The Old Rectory House is situated in a tiny village which is located in the middle of a triangle whose corners are Swaffham, Downham Market and Thetford.

It is one of the most fascinating villages in Norfolk, and a great base for exploring the lesser known western part of the county. There are two linked-sites in the village that draw visitors from far and wide. The first is Oxburgh Hall, home since it was built in 1482 to the Bedingfield family, still in residence half a millennium later. This elaborate Tudor manor house encapsulates so much of that era in its building and setting: with a square moat and a huge and ostentatious gatehouse (seven storeys high) it shouts of the wealth and power of those who built it. Although the interior is much changed, and largely Victorian, it contains needlework by two of the great women of the age, Bess of Hardwick and Mary Queen of Scots. It is also reputed to contain the ghost of a Spanish woman who disappeared in mysterious circumstances in the 16th century.

The second great site is St John’s Church, famous for the collapse of its spire in 1948. What avoided the destruction or was rescued after it forms a very different church setting, a cluster of buildings with very unusually for a village church what looks like a cloister among them in the north wall. There is much evidence in the church of the fact the Bedingfields stuck to the old faith, the intricate decoration showing they were able to protect the place through the worst Reformation and Puritan excesses. There is a third place in the village, again linked to the Bedingfields, which should be mentioned here. This is The Bedingfield Arms, also known as the Bedingfield Coach-house for its old use, the village pub where those wanting to spend time in the area will find accommodation.

In the vicinity of the village there is plenty to occupy those on a longer stay: Cockley Cley has a wonderful Saxon Church; just a mile or so east there is the reconstructed Iceni village; and both Downham Market and Swaffham (enjoying some TV fame as a setting in the series Kingdom) are well worth visiting.
