The Victoria Launch New Bedrooms in Ancient House
One of the oldest buildings on the Holkham Estate in north Norfolk, Ancient House which is located opposite The Vic, has undergone its first major redevelopment in over one hundred years and has been converted to provide ten stylish new bedrooms including four spacious family rooms.
The sympathetic refurbishment of Ancient House, which dates from the late 1500s, has retained many of the building’s original features such as the bread oven from the time when it operated as a bakery for 100 years from 1810. Former fire surrounds, which have been covered for many years, have also been revealed in the new design.
Each of the ten bedrooms is individually designed with different schemes; there are a range of colours used but all have been chosen to reflect the history of the property and its relationship with the estate. The rooms have interesting features due to the nature of the building and are furnished with a mix of contemporary and antique pieces. They also benefit from comfortable king size beds. Four of the larger rooms have attractive sitting rooms appealing to families and guests who are looking for their own private, quiet space.
Guests will be able to relax in the peaceful and private walled rose garden at Ancient House, whilst enjoying the benefits of wining and dining in the main hotel. Both Ancient House and The Vic are ideally situated just a few minutes’ walk from the golden sands of Holkham Beach and at the gates of Holkham Hall.
