A cottage for you
All buildings have been developed to be in keeping with the original rural buildings that date back to the mid 18th century.
The cottages are built around a courtyard where guests can barbecue, and eat under a covered dining area.
The purpose-built Cape Cottage, is specially designed to accommodate guests with physical disabilities complete with wet room and ground floor facilities, with outside parking.
The complex was developed and run by Jill Nicholls, who lives on site.
Lower Wood Farm’s mission is to offer every guest a high quality superbly comfortable friendly home-from-home with every added extra guest could wish for – even the facilities to call in outside caterers for that special occasion.
Plenty to see
For every guest, a warm Norfolk welcome of homemade cakes and tea awaits when they arrive to help them relax into their new “home”.
For extra peace of mind for parents with young children, the cottages are at the end of a long private lane a mile from the road allowing children to run freely on the grounds.
Deer run wild across bordering fields and wild birds are abundant.
Lower Wood Farm even has its very own Springwatch with an owl box where people can watch the owls rear their young, flying back and forth with food and a large pond with ducks and geese.

WHAT OUR GUESTS HAVE TO SAY...
"Lower Wood Farm offers families excellent facilities. Our grandchildren couldn’t have been happier with the pool and play barn, and loved being allowed to try out the jacuzzi in our upstairs bedroom. The Farmhouse is a smart and comfortable holiday home for six people with everything you need for a weekend or longer stay.

"This was our fifth stay at this property. Location is near to many attractions. It is the swimming pool and games room that attracts our two grand children. There is plenty on site for youngsters of all ages. Lots of outdoor space and enough car parking. Jill and her team work very hard to ensure everything is in tip top condition."

"3 generations stayed in 2 cottages at Lower Wood Farm. We stayed at New Year. This review relates to the Appleloft. This 2 storey accommodation was comfortable, clean, well equipped and warm.
The location is good - close to Great Yarmouth and other seaside towns and villages.
The on-site facilities were excellent. The children loved the play barn and the adults enjoyed table tennis and snooker. I didn't use the swimming pool but other family members did and liked the booking arrangements and the pool itself.
The staff at Lower Wood Farm were friendly and helpful.
I recommend the Appleloft.

"We found the cottage very well equipped and extremely clean. The welcome note and afternoon tea was a lovely touch on arrival. It is a fantastic location to explore the beautiful beaches and the Broads. The owner was always available to contact if needed. The complex is beautifully maintained with plenty to do and the pool is a wonderful facility with bookable slots and shared slots available throughout the day. The owners have thought of everything to make the stay a home from home experience."

"Everything in the cottage is top quality and well maintained and the pool is also lovely. The pool shower and changing area could be better.
Hope to be back again sometime"
"We had a wonderful 5 nights at Lower Wood Farm staying in the stunning Braeburn Barn. The barn really has the ‘wow’ factor when you enter the living area and is very well equipped, we had everything we needed for our stay.
Our 6 year old and 1 year old loved the play barn, playground and swimming pool, all of which were well kept and really added to our experience… we spent one rainy day staying on site and had plenty to keep us all entertained!
We will definitely return and are very pleased to have found this gem in the Norfolk countryside."
