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 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,

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

Charming cottage in a beautiful village

  • 4 of 5

I stayed with a group of 9 friends over a two day weekend to celebrate a birthday and as soon as we walked through the door there was a chorus of 'oohs and ahhs' from all the guests. The cottage appears small at first with the front door opening to a small sitting room, but door after door opens up into a picturesque cottage, with a large living space, dining room and kitchen; boasting exposed beans, sash windows and log burning fires.

The house filled every need, with various seating areas, shower rooms and entertainment systems (TV, radio with iphone docking). The garden backs onto one of the many churches in the village with beautiful brickwork and gorgeous summer bouquets all around the garden. The bedrooms were perfectly sized, with the younger, more agile in the party opting for the bunk bed and z-bed.

The cottage is on the edge of the village but a 40m walk takes you to the first pub and only a little further on you find a second pub, a farm shop, a chocolate shop and the Norfolk Riddle restaurant, which is a must! Not to mention the churches and Abbey that fill the village....

If you are looking for a beautiful cottage only a short distance from the coast (Wells) then i would high recommend this stay.

A fantastic get away!

  • 5 of 5

We went away as a group of friends on the bank holiday weekend. We arrived late the Friday night and could not believe our luck! The cottage was beautiful, spacious, light and furnished to a very high standard. Really comfortable beds and fluffy towels. Plenty to do and a great location. Cromer is just over half an hour away and lots of idyllic towns with fantastic boutique shops. Definitely recommend staying here and will be returning thanks Rachel and James

Convenient, spacious and charming throughout

  • 5 of 5

We loved the endless charm of the cottage. Every room had something unusual and interesting to look at. Clearly a lot of thought had gone into the detail. It looked well kept and tidy and everything worked well. We loved the conservatory looking out onto the cottage garden. Prefect when the sun came out. Our daughters loved playing with the toys in the playroom. We worried about Walsingham being too far inland, but we were not disappointed. Only a few minutes by car to Wells and the national cycle route passes through Wells. We cycled to Holkam hall with the kids and got the miniature train to Wells. The property is only 50m from the local store! The local farm shop, chip shop and restaurant were all tried Wifi worked well, which kept the kids entertained.

Stunning cottage, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

From the time we arrived, until the day we left, we had an amazing, comfortable, and relaxed stay. The house is amazing and has loads of room, which we needed for my extensive family. The children loved the garden, so much room to let off steam. The bedrooms and roomy and so comfortable. The 3 bathrooms were very handy, having so many of us staying, no queues!!! The area was very peaceful. will definitely book again!! Thank you to a lovely couple, for letting us stay in this amazing cottage. Tina and Alan Fawbert and Family. Brighouse. West Yorkshire

Charming & comfortable family cottage

  • 5 of 5

This charming and classy family-sized cottage was the perfect base for exploring Holkham and Wells beaches, shopping at Burnham Market and watching seals off Blackeney Point. We enjoyed relaxing in front of the wood burning stove at the end of the day while the children played in the spacious garden. Everything is here that you need for your stay - even with two families of 5 sharing, it's like home from home! The bedrooms and bathrooms were super: very luxurious and comfortable. The Black Lion hotel in the village welcomed our party of 10 for dinner and the Chocolate Deli and Village Farm Shop were very lovely discoveries!
