There is much to love about this deceptively spacious, light and airy, detached, Norfolk flint house. Boasting two bathrooms and a separate downstairs lavatory, an Aga and a wood burner, this really is a great year-round choice for your coastal break. With a ground floor bedroom and en-suite bathroom it offers versatile accommodation that is perfect for families and couples alike. For those who like to cook, the owner has thoughtfully added a second conventional cooker to complement the Aga and there is a lovely space to dine together in the dining room, which is flooded with light and leads out on to the patio in the private enclosed garden. There is also a small table seating 2/3 in the kitchen as well as an armchair with side table.
Great (Old) Walsingham itself is considered by many to be one of the prettiest villages in the area, with local walks from the house to be enjoyed, including over the Siffkey ford at the bottom of Westgate, so much fun for the kids for paddling and Pooh sticks.
Further along the lane there is St Peter’s, built in 1320-1340 with its fine tracery nave windows. The other side of the lane there is a small wood and a large meadow with footpaths – a great place for an easy walk from and back to Orchard House. The village has a small Barns complex including an art gallery and a cafe/deli with home-made fare.
Little Walsingham, the larger part of the village, can be reached easily enough by foot from two directions as it is only a mile away. A famous and venerable place of pilgrimage, the Priory Gardens and Walsingham Abbey grounds are well worth a visit. There are two pubs, both serving food and a Farm Shop with a butchery, local fruit and vegetables and a deli serving pies and pastries. There is a separate bistro. Walsingham is only 4 miles from Wells-Next-the Sea, with its harbour and fine beaches running along to Holkham.
There is a supermarket in Wells and fish and chips at the quay, also crabbing is a rewarding activity for kids.
Holkham Hall is one of several Country Houses within easy reach of Walsingham and open to the public, the other two being the National Trust properties Blickling and Felbrigg. Further West the Houghton and Sandringham Estates are available. There is a collection of steam traction engines, fairground organs and rides at Thursford, just 4 miles away and a miniature steam train that runs from Little Walsingham to Wells.
Head East or West for more beaches, salt and clay mashes and rolling sand dunes and search out the many noted restaurants and activities and you will soon see why North Norfolk is so very popular and guests return year after year. Then you can return to lovely Orchard House for a glass of something in the garden or by the wood burner and be sure of a great night’s slee
