About Itteringham ManorA Georgian manor packed full of 18th-century character and fine furnishings, close to the river Bure.
Stay in historic luxury in this grand five-bedroom manor. The Georgian mansion exudes 18th-century character with its pamment-tiled entrance, wood-panelled walls and fine antique furnishings. There’s enough room for 10 people and an additional two if booked with adjoining Barn Owl Loft, making it ideal for those special get -togethers. You’ll have a large, secured walled garden too.
Itteringham Manor sits in the heart of the thriving village of Itteringham, tucked beside the river Bure. It’s a relatively small village but you’ll find a community run shop, café and an award winning pub. Loop onto the nearby cycle route 33, which passes through the village, and ride through the woods and out towards the Blickling Estate. As a guest of the manor, you’ll have free access to its grand hall and gardens.
You’ll be just a 30-minute drive to the start of the iconic Norfolk Broads. The sandy beaches and cliff top paths of the Norfolk coast are within a 20 minute drive and the cathedral city of Norwich is only half an hour by car.
