Once forming part of the historic Gunton Hall Estate, the grounds of Nursery Farm include eight acres of woodland that visitors are free to explore. The owners live in the grade two listed brick and flint thatched farmhouse close to the cottages. Each cottage has its own terraced garden area, perfect for relaxing on a warm summer evening.

This delightful corner of rural Norfolk is only five miles from the traditional seaside town of Cromer, famous for its delicious crabs and the end of the pier shows. Also within easy reach are the Norfolk Broads, the fascinating network of waterways where day boats are available for hire.

The area is ideal for cycling with many designated ‘quiet lanes’. From North Walsham is a cycle track along a disused railway line that gives a unique opportunity to explore unspoilt Norfolk with its abundance of wildlife. The more ambitious cyclist may like to attempt the full route into Norwich.

Easily accessible too, are the picturesque villages of the North Norfolk coast, much loved by sailors and offering a number of RSPB reserves, lovely coastal footpath walks and seal-watching trips. Good fishing and a choice of golf courses can be found within 5 miles.

Norfolk is very rich in terms of heritage with several National Trust properties to visit including nearby Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Hall.
