The Gate House

SLEEPS 4

One of a pair of gate houses leading to Kimberley Hall (built in 1712) and set at the edge a stunning Capability Brown designed parkland listed by Kew gardens as containing the highest concentration of ancient oak trees (500+ years old) in East Anglia, and 25th best parkland oaks in the UK. Kimberley Hall is one of Norfolk most important historic houses and this romantic pink gate house with its own private garden overlooks a beautiful landscape frequented by grazing cattle, Roe deer and Muntjac deer, and stands 400 m from the meandering River Tiffey and an elegant hump-backed bridge.

This exquisite property offers a double bedroom with high quality super-king bed with custom made headboard, charming bathroom with arched window looking towards the parkland, a fully equipped kitchen, and a ‘Tardis’ like sitting room with a high domed ceiling with a Loaf sofa bed (the equivalent of a standard double bed), large TV, together with a high tech LED log effect burner. The gate house has its own large private garden with an outside table, 4 chairs and 2m parasol, plus BBQ. The adjacent 3-acre paddock can be used when cattle are not grazing and there is also a horse shed for those who wish to bring their own pony. The garden faces west so perfect for sundown cocktails.

The private drive links you to a public footpath known as the Tiffey Trail that runs from the river Tiffey through the park and its majestic oaks, to Wymondham and its magnificent 12th-century Abbey.
