From Our Editors

Kiplin Hall was built in the 17th century by George Calvert, Secretary of State to James I and founder of Maryland. This Jacobean house is now furnished as a comfortable home with Victorian decor and 16 rooms open to the public. The contents on display belonged to the families who owned and lived in the Hall, and include period furniture and family personalia as well as paintings and portraits by artists including Beuckelaer, Carlevarijs, Kauffman and Watts. The gardens, which are undergoing restoration, include a productive walled garden, white and rose gardens as well as a small garden museum. Visitors may take a stroll around the woodland and lakeside, while little ones can have fun on the play ship and dig in the archaeology trench.

It's a lovely period house, it's privately owned and supported totally by volunteers! Very worth while a visit, lovely gardens and why not support this lovely house?!

I love the fact it doesn't have that usual museum feel. The lack of big display boards and red ropes stopping you getting up close to the exhibits make it feel like the home it once was. I loved the walled garden.. it was like a step back in time. Can't understand why I had never been before, I don't live that far away. I had a wonderful afternoon.
