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 six 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 National Trust’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 crisscrossed 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. The nearest village stores and a pub serving food are both about 1.5 miles.

We had a fantastic holiday here. The barn was great and the pool being just outside our door was a bonus. The cottage was well equipped and had a lovely view of the horses from the living room window. The hot tub and games room were an added bonus but we used the pool more. It is ideally located for visits out and would highly recommend booking the safari at Watatunga. A lovely place to stay if you're wanting a break away in this lovely part of the country. Highly recommend.

What a gem! Timbers Barn was clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped. The beds in particular were very comfy. The site had plenty to do and we all enjoyed the spotlessly clean pool on our doorstep. A little on site play area entertained our 2 and 4 year old for hours, though it did need maintenance on some of the wooden equipment. Location wise it’s rural and there are a couple of beautiful walks that start and end on site. Shops are a short drive away. In terms of decor the barn is very dated. There are some pictures full of dead insects downstairs that aren’t the best; a lot of horse paraphernalia hanging above our heads that was a little eerie on an evening; plus the soft furnishings upstairs could do with being brought into the millennium for a more lux feel. That said, it barely impacted our stay as overall it was a wonderful holiday and Timbers Barn made a near perfect holiday home.
