Limes Farm Cottage

Holiday accommodation for 2 – 4 people

Limes Farm Cottage is a former farmworker’s dwelling which has been sympathically renovated and extended.

There is a very generous kitchen/dining room with a handbuilt kitchen, large dining table, breakfast bar and sofa seating area. Keen cooks can use the large woodburning Esse cooker or the combination oven with grill and induction hob. The kitchen also includes a traditional butler sink, dishwasher, double fridge, a freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. French doors open onto the enclosed patio terrace leading to a large, lawned garden with views over the surrounding Broadland countryside.

The sitting room has exposed oak beams, leather seating and a cosy woodburning stove. There are games and books you are welcome to borrow and a TV and DVD player. A starter pack of wood for the woodburner is provided.

There is a downstairs single bedroom and a large walk-in shower room. All this is accessible on one level, making it suitable for people with mobility issues – please feel free to contact us for more details.

Upstairs there is a beautiful cottage double bedroom with ensuite bathroom including a roll top bath.

On the top floor is a single bedroom with amazing views over the Broads. Please be aware that this bedroom is open to the first floor landing and is accessed by paddle stairs and therefore may not be suitable for the very young or people with mobility issues.

Limes Farm Cottage has a large, fully fenced private garden with a patio terrace, seating and BBQ facilities. There is also an enclosed courtyard garden at the front of the cottage.

There is free WIFI internet access and parking for several cars is available.

Dogs may be accommodated by prior arrangement.

All bedlinen and towels (except beach towels) are provided, along with eco hand soap, toilet rolls and shower and bath gel. We supply a range of suitable eco cleaning products which suit our bio treatment plant (including dishwasher tablets, washing powder, fabric softener, washing up liquid, all purpose cleaner and bathroom cleaner).

A starter pack of firewood and all you need to start the woodburner is provided free of charge. Additional seasoned hardwood and kindling can be purchased at cost price from us. We do ask that you use suitable seasoned firewood (coal cannot be used).

Local shopping options

In the centre of Ludham is Throwers, a traditional village store with a post office and even a hairdressers! Other local independant stores include Meales at Wayford Bridge and Roys in Wroxham. A medium sized Tesco and petrol station is 6 miles away in Stalham.

Some visitors like to get their food shopping delivered direct to the holiday accommodation and all of the major supermarkets (including Sainsburys, Waitrose, Asda and Tesco) will deliver to us. We are too rural for Ocado deliveries! If you are organising an online shop please do request that it is delivered at least an hour after your arrival time (there is a tendancy for drivers to deliver earlier than booked).
