The Brownber Estate

Brownber House is the new addition to the Brownber Estate, elegantly decorated and beautifully renovated, the perfect retreat for a family getaway or friends gathering in Yorkshire.



Peter and Amanda took over as the custodians of the Hall in 2016, and have been slowly and carefully reimagining aspects of the building ever since. This is absolutely key to the feel of the place, Brownber is absolutely of the moment, rustic, various, sweet, fun. Proper thought has been applied to the interiors giving the property its own unique style, a mixture of vintage, reclaimed, handmade and reupholstered furniture, with contemporary pieces. Masses of books, prints, photographs, rugs. Softly sanded floor boards. Beautiful William Morris wallpaper kept from the Hall’s previous incarnations.

When you arrive at Brownber you immediately feel a sense of freedom. As you walk across the expansive terrace to the entrance you are greeted with the most spectacular views of the fields and fells and you know that this is going to be a very special place to stay.
