About Broomhouse

The area now known as Broomhouse was part of the Goswick Estate in the early 15th Century owned by Thomas Swinhoe, it is not clear when Broomhouse came into existence. The first mention was in the will of William Swinhoe, son of Thomas, dated 1623 as Broomhouse Manor. Now owned by Lord and Lady Joicey , Ford and Etal Estate we are the proud custodians and want to share it with as many people as we can.

Sadly we do not have any maps showing the floor plan but know the current house has been added to and changed over time, with the last addition being the front porch and bay window added in 1857.

Sitting in approximately 2 acres of grounds, from lawns, to walled garden to small wooded areas Broomhouse has the space to be used for many things. A fabulous firepit with seating for 30 or so, chairs dotted through the grounds, summer houses and bird hides. There is such a lovely feel to the space, relaxing and welcoming, the noise of the main road is barely heard over the birdsong.

Public footpaths take you to the beaches at Goswick and Cheswick, or across to Haggerston. Walks around the farm land, find badger tracks, deer and many birds, some lovely spots for a quiet picnic.

The use of Broomhouse and its grounds is only limited by your imagination and the place seems to come alive when it is full of people.
