Itteringham Manor is the larger part of the Georgian Manor House which also offers two person accommodation in Barn Owl Loft, this can be booked independently or together with Itteringham Manor to provide accommodation for 10 people. The manor itself dates from 1707 and has retained much of its original charm and character. This light and spacious property offers simple but comfortable accommodation and has benefited from basic modernisation in keeping with its slightly eclectic style. There is a large, secured walled garden, ideal for family fun, games and outside living.

The property is in the centre of the thriving village of Itteringham, tucked beside the river Bure, a community run village shop, café and an award winning pub can be found. The cycle route 33 passes through the village and you can easily cycle through the woods to the Blickling Estate, with its lake and gardens. As a guest you are entitled to free access to the famous Blickling Hall . Further afield, just 20 minutes drive away are the coastal cliff tops, sandy beaches and marshland bird reserves and in the other direction the historic city of Norwich.

Open Fires - we are not permitted to use either of the fires at present for safety reasons as the chimney flue linings are non-complaint.

Things to see and do nearby

East Anglia, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire

The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.

The Norfolk Broads are what family holidays are really made of! Exploring by land or water or a combination of both, there are a multitude of ways to discover and enjoy this area, including sailing, motor boating, canoeing, fishing, birdwatching, walking and cycling. There is much to inspire and delight those who visit the Broads. Not only are the famous waterways something to marvel at but the surrounding landscape is full of wonderful surprises. The beautiful countryside is home to many charming towns and small villages with traditionally thatched cottages, quaint village greens and stunning churches with histories that are as fascinating as the architecture. This area is rich in wildlife and there is no better place to find it than at Horsey.

    Interesting history

    We always like to stay in properties with interesting history but this one stole the show with many of its original structural and decorative features still in situ. From the simplicity of decorative wrought iron hooks to the palatial entrance hall with its original and slightly crooked grand staircase and landing was a delight for the eyes. A carved and painted depiction of the fox hunt ascending the side of the staircase was an added bonus as was the welcoming warmth of the spacious, interesting and well equipped kitchen, courtesy of an Aga. Yes, winter was still in evidence outside during our stay and although the storage heaters that were working appeared to be mostly effective, we had to resort to additional fan heaters in some rooms. We thought all rooms had been tastefully and sympathetically furnished. We have little doubt that some very considerable building constraints may exist with Itteringham Manor by virtue of its Grade II listing and a desire to retain as much of the historical ambience as possible. In this context we can only say if the property is left as it is, we would be more than happy to return and enjoy all its historical idiosyncrasies without complaint.
