Pond Farm House Bircham

Sleeps 13, from £1175 to £2795 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.
