Anstey Hall

Anstey Hall is one of the grander houses in Trumpington

This fine house was built by Antony Thompson around 1670 on the site of a medieval manor. It was owned by the Thompson family from 1637-1748, the Anstey family from 1748-1838 and the Foster family from 1838-1941, and extended in the late 1800s.

It is now a wedding venue and offers bed & breakfast.
