Our eight cottages – Oak, Holly, Ash, Beech, Elm, Chestnut, Rowan and Willow – have been designed as a home from home, so you can really relax while you’re here.
The kitchens have everything you need for self-catering, there are baths to sink into after a long walk, and the beds are so comfortable you might struggle to get out of them in the morning. For families, the best thing is that the cottages are robust, spotless and fully equipped with everything from highchairs to cots and stairgates – so your kids can really enjoy themselves without you worrying.Many of the cottages have their own private garden or patio – and even those that don’t have acres of space right outside their front door.
We also have six pet-friendly cottages with lobby areas where your dog can dry off before coming inside.
What’s on site
Wood Farm’s 25-acre site has enough to keep you busy for the whole of your last-minute break. Stretch your legs on the two-field walk, which is easy enough even for little legs and on which you might get to spot deer, hedgehogs and the resident barn owl. Then there’s the farm’s two gorgeously fluffy Valais sheep – Gio and Georgie – to get to know.
Kids will want to spend hours on the play equipment – not just the usual swings and slides but also the zip line, trampoline, sandpit and, perhaps best of all, three ride-on tractors. Then there’s football, basketball, badminton and volleyball, plus table tennis, darts and table football inside.
If you want to find out the best things to do, both on-site and further afield, head to our reception area where you can plan your time using our big wall map and leaflets, or chat to us for some personal recommendations.
Wood Farm’s position in North Norfolk means there’s so much to explore on a break here. The quiet lanes around the farm are perfect for exploring on foot or two wheels – and there’s a fantastic pub within easy walking distance.
Of course, a big draw here is the beaches, the nearest of which is just a fifteen-minute drive away. Brancaster and Holkham provide miles of sand and dunes, while Sheringham and Cromer will have you reminiscing about childhood holidays. There’s also an abundance of wildlife opportunities, from birdwatching at Scolt Head Island to seal spotting at Blakeney, plus interesting old towns like Holt, which are full of great places to eat.
Wet-weather fun is plentiful too – take a ride on the Poppy Line’s steam train, explore one of Norfolk’s countless historic houses, or head to Norwich for museums. The choices are endless.
