Welcome to Spring here at Olde Farm Holiday Cottages the days are getting longer and the gardens have woken up and are now teeming with colour and life now that the tulips, daffodils and other Spring flowers and plants have made their appearance. The birds are around singing, building their nests and digging for insects, the robin still visits each morning waiting on the picnic table for his breakfast and the owls hunt at night and are quite magnificent. The days are also getting warmer in the bursts of Spring sunshine and the star filled night skies are just breath taking. Our hens, the runner ducks, swans and moorhens wander freely exploring the gardens and have now started to lay aga...

Booked by the mum for a family wedding, nice cottage, a very quiet and relaxing place away from city life. Owners are friendly and welcoming too. If you like being close to nature, this is the place for you.

About the neighbourhood
Banham is a very pretty, small village with its own village green and lovely church. In times gone by it was better known for its brick, tile and chimney manufacturing and the world famous cider producing company Gaymer and Son. You can still taste several fruit beers and ciders at the Garden House pub about a mile from the cottage. The sign on the village green reflects it's history as it shows kiln, a cider press and an apple tree.

Close by we have the famous Banham Zoo, the Snetterton racing circuit, which hosts regular events, the beautiful medieval town of Norwich, the Bressingham Steam Museum and many more attractions which you will find full details of in the cottage. Within walking distance is the village of Old Buckenham with it's enormous village green, thatched ch...
