Kentwell Hall is Suffolk’s hidden gem and one of England’s finest Tudor houses that stands within the most extensive moat in the county and nearly 30 acres of formal gardens and grounds.

A privately owned house that is fully moated, Kentwell is truly a stunning property with a character and an individuality not often seen in great venues these days.

The house offers the visitor a journey through time from the Great Tudor Kitchen, the Gothic centre block to the State bedroom that was created by Thomas Hopper for the then Duke of York.

Kentwell Hall’s organic gardens are today a combination of ancient features, elements of the substantial alterations of Lady Guthrie, tenant during the 1930s, and the recent landscaping and planting by the current owners.

Please check the website for further information, admission times and details about special events.
