Hawthorn House description

Hawthorn House is a three bedroomed, semi-detached property, built on former Holkham Estate land, in a village still mostly owned by the Earl of Leicester. Its classic yellow brick appearance and functional design is unique to this part of Norfolk and perfectly complements the landscape as well as the famous gault bricks used in the construction of Holkham Hall. The house enjoys a quiet,end of road position, with the private woodland of the adjacent listed properties on two borders, and is ideal for children and pets. The large rear garden of Hawthorn House is divided into two sections; a pretty patio area for entertaining and a ’wild garden’ where dogs may play. The property is situated in a small, edge of village hamlet, made up of private and rented accommodation, with plenty of birds and wildlife, but as it is also close to Holkham Estate farmland you will see agricultural activity and hear pheasant shoots in season.
The dog friendly village pub and restaurant is just a 5-minute walk from Hawthorn House and was owned by Holkham Estate up until 1966. The village is also home to East Anglia’s best preserved iron age hill fort and the beautiful River Stiffkey valley.
In spite of its very rural location, Warham is literally a 3-minute drive from the sailing harbour of Wells-next-the-Sea, with its narrow gauge railway, picturesque quay and lovely mix of traditional and artisan cafés, shops and restaurants. The whole coastline, both east and west, offer a collection of quays, marshes and breathtaking beaches, and whether you are relaxing on the beach in the sun (Holkham and Wells-next-the-Sea both feature award-winning beaches), crabbing at Blakeney, walking at Brancaster or birdwatching on one of the many marshes, you will be spoilt for choice. Called ‘Royal Norfolk’, as this area is the country retreat for the Royal Family, and The Sandringham Estate, Holkham Hall and the Blickling Estate are all within easy reach, as is Pensthorpe Nature Reserve.
History lovers should plan in a visit to the medieval city of Norwich or the Hanseatic old quarter of Kings Lynn, and those seeking all the traditional seaside attractions, including a Sealife Centre and a small fun fair, should head to Hunstanton. With numerous walks and cycle routes available, and lots of great places to eat, you really will be spoilt for choice. Beach 2 miles.
