Plumstead Hall Farmhouse is run by Emma & Percy, originally from Africa and London respectively. They met in London and then lived for several years in the Cotswolds before moving to Norfolk to live the dream! Percy works as a graphic and web designer and Emma has her own bespoke travel company. The atmosphere is very much informal and relaxed with the gentle buzz of a family and two friendly dogs. Guests are welcome to bring well behaved dogs.
We are situated on a privately owned estate in one of the most sought after areas of North Norfolk. The popular North Norfolk Georgian market town of Holt is approximately 6 miles from the property, where excellent shopping and other amenities are available.
The North Norfolk Coast, much of which is classified as being of outstanding natural beauty and is a heritage coastline, is only 11 miles away and offers numerous recreational pursuits, including bird sanctuaries, safe sandy beaches and excellent sailing facilities at Blakeney & Morston. There are 18 hole golf courses in Cromer, Sheringham and Brancaster, with Cley next the Sea renowned as a major birdwatching sanctuary, with fresh and saltwater marshes. There is also national hunt racing at Fakenham half an hour away. The area is bursting with good places to eat from Morston Hall celebrity chef Galton Blackiston to the latest destination pub ‘The Gunton Arms’ set in the deer parks of Gunton Estate.
Norwich, the cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia is approximately 22 miles away and has a regular train service to London Liverpool Street with an approximate fastest time of 1 hour and 40 minutes.
“Where to begin? Our stay here in North Norfolk was pretty much perfect. We were looking for a cozy, out-of-the-way place to get some deep rest and relaxation, and we certainly found it. Our bedroom was gorgeous, incredibly welcoming and with quite possibly the most comfortable bed ever. Babies don’t sleep this soundly. All the little amenities were there, including yummy shortbread biscuits, tea and coffee. We had our own gigantic bathroom right across the hall, and downstairs a small kitchen area that was very sunny in the morning. Perfect place to have breakfast before setting out. The B&B is very near both coastal areas and countryside, and there are loads of great local places to eat. Which brings me to the real treat here: our hosts. Percy and Emma are some of the loveliest and most genuine people you’ll meet; it was so lucky to have booked this place. Not only do they know many, many great things to do and places to eat around the region, but they are sincerely interesting people. Very generous, very engaging to chat with, and overall just very welcoming. Their kids are sweet, and the dogs are fantastic. This family made us feel right at home. Highly recommended, and I can’t wait to go back!”
