What The Rectory Has To Offer

The Old Rectory cottages and Coach house offers guests the unique opportunity to properly escape and unwind, in deepest rural Norfolk.

Guests can venture out to explore locally and further afield, knowing that at the end of the day they can return to another restful evening at the Rectory

Set in rural Norfolk, the eighteen acre estate offers lots of opportunities for walking and biking. You can also meet our resident animals including sheep, geese, chickens and a large pig called Doris!

The original Oxborough village church is situated within the grounds. The oldest parts of The Church of St Mary Magdalene date back to the year 946. Staggering to think that’s 120 years before the Battle of Hastings and the Norman conquest!

The remains of the churches central window are still intact. Interested guests are welcome to visit the ruin, as they explore their new surroundings

Plenty To Do during Your Stay

Sandringham House

Sandringham house is 30 minutes away from Oxborough. The Royal Family’s country retreat is one of the most famous historic houses in Norfolk. Set in fine gardens, and with a fascinating museum containing a collection of vehicles ranging from the first car owned by a British Monarch, to a half scale Aston Martin used by Princes William and Harry!

The North Norfolk Coast

The North Norfolk coast is easily within an hours drive. There are lots of must see sights to explore, from Hunstanton heading East through many coastal villages, with Wells Next to Sea and onto Cromer.


You can go crabbing off the quay at Wells, lots of little shops and seafood available, and on the beach there is the iconic backdrop of colourful beach huts. Holkham Hall is close to Wells, and well worth a visit. Surrounded by 25,000 acres of rolling parkland, the estate is home to the 8th Earl of Leicester, and contains historical landmarks and fallow deer.


Blakeney point is home to common and grey seals, and is one of the largest winter colonies in England, with over 3000 pups! Grey seals have their pups between November and January. Common seals have theirs between June and August. Hop on a boat from Morston quay or Blakeney harbour to see the seals bobbing around in the water, or basking on the banks.


Sheringham to Holt has the North Norfolk Railway. With 3 beautifully restored stations, the railway is one of the most scenic heritage railways in the UK. The journey takes in some of the most unique views of the coast and countryside, and the site of the steam train making it’s way through the landscape is a sight to behold.
