Horatio Nelson’s Suite

Nelson’s Suite is a luxurious 250 square foot private room, situated on the first floor of Swafield Hall.  Local legend is that Horatio Nelson stayed in the house. He visited the local area many times and attended Paston Grammar School, North Walsham, until he was 12 years old. North Walsham is 2 miles from Swafield.
Nelson’s Suite has recently been renovated and retains its original features like antique plaster, bay windows, servants bell mechanisms, servants door and C18th enfilade doors.
 The suite can be rented for special occasions to accomodate larger parties of guests. It sleeps 2 and contains a large lounge/bedroom with exposed oak beams, kingsize bed, 42″ flat screen TV, polished wood floors, crystal chandelier, antique furniture, bay sash windows and stunning views over the parterre and main lawn.  It has its own en-suite with victorian style shower and original fireplace.  Please contact us if you would be interested in booking this room as part of your visit.
