Tranquil Location and perfect family holiday home

Holiday home in Fakenham with kitchen and patio
This is a beautifully presented detached family house situated in a quiet and very private woodland setting. The house was built in 2006 in a barn conversion style and was specifically designed by the owners to be ideal for their own family holidays with their children and their friends. As such it is ideally laid out with an excellent balance of open plan living space and comfortable, well proportioned bedrooms. As a 'home from home' the house has a very high standard of furniture and equipment throughout and there are plenty of games and DVDs to ensure that there is still plenty to do for adults and children alike on those odd days that the weather spoils your plans. There are two sets of large patio doors leading off the main reception room, the largest of which leads out onto a full width covered patio area and enormous south facing garden beyond. As such this room is wonderfully light and airy during the summer months but with the deep leather Chesterfield sofas and log burner it can also become warm and snug in the winter. In all it is the perfect year round holiday house!

Amazing Holiday!!!
What a lovely home, which my family and I thoroughly enjoyed! The garden is large and great for the kids to entertain themselves and I appreciated the open aspect of the lay out which enabled us to prepare food while keeping an eye on the kids. It is set in a lovely quiet cul-de-sac and has everything to fulfil a families requirements. I would highly recommend, as it is the perfect location to enjoy many great beaches and attractions. Thank you to Spencer for his prompt responses and we hope to return next year!

Family Holiday
Lovely holiday house very clean and tidy everything you could possibly need. Comfy beds and great linen. Only slight thing I would say is Bedroom Curtains could do with being heavier to block out the light as the children wake up very early due to light weight curtains. We had a great holiday. Owner very helpful. Thank you
