Valley Farmhouse – Luxury holiday cottage Gunthorpe, North Norfolk
Valley Farmhouse is a Grade II listed farmhouse set within seven acres of grounds in the village of Gunthorpe, one of the prettiest villages in North Norfolk. Totally refurbished in 2018, this stunning property offers privacy, luxurious accommodation and easy access to world-class beaches.
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 log 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.
