This property is part of our English Country Cottages collection

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


This lovely holiday cottage is located on the doorstep of Hickling Broad, and 3 miles from a glorious sandy beach.

Perfect for summer holidays or winter escapes, for reunions and family gatherings, the warmest of welcomes awaits your arrival at Meadow Farm. Nestled in the countryside, close to the village with its shop and two inns serving food, this is the perfect location to explore the best of Norfolk with its amazing coastline and its famous Norfolk Broads. The barns, each boasting character, are over 200 years old, yet offer contemporary open plan living, and are well equipped and furnished to provide excellent comfort. These well-appointed adjoining barns each enjoy privacy, their own enclosed garden with seating furniture and private parking. The holiday properties are situated in a separate area of the owner’s grounds, which also has a small, members only, Registered Caravan Club site for five caravans, on the properties meadow.

Close by is Hickling Broad, with a nature reserve that links to the Norfolk Broad’s unique topography of reed-lined waterways, famous for their good coarse fishing, boating and rich variety of wildlife, especially waterfowl. Also 3 miles drive away, are the glorious sandy beaches of Sea Palling and Waxham, often visited by seals. Visit Wroxham (11 miles), the capital of the Norfolk Broads, with its waterside cafés, restaurants, shops and daily river trips available. Also catch the Bure Valley Steam Railway here for a wonderful trip to Aylsham. Daily boat hire is available at nearby Hickling Broad and Potter Heigham, ½ mile and 3½ miles away respectively. Quiet country lanes and trails are great for relaxed cycling and walking.

Nearby attractions include BeWILDerwood (a treetop adventure park for children), many National Trust properties including Blickling and Felbrigg Hall and Horsey Windpump. Visit the seaside resort of Great Yarmouth (14 miles) which has a fun fair, amusements and an indoor leisure centre with swimming pool, as well as Cromer (21 miles) with a promenade and pier, and Sheringham (26 miles), home to the North Norfolk Steam Railway. The city of Norwich (21 miles), with its cathedral, castle, museums, galleries, restaurants, cinema, theatre and shopping with two malls and market square is within easy driving distance. For another great day out, visit Horsey Gap (National Trust) where you can walk on the sand dunes and see the seals and pups on the beach (November to February). Beach 3 miles. Two pubs serving good food, one with a small shop both within walking distance.

    A first class stay in a luxury cottage with every amenity, nothing forgotten and everything of the highest standard. Just one little niggle the mattress on the 4-poster bed is not the most comfortable, but we do understand that everyones taste in mattresses does differ.

    Great holiday cottage with three double rooms all with lovely en suite. Great for our weekend away with 3 couples. Cottage is well equipped and the owners left us a lovely welcome pack There was dubious reviews for the nearest pub - The Pleasure Boat which is about a 15 minute walk away but we had a good meal there on the Friday evening

    I booked this cottage for our growing family of ourselves, grandparents with our children, partners and babies, ranging in age from 63 to 6 weeks! The ensuite bedrooms were lovely. The amenities of dishwasher, Wi-fi, TVs, laundry etc all good. Owners very helpful. Outside eating area ideal as it was also secure for the dog. The meadow was an open green9 space, quiet and spacious. The area is close to many beautiful coastal and country walks, and places of interest. There are many places to eat out but as we also like to cook together as a family we were rather cramped in the kitchen and the bbq too small for 6 adults. However, overall, a great place to stay. The owners have put a lot of thought into the finishing touches and facilities. Certainly one of the best self catering places we have stayed in.

    A beautiful and well equipped cottage, in a lovely location. The owners Karen and Martin couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful, we felt very welcome. With dogs being allowed at no extra cost and doggie necessities such as poo bags available in the cottage it was just perfect. The welcome pack was a nice touch too. We would not hesitate to recommend The Dairy to friends and family and will stay again if we return to Norfolk in the future.
