    Beauty, peace and luxury

    The east-wing apartment was perfect for our honeymoon - private, very clean, well-appointed and immaculately decorated. The kitchen is very well-equipped, the double bed super-comfy and the bathroom absolute luxury (with a clawfoot bathtub and unlimited, speedy-running hot water). The hosts are quietly welcoming and helpful, and the rest of the Hall fascinating. The extensive gardens are beautifully laid out, with secret nooks and orchards and wonderful flower-beds. Swafield/North Walsham itself is perfectly situated for the North Norfolk coast which has many beautiful sites and walks. The internet came and went a bit, but was never off for more a minute as they have at least 4 different hubs! Pretty much perfect, and highly recommended.

    Wonderful Swalfield Hall!

    My husband and I couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at Tim & Boris' wonderful hall.We were greeted by our hosts and given a tour of our apartment. It was better than expected. Very quiet and well appointed. And the bathroom is huge with a large claw foot tub. We were given a tour of the garden. The garden was absolutely breathtaking. A labor of love. Tim and Boris invited us to share dinner with them. Couldn't have asked for more.And their dog, Antoine, is the sweetest furry friend. I would recommend this property for a peaceful holiday in Norfolk. Truly a great place.

    Lovely break, can't wait to go back when it's finished.

    Even though there is a lot of building work currently going on it didn't really impose on the overall affect and quality of our stay. Boris and Tim were very accommodating and after the first night had the heating sorted. We stayed in the East wing apartment which had been done to a high standard and the roll top bath was very luxurious.

    Excellent Accomodation in a lovely area !

    We stayed in the East Wing which was ideal for a couple. The accommodation was very well presented and very well equipped. We like to self cater and the full oven, microwave and hob were a real bonus. The wi fi has been upgraded and I recorded 20mb download speeds which is more than adequate. My mobile telephone reception was poor but I easily made calls over the internet. The property is easily accessed and close to several National Trust Properties and the coast. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay and I would recommend this property and intend to visit again next summer.

    Swafield is a lovely quiet hideaway that we shall return to.

    Swafield Hall is an absolute gem. The setting and the apartment ensure you feel you've experienced something special. Boris & Tim are excellent hosts, always on hand but never obtrusive. We really look forward to a further trip in the future when I'm sure the Hall will have been even further transformed.
