Bressingham Hall

Near Diss, Norfolk
The Bloom Family
17 acres

Having carried out a strategic review of our client’s property holdings, we identified an innovative opportunity to develop several buildings and open new income streams in the hospitality and tourism sectors.


Our client owns 17 acres of stunning privately-owned gardens, which set the scene for diversification into high-quality wedding and hospitality venues.

However, it wasn’t a straightforward planning process as it included the conversion of the curtilage listed 18th century High Barn into a boutique events space and the installation of a high-quality marquee, together with consent to replace it with a permanent structure in three years’ time. 

We managed the project from start to finish and identified the best fit in terms of wedding and hospitality operators to work with our client throughout the development stage and to eventually run the finished venues.

The project also involved the extensive refurbishment of the beautiful Grade II listed Georgian mansion house, Bressingham Hall, to accommodate a total of 19 guests with exclusive use of the luxurious surroundings

To enable the project, we facilitated most of the funding through the sales of peripheral farmland. The valuable new income source from the Hall and High Barn seamlessly complements the existing horticultural business.

Bidwells was instrumental in helping us turn our vision into reality, offering a more innovative approach which no other company seemed to offer.
