Ketlam View & Coach House offer the perfect solution for an exclusive stay for 14 guests in two beautiful holiday homes showcasing characteristics unique to the county. Ketlam View, built in the 1780’s from local carrstone (a particular feature of this area), is an attractive and luxuriously appointed farmhouse, perfect for a larger family or group of friends wishing to enjoy a holiday retreat in the beautiful countryside of north west Norfolk. The Old Coach House, also built from local carrstone, is located in the grounds of Ketlam View, and has recently been transformed into a comfortable, single storey three-bedroom chalet.  Both properties have been lovingly finished with elegant interiors and modern appliances, while retaining the traditional charm and character of these historic buildings.  

Across both properties, two living rooms and a cosy snug, with inglenook fireplace and two log burners, provide plenty of space to relax after a day exploring the Norfolk countryside and coast. Located on the grounds are a range of recreational facilities, including a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna, as well as a games room for table tennis, table football and darts. The gardens are large, mature and fully enclosed with patio areas providing the perfect environment for barbeques and al fresco dining. Children can play on two double swings and slides and explore the hidden corners of the gardens along with any four-legged family members who are most welcome.

The surrounding area offer views over fields as well as the picturesque river and woodland walks nearby. The historic market town of Swaffham and the medieval town of Kings Lynn with its attractive waterfront are each 7 miles away and offer a wide array of shops and restaurants. The Queens Sandringham Estate is just 10 miles away and a further 5 miles takes you to sweeping sandy beaches and coastal paths. For further details of both properties please see the separate listings for Ketlam View (1516) and The Old Coach House (1517). Shops: Norfolk Woods Resort Shop & Bistro 1.5 miles, Waitrose and Tesco at Swaffham 7 miles Pub: The Stag at West Acre 4.5 miles

Pentney lies just 15 miles from the North Norfolk Coast which is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Your choice of excellent sandy beaches is huge, the Coastal Path is great for walking and if you are feeling more energetic you could pick up the Pedders Way Walk. There are many nature reserves in the area, these along with the RSPB sites at Titchwell and Holme ensure that bird lovers will have a wonderful time. The sandy beaches of Snettisham, Heacham and Hunstanton are the closest, but a short drive across country makes Thornham and Brancaster accessible. Do take a visit to Sandringham, the Queen's home whilst in Norfolk. The house and grounds are well worth a visit and the Park is excellent for walking and off-road cycling - particularly safe for children. The local area offers wonderful woodland and river walks, excellent walking can also be found close at hand and the Quiet Lanes scheme in Norfolk offers good cycling in and around the village. Fly fishing and coarse fishing are available at the nearby Narborough trout and coarse lakes. Many places of historical interest lie in the surrounding area, including Castle Rising, Castle Acre Priory ruins, Houghton and Oxburgh Halls, Walsingham Abbey and Shrine ruins. Don't overlook Kings Lynn, the old town and harbour area are well worth a visit and of course the fuller facilities of a large town, restaurants, theatre and cafes are available.


Great place for a large family gathering, with the added bonus of the pool, sauna and games room, which attracted us to this property. It is in a remote location, with views across the fields. Plenty of places to walk the dogs too, but in winter bring wellies!

Mrs M,

We rented both properties for four nights for family coming from Ireland to attend our daughter's wedding at nearby Pentney Abbey. We found both houses to be of a very high standard, spacious and most comfortable. The large dining table in Ketlam View was perfect for our family meals of up,to 12 people. Unfortunately we did not have time to enjoy the swimming pool and sauna.

Mrs M,

An extremely comfortable property. Felt very homely and a perfect location.

Mrs E,

We booked this property for a large group of 10 adults and 4 children. We fit comfortably in to both properties. The setting is lovely and only 15 minutes drive from supermarkets and local towns. We didn't intend to venture far and didn't have to, the property had everything we needed and the swimming pool and sauna is a great selling point for the property. Overall, a great holiday had by all, would definitely return.

Mr D,

A lovely location with great facilities, especially the indoor pool and sauna.

Mr G,
