What a great summer we are having.   There have been such lovely families at the Manor this month.   The farm walk has been very popular and Nick enjoys  talking about the great wildlife around here and what we do on the farm to help feed the birds in the winter.

Autumn at the holiday cottages

Posted by on Nov 30, 2013 in Heckingham Hall, Heckingham Manor, Hellington Hall, Holiday cottages | 1 comment

With the summer extending into October, the excellent weather was enjoyed by all.  We would like to hear about places you have eaten at around our holiday cottages, particularly your view of their price and quality of food.  Loddon Swan has been enjoyed by many  (a little pricey but worth the extra!) .   It sources local produce as much as possible and uses Red Poll beef!    It is more than “pub food” and is situated in the centre of Loddon.     The White Horse in Chedgrave offers free taxis and bottles of wine to our holiday makers  (please ask us for details before you go). Chedgrave is...

Christmas and New Year passed in a flash!    It was great to see so many people from all over the world at our holiday cottages.   Everyone  was in great Christmas spirit. January has passed with a sustained flurry of snow and ice.   Everyone made their  accommodation,  some even arriving by taxi!    We were  amazed to see the  outside hot tub in full use at Heckingham Manor.   Unfortunately they were to shy to have their photo taken! Holiday bookings have come in at an unprecedented rate.      Please do book to avoid disappointment. We have been working on our website  and have added a...
