The hall for rent was built on the moated site of the original Woodrising Old Hall which had medieval origins and is reputed to have hosted Queen Elizabeth I who had dinner there on her way from Breckles to Thetford – some records state the Monarch was there for four nights.

This medieval hall was owned by privy councillor Sir Richard Southwell in the 16th century and boasted a two-mile deer park although it was later demolished.

Tiffanie Kerr, lettings development manager at Brown&Co, said: “These kinds of properties rarely come up for rent. Woodrising Hall offers a fantastic opportunity to live in a property surrounded by countryside yet close to Hingham and with the knowledge that the site once hosted Royalty.”
