Had we known, we could have stayed overnight as they provide beautifully appointed rooms with antiques and the room price includes a full cooked breakfast. Beautifully restored grand home circa 1800's. I... More

In a word .... AMAZING. I just loved loved loved this place. First of all the house is just beautiful. A majestic 1800's restoration. It is also in an awesome location nestled into the valley with awesome views. Of course if you come here at night you won't see the surrounding countryside. But then you step,inside to a different era... More

We sat in the bay window overlooking the garden while the full moon rose over the hills. The food was delicious, with local produce and home grown pork. We would love to know the secret of the preserved lemon and potato soup. If you are spending time in New Norfolk, this is one place you should not miss.
