An elegant manor house in a delightful rural setting

Thorp House is in the picturesque Norfolk village of Griston, close to the market town of Watton and within easy reach of Attleborough, Dereham and Thetford.

The peaceful setting of this delightful converted rectory is the perfect place for high quality nursing, residential, dementia and respite care.

The home has spacious and comfortable living accommodation with a number of beautifully decorated and furnished dining rooms, lounges and conservatories.

The bedrooms have individual character and include self-contained bungalow style accommodation for the more independent residents.

Thorp House is blessed with extensive, well-maintained gardens which have their own resident peacocks.

Residents appreciate the fact their home is at the heart of community life with Thorp House hosting regular and successful events such as fetes.
