Overview
More
Kentwell Hall is a beautiful moated red brick Tudor Manor House in the historic village of Long Melford, Suffolk. Whilst not a stately home, this 'little great house' remains a lived-in and much-loved family home; something it has been for over 500 years. Surrounded by timbered outbuildings, tranquil gardens and a large estate, Kentwell is popular for family days out, weddings, filming and functions and is noted for its special events programme including living history re-creations and the award-winning Scaresville experience.

Privately owned and it must be a massive task to keep this place going but well worth the effort. Interesting interior - not many guides but plenty of information in all the rooms. Fascinating gardens with walks through the woods and around the "moat" and...More

Very friendly staff and grounds keepers. House and gardens have much to see, with corners, nooks and crannies all around. Highly recommended afternoon visit.
