My husband and I are National Trust Members and so do take full advantage of our membership so on Saturday afternoon we were in Norfolk and visited Felbrigg Hall. The house is very interesting and the volunteers in every room are able to offer interesting information which makes the house come alive. They are also diplomatic and are as happy to let you look around quietly as they are to share their knowledge.
The walled garden was lovely and we were surprised to see chickens, peacocks and guinea fowl.
The grounds are huge and we did not have time to explore or sadly to have a cup of tea, but we will return!

Headed here to walk the dog and enjoy a walk. Well managed gardens and a variety of landscpaes provided an excellent afternoon. A lovely mixture of woodland, fields and lakes.

Cafe was well stocked with local produce, and provided a much needed hot drink after a cold April afternoon.

Gift shop was ok, although lacking in original ideas.

Having been to Holkham hall only a few days earlier its fair to say that as beautiful as Felbrigg is, it certainly does lack in some areas. There were not many activities/events being advertised or encouraged.

We visited on a very sunny (but freezing) Easter weekend and it helped the hall and grounds look very nice, even though it was a bit early for most of the flowers to come out. We took our child to do the nursery rhyme treasure hunt, and the mid-hunt egg and spoon race and after we collected the easter hunt prize we enjoyed the many activities they had put on for the kids!

We then escaped the cold to go into the house which was very nice and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Pointing out the interesting items. There was a little game for the kids to spot things in each room to stop them getting bored which is pretty common these days, but it makes it much easier to enjoy the places. They also had little games in certain rooms and things that kids can actually touch! This was another good touch.

I would certainly return, hopefully on a warmer day!!

What a wonderful place. The house is, as others have observed, smaller than the average "stately home" and that makes it friendlier and accessible, as are the staff, who seem to really enjoy their roles.
This time we visited the walled garden, a real trip back in time and remarkably well presented. Parts of the old vegetable garden have been let out as allotments, almost all immaculately maintained, with a photo of the families who maintain them....what a good idea. Amazing dove house, all well kept of course, and well worth a visit. We then followed the church walk, lovely building full of the history of the estate owners, before enjoying a hard earned lunch.

We found Felbrigg fascinating. We spent about 90 minutes wandering through the house, but could have easily spent twice the length of time there. This is mainly due to the knowledge and approachability of the staff in every room. This shines out as a great example of how every NT property should be run. They really made the whole experience come alive for us. Mind you, the property and its history gives them the perfect tools to do the job. I won't spoil your fun by saying any more!

Only disappointment - didn't have time for any of the excellent walks.
