As early as the fourteenth century, 'De Hoff ten Bramel' occurs. The name Bramel seems to be a composition of the words 'bramble' and 'loo', a forest where brambles grow. The present house dates from the 17th century and was built partly on the cellars of its older predecessor. At that time, the country estate consisted of mansion, courts, land, woods and two farmsteads named Groot and Klein Bramel. In the second half of the nineteenth century the house was rebuilt and expanded several times. Around 1880 the teahouse was built. The neo-Gothic style facade also dates from this time. Behind it is still the 17th-century entrance. Above the pointed arch frieze is a needle spire with a weathervane. Underneath is a dial with the inscription "Hof toe Bramel".

House Den Bramel and the teahouse have recently been restored. The house and gardens are privately owned and not open to the public, but the park is open to the public.
