Ingatestone Hall is a Grade I listed 16th-century manor house in Essex, England. It is located outside the village of Ingatestone, approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) south west of Chelmsford and 25 miles (40 km) north east of London. The house was built by Sir William Petre, and his descendants (the Barons Petre) live in the house to this day. Part of the house is leased out as offices while the current Lord Petre's son and heir apparent lives in a private wing with his family.

The hall is open to the public on selected afternoons between Easter and September.

  • Entry price is good and location are nice. The house was impressive and the entertainment, courtesy of the Morris dancers was good. However the lack of a picnic area and being told to eat our picnic off site was unacceptable. It would've received a higher score had these facilities been in place for those that can't afford expensive coffee shops.
  • A really interesting place to visit. An excellent tour guide explained the history of the house and the people who lived here. We now need to go back and see all the artifacts, there were so many we didn't have time to see them all. Lovely tea rooms.
