Charming Tudor House - See opening times here

‘Logically it should not still be standing up!’

It’s not your eyes playing tricks on you. Seeing the tumbling architecture of Little Moreton Hall for the first time, engineers in 1990 could not believe their eyes either. Fortunately, this timber-framed building, curled around with a scenic moat, has defied logic for over 500 years. Step back in time inside this higgledy-piggledy house and discover what everyday Tudor life tells us about the way we live today.

A simpler way of life

Join daily guided tours to discover the story of Little Moreton Hall and the many people who lived here, from Tudor farmers to Victorian tenants. Meet costumed gentlewomen and get hands on with Tudor traditions such as butter making and herbal remedies.

Knot just a garden

Nestled at the back of the hall is the manicured knot garden.  You’ll also find herbs and vegetables that the Tudors would have used for their cooking and medicines.

Treat yourself

Enjoy a sandwich and homemade slice of cake inside the quaint Little Tea Room or soak up the sunshine on the lawn with afternoon tea. You’ll find a different experience in Mrs Dale’s Tea Room with service right to your table, warming dishes and a log-burning stove when it’s nippy.

Our spacious shop has something for everyone, from edible treats and locally brewed ale, to books for garden lovers, budding chefs and nature explorers.

Where next?

Just half an hour’s drive from Little Moreton Hall you’ll find a secret walled garden at Hare Hill.  Whatever the season, wander along paths that twist and turn through the wooded garden and find a peaceful spot on the lawn surrounded by borders of white flowers.
