Pond Farm House Bircham

Sleeps 13, from £1175 to £2865 per week

Pond Farm House is a substantial 3-storey Norfolk flint and brick farmhouse overlooking a picturesque village pond, used as a much-loved second home. This is a great place to stay for large groups of family and friends, with plenty of living space in its spacious high-ceilinged rooms, including 6 bedrooms and 5 bath/shower rooms across the 3 floors. Downstairs there is a self-contained annexe, making it ideal for less able guests. Outside there is an attractive walled garden, with sunny spots for dining alfresco or to sit, and watch the wildlife on the pond. For anyone wishing to bring a horse with them, there is a 2 acre paddock available next to the house. It is only a short walk to the excellent King's Head pub/hotel, a village shop and children's playground. The beautiful sandy beaches at Brancaster, Thornham and Holkham may be reached within 15 minutes drive.

NOTE: Whilst the property sleeps 13, guests should be aware that this includes bunk beds which are full size but more suitable for children.

One well-behaved dog is welcome at Pond Farm House, we're sorry but only a female dog is allowed.

Guest Reviews

Thank you very much for the lovely stay in Pond Farm house, Norfolk it really was splendid we couldn't of wished for anything better, the house was much bigger than we thought it would be and it was really good having the annexe where our friends could be away from the children. As I had said it was our daughters 40 birthday and when she arrived her face was a picture she had no idea we would be there I shall remember it for a long time. We would definitely recommend this cottage we have been having holidays in Norfolk for the last 40 years and this was the best we would just love to return sometime again.

Bircham

Location

The village of Bircham lies on the border of the Sandringham Estate, about 7 miles from the north Norfolk coast and comprises of three parishes:- Great Bircham, Bircham Tofts and Bircham Newton. Great Bircham has an excellent village shop with a deli and a cafe, a church, St Mary's and the Kings Head Hotel with award winning restaurant. There is also a fully restored windmill, considered to be the only working windmill in this part of the county, where visitors can climb five floors up to the fan stage and on windy days, can see the sails and milling machinery turning and admire the view. The mill also has a bakery (delicious bread!), tea room, gift shop, small childrens' farm and cycle hire centre. Bircham Newton has a small, private trout fishing lake and the Church of All Saints, one of the smallest in the county, with no porch, few windows and Victorian box pews. Nelson's daughter Horatia married Philip Ward, who was the rector and brought up a large family at Church Farm. Bircham Tofts is recorded in the Domesday book as Stoftstan, referring to its stony soil and merged with Bircham Newton in 1719. The closest train station is at King's Lynn providing direct rail links to Cambridge and London.Bircham windmill
