Ormesby Hall (National Trust)


Home of the Pennyman family for nearly 400 years, this classic Georgian mansion has a Victorian kitchen and laundry, attractive gardens and estate walks. Experience the spirit of the intimate home of Colonel Jim Pennyman, the last of the Pennyman line, and his arts-loving wife Ruth, as well as the stylish legacy of the 18th century character 'Wicked' Sir James Pennyman - so named because of his extravagant lifestyle and his gambling with the family fortune. Ormesby Hall is also home to the National Trust's only model railways. See the miniature Corfe, Brafferton and Pilmoor layouts, and bring the kids to meet Thomas and Friends.
