Situated nearby to Loddon and Beccles our gardens surround Raveningham Hall, home to Sir Nicholas and Lady Bacon (and home to the Bacon family since 1735).
Enjoy the beauty of our varied and ever-changing floral seasons. The Gardens are set out as the Edwardian plans with large herbaceous borders surrounding a Victorian walled kitchen garden. In the 1960s the planting was enhanced by the inspiration of Priscilla, Lady Bacon an energetic plantswoman who collected many rare species from around the world transforming the garden over 50 years. The walled kitchen garden was brought back to full working order in the last 20 years and is now producing fruit and vegetables for the House. There is a fine late 19th century Boulton and Paul range of glasshouses, stocked conservatory and melon pits, all in working order.
A Millennium project by Nicholas Bacon to build a lake on the North side of the House is now firmly established as is an Arboretum that was planted after the destruction of a wood in the 1987 gale; this gave an opportunity to plant a large variety of trees and shrubs under a plan designed by the eminent plantsman Roy Lancaster. New additions to the garden include a Herb Garden, a Stumpery and a garden designed around Francis Bacon’s essays based on the passage of time.
The main specialities of the garden are snowdrops followed by bulbs in early spring, later in the season agapanthus are a main feature. Our Gardens are circa 10 acres all in a glorious 18th Century parkland setting with sculpture by Susan Bacon in and around the gardens. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.

Stripped down and straight-talking creative marketing
Naked is a creative marketing agency who since 2002 has believed that professional quality design and marketing shouldn’t be out of reach for businesses with smaller budgets. Specialising in branding, design and digital marketing, we solve challenges for businesses with creativity and an open and honest, stripped down approach. It’s why we’re called Naked and its why our clients continue to work with us year after year.
Get noticed, get Naked
We're not what you might have come to expect from a creative agency. You won’t find flashy awards, bloated teams, meaningless jargon or fancy offices with a bowl of skittles and a pool table. Naked takes a stripped down, no-nonsense approach that is designed to suit small and medium businesses. We make it our mission to expose the greatness of every business we work with – using creative ideas, inspirational design and intelligent marketing.
A small but perfectly formed team
Our team of ‘nudists’ all come with a positive, can-do attitude, a passion for delivering better and an inbuilt dislike to blinding clients with science. Each with bundles of experience, they are the people that will not only do your work but deal with you directly too.
Marketing theory is pretty pointless unless it can be translated into plans and campaigns that sing. And that’s why you need to get Naked. We understand what will make the difference and how to give you the edge.
Who are you? How do you portray your business to the outside world, or your employees? What’s your look, feel, personality, tone of voice? We’ll take you through the fundamentals and bring ‘you’ to life.
Great design has an impact, it inspires, it lives with you - and it sells. The perception of you and your communication lives or dies by the quality of your design. Don’t get it wrong. We’re here to make sure you get it right.
There’s no such thing as a marketing strategy without digital these days. But we won’t let it be the minefield everyone makes it out to be. Let us strip away the myths and make digital actually work for you.
For a leaner, no-nonsense approach to creative marketing, isn’t it time you got Naked?
If you’ve got a project or challenge in mind, call us on 01953 850211 or email email@example.com to arrange a no-obligation chat to find out how we can help.
You’ll find us at 18 Market Place, Hingham, Norfolk NR9 4AF or online at www.nakedmarketing.co.uk
