Our unique ground floor rooms are sympathetically converted old farm outbuildings, each  with an individual entrance onto a courtyard.  All four rooms are spacious with en-suite shower rooms, complimentary beverage trays and individual heating.  We offer the combination of high quality four star accommodation and a relaxing and informal stay in this lovely part of South Norfolk.  We serve breakfast in a converted barn, overlooking mature gardens and open fields.  Enjoy a traditional English breakfast, lingering over the delights of locally sourced food and the atmosphere of a log fire on colder mornings or dine ‘alfresco’ on the terrace in fine weather.

South Lopham is centrally placed to explore East Anglia and is an ideal base for anyone visiting the area either for business or pleasure by car, bike or on foot.  Diss market town, Bressingham Steam Museum, Banham Zoo, Snetterton Race Track, a number of country parks and a whisky distillery are all 15 minutes or less from Pansthorne B&B.  In under an hour you can drive to the east coast, Norwich, Bury St Edmunds or the Norfolk Broads.

Church Farm House is a Grade II listed building, its oldest part dating from around 1570. One of its special listing features are the 18th century windows, allowing plenty of natural light to pour into the house.

You are welcome to relax in the living room, reading or enjoying some music — we expect you to make yourself at home. On colder evenings there is nothing quite so enchanting as a log fire in the inglenook, the traditional days end in a thatched Norfolk farm house.

You’ll be staying in one of the three guest bedrooms situated on the first floor, bearing the names of composers — as seems fitting for the home of two musicians. Vivaldi is a single bedroom with a large ensuite shower room, Verdi is a twin bedroom with ensuite bath, and Rossini features a four poster bed and ensuite shower. The bedrooms are very different in character, but all feature hand painted Hindelopen decoration and a wonderful view of St. Nicholas Church.

Please take every opportunity to enjoy the grounds, a splendid array of colour and variety during most of the year. Relax in the conservatory if the weather doesn’t invite you outside, or choose from the garden benches, the swing, or the terrace furniture to soak up some sunshine and listen to the sound of water babbling in one of the ponds.
