About the Venue
Kentwell Hall is Suffolk’s hidden gem and one of England’s finest Tudor houses that stands within the most extensive moat in the county and nearly 30 acres of formal gardens and grounds.
The house offers the visitor a journey through time from the Great Tudor Kitchen, the Gothic centre block to the State bedroom that was created by Thomas Hopper in the 1820s for a visit from the then Duke of York.
The house offers a relaxed environment, mixed with an individuality that is not often seen these days in great historic venues.
Kentwell Hall’s organic gardens are a combination of ancient features, elements of the substantial alterations of Lady Guthrie, tenant during the 1930s, and the recent landscaping and planting by the current owners.
Particular areas of interest include the formal walled garden with its glorious borders providing seasonal displays of colour, the wildlife meadows and the Pied Piper Topiary hedge.
Whilst the magnificent Cedar Trees that date back to the late 18th century provide a lovely backdrop and The Sculpted Tree, based on the theme of the Tower of Babel, is the UK's biggest single wood carving.
The house and gardens are described as “magical with a surprise around every corner” and are to be enjoyed at your leisure.
The Stable Yard Tea Rooms serve light lunches and afternoon tea using seasonal produce from the gardens and farm.
Kentwell Hall is famous for producing some of the countries largest Re-creations and family events that run throughout the year.
Kentwell is available to hire for weddings, corporate functions, events and filming.
