Welcome to Stody Estate, a family-run, diversified and ever-evolving estate located in the heart of North Norfolk’s finest rolling countryside. We offer visitors access to one of the largest and most dramatic rhododendron and azalea gardens in the country and, through our unique selection of commercial and residential properties, the opportunity to live and work in the beautiful Glaven Valley. The Estate also has extensive farming, conservation, forestry, water management and renewable operations as well as a strong commitment to education and local charities.
Stody Lodge is renowned for its extensive collection of rhododendrons and azaleas which burst into spectacular colour each spring. A walk through its stunning four-acre Azalea Water Gardens, believed to be the largest single planting of brightly-coloured azalea mollis in the country (over 2,000 plants), is a truly unique experience.
Stody Lodge Gardens had a fantastic 2017 open gardens season raising over £13,000 for a variety of local and natiuonal charities. Visitor info for May 2018 is available here.
Properties to Rent
In and around the attractive villages of Stody, Hunworth, Edgefield and Hindringham, the Estate owns and lets a range of mixed-use commercial buildings and currently has several sites available for development. It also lets a wide variety of picturesque residential properties, varying in size from one to six bedrooms.
For 20 years, Stody Estate has provided 13 miles of permissive paths and 2 open access / dog walking areas for the local community to enjoy under a DEFRA Permissive Paths scheme. Unfortunately the Government has decided to cancel these schemes and so this permissive access comes to an end on 31st January 2018. Please see the following link for details.
