- The background images used on this page are not royalty-free. Please use images from your own collection.  
 
- The page SAMPLE is a "hidden" page that contains sets of elements grouped into "sections": Title + photo, Icons + text, text + icons + video, etc...  
 
Select the section that best fits the design desired and copy/paste it onto your page (to “paste” in a specific location, right-click and choose Paste). Be sure to take the entirety of the section by selecting its external container (the one containing the background image or color). 
 
- Important: each "section" must have one, and only one, inner container (element group) for the section content. The outer margins of this sub-container set minimum distances from section boundaries.
 
- The "Horizontal" button in the "Selection" menu controls the automatic centering of an element. 

- To change the order of elements - i.e. place an element below another in a "relative" positioned container (like most of the content in the sections), use the Element Explorer on the left: green "arrow buttons" will appear when it is possible to change the order. Icons under an element and above the element group allow to put elements onto the same "line" and modify alignment.
 
- The entire header menu can be modified in its dedicated Layer (e.g. "Base_MenuRetractable"; simply change the page’s Layer to use a different menu). Use this to modify menu links (by copy/pasting existing links), change the colors etc. Note that these elements are pre-programmed to work with one another, so try to avoid “dragging” new ones on that could disrupt the general responsive behavior of the menu (favor using copy & paste).

To change the appearance of the page, edit the styles of the corresponding elements (in most cases by using the "Main Frame" Style Zone).  
 
To change the menu’s links: edit, copy-paste, or delete the Link Elements within. 
 
To hide an element without deleting it, use its property Visible.
To "activate" displaying of an arrow, use its property "Visible"

HEMPSTEAD HALL
TRADITIONAL       TRANQUIL       TERRIFIC



Welcome to our country house bed & breakfast. Hempstead Hall is a 19th Century farm house steeped in history with records dating the farm back to the 13th century. Enjoy a relaxed stay with the Mack family on our working arable farm that stretches to 300 acres of tranquil North Norfolk countryside.




Arriving down our private 1/2 mile long drive you will notice the hall emerging from the end of our front meadows where cattle, horses and donkeys can often be seen grazing, or the resident barn owl hunting . Arriving in the farm yard you will know you are in for a relaxing time, with no sound of traffic, just the chatter of the farmyard ducks. Home to the Mack family since the 1930's Hempstead Hall is a fine example of 19th century architecture. The interior is decked with period furniture to maintain that historic feel and guests dine in the large dining room around a grand dining table when tucking into one of Lynda's famous traditional farmhouse breakfasts.



Take walks to see the local wildlife, cycle to the coast for delicious dining or shop till you drop in the Georgian town of Holt. Quite simply you cannot beat Hempstead Hall for location. Just 2 miles from the delightful town of Holt and 5 miles from the coast, the possibilities are endless. You can relax in the kitchen garden amongst the well maintained flower and vegetable patches watching ducks and chickens strutting their stuff. Once you have enjoyed a breath of fresh air why not plan that evening out at one of the many top class pubs and restaurants that North Norfolk has to offer.

The Farm and its History
Hempstead Hall Farm is run as a family partnership and currently headed by William Mack. The farm is steeped in history with many historical finds mapped on the farm, impressive farm buildings dating from the 1700’s and a crater caused by a German bomb being dropped during WWII. The Mack family have farmed at Hempstead Hall since William’s Grandfather and Father purchased the farm from the Gurney family in the 1940’s. 

When the farm was purchased it was in a very poor state (as was UK agriculture). Henry Mack (William’s late Father) took it upon himself to tidy up the farm and built a business based on a mixed system of arable crops combined with beef & dairy herds.

The herds gave way in the mid 1960’s and the business utilised the light North-Norfolk soils to concentrate on growing malting barley. The Mack family take conservation and the environment very seriously and this is notable by the many species of bird that can be found on the farm. William was presented with a wildlife conservation award by John MacGregor (agriculture minister) in 1987. This tradition of farmland conservation has continued and the farm is currently part of the Higher Level Stewardship scheme with grasslands, wild bird seed mixes, pollen and nectar mixes and many bird and bat boxes all contributing to flourishing wildlife numbers on the farm.

Guests are welcome to walk around the farm and try to spot the resident deer population, buzzards and red kites riding the thermals, numerous brown hares playing in the fields plus many many more.
