Home Farm House is set in 2 acres of grounds in the small village of Suffield Common. The house has been completely renovated to create a beautiful family home. Every room has quality furnishings and fittings. There are oak beamed ceilings throughout and the flooring is either limestone flags or oak boards. The kitchen and utility have modern appliances that integrate into the traditional style, all three reception rooms have comfy sofas and either an open fire or wood burning stove. The property is on a seldom used lane, benefits from extensive gardens and has many characterful features; including large fireplaces, an antique bread oven, ships beams and 15th century beams, a green oak beamed loft, 18” thick walls in many rooms, original art work, contemporary and antique furniture. I have complemented these with modern lighting and bathroom fittings. The house is light, bright and breezy in summer and cosy and warm in winter. Its space and layout lend itself to family entertaining.

Outside:
Home Farm House has wonderful aspects, although we have neighbours the house is not overlooked and is very private being set well back from the lane. It has 2 acres of grounds, 1 acre of lawns, 1 acre of paddock, a stream with a bridge and a pond. Young children should be supervised as it is up to 2 metres deep. The front lawn is a boules, hoopla or footie kick around space. In season you can dine alfresco in the courtyard where there is garden furniture, gas BBQ, swing seat, parasol and a hammock. Out of season these are not available for use. Picnic tableware, blankets, chiller bags, cushions and games are provided for your enjoyment in the garden. There is a summer / wendy house with some additional garden seating and games but this is not maintained by the house keeper and play in there should be supervised. Our gardener comes weekly on Friday to keep things tidy.
Local interest and activities:
There are excellent local pubs and restaurants. I highly recommend The Gunton Arms in the Gunton deer park. In addition there are the Erpingham Arms, Saracens Head, The Crown at Banningham, The Walpole Arms and Black Boys in Aylsham. I provide a 'recommended' list with your joining instructions. There are many walks and cycle routes from the house and many more that can be reached by car. I have comprehensive details of local attractions, activities and hostelries in the house. For example, the Weavers Way, Bure Valley walk, Peddars Way/North Norfolk Coast Path, the Paston Way (coastal), Wherryman's Way around the Broads and Barton Broad walk. Use our local OS maps to find them. A short drive or cycle ride away is the Southrepps Common Nature Reserve which comprises 12.4 hectares of woodland, it is a site of special scientific interest and conservation status. A car park and 800 metre boardwalk provides easy access and The Vernon Arms is nearby for refreshment. We are excellently placed for cyclists. Norfolk was the first county in Britain to introduce Quiet Lanes for walking and cycling. They are almost on our doorstep covering 36 miles and occupying a triangle from Cromer to Bacton and inland to North Walsham, all easily and safely accessible from the front door for cyclists of all abilities. The Quiet Lanes link with the Paston Way, Bacton Woods and the Coast Cycleway. I have cycling maps and information at the house. Broadland Cycle Hire is located in the car park at Bewilderwood, 13 miles away, where you can hire bikes, tandems, children’s cycles, baby seats and tag-alongs. There are several cycle rides starting from there and they have route maps. For steam trains the Bure Valley Railway starts at Aylsham, The ‘Poppy Line’ at Sheringham. There are many day boat hires on the Broads and several National Trust houses and gardens nearby, Blickling and Felbrigg Halls being the closest. For the younger members of your group Strikers is 6 lane 10 pin bowling alley with arcade games and a bar 3 miles away and the Victory swimming pool and gym is in North Walsham. For anglers there are many local lakes, Felmingham Mill Lakes in walking distance and Blickling lake the most spectacular. The VisitNorthNorfolk website is an excellent source of information and things to do.

Mundesley beach is the easiest to get to, 7 miles away, a Blue Flag Award sandy beach, with lifeguard in season and easy parking. Trimingham is 6 miles. Overstrand is 7 miles away and is easily accessible by car, it is an attractive cliff-top village overlooking a sandy beach where you can buy fresh lobster and crab in season. Cromer's sandy beach and it’s pier is 8 miles, Sea Palling for water sports 15 miles, Blakeney for seal viewing 18 miles. The Broads are 7 miles away for day boats, canoes, kayaks and sailing.

Fabulous location, beautiful big property for a New Year gathering with friends!


By Louise on 02-Jan-2018

Hi Collette! We meant to write in the visitors book before we left, but I totally forgot!

We had a fabulous stay in the house! It is a beautiful property and it was such a pleasure to find a kitchen so well equipped, not to mention huge! It was the perfect setting for a New Year’s Eve get together with our friends and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it!

The place was spacious for the little ones to spread out in the entrance lounge with their toys. We didn’t even use the snug at the end of the house! The bedrooms were a great size, lovely and airy! The location was great too and we took a steam train ride from Sheringham which the little ones loved, a walk and play on the beach in Cromer and dinner at the Crown on NYE. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful property and we’ll definitely recommend you to our friends and family. Happy new year! Louise

Extremely well-appointed, spacious, lovely setting


By Steve on 29-Jun-2017

A group of 8 of us booked for a long weekend. Our first impressions were very positive, and increased during our stay. The house is very spacious with plenty of communal areas inside and out but with private spaces too. The excellent facilities meant we cooked some great meals together and enjoyed a BBQ in the courtyard. Everyone went away impressed with the set-up. Special thanks to the owner, Colette, who managed the process so smoothly and made our stay a good one.

