A lovely family property, a real home from home. We had a wonderful time at St Lawrence House with our family from aged 2 to 70. We especially loved the grand dinning Hall and spent many an evening with a meal and a glass of wine by the roaring fire. The mezzanine floor was great to curl up with a book and look out across the gardens. A huge, comfortable space for my husband and I and our two year old son plus 2 sets of grandparents who joined us. Would love to return one day.

Mrs G,

The house and garden were really great, very well equipped,clean, spacious and comfortable. The whole family really enjoyed our stay especially the 4 children. Thank you.

Ms O,

Fabulous property, great for a family trip away with so much to offer. Open plan living/kitchen accommodation was great and though we barely used the main living room, study or dining hall, it was great to have that additional extra space. Safe secure garden for the kids and plenty of off road parking. Village quiet and slightly off beaten track but lovely place to base our stay in north Norfolk.

Miss J,

Beautiful house, good location.

Mrs T,
