Details

Kentwell Hall has a history that dates back to the 1500’s and despite its size has a relaxed, informal feel, and mixed with an individuality created by its current owners, that is not often seen these days in great historic venues.

Kentwell Hall offers the visitor a journey through time from the Great Tudor Kitchen, the Gothic centre block to the State bedroom that was created by Thomas Hopper in the 1820s for a visit from the then Duke of York.

There are many stunning and important works of art including 14th century pictures, tapestries and a magnificent stain glass window.

The second floor includes the Chinese Room and the Emperor’s Concubine’s gown covered with gold thread, and the Victorian Room (also known as the Haunted Room), with beautiful French wall paper that dates back to the 1820’s and a chair that was used at Queen Victoria’s coronation.

Kentwell Hall’s organic gardens are a combination of ancient features, elements of the substantial alterations of Lady Guthrie, tenant during the 1930s, and the recent landscaping and planting by the current owners.

Particular areas of interest include the formal walled garden with its glorious borders providing seasonal displays of colour, the wildlife meadows and the Pied Piper Topiary hedge.

Whilst the magnificent Cedar Trees that date back to the late 18th century provide a lovely backdrop and The Sculpted Tree, based on the theme of the Tower of Babel, is the UK's biggest single wood carving.

The Stable Yard Tea Rooms serve light lunches and afternoon tea using seasonal produce from the gardens and farm.

Free on-site car parking.
