Come explore, discover and be enchanted...
The serene setting enfolded by The River Great Ouse is perhaps the biggest surprise.
Island Hall is set in the heart of bustling Godmanchester but stepping through the lovingly restored Georgian grandeur of the 18th century mansion, you enter the secluded privacy of the gardens. There it is, the beautiful old river, silvery waters curling through and around the gardens with their towering trees, home to resident swans, herons, owls and blue flashed kingfishers. The river embraces The Island from which the house takes its name.
Island Hall is very much a family home (still privately owned) and this is the atmosphere that we try to preserve. We take immense pride in maintaining this beautiful house, which our family has had an association with since 1804. It is with genuine pleasure we welcome interested guests to our much-loved family home and we hope you will enjoy your visit.
Island Hall is home to the Vane Percy family whose ancestors have lived here for eight generations in this finely proportioned, intimate, Georgian mansion. The river Ouse offers a unique way of arriving. You may choose to hire our exclusive chauffeured hired boat to bring guests along the river and step out by the 18th century style Chinese Bridge.
Island Hall makes every visitor instantly welcome. The house has been enjoyed by many hundreds of parties and tour groups with both general and specialist interests over the last forty years, since its careful restoration, begun in the 1980s. The house has been photographed and written up by numerous prestigious magazines and supplements, and features in several books.
As part of the Invitation to View Historic Houses network, individuals or parties of less than 20 who do not wish to pay the minimum group charge are recommended to book through ‘Invitation To View’ on one of our pre-scheduled dates, where you can join like-minded individuals for Tea & a Tour.
