Kentwell Hall, House, Gardens, Farm & Special Events - an Historic Tudor Mansion

Kentwell Hall is one of England’s finest Tudor houses, developed in stages between about 1500 and 1578. To reach Kentwell you will drive 3/4 mile along an avenue of Lime trees. The house is fully moated and reached by two original bridges.

The house is not a stately home but a very much lived-in and loved family home, something it has been for over 500 years.

It is also a project - for 35 years now, a non-stop effort to save this beautiful house, re-create its gardens and form a traditional style farm with rare breeds, including the Suffolk Punch (horse), Norfolk Horn Sheep, Long Horn and British White Cattle and the Baudet du Poitou Donkey; less than 60 in the UK and 800 in the world.

The gardens at Kentwell Hall are a combination of ancient features, landscaping and planting. The gardens include the main front lawns with a HA HA and wildlife pond, The Walled Garden with a maze of Lavender and a wonderful range of Herbs and Potage, also has in excess of 60 different varieties of Apple and Pear trees.

One sight not to be missed is the ancient Yew trees with a modern hedge of ‘Pied Piper’ topiary.

Kentwell Hall is home to many special events throughout the year; Tudor re-enactment weeks, Kentwell through the Ages, Magical Weekends and the award winning ‘Scaresville’. Plus musical and outdoor shows.

A fantastic venue with so much to see and do and that all the family will enjoy.
