Otley Hall

Home of Ursula Naunton and Robert Gosnold III

and their descendants.

"Otley Hall is a stunningly beautiful 16th century moated Hall. Still a family home, it is set in 10 acres of gardens in the tranquil Suffolk countryside, only 8 miles north of Ipswich.
A Grade 1 listed building, the house is a perfect example of unspoiled late medieval architecture. Particularly impressive are the Great Hall and Linenfold Parlour, both of which look out onto the Rose Garden. According to Farrer (Old Suffolk Houses, Vol. 6), these two rooms are unequalled in Suffolk.
A wealth of notable features includes a cross or screens passage, richly carved beams, superb Linenfold panelling, and 16th-century wall paintings celebrating the marriage in 1559 of Robert Gosnold III and Ursula Naunton. Outside, the lofty chimneys, herringbone brickwork and vineleaf pargetting, magnificent today, give a tantalising glimpse of an even more glorious past."
