This beautiful historic house is a living monument to much of England’s history - a loved and lived in home, not a museum!It contains a wealth of period furnishings, paintings & decorations.
Among Hellens' attractions are the haunted rooms prepared for Bloody Mary Tudor, the Stone Hall and its great fireplace bearing the Black Prince’s crest, and the Minstrel Gallery. The Music Room has a fine frieze and panelling. The gardens are being redeveloped along Tudor and Jacobean lines, reflecting the House’s history. They incorporate a rare 17th century octagonal dovecote, a walled knot garden, and a yew labyrinth. The family carriages and the Old Cider Mill house are also to be seen.
