Heckingham Manor holiday home

Heckingham Manor has lots of character and is well furnished and equipped, and sleeps 10 people. Deep in rural south Norfolk, the house stands on its own, surrounded by secure enclosed lawned gardens with its own private hot tub and wonderful views over open countryside.

The owner farms a mixed farm at Heckingham Hall so there are cattle, sheep and horses in many of the fields: the Manor is part of this estate and Heckingham Hall is the nearest neighbour. Many of the animals are native breeds, including Red Poll cattle. Concern for wildlife is key: conservation strips are provided to enable birds to feed in the winter with wild flowers around the arable fields to enhance wildlife habitat.

On the ground floor is an entrance hall, large kitchen/breakfast room with Aga and an electric cooker, and a laundry room. The dining room and sitting room have wooden floors, and there is a wood burning stove in the sitting room. Twin bedded room with a wooden floor and a separate cloakroom with WC and basin.

Stairs lead to the first floor where there is a master bedroom with 5ft double bed and ensuite shower room with WC and basin. A second double bedroom has a 5ft bed and a single 3ft bed, and a further bedroom has three single 3ft beds. There is a separate family bathroom consisting of a bath and separate shower, WC and basin.

There are designated grass tracks around the farm and visitors are welcome to wander and enjoy the farm animals and other wildlife including deer, woodpeckers, owls and lapwings. The local lanes and footpaths are quiet and there are great walks and cycle routes from the property.

Farm walk and guided tour with the farmer followed by lunch or cream tea, using home produced or locally sourced food. Availability limited and prior booking is essential. The walk and meal are subject to an additional charge per head, which depends upon the meal taken and the numbers of adults and children.
