Hidden in suburbia and tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city lies Catton Old Hall, an historic Grade II listed former mayor's home dating from 1632.
It's full of quirky creaky charm with oak beams, mullion windows and inglenook on the outskirts of Norwich.
Old Catton was home to Black Beauty author Anna Sewell and nowadays boasts the 70 acre Catton Park.
This delightful small licensed family-run guest house has a large garden with covered outdoor sitting area and offers spacious comfortable rooms, some with spa/jacuzzi baths with inviting crisp white cotton sheets, fluffy bath towels and robes.
The Old Hall offers good quality locally-sourced ingredients for its delicious English breakfasts that are served in a friendly relaxed atmosphere.
A warm welcome awaits all our guests in this 'home from home.'
There is free on-site parking with regular nearby public transport into heart of the city with good taxi availability too.
It is perfect for romantic getaways or city breaks as there are plenty of things to do in Norwich such as visiting the historic cloistered Cathedral, Norman Castle, the Forum and Norwich's 6-day open-air market
Or on the otherhand take a riverside walk, take in a show at one of the theatres or visit one of the many restaurants, pubs and bars, antique shops and bookshops.
Norwich offers something for everyone along with being one of the best cities in the UK for shopping.
In addition, the Old Hall is also ideally placed for exploring the Norfolk countryside and the Norfolk Broads for sailing, bird watching, walking, fishing and golf.
