A beautifully traditional new-build with handmade oak banisters and period furniture. Step into a large drawing room, where you find a warm, sociable atmosphere with squashy sofas and comfy chairs. Breakfast is served in here or in the conservatory. One bedroom is cosy and chintzy, the other is larger and more neutral; brand-new bathrooms gleam. Amanda looks after you well; she’s lived in Norfolk most of her life and is delighted to advise. There are footpaths from the door and plenty to see, starting with Walpole’s Houghton Hall, a short walk. A bucolic setting for a profoundly comfortable stay, perfect for country enthusiasts.
