White House Farm Cottages

These attractive brick and pantile cottages are nestled in a gravelled courtyard of five properties and are situated in a tranquil setting in the village of Wood Norton amidst the Norfolk countryside. Sympathetically converted from former farm buildings, these single-storey cottages are ideally suited for those wishing to explore the glorious North Norfolk coastline and the picturesque, historic nearby market towns of Fakenham and Holt. Each of these cottages offer bright, spacious accommodation, traditionally furnished with modern facilities. Well-equipped and welcoming, they share a large sheltered courtyard and have the benefit of their own private patio where you can relax and unwind. For the younger members of the family, the cottages have a splendid communal play area with swings, slide and a seesaw, a grass tennis court and a table tennis room. The popular Georgian market town of Holt has excellent amenities with a wide choice of interesting independent shops, pubs, tea rooms and restaurants. Be sure to take a trip on the steam train from here which runs to the traditional seaside town of Sheringham, or take a short drive to the coast, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a haven for birdwatchers and walkers. With miles of sandy beaches and majestic dunes, these cottages are ideally placed for taking boat trips to see the seals or simply visiting the RSPB reserves and coastal paths. Well worth a visit is the historic city of Norwich, with its magnificent cathedral towering above the surrounding medieval streets hosting museums, galleries and excellent shopping facilities. These cottages are well-placed in Norfolk to enjoy a wide variety of attractions.

    • “A nice location which was peaceful and relaxing. There were lots of places to visit with the coast being a short drive away. Found a nice village pub about a mile away which did good home made food. All in all a great cottage and an enjoyable holiday.”

    Mr Spiller, Hull, August 2015

    • “Absolutely fab, the whole family loved it.”

    Miss Elliott, Chesterfield, May 2015

    • “A spacious and well planned barn conversion on a working farm. The cottages were in a lovely courtyard and access to them was very well maintained. It was so nice to have spacious, secure off road parking. The space to sit outside was very nice, this cottage was quite private as it faced the fields rather than the other cottages. Also, it was not too far off the beaten track but far enough to be peaceful. Hope to stay here again!”

    Mr Newbury, Blyth, May 2015

    • “Lovely big open plan barn with so much space. Lovely owner and quiet location .”

    Mrs Cooper, Queenborough, November 2014

    • “A lovely cottage, was secure as it was a gated property. It was well laid out and loved the four poster!”

    Mrs Pettitt-Rose, Nottingham, October 2014

    • “An absolutely fabulous cottage in a wonderful setting. A great area for exploring with the family. Very spacious and comfortable, thank You.”

    Mrs Hancock, Gloucester, July 2014

    • “Loved the quiet setting, grass tennis court and the wonderful size of the bedrooms and sitting room. Much bigger than the pictures suggest! Everything was done to a very high standard and beautifully clean. Everything had been thought of - there were even hair driers in each room. Great location.”

    Dr Peaker, Oxford, May 2014

Fakenham is just six miles away and is home to a national hunt racecourse and has a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants. The popular market town of Holt is close by and is well known for a wonderful array of independent food stores, craft shops, tea rooms and restaurants. Further afield are the seaside villages of Wells and Blakeney as well as the more traditional resorts of Cromer and Sheringham. The cathedral city of Norwich is a wonderful location for a day out, plus there are many National Trust properties in the area just waiting to be discovered.
