Kentwell Hall information
Gorgeous, turreted, Kentwell Hall may date from the 1500s and be full of Tudor grandeur, but it's still used as a private home, resulting in a wonderfully lived-in feel. Kentwell is framed by a rectangular moat, glorious gardens and an irresistible rare-breeds farm. Tudor reenactment events see the whole estate bristle with bodices, codpieces and hose. Opening hours are erratic, it tends to be open 11am to 5pm during school summer holidays, plus other weekends; call to check.
During October, Kentwell is home to Scaresville, a costumed Halloween evening extravaganza in which an entire haunted village 'appears' in the grounds.
