A homely country house dated 1700 set in Victorian walled gardens at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds

‘I could live here!’, is what most people say when visiting Gunby Hall and Gardens. Modest-sized rooms full of character and charm make it easy to imagine you can move in yourself.

With links to Tennyson, Darwin and Vaughan-Williams there is so much to discover about the family home of the Massingberd family.

Explore three floors of the hall full of interesting collection pieces amassed over generations from 1700 until 1963. Chat to our room guides to find out stories about Gunby’s interesting past.

Stroll through our eight-acre gardens and enjoy the different areas: sweeping formal lawns, flower borders, vegetable gardens and wildflower corners.

Complete your visit with a stop in our charming tea-room and enjoy some home baked cake and a nice cuppa.
