Kentwell Hall


Kentwell Hall is one of England's finest Tudor houses, developed in stages between about 1500 and 1578. To reach Kentwell you will drive nearly a mile along an avenue of lime trees. The house has a full moat, and is reached by two original bridges. The Hall is a very much lived-in and loved family home, something it has been for centuries. An ongoing and non-stop restoration project is in place to bring the house and gardens back to their original form. The project includes the creation of a rare breeds farm with horses, sheep, cattle and donkeys. The gardens are completely organic and include a ha-ha, a wildlife pond, a walled garden with a lavender maze and more than 60 varieties of apple and pear trees. There are many special events throughout the year, which are detailed on the Hall's website. Photo credit: kitchen - Paul Coghlin
