Brief description of site

There are two hectares of formal gardens at Glemham Hall, featuring a rose garden laid out within 18th-century walls and hedges. The house and gardens are set in a wider estate including parkland for which Humphry Repton produced designs. The property can be hired out for various purposes and the garden is open to the public very occasionally. Please see:

Brief history of site

Glemham Hall was owned by the Glemham family from the 13th until the early-18th century. A park at Little Glemham is listed in an undated (around 1560) list of Suffolk deer parks. During the 18th century formal gardens were laid out around the re-modelled house. Humphry Repton was commissioned at the end of the 18th century and produced Red Book designs for the estate. From about 1923 new gardens were laid out within the 18th-century enclosures and hedges.
