An enchanting country escape

In search of peace and quiet? Then look no further!  Manor House Farm offers all that you could possibly wish for in luxury accommodation. Your hosts Libby and Robin Ellis have transformed their family home into an utterly beautiful bed and breakfast, with a garden that visitors flock to see whenever it is open under the National Gardens Scheme.

In the main house there are two guest bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms, and a further bedroom that has a private bathroom. As befits a period property, each room has been individually decorated, but furnishings are luxurious, ensuring absolute comfort. There is further B&B accommodation in a beautifully converted Stable Wing: these comprise a double and a twin, both en-suite, which share a spacious sitting room with a wood burning stove and a small kitchen to make light refreshments. This makes the Stable Wing ideal for friends meeting up or travelling together, and for further flexibility the twin room here has been designed to be wheelchair friendly.

Delicious, hearty breakfasts are served in the family’s elegant Dining Room at the front of the main house. Eggs, bacon and sausages from the farm are cooked on the Aga and served alongside homemade jams and compotes made with garden fruits.

Opened every year as part of the NGS, the four-acre garden offers a series of different spaces which surround the house on three sides. The unusual walled ‘Taj’ garden is a highlight; complete with formal carp pond, old-fashioned roses and tree peonies. Leading away from the house is a fragrant tunnel of roses with a pleached lime walk beyond: it’s little surprise the garden has featured in Country Life, Garden Illustrated, Country Living and countless other magazines both here and abroad.

Manor House Farm B&B suggests

Bring your own horse. Manor House Farm has been home to countless horses, from ponies to serious eventers, and it has stabling for half a dozen – and grazing for more. Holkham Beach is great for beach rides and is 20 minutes drive away.

Manor House Farm is perfectly located for exploring all that Norfolk has to offer. Situated in the tiny village of Wellingham it is within easy reach of the beautiful North Norfolk coast with stunning beaches at Holkham and Wells and the Medieval city of Norwich which is full of independent shops and restaurants. Norfolk is well known for its historic buildings and stately homes with Oxburgh Hall and the Royal Sandringham estate within half an hour's drive. Closer to home Houghton Hall is a ten minute drive away, and there are numerous scenic countryside walks, quaint pubs and pretty hamlets to explore.


“There is such a lot to experience, explore and enjoy. The gardens surrounding the property were wonderful and it all added to the high quality and standard of what was available to us to enjoy whilst we were staying”
