Guest information

A warm welcome awaits from Edward and you will probably see Georgy and their two young children during your stay as well. Not forgetting Slipper and Samphire the super-friendly Border Terrier mother, daughter pair (who will be your best friend if you throw their ball for them). You’ll find a welcome hamper waiting for you at your holiday accommodation. There’s delicious locally produced honey, marmalade and jam as well as bread, milk and crisps. Plus Norfolk tea, Norfolk-made cakes and biscuits and eggs laid by our own small brood of hens and ducks and collected daily by Georgy and the children.

Arrival & departure

Check-in is from 4pm and check-out is 10am on the day of departure

What's included

We provide hotel quality bed linen and super soft towels, hand towels and flannels. We ask that towels stay in the properties and you bring your own towels for the beach. Additional linen can be provided at an additional cost of £12/single bed and £15/king/super king bed.

All of our holiday properties have fully equipped kitchens perfect for travelling with families or children. You will find an electric hob and oven, fridge and freezer, cafetiere, Tassimo coffee machine, kettle, toaster, microwave, pots, pans, cooking utensils, crockery and glassware including champagne glasses. Eco friendly washing up liquid, tea towels, oven gloves, J cloths and washing up cloths will be provided along with some dishwasher and washing tablets.

Gresham Hall has an Aga which will be turned off in the hotter months unless specifically requested (it takes up to 48 hours to heat up so ensure you let us know in plenty of time.) 

On your arrival you will find a complimentary welcome pack which includes a selection of local products, Norfolk tea, Norfolk biscuits or cakes, Kettle Chips, milk and juice as well as coffee and some Tassimo coffee capsules. Gresham Hall also has a bottle of champagne.

Cakes and decorations can be included for special occasions on request for an additional cost.

Log burners make your winter stays cosy in all properties except the Apartments. An initial bag of estate dried logs will be left for you and additional logs can be purchased on request. 

For the sunnier months all properties have outdoor furniture and BBQs to enjoy the beautiful grounds of Gresham Hall Estate.

 

Dog-friendly

We love dogs and welcome them to all properties for a charge of £45 per dog to a maximum of 2 dogs. We do ask that they do not go on any of the furniture, especially sofas and beds and do not go upstairs where applicable. We have dog bowls and a cage available if required.

In Gresham Hall we ask that dogs stay off the carpeted areas. Cleaning charges will apply if we find dogs have been on the furniture.

Hall Cottage has an enclosed garden which is perfect for dogs to run around in.

All properties have a lovely selection of walks but as this is a working estate we do ask that dogs are kept on leads at all times when not in the garden. As well as all footpaths and bridlepaths we also have a few designated walks which are shown in the appropriate property. Please ensure you collect all dog poo from the gardens and public areas.

 

Hot tubs

Hot tubs are available for Gresham Hall and Ground Wing at an additional cost of £80 per hot tub. Towels can be provided for the Hot Tub at a cost of £5 per towel. No glass is allowed in the hot tubs, plastic glasses have been provided for this. The use of the hot tub is at the guests risk and we ask that children are never left alone in the hot tubs. We drain and clean the hot tubs over after each booking which means that this may not be up to temperature on arrival but we know that you will understand as this means the water is fresh for your arrival.

 

Tennis court

A tennis court is available to use for guests for Gresham Hall, Ground, Middle and Upper Wing apartments and Hall Cottage.  We operate this on a first come first served basis. Please bring your own balls and rackets.

 

Babies & children

The following can be provided on request:

– Travel cots (please note you will need to bring your own cot linen and mattress if required)

– High chairs

– Bed guards

– Changing mat

– Bumbo seat

– Loo seats

– Potties

– Sink step

– Bath mats

– Milton steriliser

– Nappy bin

Properties also have child friendly plates and cutlery as well as books and games appropriate for all ages and some properties have outdoor games too. 

 

Eco Ethos

It is important that our eco ethos is at the heart of everything we do here at Gresham Hall Estate:

  • When the hot tubs are emptied, we collect the water to use in the gardens.
  • Single use plastic is banned. Shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, hand soap and washing up liquid are all provided in refillable containers.
  • Fire wood is gathered from fallen trees in the grounds.
  • Honey, jam, marmalade, cakes and biscuits are produced locally.
  • The sugarbeet, peas and potatoes we grow on the estate go to local factories, keeping our carbon footprint ultra low.

We have invested in an ecological biomass boiler at Gresham Hall. It ensures you will be kept toasty warm, with tons of hot water all year round. At Hall Cottage we have underfloor heating in all upstairs bathrooms and the kitchen / dining room and have installed solar panels to support this.  

Parking & electric cars

There is plenty of parking space and each property has its allocated area right outside the entrance to the property. We may be able to permit electric car charging by prior arrangement. If we find that cars have been charged without prior arrangement charges will apply as this may cause excess risk.

Stay on your own private estate

Holidays at Gresham Hall Estate are what dreams are made of! The holiday accommodation is situated within 1200 acres of private grounds that you can enjoy and explore during your time here.

With so many wonderful walks leading straight from your door, there are lots of delights to discover. There’s a shared tennis court (don’t forget to bring your tennis racket), beautiful gardens and an orchard too. You can even walk to the beach if you’re feeling adventurous (those staying at Field Barn and the glampsite will be closest to the beach).

Treat yourself – you’re worth it!
