2 Double rooms with bathroom and Breakfast Room Suite
This has been our family home for over 25 years and we would now like to share it with others. The accommodation would suit a couple or an individual who can enjoy the luxury double bedroom in your private area upstairs which includes a snug breakfast room. There is an additional double bedroom within this, if you would like to come with family or friends. Both are furnished with fine Egyptian cotton bedlinen and luxurious towels and a bathroom with a bath and shower. Breakfast is a personal affair - eating at your leisure (midday if you wish) - by helping yourself to a range of delights from traditional cereal to mixing your own muesli (add your own goodies nuts goji berries seeds etc), granola, fruits and yoghurt, then finish off with toast, marmalade and jams. However, you can indulge in a full English fry up which will be cooked for you until 10 am. The majority of the food is homemade and organic where possible. All dietary requirements are catered for - you just have to let us know.
Homemade cake or scones await you after your journey here and we offer a complimentary bottle of wine (colour of your choice) and a taste of homemade Norfolk chocolate to tempt you.
Once the weather warms up you are welcome to enjoy breakfast in our walled garden.
A well behaved dog is welcome too at a charge of pound;10.00 per night. We have a large walled garden where your pet can feel safe with our own dogs. Please contact me for further details.
Church Farmhouse still has traces of its 15th Century origins. It is built in brick and flint and has countless features giving glimpses of the changes it has undergone throughout the ages. It sits in an acre of garden where old apple and plum (not forgetting the large white mulberry) trees stand beside borders full of colour and interest. Through the gate there is a large striped lawn with a burgeoning veggy patch on one side, while chickens scratch way and lay their delicious eggs, on the other. Beyond, there is a grass tennis court and sweeping views of the countryside and our medieval church. There is parking off the street for a your car.
Plumstead is a remarkably peaceful village surrounded by farmland. It is just five miles from the striking Georgian town of Holt with its array of unique privately owned shops and restaurants. It also boasts a highly regarded Summer Festival at the end of July. North Norfolk is famous for its coastline with its fabled marshes that stretch from east to west. It is world renowned for birdlife with Cley just 20 minutes away. Beaches range from the traditional at Sheringham to the breathtaking expanses of sand and dunes at Wells and Holkham. For the more restless there is superb sea sailing at Blakeney and Morston or you may simply wish to take a trip to see the seals from either of these small harbours.
We are lucky enough to have no less than four outstanding National Trust "properties" Blickling Hall, Felbrigg Hall, Sheringham Park (the rhododendrons and azaleas are exquisite) and finally Blakeney Point.
For those who like to strike the little white ball you will be spoilt for choice for golf links, Sheringham being the pick. However, even the most seasoned campaigner, as the six foot putt is lined up for a half, may be startled by the sound of steam and the smell of smoke and ashes as a locomotive climbs the gradient on the North Norfolk Railway from Sheringham to Holt, offering spectacular views of the coast.
Nonetheless we urge you to resist these delights for part of your stay, leave the car and explore the enchanting paths that take you through wildflowers and woodland that radiate out of our village. If you are a stargazer you will be in for a treat as the night sky is strikingly free of manmade light.
If you would like to venture a little further afield we can lend you bikes so that you can meander down sleepy lanes and seek out our remarkable heritage of medieval churches.
In the event of cancellation within 7 days of the start of your booking payment in full is required.
A very warm and friendly welcome. So much care and thought paid to every detail to make our stay as comfortable as possible - lovely JK
Beautiful home from home and the best granola ever tasted. L & V
It really has been a special weekend - the children love Rosy and Teasel (the dogs!) and collecting eggs for breakfast J & P..
Spring in Norfolk. A perfect experience.
Ask the owner, Mary Lintott a question...
Don't forget to mention Glaven Valley when calling.
