Twelve extended family members booked Blo Norton Hall for Christmas - a first experiment in celebrating all together. And it was perfect. The house is amazing: the Elizabethan atmosphere coupled with all the mod cons. What could be better?!
We loved the servants' bells outside the kitchen, and the quirky floorboards in our bathroom (don't drop an earring or it might disappear!). It was always possible to find privacy so we didn't feel crowded, and the kitchen was great for cooking together. Two stoves, two ovens, two dishwashers, two fridges and a freezer made even the Christmas feast easy to prepare. We lost wifi at one point, but Malcolm the maintenance man turned up promptly to fix it. Some of the beds are not the most comfy, but that was a small defect in an otherwise absolutely wonderful week.More
