This delightful home, situated on a working farm is a fantastic place to stay for anyone wishing to explore this part of East Anglia and blends characterful charm with contemporary styling perfectly.

This handsome detached farmhouse was renovated in 2018, bringing to life a light-filled property with plenty of space to enjoy a holiday with family or friends. Two separate lounges ensure that everyone is able to make the most of their time away, whether spending it together or slipping away for some quiet reading time. The kitchen has been equipped with keen cooks in mind and has a sleek, elegant feel to it with its vaulted ceiling and electric Aga.

The historic towns of Bury St Edmonds and Norwich are both situated within 25 miles of the property, whilst the coast at Southwold is a little further away, at 40 miles east, but is well-worth the trip for its beautiful sandy beach and the iconic beach huts and pier.

The rural position on the farm was just perfect the added bonus were the cows across the yard ready to give birth and hearing them during the stay was excellent just what we wanted and all still in walking distance to the village.

I really like this cottage. It has a good relaxing feel to it. As we were at this cottage for Christmas, a lot of cooking was done. Having never cooked with an AGA, I was impressed with how easy it was too use get good results. The is an AGA cookery book in the cottage that gives good instructions.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
