It has been decorated in a style sympathetic to its age and offers an ideal environment for celebrations and large family gatherings in an atmosphere of relaxed opulence.

Two of the reception rooms provide an ideal space for adults to sit and relax, whilst the entertainment room offers state of the art projector cinema system with surround sound.

The Orchard, Jinny and Master suites also have sofas, whilst the Jack, Jill and Bay suites come with additional day beds.The Master suite is huge with its own four poster bed, large walk in dressing area and bathroom with roll top bath, double wash hand basins and separate shower.

The spacious kitchen is designed to allow families and friends to get together and cook or eat together, whilst the formal dining room, with seating for 14 to 16 and impressive chandelier and fire place forms the perfect backdrop for your celebratory meal.

Fantastic House for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 families who stayed at the Grange over the May bank holiday weekend. There were 23 of us in total (including the children) and there was easily enough space to fit us all in with plenty of sofa beds and pull out beds to accommodate. The House itself has a great lay out with the added bonus of a projector cinema room and games rooms for the children. The gardens and grounds are very spacious and we made good use of the small playground area and the tennis courts. The Grange is conveniently located near the North Norfolk coast and we made our way there for an afternoon. We had an amazing time and look forward to returning next year.

A wonderful house!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the grange for my husband's 40th birthday with 12 friends, the house was better than described and by the photos, that don't do it justice. If you want a weekend away with friends and family this is just the place! All the rooms are huge. There is a touch of grandeur about the house which we loved, we hired grey goose archery for Saturday morning on the lawn, then had a veggie afternoon. Arranged for Chef Keith to come in and cook us a wonderful 3 course meal served by Jen. Which we all got dressed up for!

Sunday we arranged for a massage therapist come in and treat all our guests to a back and shoulder massage, It was a truly wonderful weekend! Elaine the owner and Dawn the house keeper were both lovely to deal with and very helpful x thank you again for letting us stay in your house x

Superb house for large parties

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family weekend at the Grange to celebrate a special birthday. There was plenty of room for our party of 18. The bedrooms are really spacious and the three living rooms are comfortable and well equipped. The games room was much appreciated, as was the TV room with its overhead projector. We used the recommended caterers for our celebration meal, which worked really well. The patio and garden are great and the children loved the tree swing. A really special place to stay.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 family members staying at The Grange for a long weekend to celebrate my wife's and my 50th birthdays. The bedrooms and sitting rooms are all large and comfortable, and we enjoyed a big dinner on the Saturday night in the excellent dining room (prepared by ourselves in the large kitchen). We had a lovely BBQ on the terrace on the Sunday afternoon, and also used the tennis court and games room for some mini competitions over the weekend (as well as mini golf in Hunstanton) to keep everyone active. We watched a film in the cinema room on the Sunday evening. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Would definitely recommend.

The most amazing long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the grange for a long weekend with family and friends for a celebration and it was the perfect venue. There was 16 of us and we didn't feel like we were tripping over eachother as the house is so large! Kitchen and garden were amazing we also hired the chef recommended by the grange and they didn't disappoint. The dining room was a perfect location for our meal. All in all a wonderful stay and will be booking to come back, thank you.

Hen weekend

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for a surprise hen weekend and let's just say it didn't disappoint. Everyone was overwhelmed by this beautiful house and it couldn't have been more perfect for the weekend. The property has everything we could have needed and more and the facilities were great for the size party we had. On arrival we were met by Dawn who gave us a thorough tour of the house and was very helpful throughout the weekend and of course was so lovely. I was there with the majority of my family who have all said they would love to return one day and I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone. Overall fab weekend and fab house
