Congham Hall, A Countryside Retreat

Congham Hall Library shelves

The beautiful privately-owned manor, Congham Hall Hotel and Spa is nestled in the idyllic Norfolk countryside. The manor house was built in 1780 and became a hotel in the early 1980s. The hotel embodies classic English luxury, with stunning public areas, refurbished guest rooms and state-of-the-art bathrooms. Ultimate Library was thrilled to be able to collaborate on a book collection for the hotel which would speak to its elegance, place and ethos.

Ultimate Library was asked to curate a collection for the main library, bar area and the bedrooms, along with a children’s library and decorative coffee table books. The books selected offered a range of genres and themes that created a sense of place and history relating to the local area. We also included a tempting selection of classic and recent fiction titles for guests to enjoy during their stay.

The illustrated coffee table books for the bar featured titles on food and drink with attractive photography and high-quality production to fit the luxurious aesthetic of the room. The children’s library entertains the little ones with fun, educational titles for all reading levels.

The book collection adds warmth, welcome and interest for guests on their relaxing retreat in the Norfolk countryside.

‘In 2013 we asked Ultimate Library to provide us with a library of interesting and amusing books for Congham Hall, some with a connection to the local area. Our guests really appreciate the selection and so we decided to put another library in one of our larger suites in 2017. We really loved working with the Ultimate Library team and we couldn’t recommend their services more.’ – Ruth Dickinson, Hotel Director
