Returned home yesterday from a fantastic weekend away at Walnut House. Me and my partner, and 3 other couples try to have a couple of weekend get togethers each year, and we have stayed in this type of accommodation a few times. I have to say that Walnut House is up there with the best of them..from the moment we pulled up at the electric gates to the property, where the Owners, Chris & Wendy were there to warmly greet us, and then give us a guided tour of the place, we felt as ease and made very welcome. They are a delightful couple who clearly take pride in what they do. After being shown around the property,we allocated each couple a bedroom, and so began a weekend of lovely relaxation,in a fantastic location. The house is large, but retains a feel of coziness, each room is tastefully decorated, and spotlessly clean, with 4 en-suite rooms, and 1 twin room, with a bathroom right next door. The main living area, and the bedrooms are upstairs, but the is a lift just inside the front door, so very wheelchair/elderly accessible. The upstairs living area opens onto a large balcony, which has lovely views overlooking the local countryside. There is plenty of room out there to sit and relax. The spacious kitchen is well equipped- the Owners seem to have thought of everything that might be required-and there is a large dining table which comfortably seats all guests. Downstairs there is a games/ chill out room with a bar area, pool table, dart board, and large screen TV, and this leads on to a fantastic indoor pool, which is lovely, and not too deep. Men and women's changing rooms and toilets are here too- all of them spotless. Just outside the pool area is the hot tub- a favourite with us all, lovely and warm, and sooo relaxing. Probably missed a few things out, but have to say I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice relaxing break or get together with friends etc. We will definitely be going back!!
Excellent house for a large (ish) get together. House was very spacious, all bedrooms were very large, including 4 en suites. Plenty of on site activities to keep everyone entertained, the indoor heated pool was the real favourite. The lift was a great thing to have for anyone that may struggle with stairs. Set in a good sized plot, great views and sunsets from the top balcony. Owners were on hand to assist with anything you may need, although they never 'interfered' with your weekend. Great location with easy access to some main roads for going out visiting, if you wish too, we never we made full use of the house and its facilities. Would definitely recommend.
Stayed here from the 11th-18th Feb and had an amazing week! From the minute we got here we were blown away, we was greeted by the lovely Wendy who did the tour and she was very accommodating! All the bedroom was lovely and spacious with there own en-suite, kitchen area, dining room and living area upstairs was big enough for our party of 10 never felt like you was in the way of anyone! Downstairs games room swimming pool was amazing for everyone, the kids loved the swimming pool and spent most of the day in the pool! when the kids were in bed the adults were having pool party's too! we went out a few times to Great Yarmouth and Lowerstoft beach just for a walk and some fresh air but overall we would of all been happy to stay in and make the most of the house!! Definitely recommend this to anyone lovely house and you definitely wouldn't be disappointed!! Hoping to return again soon in the future with the whole family!!
Our family of 6 adults and 4 children aged 2, 5, 11 and 14 years, had a truly action packed, wonderful time at Walnut House. In fact, thanks to the very thoughtful and generous owners and lovely attention to detail, it was the perfect place for one of the best family New Year celebrations ever!
We arrived on a late foggy afternoon and the lovely owners Wendy and Chris were there to greet us with warm smiles and friendly hugs and we immediately felt at home. The house was unbelievably spacious, yet felt cosy and warm. There were very efficient electric wall heaters throughout which Wendy and Chris generously allow their guests to control themselves. Each of the five bedrooms was well laid out with tasteful colour coordinated decor, four had ensuite facilities and there was also a main bathroom.
We had a very thoughtful food basket to welcome us on arrival, as well as milk and bottled water in the fridge. The games room was also a winner with everyone and was well used, as was the bar area (especially on 31st December!). The pool was first class, clean and well maintained, with warm water at a safe depth of 4 feet (so nanny was pleased!). The changing rooms were also clean and roomy. Oh and the outside hot tub...bliss!
The balcony, accessed from the upstairs living area, and the well kept, mature garden look to be great places to sit in the warmer weather. All in all, Walnut House is a clean, well maintained, well managed and well loved property. Thank you Wendy and Chris, you certainly deserve your prestigious awards, including the highly acclaimed Rose Award!
