Hindringham Hall 1/5

Quite by chance during our Norfolk holiday last year we learnt of the gardens at Hindringham Hall, Grade 2* moated house, which are open to the public for two days a week during the summer months. I took a lot of pictures and am presenting a selection as five collages during the week. Firstly the Hall and nearby Moat House which can be rented as holiday accommodation.

Four very fine views to start with, Brian.

There might be an opportunity for Maureen to prune a few twigs, for potting at home...
Brian Walbey: I just thought it might be nice to show different sides of the house in one go. I done this collage using the collage function in a freebie program called Fotor, it's o.k.but trims the edges off the images to fit them in.
A wonderful house, I love the moat !
Brian Walbey: What I would call a proper country house, complete with lots of character.

What a charming place to stay and what a wonderful scenery around the houses. This looks such a nice place to have a vacation....

Well I have never heard of a moated house before Brian, so thank you for the information.

You mad a lovely presentation of this special place. I wonder why a house get to be moated? Just decorative?
Brian Walbey: Moated houses are not unusual in the country areas. I done this collage using the collage function in a freebie program called Fotor, it's o.k.but trims the edges off the images to fit them in.

Quelles belles maisons !
Brian Walbey: It's a shme one couldn't go inside to look round.
I am impressed with these views. Love the wisteria on the house.
Brian Walbey: You'll see a lot more of the Wisteria later in the week.

I love this collage, I especially like the houses with the long chimneys, very English!
Brian Walbey: The main house looks like one I wouldn't mind living in as long as somebody else paid all the bills for its upkeep smile

It sounds interesting, a moated house, I imagine there aren't many of those around.

A lovely set of pictures, plenty to see and do by the looks of things.
Brian Walbey: Shame the house itslef isn't open to the public. We've come across several moated houses, I have featured baddesley Clinton in Warwickshire and Oxburgh Hall in Norfolk, both of which are NT.
A very handsome structure!

The Moat House (bottom right?) looks non-English - bavarian was the first thought that came to mind. In face the view of the main house bottom left looks European, Dutch I'm thinking. I like the sear on the walkway in the lake.
Brian Walbey: The house definitely has a foreign look to it, shame it isn't open.
