"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.

"The Grange is absolutely fantastic..........The perfect place to celebrate!"
We hired The Grange for a long weekend to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. It is a fantastic venue with a great atmostphere. Dawn, the Housekeeper welcomed us to The Grange and was very friendly and helpful - a lovely lady! We soon settled in and couldn't decide which room was our favourite - the huge huge kitchen, the fab entertainment room, library, reception room...... spoilt for choice. The dining room was breathtaking, all laid out and ready for our special anniversary meal the next day. We then had the excitement of exploring the bedrooms. They are enormous, each with the real 'wow' factor. The Master Suite seemed to go on and on and the roll top bath was a particular highlight, although followed closely by the dressing area - Fantastic!!! The Garden is so spacious and the tennis court was a real hit. We hired Chef2Dine for, who travelled to cater for our special occasion - also amazing and I would recommend to anyone. I cannot thank Adrian enough for all the emails concerning our stay, and for Dawn who was on hand at every step. A fantastic stay, full of memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. We will return, that's for sure. If you are considering hiring The Grange, do it, you won't regret it. Thanks Adrian and Dawn x

"Beautiful, well equipted Luxry house"
Nothing about this property is mean. Enormous bedrooms and superb bathrooms, the kitchen has everything from kenwood mixers to extra toasters but even just basic little things like toliet and soap all provided without question. What I love most about this house is the owners realistic approach to house rental: Having stayed at many rental properties both here and aboard with large mixed groups, I have to say this is one of the best in terms of equipment and certainly the best in terms of luxury. The deposit has always been returned without question ( we have stayed 3 years running) and the owner has always been quick to respond to any correspondence. 10 out of 10

"Really Enjoyed our weekend!"
We had a group of 17, and hired the manor for a 30th Birthday. The whole house was great! Awesome lounge, kitchen and dining spaces. Really enjoyed drinks and dinners around the table. Bedrooms great size and very comfortable. Good location, enjoyed the tennis court and walks around the area. Great weekend away, (Only downside for us, was we had problems with the oven, but was advised it has been replaced/fixed after our stay)
