Somerleyton Hall and gardens is situated near Somerleyton village which is different from all the other villages in England. The houses look different, so that you are the feeling of being in a fairy tale. Magnificent! The estate is not far from the village and it has a beautiful garden with huge old trees. Something in the architecture of the house remind you of the charming royal Sandringham.
Inside the house you can visit few rooms only, as the house is a private property, but all of them are wonderful: the Oak Room, the Library, the Ballroom, the Dining Room with the exquisite cristals. On the top of the staircase a beautiful portrait of Phyllis, wife of first Lord Somerleyton enchants the visitor's eyes. Another portrait of hers (wearing a beautiful ball dress) can be seen in the dining room (or in the library,where there is her desk, I am not very sure). Other beautiful paintings are the portraits (at different ages) of the beautiful Belinda Maris Loyd, OBE. In the last room a natural huge polar bear (which was hunted in an expedition at the North Pole) can be seen and a skin of a large tiger. Taking photos is not allowed inside the house, unfortunately, but anyway the visitor is charmed by the unusual wonderful things that can be seen at Somerleyton only.
