  • "Fabulous cottage (well equipped & very comfortable); long garden with pretty river at bottom."

    Nice welcome pack, (but we would have appreciated milk). Useful fish & chip shop & great butchers within few minutes walking distance, plus good Coop short drive away. Great places to visit in local area- we particularly recommend Watatunga (deer safari park)- but MUST prebook via internet ; and Gooderstone Water Gardens, also Ely - so interesting & beautiful, with great market some days.

  • "Very nice property but no wardrobes or drawers for clothes in 3 out of the 4 bedrooms!"

    Also you advertise that you can fish the river at the bottom of the garden, this is illegal between March and June and hefty fines can be imposed. Tracy (the manager) very helpful and the property is comfortable and well equipped.

    Good Afternoon Paul & family, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at the cottage, we love our cottage & welcome all types of feedback from all our guests. I hope you enjoyed the welcome pack & all the little extras we provided. Thank you for Tracey’s feedback, I will share with Tracey. Thank you also for your rating on our cleanliness. Kind regards Lou Property Owner

  • "Fabulous cottage."

    Tracy the lady who welcomed us was lovely and very helpful. Even the next door neighbour helped when I had a problem with my car! Great location with the river running at the bottom of the garden. We hope to return next year.

  • "My family (5 adults and 2 kids) had an amazing stay at Coronation Cottage."

    It’s warm/cosy, spacious and very well equipped…. It felt like home away from home. From the moment we entered the drive way the house had an inviting feel about it. A lovely back garden with outdoor seating leading to the river - in the summer would make a great entertainment area. The kitchen/utility had all the mod cons we needed for our stay. Rooms and beds were clean and comfy. There was an issue with the common bathroom shower but Tracey dealt with it and quickly arranged a plumber to sort it. The cottage is located in a small quiet town/village with a few shops and tasty fish and chip shop! I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends and hope to return again some day.

    Beautiful area & we loved the garden & seating area outside. Cottage so well equipped! A visit by two swans & their cygnets made our grandchildren's day.

  • "WOW! What a cottage!"

    Facilities were brilliant - everything we needed to hand (we'd started taking our own essentials after previous cottage visits). The gardens are beautiful, with the garden nice and private! Grandkids enjoyed fishing and watching boats go past. The house was staggering - VERY well fitted out with really comfy beds! Nice and quiet so had a great nights sleep! Sitting and dining areas big enough for 8 to sit together to eat and socialise. Overall, a great holiday let!

  • "It is such lovely accommodation, the pictures online are exactly what you find."

    The village was lovely too, it made a great base for us to visit the North Norfolk coast. Everything you could want or need is nearby. Fishing was pretty good and being at the end of the garden an even bigger bonus. Tracey was lovely and very informative on places to visit etc. There was also a lovely welcome pack. We can't wait to return.

    Nice walks in the local area. Tracey was very friendly. Would definitely recommend Coronation Cottage. Only criticisms - we found the pillows too big! Also 3 of the bedrooms only had a bedside table and lamp on 1 side which was a bit awkward.

    Very well equipped & appointed. Some surfaces & floors hadn't been cleaned to the standard we expected & there were some technical issues with certain appliances but the owner was very swift to try to rectify these, which we appreciated. Living space & bedrooms worked well for 2 familes staying together & the Americal fridge with ice & water dispenser was very popular! Thank you for the welcome goodies.

There is also a bathroom with bath and shower over, so you can enjoy lazy soaks in the evening and brisk showers in the morning.

The exterior of this Upwell cottage is a real highlight, boasting an enclosed gravelled section with a covered seating area, perfect for entertaining on a balmy evening, while the beautiful rear garden offers a lawned area leading down to the river, where you can sit back and enjoy a spot of fishing, or simply switch off as you listen to the river flow by.

About the location


Wisbech 6.5 miles; King's Lynn 18.9 miles

Upwell is a small and charming village resting amidst the glorious Norfolk countryside, just 18.9 miles away from King’s Lynn. The villages of Upwell and Outwell were once collectively known as 'Welle' or 'Welles' and even today, it is not obvious where one village starts and the other ends. Within this attractive waterside village, you will find a host of amenities. Until 1960s, Wisbech tramway connected the village, however, when it closed a preservation society arose, led by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry, who is known as the author of the Thomas the Tank Engine books. Today, you can discover the history of the tram, which provided much of the inspiration for the classic children’s stories by exploring the Outwell and Upwell walk. Alternatively, explore the historic town of King’s Lynn, home to a vibrant town centre and several endearing cobbled lanes, as well as the impressive Custom House, which overlooks the harbour. From Upwell, you can also visit the towns of Downham Market and Wisbech, or if you are feeling adventurous, explore the open landscapes of the Fens, as well as the Wildfowl and Wetland Centre in Welney. Upwell make a wonderful base for exploring surrounding Norfolk with your loved ones.

Note: Owners have added small picket fence to give a safe area for children, but beyond this there is access to the river at the end of the garden.
