Kentwell Hall - Historic Tudor House, Gardens, Re-creations & Special Events

General Details

Kentwell Hall is Suffolk’s hidden gem and one of England’s finest Tudor houses that stands within the most extensive moat in the county and nearly 30 acres of formal gardens and grounds. 

The house 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. 

The house offers a relaxed environment, mixed with an individuality that is not often seen these days in great historic venues. 

Kentwell Hall’s organic gardens that extend to nearly 30 acres are today 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, the magnificent Cedar Trees that date back to the late 18th century including The Sculpted Tree, on the theme of the Tower of Babel, is the UK's biggest single wood carving

The house and gardens are often described as “magical with a surprise around every corner”. 

The Tea Rooms serve light lunches using seasonal produce from the gardens and farm.

Kentwell Hall is famous for producing some of the countries largest Re-creations and Family events that run throughout the year. 

Kentwell hosts weddings, corporate functions & meetings, team building and hospitality.
