Bessingham Manor, Holt, Norfolk

Sleeps 4 - 28 10 Bedrooms 34 Dining

Beautifully restored Victorian manor house near Cromer sleeping 28 with a hot tub for special celebrations and coastal holidays

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Bessingham Manor, Holt, Norfolk, sleeps 4 - 28 in 10 bedrooms.

Bessingham Manor is ideal for large groups of family and friends to get together to enjoy holidays or for special celebrations and house parties.

The house has 10 beautiful bedrooms with great views, 6 en-suites and 2 family bathrooms. It also incorporates a self contained mews apartment which sleeps an extra 6 and is attached to the main house to provide additional space or the possibility to live separately whilst holidaying with friends. The mews has its own kitchen, shower room and private dog proof garden, wood burner and hot tub and can be hired as an extra.

Rescued from the brink of destruction, this beautiful property has been completely and sympathetically restored. Inside the style is elegant but relaxed; think four poster beds, slipper baths, elegant reception rooms and a wonderful Victorian kitchen.

We have two hot tubs available (extra charge), and extensive grounds are perfect for outside dining and games.

You enter another age as soon as you step into the grand entrance hall, complete with black and white marble flooring, and a large sweeping staircase. Enter the magnificent 14m long reception room with its beautiful bay windows, marble fireplace, chandeliers and French doors that lead out on to the garden – and you have found the perfect room for entertaining. For a more intimate space, cosy up in the study with its wood-burner and beautiful furniture.

The wonderful handmade Victorian kitchen with big pine table, and scullery with huge original butler sink, are ideal for catering and cooking for numbers. The grand dining room has original flagstone flooring and a large wood burner.

Although the house is secluded in its own private grounds on the edge of a tiny village, it's not far from the North Norfolk coast with many activities such as walking, swimming, sailing, horse riding. Alternatively relax on a sandy beach or go fossil hunting by the sea cliffs. There are many great Gastro pubs in the picturesque brick and flint villages. The nearby town of Holt has boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops, and Cromer pier is a short drive away. There are many impressive National Trust properties to visit.
