Christmas is coming……..

The days at the end of November are proving to be every bit as beautiful as the early ones,  the sparkling night frosts are giving clear skies and the most amazing views of the stars through the windows or out in the garden if you wrap up warm and take a hot chocolate with you! Hard to believe that soon it will be Christmas, but still lots to look forward to here at Olde Farm at one of my favourite times of the year, so if you fancy a relaxing (or busy) last minute pre-Christmas break here in beautiful South Norfolk we still have a few dates available and some amazing craft and food markets events taking place – including seals now being born. The lights in Norwich are beautiful and the carol concerts in the cathedral are an absolute must!  Alternatively book yourself in for a post-Christmas break, to take long walks along the country and coastal paths to shed some of those festive pounds that you have gained and see Norfolk in all it’s Winter beauty, then come back here for a BBQ in The Smial or curl up in front of the fires with a good book and a glass of wine and relax until you go out and do it all again the next day.  Check our website for availability and then give us a call or send an email. Looking forward to hearing from you and sharing the delights of Olde Farm.

Eagles spotted flying over Olde Farm

Yesterday and today we have been treated to the most amazing sight of a family of three eagles flying and circling over the pond here at Olde Farm.  Though I have to confess that the ducks and swans were less than happy at the thought of becoming breakfast for the birds!

Nature is just amazing and we are so lucky to have so much of it here to see and experience.

New lookout finished

The new addition to the garden, overlooking the pond – the Lookout – is now finished and though I say it myself it is a wonderful place to sit and relax whilst the children use the playground or in the evenings to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset and the wonderful stars emerge – magic

Grand Norwich Duck Race 2018

We recently took part in the Grand Norwich Duck Race with our sponsored duck – Miss Bee Haven, sadly we did not win but we have the most wonderful time cheering her on and raising funds for an excellent local charity – Break – which works with and supports vulnerable children and adults.  Hopefully next year we will be more successful!

Where to eat and drink

Just added today a new page to the website which can be found under ‘Whats Local’ this gives our personal recommendations for places to eat and drink in and around the local villages and further afield in Norfolk.  They are totally our own picks and we have not been paid to advertise these.  Bon appetite!
