What you should know…

  • Filigree Manor is pet-friendly, with an enclosed garden that is ideal for your furry friends to explore and play safely
  • Guests can enjoy a self-catering break, or outside catering can be arranged for you on request
  • FIligree Manor enjoys a remote rural location, a short drive from the bustling seaside town of Sheringham

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

For those seeking seaside escapades, the North Norfolk Coast beckons with its charming villages and scenic beaches, from the expansive sandy shores of Holkham to the historic birthplace of Lord Nelson in Burnham Thorpe. Families and children will delight in nearby attractions such as BeWILDerwood, a whimsical treehouse adventure, the Dinosaur Adventure Park, and Pensthorpe Natural Park, boasting wildlife walks and captivating outdoor and indoor play areas.

Culture-vultures are equally spoiled for choice, with a myriad of galleries, art & craft shops, theatres, cinemas, and museums peppered along the coast. From the quaint galleries showcasing local talent to the prestigious Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and the Castle Museum and Art Gallery in Norwich, the region offers a rich tapestry of cultural experiences waiting to be explored. Whether seeking seaside serenity or cultural immersion, Filigree Manor and its surrounding area promise an enchanting retreat for all who venture to discover its hidden treasures.
