Summer Short Breaks

The longer days are here, the weather is warming up and the birds are busy in the garden. Norfolk’s many nature reserves (NWT Thorpe Marshes is right across the road) have an influx of summer migrants, heritage properties are open again and there are many attractions to see in Norwich including the Norman Castle and Cathedral, the newly re-branded Museum of Norwich Life (formerly the Bridewell Museum) with its fascinating history of the city of Norwich, as well as the  Forum and Millennium Library. If you are looking for some retail therapy, Norwich features among the Top 10 UK Retail Destinations with all the major retailers, two shopping malls, Jarrold’s Department Store (twice winner of the UK Independent Department Store of the Year) plus an eclectic mix of independents in the Norwich Lanes. Or perhaps you just fancy a quiet break, relaxing with a good book or lazing on the pool terrace.

Whatever you like to do, The Old Rectory is the perfect place for a short break: accommodation in one of our individually styled guest rooms, a delicious, seasonal 2 AA Rosette dinner each evening in our elegant, candlelit Dining Room and of course a freshly cooked English Breakfast are all included in the price. Available Monday – Saturday inclusive from £175 per room per night for two adults sharing; minimum two night stay with dinner taken on at least two evenings.

When booking a Short Break online, please let us know your preferred time for dinner; we will book your table at the nearest available time and email you to confirm.

To book a Short Break which includes a Sunday night, please book Bed & Breakfast and let us know which evenings you would like dinner and your preferred time – we will amend your booking to the appropriate Short Break tariff and confirm by email.
