Kentwell - a romantic, moated, mellow red brick Tudor mansion in a tranquil parkland setting.
A 40 year restoration project with an unrivalled ability to captivate the visitor
In 1970 Kentwell stood neglected. No-one was prepared to take it on - except Patrick Phillips. He fell for this wonderful House in its magical setting and was not deterred by its condition. Ever since then he has, with his wife and family, sought to bring Kentwell back to life.
Kentwell pioneered Tudor domestic Living History Events in the UK, and over 30 years later the Re-Creations are as magical as ever. You can visit one of the award-winning Re-Creations of Tudor Everyday Life and Dickensian life.
