Welcome to Bessingham Manor
Set in 4.5 acres of beautiful Norfolk countryside, Bessingham Manor sleeps 16+ people, making it ideal for large family holidays.
Special celebration this year? Do it in style with Bessingham as your backdrop and entertain in your very own Manor house.
It is not a hotel or a B&B. The WHOLE house is exclusively yours for the length of your stay.
9 Luxurious Bedrooms
Our venue is fully licensed to hold civil ceremonies both indoors and outdoors to a maximum of 200. The Drawing Room can seat up to 80 guests for a formal sit down meal and if your numbers exceed this you have the option to hire a marquee or tipi, from a company of your choosing, to be erected within the grounds.
One of the best things about venue only hire is that you do not pay corkage. You can bring in your own drinks – including bottled beers, wine and champagne and we will not charge you a fee to do so.
For further information about booking the local registrars, please contact them online.
Self-Catering or Catered For…
Chandeliers, beautiful cornicing and a marble fireplace make this an impressive room for your wedding day and it is fully licensed to hold civil ceremonies of up to 120 guests and meals up to 80 guests. After the ceremony your guests can enjoy reception drinks, canapés and photographs in the entrance hall, the study and the gardens, while your caterers transform the drawing room for your wedding breakfast.
Breathing Space As Standard
Alternatively you can marry in your chosen church and return to Bessingham Manor with your guests for the wedding reception. In this case we recommend you book your church ceremony as early as possible to allow for the service, photographs at the church and travel time back to Bessingham Manor. Your Event Manager will ensure all of your suppliers are looked after before welcoming you back to the venue.
