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.

This is an amazing place to have a family picnic (picnic tables located next to car park) then walk over to the church or if you have time walk around the lake for the cost of the car park fee!

We visited the hall and it was interesting but the walled garden was even better for those of us who are keen gardeners, however they did not really seem to be clear as the gardens are accessed from the car park away from the board that suggest you are starting the visit to the hall. A must for gardeners.

Felbrigg is lovely house with a fascinating history. The guides were friendly and informative. However the restaurant is poor with quiche and salad being the only main dish on offer. Nothing hot apart from soup. Very poor compared to other NT restaurants eg at Blickling Hall.

Lovely house. You were given a booklet about the house and the people who had owned it to read on your way round, which was very helpful. The staff and the guides were very informative and very helpful.

Having visited the house first we came out feeling a bit non plus about it,however when we found the walled gardens we suddenly found the wow factor! This is absolutely beautiful, wild but uniformed, everything seemed to fit and have a place including the chickens! This visit in Sept may have been late in the season but only encouraged to... More

As always you can't fault the NT Felbrigg is not a large house and was lived in by the owner into the 60s. It has a homely charm and is the sort of place you could imagine living in. Lovely walled gardens with chickens running around. As with all NT visits lots of very helpful staff with a wealth of... More

The parkland is extensive and affords miles of peaceful and beautiful walks.. Parking prices are very reasonable and the café and Nat Trust shops are excellent. We had a great day out and will return in the future.
