About the home
The oldest part of the house dates from the Queen Anne period, giving a real sense of history. The house has been decorated in a style sympathetic to its age and offers an ideal environment for celebrations and large family gatherings in an atmosphere of relaxed opulence.
Having been recently renovated it also boasts a host of "mod cons" with plenty to keep everyone happy. Two of the reception rooms offer an ideal space for adults to sit and relax, while the entertainment room is designed for more family orientated tv or video activities with its state of the art cinema system. This, combined with the well stocked games room, which includes pool, table tennis and football tables means that there is plenty to occupy both children and the young at heart. The large kitchen has been laid out for families to get together and cook or eat in a communal manner, while the formal dining room forms the perfect backdrop for that celebratory meal.
The area offers good walking and cycling with beaches close by (17miles). A sailing club, pay-and-play golf course, and Welney Wildfowl Trust are all within easy reach. The medieval town of Kings Lynn (4 miles) is of historical interest it contains all the main shops and supermarkets plus a regular London train service (1h 35m). Sandringham, Ely and Cambridge are all within an easy, pleasant drive.

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.
