The Old Rectory and Coach House Description

The Old Rectory and Coach House details

The Old Rectory and the Coach House are self catering holiday cottages which stand in their own parkland next to the church surrounded by open countryside, a mile from North Tuddenham in Norfolk. The original rectory dated from the 16th century and the poet William Cooper stayed here when he first came to Norfolk. It was replaced in 1852 by Rev Barry, younger brother of the architect of the Houses of Parliament, who designed it himself. The luxury accommodation has been refurbished to provide a high quality venue for family gatherings. It is easily accessed from the A47, half a mile away.

There is a pub in the Norfolk village of North Tuddenham. Situated in the unspoilt rural centre of Norfolk it is ideally located for exploring the coast (35 minutes' drive), the Broads (30 minutes) and the historic city of Norwich (20 minutes). The Old Rectory is set in idyllic surroundings with grounds covering 12.5 acres. There are large areas of lawn interspersed with mature shrubs and trees. The grounds also include a west facing terrace, ideal for summer barbecues, a pond (this has been fenced making it childproof), and a children's football area with two goals. An ideal outdoor holiday break, The Rectory has its own wood: a pathway marked by an avenue of yew trees leads to clearings planted with bluebells, foxgloves and primroses which make ideal picnic spots. There is table tennis in the games room and an all weather tennis court in the grounds. There are riding stables nearby. Clay and game shooting can be arranged with prior notice, as can fishing. The Coach House is situated in a courtyard through original 10' high wrought iron gates next to the Old Rectory.

It can be rented with the Old Rectory should additional accommodation be required. It has been renovated to a very high standard but retains its character with exposed beams and brickwork. There are lovely views over the main lawn and open countryside.

Catering can be arranged through 'Toast' on 07900 925907 / 01508 491895
