Based in an Elizabethan house in the village of Narborough, Leicestershire, you’ll find the complete solution to all your gift buying challenges within a unique, inspirational environment. Behind the ancient exterior of Narborough Hall you’ll discover a browsers paradise, packed with gorgeous goodies which will become treasured gifts for your friends and family or a special treat for yourself.
You’re always sure of a warm welcome from our friendly and helpful team. Visit us and you’ll experience Narborough Hall’s truly special ambience, even with the huge variety of products the shop feels intimate, comfortable and cosy. The house has always been, and still is, a family home and the business was originally set up to fund the continuing restoration of the 400 year old listed building and that is still it’s primary role today.
When my parents, Wendy and Paul Broadley, bought the house in 1976 it had lain derelict for several years. They then faced the mammoth task of making the house liveable once again and creating a family home for myself and my sister Jessica, aged one and two at the time. After pouring money and energy into the house for two decades Wendy and Paul realised that, in order to safeguard the future of the building, it had to generate an income of it’s own. Wendy had a moment of inspiration and the idea of opening a shop and gallery was born. Little did they realise just how successful it would turn out to be. The shop first opened it’s doors in 1993 and in 1997 I took over with my husband, Simon. The business funds all the maintenance, repairs and running costs of the building so by shopping with us you are contributing directly to ensuring this local heritage asset is maintained for generations to come. We look forward to welcoming you to Narborough Hall.
