'Wiveton Hall, Blakeney - large, luxury self catering for up to nine - deep in North Norfolk's most beautiful landscape. Enjoy huge, warm, elegant rooms - traditionally furnished; roaring fires; romantic woodlands and marshes; superb walks and bird watching
is one of north Norfolk's secret architectural gems. It is an impressive, flint-faced, Dutch-gabled hall built in the 17th century by a prosperous merchant on what had been monastic land. At that time the sea came almost up to the doorstep and nearby Blakeney and Cley were thriving ports.Accommodation:
In the Edwardian period a Jacobean-style wing was added to provide the then essential billiard room, ball room and gun room - rooms which have since been converted into wonderfully spacious living accommodation. It is this self-contained wing (facing you in the photo above) with its own entrances, that is available to rent. It sleeps eight, including one bedroom with a four-poster bed, but extra bedrooms may also be available. The wing is furnished throughout with the kind of family furniture and pictures traditional in a country house. It has its own sunny, private, walled garden, beyond which you can wander in the estate, or across the famous Cley marshes to the sea. Ground Floor
