The property

Litcham 3.2 miles. This spotless cottage is an addition to the owner's house and is located in a rural area with a number of attractions in the vicinity. Why not make this hideaway into your own small getaway home for two, giving you the chance to truly disconnect from the outside world? The entry is located in the charming courtyard, which also features a lounging area where you may unwind on a nice afternoon in the sun. With a couch to one side and a woodburning stove to add a touch of warmth and charm, the open-plan living room is presented in a heart-warming way. Opposite is a contemporary kitchen with sleek cabinets and a grey-white colour scheme, a lovely spot to cook your favourite foods. The king-size bedroom is a tranquil haven to unwind in, with coordinated bedside tables and Velux windows that help bring the outside in. The perfect way to relax after a long day is in the massage chair overlooking Squirrels Drey's very own mini woodland. Stairs lead to the family bathroom, complete with a bath and an overhead shower. Enjoy a nice cup of tea in the enclosed garden after a restful night's sleep; it's a beautiful place to unwind and relax. In addition to the village store with a post office, a butcher, the Bull bar, a fish and chip shop, and a doctor's office, Litcham is a picturesque community that may be reached by driving through a common that is home to wild ponies. The Canary and Linnet is a neighbourhood pub in Little Fransham, and further out are Norwich, the Norfolk Broads, and the North Norfolk Coast.

Additionally, Swaffham features elegant Georgian structures that house stores, taverns, restaurants, a thriving Saturday market, and twice-monthly farmers' markets. Peddars Way is conveniently located and can be reached from the nearby village of Sporle, where a trail that can be up to 46 miles long is ideal for walkers and bikers. Squirrels Drey sits in a wonderful foundation to appreciate and explore Norfolk. Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1054769, together they sleep 4 people.

About the location


East Dereham 9 miles; Swaffham 9 miles; Fakenham 11 miles.

Litcham is a traditional, rural Norfolk village with one pub (The Bull Inn), a local butcher, a combined post office and convenience store, and a fish and chip shop. The beautiful village church, with its prominent square tower, dates back to the 12th century, though it was rebuilt to a great extent in the 15th. Litcham and the surrounding villages in the parish (particularly Beeston and Tittleshall) have a busy events calendar. Litcham Common, officially a Local Nature Reserve for over 20 years, is superb for nature lovers, bird-watchers and particularly walkers, as it sits on the Nar Valley Way, which runs all the way from East Dereham to King's Lynn. The three local towns of East Dereham, Swaffham and Fakenham are all about 10 miles away, providing access to a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants.
