Details

When stepping through the gate you will instantly realise why Oxburgh has earned a special place in the hearts of many a visitor. Home to the Bedingfield family since 1482 this stunning red-brick house charts their precarious history from medieval austerity to neo-Gothic Victorian splendour. As well as early Mortlake tapestries in the Queen's Room, Oxburgh houses beautiful embroidery by both Mary Queen of Scots and the famous Bess of Harwick. Panoramic views from the roof look out over the Victorian French parterre, walled orchard, kitchen garden and a Catholic chapel. There are quizzes, trails and dressing-up clothes to try on and the woodland is full of walks and a woodland den building and camp area for families. Regular events are held throughout the year to inspire you to learn more about England's history through the changing fortunes of one family.
