In 1482, at the end of The Wars of the Roses, Sir Edmund Bedingfeld built his fortified manor house with its spectacular Tudor gatehouse and impressive moat. Five centuries later the Bedingfeld family are still in residence and the house has been in the care of the National Trust since 1952.

Oxburgh is an exciting place to visit, providing a clear view into our medieval history. The Marian hangings are a rare example of sixteenth century needlework made by Queen Mary of Scots and Bess of Hardwick. In 1487 Henry VII and his Queen Elizabeth stayed in what have since been referred to as the King's and Queen's Rooms. However, despite strong links with the Crown, the Priest's Hole reflects a very dangerous period for the Bedingfelds when they remained committed to the Catholic faith after the English Reformation.

The delightful grounds feature an imposing parterre, herbaceous borders, a woodland walk and an enchanting kitchen garden which contributes to the Restaurant menu with herbs, flowers and some seasonal vegetables.
