  • “Property was exactly as listed.”

    Gave us everything we needed for a base for the week. The owner was super helpful ahead of our visit with information about the cottage and very accommodating when we got caught in traffic so would be later to get the keys.

The property

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the market town of King’s Lynn and approached by winding country roads, is this well-presented, semi detached cottage, The Artist's Retreat.

Surrounded by fields and farmlands this spacious accommodation is perfect for a family seeking a tranquil retreat in which to explore the delights of this corner of East Anglia.

After soaking up your wonderful surroundings, be welcomed into the compact, yet well-equipped kitchen which comes with everything you could possibly need to prepare a picnic for your countryside rambles or a delicious home-cooked meal for those relaxing evenings in.

From here, you will find a well-presented dining room which leads into the inviting sitting room, where the open fire takes centre stage before the plush sofas, where you can look forward to sinking into and soaking up the views from the characterful sash windows.

After an action-packed afternoon, venture up the staircase to retire to one of the bedrooms, each boasting a refreshing colour palette, and elegant furnishings.

Choose between a king-size double, a standard double and a single, designed to ensure a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of your group.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful property, a short car journey will bring you to the town of King’s Lynn, where you will be delighted by the selection of bistros and eateries that await you to cater to every taste, in addition to shops for picking up the essentials.

For those feeling adventurous, head to The Walks where you will find a magnitude of opportunities for walking and cycling, or brush up on the local history by discovering Castle Rising.

During the summer months, head to the coast where you will be spoilt for choice by the glorious North Norfolk beaches, as well as the beauty of the RSPB Nature Reserve being in close reach where you can discover nature like no other.

With the picturesque city of Cambridge being just a scenic train journey away too, The Artist's Retreat is a superb base for exploring the delights of this wonderful location.

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.
