All visitors share with the owners the beautiful swimming pool and the 2 acres of gardens during their stay.The accommodation enjoys a village location in Loddon on the Norfolk Broads and is 11 miles from the Cathedral city of Norwich, "a Fine City" where various nightlife , shopping and theatre and restaurants thrived whilst it is also equidistant to the Lowestoft marina and sea' " the farthest eastern point of England", Southwold and the beach huts, Sandringham Palace , the smoke house in Walberswick and Orford and the theme parks and amusement parks in Great Yarmouth.

The Self catering accommodation consists of the Coach House, previously the Tack Room to the Manor House and which is currently modernised for visitors and the Clock House which was formerly the Hayloft and the Georgian Clock Tower to the manor House. This has been converted to an open plan living space with french door access to a patio garden and outdoor eating space and a view of the Poolhouse at the end of the grounds. The Main House was once the seat of Sir Thomas Bignold the founder of Norwich Union and currently known as AVIVA. It had over the years been restored and refurbished by the owners and have since 2004 been a self-catering establishment for visitors from all over the country. The Poolhouse was refurbished with the Victorian Georgian Windows of the old Norwich Railway Station and is a delightful place for relaxation all year round.
I am a Chartered Building Surveyor with an architectural emphasis and over the years have restored the Georgian Manor House to its present state. We have made many friends during this time and love sharing our beautiful house with the people from all over the country.
Esther Tan purchased this house in 2000
The property is a landmark Georgian house with historical importance and architecturally sound and a fine example of 17th century elegance during its time.
The house was built in 1703 for a lawyer, Samuel Gilman and the imprint of his daughters' names, Sarah and Henrietta Gilmans are etched into the glass of the windows.
This is a substantial property with two outbuildings, the Coach House and Clock House adjacent to the Main House and although it is well placed for village amenities and easy access to Norwich and London , Suffolk and North Norfolk, it enjoys a tranquil and idyllic grounds to enjoy a family holiday or special occasion.It is in Loddon on the Norfolk Broads and visitors can hire a cruise along the Broads on a sunny day with a picnic. The Swimming Pool provide all particularly the children with heated swimming facilities everyday on your doorstep.
We found the accommodation very spacious and self contained particularly with our son suffering from MS, he was able to use the single storey part of the house. The property is full of character and at the same time great location for us to relax and do alot of walks and activities including some very good pubs in the village
Had a lovely weekend in the Coach House/Clock Tower and Attic Apartment. Great social kitchen/diner and living room. Great for large parties, there were 14 of us. Very quirky property with lots of rooms needs a little tlc in some areas but would definitely recommend and would definitely use again. The pool is an added bonus and had the weather been good we would have used the garden as well. Many thanks Ester, you were great!
A group of 13 of us plus 1 dog spent New Years at Loddon House and had the best time! The accommodation is clean, tidy and full of character. We made full use of the swimming pool which is also very clean, warm and we all thoroughly enjoyed! On New Years Eve the owner kindly offered us a catered meal which we ordered before arrival and was cooked and delivered from the Wheatacre White Lion pub. We simply had to warm the food through in the oven which was very easy as the cooking facilities are excellent at the property. The food was beautiful and a really lovely addition to the weekend. Location is also perfect within minutes walk of a number of pubs and a supermarket. I really can't praise this place enough - would be perfect for any age, occasion and is very reasonably priced!
