Blo Norton Estate is very special place for a holiday in Norfolk. It is set on the borders of Norfolk and Suffolk's rural countryside, surrounded by open fields and woodland. The only distraction during your holiday will be the cows wandering past the window or the resident barn owls. There is a private garden area to the front of the property with a shared communal area at the rear.
Welcome pack on arrival
The East Anglia region
Lo Norton Hall is the perfect choice for a relaxed stay in the East Anglian Countryside. Blo Norton is situated close to the picturesque Norfolk and Suffolk Borders making it ideal to explore all that both counties have to offer. Blo Norton lies on the River Little Ouse which separates Suffolk from Norfolk. The Hall reputedly provided the setting for Virginia Wolf’s short story The Journal of Miss Joan Martyn. In the story the main character, Rosamund Merridew, is a historian researching England's land-tenure system.
Many towns claim to be 'historic market towns', but there has been a market in the centre of Diss, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border for well over 500 years. The town, which lies in the beautiful Waveney Valley, was established around one of the deepest natural inland lakes in the country. The 6 acre Mere is 18 feet deep, but below this is another 51 feet of mud! The water level is maintained by a number of underground springs near to the northern edge.
Attractions in the area include the town's award winning museum located to the north of the Market Place, the wonderful Steam Museum and Gardens at Bressingham and the zoo at Banham.

"Lovely building and surroundings for a family holiday"
We all enjoyed our holiday together .The facilities were good and the environment relaxing'
We liked walking around the area which was ideal for dog walking. We liked the local food especially from the village shop in Garboldisham.

"Fun time to be had by all"
The weather was dreadful but it didnt dampen our experience of Blo Norton Hall and the estate. The Virginia Barn is very cosy considering it is so big, there were 8 of us sleeping and a further 6 joined us for Sunday lunch, at no point did you feel cramped for space. The bedrooms are not as big as we may have liked, but they have stunning views across the countryside. Waking up in the morning was a delight, to see pheasants and quails just outside your window with an abundance of wildlife on your very own doorstep. Armed with Wellies, we enjoyed walks through the woodland to the swings and rope ladders then onto a well deserved glass of wine.
