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 two-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.
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.
We are pleased to welcome the award winning chef & management team of Ben & Sarah Handley from The Duck Inn, Stanhoe, as the new tenants of the Hunworth Bell. An extensive refurbishment is currently underway with a plan to re-open very soon.
Stody Lodge Gardens had a fantastic 2017 open gardens season with a record number of visitors and over £13,000 raised for a variety of charities. Visitor info for 2018 will shortly be updated to our page Visitor Info .
