  • "Beautiful, spaceous & comfortable cottage."

    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.

Spend your downtime in the sitting room, presented with two chesterfield sofas and armchairs to relax upon, along with a Smart TV so you can stay updated with your favourite shows.

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.
