Superbly renovated, this large farmhouse enjoys a secluded position yet just 4 miles from Hunstanton, ideal for family gatherings.
This spacious and character-filled farmhouse commands views of the surrounding mixed arable farmland. Comfortable and airy, it enjoys a secluded and quiet position amidst a south-facing, half-acre garden, with furnished sitting-out area and terrace. Set to the north of Sandringham, it is well placed for exploring the many delights of Norfolk’s coast and countryside. The traditional seaside resort of Hunstanton is just 4 miles away, where a variety of attractions include the theatre, a public swimming-pool, facilities for water-skiing, an 18-hole golf course (handicap certificate required), sports centre and tennis courts. This area is ideal for keen bird-watchers and walkers, with many posted walks through countryside and the Peddar’s Way (a trackway used from Roman times) close by, and RSPB reserves at Holme and Titchwell (3 miles). Stately homes and gardens such as those at Houghton and Holkham make for interesting day trips, and there is an array of attractions on offer for the children. Sandringham Estate which is one of the Queen’s country homes is well worth a visit and is open to the public unless a member of the Royal family is residence. Only an 18-mile drive away is King’s Lynn – a busy town with several splendid Tudor and Georgian buildings and is perfect for meandering down the alleyways that lead back from the pretty waterfront. A short distance is the pretty town of Burnham Thorpe – birthplace of Horatio Nelson and where today in the parish church the lectern is made out of timbers taken from his famous ship the Victory, as well as a small exhibition on his life. Closer to home are the beaches, shops, pubs and restaurants of Thornham (1 mile).
