This detached property has lots of space to relax in, both inside and out. The 50 private acres that surround the building are beautifully designed and maintained, and hold some hidden gems, including a large hot tub, sauna, a flood lit tennis court, a large BBQ, fire pit, a summer house gazebo and a croquet lawn, along with garden games.

Inside you will also find a cellar bar that has been designed to evoke a 1920s ambiance, featuring soft lantern lights, a full bar, and stone infrastructure, along with an elegant dining room and living room, and a large well-equipped kitchen and gym. All but one of the sumptuous bedrooms enjoy their own private bathroom and every care has been taken by the owner’s to ensure that guests have a discrete, restful and enjoyable stay.

Located on the east coast of England, facing Europe across the North Sea, Norfolk is one of the UK's most rural counties, with over forty percent of its population living in just four towns – Norwich, Great Yarmouth, King's Lynn and Thetford. Adjacent to The Wash, in whose mud the medieval King John famously lost the Crown Jewels in 1216, Norfolk's geography is that of low plains or “fens”, which makes it along with neighbouring Suffolk feel more like northern countries of European mainland (Belgium and Holland) than the rest of England which is predominantly hilly.

In a similar way to that of the “low countries”, erosion and land reclamation have changed the coastline over the centuries, so that several towns (King's Lynn, for instance) which were once on the coast are now to be found several miles inland! The whole set-up makes for some very interesting topography as well as history and Norfolk is, for this reason, an interesting county to visit, almost as if it was a different country altogether!

East of England

This region includes the ceremonial counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. With a rich heritage there is much to see and do to suit all ages. The royal residency of Sandringham Estate is a must see and other historical points of interest include Castle Rising, Sutton Hoo and Somerleyton Hall. The medieval cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich are not to be missed and there are lots of pretty market towns and idyllic seaside resorts to choose from for a day trip. Alternatively for a slower paced holiday you may wish to visit The Broads or Thetford Forest, these areas are particularly popular for boating and spotting birdlife.
