An impressive and stunning, brick and flint Grade II listed farmhouse set within seven acres of grounds in the village of Gunthorpe, within easy access the North Norfolk coast.
Heritage Norfolk dates Valley Farmhouse to the late 16th century, with a late 17th century stair tower, and the property oozes old world characterful charm and includes many original features.
Expect vaulted ceilings, uneven floors, extra wide floor boards, thick heavy doors, stone and pamment floors, inglenook fireplaces along with a bread oven.
Opulent grandeur combined with modern day comforts throughout, interiors have been thoughtfully and stylishly designed using rich colours and beautiful fabrics that enhance the property’s age and bring it back to life.
On the ground floor you will find a large well-equipped kitchen with both oil and electric Aga cooking options. From here walk straight into a sunny dining conservatory, fully glazed with Crittall windows and double doors that lead out to the terrace overlooking the pond.
The dining hall is very grand with a log burning stove and a bespoke 3m dining table that cries out for long dinners and long, lazy lunches. Afterwards retire to the warmly atmospheric sitting room where there is a 65″ television and sublime velvet sofas to sink into.
The five bedrooms spread over two floors and each one enjoys an individual boutique theme and wonderful views across the gardens. No need to queue for the bathroom with two en suites, two family bathrooms, one bedroom has a bath within the room, plus there’s a cloakroom on the ground floor.
The grounds that surround Valley Farmhouse are made up of meadows, gardens, an orchard and include a pond as well as a lake and small stream.
There are different seating areas within the garden that enjoy lovely views across open farmland and to St Mary’s striking medieval church in the distance.
Outstanding!! The house and grounds were absolutely beautiful!! They exceeded all our expectations. Our family had a wonderful holiday at Valley Farmhouse and would definitely book again.

Had a lovely long weekend stay in this beautiful farm house. Has lots of character but at the same time a contemporary feel. We had everything we needed there and was in a good location from neighbouring villages and the coast. The dogs loved the large grounds and so did our little boy.

The village of Gunthorpe is situated in a shallow valley on the eastern side of the A148 King’s Lynn to Cromer road.
At the centre of the village is a green where there is a convergence of five roads.
It is a very historical village with many interesting buildings including Gunthorpe Hall, designed by Sir John Soane who was the architect of The Bank of England building in Threadneedle Street.
This pretty and peaceful rural village is a superb base from which to explore both rural and coastal North Norfolk at any time of the year.
Only a twenty minute drive to the beautiful North Norfolk coast where you can discover charming coastal villages, some great gastro pubs, fantastic scenery and lots more.
