    • “The service we received was excellent,the owners were very friendly and helpful. The bungalow was very clean and tidy and met all our requirements. Lovely peaceful location off the beaten track but close enough to all local amenities. Would have liked to be fenced off from the owners dog as I am allergic,so did not use the garden patio. What did I like best? :- the location and the peace and quiet”

    • “Just stayed here whilst house hunting in Norfolk. Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean and well equipped in a peaceful setting. The owner Jackie was so helpful, offering to print house details off the internet and letting us use her map book. On arrival there was milk teabags and coffee as well as biscuits - most welcome. Would highly recomend these cottages. Centrally placed with good access to A47.”

The cottage(s) are situated in a rural spot near woodland and fields of barley. Red deer seen one morning and a multitude of small birds feed in the garden each day. Lovely spot for fishing/walking/bird watching, nearby village has nice pub and small shop.”

About the location


Dereham 3 miles.

Bylaugh is a tiny hamlet with a Saxon round towered church, nestling by the River Wensum, located between the villages of Swanton Morley and Bawdeswell. Both villages, each 1.5 miles away, have village stores and public houses with restaurants. Swanton Morley also has a butcher’s/delicatessen and village bakery. The large market town of Dereham offers an array of shops and supermarkets, a sports centre, cinema, church, museums, and the Mid Norfolk Heritage Railway. A traditional weekly market is held on Tuesday and Friday in the market square. The city of Norwich with its bars, restaurants, cathedral and castle, is 16 miles. There is plenty of walking, fishing and cycling in the area, which is within reasonable driving distance of Sandringham, the Norfolk Showground, Pensthorpe or even the glorious coastline.
