In the timeless, open landscape of the Norfolk Fens, Thorpland Manor Farm offers visitors a wonderfully peaceful rural setting and shared enjoyment of a fine range of facilities including a heated open air swimming pool. Skilfully and lovingly converted from handsome farm buildings, and carefully retaining traditional features in their beamed interiors, all seven cottages provide the highest quality of comfort. Set near the owners’ 17th century farmhouse on a working farm, they all boast their own sitting out areas as well as access to the farm grounds, where coarse fishing and farm walks make this the perfect spot in which to relax and unwind. A sauna, hot tub and games room all add to the pleasurable atmosphere. A wide variety of attractions lie within easy reach including the NT’s Oxburgh Hall, a moated manor house built in 1482 and which holds special events throughout the year, and Langham Glass, where visitors can watch the traditional skills of glass making. A wealth of crafts and antiques barns, a butterfly and wildlfe park, water gardens, farm parks, plant nurseries, museums or rural life and a rare breeds centre also promise good days out. Boasting several unique wildlife habitats and criss-crossed by footpaths and quiet lanes, the wide scenery of the Fens and the heathland and forests of the Norfolk Brecks offer excellent walking and cycling opportunities, whilst the north Norfolk coast,with its picturesque villages, salt marshes and bird reserves, is an easy drive. Sandringham House and Park is well worth a visit and the Victorian seaside resort of Hunstanton’s sandy beaches, rock pools, majestic cliffs, beautifully planted gardens, traditional amusements, fun fair and host of water based activities are sure to delight visitors of all ages. Standing on rising ground just 3.5 miles away is Downham Market, one of Norfolk’s oldest market towns and offering a good choice of shops, inns, restaurants, tennis and a sports centre. Fishing, riding and golf are all available nearby. Shops and pub serving food 1.5 miles.

    Fantastic facilities, we loved the pool and games room especially. Cleaning could have been better - food in dishwasher, hair and dirt in the ridge of the shower tray, loo brush needs replacing and the cooker extractor greasy. No dust though, and all seemed freshly painted. For a relaxing break the setting is perfect, enough to do for everyone. Kids already asking me to book again!

    Lovely relaxing holiday. You do need to travel a bit to visit anywhere but Gable Barn is a great base.
