Gunby Hall, Spilsby, Lincolnshire

Poet Alfred Lord Tennyson was a regular visitor to Gunby Hall and it is said to have inspired the imagery of 'the haunt of ancient peace' in his poem The Palace of Art.

Situated at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds, with over 9 acres of woodland and walled gardens, this Victorian hall stands in resplendent red brick splendour. It was Sir William Massingberd who began construction at the beginning of the 18th century and in the late 19th century the property was further extended.

Many rooms of the hall are wood panelled and there is a beautiful oak staircase to behold. The house contains collections of family portraits, period furniture and an exhibition of Field Marshall Montgomery-Massingberd´s memorabilia.

The exquisite walled gardens are planted with traditional vegetables, fruit, flowers and has a dovecot that pre dates the house.

The Hall was given to the National Trust in 1944.
