From the owner

Nestling in the big skies of the gentle Norfolk countryside just 4 miles south of Downham Market, the Coach House with unique wood-fired hot tub is a luxurious country bolthole perfect for families, children and groups of friends. We heartily welcome hens and girl's weekends and have lots of ideas to help! Children love the playhouse, mini tractors and horses and ponies on site. Well-located, the house is only a stone's throw from great links to the coast, The Queens' Royal Sandringham Estate, Ely, Cambridge and King's Lynn. Nearby is Thetford Forest with its many fantastic activities including GoApe Treetop Adventure and 30 miles of beautiful cycle tracks and walks through the pine forest. Excellent coarse fishing is available in the village (Dent's Fisheries), Golf 2 miles away at Ryston Park. The Little Retreat Spa is just up the road, as is Church Farm children's attraction and The Hare Arms - an award winning gastro-pub. There is a friendly butcher and general store in the village, as well as a farm shop (Dent's) with cafe and Sunday Carvery. The very popular Arbuckles American Diner (3 miles away) are happy to deliver as are 'The Little Chippy'..or you can book our in-house Thai Chef to cook for you in the house. Beauty treatments are available, we also offer Archery on site for 2 hours of fun and games with straw targets.

There are countryside walks from the door and the driveway leads onto a Norfolk Green Lane for cycling. Downham Market Station (4 miles) has a direct 90 minute link to London's King's Cross.

The magnificent house with countryside views sits at the end of its own sweeping driveway on a private country estate, on the outskirts of the riverside village of Hilgay. Completely private and self-contained and the only holiday cottage on site. The wealth of features and facilities on site include, for your children, extensive garden space with a playhouse and large enclosed play paddock. A maid service is available.

Guests are welcomed with homemade scones and jam. The popular Celebration Package offers a handmade triple layer cake with chocolate-dipped fruit and bubbly. We'll also hang up yards of beautiful bunting. This can all be arranged as a surprise on arrival!

The property is a former Georgian Coach House and stables conversion appointed to luxury 5 star hotel standard, with 5 bedrooms (one downstairs), 4 bathrooms (2 en suite), cosy underfloor heating and a wood burner. Bedrooms have flexible sleeping (double or twin) to suit. Fluffy bathrobes for adults and children, luxury linens, towels and Arran Aromatics toiletries included. Baby kit is available, with steriliser and bottle warmers, blender, 2 cots, changing mat, toys, highchair, stairgate, children's utensils and bowls as well as black-out blinds at the windows. In the warmer months the bedrooms all have fans.

There is a very well-equipped open-plan farmhouse kitchen with 4 ovens as well as dining room, utility room and morning room. The sitting room has a 50" cinema TV with surround sound and blu-ray player, wood burner, books, games, toys, a giant magnetic chalkboard, magazines and Dvd's. Free BT Business WiFi inclusive.

French doors lead out to an additional spacious courtyard area including wood-fired hot tub, BBQ, character olive tree, climbing roses and grape vines - perfect for al fresco dining with family and friends. This is south-facing with festoon lighting looped around the trees for relaxing evenings. Extensive private gardens include flower borders and mature oak trees, one of which is believed to be over 300 years old. The garden has an original 'Martin Pigg' tree sculpture and stunning Norfolk country views.

The Coach House is an owner-run and managed holiday home with the real 'wow factor'.
