Your perfect day in the magical setting of Kentwell and its peaceful gardens. The perfect location for weddings, dinners, galas, parties, functions, company days and banquets.

Kentwell - a very different experience: a romantic, completely moated, mellow redbrick Tudor mansion in a tranquil parkland setting.

A 40 year Restoration Project - In 1970 Kentwell stood neglected. No-one was prepared to take it on - except Patrick Phillips. He fell for this wonderful House in its magical setting and was not deterred by its condition. Ever since then he has, with his wife and family, sought to bring Kentwell back to life.

House, Gardens & Farm have an unrivalled ability to captivate the visitor.

You can also visit one of the award-winning Re-Creations of Tudor Everyday Life and Dickensian life. Kentwell pioneered Tudor domestic Living History Events in the UK, and over 30 years later the Re-Creations are as magical as ever.
