“Superb house sety in amazing grounds”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have just enjoyed a weekend at this fabulous house and would recommend it to anyone looking for a top grade weekend retreat with family or friends. Our party consisted of 9 adults and 5 children and the house catered for us perfectly.

The quality of the fixtures and fittings are fantastic, I am notoriously fussy regarding accommodation and can say that this is the first time I have been overwhelmed and undersold! The pictures of the property probably do not do it justice particularly the size of the beautiful grounds it is set within. We were also really appreciative of the welcome Easter cake left for us by the owners and the chocolate bunnies for the kids, it was a nice touch and the cake tasted amazing.

There was more than enough room for our party and it is a fabulous family house that comes alive with lots of people in it. The outside games area was a welcomed additional room that was utilised well by the group.

Being that the location is rural, phone signals are not very good so just a courtesy heads up to anyone looking to stay here. That said, once you are there, you will want to switch your phone off in any event and just relax and enjoy the splendour of the property! We found that signal was best achieved in the formal living area and above bedrooms. There is Wi-Fi provided with the property.

We also booked a private chef that was recommended by the owners for a special 65th birthday dinner for my father. Will Gowing provided an unforgettable evening along with Sonia who was our hostess for the evening. Will's food was second to none and the evening glided effortlessly allowing us to enjoy a stress free and fantastic birthday celebration. I would hugely recommend anyone staying booking Will and his team if you are looking for a special occasion and great food.

In summary, I would have zero hesitation in returning to Scalbeck House, in fact we are already trying to book our return visit!

“The setting is stunning, as is the house – it’s a dream!”
Reviewed 15 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We loved reading about the history of the build, whilst tinged with such sadness it was lovely to walk in each room looking at all the salvaged wood etc.
The addition of the annexe is wonderful and that view from the family bathroom, I’d of been happy sleeping in the bath!

It was perfect for a family reunion, so THANK YOU.

Thank you so much for the review. The folder of the history of the house is of special interest, and the family who built the house in the 1920's still live nearby, so they will be glad to hear of the interest. The location is really why we bought the house! Thank you again. James.

“Perfect Property - Idyllic Location”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We booked the house for our wedding & reception and couldn't have asked for better facilities. The owners were very helpful in recommending local service providers, such as caterers, who were all excellent. The house is spacious, beautifully furnished, has great facilities & has the feel of a family home rather than a holiday let.
The views from the house are spectacular, even in November, and the location is perfect for exploring the north Norfolk coast. The wonderful restaurant at Morston Hall is within walking distance as is The Anchor pub for lunch or evening meals.
We would definitely recommend it for a large gathering & look forward to returning again.

“Amazing house! Can't wait to go back”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I booked Scaldbeck house for my husbands 30th and it did not disappoint. The house is very spacious, great amenities and great location.
The beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms were spacious as we had travel cots for the three babies amongst our party. My husband and I had the master room 'knot' which was huge!
We will highly recommend this house to people we know looking for luxury and relaxation in Norfolk.
