The garden is c. 1 acre in size and very private. We have converted one of the period barns into a games room, to include table tennis, pool, darts and numerous games etc. The kitchen benefits from a walk-in larder and separate utility room, with washing machine, dishwasher and separate large fridges & freezer. The lounge has soft seating for 18 with an open fire-place (logs can be provided for a fee). There is a wall mounted Sony Smart TV, with surround sound cinema system, connected to the internet and with a library of films for those rainy/lazy days in. If you have your own lovefilm or similar account, you can access them via this TV setup. There is a heated swimming pool, with enclosure for all year around swimming and we have recently installed a 6-person sauna also.

Spacious, well equipped and gorgeous farmhouse.
We were a group of 18 ladies on our annual weekend away. Leading up to the break Clair kept us fully informed and gave us very detailed info ready for our stay.....right down to the best place to stand for a O2 signal. We arrived on a sunny Friday night to a clean spacious farmhouse, well kept gardens and a some welcome bottles of wine for the group. The bedrooms were all spacious and the kitchen was more than fully equipped. We had caterers in to cook for us on the Saturday night from Dereham called 'Tall Orders' .....highly recommend. Overall we all loved the cottage and can't speak highly enough of it. We filled it to the full capacity of 18 and never felt on top of each other. Many thanks Clair

Large, well equipped, nicely decorated farmhouse
The house sleeps 18 and is really spacious. All the bedrooms are big, so even if in a triple, there's plenty of space for everyone in the rooms. The dining table is huge and there are plenty of chairs for everyone to sit comfortably, equally there are plenty of plates/bowls/cutlery/glasses etc for everyone. The lounge is much bigger than pictures look and very sociable due to the layout. There's a fireplace as well for chilly nights. Overall, the house is really nicely decorated, spacious, well equipped and cosy. There's also a great games room outside to keep kids/big kids entertained.

Delightful Farmhouse Accommodation
Congratulations on the conversion of the farmhouse to superb spacious holiday accommodation – done very tastefully, to a very high standard and exceptionally well fitted out. It was ideal for our family gathering – fifteen of us spread over three generations. We couldn’t have asked for more! Definitely to be recommended. The Wilfords
