About The Buttery

The Buttery is a welcoming barn conversion on a family-run farm in the Wensum Valley. It's perfectly located for exploring the idyllic Norfolk countryside, the county's spectacular beaches, and the beautiful Norfolk Broads National Park. The converted barn sleeps four people in two bedrooms and is ideal for couples, families or friends. The Buttery is one of three gorgeous self-catering cottages at Sparham Hall Farm, where the owners grow a mix of arable crops and have a small herd of cows. The cottages are all self-contained and can be booked together to accommodate extended families or groups of friends who want a holiday together without sacrificing their privacy and personal space.

Sparham Hall Farm could almost be a holiday destination itself! This peaceful slice of countryside contains a diverse landscape of lakes (including catch-and-release fishing lakes), water meadows, woods and fields. The River Wensum runs through the property, which has a wide variety of flora and fauna that includes rare orchids, otters, and (at last count) 210 types of birds and butterflies, dragonflies and moths.

Local attractions include beWILDerwood, Roaar! Dinosaur Adventure, and Pensthorpe Natural Park. Forget generic supermarkets and do your shopping at Algys Farm Shop and the Lyng Village Store, both of which sell an excellent range of local produce. Save at least one meal to have at the friendly Fox pub in Lyng, about a mile from the cottage. Their drinks menu is a delight to any real ale connoisseur, and their delicious seasonal menu will give you a welcome break from cooking. Walking, cycling and golf are other wonderful ways to explore.

One of the many reasons The Buttery is a favourite holiday cottage for families is that there is so much to do in a relatively small radius. The beautiful beaches of the Norfolk coast are just over half an hour's drive away. Take your bucket and space to Sheringham or settle back on the sand with a succulent lobster roll at Cromer. Norwich is also around half an hour from Sparham Hall Farm cottages. It's a stunning medical city with a wonderful array of shops, cafes, restaurants, and incredible attractions. Another day out could include boating along the spectacular Norfolk Broads. Wroxham and the Bure Marshes National Nature Reserve are about 25 minutes away.

The Buttery is super-stylish with lots of subtle touches that make it welcoming and comfortable for visitors who use a wheelchair. Please see the accessibility guide on the owner's website.
