This is a really well preserved building and contents. Its a absolute jem to explore and my favorite find being letters sent from Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, I do not want spoil it by going into too much detail about everything but keep an eye out for the wall paper in the downstairs hall, its pretty special. The attendants... More

A lovely old hall built in 1482, it has lots of history, not least the modern day tales of its redeemers, inhabitants and debts! We liked it because it is a smaller house and although its probably lower down the pecking order than some of the grander English stately homes it has so much to offer. Everyone there was so... More

Oxburgh Hall near Kings Lynn is a beautiful old Manor House that is still occupied by ancestors of the original owners, which makes the house interior and artefacts very interesting. The house is surrounded by a moat, and has many original architectural features, the embossed, colourful leather paneling is unique. The parterre and gardens are lovely, and one fascinating and...

Excellent building and grounds dating back to at least the 1400's. Really nice staff in all areas including the grounds, entrance, shops and café. Food was lovely. Would recommend this place to anyone. Lots of history and one of the better preserved buildings in the country. We really enjoyed our day out. We are members of the national trust so... More

This National Trust (NT) property has a wonderful Tudor gatehouse that reminds you of those in Cambridge colleges like Queens' & St John's. The moat is still full providing excellent reflections. The Bedingfeld family have lived there since 1482. As the family is Catholic there is an exciting priest's hole which can be entered. There are also some interesting Tudor... More

A fantastic moated house dating from the fifteenth century. Really interesting interior. The gardens looked lovely but it was a shame it rained most of the afternoon.

This is a beautiful house with an equally beautiful garden. I have taken my all my children here for years. They have events taking you back to Tudor times where you can experience what life was like. If you get a chance, go when they have an historical experience is on, don't miss it!

A very beautiful setting for this National Trust property: moated house with plenty of opportunities for walks in the extensive, part-wooded, grounds. Interior is presented in an interesting way, with contrast between the gloomier Victorian style areas and the lighter medieval rooms upstairs. Pleasant tearoom with lovely cakes and snacks.

As you enter through gate in the walled garden the property really looks stunning. It seems in first class order and very liveable! As is usual with the National Trust, the volunteers are outstanding and cannot wait to help, advise and inform. Where do they find these wonderful people. Having visited dozens of properties we were fascinated by the layout,... More
