Nestled down a quiet lane in the beautiful North Norfolk countryside, just 20 minutes from unspoiled sandy beaches that run for miles, is Gunthorpe Hall – A Georgian/Victorian Hall sympathetically restored as a private home, providing comfort and entertaining surroundings whilst retaining the original charm of the property.
Curl up by a log fire with a drink and good book, take a stroll through beautiful formal gardens, past the topiary beavers, down the monkey puzzle lawn to a magical pond before arriving at the private lake where you can fish or have a wild-swim. Get active with a game of croquet or badminton…
Gunthorpe Hall was in part designed by Sir John Soane and has been lovingly restored as a private home to be used by the owners and shared with others. Entry is through the large Entrance Hall and into the expansive Oak Hall, with fine carved oak staircase and and fire surround with a wood burning stove, It hosts a grand piano and a good stereo system with speakers throughout the ground reception rooms. Off the Oak Hall lies the drawing room with access to the formal gardens, and also the billiard room with a ‘nearly’ full size snooker table.
The grounds offer a unique opportunity for you to host on-site games such as clay pigeon shooting, archery and treasure hunts, or other games can be arranged. There are numerous locations for drinks, picnics and barbecues during your stay.
Our large Victorian walled vegetable garden and flock of sheep inspire the delicious meals prepared by the Gunthorpe Hall Team. We can fully cater for your stay or provide just a special dinner (covid-depending) so you and your guests can relax – or you can entirely self-cater.
We are in the perfect location to take advantage of a huge number of local attractions, including the Thursford Museum & Christmas Spectacular (which is well worth a visit even when the show is ‘covid-cancelled’), fantastic eateries, quaint villages, a huge variety of ancient buildings and Churches, a stunning variety of beaches and walks galore…
Gunthorpe Hall can offer you a perfect home-from-home at any time of year.
