About the property

Cottage in Reepham, Norfolk. Very Close to Local Shops and other Amenities - Sleeps 4 - Norwich 12 mls, Blickling 7 mls.

Number Twelve is a spacious 2 bedroom cottage near to the Market Place with its own private parking space. The cottage has free WiFi and a landline telephone (incoming calls only). The main bedroom has a double bed with space for a travel cot and bedroom 2 has two single beds. There is a lounge, a dining room and a pleasant garden room with views of the church. The upstairs bathroom is spacious with toilet, washbasin and a shower over the bath. The cottage also has a downstairs toilet. A secluded walled garden offers a private outside space.

The Kings Arms and Dial House in the Market Place are excellent places to eat.

Norwich and the Broads are within a 30 minute drive and the North Norfolk Coast is only 35 minutes away. The central location within Norfolk makes this an ideal base to explore this picturesque county.

Number 12 is situated just moments away from the centre of Reepham, the smallest town in Norfolk, and certainly one of the most picturesque. The completely Georgian Market Place and most of the town is within a conservation area. The three churches in one churchyard, one just ruins, its quaint cottages and the newly renovated Dial House, with its restaurant and tea rooms, give character and a sense of history to the town.

Granted a market charter in 1277, with its market still operating today, Reepham has grown over the centuries and has a range of independent shops and places to eat.

Number 12 is the end property in a terrace of four, with all the comforts of modern living combined with a cottage feel. The cottage has been fully renovated and offers high quality spacious accommodation for four people plus a small secluded garden and its own parking space.

Number Twelve is the ideal base from which to explore this attractive small town and surrounding areas with many places to visit. The Whitwell and Reepham Railway Museum is nearby, the Bure Valley narrow gauge railway at Aylsham is only 15 minutes drive, the Mid Norfolk Railway at Dereham is 20 minutes away and the North Norfolk Heritage Railway at Holt is only a 25 minute drive, making this the perfect spot for any train enthusiasts. The award winning Dinosaur Adventure Park is 4 miles away. Reepham is an ideal spot for walking and cycling due to it being on the Marriott's Way, a 26 mile footpath, bridleway and cycle route running from the historic market town of Aylsham via Reepham to the medieval city of Norwich. The guide book can be found at: (http://www.marriottsway.info/downloads/Marriotts_Way_Guide_Book.pdf) . The beautiful North Norfolk Coast, the Norfolk Broads and the fine city of Norwich are within easy driving distance.

FREE WIFI / INTERNET ACCESS AND LANDLINE TELEPHONE, which takes INCOMING CALLS ONLY. (Guests will be given the number well in advance of arrival so that, if they wish, they can ensure that friends/relatives have a reliable way of contacting them.)

About Paul

Having retired from teaching, three years ago we decided to start a new venture by setting up a holiday cottage. We decided that we wanted to offer the opportunity for people to stay in a clean, spacious cottage at fair prices within our own small town of Reepham, which is a pretty Georgian market town (about the size of a large village) in Mid/North Norfolk.

We live about 300 yards from the cottage so we are on hand if you need us but we will leave you to enjoy your holiday.

We are committed to ensuring that you have an enjoyable holiday and, as you will see from the many positive reviews, guests have clearly enjoyed their stay.

Paul purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Paul chose Reepham

Number Twelve is a spacious two bedroom cottage style town house very close to the centre of Reepham with its own off-road parking, which is a considerable asset. The property is ideal for holiday makers who are seeking a central location from which to explore Norwich and North Norfolk, those visiting friends or staying for local events, such as concerts etc. at Blicking Hall.

Reepham is a 'hidden gem', ideally located for visiting Norwich or North Norfolk.

What makes this cottage unique

With a good range of local shops, within 200yds, including a Spar shop nearby, open from early mornings to late evenings seven days a week, the location provides for a stress free stay. You will also be close to a good pub, restaurant/tea rooms and other local amenities.


This is a family owned property with the owner close at hand. In the unlikely event that visitors have any problems these can be dealt with quickly.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The cottage is central to all interesting attractions; off road parking; close to shops; lovely little garden; big and bright bathroom; very well equipped. We felt homely and comfortable straight away.

A lovely house in a very convenent spot

  • 5 of 5

This house is well situated for both local requirements as well as going further afield. It was beautifully clean and tidy and had everything one would need for self catering. The owner has provided lots of information about visiting the local area. He also made sure that we could use all the appliances in the house with lots of useful notes. It was good to meet him and know he was on hand if need be.

Viel Platz zum Wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind mittlerweile in sehr vielen Ferienwohnungen gewesen, aber so gut war noch keine organisiert. Man merkt sofort da hat jemand an alles gedacht.

Für alle technische Geräte gibt es Hinweise wie sie bedient werden können mit Schaubildern oder/und Text. Wir fanden das sehr praktisch. Die Kommunikation mit Paul war auch immer sehr zuvorkommend. Zu jeder Zeit hatten wir das Gefühl gehabt, wenn irgendetwas nicht in Ordnung wäre, dann würde Paul sich bemühen eine Lösung zu finden.

Die Ausstattung war überdurchschnittlich gut (Geschirrspülmaschine, Waschmaschine und Trockner ist vorhanden, DVD Abspieler und etliche DVDs ), netterweise waren Verbrauchsmaterialien für den ganzen Aufenthalt vorhanden, bspw. Reinigungsmittel wie Spülmaschinentabs. Die Wohnung war in einem sehr gepflegten und sauberen Zustand. Die Farbgebung in der Wohnung war durchgehend freundlich.

Im Garten haben wir uns auch sehr gerne aufgehalten, auch hier: Es fehlte an nichts und es war sehr gemütlich. Alles in allem, eine sehr empfehlenswerte, gemütliche Wohnung, in der nichts fehlte und in der man sich voll und ganz auf den Urlaub konzentrieren konnte.

Vielen Dank an Paul

Owner's Response: Thank you for the detailed review. We are pleased that you found the cottage to be so well equipped and organised. This review translates into English as: Over time, we have been to lots of holiday cottages but up to now none was so well organised. One notices immediately that somebody has thought of everything. There are instructions with pictures and/or text for all technical equipment. We found that very practical. The communication with Paul was always very obliging. We always felt that if something wasn' t OK then Paul would make an effort to find a solution. The house was equipped to an above average standard ( dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, DVD player and several DVDs available) Kindly, supplies like washing up liquid and dishwasher tabs were available to last the whole stay. The house was in a very well cared for and clean condition. The decor was pleasant throughout. We also enjoyed the garden: here too nothing was lacking and it was very pleasant. All in all a very recommendable cosy house in which nothing was lacking and in which one could concentrate fully on having a holiday.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was far more spacious than we were expecting, it was clean and comfortable, with lovely decor and the sun room and garden were a delight. Everything we had been told was accurate and it was extemely well equipped. Every possible need has been anticipated and provided for. The location is great, few minutes walk to a shop and to a smashing pub where the food is good and reasonably priced. Reepham is a very pleasant little town and well situated for reaching other places of interest. I would certainly recommend this cottage.
