Quintessential Elizabethan country house oozing period features but relaxed, friendly and welcoming - the perfect place to get-together for that special celebration or just to get-away from it all.

Lo spazio
Featured in The Sunday Times and The Independent - as one of the 50 best British breaks. Featured in Good Housekeeping February “It's perfect for a family celebration" said David Wickers the Travel Editor who hosted his father in law's 90th birthday here.

Stunning Great Hall for candlelit dinners, 3 reception rooms with roaring fires plus kids chill out den and poolside pavilion. Sleeps 18 in eight bedrooms. Set in 17 acres with glorious gardens, heated swimming pool (May to Sept), tennis court, croquet lawn and woodland with camp fire and treehouse.

Spacious and luxurious with a relaxed family feel this proper country house is perfect for family holidays, celebrations, get-togethers or just getting away from it all. It was our family home so is very well equipped and of course kids and dogs are very welcome.

We sleep up to 18 in 8 bedrooms - ideally 14 adults and 4 children. Our bedrooms are arranged as follows:

3 very large super-king / king with en-suites, 2 with dressing rooms (which can accomodate 'put up beds')
2 doubles
2 twins - one of which can be a super-king
funky attic dorm sleeping 4 - full sized beds but decor more suited to children / teenagers, cinema screen in here
family bathroom plus extra loo

We also have two additional loos downstairs.

All beds have Egyptian cotton linen and we provide Noble Isle shower gels and soaps.

We can provide a couple of travel cots and high chairs plus we have 3 additional 'put up beds' available on request at an additional cost of £50 per bed.

Detailed Description:

You enter the house through the original oak studded front door which leads to the Great Hall with a beautiful 17th Century oak inlaid fireplace. This is an incredibly atmospheric room especially when lit by candle light in the evening. Our main dining table is here which seats 16 but can be extended.

There are 3 more reception rooms including the drawing room with an enormous 15th Century inglenook fireplace, the paneled yellow sitting room with French windows leading to the croquet lawn and a very large sitting room overlooking the gardens with French windows leading to the terrace. We provide logs and coal for our open fires.

There is a small library too and we have turned our housekeepers sitting room into a children's chill out den with easy access to an enclosed courtyard.

The large country style kitchen has an electric 4 oven aga, seating for 8 and lots of cookery books. In addition we have an electric hob and oven.

As you would expect there is a laundry room, a traditional pantry and a boot room.

Two staircases lead to the first floor. The master bedroom suite - with a super-king bed has spectacular views over the gardens and comprises both a shower room and a bathroom / dressing room.

There are two large additional bedrooms of historical interest - a king and a super-king - both with en-suite bathrooms along with a twin bedded room and a room containing an original 17th Century four poster bed.

On the third floor there is a double room with an original French bed, a bedroom than can either be a twin or a super-king, a family bathroom and an attic room with a children's dorm sleeping up to 4 - these are full sized beds with good quality mattresses but the decor is slightly funky and is really aimed at children / teenagers.

Also located in the attic is a home cinema with a sofa, bean bags, an extensive DVD library and of course popcorn!

We offer The Old Hall on a self catering basis but can offer a range of catering options -from a waitress served dinner cooked on site by a Michelin rated chef through to freshly cooked fish and chips to eat in the garden or around a roaring fire depending upon the season. There is a highly rated gastro pub within 10 minutes drive (or you can walk across the fields).

There are lots of things to see and do in the area but if you prefer to stay closer to home we can arrange a host of activities to suit all ages in our extensive grounds - archery, shooting, bush craft for kids, tennis lessons.

If you prefer to organise your own fun there is plenty to do both outside or in with woods to explore, dens to build and cupboards full of family games to suit all ages.

We have an outdoor heated swimming pool which is available from May until the end of September. There is tennis, croquet and ping-pong for the competitive or if you prefer to be pampered a Champneys trained beauty therapist can visit the house.

Apologies but we are unable to accomodate weddings or accept stag / hen parties without permission from our insurance company - so please let me know at the time of booking if this is the purpose of your visit.

Accesso per gli ospiti
The whole house and grounds are yours to explore and enjoy - there are just a couple of small rooms that we keep locked for storing laundry and other boring household items.

If we don’t have guests staying immediately before or after you then we are very happy to be flexible with arrival and departure times - where possible we will try to welcome you from 1pm so that you can get settled before the rest of your guests arrive.

I live in Norfolk in England with my husband, two sons and our family dog but spend as much time as possible at our holiday house in Greece. We're well travelled both for work and pleasure. The Old Hall was our family home for 13 years but we live in North Norfolk now and have been offering the house to guests for 5 years.
