What we like about this property

This little cottage, on the grounds of Hales Hall, has an almost dreamy quality to it. A Tudor building, Grade I listed and of historical significance (it was built in 1478 by Henry VII’s attorney general, Sir James Hobart), it’s also a great escape for a family or small group of friends. The property is surrounded in expansive grounds and is well located for exploring Norfolk. It’s a lovely vacation home rental in England that sleeps five guests, but the estate can accommodate larger groups.

Description

This is a beautiful cottage for a family wanting to explore the wilds of Norfolk. Located on a 15th-century estate and surrounded in rolling countryside and farmland, it’s within easy distance of the Broads, east coast beaches and the city of Norwich. But it would be easy to stay put and enjoy the cottage and its idyllic setting. 

The cottage sleeps five guests in three bedrooms, one single on the ground floor and two doubles upstairs. Each has its own character, and views of the surrounding garden and undulating farmland.

Details we like include brick exterior walls with pretty climbing roses, a private walled courtyard garden, original wattle-and-daub ceilings in parts of the home, wooden beams, original wooden doors and striking tiled floors. The estate’s gardens are also delightful – with nine acres of lawns, orchard, topiary, seating areas, barbecues, and even a small moat.

There are two additional residences on the estate that, combined, sleep 25 guests – making it great for weddings and other events. For larger events, there’s also the Great Barn, which at 184ft is the largest brick-built Tudor barn in England.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

The bathroom has a claw-ball roll-top bath, a separate shower cubicle with rainfall showerhead, and underfloor heating. The combined sitting/dining room opens into the garden, and has a TV with Sky HD package. The kitchen has an electric cooker, gas hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine. There is gas central heating. Welcome trays, towels, hairdryers, books and games are provided. There is Wifi, as well as private parking for up to 12 cars.

AROUND

Hales Hall is located just south of the small market town of Loddon, and about 15 miles southeast of Norwich. The property is surrounded by unspoilt countryside, farms and woodland, and is just a short drive from the Broads National Park and spectacular (often unpopulated) sandy beaches. Southwold, on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, is about 17 miles away.

For a novel route to the Broads, the owners suggest taking the Reedham Chain Ferry across the River Yare. Explore the waterways on foot or take to a kayak or canoe. This is also a great region for exploring by bike.

For arts and culture (or retail therapy), the cathedral city of Norwich is within easy reach. And the region has a growing reputation for food – with great pubs and restaurants, cafes and farm shops. The market towns of Beccles and Bungay are both 5 miles away. The nearest shop is 0.7 miles away, and the nearest pub 1.9 miles.

LOCATION

Loddon, Norfolk, England, UK. Nearest airport: Norwich (c. 15 miles).

BEST TIME TO VISIT: The garden is beautiful in summer, countryside walks and fireside comfort, meadows and woodland bursting into life in the spring, and local produce at its best in the autumn.
