About the home
The Gaolhouse is part of a converted former gaol in the market town of Thetford in Norfolk. The cottage has one double bedroom, one twin with an ensuite and a family bathroom. Also in the cottage are a fitted kitchen, a dining room, a sitting room and a study with single bed and spiral stairs which lead to the former dungeon.
