The property

Hidden down a private lane within the Norfolk village of Bawsey, this delightful cottage enjoys access to the owners' private 12 acres of natural woodland.

With accommodation all on the ground floor, this charming Bawsey cottage offers space and comfort with traditional country-style furnishings.

Gather round the decorative baby grand piano in the sitting room, untuned but a lot of fun!

The gas, living-flame fire creates a wonderfully relaxed and cosy environment on colder nights.

Outside this Bawsey cottage, guests can enjoy relaxing in the hot tub in the Norfolk sunshine in the private garden surrounded by native trees and rhododendrons, or take a stroll through the 12 acres of woodland, home to deer, badgers and many species of birdlife.

Walk or cycle to neighbouring Bawsey Lakes, where you can enjoy lovely views, or picnic whilst watching the resident waterfowl.

Just 4 miles from this Bawsey cottage you can explore the Norfolk maritime town of King's Lynn with its rich historical past.

The Royal Sandringham Estate is nearby, and all the wonderful North Norfolk coast is just awaiting your exploration.

A wonderful Bawsey cottage base from which to enjoy beautiful Norfolk.

    • “So much more than detailed!”

    • “The cottage is quite hard to find (only if you loose the instructions!) it is idealic and great space. Everything you need is there! The next door cottage is very close but to be honest we never noticed them at all. The small walk behind the cottage to the lake is amazing and was such an amazing treat. You could be anywhere in the world and we would love to return.”

    • “Paid for an extra day, unfortunately the hot tub was switched off when we arrived, had to wait a day for it to warm up and by mid week the water was to dirty to use, smelt like washing machine waste water. The cottage was comfortable but we were surprised how close to the main road it was. The electrical appliances are about ready for an upgrade as the cooker was not fully functional and the small old TV is lost in the large comfortable lounge. Lovely woodland walks behind the property with fantastic lakes and wildlife. All in all a relaxing break.”

    Mr Pinchbeck, REDCAR, September 2014

    • “The property is very spacious and comfy! Lovely and warm and the hot tub was a great touch. The cottage does have Internet access and the information pack given was great. It's worth the money and you won't be disappointed! 10/10 For a lovely peaceful holiday!”

    Mrs Shingleton, Folkestone, August 2014

    • “Lovely location convenient for all tourist attractions. Hot tub lovely for relaxing after day out.”

    Mrs Jakes, Belper, July 2014

    • “Location of cottage, could walk out of garden into woods and down to lake very safe and secluded for dogs and children. The Hot Tub is a big hit. Good location for visiting Sandringham and only 30 mins from good beaches.”

    Mrs Hornsby, Northallerton, April 2014

    • “We really liked that the property was tucked in and just a short walk away from the lake, which is very scenic. The living room was perfect for a large group. Hot tub was really great and was large enough for 6 people. The bedrooms were very cosy and nice.”
