Visited in December just before Christmas, when I had my festive holiday in the area.
After park in the huge car park, it is a nice little walk to the house. I visited the church at first then headed to the house, but then unfortunately, i was told that entry is only by booking in advance in all December. It was pretty much my fault not to check it, as I just marked this place on my map as a National trust house, and because I am a member, I rarely used to check the house site's. So I was not able to go in, but on the side they had the museum of childhood, which I visited, then the rear parkland, which is not too big, but it was quiet and peaceful. Maybe I will have another chance in another time to get in.

I always enjoy the National Trust houses we visit, but Sudbury Hall was breathtaking. The restoration internally has made the house a hive of history, and the guides are superb.

The museum of childhood would be worth visiting in its own, we had so much fun and it really brings back some memories.

Would definitely recommend stopping by the cafe for a hot drink and slice of cake!

It is, of course, a National Trust house so will need to pay or have a membership to enter. I’d definitely recommend joining - it’s been my favourite thing during lockdown!

Perfect day out in cold windy weather. The house itself had an attic tour that we went in for nearly an hour. A guide took a group of us up to the attic to show us all of the stored items from the museum of childhood and rooms up there. The house itself was then an informative walk around with very helpful staff and volunteers. Some really amazing ceilings and decoration even compared to other grander properties. Well worth a visit.

Very well presented property, fabulous craftsmen worked on the house and there is so much wonderful evidence of their work - plaster, elaborate wood carving and beautiful paintings. Super gardens too ! The portraits are very well catalogued and there are several booklets in each room - excellent. However, accompanying booklets or visitor files on the room itself would be appreciated as a complement to these. More detail on the people who lived at Sudbury, their achievements and lives would be appreciated.

The Museum of Childhood is based aorund the Cadbury collection, and is not well presented. It appears that childhood only started in Victorian times, all children were either chimney sweeps or mill hands. Nothing on the Roman or Medieval life of children, or farm life, for example. Toys displayed in very haphazard fashion and the diablo and yo-yo strings were either broken or too short, and the wrong type of string. Almost impossible to play with diablo toys. Too amateur in so many areas, as appears to be the NT market positioning.

Cafe is the usual National Trust - nice cakes, but sandwiches well below standard expected at the price point, and the queue was to the door, as ever. A McDonald's manager would weep. Trading on the tolerance of customers, as the NT does in so many areas.

Actually, the 17th century Sudbury Hall and its (much later) enclosed Museum of Childhood are one item - but you can visit them separately, and pay separately. Of course, it makes much more "sightseeing sense", if such a thing exists, to combine the two - price-wise, it does too. You will still end up with a UKP 18.30 bill, which is quite hefty, and the reason I cannot award this attraction the full 5 stars.

Adults will find Sudbury Hall to be the far more significant one: A very fine stately mansion, owned and inhabited by the family who had it built in 1680-80 until the year 1969, when it was donated to the National Trust. Most of what's inside, in terms of furniture at least, actually comes from late 19th, early 20th century. But still splendid to look at. The main attraction is the astonishing 40 metres long Great Hall, which simply looks stunning and is filled with 2nd tier portraits of family members and (other) notables from the 17th to 19th century. The furniture you'll find in some rooms is a bit on the bland side, but there many interesting objects strewn around. There are very few art objects and paintings inside you'd recognize as outstanding; but then the Vernons didn't belong to the highest of nobility either. I've visited many mansions in England and Scotland over the past 10 years, and Sudbury Hall certainly sits on the lower middle end, three rungs below the most wonderful such place I ever visited, Castle Howard in Yorkshire. But maybe because it's not quite as refined as some others, it allows you an even more interesting glimpse into the everyday lives of the lower nobility.

The café is rather nice indeed, though usually as crowded and loud as the attached Museum of Childhood, as those will both be full of industrious little terrorists (i.e. children).

If you're in the Derby-Burton-Nottingham area and only have time to visit one country mansion, then I suggest you'll make that Kedleston Hall near Derby, which is far more imposing and luxurious. And easier to get to. Sudbury Hall offers a large car park that's a few minutes walk from the house. By bus, use the hourly 401 service between Tutbury and Uttoxeter.

Visited Sudbury for the first time this month, we've been NT members for just a year and although we are fairly local never got round to visiting before.

Popped in the bookshop and garden shop before the Museum of Childhood.....which we thought was excellent. Had a short walk around the garden.....not very big.....and the churchyard before having a bite to eat in the cafe.
Then ventured round the Hall, very informative guides in each room should you want to know anything. Also interesting to go downstairs into the servants/kitchen areas.

Overall a few hours well spent. As others have said the car park is quite a distance away and not sure if disabled could park any closer.

Not sure whether we would go back as often as we do to Shugborough .......no need to go round the hall or museum again for a while and we didn't find the walk around the garden particularly time consuming.

Although I couldn’t easily stop and assess or admire the interior of this beautiful building, as I had a 2-year old and 8-year old running around, it’s a positive aspect that the staff were very tolerant of kids! Yes we had been to the museum of childhood first, but don’t worry too much about going on to the Hall if you are a parent. Personal thoughts are that the exterior brickwork and architectural features are more worthy of inspection than the interior, but these are subjective matters. No lifts of course, but interesting contrasts between servants quarters down below and the sumptuous bedrooms above. Stop by if visiting the museum.

We spent an interesting day at Sudbury Hall. The house was impressive with many historic artefacts. We particularly enjoyed the museum of childhood which added another dimension to our visit. Unfortunately the weather was too wet to explore the grounds, which although not extensive, looked as if they would have been enjoyable.

On a cold, damp day we wanted to visit an NT property where the house was open and Sudbury Hall was one of the few within travelling distance from Northants..The car park is across from the house front with a fairly busy road running between them.N.B. parents with children, the number of times I heard parents anxiously shouting at their children to stop after they had been let run ahead from the car park and were careering headlong towards the road -accident waiting to happen!!!
In the winter there isn't much to see in the grounds but the house held plenty of interest for us and the guides in the house were pro-active, interesting and informative.We went to the church but it was closed.So we had a couple of hours walking round everything and got use out of our NT memberships.

Sudbury hall itself was a lovely place to walk around and a decent way to spend a couple of hours. The old toy museum was nice but could have been bigger with a larger range.

They have a book shop you can buy preowned books with really friendly staff.

Avoid the cafe as it’s really expensive and has a very small range of choices. We where 7mins past cut off for breakfast sandwichs and refused them even though we had been in the que 15mins. Yet the people behind us asked a different member of staff and got them.

Overall if your a national trust member is a good way to kill a couple of hours.
