A private annexe in a welcoming farmhouse, in the beautiful glaven valley, close to the coast and the market town of Holt. Walking distance to a lovely country pub. Self contained with your own front door, one luxury double bedroom, en-suite shower & small private kitchen.

The space

We offer just one luxurious double bedroom, The Garden Room, which is self contained, with a smart en-suite shower room, private kitchen, and own entrance area and front door.

Your kitchen is stocked with breakfast goodies so that you can help yourself, at your leisure and at a time to suit you. You will find fresh milk, butter, organic yoghurt, local bread and jams. Also a selection of teas, coffee, breakfast cereals and porridge. When our kitchen garden is in bloom we will also provide home grown strawberries or raspberries (but only in season).

There is a double bed, a comfortable sofa, flatscreen televison, table and chairs for 2 and a log burner in winter (with a basket of logs provided) and an airy outlook onto the garden in summer.

The views are spectacular and barn owls, pheasants, egrets and deer may all be seen from your window, in this protected part of the beautiful glaven valley.

Guest access

The kitchen has a fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and is equipped with
glasses, plates and cutlery etc; so if you fancy keeping a bottle of wine cold in the fridge or making yourself a cup of tea, or get tempted by the local produce when you are out and about and want to bring something tasty back to make yourself a snack with, you can as and when suits you. Please note there is no oven or hob, which makes the accommodation more suited to shorter stays.

There is a pretty outdoor table and chairs so that you can relax outside in the summer and soak up the sunshine, however we request that you respect our privacy and do not use the part of the garden that is in front of the main part of the house.

Interaction with guests

Bella can recommend places to eat, to hire bikes to meander along the country lanes, to book a beach hut at the stunning wells beach (subject to availbaility), organise boat trips to see the seals at Blakeney point or sailing lessions at Morston. Whether you would like to eat tapas overlooking the marshes, cosy up in the pub, visit the many open gardens, bird watch or even have a private session of yoga and meditation, all can be arranged.

Other things to note

The popular local pub, the Hunnybell, is approx 1 mile away in the village of Hunworth. It is a lovely scenic walk (it takes us an easy 20 minutes) along a quiet country road, next to the meadow and through the picturesque village. Please note however that we would not recommend walking at night in the winter.

Beck (as in Beck Farmhouse, which is us!) is old Norfolk dialect for a stream or small river and the house is named thus because of the beautiful strech of the river Glaven than runs alongside it. This part of the Glaven valley is a conservation area, with a 10½ mile long river flowing through picturesque countryside and then out to the North Sea. The scenic value of the Glaven valley is important to the tourist industry in North Norfolk and to the farmland surrounding it.

We had a fantastic few days at Beck Farmhouse. Bella is such a great host with a friendly welcome. The accommodation is of high quality with great attention to detail. We were absolutely delighted to find the kitchen area to be larger than we expected and the bathroom has plenty of space. We loved the area and would definitely like to come and stay again.

What a delightful home! So cosy, so pretty, so very lovely and snug, yummy fresh goodies for breakfast, and all in the most beautiful surroundings. It all made for a perfect stay. Many thanks Bella & Jeremy for being such charming, helpful hosts. Jenny & Graham

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bella's lovely apartment which was well located a couple of miles south of Holt. It was perfect for our visit to Norfolk. Lovely large room with good bathroom and small kitchen with everything we needed to make a simple breakfast which Bella had thoughtfully provided. We had four nights here and loved the countryside location as well as spotting the barn owl each evening on our return. Thanks again to Bella and her lovely family.

This is a real gem! It's like a little country cottage with its own front door and set in the most beautiful Norfolk countryside. Bella and Jeremy were warm and friendly hosts who were keen to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The large room is beautifully furnished with tasteful furniture and decorations that complement the character of the cottage. The small kitchen was perfectly adequate for making breakfast and light meals and was well equipped with good quality crockery and cutlery. When we arrived, the fridge was stocked with lovely organic produce (milk, yoghurt, butter, strawberries) and Bella had also left delicious local bread and cereals and local raspberry jam that is to die for! There was also a good supply of coffee (ground and instant) and teabags. In fact all the things that we would have chosen for ourselves. It is also worth mentioning that the bathroom was warm and welcoming, spotlessly clean and well equipped with lots of snowy white towels and good quality toiletries. We are self-confessed Norfolkaholics, so we didn't need advice on places to visit, but suffice to say that the choice of things to do within a few miles of here is immense, and being just a 5 minute drive from the lovely little town of Holt makes shopping a joy. All in all, we had a fabulous few days here and hope to return very soon.

A wonderful bolt hole in the idyllic countryside, yet just 8 minutes by car from Holt. The attention to detail is amazing and made for a most enjoyable, as well as comfortable, stay. My congratulations to Bella as well as my thanks (to both her and her family) for such a warm welcome. I hope to visit again soon. Sue

I can't recommend this beautiful place highly enough, we had a wonderful stay. It is really comfortable, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished with everything you could possibly need. Bella was a wonderful host, always on hand with advice and recommendations, and the area and surrounding countryside is incredible. This is the perfect spot to explore all the wonders North Norfolk has to offer.
