Sorry, we are not suitable for Wheelchair users or guests with a mobility issue, the house is on 4 levels.
Sorry, we don't take corporate, company or team building groups.
Please note: This is not a "Party House", We extend a warm welcome to family and friend groups looking to enjoy a celebration weekend or sophisticated hen party but do not accept groups looking for wild, loud all night parties. This is our family home so we ask that guests are respectful and take care of the house. We do have a 10 pm outdoor curfew and ask for sensible noise levels for the hot tub & outdoor areas at all times, with no music outside policy, however, you can dance until the wee hours without disturbing anyone inside the house. There is CCTV at the property & ID is required to book this property.
I organised my best friends hen and stayed at Norfolk House with 16 other hens last weekend. It was great from start to finish. Charlotte was so helpful and lovely to meet on arrival to give us the grand tour of the house!
We catered for ourselves throughout the weekend enjoying afternoon tea in the dining room and pre-prepared meals on Saturday night. The kitchen was great for preparing our food and lots of space.
We also enjoyed a murder mystery evening hosted by Manchester Murder Mystery which was amazing. All the hens got into character and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
We were also able to decorate the house, full of balloons, signs and pictures etc to make it even more special for the bride.
So glad I chose to go with Norfolk House, I couldn’t fault anything from the weekend.

We rented this house for a hen party of 16 people. What an amazing house! Beautifully presented, well maintained and great spaces throughout for entertaining, eating and relaxing. I can’t recommend it enough, especially for those insta snaps!
The bride to be had an amazing time and the host Charlotte was really helpful throughout. Always available, plenty of advice and support while we were planning and preparing and then left us to enjoy the house by ourselves.
If you’re looking for an impressive and memorable experience then this is a great place to go!
Lewis March 19 TA
We rented this house for my sister's hen party. We had twenty women varying in age. We have had so much fun, whilst being able to relax in the most beautiful surroundings. The Bride to be has absolutely loved it, the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves some even saying it’s the best hen party they have ever been to.
Charlotte’s help throughout ensures you have the best from your stay particularly your recommendations for Gemma and Matt the caterers were superb and they did not disappoint.
The house itself is stunning, with plenty of rooms so you never feel on top of each other. Our only comment (coming from 20 women who were nitpicking) is that we wanted a slightly bigger hot tub which I have already mentioned to the owner. But this is in no way affected our stay and I would absolutely recommend this house to anybody.

We rented this beautiful home for my Birthday in September for me and my family. Charlotte, the owner, was so helpful and welcoming to any questions/needs I had. The location of the house was central with access roads to other locations in around Huddersfield, and only a short walk towards the town. Altogether, thanks to Charlotte I had an amazing birthday and I can't wait till I can go again, I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone!
We booked Norfolk House to stay in for a family Wedding. So that we could all stay together as a large family in one place and the house was conveniently located near to the wedding venue. Where do I start!! The house was just beautiful and is located in a nice conservation area near to the park. The interior decorating is stylish to say the least but it is very comfortable and homely at the same time. I love this house and didn't want to leave. We even braved the hot tub! We loved preparing meals in the gorgeous kitchen then all being able to eat together in the pink dining room was very convenient and glamorous. We felt like Lords and Ladies for the weekend. Dealing with the owner Charlotte was easy and everything that we requested was in place upon our arrival including 2 cots for our little ones. (We were flying over from Belfast so we could bring much with us) I cannot recommend this place enough and we are considering hiring it again for a family get together next Christmas! Thanks for a fabulous time.
Alisa Jan 19 TA
Well, I don’t know where to start! We hired Norfolk House for my aunties hen party weekend. The house is absolutely stunning and finished to the highest of standard! We had absolutely everything we could need for a comfortable and luxury stay.
We were given a list of recommendations for our weekend from Charlotte and chose to make our own afternoon tea in the dining room area, as well as a beautiful Mexican meal out, cocktail making and escape rooms.
The weekend was so relaxed and filled with laughter from start to finish. We would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a unique hen party weekend away!
Thank you :)

