Free for members but think it's pricy otherwise. Lovely grounds- both gardens, veg patches and fields to walk round. Interesting house and sometimes have special events which are worth looking out for. Cafe is alright but is quite limited and pricy (as are all national trust cafes). Pub across the road is pretty good though.

Visited to see the snowdrops. No particular order to where they are planted. Gardens could do with some attention. However the main building is a delight. Normally I'm not a fan of old buildings but the history of this one was very interesting.

This place is so lovely, great views from the top (if you can manage the spiral stairs). Very knowledgeable staff who told us some interesting facts. The priest hole is a must see. We did the 2 mile woodland walk, really nice, gorgeous snowdrops everywhere! Even found a geocache in Oxburgh. Highly recommend visiting.

A wonderful place to visit with such rich history dating back to the Tudor times. Make sure you can take the time to visit the Priest's hole, a surprising experience where priests hid from fear of being arrested and hung because they were catholic. Religious arguments still ongoing!! A great place for kids as it is very free flow and... More

Well worth a visit on a good day to get the benefit of the grounds. I would make sure you have 3 hours before closing time. For someone who gets bored quiet quickly I found the building very interesting. The staff were very helpful and informative. If you are reasonably agile the priest hole is worth a visit. I intend...

We had a most enjoyable time walking through the woodland and grounds around Oxburgh. There were many points of interest along the walk, certainly the intriguing design of the house being key! The tea room was sweet, providing some rather delicious scones! It was however a pity that there was so little information available about the house and its history.

One of the intriguing things about Oxburgh Hall is that it sits on the edge of the Fens in the middle of nowhere. That remoteness many have been its salvation. Built during the turbulent Wars of the Roses, despite appearances (moat, gatehouse etc.), Oxburgh Hall was always intended as a family home rather than as a castle. It was completed... More

popped in for a few hours. House was amazing as were the grounds/. worth a visit Easy parking and lovely coffee and cake in the cafe; As you arrive in the cafe a staff member takes your order then your shown to your tble.

We went there before Christmas. It is set in a quiet village, away from the hectic cities and towns. The house is very atmospheric. We were fortunate to attend a performance of the volunteers choir, in the Chapel, lovely voices and lovely carols. We would happily return to see it in a different season.
