18 Post Street,
Island Hall is an elegant riverside mansion built in the late 1740s, it sits in the heart of bustling Godmanchester, but stepping through the lovingly restored Georgian grandeur of the 18th Century Mansion; you will be wowed as you enter the secluded privacy of the gardens.
The serene setting is perhaps the biggest surprise, the gardens are enfolded by The River Great Ouse: silvery waters curling through and around the gardens with their towering trees, home to resident herons, owls and blue flashed kingfishers. The river embraces The Island which gives the house 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 preserving and maintaining this beautiful house, which our family has had an associated since 1804. It is with genuine pleasure we welcome interested visitors to our much-loved family home it has been enjoyed by many hundreds of parties and tour groups with both general and specialist interests in the last 40 years since its careful restoration.
The tours give visitors a chance to see the classical detail and panelling in the main rooms, handsome pedimented doorcases, carved over mantels and marble chimneypieces, and the elegant oak staircase. The tour includes the history of the family and historical events which shaped the house.

We are a small family run and owned home and pride ourselves on a bespoke service and in providing an experience which is not your typical ‘country house experience’. Yours will be the only group visiting the house at the time and all tours are given by a member of the family. We do not have a cafeteria or restaurant, so each meal is specifically catered for and served within the house itself – this is reflected in our pricing.
20 person cover minimum.
