  • "Lovely location with great views."

    Very nicely decorated and comfortable. Would stay again. Could have a few more mugs and crockery.

  • "We stayed at the Attic in Blackborough End for a nearby family wedding, which worked really well."

    However there was a distinct lack of mirrors which made getting ready difficult. Also we had a year old baby with us and the bathroom door was very creaky and winked him. Otherwise we loved our stay.

  • "Had a wonderful stay, what a fantastic location and so quiet at night."

    It is exactly as described in the listing (including the TV's in the rooms). Wonderful to look out over the fields in the evening and open up the doors, especially in this warm weather. A great base for all the day trips we made to Wells-Next-The-Sea, Hunstanton and others. Would highly recommend.

  • "Beautiful and clean and a lovely quiet place for a holiday The view from lounge window is stunning."

    . There are many beautiful walks in the area and Kings Lynn is a lovely town to explore. Note there is no bath mat or potato peeler and only one small mirror.

  • "The attic was beautifully kept if a little minimalist."

    Everything was lovely and clean. The floor had been vacuumed but unfortunately possibly not mopped as there was a few dusty footprints. We quickly located the mop ourselves and rectified this with no trouble. The decor is very lovely and clean with comfortable beds. I feel the property could use a little more storage for unpacking your clothes but we managed fine with the rail provided and out of the case as we had a spare bed as there’s 3 of us. The thing that makes this a five star stay was location as it is close to kings lynn and lots of things to do but you feel like you’re away from it all and because you are upstairs the view is stunning with bunnies running around, deer and bird life.

  • "Very warm and comfortable."

    Surprised at lack of teapot. Also had to go out on Sunday and buy J cloth, pan scourer, spare loo roll. We had taken teatowels as Sykes info suggested but expected to find the rest. No written instructions were provided. On Wednesday morning another resident drove out early and locked the gates on the main drive, so we were stuck inside! Luckily there was somebody working in the adjacent farm yard who came and opened the gates but it was a worry thereafter as we didn’t have any code. We do think the property would benefit from some drawers in the bedrooms, and a second set of crockery would make it possible to use the dishwasher instead of washing up by hand after every meal.

  • "The apartment was warm, clean and inviting it was located exactly as described although without provision of any helpful info on where to go etc we never did locate the pub which was billed as 1 mile away."

    The listing was inaccurate because it advised there were 3 tvs in the property yet in truth only one was installed…this was not an issue for us but the entry should be corrected. The kitchen lacked the provision of a teapot and a cafetière. The bed was a standard double and the main bedroom would benefit from the provision of a king size bed. Better (wooden?) hangers would lift the hanging space considerably. There is little or no storage space for suitcases. The lighting in the seating area was inadequate for reading. Overall it was a pleasant property and we enjoyed our stay.

  • "Please note, between the metal gates as you enter the property there is a metal back on the ground."

    It does not affect 4x4’s or larger vehicles but as my Mazda is low to the ground, it caused damage to my exhaust and underside. Also your listing clearly states THREE smart televisions, there was only one. We had planned to watch television in bed. We advise a bath mat is supplied as the bathroom floor can be slippery. Finally being allergic to feathers, the bedding meant a considerable lack of sleep. Overall great views, good facilities, nice location.

The property

King's Lynn 5.1 miles.

The Attic is a contemporary, first-floor cottage nestled in Blackborough End, five miles from the historic town of King’s Lynn.

Approached by main country and rural roads, this fabulous cottage sits within the owner’s grounds, but is afforded privacy and stunning views of the surrounding area that goes on for miles.

Climb an external staircase to reach the door, before stepping inside and hanging your jackets and boots in the storage cupboard.

The galley style kitchen is extensive and offers all the essentials for a self-catered break, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and Belfast sink, plus plenty of worktop space, ensuring your culinary requirements are satisfied.

Move through to the living area where you will immediately be drawn to the Juliet balcony providing uninterrupted rural views; open the French doors and let the breeze, before enjoying the view from the sumptuous settee.

As the evening comes to a close, choose either the double or twin bedroom to catch your rest, fitted with plush duvets and wall-mounted Smart TVs so you can continue your favourite series to bed.

Serving these bedrooms is the lavish shower room, boasting beautiful tiling and a rainfall shower to step under.

From the cottage you can access the village of Middleton, offering a village store and an excellent pub with a great reputation, perfect if you fancy a night away from the kitchen.

Venture into the town of King’s Lynn, where you will be delighted by the selection of bistros and eateries that await you to cater every taste, in addition to a selection of shops where souvenirs can be purchased.

Those looking to get their steps in can head to the Walks where you will find a magnitude of opportunities for walking and cycling, or brush up on local history by discovering Castle Rising, a ruined medieval fort used throughout the Anglo-Normal era.

If you’re looking to spend some time by the coast, head over to the North Norfolk Coastline where you can choose from a selection of sandy stretches, while the beauty of the RSPB Nature Reserve provides plenty of scenic splendour.

If exploration takes you further afield then the city of Cambridge and Norwich provides plenty of fabulous attractions to keep you busy.

Return to The Attic and recharge your batteries with a relaxing evening with your loved ones.

About the location


Sandringham 9 miles; Snettisham 13.4 miles; Hunstanton 17 miles.

King's Lynn is a historic, medieval port dating back to the 12th century, situated on the River Great Ouse. A treasure trove for history lovers, the town boasts grand merchant houses, art galleries and museums, and the Custom House, built by Henry Bell in 1683, which is a Grade I listed building. The town retains its original winding streets and alleys, and boasts good shopping facilities, with a combination of national retailers and specialist shops, along with a selection of pubs and restaurants. Much of the surrounding Norfolk countryside is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the West Norfolk coastline within easy driving distance. Hunstanton, in particular, is renowned for its sunsets and lovely beaches. Boat trips are available from several points along the coast, while the Norfolk Coast Cycleway runs from King's Lynn to Cromer. The impressive Visitor Centre at The Queen's fabulous country retreat, Sandringham, is also a short drive away and well worth a visit.
