Went yesterday afternoon for a walk around the gardens- the maze which should be the crowning glory needs looking after- uncut bushes- the central wooden structure peeling and needing painting- grass uncut and broken steps leading up to the middle- the rest of the gardens could also do with looking after.

Having lived near by for years I had kept meaning to visit.We opted for the garden tour and have to say we really enjoyed our few hours there.Not as big as I imagined but still a lovely place.We had our own picnic but the cafe looked nice.Next time we would pay the extra and tour the house.

We had a very warm welcome with our 2 year old from the lady at the entrance and also in the coffee shop. We preceded to have a lovely day in the grounds but the day was ruined by how we were treated at the house tour. Our little girl was not naughty or loud but as with children her... More

This Hall and its gardens is one of the best I have seen. The hall is still used as a family home and this is reflected by the wonderful condition and collection of family photos and items on display. As is usual with a family home, not all rooms are in the tour but what is open is well worth... More

I visited Somerleyton Hall with my husband. We had the guided tour of the house which was very interesting. Unlike other country homes you have to have the tour, you cannot walk around alone, but I preferred this. The gardens were gorgeous and very relaxing to wander around. A real gem of a place.

Beautiful gardens. Stunning views. Especially liked the formal parterre and white garden. Thought we would never get out of the maze. I agree with others that entering via the shop and then the cafe makes both too busy.

Free parking, Started with the cake which was excellent, certainly homemade. The gardens were something else, some ancient trees and landscape work, plus the proper Maze was great fun. The house tour guide was well informed and clearly had a passion for the house. A quality afternoon was had by both of us.

Looking forward to a day out with 4 generations, from 9 months to 83 years old, our visit wasn't as relaxing as I'd hoped. While the house and gardens are pleasant and the two ladies conducting the tour of the house were excellent, the layout of the cafe and service were terrible. First of all, having the main entrance thoroughfare... More
