Farm house in Norfolk

We've just come back from a week at a farmhouse in north Norfolk with some friends and their children adn had such a great time that I thought I'd post a wee message recommending it.
We stayed in Dairy Farm, Dilham, near North Walsham. The accomodation was top notch: four bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom, a huge lounge with open fire, dining room with table to seat 12, large kitchen with dining area and utility room with all laundry equipment. Immediately outside the back door was a large pond with ducks, behind that were fields, fields and more fields full of cows, bulls, sheep and lambs. The garden was totally enclosed but big enough for a game of football and across the drive was a games room with table tennis, pool, bar football and a multigym.
In our group we had a 2 year old, a 4 year old, a 6 year old and an 8 year old. They all had a great time, at the farm house and also on a boat on the broads, at the tank museum, on the steam train, on the sand dunes, at the local park.
Sorry if I'm going on a bit here but it was just such a good week (the lovely weather helped obviously) that i wanted to pass it on.

McKenzie, almost snap! We've just come back from a lovely few days in north Norfolk, too. We nearly went to the tank museum (was it really good?) but did go on the steam train (tiny enchanting one at Wells next the sea) and on the sand dunes. We stayed in a friend's cottage in Reepham. As you say, there is lots to do and see in the area. The dinosaur park is well worth a visit if you're back.
We had such a good time that we're booking up to go again in August.

cant comment on the Tank museum as the boys did that while us lassies wandered around Burnham Market. Our friends stayed an extra day and went to the Dinosuar Park and they raved over it too.
I'd love to go back again next year but can't help thinking that there's so much of England that I haven't explored yet and that it would be rude to not try somewhere else. Fingers crossed that it will be a good.
