Discover the romantic moated manor house and gardens, Oxburgh Hall
The Oxburgh Hall garden surrounds the wonderful moated Tudor manor house built in 1482 by the Bedingfeld family. Lawns fringed with fine trees, a Victorian parterre planted by Sir Henry Paston-Bedingfeld in the mid 19th century, lined with box and permanent plantings of Cineraria `Silver Dust´ and Ruta graveolens `Jackman´s Blue´. The dazzling summer bedding for the parterre included ageratums and French marigolds. The Victorian kitchen garden is now planted as a formal orchard with plums, medlars, quinces and gages as well as apples, while roses, clematis and other climbers grow on the walls. A long herbaceous border shelters behind yew hedging and a herb and vegetable garden provides produce for the restaurant.
