Kiplin Hall is the delightful Jacobean country seat of George Calvert, founder of Maryland and 1st Lord Baltimore.
The award-winning Hall is now shown as a comfortable Victorian home, with centuries of the belongings of its previous owners.
The collections contain furniture from the 17th to the 19th centuries, and numerous family portraits and paintings by artists such as Joachim Beuckelaer, Luca Carlevarijs, Angelica Kauffman, Lady Waterford and G.F. Watts. There are also many Arts and Crafts pieces.
Visitors are fascinated by the surviving WW2 Kitchen and Bathroom, when the RAF requisitioned the house and estate.
Restoration of the gardens began in 2007, with new areas added each year – Rose, White, Sensory and Bog Gardens, herbaceous and hot borders.
Produce from our fabulous Walled Garden is used in the oak panelled Tea Room. There are woodland and lakeside walks, parkland, children’s play ship, natural play area, garden games and dipping-pond.
