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.
