If you are looking for a proper country house with oak panelling, log fires, leaded light windows and fantastic gardens you have found it - you can see more photographs on our website theoldhalldotnet. Featured in The Independent as one of the 50 best British breaks - we were in the luxury section along with Chewton Glen and Le Manoir, also featured In The Sunday Times and Good Housekeeping magazine, once again next to Le Manoir! Here's what a recent guest had to say - 'What a staggering house it is. Thank you for providing the most perfect setting for the best weekend of my life. Friends travelled from as far as Toronto and Hong Kong to be here and it did not disappoint. Archery, fish and chips, long baths, swims, log fires, proper sleeps and the most wonderful of friends. I will never forget our Norfolk jaunt at The Old Hall.' As soon as you enter the atmospheric Great Hall you know that you have arrived at a very special place - the perfect backdrop for family parties, celebrations and get-togethers. Grade Two* listed with a plethora of original features; leaded light windows, Jacobean fireplaces, decorative plaster ceilings and an abundance of oak beams and panelling. This family owned house has been updated for modern living without losing it's atmosphere and authenticity. Sleeping up to 18 - ideally maximum of 14 adults and 4 children The Old Hall is offered an an exclusive basis for holidays or long week-end breaks and whilst offered on self catering basis we can provide highly rated caterers ranging from a formal dinner with a private chef and waitresses service to fish and chips cooked in the garden. We have 7 bedrooms, 3 are en-suite, plus we have a funky children's dorm in the attic sleeping up to 4 children, although lots of adults sleep there too. Set in 17 acres with a private pool, tennis court, croquet lawn and woodlands you can escape from the world and focus on simple pleasures. The gardens are a stunning feature and contain spectacular yew hedges, topiary and what remains of the old moat. Children have the freedom to run around and explore with a sense of adventure - escaping to the tree house or building a den in the woods when they need a break from adults or if you need a break from them! If you have older children we can organise camping in the grounds in bell tents. There is wildlife in abundance here - muntjac and occasionally other deer, foxes, hares, rabbits, owls, green woodpeckers and house martins nesting in the eaves. Badgers and otters have been spotted in the village. In addition we have our own hens, geese and peacocks. There's lots to see and do for all ages making use of the extensive grounds or you can just simply relax. We can organise a range of activities on your behalf - shooting, archery, bushcraft, canoeing and tennis lessons to name but a few. There are extensive walks right from the door. If you'd rather be pampered we can arrange for a Champney's trained therapist to visit you here. If you want to travel further afield we can point you in the right direction to explore the best that Norfolk and Suffolk have to offer whether that's the stunning North Norfolk coast or Southwold, Walberswick and the Suffolk coast, the Norfolk Broads, historic houses and museums, local breweries or magical childen's attractions such as Bewilderwood, Banham Zoo and The Dinosuar Adventure Park. Our own dogs love it here and we are very happy to welcome yours by prior arrangement and will even provide them with treats.More

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
