Peaceful & romantic
Gardens and parklands
Standing majestically in its own parklands, Kentwell Hall is surrounded by an idyllic moat adorned by pink roses.
Peaceful and romantic, guests are welcome to wander through the formal and informal gardens and parklands.
For those who enjoy structure and balance, a visit to the topiary gardens are a must. For guests who enjoy a more relaxed feel, a stroll through walled gardens to the tranquil water features will no doubt appeal.
Changing seasons bring out the best in Kentwell, with Spring bringing swaths of daffodils, snowdrops and apple blossom. In Summer roses in bloom will scent your journey through our gardens, herb garden and Potager — take a moment to appreciate the delicate pink pillar roses which adorn the moat walls. The changing colours of Autumn are always special as are the frosty days of Winter, but never more so than at Kentwell Hall with our magnificent shrubs, and the ancient Yews and Cedars.
Set in a vast Suffolk parkland, our farm, with its timber-framed buildings, is home to Kentwell’s rare breed farm animals. Explore our traditional working farm which we run in an ethical and environmentally friendly way. Make time to meet our rare breed pigs, sheep, cows, horses and goats, and don’t forget to say hello to Isobel, our giant dreadlocked Poitou donkey.
There’s something for everyone to enjoy here in the gardens and farmyard at Kentwell Hall; wrap up warm and play in the woodland, explore the water features, or simply find a quiet seat and relax in the winter sun.
Explore the house and gardens
A rich and colourful experience throughout the year
The gardens have carpets of snowdrops in early spring followed by a mass of daffodils and cowslips. There are plentiful wild pyramid orchids to be found in summer, when the walled garden is a riot of colour and the rose garden flourishes. Best of all perhaps the delicate pink American pillar roses which adorn the moat walls.
