LUXURY COUNTRY MANSION FOR 28 PEOPLE - INDOOR SWIMMING POOL & TENNIS COURT

Photos and Description of this 13 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Reepham - Hackford Hall

13 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 32 acres - Classic English Stately Home

Hackford Hall is a grade 2 listed Georgian Mansion Hall with earlier 16th Century origins. It is situated in 32 acres of its own landscaped grounds and approached via it's own long sweeping driveway. Hackford Hall is the primary property in the area, with a wealth of history as the ancient seat of the Lord of the Manor of Hackford, which encompasses half of the beautiful nearby market town of Reepham. Reepham has been the local market town since 1277 and in that time Hackford Hall has seen many famous inhabitants call it home.

The property benefits from numerous leisure facilities including; an indoor heated swimming pool & gym complex (gym to be put in in 2014) with separate men and women changing rooms and facilities, a fully equipped games room (pool table, table tennis), an excellent all-weather full size tennis court & croquet lawn.

Naturally, Hackford Hall boasts wonderful period features throughout the house. There is a fabulous entrance hall, with open fireplace, oak flooring. This room is ideal as an entertainment / party room or simply somewhere to breakaway from others in the house. The manor house contains several large reception rooms and a wonderful modern huge fully equipped bespoke fitted kitchen. There is an elegant large dining room with seating for everyone around one table, as well as a massive reception/TV room, containing 50' flatscreen 'smart' TV with internet access. This room as soft seating for all to relax and congregate in. The house also benefits from a separate children's play room and office room, equipped with PC with broadband access (and parental controls). This is to be fittted in Spring 2014. On top of this is a number of separate smaller rooms utilised as boot rooms, cloak rooms, utility rooms etc.

There is a most relaxing conservatory which links the main house to the 4 large garages. Of course, there is ample parking if you don't want to use the garages during your stay.

Hackford Hall is designed with your large family holiday or gathering for that special occasion in mind. It is ideal for that large gathering, be it a formal special occasion, such as a birthday, anniversary, or simply somewhere for you and your family and friends to all be under one fabulous roof to enjoy life together.

The property is located just outside the picturesque market town of Reepham, in one of the most scenic parts of the UK. It is only 14 miles from Norwich, one of the UK's best tourist and shopping cities. A short scenic drive will take you to the amazing beaches of the north Norfolk. The whole area is geared up to the upmarket tourist trade but has not forgotten the smaller members of your party. There are literally lots of attractions within a short drive such as: several major theme parks, golf courses, world-class bird and seal watching, historical sites, steam railways, as well as the royal residence of Sandringham. Oh, and not to forget the unique and fascinating Norfolk Broads......... and did we mention the award winning beaches?

I immediately fell in love with Hackford Hall, the moment I set eyes on it. I instinctively knew it would make a great addition to my small but growing portfolio of large holiday homes in East Anglia. Hackford Hall has everything a discerning group could wish for in their choice of property for their stay/holiday.

Hackford Hall is that quintessential English stately home; long sweeping drive leading up to a most impressive grand house of Georgian proportions, with much earlier heart. The house is just oozing importance and splendour. The space available, makes Hackford Hall an ideal house for a large gathering; with lots of things to do and plenty of rooms to spread out in.

We celebrated a family 40th birthday at Hackford Hall with a party of 18 including a few children between us. Everyone had an absolutely amazing time! The property is maintained to a very high standard, the rooms are all very large and the swimming pool is great to keep adults and kids entertained regardless of the weather. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and has a standard oven in addition to the AGA for those less familiar with them. The dining room is perfect for a dinner with that many people around the table. The table is amazing!
The house was very warm and comfortable.


Hackford hall is so big that we didn't really have the impression of being crowded in the house at any point in time.

Clair the owner was also very friendly and flexible with all the arrangements.

I highly recommend this place to anyone who is organizing a gathering with a large number of people, with or without children. I'm sure with the addition of the planned additional en-suites it will become even better.
The table tennis & pool tables were past there best but am sure these will be updated to remain in keeping with the high standards of the rest of the house.

We have stayed in a few of these larger houses and this is up there with the best.

I just can't wait until I have another excuse to go back to myself!

Reepham is one of Norfolk's most attractive market towns and is located on the fabulous Norfolk Broads waterway. Hackford Hall is situated less than a mile outside of Reepham, within 32 acres (13 hectres) of landscaped grounds. Reepham boasts several fine restaurants and classic English country pubs as well as a range of bespoke shops & cafes; a lovely Norfolk gem.

Hackford Hall is only a short drive from Norwich, one of the UK's finest cities, both for sightseeing and shopping. There is also a short drive to the North Norfolk coast - one of the UK's most desirable stretches of coastline. The Royal residence of Sandringham is also within easy reach
