A Luxurious Christmas Residence
FELBRIGG HALL, ENGLAND, IS BEAUTIFUL AT CHRISTMAS WITH STUNNING GREENERY AND RED RIBBONS.
Felbrigg Hall, England, is beautifully decorated for Christmas with stunning greenery and red ribbons.
Felbrigg Hall is a stunning Jacobean home in North Norfolk, England, famous for its classic architecture and beautifully preserved Georgian interiors.
The house was constructed for Sir John Wyndham, a landowner and justice of the peace, in the 17th century. His family acquired the Felbrigg estate some 200 years earlier.
Today, Felbrigg Hall stands in the center of a sprawling 1,760-acre-park with woodlands and gardens. The west garden is a Victorian pleasure ground, with formal lawns, floral borders and an 18th century orangery. There’s a Victorian kitchen garden, while the orchard contains a hen house in the image of a castle; the hens roam free on the lawns. Historic varieties of fruit depict what might have grown in the kitchen garden in the 19th century, with cherries, apples, pears and plums.
Robert Wyndham Ketton-cremer was the last resident of Felbrigg Hall. The original heir to the family estate, his brother Dick, was killed in action during WWII. A treelined avenue was planted at Felbrigg in his memory. Robert devoted his life to preserving the house and estate, before leaving it to the National Trust in 1969.
