Extra Amenities

Set on the Hole Farm Estate, winners of a National Conservation award, Orchard House is a great choice for those looking to explore the area from a picturesque and peaceful setting. Orchard House boasts views across the open countryside. It is furnished with a good mix of antiques and modern pieces and will appeal to those looking for something quirky with some really lovely touches.
There are lots of history associated with the site. In 1379, John Blakeneye, citizen and fishmonger of London, bought the manor of Hempstead, including the Hole Farmlands, from John de Stodeye, Lord Mayor of London, and by the mid 15th century, many of the farm buildings were built. Owned by the second Earl of Buckinghamshire in the mid 1700s, it later became part of the Blickling Estate. In 1884, the estate, now run by Lady Constance Lothian, did some major alterations and rebuilding at Hole Farm.

These improvements included both the repairing of all the buildings in the original farmyard and the creation of a cattle yard. In fact, the old walls for the cattle yard now provide the shelter for the lovely seasonal, outdoor, heated swimming pool.
The family who now own the property, have planted 60 acres of woodland and 8½ miles of hedges and the farm has won many conservation and forestry awards. The setting is just lovely as it’s nestled within the beautiful North Norfolk countryside. It’s a 15-minute drive to the stunning coastline where you will find yourself amongst beautiful sandy and shingle beaches, marsh habitats and picturesque quays. Take a trip to Cromer and walk along the Edwardian promenade or take a stroll along the pier.

Head to Blakeney for the Norfolk pursuit of gillie catching. Blickling Estate is just 15 minutes away, but don’t forget to find time to visit Holkham Hall and the Sandringham Estate too. History lovers will also enjoy a trip to the Thursford Military and Muckleburgh Steam collections museums, a trip on the North Norfolk Railway or a guided tour of Norwich Castle. Just 40 minutes away lies Wroxham, the gateway to the Norfolk Broads, where you can join a chartered tour or rent a day launch and watch the world drift by. With cycle routes and walks virtually from the front door, you will be delighted that you chose the Hole Farm Estate to return to for a great night’s sleep. Beach 7 miles.
