Branston Hall is a country house in the village of Branston, Lincolnshire. The hall is a Grade II listed building,[1] and is set in 88 acres of wooded parkland and lakes.

Designed by John Macvicar Anderson in 1885, the house was built in Elizabethan Revival style.[1][2]

Originally commissioned as the family seat of the Melville family, the house became an RAF hospital during the Second World War, and then a sanatorium run by Lindsey County Council.[3][2][4]

The house lay derelict in the 1970s but in the late 1980s it underwent restoration and conversion into a retirement, and it is now restored and converted into a hotel.
