Many National Trust properties are significantly larger than Oxburgh Hall but this relatively small property is extremely interesting. Sadly, it was allowed to suffer from under investment and in areas that shows, but by and large, it enables you to see and experience what life might have been like in the 1500s. Small people in small beds, in very cold... More

Not a large house & estate but very interesting -- a moated mansion with priest-hole. Very picturesque late afternoon. The winter aconite & snowdrops below the Aesculus were stunning. Good parking. Very small tea-room but all very civilised. Bring walking boots if it has been raining as not all the paths have been properly made-up. In many ways the house... More

Took a couple of visitors from the US to this out of the way attraction. Not easy to find this manor house which is an authentic unfussy 15th century house and recently renovated. Although not large the house is full of interesting exhibits including tapestries furniture and one of the few priest holes you can climb into if you are... More

A National Trust property near Kings Lynn, in the village of Oxborough. (note the spelling difference) It is surrounded by a moat and is a lovely red brick building. We went for the walk around to see the snowdrops and daffodils - a real sign of Spring! The walk along the small river is lovely; winter works having been done,... More

Do what? Turn their fortunes to dross! It seems as if almost every stately pile in England was prosperous at some point but then along came one of the clan who managed to lose the family fortune and leave someone else to pick up the pieces - eventually the National Trust, and I don't want the lecture about crippling death...

This is a lovely old historic place to visit and both the grounds and Hall with its water moat are very interesting. Its a good day out but can be a bit pricey (as are all National Trust properties) Tip: See if you can find out which day in the year the National Trust allows free entry to all its... More

Thank you for your kind comments about Oxburgh – we are glad to have delighted another visitor. Occasional worship does still take place in the Roman Catholic family chapel, although these occasions are by invitation and are formal religious services. National Trust visitors are also welcome to attend Mass on these occasions when they occur on our normal open days.... More

The setting of the house is stunning and the grounds around the Hall itself are well worth exploring. The Hall itself has some very interesting rooms to see and the National Trust guides in each room were very interesting and well informed. Definitely worth a visit if you are visiting North Norfolk.

The moated Oxborough Hall is well worth a visit. Not your standard National Trust, more,may I say, rustic, but all the better for it. The history, the Priest Hole, the roof view and the National Trust room guides make for a pleasant visit.

Considering this estate is part of The National Trust we were very disappointed. Hall and gardens were as you would expect. The Tea Rooms are just awful !! We had to queue in a narrow passage, pick refreshments from a piece of paper on the wall, then promptly pay before being allowed to sit in the restaurant. The room was... More
