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.

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

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 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!

Such a beautiful house! Perfect for my friend’s hen weekend. Charlotte the owner was great and made us feel very welcome 😊

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 😍
Katie and girls Oct 17
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!

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!
Jane Sept 17
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!!
Love Clover and fam xx. July 2017
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 aswell 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"
From William Aug 2016
"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 and 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!"
From Claire June 2016
"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 marvellously individual. My favourite 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 round 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".
