Branston Hall

Branston Hall

Branston Hall is a country house in the Lincolnshire village of Branston. The hall was built between 1884 and 1886 and is set in 3.56 square kilometres (88 acres) of wooded parkland and lakes.

Originally commissioned as the family seat of the Melville family, the house became an RAF hospital during World War II, lay derelict in the 1970s and 1980s, underwent restoration and conversion into a luxury retirement home in the late 1980s, and has now been restored and converted into a popular hotel.
