This is an Elizabethan manor house standing in unspoilt countryside in North Norfolk, and a short drive from Mundesley beach. Boasting an outdoor heated swimming pool set in an attractive red brick walled garden. The grounds include acres of manicured lawns plus an Elizabethan knot garden, while indoors the long medieval dining hall seats up to 25 people and is perfect for banquets.
The house has existed since the 11th Century when the manor was first granted by William the Conqueror. During the early 18th Century, the Hall was the home of William Talman, royal architect to the court of James I and architect of some of England's finest country houses, including Chatsworth House in Derbyshire. Following a ten-year restoration project by its owners, the Hall is now an immensely welcoming home with many period features, including 17th century portraits, tapestries and antique furniture as well as those all-essential country house sofas.
The villa is set in six acres of formal and informal grounds that include a peaceful walled garden with a summer house, fountain, knot garden and swimming pool (available to use between May 1 and September 30). Beyond the child-friendly lawn at the front of the Hall is a lime tree walk, statuary, old moat and wild flower meadow.
Situated between Aylsham and North Walsham,the villa lies in an extremely peaceful setting at the end of a long drive off a quiet country lane. There is ample open parking as well as undercover parking for two cars.
