About Rachel Morris

We are a family from Cambridge who bought this house as a weekend and holiday getaway. It's a home from home for us.

Rachel Morris purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Rachel Morris chose Little Walsingham

It is so close to the best that Norfolk can offer - beautiful beaches of Holkham, fish and chips at Wells, crabbing at Blakeney and amazing cycling and gastro pubs. What more could we ask?

What makes this cottage unique

The house is situated in a vibrant village, with the local shop and pub just a stone's throw away. Little Walsingham is truly unique and is a wonderful ancient pilgrimage town,

Amazing house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for a girls weekend away and absolutely loved it. The house is very well layed out and has plenty of space in both the bedrooms and communal rooms (lounge, kitchen etc). It is a beautiful house with lots of lovely features and even things down to the quality of the bedding ensured we had a perfect stay.

We visited the local pub for lunch the day we arrived and the food was great, we also used the local fish and chip shop with was good value for money.

Although the village is very quiet it is in a great location to visit nearby Wells & Holkham.

Would definitely stay at this property again.

Wonderful Cottage in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely surprise this period cottage was! We stayed for a week over the Easter break and this Cottage was perfect for 2 families to share. Plenty of room with all the facilities we needed and the garden was very welcome for 5 children to run around in! We particularly loved the lounge area with a huge original fireplace - which we used every evening. The Village of Walsingham is perfectly located to explore Norfolk and the Village itself has a really nice Gastro pub in it which is only a 5 minute walk away, we had a lovely meal there one evening and popped in for a quick drink after a day out a few times. The age of the house made it feel truly special and we will definitely be back one day - Thanks Rachel!

A proper Norfolk house, very well presented and equipped, comfortable and homely.

  • 5 of 5

The house is in the beautiful and historic village of Walsingham, set away from the coast but close to all the beautiful seaside villages. The accommodation was perfect, very comfortable. I felt very rested after my short break!

A wonderful house in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family holiday in your home. Everything was clean and tidy upon arrival and the house was very welcoming with plenty of space for a large group.

The location of the house was ideal for us being in Little Walsingham which had all local amenities and was close to Wells, Holt, Blakeney etc.

I would highly recommend to anybody looking for a house in the area
