A sumptuous North Norfolk self-catering property with less emphasis on the 'self'!

There's something about the Norfolk countryside that is special. Maybe it's the fact that (like Cornwall) it's not on the way to anywhere –  when you reach the North Norfolk coast you have literally reached the end of the road. Maybe it's the gentle beauty of its understated, intensely rural landscape. However, one thing is for sure, due to its many and varied country estates, Norfolk is full of terrific places to stay in amazing locations – and none more so than Godwick Hall.

Situated in the heart of the north Norfolk countryside between Fakenham and Swaffham, Godwick Hall is the ultimate Norfolk country estate – basically a handsome Georgian house set within 100 acres of grounds that is an ideal spot for a big group get-together or idyllic family holiday. Sleeping up to 22 guests in a fair degree of luxury, its location is gloriously secluded, with only the deserted estate village of Godwick for company, yet is close enough to be an ideal base for seeing the considerable attractions of this part of Norfolk – at Castle Acre, Sandringham, Holkham Bay and Wells-next-the-Sea. The house has seven bedrooms, each individually furnished like a high-end hotel, with super-comfy Hypnos beds with quality linen, Smart TVs and wifi, Nespresso coffee machines and en-suite bathrooms with underfloor heating, plunge showers and – in two of the rooms – baths as well. They serve breakfast every morning so you can be as lazy as you like, and there's a heated swimming pool open during June–September, a large sitting room with open fire, a games room with a snooker table, table football and darts, a comfy conservatory with plenty of seating and a big and very well-equipped country kitchen for cooking up an evening feast. They even have three shepherds huts to accommodate any overflow – or for those who prefer to be closer to nature!

Unlike most self-catering properties, there are staff on hand to help you make the most of your stay: they can put you in touch with private chefs and caterers if you can't be bothered to cook or want to celebrate a special occasion, and also providers of activities that include clay-pigeon shooting, archery, spa treatments and suchlike. In any case, Godwick's grounds are a wonderful place to wander, exploring the park and woodland and the deserted estate village (either by yourself or on a guided tour with the owner James Garner). Beyond, you are well placed for walks or bike rides into the Norfolk countryside, either north towards the coast or south towards the abbey ruins at Castle Acre. There's even a terrific pub, the Brisley Bell, that serves excellent food and is within walking distance to the east. What more could you possibly want?
