About Limes Farm Cottage

Winners of the Broads Tourism Award 2018 (Norfolk and Suffolk Tourism Awards)

Limes Farm Cottage is a charming thatched period holiday cottage providing a high standard of self-catering accommodation for up to four guests and is ideal for families or couples. Winning a number of awards, including the Green Tourism Gold Award, Limes Farm Cottage offers everything you could want from a country retreat.

The cottage sits in a peaceful spot on a former working farm around a ten-minute walk from Ludham village where two great pubs, The Dog and The Kings Arms, offer a relaxed alternative if you don’t feel like cooking. Limes Farm Cottage is spacious enough for four guests but cosy enough for two, and with a single ground floor bedroom, it is a good option for those who prefer to not climb stairs.

Ludham makes an excellent base for your Norfolk holiday, being close to the Broads and within easy reach of the spectacular coastline. There are several lovely footpaths and cycle paths leading through and around the village, but one of the nicest ways to explore the local area is to hire a boat or kayak for the day. Nearby How Hill with its Electric Eel Water Trail Boat Trip and Toad Hole Cottage Museum is a favourite destination for a day out for the whole family.

It may be in the heart of the Broads, surrounded by marshes and nature reserves, but part of the beauty of Ludham is that it is not far from the coast. The nearest beach, Sea Palling, is around ten miles away. It has Blue Flag status and lifeguards in the summer, making it popular for swimming and sailing. Also within a thirty minute drive are Cart Gap Beach, Horsey (much loved for its seal colonies) and Winterton-on-Sea. Great Yarmouth and Cromer are a scenic drive from the cottage, or you could also visit Happisburgh or Mundesley.

Historic Norwich is around thirty minutes by car from Limes Farm Cottage. It is a fantastic city with a magnificent cathedral, the Plantation Gardens, Castle Museum and Art Gallery, and an extensive array of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. Bewilderwood, Wroxham Barns Farm and Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens are all popular with families with young children and are just a short drive away.

The Norfolk Broads have been attracting visitors for centuries, and you will understand why when you see its beautiful scenery for yourself. It doesn't matter if your perfect holiday involves non-stop action or slowing right down, and whether you love to cook or your idea of heaven is tasting freshly-caught seafood in out-of-the-way places, you will find a warm welcome at Limes Farm Cottage.

Location (The Norfolk Broads)

The former farm worker’s home has been skilfully renovated to sleep up to four guests in three bedrooms. The owners have been awarded a Gold Green Tourism Award for the many eco-friendly touches in Limes Farm Cottage, including the use of geothermal heating, electricity-generating solar panels and carbon neutral wood burning stoves.

Accommodation Comprises:


  • Entry is via a rose-covered porch into a spacious, light-filled home. Tiled floors make it practical for muddy walking boots, while under floor heating maintains a comfortable temperature.
  • In the sitting room, exposed oak beams contrast with fresh white walls, and leather couches offer comfortable seating facing the wood burning stove. There is a flat-screen television with DVD player and a selection of games and books for relaxed family fun.
  • The kitchen/dining room is wonderfully spacious with a tiled floor and custom designed, hand-crafted kitchen. There is a breakfast bar, dining table and chairs to seat six, and a couch. The kitchen is equipped with everything to make self-catering for families a joy including a dishwasher, double fridge, freezer, cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery. Cooks can use the double-oven range or the modern combination oven and hob. French doors open onto the rear patio and garden. A washing machine and tumble dryer are also in the kitchen.
  • One of the property's two single bedrooms is downstairs and furnished with a comfortable bed, bedside table with reading light, and good quality linen.
  • The large wet room is a lovely modern addition that makes the property suitable for those with mobility issues. In addition to a walk-in shower, it features a large hand basin and WC.


  • The master double bedroom is tastefully decorated with warming neutral shades. It boasts an ensuite bathroom with large roll top bath, hand basin and WC.
  • Tucked away under the eaves on the top floor is a charming single bedroom with fantastic views from the dormer window. This room is open to the landing and reached by a flight of paddle stairs.

Outside: Limes Farm Cottage is set on a former working farm. It has a private, fenced garden laid mainly to lawn with fruit trees and a paved patio and barbeque area. There is off-street parking and an EV charging point.

Additional Information: Limes Farm Cottage has free WiFi. All utilities, linen, and a welcome basket of logs for the wood burner are included in the price. Dogs may be accepted by prior agreement with the owners.
