Description of Garden

The garden at Felbrigg is in two halves. The West Garden is typical of the 18th century landscape movement creating a formal link between the Hall and the greater landscape that is its setting.

Given a Victorian overlay, focusing on the play between light and shade, it features a ha-ha and orangery, shrubbery and many trees of trans-Atlantic origin. Drift through the garden meadow to the Walled Garden, with its borders of herbs, mixed shrubs, roses and herbaceous plants. The Kitchen Garden is a mix of flowers, fruit and vegetables, featuring a dovecote and pond. The walls are clothed with espaliered pears, peaches, apples, apricots and cherries, with a new Orchard planted with varieties known to have been grown here during the 19th century.

History Of Garden

The Jacobean Hall was built by Thomas Windham and it is likely that it was his great, great, grandson, William Windham III, landlord and patron to the young Humphry Repton from the mid-1770's, who gave the famous garden designer his first opportunity at Felbrigg. During the First World War, many of the fine trees sheltering the garden from the fierce East winds from the North Sea, were felled for timber but they were largely replaced by Robert Windham Ketton-Cremer who also added the Victory V rides in the Coronation group of beeches to commemorate VE-Day. He later bequeathed the estate to the National Trust.