New Year at Norfolk House
We had a great stay at Norfolk House for New Year. The house as shown in photos is stunning and provides a perfect base to explore the local area. Every room is decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard. The house has everything you need and more to enjoy a weekend break away. The hot tub makes your stay even more luxurious. The house is big enough some guests can relax and unwind, while others celebrate in the large front room or the hot tub. The host (Charlotte) is very responsive and helpful. The location is ideal, near lots of local food and drink spots. We enjoyed visiting the local brewery magic rock during our stay.
Many thanks for having us

We stayed at the magnificent Norfolk House for my silver wedding celebration. It was the most perfect venue to get all the family together, eat, drink and be merry. We are hoping to return during the Easter holidays for a birthday treat and explore Yorkshire. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.
We were blown away by this house, the pictures don't do it justice. It was spacious and luxurious throughout, with Charlotte taking in to consideration every little detail. The attic room has a kitchenette so you don't have to go down three flights of stairs each time you want to make a drink, and there were mirrors for all 20 guests to do their make-up. Thanks again Charlotte x
Hi just like to say what a brilliant weekend we all had the mansion is gorgeous very spacious very clean good access well maintained Charlotte the host was lovely anything you need was no trouble my daughter had a fantastic time we are all planning to go back next year thanks Charlotte

50th Birthday fun! We had my husbands 50th birthday here with all the family and the children, it was even better than the photos. The hot tub was a wonderful way to unwind after a long walk at Marsden! We have a trip to the vineyard and Holmfirth. Thanks, Charlotte for all the help in making this a very special family weekend.
Charlotte is a lovely and helpful host, this house is perfect for a hen do - highly recommended!

Norfolk House was the perfect place for my sister's birthday weekend - we were looking for somewhere to host 20 close friends and family, with plenty of space and character. This amazing house was so much more than we expected!! We had dinner and games Friday evening, held a dance class in the enormous white lounge on Saturday morning, relaxed in the gorgeous hot tub and then partied in the evening. Everyone was blown away by the decor and attention to detail, the owners have thought of absolutely everything you could need. Thank you for trusting us with your beautiful home Charlotte & Darren, we all want to come back! x
We had a wonderful weekend in Norfolk House, an absolutely stunning mansion with fabulously decorated rooms full of everything you need for a hen do. The hot tub and butlers in the buff were a great hit with all the hens and Charlotte offers many more activities to entertain your guests.
Charlotte is a helpful and lovely hostess, nothing was too much trouble and she did the best she could to ensure we had the best weekend.
Amazing house, decorated so beautifully!! Me and all the hens especially the bride have had the best weekend!! Charlotte thanks for all your help from the very start. Cocktail Masterclass was such great fun and the lads did an amazing job with us all. The hot tub was fab even though the weather wasn't on our side!! Will definitely be recommending to everyone. Thanks again!

