  • "Such a lovely holiday cottage."

    Very warm welcome from the owners on arrival. They provide us with all the information we needed about the cottage and there was lots of extra treats we didn't expect. It was very clean and had lots of equipment especially in the kitchen for a perfect holiday. The cottage is perfectly located for travelling around Norfolk, also Littleport train station only 10mins drive which was great to go to Cambridge for a day trip.

  • "Fabulous base for a break."

    Easy access to North Norfolk and Cambridgeshire. The property is spotless and very well equipped. The extras provided are the best we have ever had and we’ve been holidaying in cottages for many years. The only slight negative is that the internet is not strong enough to support the on demand tv that is provided.

    So sorry to hear you had issues with the internet. If you had let us know whilst you were here we would have tried our best to improve the service for you. We are in a village and unfortunately the wifi services are not as good as they are in towns and cities. Regards, the owners. Property Owner

The cleanliness, comfort, decor and style is second to none. If the weather had been nicer we would have enjoyed sitting out in the secluded garden and perhaps utilising the barbecue set which was also included. We used it as a base to visit places, including Bury St Edmunds, Ely, Hunstanton, Wells, Cromer, Sheringham.

About the location


Downham Market 7 miles.

The Norfolk village of Southery, translating from the ‘old English’ as Southern Island is situated seven miles from the town of Downham Market, one of the oldest towns in Norfolk. Southery has a pub, The Old White Bell, and two churches. Downham Market is known locally as the gateway to the Fens, renowned for its network of waterways. The town boasts an attractive black and white clock tower in its main square, and hosts a weekly outdoor market on Fridays and Saturdays selling mostly local produce, along with an additional fortnightly Saturday collectables and craft market. On the fringe of the town is the mainline railway station with links to Ely, Cambridge, King's Cross London and King's Lynn. Discover the great outdoors along the Fen Rivers Way footpaths enjoying distinctive Fens landscape rich in history and wildlife, leading to the River Great Ouse with dramatic open sky and the flood banks that protect the low lying Fens. Just a short drive away is Welney's Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust nature reserve, popular with birdwatchers, where you can view nature in action throughout the seasons, including dragonflies, wildflowers and a wealth of water birds. Other interesting places to visit include Ely Cathedral, the historic maritime town of King's Lynn, Wisbech, the Queen's Sandringham Estate, along with the west Norfolk coastal villages, towns and RSPB sites. A great Norfolk base.
