There is plenty of parking.

The Gergian gem towns of Holt and Burnham Market are close by with their antique shops and boutiques.

Perfectly situated for family days out - why not visit the seals at Blakeney, the Dinosaur Park at Lenwade or the children’s adventure park Bewilderwood. A miniature railway links Aylsham and Wroxham, giving perfect access to a family day out on the Broads. The Norfolk Wildlife Trust Reserves at Hickling, Ranworth and Cley Marshes are within easy reach. The beach at Holkham always feels deserted and if you are lucky you may see the Household Cavalry horses there during the summer while the horses are on their holidays - perfect!

A home-made, freshly baked cake, bread, milk, a bottle of wine, orange juice, tea and coffee, crisps and fruit.

Long weekend in January

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property, very clean and well-appointed. For three couples and one baby there was plenty of room. The welcome pack was much appreciated and kept us refreshed until our shopping was delivered. It was a chilly weekend so we used the wood-burning stove and kept warm. Thanks to our host, Serena, for looking after us so well - from initial enquiries to clear instructions for finding the house and using the heating etc. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Dear Rosemary Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the house - in the winter it's just lovely to curl up in front of the wood burner after a walk in one of the beautiful National Trust properties nearby so I'm glad you enjoyed it too. We would love to have you back as guests again. Best wishes

Super cottage, spacious, comfortable and perfect for a relaxed escape

  • 5 of 5

Our fifth visit - that says it all ! The house is exceptionally comfortable , warm, spotlessly clean and well appointed. The owners are generous and have a great eye for detail. We have celebrated family birthdays and pre - Christmas and it has always been terrific. All ages (6 to 71 ) love it. North Norfolk has a lot to offer and staying here makes it extra special.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2018. Best wishes Serena

Holiday with friends

  • 4 of 5

Everything you need for a relaxing stay . It was warm and cosy with a nice pub close by, set in a lovely village. Just perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at The Coach House. I am so pleased that you had such a lovely, relaxing stay and that you had everything you needed. In the colder months the house is perfectly situated for the numerous long walks locally, and around the National Trust properties nearby, and then coming home to a warm, cosy house with a roaring log fire. I will make sure that the landlady of the village pub, which is just a short stroll away, knows that you enjoyed your meals. I do hope that you decide to come and stay with us again - we would love to host you. Best wishes

Beautiful property in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

The Coach House is ideally located in a peaceful location but within easy access to the coast and The Broads. The house is well equipped, though I would highly recommend at least one visit to the local pub, The Banningham Crown, which has an extensive menu of high quality meals. The layout of the Coach House suited our extended family holiday and the two largest bedrooms had plenty of room for the travel cot. I would highly recommend the Coach House for families wanting to explore this area of Norfolk.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your positive review. We love the position of the Coach House - it is so quiet and peaceful but close to all the amenities of Norwich and the beautiful North Norfolk coast. The village is quaint and I am so pleased that you had such a lovely time at the local pub - I will make sure that I pass on your comments to the landlady. We have a lot of guests who return year after year because the house is so well suited to holidaying with extended family - there is enough space for everyone to be able to relax, so I am really pleased that it suited your needs perfectly. I do hope that we will be able to host you again soon. With very best wishes.

A lovely stay in Norfolk

  • 5 of 5

The Coach House was beautifully kept, well presented and immaculately clean. We were left a very generous starter pack by the owners, including a homemade cake which was a lovely gesture. Having stayed in many properties over the years, this isn't always the case and when you arrive at a property after a long journey, sometimes the last thing you feel like doing is going on a hunt for a shop to find some milk for a cuppa! So it was much appreciated that the basics (and more!) were all covered. The property is in a very small village which has an excellent pub called The Crown where we ate a couple of evenings. The food was really good and the pub was very popular. The area is full of things to do and places to visit. There are NT properties close by, the coast is only a short drive and Norwich isn't far either so it was an excellent spot for a holiday. I would regard a car as being essential though. All in all, a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your fantastic review. We are so pleased that you had a great stay and that you had everything you needed from the minute you arrived. The Coach House is in a fantastic spot to visit the coast, see the NT properties and enjoy our special village with its lovely green and super local pub. We would love to welcome you back anytime. Thank you for leaving the property so clean and tidy too.

Tastefully decorated, spacious accommodation in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week during half term and had a most pleasant stay. The accommodation was tastefully decorated, clean, and there was abundant hot water (and abundant bathrooms!) Washing up liquid. dishwasher tablets and washing liquid were provided (always a bugbear of mine when they are absent) and a super and very generous hamper was waiting for us on our arrival. The addition of a fresh cake (plus candle for my sons birthday) was a very special touch and it tasted delicious!

We found it a little tricky to negotiate the very tight entrance in our car, and our Sainsburys delivery couldn't find us as there is no sign - but those would be my only quibbles. Otherwise a fantastic week with plenty to do in the area! Many thanks

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review. I am so happy that you had a lovely stay - we always try to provide everything you could need so I'm pleased that you had everything you could want. We are planning to widen the entrance gates over the summer and will make sure that we put a sign up on the new gate posts so that future deliveries can find the property more easily. I hope you come back and stay with us again soon. Best wishes Serena

Why Serena Woolliams chose Norwich

When we first saw the Coach House it was totally derelict with trees growing through the roof and we were under strict instructions not to go inside as it was so unsafe! But we fell in love with it because it is in such a peaceful, unspoilt location and we could see it would be so beautiful when it was restored.

We imported an entire barn from Holland to replace the beams as every part of the building had to be renewed. Now we have a beautiful, sunny property with all the modern luxuries anyone could want but with all the charm of the original 18th century building.

What makes this house unique

The Coach House is so spacious and beautifully finished, yet it retains all the character of the original building. We have retained the original tudor windows where possible and have installed triple glazed windows and doors to keep the building snug and warm.

The Coach House combines modern luxury living with old world charm.

Location

Car: necessary

The Coach House is perfectly located between historic Norwich with its renowned shopping and cultural sites and the stunning North Norfolk coast. Close by there are the National Trust properties at Blickling and Felbrigg with their open air concerts and stunning rhododendron and azalea displays. The Georgian gem towns of Holt and Burnham Market are close by with their antique shops and boutiques.

Perfectly situated for family days out - why not visit the seals at Blakeney, the Dinosaur Park at Lenwade or the children’s adventure park Bewilderwood.
