||Congham Hall, is an elegant Georgian manor that has
retained the feel of a fine country house where you've been invited to stay as a treasured
guest of the family; it is only a few miles from Sandringham, the royal family's favourite
residence outside London. Set in gracious parkland, orchards and beautiful gardens, the
hotel is renowned for its awe-inspiring Herb Garden with over 700 varieties of herbs,
that's also a genuine working kitchen garden. Horses graze on the parkland, wild flowers
flourish in the woodland and the renowned Herb Garden is a hive of activity - both for
bees and people! Herbs, salad and baby vegetables are picked daily for the kitchen.

house. Rare birds are often sighted flying over the grounds or stopping off for
refreshment at one of our ponds.
Inside, log fires and fine ceramics create a warm, homely atmosphere. Outside, Norfolk's
big skies and invigorating coastline beckon - perfect therapy for those weary of everyday
