The villa is a square, Georgian, pale brick house situated in very extensive grounds. It has a walled garden with large borders, a parterre, a small arboretum and paved terraces with garden furniture on three sides for the capture of sunshine at all times of the day.

There is a hard tennis court and an outdoor swimming pool (heated 1st April to 30th October). It has stables and outbuildings, one containing a table tennis table in a lit but unheated space. Another contains bicycles for use of the guests.

The local village of Great Hockham is in the centre of the Brecklands, an area of environmental sensitivity. Within 500m of the house is Thetford Forest Park, 50,000 acres of woodland offering bike and walking trails. Within the Forest is a high wire forest experience. In close proximity to the house is the Peddars Way, a Roman road which joins the Norfolk Coastal Path providing 96.5 miles of walks through National Nature Trails. This consists of leafy paths and tree-lined trails.

The village has a public house and local shops can be found at Watton, a market town 6 miles away. The Georgian town of Wymondham is a 15 minute drive and offers a variety of boutiques and gift shops. Norwich is 25 minutes by car as is the Georgian town of Bury St Edmunds. Newmarket, with its two racecourses and busy racing calendar, is a 30 minute drive. The famous beaches of Brancaster and Holkham are about 30 miles away. The historic houses and gardens of Norfolk are within easy reach.
