Farmhouse | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 9
Walnut Farm House is a substantial flint walled house outside the very quiet hamlet of Waxham. The house is full of light and plenty of space with 3 large rooms downstairs and a huge, well fitted kitchen with breakfast bar. Upstairs there are 2 double bedrooms, one ensuite, 2 twin bedrooms and 1 single bedroom. There is a family bathroom upstairs and a well fitted shower room downstairs. Outside there is a fully enclosed garden with lawns and seating and mature planting. This is an ideal house for a family holiday - loads of room for everybody, quiet sandy beaches just minutes away and yet near enough to Norwich and Great Yarmouth for easy days out. There is a very small seaside resort at Sea Palling, just minutes away. One of only 4 beaches to be awarded the coveted Blue Flag status in 2013.
The house has its own 1.5 mile dog walk on private farmland, an easy walk that runs along part of the local river. Dogs are very welcome at Walnut Farmhouse - free of charge - and we provide bowls, a dog bed, home made dog biscuits and other the fully enclosed garden means that they and children can use the garden safely. The beaches are all sandy and dog friendly and very little in the way of livestock and a mostly flat landscape means that local walks are so easy. Many of the pubs and cafes are dog friendly too.
If you are a photographer or birdwatcher there are a huge number of opportunities and the beach at nearby Horsey is famous for its colony of breeding seals. If you want to fish or take a boat out there are so many places nearby on the famous Norfolk Broads. The stunning North Norfolk Coast is easily accessible for a day trip and bikes can be hired from nearby Waxham Barns for exploring the area locally.

The East Anglia region
Whether you are interested in history, wildlife, military museums, steam railways, walking, bird and wildlife watching, photography, fishing, sailing or just relaxing there is something for everyone here in Norfolk. This part of Norfolk is quiet but has lots to offer. There are many attractions for children from the bright lights of Great Yarmouth with its pier and funfair to Cromer with its popular crab fishing pier. The area is great for walking, cycling and is on the doorstep of the Broads National Park with the great choice of boating and canoeing opportunties plus fishing and sailing. The fabulous Bewilderwood, the Broads centre of Wroxham, the internationally famous East Ruston Old Vicarage Gardens and many National Trust properties are all with very easy travelling distances. The city of Norwich is fantastic for shopping, culture, history and entertainment.
Sea Palling has a beautiful sandy beach which has been awarded the Blue Flag award for several years, great for families and those liking water sports. A walk along the beach towards Waxham and Horsey could well be rewarded with a sighting of the seals. There are 2 pubs a fish and chip shop, cafes, amusement arcade, childrens park and a Post Office with general store at Sea Palling - a useful sort of place!
Nearby you will also find the famous Waxham Barn with a cafe in one of the wings which serves homemade food and Horsey Wind Pump with it's stunning views over the coast and broadland landscape and boat trips on offer.
The Market town of Stalham is only 4 miles away and Wroxham only 12 miles. Cromer and Great Yarmouth are about 15 miles and Norwich 20 miles. There is a good choice of nice pubs and restaurants in the local area to suit all tastes.

"Spacious with everything needed for a large group"
This is a very nice big house with five bedrooms (2 double, 2 twin, 1 single) and two bathrooms plus an ensuite to one of the double bedrooms. There is lots of space downstairs with a kitchen, dining room, and three sitting rooms (one joined on to the main one). There is also a large enclosed garden and plenty of parking. The owners could not have been more helpful and were very friendly. One minor gripe is that the wifi connection was unreliable although this meant that the two teenagers in our group could not sit on their phones all night!

"Large, beautiful house, in peaceful spot close to many attractions and beaches"
Walnut Farm is spacious inside and out, very well equipped, clean and bright. The owner has added all the personal touches to make it feel like a home from home. Ideal house for children, babies and teenagers! Rachel, the owner has been v helpful and myself and extended family most definitely rate the house, location and hospitality 5 Star. Sea Palling has a long, quiet beautiful beach and small village. We will be back, but know as soon as other holiday makers find this place, that we may have trouble booking!