Can't recommend this beautiful house enough for a hen party - we booked Norfolk House for my big sister's hen and had an amazing weekend from start to finish.
Everything was organised to perfection by Charlotte and went so smoothly so we could relax and didn't have to worry about anything.
We particularly enjoyed the life drawing class which really got a giggle and also our delicious breakfast by Mike and Georgia which was just what we needed after our night out in Leeds.
Thank you, Charlotte for such a perfect weekend! The hen couldn't have been happier x
What a fabulous venue for a special occasion. The house is massive and has plenty of room, we were a party of 16!
I would recommend the butlers to add some extra fun to your plans! We also went to Eric’s for afternoon tea, it was delicious!
On Saturday, we had a night out in Leeds which is a short taxi journey away! I would definitely recommend this house for a weekend to remember
Had the best time for Dawn’s hen do at the end of June. Charlotte was so lovely all round and the house was just beautiful. Perfect for a hen do. Had cocktail making with the lovely Steve from York Bartenders and two naked butlers, in which we had a laugh with. Would totally recommend this place as it has everything you need. It is also really clean and tidy. Thanks so much xxxxxx
Norfolk House is a great venue for a large family gathering of people. The rooms are large and spacious with plenty of seating for both relaxing and eating. There are some beautiful bedrooms and people can be spread around the house so there is never a feeling that it is cramped or noisy. The location is ideal only a short walk into Huddersfield and straight off the M62. The host is excellent at communicating and everything ran smoothly from booking to arrival. Darren explained the house in detail on arrival including the hot tub etc There is a 10 pm curfew for being outside which was unfortunate during this very hot weather but understandable as the garden is small and there are other houses in the vicinity. The house is on 4 floors with the kitchen located in the basement along with one bedroom, lounge and dining room on the ground floor and two upper floors so plenty of stairs to climb, there is a fantastic view of Huddersfield from the roof terrace on the top floor. We had a fantastic weekend and visited Holmfirth Vinyard which I can also highly recommend.
Perfect venue for girls weekend last week, everything very well organised and nothing was a bother for the hosts, they will cater for all needs. House was amazing with a very relaxed vibe. I want to do it all again this weekend !!!!! Thanks for having us xxx

Amazing house and perfect for a hen do! We stayed this weekend for Hayley’s Hen and we absolutely loved it! 😃 lots of beautiful rooms and great for group activities and karaoke. Can’t wait to have an excuse to come back again x
We stayed here for my mums birthday all ladies looking for a relaxing chilled weekend with all the family. We visited a local spa and the vineyard and the fab Erics in Lindley. We just loved Huddersfield. Thank you, Charlotte for making mums 60th so so special.
Sophie June 2018 FB
Where to begin... absolutely fabulous! A stunning house decorated to perfection. Stylish decor everywhere! Whether it be the Hendricks gin soap dispenser or vogue coffee table books- this house has it all. Just the perfect setting for the most amazing hen party. I couldn’t have asked for more. Pilates in the morning followed by a gorgeous three-course dinner by Mike and Georgia Parkinson
And a visit to the local vine yard. Thank you so much Charlotte and Darren for providing The Scarlet Hen for my hendo. It will never be forgotten! Lots of love The Hallam Hens
What can we say this house is superb. My husband wanted to celebrate his retirement with his kids, grandkids and great grandkids. We were so lucky to find this beautiful house in Yorkshire that was perfect for all the family. We loved the kitchen and main living room. We had some elderly and very young guests in the party and the house suited everyone. Thanks

Such a beautiful place to hold a hen weekend. Charlotte was amazing throughout the whole booking process and helped organise the caterers and extra activities we booked. There was decorations scattered in the white room ready for our arrival and a bottle of bubbly waiting for the bride to be. A chef provided a beautiful sharing meal for our party of 16 and Mike and Georgia provided the most amazing 3-course meal the next evening. We had a fab DJ and Karaoke and such a laugh with a Murder mystery alongside our 3-course meal. Could not recommend enough. Thank you, Charlotte for an amazing stay! X
Jayne June 2018
Myself and 16 ladies had an amazing hen weekend at Norfolk House, the house is stunning with beautiful bedding and fresh towels for all. We even have a bottle of fizz to welcome us, Charlotte was very helpful throughout the booking process and made me feel at ease with our conversations as organising all the hens seemed crazy at times. The garden and hot tub was a real treat but our favorite room was the white room, such a great party room with disco lights aswell!! Would recommend this house without hesitation.
Charlie June 2018 FB
Just about recovering from a fabulous Hen weekend at Norfolk House! Where do I start?
We couldn’t of found a more beautiful house to host my best friends ‘Huddersfield Hen Party’!
The perfect setting for the Bride-to-Be and her 20 Hens, not too far into Huddersfield town centre for our meal & cocktail masterclass at Slug & Lettuce followed by a night out in Huddersfield.
The weather was perfect so we spent most of our time in the garden enjoying the hot tub, but every room had the wow factor and the ‘White Room’ was the best place for partying.
Thank you so much to Charlotte for being a wonderful host who helped me out with organising and suggesting ideas for all the girls, I’d like to specially thank Mike & Georgia for a delicious breakfast served in the ‘Pink Room’. Everybody’s requirements was catered for and all the stress of feeding 20 girls on time was taken away from us including the washing up!
Also I’d highly recommend The Live Escape Rooms- Huddersfield, just a short drive/walk to 2 locations from NH. Check them out on Facebook for more info �
Overall a weekend we won’t forget and memories to last forever! Thanks again Charlotte, we hope to come back again!
Charlie, Rachel and all the Hens

