Discover the charm and character of The Old Rectory, a delightful Georgian 'Country House' style hotel in Thorpe St Andrew, a leafy conservation area on the eastern fringes of Norwich. The hotel stands in an acre of mature gardens and most rooms have south-facing views over the river Yare valley and Thorpe marshes, Norwich's newest nature reserve. Enjoy our warm hospitality, our award winning food and service and the relaxing and friendly atmosphere you often find only in a small, independent hotel.
The Georgian main house dates back to 1754 whilst the adjacent Victorian Coach House (as its name suggests, formerly a stable block) was built just under a century later. Since coming to The Old Rectory in 1995, we have tastefully and extensively refurbished the whole property creating a warm and welcoming environment.
Leisure visitors can enjoy afternoon tea by our welcoming log fire, which awaits you in the winter months on your return from a day's sightseeing or shopping, or perhaps laze a while on our pool terrace in the summer. Business guests will find The Old Rectory a calm and restful setting in which to relax from the strains of the working day, enjoy a delicious meal and feel revived and refreshed after a good night's sleep.
The Old Rectory is conveniently located just a few minutes by bus, car or taxi from Norwich city centre and railway station; Norwich International Airport is about 5 miles away. The Norfolk Broads are a short drive and there are many visitor attractions within easy reach, including National Trust and English Heritage properties, RSPB and Norfolk Wildlife Trust reserves (Thorpe Marshes is just across the road), museums, churches etc. Amongst the country's top 10 shopping destinations, Norwich also has historic buildings galore (including two cathedrals and a Norman castle), theatres, cinemas and a large open air market open six days a week.
