The Hacienda

Luxury living down on the ranch

The Hacienda

Luxury living down on the ranch

A burst of Spanish colour

In Norfolk’s leafy lanes

line

Description almost defies The Hacienda. It’s a Norfolk Barn conversion which has thrown away the rule book. Beneath the rustic beams, the glorious living spaces surround a large and truly delightful Spanish courtyard, complete with enormous hot tub.

Set in four acres of lush Norfolk countryside, The Hacienda is not quite ‘hotel’ and nor is it ‘home from home.’  In fact, it’s a decadent and joyous, self-described ‘home-tel’ where you can escape from the world and let your hair down.

With interiors by Russell Hall and Shaun Clarkson – designers to the stars – quirky details abound. These inspired touches, such as  the magnificent carved Black Forest eagle in the dining room, bring alive the vibrant personality of this property, against a backdrop of honeyed interior stone walls and high vaulted ceilings.

Close to the beaches, stately homes and open countryside of North Norfolk, and with space for 18 to sleep in 8 individually styled rooms, this is the ideal venue for fun family gatherings, weddings with a difference and is part of our collection of hen party houses and our party houses to rent.

Prices from £2,600

Based on a 2 night weekend stay.

Accommodates 18+

In 8 luxurious bedrooms.  Room for a few more on additional guest beds.

In wonderful Norfolk

Under 2.5 hours from London.

Indoor and outdoor socialising

Away from the world

Described by the Sunday Times as “one of the top ten places to stay in the world,” The Hacienda is hard to beat as a destination for your friends and family to converge and enjoy a ranch lifestyle. With all the rooms on one level, enclosing the Spanish garden – complete with patios, terraces, lawns and a huge 10-person hot tub – inside and outside blend seamlessly.

The dining room can seat 18-20 guests and has a laid-back lounge area at one end, before a cosy open fire. Ideal for pre-dinner aperitifs, or a warming night-cap. Through in the dream-like living room, pull a book from the shelf and while away an hour or three. Or just lie back and gaze through the floor-to-ceiling roll-back windows

Outside, the kids can play safely in the enclosed courtyard, while you soak up the sunshine. Fire up the barbecue in the late afternoon and enjoy an al fresco meal beneath the covered terrace. As dusk falls, sink into the 10-person hot tub, Champagne in hand.

Playfully stylish bedrooms

From the ‘Cabana’ to the ‘Corral’

The luxury ranch theme continues into the bedrooms. Here, one-off statement pieces, such as the silver birch four-poster bed in the Frontier room, vie for attention with whimsical details such as the dancing prince bedside lamps.

Kids will love the Bunk House, with 4 beds in the sumptuous style of a sleeper train, and why on earth is there a baronial style Scottish Cabin room, complete with clashing tartans and a wall-mounted stag’s head – who cares, there is, and it’s wonderful.

With bathrooms, showers and wet rooms aplenty, soft towels and gorgeous REN toiletries to pamper yourself, bedtime is both an adventure and an indulgence.

Beautiful, natural and peaceful

Explore Norfolk

line

From protected nature reserves to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Norfolk is a haven for nature lovers and peace-seekers. Visit the North Norfolk coast, a designated AONB, where wildlife is abundant in the salt marshes, forests and sand dunes. Take a boat trip out to the seal colony at Blakeney point, visit the magnificent Holkham Hall deer park and walk along some of Britain’s best beaches. Bring your binoculars because you are in the birdwatching capital of the UK.

Further afield, the mystical landscape of the Norfolk Broads is a must-visit and, for urban adventurers, Norwich is possibly the most underrated city in England. One of the UK’s most ancient cities, it has a thriving cultural scene and a plethora of great bars and restaurants.

If you are seeking a secluded getaway, bursting with personality and close to nature, The Hacienda ticks all the boxes.
