We arrived when the house was opening, and on this particular day we were treated to a guided tour around the gardens. The guide was a very well informed man who gave us lots of information. After an hour of exploring the garden, we then visited the house and enjoyed what we saw. The house has a moat around it... More

A lovely day out for someone who does not know the area. The hall is very picturesque standing inside it's moat. The interior reflects its age well, the Victorian renovations being dark and gloomy and the older parts lighter and brighter. Downstairs my favourite spots are the fireplace where some tiles have been put in wrongly - an indication to... More

This was my first visit and I was very impressed. There is so much to see and learn about the family who lived there. Lots of different rooms in a terrific building. Shame we didn't spend time looking round the grounds. Good to see the moat. Also we had an excellent scone and pot of tea in the restaurant before... More

We stopped in here on our way up to Old Hunstanton and had a very memorable visit. The tour of the house was interesting, especially the Priest's Hole!, and the gardens are lovely in Spring.

Excellent moated house full of history including letters from Henry VIII about his first wife Catherine. Go up onto the roof for magnificent views. Lovely gardens and good restaurant in the house

A very interesting National Trust property. The staff were very helpful, friendly and able to answer questions about the Hall much better than "average" when you go to NT properties. The Hall has a priest hole in the ground which you are able to go in if you dare!!! Also the brick staircase is exceptional.

A lovely National Trust property, really worth a visit. Highlights are the tapestry done by Mary, Queen of Scots and the priest hole is so interesting. The priest hole is maybe only for the brave and fit! The stairs up to the roof are steep but well worth it for the view.

This is a national trust property really worth visiting. A very unusual family story and lots to see and do. Don't miss the still functioning Priest's hole, one of the few remaining in the country. Lots to see in the house and the staff were all extremely helpful especially the young lady responsible for the upkeep of many of the... More
