    “Relaxing country retreat”

    We stayed at this beautiful spacious house for a month during COVID whilst having building work done on our own house and it honestly felt like a holiday (even though we were still working). We took our 2 teens, 2 dogs and even the cat and we all really enjoyed our stay here! The dogs in particular enjoyed the spacious garden to play in, we enjoyed playing in the snow too! This house has literally everything you’d ever need on a day to day basis, home from home really. We only needed to bring ...

    We stayed at this beautiful spacious house for a month during COVID whilst having building work done on our own house and it honestly felt like a holiday (even though we were still working). We took our 2 teens, 2 dogs and even the cat and we all really enjoyed our stay here! The dogs in particular enjoyed the spacious garden to play in, we enjoyed playing in the snow too! This house has literally everything you’d ever need on a day to day basis, home from home really. We only needed to bring our clothes, bathroom bits and food. We enjoyed the cozy evenings in front of the wood burner in the living room (another in the dining room too) and walked every day in the local area. We also went further a field in the car to the many surrounding walks in Thetford forest. I frequently used the large slow cooker to prepare meals that would last for days and quickly got used to using the kitchen appliances. We honestly could live in this house, very comfortable in every way, even the beds! Northwold is a peaceful friendly village, every body we met was friendly. You do need to drive out of the village to buy your food items. Brandon is the next nearest town, just a10 min drive and you have Tesco and Aldi there. There is a garage, small shop and excellent fish and chip shop in mundford which is only a 5 min drive away. I highly recommend this property to anyone that likes peace and quiet surrounded by beautiful walks and we certainly plan to come and stay again in the future. Fiona was always on hand via message if I had any enquiries and was always extremely helpful.

The property

This superb property dates back to the 16th and 17th centuries, surrounded by quaint, historic towns and packed full of original features, ideal for a family looking for a rural retreat on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk.

As you enter the property, you come to a small hallway with lovely tiling, leading off to different rooms.

Head to the right and enter the dining room, where you will be welcomed by the woodburning stove and character features including exposed brickwork, dark wooden beams and wooden doors.

From here, step into the well-equipped, stylish kitchen which boasts a large Belfast-style sink, a beautiful tiled floor, exposed brickwork, wooden worktops, light units and utility area, where you can cook up a delicious treat for your loved ones to enjoy.

Off the kitchen, the small garden room is a beautiful, quiet space where you can enjoy a moment just to yourself.

Back on the opposite side of the hallway, on the left is the sitting room, complete with seating, a TV with DVD player, good WiFi service and another cosy woodburner, this space is great for relaxing at the end of the day as you sit and chat with your loved ones or watch a film as you wind down at the end of the day.

Upstairs there are three spacious bedrooms, one twin, one double, and one king-size double, a great setup for a family and all of which boast fantastic views of the surrounding area.

Here, you will also find the shared bathroom, which has plenty of natural light and features a good set of facilities including a separate shower cubicle and corner bath.

At the back of the house, a small porch leads out into a large, fully enclosed wall country garden, boasting its own wattle and daub hobbit house and even an air raid shelter, making this an amazing space that children will love playing and exploring in.

Garden House is situated in a super location within easy travelling distance to local attractions including the beautiful Tudor house, Oxburgh Hall, as well as many historic towns and quaint country villages.

For a little more adventure, head to Thetford Forest, just 9 miles away, and enjoy a range of activities including the treetop adventures at Go Ape, mountain biking and plenty of walking trails to explore.

Lynford Hall is a must see, with a stunning natural lake, perfect for bird-watching much like the other surrounding RSPB reserves at Hockwold and Lakenheath.

If you do decide to explore Lakenheath, be sure to check out the incredible RAF aircraft, offering plenty of plane watching fun for the whole family.

Garden House is a beautiful home, perfect for a family looking to spend time exploring the rural and historic villages on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.

About the location

NORTHWOLD

Swaffham 10.5 miles, Thetford 13 miles, Ely 26 miles, Bury St. Edmunds 25 miles

Surrounded by farmland and nestled in beautiful Norfolk countryside, lies the idyllic village of Northwold. The village lies close to the border of Norfolk and Suffolk, making it perfect for exploring and making the most of all that East Anglia has to offer. The church of St Andrew, dating back to the early 13th century, is in the village centre along with the pub, The Crown Inn. Northwold lies in an area of Norfolk known as the “Brecks”, which has a unique landscape of beautiful Scots Pine forest, heathlands, wetlands, chalk streams and pingo ponds. Explore nearby Thetford Forest, Grimes Graves (the only Neolithic flint mine open to visitors in Britain), or visit the National Trust’s Oxburgh Hall or Gooderstone Water Gardens (both 6 miles). Venture slightly further afield to the historic towns of Ely, Bury St Edmunds or King’s Lynn for stunning architecture and a superb variety of shops, bars and restaurants. Visitors can also make a day trip to the North Norfolk Coast which is just an hour away. Northwold is a great base for exploring Norfolk, all year round.
