Charlotte Bridgeman's Journals

February 1846 - January 1857

Linked with Lady Charlotte

Castle Bromwich

Although Weston was the main seat of the Bridgemans during Lady Charlotte’s time, they also spent several months each year at Castle Bromwich. After being away in Scotland Charlotte is glad to be back when she writes: “I am very glad to find myself here again. Dear old Castle Bromwich. I stepped into bed as soon as I could.”

She also loved the gardens at Castle Bromwich and of course the archery that was often held in the gardens.

Nowadays Castle Bromwich is a hotel: Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel . We stayed the night there last summer while travelling from Devon to the Lake District. It was a pleasant stay which we can recommend.

The gardens of Castle Bromwich are managed by Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens Trust. The gardens are well worth a visit .
