Large country house sleeping 48 for celebrations and family gatherings near Holt and the north Norfolk coast

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

Nestled down a quiet, North Norfolk lane is Gunthorpe Hall. A hidden gem, in part designed by Sir John Soane, it has been sympathetically restored as a comfortable, private home with entertaining, quirky details, maintaining the property's original charm. Enjoy all this, with bedrooms reduced for covid-approved numbers.

Please call us to to have a chat about smaller groups & what we can offer. The Hall is arranged in 3 units for hire - The Main Hall, Wing House and Grooms Flat - Each can be most comfortable for smaller groups.

Grooms Flat, in the stables, sleeps up to 3 in one bedroom.
In all 3 a total of 52 guests (sleeping family style) can enjoy quality time together.

We welcome groups to celebrate birthdays, family re-unions, weddings, anniversaries, corporate and team building events, retreats, hen and stag weekends... Our dining room can seat up to 68 for a formal celebration 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.
