Original oak-panelled rooms
Many of our Tudor oak-panelled rooms remain, with original carved fireplaces and windows. Each room has something enabling visitors to get a feel for how a prominent Tudor family lived, ate and played.
Revel in the Tudor world and experience the home of Thomas Cromwell's protege Rafe Sadleir. Despite 500 years passing, the halls, chambers and cellars of Sutton House keep the spirit of the age alive.
Our beautiful courtyard is the perfect place to step outside and relax in the tranquil atmosphere.
