Visit one of East Anglia’s most elegant houses situated in a rolling landscape park with a beautiful lake and 520 acres of woods. Explore nature and wildlife on this bountiful estate and be delighted as you walk around the hall with its opulence and homeliness.
Visit the rooms and see how each one has its own story to tell and then sit in the grand Gothic-style library. Be in awe with the hundreds of books and the magnificent collection of Grand Tour paintings.
Delight in the decorative walled garden full of fruit and vegetables, and then head to the beehives in the orchard. But don’t miss the magnificent Redwood trees in the west garden. Afterwards head to the Great Wood and see a wide variety of trees of all ages, including ancient Beeches, Oaks, Sweet Chestnuts, Hawthorns, Ash and Sycamore.
With Felbrigg estate being divided into two distinct parts – the woods to the north and the open parkland to the south of the house – there is much for the whole family to explore, which is made easier by the many way-marked walks dotted throughout the estate.
And don’t be surprised if you see bantams, peacocks and guinea fowl meandering around. They belong to the estate as well. Felbrigg also has one of the few octagonal working dovecotes in the country, dating back to the early 1950s.
The house, its contents and estate was left to the National Trust by Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer, the last squire of Felbrigg Hall, who died in 1969.
