Ladbroke Hall is an 18th-century country house, now converted into residential apartments, situated at Ladbroke, near Southam, Warwickshire, England. It is a Grade II listed building.

The Ladbroke estate was the home of the Palmer family having been purchased by William Palmer in 1633. The present house was built in a Georgian style in the 18th century. It was designed to an H-shaped plan, the entrance frontage being two storeyed with gabled attics, and seven bays, the three central bays recessed.

In 1825, a later William Palmer of Ladbroke inherited the Derbyshire estate of his aunt Helen Morewood at Alfreton Hall and took the surname Palmer-Morewood. His grandson Charles Rowland Palmer-Morewood was High Sheriff of Derbyshire in 1871 and of Warwickshire in 1880. The 1881 British Census discloses his residence on the 360-acre (1.5 km2) estate with a retinue of thirteen servants.