Back from an amazing weekend for my best friend Sarah's hen weekend. The house is in a perfect location- easy reach into town without feeling like it's in the centre, beautiful park across the road (recommended by Charlotte) which we took blankets and prosecco and sat having a lovely time. The house had so much room for the 16 hens that stayed and the hot tub outside is a bonus! We took park in the life drawing with Charlotte and 'chocolate suprise' which was brilliant and everyone loved it. We also hired the butlers in the buff (the naked men-y'all dark and handsome and great guys) and dj for a party Saturday night all sorted by Charlotte- nothing is too much trouble. To top it off we had gorgeous bank holiday weather! Perfect weekend thankyou!! Highly recommend xx
Laura May 2018 FB
I can't recommend this place highly enough. I went to my friends hen last year and fell in love with the house, so when it came to planning my own hen there was no question about where I would go. The house itself is absolutely beautiful, the beds are all very comfy and the bedrooms are stunning. The outdoor area has the best hot tub I have ever been in. Every single one of my hens were blown away by the house. On arrival we were greeted by Charlotte and given a grand tour of the house. She was lovely and told us all we needed to know for the weekend. We also got a bottle of cava on arrival which I shared with some of my hens on the gorgeous roof terrace while we waited for the others to arrive. The house is close enough to the town centre to walk,if you can bear to leave the house that is. There are plenty of shops,takeaways and restaurants nearby as well. We will definitely be returning in the future

Just a day after leaving this beautiful mansion, I want to go back! We booked Norfolk House for my little sister's Hen Weekend and it was absolutely perfect.
This house is out of this world, Charlotte is an amazing host absolute everything is thought of and provided.We spent most of our time in the White room and Hottub, although the rest of the house is just as beautiful.We had the weekend fully catered Aperyer provided the most delicious evening sharing meal on Friday. Matt & Gemma are amazing.Breakfasts and an Afternoon Tea was provided by Mike & Georgia out of this world.We also had spa treatments from Nefeteris, Karen was lovely and the treatments amazing.This venue blows you away, I will definatley be returning along with the rest of the Hens.
Lynsey May 2018
On arrival you’ll be blown away by how stunning the house and decor is. The dining room is just dreamy! The host, Charlotte is so lovely and welcoming and her ‘checking in’ service and notices are so informative that using the house and it’s facilities is a breeze... She’s literally thought of everything to make your stay as relaxed and easy as possible. The life drawing class was wonderful.. entertaining and cheeky. Even the reluctant artists were impressed with their efforts by the end. A 20 minute minibus ride into Leeds and a 10 walk to Sainsbury’s meant it was an IDEAL location. Couldn’t have asked for more. It was perfect x

I arranged for 16 of my friends to stay at Norfolk House for my best friends hen party. We had to most amazing relaxed weekend. The house was incredible, very clean and my favorite addition was the hottub. We had Aperyer Catering prepare a 3 course Mexican menu for us on the Saturday evening, the service was great and the quality of food was great! We also had Yorkshire Bartender for a cocktail master class that was fun! Would definitely recommend

Just celebrated my friends hen party at Norfolk House. What can I say, a superb venue. The house is incredible, it had everything that we needed.
The hot tub and spa treatments were a great shout to help us with our hangovers. We also did the cocktail making class which was really fun and got us in the Party mood. Everyone had a lovely time. Thank you Charlotte x
April 2018 Heather FB
Had a great time at the house at the weekend! We visited the vineyard in Holmfirth on Saturday morning for a tour and tasting which everyone enjoyed and then headed back to the house for time in the hot tub and spa treatments. The spa ladies were lovely and even let us add on a few extra people who decided they wanted a treatment after hearing the good reviews. Would definitely recommend and would love to come back!
April Danielle 2018 FB
Amazing home, felt incredibly welcome. The catered dinner was delicious, a civilized start to a boozy evening. The cocktail masterclass was so much fun, a lot less rigid than I was imagining, Thomas and Dan were great!

