An attractive period farmhouse in an unspoilt rural village


The small peaceful village of Wood Dalling lies in an area of unspoilt open countryside bordering the Heydon Estate. The delightful and utterly unspoilt estate village of Heydon (1½ miles) has a well regarded public house and fine 14th century church. The larger village of Reepham (4 miles) has excellent everyday shopping facilities as well as a highly regarded secondary school which now has its own sixth form.

The property is equidistant from the market town of Aylsham bordered by the Blickling Estate in the care of The National Trust and Holt, also 8 miles, which has excellent shopping facilities with many thriving independent shops as well as being renowned as the home of Greshams school. The North Norfolk coast at Cley-next-the-Sea is a further 3 miles to the north of Holt. Norwich, the Cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia, lies about 16 miles to the south.


The Old Jolly Farmers is a picturesque period property, originally a farmhouse and dating from the 18th century with alterations in the 19th century. For many years, as the name suggests, the property was the village public house.

The house was acquired by the current owners in 2014 and has since then been the subject of a significant programme of restoration and refurbishment. Much work has been carried out including upgrading of the plumbing and heating installations, provision of new bathrooms as well as complete redecoration both internally and externally. The house has spacious and well arranged accommodation, as can be seen from the floorplans, with a large main reception room, a dining room and a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room. There are five bedrooms, two bathrooms and a shower room on the first floor and a useful separate ground floor annexe. Most of the rooms overlook the delightful south-facing partly walled garden.

The house is approached from the northwest by a shared gravelled drive, entered through a five bar field gate, and this leads to an extensive gravelled parking area situated to the rear and north of the house.

Situated to the south of the house there is a most attractive lawned garden with a paved terrace adjoining the house to the south and steps leading up to the formal lawned garden. There are some fine shrubs and ornamental trees including flowering cherry, a judas tree, clipped box and yew and the garden is bounded by a fine red brick wall to the west. The garden in all extends to 0.28 of an acre (est).
