Perfect for a quiet romantic getaway, a great place to get away for the weekend, and is centrally based for exploring the whole of Norfolk.
This holiday property is set within the grounds of Yaxham House, the owner’s home, the Georgian Grade II listed former rectory that served the parish of Yaxham. The Old Rectory Lodge is a wing of the former rectory. The property has been furnished in a contemporary style and decorated to create a light and airy feel that complements the character of the former rectory, and is perfect for a quiet romantic getaway.

Offering a warm welcome at any time of the year, it is a perfect base for exploring all that the area has to offer.