We’re just recovering from spending the weekend at Norfolk House. The house is decorated beautifully and everything has been thought of, including the handy instructions lefts around to help manage all the quirks of the house. There were 22 of us and there was so much space that it was easy for people to go missing! We particularly liked how well the music stations had been placed everywhere too. The loft room would be an amazing space for summer with great views.
There are plenty of shops close by too to replenish the alcohol fridge!
Charlotte has thought of everything to ensure we had the best weekend!
Norfolk House is a great place for a fun filled weekend with friends.
Thank you for having us!

What a perfect house for a hen do! Plenty of space for any activity planned and it definitely has the ‘wow’ factor. Everything was made easy by Charlotte (the host). She was happy to take in our shopping and unpack it in the fridges for us, set up an extra table to create a ‘bubbly bar’ and look out for a parcel being sent from overseas. We really couldn’t have asked for a better host. We opted for the life drawing class and the 3 course meal on the Saturday and we were not disappointed with either. Charlotte ran the life drawing and it was the perfect hen do activity- everyone enjoyed themselves (even those of us who didn’t count themselves as an artist) and we really did get a ‘chocolate surprise’! No one could fault the meal on the evening and not having to cook or clean away made for a seamless night of fun! We couldn’t recommend this venue enough, thanks for a wonderful stay.
Louise March 2018 FB
20 of us stayed at the house for my sisters hen weekend. We were all amazed at how beautiful the house is and it is also very comfortable. The white room is ideal for a party and the hot tub is lovely. Charlotte was very friendly and easy to deal with. Thanks for a lovely stay, Lisa's hens xx

We're just recovering from our amazing Hen weekend at Norfolk House! I was looking for a memorable venue for my sisters Hen weekend and I feel so lucky that we found Norfolk House.The is a home from home stay, everything you need has been thought of. The rooms are spectacular and there is so much room for socialising.We used the caterers for a special meal and they were phenomenal. The rest of the catering we did ourselves and it was a delight to use the kitchen so much space and everything we would possibly need.The hot tub was a big hit even in January.
Taking on such a large house, I was relieved on checking in that Darren said he would be on call for the weekend if we had any issues but everything was perfect and there was no need.
Charlotte was so helpful booking and helped answer so many questions which made our

We brought in 2018 in this wonderful house. 14 adults and 5 children ages ranging from 1-47! Perfect setting for a large gathering. House was amazing with lovely design and space - the pictures don’t do it justice! Charlotte and Darren were extremely accommodating from the moment we booked and throughout our stay. The house is located 10 mins from town if you want to get out and about. There are some great parks for the kids to burn off some energy as well as a great soft play place. We visited the nags head for some lunch which was a lovely pub close by. And we had New Year’s Day lunch at Eric’s restaurant. Would highly recommend both. We all had a wonderful 3 days at Norfolk house and would recommend this venue to all. Thank you so much for a super stay!

We had a truly fabulous time here last weekend! Twelve of my friends joined me celebrating my 40th birthday in this gorgeous house. Charlotte helped my sister to organise a surprise dj for the Friday night which ended up with us laughing hysterically and dancing the night away! This was the perfect setting for a fun filled wkend! Thankyou charlotte, we created wonderful memories in your beautiful home! Xx
We hired the house for a hen weekend - and so glad that we did! The house was amazing and Charlotte the host was wonderful, nothing was too much trouble for her and was so helpful! Friday we went out to Revolutions bar which was less than 10 mins in a taxi and was a fab night out! Saturday we had the ultimate house party with our own chef dj and karaoke machine all organised by Charlotte! Highly recommend this venue!

