About The Apple Room

The Apple Room is a blissful rural escape in the heart of the Norfolk countryside. The one-bedroom cottage is on the picturesque Sparham Hall Farm near Pockthorpe in the Wensum Valley, providing everything couples or solo travellers could wish for in a self-catering cottage. There are three lovely cottages on the farm. Each is entirely private and self-contained and can be booked together to accommodate extended families or groups of friends. The location is perfect for exploring not only the countryside but also the Norfolk Broads and the stunning coastline. The Fox at Lyng pub is a mile away for lazy afternoons with a pint and a pub lunch and nights when you would rather not cook.

Sparham Hall Farm is a gorgeous location for a relaxing holiday in any season. It is a traditional, family-run working farm where the owners grow crops and farm cattle. The environment is as diverse as it is beautiful with a mix of water meadows, fields, lakes and the nearby River Wensum. The owners and their guests have recorded an impressive 210 different bird and 450 plant species, as well as a wide variety of butterflies, dragonflies and other insects. Guests are welcome to walk around the lakes and grass borders on the farm, giving the opportunity to see otters and rare orchids. There is catch-and-release fishing on-site - weekly passes are available from the owner.

Your itinerary can be as full as you like. Local attractions include beWILDerwood, Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure, and Pensthorpe Natural Park. Shop for supplies at places like Algy's Farm Shop and the Lyng Village Store. Both are well-stocked with locally produced fresh food and drink. The farm is less than half an hour's drive from Norwich, a medieval city rich with heritage and culture as well as a wide choice of places to eat, drink and shop. Spend a day at the seaside resort towns of Cromer or Sheringham or head for the breathtaking Norfolk Broads and picturesque places like Wroxham and the Bure Marshes National Nature Reserve.

Walking, cycling, golf, fishing, boating, and a wealth of other activities are easily accessible to enable you to enjoy this gorgeous landscape to its fullest. The Apple Room is available for bookings all year round.
