  • "The farmhouse was beautifully decorated, very well equipped and in a very tranquil location."

    I feel that a check-in time of 1700 hours is way too late, (although we were actually able to enter the property at 1610 hours). Similarly the check-out time on online notifications was 0900 hours, but the in house information sheet stated check-out at 1000 hours, which was more reasonable. I also think owners should flag up if any part of the access to the property is along a single track road, just so that we can be aware.

    The house was perfect for us, lots of space , well equipped and beautifully clean throughout. Lovely garden for the 3 year old to run about in and a good table and chairs to enjoy the sunshine . It is in a lovely location overlooking countryside and very peaceful and quiet . We had a warm welcome and a delicious homemade cake on our arrival which was very much appreciated. We would definately recommend this lovely house for a holiday . Jane Nott and family

  • "What a really nice place spotlessly clean with all you need for your stay."

    Pleasantly surprised to find additional bathroom on ground floor that was not listed making this a 3 bathroom property. It is set in a peaceful location with great views over open countryside towards Great Yarmouth.

  • "Stunning location and amazing property decorated to extremely high standard."

    Attention to detail with everything at hand that you could possibly require. Karen had made a cake to welcome us and it was most appreciated after a long seven hours journey in pouring rain. One of the most relaxing holidays I have ever had. Just being able to sit out on the patio watching the horses, listening to the birds and watching the swans and heron, absolute bliss. Highly recommend this property and hope to come back some time soon

  • "We had a fabulous family break at West Farm which is well situated for exploring the Broads and day trips into Caister and Gt."

    Yarmouth. There are a number of good places to eat nearby. The accommodation itself is amazing and extremely comfortable. It was sparkling clean and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The owners were very helpful indeed. We have no hesitation in recommending West Lodge and hope to return there ourselves.

The property

Tucked away down a quiet country lane, West Farm is a recently renovated farmhouse that has been redesigned with gatherings for family & friends in mind.

It’s unique rural spot allows guests to enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful part of Norfolk, on the edge of the Broads National Park.

West Farm enjoys far reaching views out across the tranquil Norfolk landscape.

Guests can watch wildlife from the window over breakfast or step out of the door onto quiet country lanes and footpaths for walks in the local area.

Recently extended, the spacious farmhouse has been newly appointed and renovated for modern open plan living.

Upstairs there is space for 8 guests, in two double and two twin bedrooms, as well as two bathrooms.

There is plentiful parking and extensive outdoor space for guests’ private use, including use of a BBQ and indoor storage for bikes and buggies. The ground floor living space is presented in an open plan style.

The newly fitted kitchen is the heart of the house.

It is well equipped for cooking and feeding large parties, with a modern electric range double oven and a large central island, allowing the cooks to engage with the rest of the guests in the adjoining sitting and dining areas.

The farmhouse table can comfortably seat everyone for large gatherings or you can move through into the spacious living room to sit and soak up the uninterrupted country views or watch the smart TV – as your preference dictates!

Patio doors open out from the living room onto a neat patio and lawn area, which in turn leads onto a very large wilderness garden.

On the first floor there are two generously sized double bedrooms, each with a king size bed and TV.

There are 2 twin bedrooms, one with a large south facing window providing views out across farmland, while the second twin room has a cosier feel, still with two full sized single beds.

This twin room has two doors and when one is closed it allows for the first floor to become two separate spaces, each accessed by its own staircase, providing more privacy if required.

A cot and highchair are available if needed and stair gates can be fitted as required.

There are two family sized bathrooms on the first floor; one with a roll top bath along with a shower.

The utility/boot-room downstairs has a dishwasher and washing machine, as well as plenty of space to store coats and muddy boots.

The housekeeper and owners live a short walk from the farmhouse and are on hand to assist in making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

The coastal village of Caister-on-Sea is only a short drive away, where you’ll find a variety of local amenities, including bakery, butchers, pubs, restaurants and supermarkets.

Caister-on-Sea has miles of beautiful sandy beaches and dunes to explore, and is home to the renowned Caister Lifeboat Station.

Other nearby attractions include Caister Castle and Motor Museum, Great Yarmouth Racecourse, Broads day boat hire and the lively seaside town of Great Yarmouth, where you’ll find the Sea Life Aquarium, the Pleasure Beach and the Hippodrome Circus.

Or travel slightly further afield to enjoy great days out at BeWILDerwood, Norwich Castle Museum, Sandringham Estate or Africa Alive!

Settled on the east coast of Norfolk rests the seaside town of Caister-on-Sea, just north of Great Yarmouth. Famed as one of the oldest towns in the country, Caister-on-Sea boasts a history dating back to to the Roman times, taking its name from the Anglo-Saxon word 'ceaster' meaning 'Roman fort', in commemoration of the fort built in 200 CE as a base for Roman troops.

The historic docks of Lowestoft can be found slightly further afield, whilst thrills can be expected with a visit to Pleasurewood Hills theme park. The beautiful Norfolk Broads are within easy reach, where you can explore pretty villages, heritage houses, delightful gardens, river walks and boats trips.
