About Gresham Hall Estate

Gresham Hall is an Edwardian manor house just west of Cromer, in north Norfolk, and is perfect for a proper British countryside holiday. The house was renovated in 2019, and is made up of four self-contained properties that can be rented together for up to 20 guests.

Upper Wing Apartment – sleeps 4

The Upper Wing is on the second floor of the hall, and has sloping ceilings. There are two bedrooms (one en-suite), both with king size beds (one of which can be separated into twins). There’s a sitting room, small kitchen and a family bathroom.

Ground Wing Apartment – sleeps 2

The Ground Floor Apartment has access for those who’d rather avoid stairs (although there are three steps up into the garden). There is one bedroom and bathroom, a sitting room and kitchen.

Middle Wing Apartment – sleeps 4

The Middle Wing apartment has two en-suite bedrooms, a television room (with sofa bed), a sitting room and a kitchen with a table that seats 6.

Main House – sleeps 10

The main part of the house has five bedrooms, sleeping up to ten guests. Two of the bedrooms are super kings that can be converted to twin beds, and one is on the ground floor. All are en-suite, and one of the bedrooms has its own slipper bath, perfect for Cadbury’s Flake fantasists. The master bedroom has a four-poster bed, and views over the garden.

The Main House has plenty of room for all guests to be together, although only ten can dine together, either in the kitchen or the dining room (excellent excuse for splitting the children from the grownups, and doing high tea and a dinner). There’s a large, comfortable drawing room (with a ravishing Arts and Crafts influenced ceiling) and open fire. The entrance hall has deep sofas and a wood-burning stove. The walls are wood-panelled, and have cricket bat motifs – the hall was originally built by Colonel Batt.

Outside Space

The Main House and Apartments share the extensive gardens, within which are a tennis court, hot tub and lots of shrubbery and spinneys, for den-building or endless treasure hunts.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“This is a great house for flexible accommodation, if you’ve got a mix of family and friends of different ages, with different dinner-time needs and so on. Very easy to have a raucous, late dinner party, with space for the early-risers to retire in peace.”

About the Location

Gresham Hall is about three miles from the coast, and the seaside town of Cromer. Cromer has a mainline train station, and lots of taxis that will pop out to Gresham. A train journey from London is around four hours.

Things To Do

Gresham Hall is very close to a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just west of the North Norfolk coastline. The traditional British seaside towns of Sheringham and Holt are nearby, both have lovely, wide sandy beaches and places to buy whelks and cockles in little cups. The Norfolk coast is famous for its crabbing, especially from the Cromer pier.

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!
