Meadow Farm is located in countryside to the northeast of the village of Garvestone, which has a thriving village school and a nearby pub, The Mustard Pot. The village is approximately 4 miles to the south of the historic market town of Dereham where there is a good range of shopping including a Tesco superstore, primary and secondary education, and leisure facilities. The popular town of Wymondham is about 7½ miles to the south, which has a Waitrose supermarket, education including the renowned Wymondham College, and a railway service to both Norwich and Cambridge.

Further education within daily reach of the property is at Greshams, Taverham Hall and Langley.

Norwich, the Cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia, is approximately 14 miles to the east and provides a comprehensive range of shopping, education and leisure facilities and a regular rail service to London Liverpool Street, with the expanding Norwich airport on the northern side of the city which provides flights to both domestic and international destinations.

The property is conveniently positioned for both the A11 and A47.


Meadow Farm is a quietly positioned period farmhouse, rurally situated with a good range of outbuildings and stabling and set within 4.6 acres (est) of mature gardens and grounds including paddocks.

Enjoying a south facing aspect, the house has well arranged accommodation over two floors and has been improved and extended during the current ownership. The works have included a substantial two storey extension to add a delightful dual-aspect drawing room, with open Jetmaster and French doors out to the garden, and a master bedroom above this with en-suite bathroom. Also on the ground floor is a sitting room, study, breakfast room with Aga, kitchen, utility/boot room, larder and cloakroom. The are five bedrooms in total, with two double bedrooms and two single bedrooms in addition to the master bedroom, and a family bathroom.

To the east of the house is the range of outbuildings, comprising a large central barn measuring 34'4" x 15'3" with associated stores off this. Adjoining the main barn is a substantial open fronted hay barn and two separate car ports. A further single storey outbuilding to the north is currently an office but would be suitable for a variety of uses.

In addition to the main outbuildings are the stabling, chicken shed and further stores.

Meadow Farm is approached from the south, through a wooden five bar gate onto a long drive through the paddocks and up to a gravelled parking and turning area adjoining the house and barns.

The gardens and grounds are a particularly attractive feature of the property, with the main lawns surrounding the house and stretching away to the west, with herbaceous borders, shrubberies and wisteria and climbing roses trained to the house. Also to the west is a fruit cage and established orchard.

To the south of the house and gardens is a large post and railed paddock, with three further paddocks to the east and southeast of the house, all established grazing.

A further grassed area links the outbuildings with the stabling, and to a vegetable garden and greenhouse.
