Brackenborough Hall is a Grade II* listed building dating from the 17th century, with later alterations and additions, and built of red brick, which is open to the public. It is likely that it replaced an older building, and according to Lincolnshire Archives it was referred to in 1856 as "an ancient moated farmhouse". The stable block has been converted into holiday flats. In the grounds of the Hall is a Grade II listed Folly dating from 1863, built for James Robson, using building material from nearby Fotherby church, which was demolished the same year.
