College Farm is a beautiful medieval house situated in the village of Thompson three miles from the market town of Watton. It was built by Katharine’s ancestors in 1349 as a College of Priests to serve St Martin’s Church and the villagers of Thompson. The college was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1541 when it then became a private house.
College Farm sits in 15 acres of lawns and woodland on the edge of the village and is the perfect secluded venue for your wedding reception or private party. B&B accommodation is also available in newly refurbished en suite rooms at £100 per room per night.
The Jacobean panelled room is licenced for weddings and civil partnerships and is also available for parties up to 24 people. Traditional cream teas are served in the garden (weather permitting) or by the fire in the panelled dining room if it’s too cold to sit outside. All food served at College Farm is organic and home-made or locally sourced. There is plenty of car parking in an adjacent field.
We have a field available for camping and there is also plenty of parking in another field.
