This beautiful, traditionally built Norfolk Flint house, dates back to the 1600's, with parts of the home having been extended since. This used to serve as part of the neighbouring Manor House at Lynford Hall. The hay-loft is still visible now where the horses were bought in whilst their owners sought rest in the public house next-door!
Our home is very well equipped as we want our visitors to experience a home-from-home- holiday. Once you enter the home, into a large airy hallway (where there's plenty of space for the wellies and walking boots!), you have direct access to the whole ground floor. The living room, to the right, is cosy and inviting with sofa, recliners and large seats, a wide-screen TV with freeview and DVD player. We have also left a broad selection of DVDs for any film lovers. The traditional, spacious and well-equipped kitchen, includes range cooker, fridge freezer, microwave and all utensils. This is a social space as, with all older homes, the kitchen was the hub of the house and this is echoed with a dining table being available here also. The galley of the kitchen leads to a separate WC and hand basin. The galley also ends with the backdoor to the main garden, which is very unique.
There is a large dining room separate to the dining area in kitchen, where the table can be extended for parties of 8 easily for a more formal or grand meal. There is a door here through to a room, originally the butchers room! This is a large room that has been used over time for storage and (whilst we are aware is in need of decorating) doubles as a playroom for children and stores the all important garden chairs, beach chairs and windbreakers. There is a set of stairs here which gives access to the attic conversion. This space is not open for visitors yet.
The first Double bedroom is also downstairs, which has been very useful for our more elderly members of the family who are not overly keen to make the stairs after a long day in the garden ! This room has a brand-new double bed and bedding and houses an antique bookcase, built into the walls.
The first floor is accessed by the main staircase in the hall. Just before you get to the first floor, there is a utility room on your left. In here we have provided a new washing machine, a huge front loading tumble dryer, ironing board, iron, drying rails and rack. This has proven very useful over time as muddy autumn walks and summer splashing in the sea can become rather messier than at first thought!
The huge main bathroom is then directly on your left as you come to the first floor. This is entered via two steps. There is a large walk-in shower, WC, basin, vanity units, shaving plug and an extra large bath- ultimate for those long soaks after a long hike.
The twin bedroom is fully furnished with two full sized single beds, one of which has been fitted with a Tempur mattress. There are a further two mattresses under these beds which can be used for other guests if requested. A large wardrobe and chest of drawers is also available with this room.
The 3rd bedroom, further down the hall, is a double room. This is a very comfortable bed with bedside tables and an antique wardrobe (many of our younger visitors say it reminds them of the wardrobe in Narnia!).
Our largest bedroom, for which you have two steps into, houses a Super-King bed, which is incredibly comfortable. There are also two large chest of drawers and a double cupboard in here for your stay. There is also a large TV in here, a far cry from the flat screen however!
We also have available a travel cot, which can be used for your duration, and a cot-bed with mattress and all bedding which can be made ready for your arrival (for a small extra charge and if requested in advance).
There is adequate parking outside the house for two large cars in a private bay area and a further space further up the private road that runs alongside our land. This space is grassed and we request that people are aware of how water logged this can become after heavy rains. There is also ample parking in the village alongside the green outside our home.
The garden is unique, as previously stated, due to the nature of how the surrounding area has changed over time. Our generous garden is completely private and has the benefit of not being overlooked by a soul. The garden has many different areas including a large expanse of lawn, which always catches the sun more shady areas under the mature trees. There is a courtyard with a comfortable bench for those morning coffees or evening drinks and, with comfortable garden chairs that can be taken from storage, many a relaxing day can be had just in the garden area alone. There is a side garden to the property too.
The home has been much loved for so many years and has a unique character and aged charm which we are sure our visitors will love.
