Kentwell is a moated Tudor manor, built by the Clopton family in the early 16th century. The exterior is largely built of red-brick. The beautifully preserved interiors feature a working Tudor kitchen and a Great Hall with a minstrels gallery at one end. In the landscaped grounds that surround the house are a Tudor Rose pavement maze, clipped topiary, and a Camera Obscura. Kentwell is a very short distance from another stately home, Melford Hall.

"The fortified manor house of Workington Hall is the oldest building of note in Workington. It was built sometime in the 13th century, and in 1380 Gilbert de Curwen was granted a license to crenelate the hall. The hall stayed in the Curwen family for over 700 years, until it passed to the local council. Before then, in 1560, Mary Queen of Scots stayed at Workington Hall on her escape from her enemies in Scotland."
