Stylish, quality ‘Country House’ accommodation and AA 2 Rosette Dining in Norwich

The Old Rectory is Norwich’s only AA 4* ‘GOLD’ 2 AA Rosette ‘Restaurant with Rooms'; a delightful privately-owned Grade II listed Georgian property with Victorian Coach House on the eastern fringes of the city where you can enjoy warm and genuine hospitality, a relaxing atmosphere, award-winning food and friendly, caring service – the perfect combination for a Short Break or a rejuvenating overnight stay.

Standing in an acre of mature, secluded gardens in Thorpe St Andrew, just over two miles from Norwich city centre, we offer you a choice of eight beautifully appointed, stylish, spacious non-smoking guest rooms, most with south-facing views over the Yare valley and NWT Thorpe Marshes.

In winter our warming log fire welcomes you back from your sightseeing or shopping, whilst during the summer months you can laze a while with a good book on our pool terrace or watch the busy lives of our many garden birds. Business guests will find The Old Rectory a calm and restful setting in which to relax from the strains of the working day, enjoy a delicious meal and feel revived and refreshed after a good night’s sleep.

If you are planning a longer visit, take a look at Dowager’s Cottage, our cosy 4* non-smoking self-catering property, sleeping 2 guests, which is situated within our grounds.

We, and our Birman cats Rolo & Milli, look forward to welcoming you soon
