Staying at Bressingham Hall with your loved one
We have teamed up with our favourite Garden Tour Operator and member of the Bloom family to offer Garden themed breaks based at Bressingham Hall.
Usually rented as a whole holiday let, for the first time since the renovation, Bressingham Hall is being made available on a half board basis for couples to join us, on selected dates, to enjoy lodging at our family Manor House and experience the seasonal highlights of the Bressingham Gardens and their immediate surroundings of natural beauty.
Make it as relaxing or active as you wish!
Our offer includes some two nights with Breakfast and Dinner and a guided visit of the Gardens with the Owner or head gardener and some longer stays in the Summer.
You are welcome to spend the day relaxing in the gardens with a book, explore the many beautiful gardens, beaches and woods on your own, or take up one or more activities offered.
We are lucky enough to live in an area filled with natural beauty and exciting gardens.
