About us

Lean about the history behind Glendower House and what we have to offer here at Glendower Guest Apartments.


We renovated Glendower House and Apartments including its old servants quarters in 2007/8, and in 2011 decided to build an accommodation business here in the heart of beautiful Norfolk. 


Now we offer a range comfortable, clean and private apartments, each with their own front door, kitchen and bathroom.  Perfect for couples, families and individuals. Bed linen and towels are provided, as is tea and coffee.    

Over the years we’ve enjoyed the company of thousands of guests who have enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and surprising peace considering our town centre proximity.

We do hope you’ll choose to stay here very soon. 

A bit of history:

Our house and Dereham enjoy a rich history.

Glendower House was built on the site of Barnyards Mill over 100 years ago and has been home to wealthy merchants and traders.

Glendower House is on Commercial Road which is a continuation of Cowper Road. Famous poet William Cowper is one of East Dereham’s most famous residents, and it was a relative of his who wrote a novel aboutOwen Glendower - just one explanation as to how the house may have been named.

The name Glendower is folk lore in Wales where Owen Glendower sought to make Wales the dominant force in the United Kingdom.

Owen Glendower, with the help of the French, challenged the English who in return lay siege to the Welsh army - forcing them to retreat. Owen Glendower disappeared, and his fate is still a mystery today.

Today Glendower House is directly adjacent to Dereham town centre - Britain's 6th largest market town, right in the centre of Norfolk.  Norfolk is rich in culture and landscape, enjoying beautiful beaches, forests and thriving market towns that still have a distinctly English personality. 

Glendower House is the ideal base to explore all that Norfolk has to offer
