The Old Night Nurses Home, Gimingham


The quaint village of Gimingham has an antiquity predating the Domesday Book of 1086 and was formerly known as Gimingeham, which is believed to stem from the ‘Homestead of Gymma’s people.’ Gymma was an Anglo-Saxon warlord who settled in the area at some point in history between the 5th and 6th centuries. Artefacts discovered in the village propose that there has been human activity since the Neolithic ages, with flint and stone axe heads being unearthed.


The Old Night Nurses Home is a classic Edwardian Norfolk property, set within a fabulous and fetching area with an abundance of rich, unspoilt countryside views. The property is unlike the majority of houses for sale in Norfolk and has belonged to the same family for a lengthy duration.
