The Gresham Hall Estate is simply breathtaking and guests choosing to book one of the apartments in the wing or even Gresham Hall will not be disappointed! The entire property has been refurbished and refurnished to a superb standard in 2019 and all four properties can be booked together to accommodate 20 guests, making this the perfect choice for family celebrations.

As you make your way down the impressive, winding, private driveway which leads to Gresham Hall, you will feel the weight of the world leave your shoulders. Set within the beautiful country estate, whether you choose to stay at one of the apartments, or book the hall and become Lord of the Manor for the duration of your holiday, you are sure to be delighted by your tastefully presented and stylish accommodation. Gresham Hall has a bedroom and a shower room across the hallway on the ground floor for less mobile guests. Less mobile couples who would still like to experience this estate will find ground floor accommodation in Apartment 1.

Gresham Hall was built by Colonel Batt (hence the bat over the front door), between October 1907 and April 1908 using wooden scaffolding, labour and materials from the Gresham Estate, and the bricks were baked in the estate kiln. Colonel Batt was very innovative, and after the war he generated his own electricity which served the property for many years, now having been replaced by a more eco-friendly pellet boiler to provide lots of hot water and heating to make the property cosy. The present owner bought the property in the 1980s and the family grew up there, enjoying the beautiful estate to the full. The current renovations were carried out between 2016 and 2019, giving the properties their contemporary feel and all the modern conveniences required by discerning guests for a perfect holiday.

If you can tear yourself away from your sumptuous surroundings, you will find yourself within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and also within the heart of the beautiful North Norfolk coastline. The lovely market towns of Sheringham and Holt are just minutes away and offer lots of great places to eat, drink and shop with Sheringham also offering a wide, sandy beach. Cromer, with its famous pier, is also close by. In fact, head east or west from here and explore lots of pretty seaside towns and villages, each offering unique coastal habitats including sandy or shingle beaches, marshes and pretty quays.

Those visiting Norfolk for the first time should also visit the Norfolk Broads, not least of all because Wroxham, considered by many as the ’Gateway to the Norfolk Broads’, is under 40 minutes away. History buffs will enjoy the Blickling Estate, Holkham Hall, the Muckleburgh Military Collection, Thursford Steam Collection and a host of other attractions too including Cromer Zoo, Langham Glass and the Sheringham to Holt Steam Railway. And of course there are cycle routes, walks and wildlife opportunities galore, all waiting for you to explore. Then return each evening to Gresham Hall for a good night’s sleep and to dream of adventures yet to come. What a joy!

Really beautiful house and grounds in a great part of the country. Was the perfect place for a lovely weekend away with friends.

Gresham Hall is a truly delightful place to stay and surpassed our expectations. In renovating this family home they have retained many of its original Edwardian features and charms – fireplaces, a wide, open staircase and wooden panels (look out for the bat motifs) – and they have combined them with modern kitchen and bathroom facilities. The house is spacious, warm and well-equipped. There were eight adults and two toddlers in our party and there was more than enough room. It was fantastic to eat our meals in the kitchen/diner that opened onto vistas of green fields, a variety of trees and a distant ridge – with pheasants and rabbits frequent visitors to the garden. The house manager and the owner could not have been more pleasant and helpful and even offered to send back some items I left there. I am a veteran renter of holiday homes and this house would be at the top of my list. We can't wait to go back!

An exceptional house, beautifully furnished, very spacious and extremely comfortable. Our party of 7 all enjoyed the house, gardens and local facilities, and we would all highly recommend Gresham Hall. Great showers, lovely fluffy towels, comfy beds, spotlessly clean and stunning views at sunrise and sunset across the fields and woodland areas. A great venue to suit all ages, definitely will return as it is somewhere very special.

I stayed in Gresham Hall with 8 friends and have only positive things to say! We all had a fantastic stay - the Hall exceeded expectations, everything looked brand new and was in pristine condition and the beds where some of the comfiest we’d all slept on! The hot tub was an added perk for us and we were grateful it was already heated and ready to go when we got there. I left behind a metal lantern and Edward kindly agreed to post it back to me - a great example of them going above and beyond for customers. Already planning another visit!

We recently stayed at Gresham Hall for my 30th Birthday, 9 adults, 1 toddler and 3 dogs! The accommodation is beautiful and there was plenty of room for all of us. Edward was so helpful and was there to greet us when we arrived. He arranged a yoga instructor for us and a huge lasagne made by a local caterer was perfect for us to have on our murder mystery evening. The estate is in a great location for beaches, woodland walks and pretty towns. We'll definitely be staying again!

I recently stayed at Gresham Hall for a long weekend to celebrate my 40th and my sisters 30th. Everything was just perfect and we all enjoyed every minute of our stay. We, as a group go away every year for a long weekend and we all said that Gresham hall has been the best house so far. All the rooms have been done to such a high standard. The beds were so comfortable, the linen was so soft and the bathrooms were amazing. Having the Aga in the kitchen was great, it really made that room so cosy, and the jacket potatoes tasted amazing!! The hot tub was lovely, maybe the cover could be put round the other way so when you're in the tub you have views over the field. That would be the only fault I can say about our stay. The lovely welcome pack was a nice treat. Wine, bread, cake and croissants were all there. Coffee machine with coffee pods for us to use. Edward was very accommodating and pleasant and was there to welcome us with his little dog Slipper!! Can honesty say that we will definitely be returning to Gresham Hall for another relaxing girly weekend away!
