    A beautiful place to stay, wonderful views, well furnished, immaculate throughout, ideal for a relaxing family break, apart from- * Bring toilet rolls, one roll for four people for a week is not enough. * Be advised that the pillows and duvet are brilliant but are filled with feathers or down. Being allergic to this type of bedding made sleep impossible. * Major problem - on entry to the farm you drive through two metal gates, in the middle of the drive there is a large piece of raised metal that is fine if you drive a 4x4 or Land Rover or similar but my Mazda is low to the ground and has been seriously damaged as I try to avoid driving over it. Exhaust and tyre damaged. * Read the Sykes description of the Attic. It clearly states three smart televisions but in fact there is only one. We expected one in the lounge and one in each bedroom. There is only one in the lounge. Disappointing. If it sounds as if I am miserable, I’m not. The accommodations good, the owners friendly and helpful, but I am sick of having my car wrecked.

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.
