Now cared for by the National Trust, Felbrigg Hall is a 17th-century English country house, noted for its glamorous architecture and design. It’s final owner was Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer and upon not having sons, the house was left to his younger brother Richard. However, when his brother and heir was killed in action during the Second World War, he bequeathed the house to the trust.
To this day there is a memorial to Richard in the woods behind the house.
The building is noted for its Jacobean architecture and fine Georgian interior and is a Grade I listed building. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens, orangeries and orchards. Today the Felbrigg estate covers 1,760 acres of parkland including the 520-acre) of Great Wood, which shelters the house.
