by the owners, who also act as room stewards. The gardens are also lovely, surrounded by the moat. Great tea rooms too.

I first visited here for a charity dog walk in October 2017. I have lived in the area for a couple of years and had no idea this place was on my doorstep!
You are allowed to wander the grounds but be aware they graze cattle so you need to keep dogs on leads until you hit the footpaths away from them.
The castle looks stunning with its moat and gardens.

Broughton Castle is a truly lovely place to visit, a typical moated house with lovely grounds and gardens. Full of history and good cafe to make your visit complete.

Broughton park and the surrounding countryside is great for dog walking and never too muddy either which is great!
