Old School House is a large detached property, formerly (as the name suggests) the village school of Ickburgh, dating from 1850. Set in three quarters of an acre of mature gardens, on a quiet country lane opposite St Peter's Church, we are surrounded by fields with Thetford Forest just beyond.

We are located 5 minutes from the junction of the A134 and the A1065. We are within 50 minutes of Norwich, Cambridge and the beautiful North Norfolk Heritage Coast as well as countless local attractions.

Newly renovated and welcoming guests for the first time in late 2019 we provide high quality yet comfortable, relaxing accommodation for our guests. 

In consideration of  all our visitors, we welcome guests aged 13 and over.


Our Rooms...

Our rooms are individually designed, renovated throughout and have industry leading Hypnos beds.

To ensure your stay is tailored specifically to your requirements rooms come with independent heating, blackout blinds / curtains, a choice of quilt togs and a variety of pillow types. Nespresso machine, Smart TV  & USB power points in all rooms


Your Stay...

We offer a full range of breakfast options, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. Our rescue chickens provide virtually all our eggs and we source many of our other ingredients from local producers.
Our spacious south east facing breakfast room has french doors on to the garden enabling an al fresco experience on warmer mornings.


Guests are free to roam throughout our three quarters of an acre garden. We have a selection of mature, native English trees, a large well stocked Koi pond  and numerous places to sit and enjoy the peaceful English countryside, the only interruption, birdsong.
Dog Friendly

Well behaved dogs (and owners) are very welcome to stay and enjoy the gardens fully. Because dogs will be dogs we have a dedicated shower room in the garden with a stainless steel, professional dog bath and hot shower. Clean towels are provided for our four legged guests, ideal after walks in the local woods or beach.
