One of the finest private houses in East Anglia
Somerleyton has twelve charming bedrooms set over two floors, ten of which are en-suite. There is also an additional apartment in the stable yard for extra guests or staff. The old servant bells give each room a name and sense of character which we have allowed to guide us during renovations which we hope adds to the hall's warmth and character.
Conserving, restoring and enriching an historically important home like Somerleyton is a life's work and not without constant challenges. I often liken it to be a submarine commander (water ingress is a very real prospect!) with hundreds of complex decisions and challenges generally ongoing, often all at once...
Home to a two mile long lake, beautiful wildlife and luxury cabin retreats, Fritton Lake is a family run private holiday club in the heart of a pioneering thousand-acre rewilding project. Join us for adventures in nature including wild swimming, trail running, yoga, great local food and a positive life-changing impact on our environment.
At the forefront of the ambitious European rewilding programme, we have given over 1,000 acres of land on the Norfolk/Suffolk boarder to nature. From 2017 our farmland has gradually been restored to self-management, leading to the protection and restoration of carefully managed sustainable wildland that is now home to free-roaming deer, cattle, sheep, ponies and rich bird and plant life. Our conservation project is committed not just to the protection and restoration of wildland but in connecting people with nature and to motivate and inspire them to become part of our vision.
