This holiday property is set within the grounds of Yaxham House, the owner’s home, the Georgian Grade II listed former rectory that served the parish of Yaxham. The Old Rectory Coach House is the detached former coach house to the former rectory. Situated in its own grounds, it has achieved a silver award in Green Tourism. The property enjoys an attractive and secluded setting approached by a private road and drive adjacent to the parish church of St Peters. It offers a warm welcome at any time of the year and is a perfect base for exploring all that the area has to offer.

The Mid Norfolk Railway (MNR) is ½ mile away with trips available from Yaxham to Wymondham Abbey and Dereham. Dereham, 2 miles, offers an indoor swimming pool, cinema, bowling, shops, supermarkets and a market on Tuesdays and Fridays. The property lies within an hour’s drive of the coast, with excellent sandy beaches and RSPB nature and bird reserves. The Norfolk Broads, the Brecks (and its stone curlews), Peddars Way, Norfolk Coastal Path and many National Trust properties are also easily accessible.

The village is at the centre of a network of footpaths and there is a children’s play area and recreation ground close to the church. From the nearby bus stop, regular bus services go to Dereham and Norwich. Restaurant/takeaway and café/bistro ½ mile.
Can be booked with The Old Rectory Lodge (ref UKC2241) to accommodate up to 7 guests.

Had an amazing time! Whole family relaxed and didn’t want to leave. The Coach house was stunning and had everything you could possibly need.

Lovely cottage with all the facilities you should need. Bed was a little hard for me but that’s just me, my husband thought it was fine. Lovely touch on arrival - the owners left a bottle of wine, a bottle of milk & a cake as a welcome. Although a little bit out of the way amenities are not too far, though you couldn’t really walk to them. Supermarkets galore to choose from. We got to the coast & to Cambridge so plenty of options for days out. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would definitely recommend.

Lovely cottage: clean & very well equipped in a beautiful peaceful location. Plenty of off road dog walks. Perfect for a quiet and relaxing week away.
