    Owners were very welcoming and friendly. Villa was very clean and well equipped.Facilities were as described and we thoroughly enjoyed making use of the hot tub and pool (both remained warm throughout the duration of the stay). Would highly recommend and hope to return in the future.

  • "Incredible holiday home, welcomed by two lovely individuals who made sure we had everything we needed for the whole stay."

    Well presented house which we felt comfortable in and very happy in. Perfect space to have a dog with use of a secure garden and fantastic surrounding countryside. Incredible to have private use of the sauna, hot tub and swimming pool, what an experience. Easy to park your car or van on. Nice quiet area with access to a great chip shop, some pubs and tourist attractions nearby. Couldn't recommend more highly absolutely wonderful holiday place!

    The sauna, jacuzzi and pool were a fabulous treat and helped us relax after a busy day out. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and I will definitely go back at some point. Highly recommend this accommodation

  • "My partner and I and our 2 Spaniels enjoyed the most wonderful week at Fernleigh Villa."

    The owners are on site but not intrusive in any way, whilst managing to be available at the drop of a hat for any assistance you might need and advice about the area and places to visit should you wish. The cottage is perfect with beautiful decor and everything you could could possibly need for a relaxing, comfortable week away. Of all the cottages we have ever been to, Fernleigh, the owners and the facilities are the best by far and we will definitely be looking to go back next year.

  • "We really loved our stay here."

    The accommodation was clean and perfect for our family of 4. The heated pool and the hot tub was what attracted us to Fernleigh Villa Annexe and it most certainly didn't disappoint. Our boys absolutely loved the horses, pool and the hot tub - The horses and the pool was the highlight of our stay! Sean and Val were amazing hosts - very responsive and proactive to all our needs. Sean made us very welcome when we first arrived- He was so lovely and even offered for us to follow him in his car and show us where the closest fish and chip shop was. we will definitely be back. Thanks so much. xx

  • "Sean and Val the owners greeted us when we arrived, showed us around the cottage and the facilities, including the sauna, jacuzzi and swimming pool and offered to assist in any way they could, for example offering to carry our luggage from our car to the cottage and offer transport into the village if we wanted to visit the local pubs or restaurants."

    The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped and set in a lovely rural area and I would certainly recommend booking this accommodation.

  • "We have just returned from a relaxed week at Fernleigh Villa Annexe."

    It is beautifully appointed accommodation and well equipped. Val and Sean are on hand to answer any questions. The private swimming pool was great for the kids - to be able to use a pool whenever you want was such a treat! It was our first holiday with our 6 month old puppy and he was made to feel so very welcome. The little ‘doggy bag’ on arrival was lovely. We would highly recommend.

  • "This was an amazing place to stay."

    The annex itself was clean tidy & had everything you could need. Outside the garden was perfect for our Collies and at the right time of year would be lovely to sit out in the sunshine watching the horses. The relaxation shed with sauna was lovely brilliant after a busy day taking in the sites. However I still can’t believe that we had a pool & hot tub area to use all week as well. Val & Sean where perfect hosts. We’ll be looking at when we can return. If you need a relaxing break with your own spa pool area and well being shed with sauna. This is the place for you.

  • "Fabulous week away in Norfolk,visiting Hunstanton, Wells Next the Sea, Cromer and Great Yarmouth."

    We especially enjoyed our trips to Sandringham, Wroxham and Cambridge. A tip for a visit to Sandringham is to book your tickets online otherewise you may not get into the House. Fernleigh Villa Anexe was a great base for our holiday, although our sat nav kept trying to take us down Bramble Lane, ignore sat nav and drive through the village of Outwell into Upwell and it will pick it up directions again. The swimming pool, hot tub and sauna were a lovely bonus to come back to after a long day walking. Super holiday!

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.
