With modern amenities, this quaint Norfolk cottage has a well-equipped, traditional farmhouse kitchen, three country style bedrooms and incredible vaulted and beamed ceilings which lend the property character. Situated in the rural hamlet of West End close to Bradenham in the heart of Norfolk, this cosy conversion of a former stable block is only two miles from the lovely village of Necton. With three bedrooms – one ground floor double and two twins in the eaves – this cottage is able to sleep a total of six people so is ideal for a family. The property also comes with the shared use of three and a half acres of landscaped garden...s with a stream – ideal for a summer-evening stroll, a picnic or ball games.

Region: Picturesque rolling Fens, unspoilt beaches, and pretty waterways – East Anglia is a dream holiday destination. Norfolk offers beaches, saltmarshes and quaint villages whilst equally as charming are the coast and countryside of Suffolk.
Town: In the heart of Norfolk the thriving village of Necton is situated between the market towns of Swaffham and Dereham. This lovely location, dominated by its impressive Norman church boasting a beautiful carved oak communion table dating back to 1086 and a wonderful Jacobean pulpit, is home to a welcoming pub with restaurant, a village store with butchers and a post office. The fine Georgian house of Bradenham Hall is close by and with over 27 acres of beautiful gardens and a spectacular arboretum - apparently visited by the famous Lord Nelson – is well worth a visit, as is the infamous Peddars Way. The Norfolk Coastal Path is a 93 mile trail through the picturesque Norfolk countryside - great for walking, cycling and horse riding.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

This cottage is a converted stable but has a lot of mod-cons while keeping that old country cottage feel. It was hard to find as it really is in the middle of nowhere(used sat nav but still had trouble) We had 3 generations staying (ages 8-70) The kitchen/living room is very open and quite large. The eaves bedroom is perfect for young kids. The stairs are a little steep. The cottage is surrounded by farmland and fields with horses and chickens. There were fresh eggs and produce available for purchase everyday (reasonably priced too).
When we arrived, the owners had provided milk, tea and cookies, which was a nice touch. There was also leaflets and maps for days out. The cottage is about 40 mins from a lot of Norfolk attractions.
Things I didn't like - there was no phone (travelling from abroad, we didn't have cell phones) or WiFi. It was also very hot so a fan would have been nice. And there were not many plugs near a mirror.
My family were impressed with the cottage and have already recommended it to others.
A great,well placed and peaceful location

The location was great for accessing all parts of Norfolk. The property was immaculate, the owners lovely and the facilities good.A tumble drier would have made it totally complete. The only comment would be that the third bedroom is really only suitable for very young small children.

An idyllic country get-a-way only 2 hours from home...

We were very much impressed by the warm welcome received, and the freshly laid eggs left in the traditional country cottage kitchen were a nice touch!
The beautifully landscaped gardens, with trampoline and friendly family dog make you feel like it's a home from home.
Our 3 year old loved the setting, and often asks to go back! We have promised her that we will as we all enjoyed the beautifully decorated Cottage and our stay so much.
If we could swap our life in the city for the perfect country get-a-way, we would pick this beautifully finished cottage...

This is one of the most highly refurbished cottages we have stayed in. We regularly travel with our dogs and therefore, have not always had such a lovely property! Its so refreshing look forward to getting home to enjoy the lovely open plan kitchen and eat and drink together!
This was a super base to see the local area too with supermarkets a short car drive away to stock up!
Based on a small holding, there are horses and chickens to see and its all on the flat therefore lovely for my disabled mother to look around too! You can even buy eggs from the owner to have for breakfast. You wont get fresher!!
We would definately consider it for a summer break and would enjoy relaxing at the cottage as well as popping out!
Great cottage to get away from it all.

Excellent cottage in good surroundings. Probably the best holiday cottage that I've stayed at in the UK. Equipped and furnished to a very standard.
Spacious fully equipped kitchen with range style cooker and large american style fridge freezer.
Well placed in central norfolk so easy to get around to all the sites.
Only gripe if staying longer would have been the lack of a shower as there is only a (very nice) old fashioned bath and sink.
