Set in the Marches close to the Herefordshire/Shropshire border, there has been a community on the site since the Bronze Age and evidence of a mediaeval house still remain within the cellars. Broadward appears in the deeds of Clungunford as early as 1658, but the present Regency Gothic front has been much altered over the years. Set in its rolling parkland estate, the Hall has a romantic, picturesque appearance with its battlements and crenellations, decorative glazing bars and gothic windows. The River Clun runs through the land and the estate has a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) with herons, otters, Lapwing and much more on the estate including Red Kite nesting in the woods. Deer and polecats are occasionally seen.
The Hall is Georgian (Regency) Grade II listed, with a Victorian Pump House and Walled Garden. 510m east of Broadward Hall there is a Motte Castle which is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. In the 19th Century, an important Bronze Age hoard (of spearheads and arrow heads) was found at Broadward Hall; this is now in the British Museum.
The lovely Shropshire Hills form a panoramic backdrop on the Welsh borders.
The Historic walled garden is under renovation during 2012.
