  • "We had a really lovely stay at the Granary."

    Christine is lovely, friendly and welcoming. The Granary is very cosy and has everything you need. We enjoyed the bottle of wine that was left for us. We loved being on the farm and seeing all the horses and some that were in training. The dogs were very friendly and loved the attention we gave them. We will be booking again for next year. We love the Granary and it’s story. Thank you for a lovely week.

  • "Lovely cottage with great location."

    Great to have racehorses on site and see them on the gallops. Dogs were super friendly, shame ours wasn't!! Great base for relaxing and visiting Norwich and coast. Everyone very friendly and helpful and really enjoyed our stay in the beautiful Granary with stunning roses. Shame had to leave early due to work/traffic issues.

    If you like horses you'll like it here too. Warm and friendly. About an hour to closes seaside, local shop about a mile walk. Dereham about 8 miles away has everything you could need. Booked for next year already.

  • "We really enjoyed our long weekend at the Granary, although did feel that the property could benefit from a bit of TLC."

    Some of the fixtures and fittings were a bit tired and the beds had seen better days. It was cosy and warm though and fitted the bill for us. We enjoyed the log burner in the evenings and visiting the horses in the afternoons. Thank you. P.S. A small dishwasher would be a bonus!

About the location

HINGHAM

Wymondham 6 miles; Watton 7 miles; Norwich 15 miles.

Quietly nestling amidst the stunning Norfolk countryside, the ancient town of Hingham boasts two village greens, a pub serving good food, and a number of independent amenities including a variety of shops, along with an array of Georgian architecture not to be missed. Previously the home of Samuel Lincoln, whose direct descendant was Abraham Lincoln, this quaint town is home to a 14th century church where you can view a bust of the former President himself. The historical town of Wymondham, with its ancient abbey and original stone cross and nearby Watton both offer great shopping and a weekly market, whilst nearby Norwich is rich in culture, history and the arts. There’s plenty of great walking, cycling and wildlife watching opportunities in the surrounding area and combined with great fishing, several easily accessible golf courses and both motor racing at Snetterton and horse racing at Fakenham, this fabulous location has plenty to offer at any time of year.
