The site, known for its charm, was given 40 out of 50 marks with the feature noting its 'architecture' and 'things to see' as particular standout categories.

Inside, the hall lays host to a rich and vibrant history - from Queen Mary's teapot to a cabinet Room with a collection amassed on a European 'grand tour'.

The property came into the care of the National Trust in 1969 after the last squire of Felbrigg, Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer, devoted his life to preserving it.

As well as the hall, the site includes a walled garden, great wood, an ice house, a tea room and a shop stocked with locally produced gifts.

An adult ticket for the hall and gardens start from £12 and children's tickets cost £6.
