Beautiful gardens on an expansive and tranquil site. All ages enjoyed the facilities (thanks to the good weather!) and made good use of the football pitch, tennis court and swimming pool. (oh and the croquet lawn!) No need to venture outside the grounds, except for one evening outing to the Red Lion at Caston.

We have all enjoyed a very memorable stay in your beautiful home to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary with all our children, their partners and our grandchildren. Since we are scattered around the US and UK, we are rarely together in one place. Thank you for allowing us to have a gathering for extended family on Saturday and Sunday. The children loved the games room especially and of course the pool once the weather had warmed up sufficiently. Thank you.

Barbara and I have had a wonderful week with our family of 17 (3 children and spouses and 9 grandchildren).  The accommodation was everything we dreamed of and the facilities lacked for nothing.  We found it hard to leave the site but had a wonderful day at Go Ape and a morning open water swimming in the Ouse.  Otherwise the pool and the tennis court were fully occupied. A perfect Golden Wedding celebration.  We would love to return.  PS Jake and his staff did us proud with a wonderful meal and service for a special evening.  The LeFrenais.

An absolutely wonderful holiday with all our family in a lovely home and location.  Our grandchildren did not want to go home, nor did the adults. The family ranges from 18 months to sixty something years and there was plenty for us all to enjoy.  The Wallaces

Thank you so very much for letting us stay in your beautiful home.  You had thought of everything and we wanted for nothing.  We especially enjoyed watching the rabbits and pheasants on the lawn each evening.  There was plenty to keep everyone entertained, from the oldest and youngest.  The only downside is, not of us wants to go back home…The Steels

July 2014

 A year ago today we left Vicarage House not knowing that we would be back again for more adventures.  We have had a fantastic second trip - this time we went to the Zoo, Bewilderwood and Cromer for lovely day trips.  We were so busy playing games, making treasure hunts and cooking that we didn’t have time to watch any DVDs. Last year I was a rose and this year I am married and expecting a baby!  So who knows what next year will bring.  Thank you for having us to this magical place - we loved it! The Ederys

15 of us, aged 1 ½ to 75 years and one well-behaved dog.  One family!  Your lovely spacious house and five days of sun made it a lovely and a perfect holiday for us all.  We hope to come again.  The Schanschieff family.

We have had a fantastic weekend here at your lovely house for my 40th Birthday with lots of lovely friends.  We had loads of laughs, fun …. and of course …. wine!!

We have had a wonderful week spent in this beautiful house.  The weather has been perfect.  It was my choice to celebrate my 70th birthday - no regrets!  The house and grounds have more than satisfied our requirements.  Friends were amazed at our choice of venue.  More importantly our grandchildren will never forget their experience.

We had a brilliant time at Vicarage House.  The space was sublime and the games room and football and tennis.  Outside was the best because we could hide from our parents.  And the DVDs were good. Finlay 9.

We will be back if you let us!!! Thank you!

We were all so looking forward to our stay at vicarage House and it certainly lived up to our expectations.  Five families accommodated in the main house and the pool house.  We celebrated three birthdays during the week, the grounds were perfect for a mini-Olympics and Easter Egg hunt for the children.  Cloudy or sunny the children were in the pool, plenty of outside and inside room for all.  Thank you Katie and Richard for sharing your beautiful house, it certainly won’t be the last time we visit.  The Wynn

We came to Vicarage House to celebrate our Dad’s 60th birthday and couldn’t have imagined a better place to stay.  The house and grounds are beautiful.  We a very homely feel throughout.  With so much to do, for children and adults, we didn’t feel at all guilty staying in for more days than planned!  The housekeeper was most welcoming and it really is sad to have to leave.  Thank you for helping to make a special occasion and rare family holiday, all together, so perfect!  With thanks The Austins

July 2013

We have had a wonderful stay here in this amazing house and grounds.  Truly beautiful.  The weather has been glorious, we have had lovely barbeques, fun swimming and playing games in the pool.  We have played tennis, table tennis, croquet and petanq.  There is so much to do here we didn’t need to leave the house!  Thank you so much for a truly memorable experience.  The Edery family.
