Felbrigg Hall, Gardens & Estate (NT) 04-06-2012

One of the most elegant country houses in East Anglia.

 

Truly a hidden gem, the Hall is a place of surprises and delights, a mixture of opulence and homeliness where each room has something to feed the imagination.

Outside, the decorative and productive walled garden is a gardener's delight, providing fruit and vegetables for the restaurant, flowers for the hall and inspiration.

The rolling landscape park with a lake, 211 hectares (520 acres) of woods and waymarked trails is a great place to explore the nature and wildlife on this bountiful estate.

It boasts a fine gothic style library and a magnificent collection of Grand Tour paintings.

The house, its contents, and estate was left to the National Trust by Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer, the last Squire of Felbrigg Hall, who died in 1969.

 

The Walled Garden at Felbrigg Hall is widely renowned as one of East Anglia's finest. Get up close to the double borders and herb beds and really breathe in the scent of lavender, sage and mint. You can find a good many modern surprises within this traditionally laid out garden.
