"Outstanding House, with high attention to detail!"
The Grange Manor House is amazing we stayed here for my mums 'hen do'. Everybody (aged 23-50+) was amazed by the house. It is huge and luxurious with everything you could possibly need! We wish we could have stayed for longer having only the weekend there. The house backs out onto the river and fields, we did a long walk to the village Shouldham. Here we visited a small pub/restaurant called 'Chalk and Cheese' which along with the house was outstanding and very quirky.
If you visit this house definitely take the bubble bath to make the most of the beautiful free standing bath. Also we did a large order from Tesco's and made full use of the dinning room. I can't compliment this house enough as well as the process and information given to me to book it.
