“The simply perfect house for a large party”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Eleven friends go away every year for our 'reunion' and we have been doing so for seven years now. I can honestly say that 'The Old Hall' was simply perfect. As we pulled up on the sweeping drive, to be greeted by the most amazing house, I honestly thought we were lost. Reassuringly though, Janine and her husband welcomed us at the front door with champagne and cupcakes and the rest is history!
We managed to fit in a Quad Bike Safari & Clay Pigeon Shoot, Fish and Chips from the brilliant 'Bill', Lunch on 'Serenity' along The Broads, the most wonderful day of Beauty Treatments by Yolande & an attempt at tennis & swimming!
The Old Hall itself is wonderful, there are so many gorgeous spaces to choose from. There are enough rooms to all pile onto the sofas in one, or disappear with a good book in another.
The kitchen was a particular favourite with everyone, as well as the beautiful Pool House room.
Grounds to stroll about in, peacocks to admire and the most elegant and friendly chickens we have ever come across!

We will definitely be back.

“Amazing home from home great for family get together”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Spent 10 days at this marvelous house with my girls and their friends and my family. Thirteen of us in total. The house is beautiful and the grounds amazing. Huge amount of space for everyone. Fantastic kitchen so well equipped, 3 different living rooms, the great dining room - and a cinema room experience upstairs for the kids. Outside the grounds are immense and stunning - and peacocks, chickens and geese quietly wander around. The pool is well maintained and the pavilion next to it was a great chill space for the kids. Janine was so helpful - and we did it all! External caterers, Archery, Beauty treatments - and a Norfolk Broads day cruise. Overall a fabulous get away.

“The most perfect place for a family holiday- so much more to this property when you actually get there!'”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A simply stunning house- immaculately decorated with such thought for every activity.
We arrived from all over England - family and friends - aged 2-74, and quite simply didn't need to go anywhere else!
A huge kitchen - better stocked than mine ! and a larder more than large enough for supplies for 14.
Bedrooms and bathrooms for all were stunning- and soo comfortable.
There were so many different corners of the most beautiful gardens we could have dined in - all of us outside in I have to say glorious weather - such a treat!

Copious sun- loungers allowed the lazier ones to chill by the pool (lovely and warm ) while the rest of us played pretty competitive tennis - starting early most mornings- after the yoga on the lawn!
The small people adored feeding the chickens and the peacocks out of the kitchen window- and if you needed to have a quiet spot inside or outside there were more than enough views to choose from.
The house has a gentle friendly atmosphere and we could see how a winter/ christmas stay would be enchanting.
I am sorry to say the house and grounds were so accommodating that only a few of us ventured to the broads for a day - we were having such a relaxed time back at the house!.
Forget driving for hours to Cornwall, Norfolk is stunningly beautiful, we will have to go back to see and do more, including all the possible activities that the owners will lay on if asked.

“Amazing house for a really magical experience”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I spent my birthday celebration at The Old Hall with a group of friends and we had the most amazing stay. The house is in a beautiful location in Norfolk and is set on 17 acres of incredible gardens - we were all saying we felt like we were in Downton Abbey!

The house is full of character, original features combined with all the mod cons to make the stay incredibly comfortable - from the Aga stove in the kitchen to the 16th century beams in the dining room.

We did the restaurant at home experience on Sat night and it was great - the caterers were really professional and the food was fab.

I would highly recommend The Old Hall for anyone who is looking for something really special.
