The Tack House holiday home details

The Tack House is a fabulous Grade II listed property set in an idyllic location with stunning views of the beautiful Holkham Estate in North Norfolk. Formerly a 200 year old Georgian farm manager's house, this property has been lovingly and stylishly restored and 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.

On the first floor are three bedrooms all with extra comfy beds and lovely linen, 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 both oil and electric Aga option, a lovely sitting room with log burner and windows overlooking the garden and a cosy snug enjoying views across the fields - an ideal spot for curling up with a good book. 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.

Located just a short walk from the South Gates and rolling parkland, you could take the Long Avenue that sweeps down to the magnificent Holkham Hall. A walker's and cyclist dream where you can relish the fresh air and calm rural living.
