The Old Hall in Saxlingham Nethergate is absolutely breathtaking in all respects. The house itself retains all the charm built up over many centuries but has all the modern amenities that made our stay comfortable. Our extended family group ranged in aged from 11 to 70+ and everyone was thrilled with the facilities - from the cosy kitchen complete with Aga, where the whole family could gather for breakfast or a chat over a cup of tea through to the beautiful bedrooms. The younger members shared the attic room and made full use of the home cinema facilities!!
We stayed for a long weekend and really felt we could have stayed much longer and not run out of things to do and explore, even in the middle of November (in the summer, the grounds must be spectacular). I was very grateful for Janine's recommendations for caterers to undertake the catering at the house for our celebration meal on the Saturday night - the house with roaring log fires and the table set for 16 was a fantastic setting and Bespoke, the caterers, did us proud. Janine's other suggestions were spot on and we had great fun with archery and a fish and chip lunch on the Sunday. All of us enjoyed walking around the extensive grounds and watching the wildlife (and the chickens and peacocks!), as well as exploring the beautiful countryside around the Old Hall.
All in all, a fantastic and memorable stay made even better by Janine's thoughtful touches - even our small dog was thought of and some treats left for him.
