Bure Valley Farmhouses - Laurel Farm description

Set between the Broads and the North Norfolk coast, in a superb holiday location, in one of the most beautiful parts of Norfolk. A family home which has been lovingly renovated and converted, to form a spacious, attractive and comfortable house with the friendly and mellow atmosphere which only generations of family life can give to a building. It is furnished and equipped to comfortable standards and personally supervised by the caring owners. They have the beamed ceilings typical of the period, and farmhouse sitting-rooms with open fires. The Broads are within a few minutes’ drive, and at Wroxham, the ‘capital of the Broads’, daily boat hire is available to explore the famous waterways, whilst pausing at one of the many riverside inns, restaurants and cafés along the way. Norfolk’s coastline with soft sandy beaches is readily accessible, with traditional seaside resorts of Cromer and Sheringham, as well as coastal paths for bracing walks, whilst many fine NT properties abound in the area. Sheringham Park, with its many species of trees, shrubs and wild flowers offers waymarked walks ablaze with the colour of rhododendrons in spring, whilst Blickling Hall with Jacobean splendour hosts open air concerts and events. For a change of tempo, the city of Norwich – one of England’s finest shopping centres – also boasts a Norman cathedral and castle, theatres and museums. Appealing to children in particular, Banham Zoo, Wroxham Barns and Craft Centre, Dinosaur Adventure Park, West Runton Shire Horse Centre and the Splash and Victory swimming-pools (at Sheringham and North walsham) provide plentiful entertainment, whilst steam train enthusiasts will find the Poppyline Steam Railway, Bure Valley narrow gauge railway, and Thursford Steam Museum all worth a visit. Numerous bird sanctuaries, salt marshes and wildlife centres punctuate the region, and the quiet lanes and country tracks provide cyclists with ample opportunity to explore the area under their own steam. Part of the owners’ family farm for generations, this farmhouse is accessed via the farm drive, but is quite separate. The Weavers’ Way footpath passes through the village; enjoy beautiful walks in the Upper Bure Valley and visit Blickling Hall. Banningham is situated between Norwich and Cromer – ideal for exploring the Norfolk Broads and the coastline. Pub in village, shops 2½ miles.
