River Cottage is a delightful, true “country cottage” on the banks of the river Wensum in the rural village of Great Ryburgh. The cottage is set in half an acre of enclosed garden, which runs down to the river. Sit on the decking area and take in the views across the fields and river. The cottage has been modernised to provide stylish and comfortable living whilst retaining some original features.
The village has a good pub serving food, a small shop and post office and is close to the market towns Fakenham and Dereham. The coast is just under half an hours drive away. There is a Raptor watch point just on the edge of the village where you can regularly spot Buzzards, Hobbys and Sparrowhawks.
Please note, the stairs at the cottage are very steep, so may not be suitable for the elderly or very young.
Lovely cottage with a garden down to the river ideal for fishing breaks.

Availability, Reviews and Special Offers
We had a lovely time at River Cottage, and enjoyed the garden very much. We always love Norfolk and this year visited Houghton Hall twice for the Richard Long exhibition and the local artists in the stables.
River Cottage was in a lovely setting, quite and peaceful. It was very homely and had everything we needed.
Very happy with all the information provided. We used the discount card at both Pensthorpe, where we had never been before, and Walsingham Farm Shop. We had a great week and didn't want to come home! Have already recommended you to friends.
A lovely cottage with a gorgeous garden & a wonderful fireplace. Would highly recommend.
We had a truly wonderful holiday in a beautiful cottage with a superb garden. The location of the cottage was ideal for exploring. Superb contact and professional.
The Cottage was beautiful and lived up to the description. We will be returning.
My daughter and I loved our short stay at River Cottage and wished we could have stayed longer! The cottage was so comfortable and we appreciated the warmth when we arrived after a long drive. The setting was perfect and we loved the village. We were so lucky with the weather and found the countryside so attractive. We hope we might come again – and many thanks for making our visit so comfortable
Beautiful little cottage with wonderful garden, we loved it!(This visitor rated the cleanliness and furnishings of River Cottage as excellent)
We chose River Cottage for its situation and were delighted with it. Thank you for the tickets for Pensthorpe which we love. I am sure we will be back to Norfolk again.
We have returned to River Cottage for the last four years and absolutely adore it. The booking process has always been easy and efficient and the cottage has always been faultless. We look forward to visiting every year and are in the process of reserving it for 2016!!!
