    “Such a beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting.”

    The cottage had everything we needed with extra perks, such as a lovely welcome pack, starter pack of sachets of tea, coffee, dishwasher tablet, washing up sponges, tea towels. I had brought my own but it was a nice touch. Hairdryer, logs and kindling for the log burner and even food for the ducks! We restored the wood and duck food for the next guests. The cottage is about 15 minutes drive from Wells and it was ideal for dog walking. We’d get in the car, park up and have the most beautiful ...

    The cottage had everything we needed with extra perks, such as a lovely welcome pack, starter pack of sachets of tea, coffee, dishwasher tablet, washing up sponges, tea towels. I had brought my own but it was a nice touch. Hairdryer, logs and kindling for the log burner and even food for the ducks! We restored the wood and duck food for the next guests. The cottage is about 15 minutes drive from Wells and it was ideal for dog walking. We’d get in the car, park up and have the most beautiful walks on the beach. We did this every morning and then come ‘home’ for coffee and plan our day. Sandringham is only 20 minutes drive and is such a beautiful estate. Again, dog friendly walks. Even the restaurant will accept dogs. For us it was about unwinding and relaxing. We would go out each morning, maybe have a spot of lunch out and then come back mid to late afternoon, put some logs on the wood burner, play a few games and watch a film. Order a takeaway or rustle up something and unwind. Just beautiful. We would definitely return. Thank you so much the the use of this beautiful cottage

About the location

FAKENHAM

Norwich 25 miles; Holt 13 miles.

The historic market town of Fakenham is famous for its horse racing and offers a wide selection of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Situated on the River Wensum, half way between Norwich and Kings Lynn it is an excellent, central location for exploring Norfolk. The town holds a popular Thursday market which takes over most of the town centre with local traders and those from further afield selling a wide selection of goods. The town also plays host to a Farmers’ Market, monthly on the fourth Saturday of every month, ideal for stocking up on fresh local produce. Fakenham is a very attractive market town with pretty brick and flint-faced buildings, narrow alleyways and side streets to explore. Often referred to as the Gateway to Norfolk this town really does offer a perfect base for exploring this beautiful county. You are only a twenty minute drive from the coastal towns of Wells-next-the-Sea, Holkham and Burham Overy where you will find miles of pine forests, sandy beaches, salt marshes, tidal creeks and great opportunities for birdwatching. There are some lovely areas of unspoilt countryside and villages and the Holkham Estate has a number of attractions and a fabulous deer park. With so many activities on offer, this area is a fantastic choice at any time of year.
