A fine period house in 3.7 acres with 3 cottages and a tennis court about 2.2 miles from Holt

Town Farm is a charming and substantial period house with delightful far reaching views over the Glaven valley within 3 miles of Holt. The house has good ceiling heights and offers quality flexible accommodation over three floors. The house has a number of period features including exposed beams, open fireplaces and sash windows. Of particular note is the large bay window in the drawing room which offers superb views over the gardens, grounds and rolling countryside beyond. There is plenty of storage space and the house links well with the mature and impressive garden which is principally to the south and west. The cottages would be suitable for extended family or for a mixture of uses, including holiday lets. One of the cottages currently serves as a rather spectacular home office/library with a vaulted ceiling, fireplace and a mezzanine floor. There is also a useful, separately accessed, laundry/utility room. The current owners have been at Town Farm for over 30 years and have, amongst other improvements (including the recent solar array and batteries), had sketch plans drawn up for an orangery style extension to the kitchen to the west into the walled garden.

Thornage is an attractive village with a square-towered flint church and many fine period properties that all contribute to its Conservation Area designation. It lies within the Glaven Valley which consists of beautiful rolling countryside with a good range of footpaths and bridleways. There are a variety of local eateries including pubs in the neighbouring villages of Hunworth and Letheringsett and the popular farm shop and restaurant, Back to the Garden, all around a mile away. The village lies approximately 2.2 miles south-west of the Georgian market town of Holt with its wide range of independent shops which include a wide range of restaurants and other amenities along with the renowned Gresham’s Public School (providing co-ed private schooling from pre-prep to sixth form for both day pupils and boarders). The equally-renowned Beeston Preparatory School (day and boarders) lies around 15 minutes’ drive away.

The North Norfolk coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is only 5 miles away, with long stretches of uninterrupted beaches, nature reserves and sailing from Blakeney and Morston.

The cathedral city of Norwich is about 25 miles and offers a full range of entertainment, shopping and cultural amenities. Its railway station provides a regular service to London Liverpool Street (about 110 minutes) and to Cambridge (about 70 minutes). Norwich International Airport is on the northern outskirts.

Alternative train services, most-easily accessible at Downham Market, are provided on the King’s Lynn to Kings Cross line (97 mins) with connecting services at Ely to the Midlands and the North and at Cambridge for Stansted and Gatwick Airports.


On entering Thornage from Holt, continue past the turning to Letheringsett Road and Town Farm can be found on the left hand side after a short distance.
