Hales Hall for hire

EDP Norfolk - - Good For Business -

Hales Hall, one of the most im­por­tant and his­toric coun­try houses in Nor­folk, has joined the hol­i­day lets mar­ket.

Built in 1478 by Sir James Ho­bart, At­tor­ney Gen­eral to Henry VII, the Grade I listed Tu­dor hall boasts im­pres­sive fea­tures like The Great Barn, the largest brick-built Tu­dor barn in the UK. Other unique prop­er­ties are avail­able in the es­tate’s nine-acre moated grounds.

Lucy Down­ing, brand man­ager of hol­i­day lettings agent Nor­folk Coun­try Cot­tages, said: “There has been a house on the site for over 1,000 years. At one time, it was one of the great­est houses in Nor­folk and where, be­fore Blick­ling Hall was built, it was the Ho­bart prin­ci­pal seat.” NOR­FOLK

Fol­low­ing ex­ten­sive ren­o­va­tion by pre­vi­ous own­ers for which it was awarded first prize by the Cam­paign for the Pro­tec­tion of Ru­ral Eng­land in 2014, the hall, The Gatehouse and The Cot­tage have now been styled to at­tract the discerning hol­i­day maker.

The grounds and gar­dens are an out­stand­ing fea­ture of The Hall with man­i­cured lawns, ex­ten­sive top­i­ary, cot­tage gar­den plant­ing and are bor­dered on one side by a small moat. EDP
