Details

The bricks of the Victorian farmhouse, the boundaries of the fields and the curve of the River Wensum define what we are all about and what we have to offer. Guests tell us that coming to Castle Farm is a civilised step back in time. Our house and our rooms boast every modern luxury, it is true but it is the overwhelming sense of timelessness that makes us different, that is our identity.

Wake early and walk the river. Take a book on the lawns during the day, or a drink to the riverbank in the evening and you won’t hear traffic, only the rooks perhaps, the call of an owl, the occasional ‘crawk’ of a goose or the heavy breathing of the farm cattle in the farmyard pen.

Yes. If it weren’t for the heating, the hot water, the luxurious beds, the flat screen TVs, the Wi-Fi and the super food, you could think you had wandered back more than half a century to a time more serene, less frantic and by many, much missed.

Our guests often say that to come to Carrick’s is to come home and we love that one, too. You start out guests but you leave our friends. After all, our only rule is switch off the lights before you go to bed!

We offer gorgeous rooms in a historic house all set in an idyllic riverside setting. Please read on and discover what more you can expect to find at Castle Farm.
