This spacious and character-filled farmhouse commands views of the surrounding mixed arable farmland. Comfortable and airy, it enjoys a secluded and quiet position amidst a south-facing, half-acre garden, with furnished sitting-out area and terrace. Set to the north of Sandringham, it is well placed for exploring the many delights of Norfolk’s coast and countryside. The traditional seaside resort of Hunstanton is just 4 miles away, where a variety of attractions include the theatre, a public swimming-pool, facilities for water-skiing, an 18-hole golf course (handicap certificate required), sports centre and tennis courts. This area is ideal for keen bird-watchers and walkers, with many posted walks through countryside and the Peddar’s Way (a trackway used from Roman times) close by, and RSPB reserves at Holme and Titchwell (3 miles). Stately homes and gardens such as those at Houghton and Holkham make for interesting day trips, and there is an array of attractions on offer for the children. Sandringham Estate which is one of the Queen’s country homes is well worth a visit and is open to the public unless a member of the Royal family is residence. Only an 18-mile drive away is King’s Lynn – a busy town with several splendid Tudor and Georgian buildings and is perfect for meandering down the alleyways that lead back from the pretty waterfront. A short distance is the pretty town of Burnham Thorpe – birthplace of Horatio Nelson and where today in the parish church the lectern is made out of timbers taken from his famous ship the Victory, as well as a small exhibition on his life. Closer to home are the beaches, shops, pubs and restaurants of Thornham (1 mile).

    A wonderful house for a large family group. We would certainly go again. It’s modern spacious accommodation combined with some nice antique ornaments was very tasteful. The Kitchen was extremely well equipped. The house had two of “everything”: dining rooms, lounges, dishwashers, washing machines, etc!! All bedrooms had wonderful en-suites.

    A lovely place to spend a weekend with our family for a birthday celebration. The house was perfect, and more than big enough for our group of nine adults and three children. In fact the dining room and sitting room were unused as we all gathered in the games room or the enormous kitchen. Well-equipped with plenty of crockery and glasses. A welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and flapjacks (not forgetting the prosecco) was a thoughtful touch. The beautiful weather was just the icing on the cake.

    Lovely home, great kitchen. Big fridge plus wine fridge!! We didn't even use some of the rooms (utility, dining and drawing room) We loved the big family kitchen and big lounge with great log burner and table tennis. 6 large bedrooms, all ensuite. We had some problems with the hot water which they did their best to sort out but it did put a downer on our weekend as we couldn't fully utilise the gorgeous bathrooms. #ColdShowers The house is finished to a high standard. It was clean and lovely although seemed to have a few dead flies hanging around. The kitchen and aga were lovely. Great location - quite far from village of Thornham bit then we walked to old Hunstanton and got the bus back 😄

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your review. Just like to mention that we had a faulty thermostat which has now been replaced. So buckets of hot water are available now.

    A long weekend with good friends, this provided a perfect house for quality time . We were all 60+adults and enjoyed the opulence of lyng Farmhouse. Would suggest if you have young children that they would need to be constantly watched due to the exceptional quality of the interior plus it is a working farm and would need to be careful of machinery etc. We have spent weekends like this frequently with the same friends and this is definitely "a find".

    We stayed in this recently refurbished farmhouse with all our family - 11 people over 3 generations and the house was big enough to accommodate us all comfortably. The refurbishment is fabulous - all 6 double bedrooms have new beds and new ensuite bathrooms, done to a super standard. The games room with table tennis table was very popular with the middle generation and the kitchen was very well equipped, with 2 dishwashers, washing machines and tumble driers and a table which seated 12 comfortably. The farmhouse is in the middle of a working farm which was very interesting - the passing tractors were a big hit with the youngest grandchildren. The garden is also large and safe. The owner is very friendly and helpful and there were nice touches such as a welcome basket and milk and prosecco in the fridge! We had a great week and will definitely be back!
