  • "What a lovely weekend we had for my partners birthday."

    Thank you for the lovely baked goods which were a nice extra touch. Was lovely to have coffee and milk there too so when we arrived we could have a hot drink after the drive. The hut was so lovely and well looked after. It was perfect for our weekend and I have even forwarded it to a few friends so they can book and enjoy it too. Thank you so much :)

  • "We stayed for two nights and had the best time - I couldn't recommend it enough!"

    The attention to detail, cleanliness and welcome package - including a homemade cake, jam and flowers - made the stay even more enjoyable. The hot tub was perfect for stargazing and extremely relaxing.

  • "Fantastic value lovely location welcome pack unbelievable chocolate cakes fresh scones milk butter and tea/coffe sugar some really nice touches very well equipped will definitely be coming back ."

    2 minor faults was as your on a working farm there are flies so a fly zapper in the lodge would of been great to keep them at bay and the other thing would be some storage boxes under the bed for your clothes.

  • "Lovely little cabin."

    Ben (the property owner) was kind. Lots of farm animals to interact with and watching the sunrise was the best. Get's a little hot at night so I'd suggest bringing a fan. Other than that it was fantastic

  • "A really lovely break away from hustle and bustle of life."

    We could relax and take in farming life while appreciating wildlife and the animals around us, especially two hand reared lambs who were local residence and very friendly. Destination was very central to both kings Lyn and Swatham so great location too. The hot tub was a great addition and was also well maintained. Thank you to Diane and Ben who left a delicious handmade cake on our arrival along with scones, after a long travel up was perfect addition to a cup of tea. Truly relaxing experience.

Alternatively, you can eat your meals outside on the decking, or stroll down to the lawned level and use the shared fire pit/pizza oven before soaking in the hot tub.

Back inside, rinse off before bed in the shower room, which comes equipped with robes and slippers, before stargazing through the roof window or watching a film on the TV to unwind.

Little Abbey Farm Pods

Little Abbey Farm Pods consist of a collection of two thoughtfully-designed, studio-style pods resting in lovely grounds in the village of Pentney, Norfolk. Both with hot tubs, indoor and outdoor kitchens, and completed to the highest standards, the pods make a superb choice for two couples of friends looking to retreat to the countryside. Overlooking a pond in one direction and actively farmed grounds with sheep, cows and chickens in the other, the true country feel makes the pods a special choice, any time of year. The site is also home to a B&B where the owners kindly extend their services, including use of the breakfast room and you can even order fresh, homemade food, including cakes, and farm produce straight to your pod for that extra bit of rest during your trip. The peaceful location extends into the heart of the country village, with Pentney homing a Pentney Abbey, the castle ruins and its original walls which surround the village; for the more active members of your group, Pentney Lakes is also fantastic for water skiing. Within reach is the waterside historical Hanseatic town of King’s Lynn, with easy access to Cambridge and Ely too. For historians of your group, there are many National Trust Houses to explore, including Oxborough Hall and St George’s Guildhall. A wealth of characterful market towns can also be reached by car, such as Wisbech, home to the amazing historic Peckover House and Gardens, and the city of Peterborough, ideal for a day of shopping and dining. For those looking to sit back and enjoy the nature-filled area, find Welney Wash Wetlands for birdwatching nearby, along with nature reserves and wildlife centres to explore. If you simply want to venture out on foot or by bike, the area is full of lanes, paths and roads to explore and make your own adventure! Whatever you get up to on your Norfolk holiday, choose Little Abbey Farm Pods as your base.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
