Rokeles Hall is an attractive Grade II Listed country house dating back to the mid-17th century with later additions including the striking mid-18th century facade with a large projecting five bay pediment, with two bays either side. The hall is described in Pevsners The Buildings of England as having a Dutch-like pediment in the North gable end with the initials T.S. This is for Thomas Scott (died 1672) who had bought the manor from the Heighoe family in 1642. The hall enjoys well-proportioned rooms throughout with a particularly spacious drawing room, an elegant dining room and a large entrance hall with impressive wood panelling, and all with open fireplaces or a wood burner. To the rear is a well-fitted kitchen breakfast room with Aga and lovely views of the garden, as well as utility room, boot room, garden room, orangery and cellar. Upstairs to the first and second floors is flexible accommodation for up to seven bedrooms and five bathrooms (three en-suite). The house is well laid out and despite being about 350 years old is very well suited to modern family living.
This property has 7.9 acres of land.
The hall is approached from the north down a long gravelled tree-lined drive sweeping up to the house, which enjoys a delightful west facing position overlooking parkland and mature grounds. The main formal gardens lie to the east at the rear of the hall with large expanses of lawn, separated by well stocked herbaceous borders and rose beds. There are some fine specimen trees surrounding a large pond on the far side of the lawn. The grounds in all stretch to 7.9 acres allowing for plenty of space in the fenced parkland at the front of the house for ponies and horses. There is plenty of space for parking cars at the front of the property and access to the double garage.
Rokeles Hall is situated in Watton Green a mile east of Watton and 5 miles west of Hingham, a small pretty Georgian town which provides excellent amenities, as does Watton. There are Waitrose supermarkets at both Swaffham (10 miles) and Wymondham (13 miles), mainline rail stations in Attleborough (11 miles) and Thetford (15 miles) with connections to Cambridge and London Kings Cross or Liverpool Street. The cathedral city of Norwich is renowned for its shopping and leisure facilities, as well as having the university and expanding international airport.
From Norwich head south west on the B1108, heading through Hingham towards Watton. Upon reaching the 40 mph speed limit into Watton, turn right onto Summer Lane signposted to Carbrooke. Follow this lane for just over half a mile before turning left at the junction on entering Carbrooke. Continue along Drury Lane, which then turns into Watton Green for just over a mile and the drive way for Rokeles Hall will be on the left hand side.Read all