Perfection!


By Margaret on 16-Apr-2017

We were looking for somewhere to celebrate my 70th birthday with our family and found the perfect house and location at Home Farm House. We were a party of 10 with an age range between 4 and 73 years old. The house never felt crowded, always the ideal spot for each one of us. The house and garden are beautiful and so well equipped -everything we needed was always available. All 10 of us were able to sit comfortably around the large kitchen table and enjoy wonderful meals together. The garden provided many interesting nooks and crannies for a Easter egg hunt and the courtyard was a superb place to barbecue locally sourced meat and fish. Days out were enjoyed on the beach at Overstrand, pottering around Cromer, walking in Sheringham Park and exploring Hickling and Ranworth Broads. We would highly recommend this beautiful house set in glorious surroundings for a relaxing multi-generation family holiday. As we were leaving, our youngest grandson, aged 4, said he would like to have stayed for 100 days - we all agreed!

An Absolute Gem


By Terry on 07-Oct-2016

We rented this property for a family away weekend to celebrate my 70th birthday. Three generations of the family were there and everyone loved the house. The accommodation offered is excellent, and all of the rooms are tastefully furnished and equipped to a high standard. The kitchen and dining area is exceptionally good and ideal as a gathering point and social hub for the party. There is also a spacious and attractive garden. The rural location is pleasing, although the narrow roads make for some interesting passing manoeuvres! We had a very good celebration dinner at the Crown in Banningham and a good walk along the beach from Overstrand to Cromer for lunch. The property is within easy reach of many of the attractive places which Norfolk offers and I would wholeheartedly recommend it.

Wonderful property in a beautiful rural location


By Lucy on 30-Sep-2016

I recently stayed at Home Farm House with my family for my parents' Golden Wedding Anniversary. It was a perfect property giving everyone (9 adults, 2 children and 2 babies) the space they needed to relax and enjoy the weekend. The large dining table was perfect for a celebratory meal and the kitchen was extremely well equipped. The bedrooms were clean, comfortable and very well furnished. We had a fabulous stay and were found the setting perfect for exploring the North Norfolk coast. Very handy having a Waitrose just a few minutes drive away too. Thank you for such a great stay and hopefully we'll visit again in the future.

A very special place


By Ken on 04-May-2016

This is an amazing (and very spacious) 5 bedroom property in a beautiful rural location. We stayed over the May Day Bank holiday weekend with our friends. We had five children in total, and we all absolutely loved the place. Every detail has been thought about, from the fully equipped kitchen with every accessory you can think of, to the outdoor toys in the summer house. The house itself has been lovingly extended and renovated, offering plenty of room and comfort even for a large group. It is an ideal base from which to explore this beautiful part of the world (we enjoyed taking the steam train from nearby Aylsham to Wroxham, and then cruising the Broads, as well as a trip to the beach). The owner is lovely: when we managed to leave behind a special teddy bear, she arranged to have it posted to us. All in all, 5 stars on every level!

The Perfect Easter Weekend !


By Barry on 06-Apr-2016

We stayed at Home Farm house over the Easter weekend with friends and family and I could probably say “just perfect” …. and simply stop there; because that’s exactly what it was. From the administration to the house and gardens everything was wonderful.

Home farm is a very large 5 bedroom farm house near North Walsham. It has been very sympathetically renovated to keep the charm of an old farm house but provide all the mod cons you would expect from a quality short let. It’s very clean and well equipped, especially the kitchen which has every cooking utensil you could ever want, and more!

All the rooms were very spacious and tastefully decorated.

We had unusually good Easter weather and so the lovely gardens provided a perfect setting for an Easter egg hunt for the younger children.

Many thanks to Colette and her team for making it a perfect Easter.

Perfect weekend away in Norfolk


By Rob on 17-Nov-2015

What a great weekend!

The house is extremely spacious and well decorated and was perfectly clean and tidy when we arrived (there was even a welcoming bottle of wine!)

The owners have managed renovated the property brilliantly and it retains all of the warm and homely country feel, whilst having all the modern comforts you could ask for.

The kitchen is huge, modern and very well equipped if you want to cook at home or there's always the excellent food at the Gunton Arms just 10 minutes drive away.

Thanks very much Colette and we will definitely be coming back!

A wonderful comfortable large country house


By Roger on 21-Sep-2015

We (6 pensioners) enjoyed our stay at Home Farm House immensely. The bedrooms were all very comfy and fitted our needs well. Although we didn't cook in at all we enjoyed the space of the kitchen/dining area and also the cosy sitting rooms. Exploring north Norfolk from this base was lovely and we found some fantastic eating places everywhere we went. We would thoroughly recommend this house for any kind of family/friends reunion.

