We are not into historic buildings so this would seem an odd place for us to visit. However, if you enjoy walking through mature woodlands and finding lots of different natural things then this has to be one of the best places in Norfolk. Extensive grounds allow you to wander off the beaten track [which the dog-walkers seem to stick... More

We have visited this hall on numerous occasions over the years and still find enjoyment and more to discover. This is a 17thC Jacobean house with fine Georgian interior, set in a rolling landscape with a lake, large woodland with waymarked trails, walled garden, orangery and orchard. Food and drinks are available and there is a gift shop. A great... More

Reaching the house down a very long drive, the visit was a delight, the rooms well displayed and the helpful NT guides were a mine of information. Especially on how the house had been changed over the different generations. The gem was the walled garden, which even at the end of October was full of colour and interest.

The gardens are well worth a visit, even in October. Very interesting mix of old and new, and Great variation between the different areas. Large vegetable gardens which are worked allotment style by different people making for variety and interest. The formal flower borders in the pleasure gardens have a number of interesting collections and thoughtful layout. And the fruit... More

The Hall is very interesting and, typically of of the National Trust, it is well managed and has been thoughtfully and well restored. The guides, all volunteers I think, are among the best I've ever come across. They were well informed and enthusiastic in relating stories they must have told a thousand times. They were also interested in the tourists... More

House rather too dark in some rooms (especially the first two) but that seems all too common in these places, alas. Lovely gardens - do not miss. Also, well worth visiting the nearby church (hidden by trees across the field - opposite the garden) and make sure you (carefully) pull the coverings away to look at the mediaeval brasses underneath...

Felbrigg has a wonderful walled garden, one of the best we have ever seen. The house is beautifully preserved and the room guides are well-informed and full of anecdotes.
