Stay in this homely cottage and families and friends can explore all that Norfolk has to offer. Head to the coast and explore The Wash or head inland and spend a day at Thetford Forest Park.
Surrounded by luscious countryside in the medieval village of Thorpland, this stately yet comfortable country house is the perfect base for a retreat with family and friends. Sleeping eight across four bedrooms, there is plenty of space to celebrate a special occasion or get away from the busy rush of modern life. Spend sunny afternoons walking along the coast or relaxing on the beach - those with dogs will love the variety of nature reserves and parks nearby.
This charming cottage still retains many of its original features, from exposed beams to warming fireplaces. Put on your chef hat in the spacious and well-equipped country kitchen with a central breakfast island. There is a more formal dining room too, ideal for events or celebrations. Two comfortable living rooms ensure that everyone has space to relax, with a wood burner and leather sofas in the first, while the second has a further wood burner and plenty of comfortable seating for having a family film night. Kids will love the den, which has another TV and ample beanbags. Upstairs you’ll find four attractive bedrooms which have a more modern feel, and the shower room and family bathroom ensure you are refreshed after a day of walking in the countryside. Dine alfresco in the enclosed, walled garden accessed via the kitchen, and explore the 2 acres of land beyond which is not enclosed.
There are plenty of walks nearby, from Thetford Forest Park 18 miles to the south to the Wash National Nature Reserve 19 miles to the north. Spend a day out at Sandringham Estate (14 miles), wandering through 40 acres of gardens, as well as nature trails and woodlands. Nearby Snettisham Beach (20 miles) is perfect for a calming seaside walk. Just 8.5 miles away is King’s Lynn, a historic town with a lovely selection of shops and eateries.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
