Overview

Photos and Description of this 13 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Norfolk Broads - 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?

Why Clair chose Norfolk Broads

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.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

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.

Magnificent yet comfortably cosy.

  • 5 of 5

Hackford Hall is an attractive, well-kept Georgian country house that is as beautiful inside as it is outside. This is an easy house to fall in love with and a very difficult house to leave. It is clean and tidy, the kitchen is generously stocked with equipment, crockery and cutlery, more than enough for our group of 25. The games room, the gym and the pool were full sized additions rather than fun-sized add ons. The bedrooms were comfortable sizes and the linen was good quality.

Clair was very helpful from the very beginning of the booking process and allowed us to do a pre-visit so that we could plan our stay regarding allocation of bedrooms, entertainment and catering facilities. Clair was even amenable to us running an activity within the grounds.

Apart from enjoying all that was available regarding activities, we hired an archery company, Grey Goose Archery, to come over and give us two hours of tuition and competition. If there ever was an exciting and accessible alternative to clay pigeon shooting, archery is it and this relatively local company were excellent.

Myself and my friends would recommend this house without reservation. It is a grand house set in lovely grounds that is comfortable to the point of cosyness in spite of its size. The smile that slides over your face when you first pull up to the house, remains until the moment you have to tear yourself away when checking out.

Fantastic House in lovely grounds

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 fantastic nights at Hackford Hall with friends for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Its a fantastic house with lots of space. Very well equipped kitchen. Everyone said how comfortable the beds were. The house, considering how large it is, was always lovely and warm, no nasty draughts. Lovely large rooms, some of the bedrooms were amazing. Our only problem was that we wished we could have stayed longer. It was a great relaxing break. Would highly recommend this house.

Fantastic House, Fantastic Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Hackford Hall for a weekend to celebrate my 30th. We had a group of 22 adults and the house was perfect for this type of gathering. We really wanted a house that could accommodate so many of us without being on top of one another, queues for bathrooms or not enough to do and this house ticked all the boxes. With the informal kitchen, the huge living room the quickly named "boys and toys" room and the pool meant everyone had space to enjoy, relax and socialise. We stayed for three nights and even spent Sunday walking into town for Sunday lunch (a nice 2 mile walk to a great local pub). At the recommendation of Claire the Owner we used an outside caterers for Saturday which meant we could all get glammed up and sip champagne in the beautiful surroundings. I love this house, it was a mix between Pride and Prejudice and Downton Abbey! We will definitely look to book again. A great, affordable way to see in a group celebration! Thank you Hackford Hall for the memories!

Wonderful country house for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely amazing house! My friends and I hired the house for the weekend and really didn't want to leave. The kitchen is very well equipped, everything you could possibly need. The dining room is stunning and begs for a massive dinner party. The pool was well heated - we were there in the winter. The grounds are beautiful, really wonderful views. All bedrooms are comfortable and there are plenty of bathrooms. The owner was more than helpful and answered all questions promptly. If you are looking for a comfortable luxurious house for a large group, I can't recommend it enough.

Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

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