I booked Norfolk House last weekend for my sister's hen party and it did not disappoint. We had an incredible weekend from start to finish and my little sister absolutely loved the house. You can see from the pictures how beautiful Norfolk House is but it's even better in reality and is beautifully furnished. Not only is the house and facilities brilliant but Charlotte the owner could not have been better. She was there when we arrived to show us around and was super helpful answering all of my questions in the run up to the hen. We hired the cocktail makers for the Friday evening which I would highly recommend. The quality of the drinks were amazing but the way they entertained the party and got them involved was even better. For the Saturday we booked the life drawing class which was hilarious and got us over our hang overs! We surprisingly learned lots about life drawing and ended up thinking we were pro's by the end! ;-) I can not recommend Norfolk House enough. It is the PERFECT place to spend a weekend with friends or family. The hot tun was the icing on the cake for us. Thanks so much for letting us into your beautiful home Charlotte xx

We stayed at Norfolk House for a hen do (17 people) in October 2017. The house is absolutely perfect for a hen do with beautiful decor, plenty of space, a well equipped kitchen, a clean hot tub and very comfortable beds with lovely linen. Charlotte was a fantastic host and was able to accommodate all of our questions prior to our stay. We arrived on the Friday night and had a cosy night in (we ordered pizzas from a local takeaway). On the Saturday we had a cooked breakfast and made DIY flower headbands in the beautiful dining room. We then went to Holmfirth Vineyard for wine tasting and afternoon tea. On the Saturday night we had a buffet meal and enjoyed the karaoke machine which was provided by Charlotte. The song choices were excellent! The house is very well located and has endless character. Thank you so much for having us.

13 of us arrived at the house on Friday afternoon and we totally blown away with how gorgeous the house is! The house is huge These little things really helped us over the weekend iPod docks for music Towels provided Hairdryers in every room Iron (needed this!) Toilet roll provided On Friday night we got taxis to riccis tapas & 53 Degrees north which was lovely. It was around 20 mins by taxi in the house. Saturday we chilled- some of us walked to the pub up the road from the house and some ate in. (Hangovers!) On the Saturday night we had catering and had the most amazing meal £45 per head. The chef was great and katie the waitress was so helpful and they even cleaned up after themselves (it was like they were never there!) Everyone loved the food. We then paid for a dj to play at the house and it really made the night- the atmosphere was amazing and he provided games and every song we requested. Our hen had an amazing time and it will be a weekend to remember always! We are already talking about coming back for our 40th Birthdays!! Charlotte and Darren are fabulous hosts and couldn’t be more helpful. Thanks to you for letting us stay in your wonderful house we have loved every minute 😍

The house is so beautiful there are truly no pictures that really capture how amazing it is. Charlotte really provided us with an exceptional service. My sister (the bride) was completely overwhelmed by the whole experience provided by Charlotte and the services she offered. The cocktail makers really went the extra mile as did the spa ladies. Everything was perfect and completely above all of our expectations. We really can't recommend this enough. Thank you for helping us give my sister such a memorable hen weekend!
This house truly is spectacular. All 19 people who walked around the house were so impressed by how wonderful it was! It's beautifully decorated and incredibly tidy. Each room is amazing. The Saturday was great because some guests had a walk around Huddersfield whilst some of us stayed to use the jacuzzi. It's a really good location. Charlotte was perfect, and answered any of my questions quickly and efficiently. Thank you Charlotte!

