Architectural Building Tourist Spot
No one forgets their first sight of Oxburgh. Built in 1482 by the Catholic Bedingfeld family, it is the enduring legacy of their survival through turbulent times. There are 500 years of history to explore and hidden doors, rooftop views and a secret priest's hole to discover. Victorian Gothic interiors reflect a romantic view of Oxburgh's medieval past. The collections include embroideries worked by Mary, Queen of Scots, and colourful wallpapers from the mid-19th century. The moated Hall is surrounded by nearly 28 hectares (70 acres), containing gardens with seasonal interest, streams and woodland walks. Dogs are welcome in the garden and woodland.

  • This is a little gem. Beautifully kept with wonderful furniture, paintings and tapestries. I my view one of the best N. T. properties with lovely volunteers at work. It made a lovely day out. Fabulous climbing roses and herbaceous border.
  • Well worth a visit. Set in lovely countryside. Manor house dating to 1400s with moat swans with 6 babies. Can go in some of the rooms. Lovely.grounds with.church. Tea room shop plants for sale.
  • I have totally enjoyed removing tree stumps throughout their grounds, and indeed at several other National Trust locations. While admiring their well cared for gardens, try the cafe for a truly relaxing visit.
  • Lovely walk on the grounds over Easter with an egg hunt for the daughter. Excellent tea and fresh scones. 2nd visit.
  • if you are interested in stately homes and castles. this is a great day out.
