Broadfield has a long and illustrious history in the county, having been mentioned in the Domesday book. At that time, it was likely just a large acreage of land, but by the fourteenth century it had become a house of importance, complete with its own private chapel.
By the Tudor period it had fallen into disrepair, but was given a new lease of life as a large farmhouse, incorporating the portion of the still beautiful fourteenth century building still standing. Fast forward to 1825, and once more the house needed some restoration, and was extended and converted into a Gothic mansion with gargoyles, coats of arms, finials and stucco.
Now, in the 21st century, we have restored Broadfield once more, keeping nearly 1,000 years of history going.
