Carricks at Castle Farm

Multiple award-winning country farmhouse…

The eco-friendly luxury farmhouse is set in beautiful Arts & Crafts landscaped gardens with river access and planned walks for Wolsey Lodge guests to enjoy. Set amidst a working farm in a conservation area, this superb bed and breakfast dates back over 350 years, with later extensions by famous Norfolk architect Thomas Jeckel.

Inside, the house is traditionally furnished with antiques and heirlooms from the Carrick family, farmers here since the 1920s. An open fire for colder days and terrace with river views for guests to enjoy tea or just relax while appreciating summer and autumn sunsets.

The guest bedrooms are airy and lavishly furnished with antiques and all manner of luxuries including fine linens, toiletries, bathrobes, ironing and tea/coffee facilities, television, plus ample heat and hot water from the sustainable fuel source. This place is serenely quiet (excepting the occasional goose, owl or fox!).

Delicious breakfasts served en famille, using home-produced ingredients and preserves are relaxed and set Wolsey Lodge B&B guests up for the day. By special arrangement, equally good evening meals are available too.

Your B&B Hosts

John and Jean Carrick are passionate about the environment and sustainability, and they farm rare breed animals and poultry under Higher Level Stewardship. A warm welcome, fabulous food, first-hand insight into this stunningly beautiful area, plus recommendations for places and local hostelries to visit, (including their own) are just a few of the reasons why guests return time and again to this excellent luxury, eco-friendly farmhouse B&B.


This is the ideal place for rest and relaxation or to explore a beautiful part of Norfolk. Dereham and Norwich are nearby and the Broads and the North Norfolk Coast less than an hour. Sporting enthusiasts can enjoy walking, cycling, canoeing, fishing and it’s perfect for bird watching or painting. With numerous gardens and National Trust properties, museums, steam railways, abbeys and cathedrals to explore, there’s something here for all the family to enjoy.
