  • "The house was great."

    Couple of ideas for future guests: Metal brush to clean bbq with BBQ tongs Fan for top floor rooms as they get hot and one doesn’t have an opening window Otherwise we loved the homely feel, space and lush garden.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay over Christmas."

    The house was very spacious and homely, just right for our three generations. The bedrooms were all spacious with very comfortable beds. The kitchen was well equipped, apart from scales and a mixer which my wife needed to do the Christmas baking but we soon sorted that. The owner, Pam was on hand to sort out any minor issues we had, which was very reassuring. The grandchildren loved the library because it was quiet, with lots of books to learn thing! They were sad to leave.

The property

Dereham 3.7 miles.

Nestled in Norfolk’s countryside in Wendling near the quaint town of Dereham is The Firs.

This beautifully-presented large, whitewashed holiday home boasts plenty of off-road parking, a spacious, private garden with furniture, barbecue and swing, a library and conservatory and welcomes up to fourteen guests and two well-behaved canine companions; all making it the perfect setting a getaway for the whole family in Norfolk.

After a busy day exploring the coast or surrounding towns, snuggle up in the homely sitting room and flick on the Smart TV and browse the array of films available; when your film is finished head into the fully-equipped kitchen diner and help the chef of your group rustle up a tasty meal.

Enjoy this together at a spacious dining room in the conservatory or indulge in an alfresco affair at the outdoor dining table.

If the sun is shining, why not have a barbecue?

While the evening away and savour being surrounded by the whole family before retiring upstairs where four king-size rooms, one of which boasts an en-suite bathroom, and two fun twin rooms await; all are serviced by a bathroom and sleek shower room as well as a cloakroom.

The Firs lies near the town of Dereham home to a myriad of bars and pubs including The Bull, The Cherry Tree and The Red Lion, stop here to refuel before exploring Bishop Bonner’s Cottage Museum and Dereham Windmill.

You could also venture to Brancaster Beach or Holkham Beach which rests in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and explore the sandy coast or head to the vibrant city of Norwich where you can immerse yourself in local history at the Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell or Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery.

Norwich is also home to an array of shops with something for everything, the perfect place to pick up a souvenir for those back home.

The Firs is perfectly located for those looking to explore Norfolk.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £750.

About the location


Fakenham 12 miles; Norwich 18 miles; King’s Lynn 27 miles.

Just a stone’s throw from the A47, located in central Norfolk, is the popular market town of Dereham (known locally as East Dereham) with a heritage dating back to Saxon times. Today Dereham enjoys excellent local amenities, which include Bishop Bonner’s Cottage Museum, the magnificent 13th-century church of St Nicholas, along with a wide selection of high street shops. On the edge of Dereham you can enjoy a journey on East Anglia’s longest heritage railway - the Mid Norfolk Railway, with steam and diesel trains to choose from. Just outside Dereham you can step back in time with a visit to Gressenhall Rural Life Museum and discover what traditional country life was like in Norfolk. At North Elmham, visit the ruins of a Saxon cathedral and on the outskirts of Fakenham, visit Pensthorpe, a bird lover's paradise and host of BBC Springwatch. Within easy travelling distance from Dereham you can explore Thetford Forest, the village of Sandringham which boasts Sandringham House, the cathedral city of Norwich and the historic maritime town of King’s Lynn. Spend a day or two visiting Norfolk’s wonderful varied coastline, offering both sandy and shingle beaches, traditional seaside towns with entertainment, quaint coastal villages with pretty flint cottages and fishing harbours dotted with sailing boats. A fantastic part of Norfolk to visit at any time of the year.
