Today Gresham Hall Estate is a small, family-run business offering a selection of luxury self-catering accommodation in addition to the glampsite. You’ll meet Edward and Georgy during your holiday – along with their young children and Slipper, their super-friendly Border Terrier. She usually heads up the welcome party, often with a ball in her mouth which she’d be delighted for you to throw! The 1200 acre estate boasts woodlands thriving with wildlife, bountiful walks to discover and beautiful gardens to admire. It is still a working farm where the family grow wheat, barley, sugarbeet (which goes to British Sugar) and peas (field to Birds Eye factory in just 90 minutes). They also provide grazing for horses, sheep and farrowing pigs.
But life on the estate wasn’t always like this.
