Church Farm House is a Grade II listed building, its oldest part dating from around 1570. One of its special listing features are the 18th century windows, allowing plenty of natural light to pour into the house.

You are welcome to relax in the living room, reading or enjoying some music — we expect you to make yourself at home. On colder evenings there is nothing quite so enchanting as a log fire in the inglenook, the traditional days end in a thatched Norfolk farm house.

Please take every opportunity to enjoy the grounds, a splendid array of colour and variety during most of the year. Relax in the conservatory if the weather doesn’t invite you outside, or choose from the garden benches, the swing, or the terrace furniture to soak up some sunshine and listen to the sound of water babbling in one of the ponds.


Comfortable Bed

You’ll be staying in one of the three guest bedrooms situated on the first floor, bearing the names of composers — as seems fitting for the home of two musicians. Vivaldi is a single bedroom with a large ensuite shower room, Verdi is a twin bedroom with ensuite shower with the possibility of a super king double bed by previous arrangement, and Rossini features a four poster bed and ensuite shower. The bedrooms are very different in character, but all feature hand painted Hindelopen decoration and a wonderful view of St. Nicholas Church. Each of the bedrooms has a music centre with an ipod dock and a flat screen television set. Wireless broadband is available throughout the house.

Sumptuous Breaksfast


Breakfast at Church Farm House will be served either in the conservatory or the dining room.

Many guests opt for the ‘Church Farm House Breakfast‘, which features our special sausages (made by Edge butters in East Harling from Georgia’s recipe), bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes and farm fresh free-range eggs.

Dick always makes a fresh fruit cup, and for those wanting a lighter meal there are variations on the theme, such as cereals and freshly made home baked bread with various local jams and marmalades.

Freshly brewed tea and coffee round off a sumptuous start to the day.

Beautiful Garden
