Updated: 16-Sep-2016
Holiday Home in Norfolk/ cambridge, sleeps 4 ,Children and Pets Welcome

Tucked peacefully down a little country lane in the heart of the Fens and enjoying glorious pastoral views, this spacious property is ideally located for visiting the area’s many attractions. Adjoining the owners’ Edwardian farmhouse, it sits just 8 miles from inns, restaurants and museums in historic King’s Lynn.

Autumn Watch and Spring Watch are filmed locally in the area. We are renowned for our birdwatching facilities, including RSPB Snettisham & Titchwell and the spectacular arrival of the swans in the evenings at WWT Welney during the winter months.

Comfortable cottage, nice rural location

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our needs as a mature couple. Siutated in a good location and so near to lots of local attractions in all directions. Would have been nice to have met our hosts. The welcome treats were a lovely touch, thank you. The fresh eggs available to buy for travellers was an added bonus.

Wonderfully quiet, peaceful and spotlessly clean

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described. We arrived to find tea, coffee, wine and cake waiting for us in a sparklingly clean holiday home. Indeed, we have stayed in many, many cottages/holiday homes over the years and we are extremely fussy - especially with regards to cleanliness, and this is the first where we felt able to just make a cup of tea without having to wash the crockery first. The cottage was spotless and sparkling. So gold stars all round!

Leesa and David were very accommodating, taking our booking at very short notice and our stay was peaceful and relaxing. I would not hesitate in recommending thier property to others.

Many thanks for a really lovely 12 days.
