A warm welcome awaits you in this traditional Country House reminiscent of days gone by. Roaring fires, comfy sofas, country walks and the feeling that you’re not so much a guest as a welcome friend come to visit.
Red Lodge has an impeccable pedigree. Dating from the late 1800’s we form part of Narford Hall, one of Norfolk’s oldest Landed Estates with over 3000 acres, 1500 acres of which is woodland and actively managed with the recently restored Parkland and Avenue. Red Lodge was named after a Virginia Creeper that covered the building turning a glorious ruby red in the Autumn sun.
Whilst the Virginia Creeper may have been lost in the mists of time, the history and tradition of Red Lodge continue. Narford Hall was built in 1702 and the family occupying Narford are the descendants of the original founder.
Everyone here at Narford respects the history and tradition of the Landed Estate and at Red Lodge we offer you an experience of life the way it used to be – relaxed, connected to the natural world with food sourced locally and prepared according to traditional methods.
Here we cure our own bacon, we bake our own bread. The venison we give you for dinner will come from the fields and woodlands on the Estate. Your game pie is raised by hand, with pheasant and goose shot on the Estate often by the current Encumbent. We even have our own flock of hens to provide your breakfast egg!
We really take cooking back to its grass roots. Starting with superlative raw materials our highly experienced Executive Chef will elevate the simple to the extraordinary providing you with one of the best dining experiences you are likely to have, ever.
