  • "The owners of the property literally thought of everything, a welcome pack, list of numbers of restaurants ,cabs, things to do, and even where the local petrol stations were."

    Such a quite area no light pollution. Jimmy's place was clean, and had all the things u could want, WiFi , 2 TVs, books , games ect if you visit here you will need to drive to most places. Lots to do here. My advice if you don't know the area is to Google map the places before you set off. As most things are at least 15-1hour drive away. Very clean area, people are very respectful in the area. If you're looking to get away from city or town life this is a ideal place. We would definitely stay again.

The property

From the humble beginnings of a cowshed on the family farm, Jimmy's Place has been transformed into a romantic retreat for two perched in the rural, Norfolk village of Pulham Market.

Owing its name to the owner's grandad who originally built the farm, Jimmy's Place is a perfect East Anglia touring base, within reach of The Broads, Great Yarmouth, Thetford Forest Park and Suffolk.

Enjoy returning to the open-plan living space after an action-packed day to relax with your other half, beginning the prep for your evening meal in the excellent fitted kitchen, amply equipped for its size, you can find all you need here to rustle up delicious dishes, with the addition of a washing machine too.

Dine at the dining table and chairs for two perched by the window, or delight in an alfresco dining experience in your own private garden with a pretty bistro set, great for the summer months!

Back inside, you can pick up a book from the shelf and get lost in another world while sinking into the sofa, or flick on the TV and watch a favourite film together for a tranquil end to the day.

Head through to the lovely bedroom when it's time to rest, finding a king-size bed amidst an array of matching furniture, including a pretty dressing table, with an adjoining en-suite shower room for you to freshen up in.

Pulham Market is regarded as one of the prettiest villages in Norfolk and is home to a picture-perfect village green surrounded by thatched cottages, a medieval church and a centuries-old alehouse, with all this just a few minutes' walk from Jimmy's Place.

The surrounding area is great for countryside walks with other popular walking spots within easy reach by car, including the famous Norfolk Broads, with opportunities for walking, cycling and even kayaking and canoeing along the waterways.

Find adventure westwards over in Thetford Forest Park where you can visit Grime's Graves Prehistoric Flint Mine, Go Ape Thetford Treetop Challenge, and High Lodge which is home to three cycling trails, four walking trails, Forest Segway and archery.

Visit the amazing World Horse Welfare Hall Farm and meet the beautiful horses taking residence here, with around 120 horses cared for at any one time, you can walk around the farm and afterwards enjoy a treat at the on-site coffee shop.

Other attractions nearby include Banham Zoo, Earsham Wetland Centre, The Norfolk Tank Museum and Camel Park Oasis.

Pay a visit to the city of Norwich to discover an array of attractions and heritage from Norwich Cathedral, Norwich Castle and Cow Tower, to the Plantation Garden and Whitlingham Country Park, alongside a fabulous selection of bars and pubs, shops and boutiques, and cafés and restaurants!

Relish a romantic retreat with your other half at Jimmy's Place in this beautiful area of Norfolk.
