A fabulous and truly unique opportunity to stay on the beautiful Holkham estate in a 200-year-old stylish Georgian farm manager's house. Enjoy an idyllic farm setting, with views to die for, and where only the sounds of nature are likely to disturb the peace.
Grade II listed, The Tack House is a very special Norfolk hideaway located just a ten-minute walk away from the South Gates, parkland and Long Avenue that sweeps down to glorious Holkham Hall. If you love walking, cycling and fresh air and relish calm and rural living, this is the perfect place for you. Add very easy access to the stunning beaches along the Norfolk coastline (Holkham's own beauty is just the other side of the park) and you have hit gold!
Refurbished in 2018, a great deal of consideration has gone into ensuring this spacious period country house has retained an essence of grandeur and elegance. The addition of a stylish mix of contemporary and antique furniture along with an eclectic selection of artworks from the art dealer owner's private collection enhance The Tack House’s individual character and bring it to life. You will find it to be a rather smart, but casual, easy and unfussy house that is comfortable and well-equipped, with rooms that are airy and bright. And there is certainly ample room for everyone to ‘spread out’.
On the first floor are three bedrooms (super-king, king/twin and single), all with extra comfy beds and lovely linens, and two bathrooms. The magnificent private master suite runs the width of the house and has a separate seating area, dressing room and large adjoining bathroom. Downstairs there is a generous-sized farmhouse kitchen with two electric Aga options, a lovely sitting room with a wood burning stove and windows overlooking the garden, along with a cosy snug enjoying views across the fields - an ideal spot for curling up with a book, working (if you must) or enjoying a television programme or film all to yourself. Oil-fired radiators keep the house cosy in the cooler months. Outside the enclosed and private courtyard garden has a covered seating area, a fire pit and a full-sized table tennis table to keep you entertained.
The Tack House is a very much a ‘grown-up’ property but well-behaved children and dogs are very welcome to stay. Babes in arms are welcome too and there is a high chair, travel cot and stair gate available on request.
Two well-behaved dogs are welcome, at a charge of £50/dog.
Travel cot, high chair and stair gate are all available. Please request on booking. NB: Bedding for the travel cot is not supplied.
The WiFi signal should be good, though download speeds may be variable.
Both Agas will be electric from 20/5/19.
