A very warm welcome awaits at the home of the Campbell family, Sedgeford Hall. Set in the heart of a 1200-acre farming and shooting estate in a beautiful north Norfolk valley, Sedgeford Hall offers a beautiful, secluded location in which to holiday, celebrate or entertain.
Sedgeford Hall, built of local sand-coloured brick was built in the reign of Queen Anne, and completed in 1713, with further additions throughout the centuries; it now includes a heated indoor swimming pool (bring own towels), open fires and wood-burning stoves for the colder winter months, beautiful enclosed gardens and numerous Estate walks, with lakes, woods and parkland.
Visitors may wander around the expansive grounds at their leisure. Sedgeford is just a few miles from the coast, and close to splendid towns and villages such as Burnham Market and several stately homes - Houghton Hall, Holkham, Sandringham and Anmer Hall, home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George.
Just 5 miles to the north is the seaside town of Hunstanton with miles of sandy beaches and rock pools, majestic cliffs, a Sea Life Centre, amusemens, watersports, tennis, croquet, bowls, golf, shops, restaurants and inns. Heacham, 3 miles, has the benefit of Norfolk Lavender with garden centre, shops, café and farm shop. For children, there is the popular ‘Farmer Fred’s Play Barn’ a large indoor play centre with café and an animal petting zoo! Great Bircham is a 4-mile walk, and the Peddars Way and Icknield Way are also close by. Locally there is shooting, fishing, bird watching and golf as well as many stunning beaches along the North Norfolk coast. Shop 4 miles, pub serving food ½ mile. The cottage, approached by two steps, was converted into a theatre early in the 20th century, and is the place where local girl, 16-year-old soprano, Clara Dow first sang to an audience of local dignitaries. History does not relate her actual path to fame, but she went on to study at the Royal College of Music and eventually became the lead singer to the D’Oyly Carte Opera, a position she held for many years. The Theatre has been converted into a three bedroom cottage, with the main double bedroom leading to a twin bedroom and a fantastic en-suite bathroom with corner bath and walk-in shower. The sitting room is cosy and welcoming with a large brick fireplace and wood-burning stove, while the dining room and galley-style kitchen have views of the gardens.
