Went to the old hall for a 50th Birthday celebration. What a fantastic place, lovely lounge areas, open fires and bathrooms galore. Unlike many large houses the atmosphere inside is homely and warm. Set in lovely grounds and a lovely village I would recommend to anyone wanting a getaway for a large group of family or friends. Great value too. Fantastic!

“Fabulous place for a birthday celebration”

We spent a memorable weekend at The Old Hall in October, celebrating my husband's 60th birthday with our children and old friends. It is a stunning house - immaculately presented and extremely well equipped. Janine was very helpful throughout the booking process and she met us on arrival to show us around, leaving us with lovely cake and chilled champagne. Although the weather was rather dull (who knew damp tennis could be such fun) it really didn't matter - with the log fires burning,and the candlelight, everything looked quite magical. Peter Harrison (Have Knives, Will Travel) made us a wonderful dinner on Saturday, and otherwise we enjoyed the warmth and the challenge of the Aga in the beautiful kitchen. Although the house is so large, it manages to feel remarkable cosy and has a great atmosphere - the weekend went so fast - we really didn't want to leave. It certainly exceeded our expectations and we would love to visit again in the summer and be able to make full use of the huge garden, pool and barbeque. Don't hesitate to visit - you won't be disappointed.

“Family Holiday of a Lifetime - Simply Magical”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent a week at the Old Hall in August 2015 with our two young children and two other families with children. It was the best family holiday we have ever had.

The property is stunning. With three large sitting rooms you and your guests are never in each other's way, and yet you can also have a comfortable time lounging together. Each bedroom has character and charm and the kids' bunk room at the top is fun. The pool and extensive grounds are perfect for children and adults alike to explore. The geese, chickens, ducks, and sheep were so sweet that we felt like we were living in a Beatrix Potter storybook.

Despite the historic age of the house, it also has every modern comfort - beautiful linens, powerful hot water, a Nespresso coffee maker, etc. Janine has thought of EVERYTHING. The children's play room is stocked with a wonderful collection of toys and games and in the adult sitting area we found a selection of brand-new movie releases. The library also has a wonderful selection of books. Janine is a consummate hostess and has done everything to ensure your comfort. Housekeeper Becs runs a very tight ship and the house is immaculate.

The caterers recommended by Janine, Bespoke, are amazing. We had them bring dinner in every night and we just reheated and served. Everyone was crazy about the food and it was so nice not to worry about cooking for our group.

We also made great use of the activities recommended by Janine: tennis lessons for the kids, a day of archery for everyone, fish and chip van one night, a canoe tour of the broads, and family photos by a local photographer.

There is so much to do, and yet the Old Hall is also the perfect place to relax and connect with your family and friends. This is a perfect location for a mixed-age gathering and at various times we had four generations represented.

We hope to return to the Old Hall and would recommend this wonderful house to anyone we know!
