West Farm - Holiday Cottage Near Norfolk Broads
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.
