Church Farm House is open. We are now taking onward bookings, and especially looking forward to greeting returning guests. Benson, our new canine host, is delighted to greet all guests and is always ready to offer the opportunity for playing fetch, or other games with him.
The garden is looking more autumnal each week, but there is still quite a bit of colour from the flowers. The woodstore is full in readiness for those autumn and winter fires in the inglenook.The tulip bulbs will shortly be planted in preparation for the spring blooms.
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 day’s 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.
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, 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.
Your visit to Church Farm House usually starts with a late afternoon tea, often served in the conservatory. It’s time for getting to know one another and a chance to absorb the warm and friendly atmosphere of the house.
Enjoying dinner together with your hosts at the oak dining table, eating lovingly prepared food by candlelight, is a very special part of the overall Church Farm House experience. Many of the dinner’s ingredients will be from local produce and many of the dishes you will enjoy are from special Bassett recipes.
