Details

For over 400 years the property was owned by the Bishops of Norwich, they held court and entertained medieval kings and queens. There are 13th century wall paintings in the guest areas of the house and a ruined gatehouse in the garden.
The rooms at South Elmham Hall are spacious and all have en-suite bathrooms, all have views of the grounds and surrounding countryside. There is a sitting room with an open log fire available to guests. Meals are served in our converted barn where we have a fully licensed bar, an expresso coffee machine and restaurant kitchen.

South Elmham Hall has a series of way marked trails around the surrounding farmland, the main attraction for visitors is the mysterious and enigmatic ruin of the Minster about 15 minutes walk from the house. The Minster is thought to have been built at the same time as Norwich cathedral by the first Bishop but its origins are far older. An AA walking guide has a walk starting here taking in both the Minster ad St Peters Brewery, another historic building within an hours walking. The local market towns of Bungay, Harleston and Halesworth are a 15 minute drive away, while Southwold and the coast are about a 30 minute drive. Children welcome from any age.
