Congham Hall has a distinguished pedigree and has long since been one of Britain’s much loved country house hotels. Purchased in March 2012 by renowned hotelier Nicholas Dickinson, it was built as a family home in 1780 by a wealthy merchant and remained a private residence until the 1980s. Today, it retains a homely air and is charming and delightful in every way. The bedrooms in the main house are traditional in style, while the garden rooms are more contemporary and feature private patios. All are spacious and exquisitely designed, and each one offers luxurious details such as crisp sheets and plush bathrobes. The kitchen prides itself on sourcing 80% of their ingredients within a 20-mile radius, and much is sourced from their own herb garden, kitchen garden and extensive orchards.Congham Hall’s spa is first class and includes a pool with garden views and an outdoor hot tub. Their treatment menu is sensibly priced and offers the latest in relaxing and rejuvenating treatments. If you can drag yourselves away from this tranquil idyll there’s much to explore around this pretty corner of Norfolk, including delightful sandy beaches and market towns.