We arranged a hen do here for my sister and it was a fantastic weekend! The house is huge and brilliant for having lots of fun. We opted for the posh Mexican buffet as one of our add ons and oh my word!! The best food we have had, it was delicious, plenty of food and the chef and waitress were so lovely!
I would recommend Norfolk House for a hen do as it caters for everyone!
This house is absolutely stunning and perfect for a weekend away with friends and family. Every room is beautifully decorated and there was more than enough space for our party of 19. Charlotte was very helpful in the run up to the hen do and was available to answer any queries over email. We did a cocktail class on the Friday evening which was great fun. The White Room was perfect as we were able to split into a couple of groups and take it in turns to make the cocktails and then sit around on the sofas to drink them. On the Saturday evening we opted to have the 3 course dinner which allowed all the hens to relax throughout the day without the stress of organising food for the evening or having to do the washing up after. Overall we had a lovely time at the house and would definitely recommend it to others thinking of staying somewhere similar.
Siobhan Sept 17
Such a brilliant house to have a hen party for the weekend! The hot tub is lush and the range of rooms means there's so much space! Loved the white room to party in until the early hours. Charlotte couldn't be more helpful in the lead up to the hen. I would highly recommend this place!

What a fabulous house in an amazing location. Such a luxury all in one setting, we loved everything about it and it's even better in real life! The huge park down the road was beautiful and we had a great team game of dodgeball! Also really loved the huge rooms and all the quirky features / decor. The hot tub was great fun too!
Charlotte was always there to answer my queries, help out wherever she could and was very flexible which made organising a big party that little less stressful. Thank you for the best weekend Norfolk House
I booked Norfolk House for my daughter’s hen party from 26th August 2017 – 28th August 2017 for 2 nights/3 days and this was the perfect place for our hen weekend. It was amazing from start to finish.
We arrived in Huddersfield and dropped the hens at a nearby pub, 5 mins walk away, and 4 of our party went to Norfolk House where we were warmly welcomed by the lovely owner of the property, Charlotte. We decorated the house with banners and balloons and awaited the arrival of our Bride to Be and the rest of the hens.
We had ordered an online shop to be delivered to the house earlier in the morning and the owner kindly waited in for the delivery and even put it away for us!
We had arranged to have afternoon tea ready for us for when we arrived and we were not disappointed, it was delicious. The the tea room was decorated beautifully with fine china crockery and bunting.
On the Saturday evening we had booked a Cocktail Masterclass, amazing cocktails, and a Butler in the Buff who was very entertaining and up for a laugh. The white room is the perfect party room for entertaining, loads of space for playing games, dancing, and also relaxing on the large white leather sofas.
The house is beautifully decorated from top to bottom with spacious bedrooms and loads of room for entertaining and relaxing. The lovely kitchen is spacious and has a separate utility room.
The garden area has a hot tub and seating area which was perfect in the lovely sunshine.
The owner, Charlotte, was great, she contacted me every step of the way leading up to our visit and even checked that everything was ok whilst we were there, very reassuring.
Thanks again Charlotte for letting us share your beautiful home, I’m sure we will be booking again.

Thank you for an absolutely brilliant weekend. As the chief bridesmaid, it was my responsibility to organise the hen party, and living in Australia made this even more difficult, however you made the whole planning process so easy, I couldn't have done it without you.
All 19 of us arrived at Norfolk house it completely exceeded our expectations, the size and luxury of the house is beyond what any picture can portray. The house was amazing!
Afternoon tea was being set up ready for us to enjoy and our evening meals were prepared waiting for us to heat in the night. The food was delicious, and the caterers were so lovely. The following day was their wedding anniversary and they came in and cooked us taste sensation. I had the scallops, the duck and the cheesecake and it was high end restaurant quality. So tasty. The feedback from everyone on the food was top. Enjoyed by all.
We did the cocktail class which was a lot of fun, and the spa treatments the next day were perfect for dusting off some of the cobwebs from the night before. The ladies who carried out the spa treatments were so accommodating and very friendly, and the treatment rooms were gorgeous. Very relaxing.
All in all it was a brilliant weekend, and incredible value for money. I would recommend using this for anyone planning a party for a large group. Perfect! Thank you.

