A farm which developed a homemade ice cream making business has applied to convert the farm house into two dwellings.

The owners Pound Farm, North Tuddenham, have applied to planners at Breckland Council to split the farm house in two and use one side of it as holiday accommodation.

Conversion work has already taken place and the application says the farm owner is seeking to 'regularise change of use'.

The overall size and scale of the building will not change.

The application has been supported by holiday accommodation company Farm Stay UK.

In a letter the company says: 'The farm has recently started a new enterprise, Norfolk Farmhouse Ice Cream, which allows their own milk, cream and free range eggs to be turned into quality products in a converted barn.

'There was an intention to offer ice cream making courses to the public and, for those interested, the plan was to offer accommodation in the holiday cottage.'

A previous application to split the house was refused by the council but that application did not propose to use half of the house as holiday accommodation.
