Langley Grange is a late Georgian country house near the Norfolk Broads. It’s suitable for holidays and celebrations with family and friends.
The house sleeps up to 21 guests in10 bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms are en-suite (1 has an adjacent shower room) and there are three other bathrooms. One of the bedrooms is on the ground floor, with a shower room and loo just next door.
Downstairs, there is a large, modern kitchen, with a seating area and a conservatory that seats up to 22 on a beautifully long table. There is also a comfortable drawing room with an open fire, a snooker room and two further reception rooms. There’s a pretty indoor swimming pool, bedecked with Venetian frescoes, and a shower room.
Langley has lots of outdoor space for summer barbecues and admiring the views. There’s an all-weather tennis court and a second swimming pool, for summer days when bathing outside is a complete treat. Three-day mid-week stays are available from £2,850.
Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature
“One of the most striking things about Langley Grange is its quiet friendliness. The house was recently restored with guests in mind, and it’s a place you can really kick-back, relax and have fun.”
About The Location
Langley Grange is 15 minutes’ drive from Norwich. Norwich is served by the Great Eastern Train Line, running main-line trains from London. The nearest shops to the house are within Loddon, a pretty little market town that lies on the boundary of the Norfolk Broads.
Should you wish to visit the sea, Great Yarmouth is about half an hour’s drive.
Things To Do
Norwich itself is worth a day-trip, as it has a cathedral, castle and lots of shops. Should you wish to mess about on the river, you can hire a boat from the wharf at Loddon, and push off for a picnic.
If you’d like a day at the beach, Southwold is within a 40 minutes’ drive, as are several country houses to visit, and Pleasurewood Hills, a small theme park. If you’d like to kit out a hamper and stomp a divot, the Langley Abbey Estate is nearby, with its brilliant polo days.
An archaeological excavation at Langley Grange in 2001 revealed a pit containing flint and pottery debris which can be dated to between BC 3900 and BC 2900. This discovery makes an important addition to the map of Neolithic Norfolk. ‘Neolithic’ or ‘the New Stone Age’ describes the period from about BC 4500 to BC 2000 when farming started to become the main source of food. When you come to Langley Grange you can see a display case describing the excavation and exhibiting some of the finds.
