Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Gunthorpe Hall, Melton Constable, North Norfolk, sleeps 11-48 in 16 bedrooms.

Nestled down a quiet lane in the beautiful North Norfolk countryside is Gunthorpe Hall. A Victorian/Georgian Hall, in part designed by Sir John Soane, sympathetically restored as a private home providing comfort and quirky surroundings whilst retaining the original charm of the property.
Please do call us to arrange a pop in for a cup of tea to see what we have to offer, the Hall is difficult to capture in pictures!

Gunthorpe Hall comprises 12 bedrooms (sleeping up to 37), with an additional 4 bedrooms offered in Wing House (sleeping up to 11) if also hired, accommodating up to a total of 48 guests family style where both friends and family can enjoy quality time together under one roof. We encourage you to bring dressing gowns and slippers, to embrace the feel of using the Hall as your 'home from home'.

We welcome groups to celebrate birthdays, family re-unions, corporate and team building events, spiritualist retreats, weddings or friends just looking to spend quality time together. Our large dining room can seat up to 68 for a formal celebratory dinner, or more buffet style.

Our grade II listed home has plenty of space for guests to spread out in. Relax by the open fire in the welcoming Sitting Room, tinkle on the ivories on our grand piano, unwind with a glass of wine on the parterre, dance the night away in the Oak Hall, get active with a game of croquet or badminton on the games lawn or let the big kids loose in the Billiards Room. Gunthorpe Hall is the perfect country getaway at any time of year.

The grounds offer a unique opportunity for you to host on-site games such as clay pigeon shooting, archery and treasure hunts. The beautiful gardens are a fantastic setting for drinks, picnics or a BBQ during your stay. There is also a quiet, tranquil fishing lake that you are welcome to fish during your stay – please bring your fishing gear with you.

The Victorian walled vegetable garden, along with our own flock of sheep, chickens and ducks, inspire the delicious meals prepared by the Gunthorpe Team. We can fully cater for your stay, provide a special dinner for you and your guests to relax and be waited on, or you can entirely self-cater.
