Kiplin Hall


Kiplin Hall is a Jacobean country house built for George Calvert, Secretary of State to James I and founder of Maryland, USA. It has four centuries of history belonging to four families and it is now furnished as a Victorian country house. There are also 100 acres of woodland, gardens and parkland to explore. There is a tea room serving delicious home-made treats and light lunches, all using either home-grown or locally-sourced produce. The gardens are being restored to the original 19th century plan and there is a children's play area with lots of outdoor activities and space to let off steam. Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome in the grounds.
