Description
Oxburgh Hall, Garden & Estate

15th-century moated manor house

This quintessential Tudor house, with its magnificent gatehouse and accessible Priest's Hole, was built in 1482 by the Bedingfeld family, who still live here. The rooms show the development from medieval austerity to neo-Gothic Victorian comfort, and include an outstanding display of embroidery worked by Mary, Queen of Scots and Bess of Hardwick. The attractive gardens feature a French parterre, walled orchard and kitchen garden. There are delightful woodland walks and an interesting Catholic chapel