I couldn't have chosen a more apt setting for my hen party, Norfolk House had everything that we needed and more - on arrival, all the whole group swooned over every room!! The activities were so much fun! The nude life drawing is something I'm sure none of us will forget, perfect balance of fun and serious!!
The evening 3 course meal was delicious, the dining room is the perfect setting and the chef/ team were fab 😊 We were waited on hand and foot = 21 very happy women!!. The city is just a short walk from the house, we took a stroll in the sunshine and found a beautiful beer garden. A quick trip to Tesco to re-fuel and back into the garden/ hot tub!! Ease of booking/ checking in and out was seamless - the communication recieved from you in terms of managing our booking from the get go was really clear and helpful.
I'd highly recommend to other groups! And i'd definitely come back!!

Charlotte, I would like to start by saying your home is absolutely stunning. Every single thing was absolutely perfect for me and all 16 hens, proving a relaxing, homely yet party atmosphere for us all.
The rooms were comfortable, decorated to the highest of qualities and everything maintained. We had a fabulous time all weekend!
Your hospitality is second to none, your commutation prior to arrival was faultless and you couldn't of provided a better hen do for my best friend.
The activities we did were amazing, the caters provided great service as well as tasty food, setting up and clearing away everything. The pamper treatments were of a high standard and the cocktail masterclass was fun, friendly and perfect addition to the day.
Overall, I couldn't of faulted a thing.
A***** for everything, I will defiantly recommend to all hens out there, and I myself, will be back in the future!
All the best,
Paige Scarlett & all the Hens xxxx
"Charlotte was a brilliant host. She couldn't have been more helpful and responded quickly to any questions i had regardless of how ridiculous they were. She arranged dinner for us on Saturday night, dropping in while we were out to leave food heating in the oven ready for our return. She even brought in our Tesco delivery (sorry again for not being there on time!!). The house is HUUGE, the photos don't even do it justice. It just keeps on opening out into more and more rooms! The beds are really comfortable, the living room fitted fifteen of us comfortably, and the location is great being only 10 mins walk from the train station and town centre. Would highly recommend this house for a large group and Charlotte as a host. We went walking in Holmfirth and visited the fabulous Holmfirth Vineyard for a tour, tasting and lunch"

"Charlotte has been excellent in the run up to our stay at the house and throughout our stay - very accommodating and flexible as we had a few last minute changes to numbers etc. Helping us organise and run an excellent hen activity with Chocolate Surprise! All of the hen party loved it ! The house was amazing, looks exactly like the pictures and was an amazing setting for our hen weekend! The rooms were all amazing and great rooms for dinners, we had a pamper session, tea party, yoga session and all in different parts of the house which was great. I would highly recommend this property and Charlotte was fantastic !! Thank you so much!"

"We stayed at the house for two nights with 17 girls (ages 26-60+) and had an amazing time (there was space for more people as well). The house is beautifully decorated and has loads of space. The rooms and the bathrooms are all really comfortable. It feels like you are in an exclusive boutique hotel. We had a chilled night on the Friday whist everyone arrived. On Saturday we went into Huddersfield for lunch, came back to the house and had a cocktail making class from a butler in the buff and then had dinner cooked by a local chef. We also had karaoke at the house in the evening and lots of games. The hen worked perfectly and we will definitely look at going back again"
From Kate Sept 2016
"Norfolk House is incredible. We had the privilege of occupying the whole house. The dining room and living room were ideal for our large party. And the bedrooms were all marvelously individual. My favorite was the master bedroom…the ensuite impressed us all! We could not have asked for better hosts. Charlotte was informative and offer so much assistance. Darren showed us around and was on call all weekend, not only for house stuff but advice on parking, taxi’s etc. They really went the extra mile for us. But during the weekend they let us be to enjoy their beautiful home. Little things I loved: speakers with phone jacks all over the house, little notes explaining things like hot water and fire exits etc, fridges and freezer were cleared, deliveries were taken by Charlotte the day before we arrived and put away, they responded instantly to texts about anything at any time and most of all, I felt they really cared about us getting the most out of our weekend and enjoying ourselves".
