Welcome to Bessingham Manor

Bessingham Manor is a beautiful 9-bedroom Victorian Manor in North Norfolk that is available for holidays and celebrations.

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…

his vast south-facing room has two sets of bay windows (one with French doors opening towards the lower lawn) and windows on two more aspects making it an exceptionally light and bright room all day long.

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

If you have more than 120 guests, or simply prefer the great outdoors, you can erect a marquee or tipi for your big day. The gardens are fully licensed to hold civil ceremonies of up to 200 people and the study can be used for the signing of the register. Reception drinks can then be enjoyed either in the manor or the gardens, weather dependent.

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.

C Robinson, July 2015

"We are just home from the most glorious family weekend at your lovely residence. It could have been tailored to our needs, with everything just as we wanted it. The bedrooms were very good and suited everyone, from Grandpa aged 80 to Evelyn almost two. We were able to have our evening meal in the garden each night and the cooking facilities were excellent. Thank you for making our family reunion beyond all our dreams."

The Youngs, Easter 2015

"WOW!!!! What a stunning property Bessingham Manor is and far exceeded our expectations. Thank you both for making it so welcoming when we arrived. The goody basket, the shopping put away, the warm Aga etc., was much appreciated and we immediately felt at home. Everyone had a fantastic weekend. Also thank you for helping my eager nephew and girlfriend with suggestions for the day when they turned up 5 hours early! We left at 10am and hoping all was to your satisfaction with the house/bins etc. Much was consumed over the weekend. Thank you again and congratulations to you both for creating a beautiful home."