Perfect setting for a family holiday


By Rebecca on 21-Sep-2015

Our party of 10 people, ranging in ages from 3 to mid-60s, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Home Farm House. The setting is both beautiful, with gardens to the front and rear which were perfect for the children to explore, and peaceful. We found the location to be ideal for visiting several local attractions, including the sandy beach at Mundesley, Blickling Hall, the Broads and the Bure Valley Steam Railway. We also enjoyed visiting the follies, giant question mark and wild gardens of the nearby Field of Dreams. The house itself is spacious - even with ten people it never felt cramped - and the bedrooms are large enough to comfortably accommodate ten people. The kitchen is very well equipped, airy and light and the reception rooms cosy and relaxing. The owner was friendly and helpful throughout. I would certainly recommend this property to family groups seeking a comfortable, spacious and quiet holiday home.

Photos don't do it justice


By Anna on 11-Jun-2015

A really beautiful house, very well appointed and huge! Even with 10 people in there it never felt crowded and was perfect for big family meals. Lovely part of the UK to explore - Bewilderwood for the kids, the broads and the coast - plenty for everyone.

Beautiful home from home


By James on 31-May-2015

About ten minutes after we arrived my wife suggested that we should come back for two weeks in the summer. And then two weeks in the winter. We took a long weekend there with my brother and his family and in the few days we were there it became a real home from home. It's furnished to a high standard and has been renovated with the care one takes of your own home, rather than a holiday let. It's equipped with everything you could possibly imagine and really well looked after. It's furnished to a high standard throughout and has bags of charm. Whether you're looking for a tranquil summer retreat or a winter bolthole with friends and family - this is the house you should pick. You shall not be disappointed.

Beautiful house, a real home from home


By Vanessa on 30-May-2015

We just spent five days here celebrating my husband's 40th and two other family birthdays. The house is amazing, wonderfully furnished and extremely comfortable. It was spotlessly clean and the gardens were very well kept and the children had a great time playing outside. We had ages ranging from 4 to 68 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay. It is a great base for exploring North Norfolk and we hope to return!

Exceptionally Wonderful


By Steph on 11-May-2015

A group of us stayed at the house for the Bank holiday weekend to celebrate my husband's and our friend's Birthdays.

May I say, I am not easily impressed but this house blew me away the minute I arrived in the driveway. It is, without exception, the best rental house I have every stayed in (and I have stayed in quite a few).

Everything has been so well thought out, it is beautifully furnished and so very welcoming.

I am a keen cook and have never experienced such an extensive kitchen, I took various things with me but everything was there.

We all fell in love with the house and just can't wait to return, it is a real gem.

If you have a large family or a group of good friends please do book it, you won't regret it. Thank you so much for everything Colette.

wonderful family reunion


By Paul on 18-Apr-2015

We have a very international family, living around the world, and decided on coming back to the UK for a reunion. Home Farm was the ideal location for us, and the setting was idyllic.

The property has been extremely well furnished, and the kitchen is phenomenal. It has also been very well equipped with everything you could need. Its an extremely comfortable setting for a large group, with so many bedrooms / bathrooms / reception rooms.

The grounds are beautiful and the kids loved running around in the garden. There are loads of stuff to do in the surrounding area if you want to get out and about, but we also enjoyed just relaxing in the house, and going for little walks.

Beware that mobile phone reception is poor (we didn't have any signal, but I guess it depends on the service provider you use), and the WIFI was extremely slow. But in a way, that can be an advantage if you want to get away from technology!

New Year


By Julia on 07-Jan-2015

We had a fantastic New Year stay at Home Farm. The cottage is fantastic- it has an extremely large kitchen/dining room that is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need! There are also 3 other reception rooms, so there is plenty of space for children to hang out in & so you are not on top of each other. The bedrooms upstairs do not disappoint & there are also plenty of bathrooms to accommodate a group of 10. We had a great stay & would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

A wonderful family Christmas


By K108 Suffolk on 03-Jan-2015

We have all thoroughly enjoyed a fantastic relaxing Christmas at Home Farm House. We came with high expectations and were not disappointed. As a party of ten we enjoyed the space the house offered but also the cosy feel in the lounge in front of the log burner. All rooms were comfortable but special mention must go to the superb kitchen/dining room. Never before have we stayed where the cupboards were stocked with everything you could wish for and the quantity of mugs, plates, cutlery was excellent. Ideally situated for visiting Cromer, Sheringham and the Thursford Christmas show. We loved the nature reserve behind the house. A beautiful house in a lovely setting, we didn't want to leave.

Lovely home for country break


By Finn London on 02-Feb-2014

We booked Colette's lovely farmhouse for a 5 day break just after New Year's with 6 adults and 2 young children. The house is extremely comfortable, spacious and well maintained. The furnishings & appliances are those of someone's home rather than a holiday house. There was plenty of space for our crew to spread out, especially with the 3(!) lounge areas, each with fire places.

Colette was extremely helpful & responsive for helping us with some minor queries during our stay. Would definitely recommended it for a family re-union/get together.
