Tudor Manor House and traditional country house garden
Great days out for the whole family
A timeless Manor House set in acres of stunning, family-friendly gardens and parkland, in the beautiful Suffolk village of Long Melford.
The House: structurally Tudor and successor to the Kentwell Hall mentioned in Domesday Book in 1085. With later impressive Gothick and classical alterations, mixed with the owners' improvements since 1971 some more ideosyncratic than others. Fine early armorial and other stained glass, portraits of Tudor notables and historic tapestries make this lived in family home of interest to all.
