Built in 1820 as a veterinary practice to serve the Royal Sandringham Stud, Caradon House has been completely re-designed to provide an excellent base from which discerning guests can explore all that North Norfolk has to offer. Still a vets until the 1980s, the current owners have lovingly restored Caradon House to provide everything that guests could need. All of the rooms are decorated to a very high standard to provide light and airy accommodation, and with informal and formal dining areas, a large kitchen and separate cooking area, lots of well-appointed bathrooms, four areas in which to relax and unwind and a large garden to enjoy the sunshine in, everything really has been thought of to provide maximum comfort. Close by, quaint Norfolk fishing villages line the coast, offering beaches, quays and marshes galore to explore. In truth, there are far too many to name them all, but Brancaster, Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Blakeney are all within easy reach. There is also a series of nature reserves to explore, including the RSPB site, Titchwell Marsh, home to nesting avocets, bitterns and marsh harriers. From the little harbour at Brancaster Staithe, take a boat trip and enjoy the views of the coastline and a stop off at Scolt Head Island, a bird sanctuary and nature reserve. For a change of pace, and less than half an hour’s drive away, head to the Victorian seaside town of Hunstanton, with its beach that seems to go on for ever, unusual striped cliffs towering over 60 feet high, and a Sea Life Centre, fun fair, indoor swimming pool and a cliff-top golf course. In fact, golfers really will be spoilt for choice with The Royal West Norfolk (Brancaster) Golf Club, Hunstanton and Fakenham also close by. There is lots you can do to work up an appetite and, although the kitchen at Caradon House simply begs to be used, foodies will find lots of reasons to eat out as Norfolk’s burgeoning good food reputation continues to grow. Great food can be found virtually on the doorstep and a little further afield with all tastes catered for, often using local produce. With bustling market towns, great walks and cycle routes and so much to see and do, if you can tear yourself away from beautiful Caradon House, you really will be spoilt for choice. Beach 15 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

We had a brilliant stay at Caradon House! It is an amazing house with so much space for everyone. A really good feature of the house is that there are 10 bathrooms and you could all use the showers at the same time without even noticing that someone else was using the shower and there was endless hot water for everyone. The only downside was that there were several holes in the garden fence between Caradon House and next door in the right hand side as you look out of the house and down the garden. My dog got through these holes very easily and once ended up in a horses field which was a couple of gardens along. Clearly this is very dangerous and the holes need to be blocked up so the garden is safe for dogs. It really is a wonderful, comfy house in a beautiful part of Norfolk though which I would highly recommend. Thank you

A fantastic property, well maintained and very clean. Ideally situated with a very good pub just across the green. Perfect for a family get together, lots of space and every bedroom has it’s own bathroom. The garden is huge with lots of space for games - just perfect!
