  • "Property lovely."

    Host very welcoming and left a lovely bottle of wine. Very clean and comfortable. The only thing I would think that would make it better for people staying that have mobility issues is a stool and dressing table/shelf that height in the bedroom, as beds are high and you can’t sit on them to help you dress but a dressing table stall would (beds moved if leant against). It would also be somewhere to put your makeup etc when you are doing your face and drying your hair when you can’t stand unaided. A shelf with hooks under between the mirror and window in the bedroom would be beneficial too. As nowhere to hang towel near shower (lovely walk in shower) and put the things you need. But perfect as it is, if not old like we are! Definately would stay again.

  • "Lovely Rural location with a shop in walking distance for any essentials."

    Within driving distance from cambridge, and other major cities. But the peace, and quite at the barn is amazing, there is also outside seating to be enjoyed in during the summer months. Lovely stay

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.
