A Delightful Retreat

From the minute you start up the winding drive, a slower pace of life takes over...

Dotted around a beautiful working estate the properties of Gresham Hall Estate have landscaped grounds and glorious walks to explore. Our properties are your country escape. Every generation will appreciate the chance to roam free among the ancient trees and manicured lawns, before retiring inside to enjoy the magnificent, newly restored, Edwardian hall; the enchanting cottage hidden in the woods; or the beautiful barn conversion.

Beach Life

With five of the UK's best beaches (as voted by Condé Nast Traveller) within an easy striking distance, will you pick Sheringham or Cromer, Holkham or Wells-next-the-Sea? Cromer's famous pier is perfect for strolling along, before catching a show in the theatre pavilion. Sheringham has all the romance of an age-old seaside village. A little drive down the coast road to the gorgeous local beaches at Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea, Blakeney and Brancaster... Did someone say fish and chips and ice-cream?

A Hot Tub With A View

Is there anything better than gazing out at glorious acres of countryside in your private hot tub? Rain or shine, these bowers of bubbling bliss are the place to chat, day-dream and put the world to rights.

Foodies Ahoy

The North Norfolk coastline is known for its world beating food, with local beaches like Sheringham selling fresh fish everywhere, even the pubs. Cromer crabs (from another local beach) are justifiably famous for their flavour and white meat. Other local highlights include Brancaster mussels, Stiffkey cockles and succulent samphire, from the tidal salt marshes.

Dining and Wining

This area of Norfolk is home to some of the country's most enticing gastro-pubs and restaurants, all fuelled by spectacular local produce. Whether that's Michelin-starred Morston Hall, the Wheatsheaf bistro or a traditional pub lunch at The Gunton Arms.

Landscaped Gardens

Guests frequently mention it's a little too hard to leave the estate, and you'd be forgiven for spending your time wandering the grounds, catching up with your guests or playing a game of tennis. That way it's even easier to get back for drinks or a cup of tea!

History Buffs

Local Sheringham offers a spectacular scenic steam ride along the coast, on the North Norfolk Railway, also called the Poppy line. Other local highlights include Blickling Estate, Holkham Hall, the Muckleburgh Military Collection and the Thursford Steam Collection.

National Trust

There are three fabulous National Trust properties within easy striking distance, as well as the famous Houghton Hall, built by Britain's first Prime Minister Sir Robert Walpole. Try Felbrigg Hall's walled garden, the rhododendrons at Sheringham Park (a Norfolk speciality) or Blickling Estate's enormous formal garden, complete with parterre, orangery and temple!

Children Rules

Sometimes your precious darlings just need to blow off steam and we have a plethora of local attractions to keep them busy. Cuddle an adorable donkey at the Redwings horse sanctuary, get lost in the Maize Maze at Metton, or discover over 200 species of South American animals at the famous Amazona Zoo. For those who, ahem, have even more energy to burn, try the Hilltop Outdoor Centre in Sheringham.

Norfolk Broads

The Norfolk Broads is not only the UK's largest nationally protected wetland, but an amazing haven for wildlife. But did you know they are man-made? Created when people dug for peat in medieval times, they were later flooded and became the navigable rivers and lakes you see today.
