About Felbrigg Hall
Felbrigg Hall is an outstanding Jacobean house built in about 1620, with a later west front in the William and Mary style. Across the front are the words "Gloria Deo in Excelsis" meaning Glory to God in the Highest. The house is renowned for its magnificent bays and rich interiors which are mainly 18th and 19th century.
The house in its beautiful parkland setting is instantly appealing, and once inside visitors are overwhelmed by the paintings, and superb furniture on display. A lot of the paintings are the work of a single artist, and are of a Grand Tour, these are acclaimed as the finest grand tour paintings in the country. There is an excellent library with book's from Dr.Johnson's collection, and mostly the lovely furniture is English.
Of the rooms open to the public there is an impressive Chinese Bedroom, Rose Bedroom, and Red Bedroom, all are reached by a magnificent staircase. There is a Great Hall, Dinning Room, Drawing Room, Kitchen and what is known as The Red Shutters Corridor.
The parkland covers 500 acres. Here you can visit a delightful walled garden, orangery, and in the landscaped park there is a dovecot, lake and great woods. The woods were planted in the late 17th century with oaks, beech, sycamore and maple. In spring the woods are a delight, with a carpet of bluebells. Late autumn sees a change as the leaves turn to red and gold. This is a lovely wood for a long peaceful stroll, it is perfect for bird watching and early risers can have the joy of joining an organised "Dawn Chorus" walk, arranged by the National Trust. There are waymarked walks, and you can reach the church via the woods.
Felbrigg Hall has a fascinating history, it remained with the Wyndham family for centuries, it is said to have a ghost, and has certainly had at least one eccentric owner who used to dress as a train driver and drive the local train! His wife attempted to have him declared insane, when she did not succeed Punch wrote "Wyndham is sane but England must be Cracked" later, in 1864 his wife parted from him.
The Hall was left to the National Trust by R. Wyndham Ketton-Cromer in 1969. There is a shop and a restaurant.
Felbrigg Hall is open to the public between March and September.
