This beautifully restored 16thC house, a historically interesting building has been lovingly and sympathetically brought up to modern standards without losing its cosy old charm. It is directly across from the old flint church in the agricultural village of North Lopham, near the market town of Diss. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the Bassetts' hospitality. Both are inventive cooks who enjoy offering guests a four-course evening candlelit dinner for only £27.00. Church Farm House is a non-smoking house offering en suite accommodation, well-behaved children over 14 and well-behaved dogs are accepted by special arrangement. More information:
