"…East Anglia has some of the most delicious little moated manor houses straight out of a story book. One of my favourites belongs to Charles and Lynda Tucker at Hindringham.
The house is warm brick and cool flint and you get to it across a lovely little brick bridge. You are crossing a moat that has gone all the way round since 12th-century...
The house is Tudor, built c.1538 by a courtier who had got rich in the service of Henry VIII’s illegitimate son Henry Fitzroy. It was in decline before Gerald Gosselin from Bengeo Hall in Herts restored it in 1900.
Mrs Tucker has worked tirelessly to revitalise the gardens which are open regularly during the summer, though the house is only open for a few days. But make an effort to get there, the roses are fragrant, the black swans elegant, the tea homemade and it’s the sort of place where you feel history stops and you step off the road of time…”
