Totally refurbished in 2018, this stunning property offers privacy, luxurious accommodation and easy access to world-class beaches. Heritage Norfolk dates Valley Farmhouse to the late 16th century, with a late 17th century stair tower, and the property oozes old world characterful charm and includes many original features. Expect vaulted ceilings, uneven floors, extra wide floor boards, thick heavy doors, stone and pamment floors, inglenook fireplaces along with a bread oven. Add a feeling of opulent grandeur and combine that with modern day comforts throughout. Interiors have been thoughtfully and stylishly designed using rich colours and beautiful fabrics that enhance the property's age and bring it back to life. Bespoke fittings and furniture, fabulous Swedish light fittings, vast bedrooms with sumptuous beds with Tempur mattresses and fine bedding, and beautiful bathroom suites with Burt & May tiling. Extra touches include Bluetooth Roberts radios, a stocked drinks cabinet with honesty box and hand crafted South African Wonki Ware dinnerware. On the ground floor you will find a large well-equipped kitchen with both oil and electric Aga cooking options, a huge American-style fridge/freezer and marble topped island. From here walk straight into a sunny dining conservatory, fully glazed with Crittall windows and double doors that lead out to the terrace overlooking the pond. Off to the side of the kitchen is a spacious boot/utility room. The dining hall is very grand with a wood burning stove and a bespoke 3m dining table that cries out for long dinners, lazy lunches and private catering (please enquire for recommendations). Afterwards retire to the warmly atmospheric sitting room where there is a 65' television and sublime velvet sofas to sink into. The five bedrooms spread over two floors and each one enjoys an individual boutique theme and wonderful views across the gardens. No need to queue for the bathroom with two en-suites, two family bathrooms, one bedroom has a bath within the room, plus there's a cloakroom on the ground floor. The grounds that surround Valley Farmhouse are made up of meadows, gardens, an orchard and include a pond as well as a lake and small stream. There are different seating areas within the garden that enjoy lovely views across open farmland and to St Mary's striking medieval church in the distance. Valley Farmhouse is an extra special and particularly romantic Norfolk hideaway that will appeal to holidaymakers who enjoy the finer things in life; may want to celebrate a special event; or just enjoy a chill-out holiday with friends and family. Outside of the main school holidays, Valley Farmhouse offers flexible stays, with a minimum of three nights. NB: Small children and dogs must be supervised at all times when in the garden. Neither the pond nor the lake are safe for swimming. Additional Information Two well-behaved dogs are welcome (small additional charge). The house has many different levels, and some uneven floors. Travel cot and high chairs available. Please request on booking. WiFi is available but please note that this is a rural area, therefore speeds may be slower than you are used to and the signal can be intermittent. There is no mobile reception but a landline is provided for reasonable use by guests.More
