This extended 18th century red-brick mansion was originally built as a family home by a Norwich sugar merchant, with a walled garden and now boasting stylish interiors furnished with convivial groups of sofas and armchairs. Friendly staff are on hand to welcome guests, and the ambience is relaxed in the small bar area and tranquil dining room.


The owners, James Holliday and Anna Dutton, have built their careers in the hospitality business and lead a close-knit and friendly team of personable, helpful staff who go the extra mile to ensure the hotel meets expectations. Weddings are a focus here, but large events are discreetly held in an adjacent, purpose-built venue.
