Swaffham Cottages

Set just 5 minutes’ walk from the heart of the Georgian market town of Swaffham, are these two 18th century terraced brick-and-flint farm cottages. Both offering charming and deceptively spacious self-catering accommodation, these character-rich cottages have been renovated to a high standard, retaining many of the original fixtures and features including beamed ceilings and low windows. With comfortable bedrooms, spacious living areas and well-equipped kitchens, these cottages sleep ten altogether and are ideal for families or groups of friends looking to explore the area. Outside, both properties have access to a shared lawned garden area as well as their own gravelled area with furniture and off road parking. Just a short walk takes you into Swaffham town, with its thriving Saturday market, independent shops, pubs, coffee shops and plenty of restaurants, as well as offering good transport links to the major towns in Norfolk. The local area provides a vast array of attractions, including adventure parks, heritage railway lines, RSPB nature reserves, Thetford Forest, Peddars Way and National Trust properties, including Oxburgh Hall, Thursford and Castle Acre. The ancient city of Norwich and the local towns of Thetford, Ely and King's Lynn offer a wide choice of theatres, cinemas, museums, shops and restaurants and are all serviced by good transport links. With a choice of attractions in the local area to suit all tastes, these delightful cottages are the perfect choice to explore the stunning Norfolk countryside, coastline and historic centres.
