  • "This was the first holiday we've ever booked where the property was attached to the owners home."

    Prior, we had reservations that we wouldn't be able to relax and would be conscious that we could be encroaching on someone's private space. That couldn't be further from how it was. We had a very peaceful and relaxing holiday and the annexe was a lovely and peaceful place to stay and we didn't want to leave. The accommodation was lovely and the garden is such a nice place to walk around. Its a great base to explore and our dog enjoyed the many off lead walks around Norfolk. We hope to return.

    The owner was lovely; very helpful and friendly. It was lovely waking up to so much wildlife too: deer, peacocks, rabbits, hares and Woodpeckers. We'd definitely recommend this cottage.

    ! The huge garden isnt fenced & because of the wildlife we had to keep our dog on a lead at all times. The cottage was warm, comfortable & well equipped, with freeview TV. Could do with bedside rugs, as it's completely tiled floor. Had a warm welcome from owners & would highly recommend

    All you can hear is the birds (including some peacocks next door) Deer pass through the garden. Sadly it was too chilly to sit outside and enjoy watching them during our stay. Would be great in warmer weather. Lots to do within a few miles if you enjoy walking, history, countryside, the coast and small market towns with independent shops. Highly recommended.

    Everything as described. Comfy bed. Tiled floors throughout - perfect for our dog.

Some lovely villages within 30 min drive - Cromer, Wells etc a little longer, but a really good base to come back to. We never go to the same place twice, but would definitely recommend a visit here.

The owners are a lovely couple who are on hand if needed but unobtrusive otherwise. The property is very well equipped and the washing machine and tumble dryer are a godsend. Have stayed in a number of Sykes cottages but this one is by far the best yet. Highly recommend a stay at The Annexe.

    We did find everything but inadvertently turned the fridge off for a short time & had trouble finding the right switch for lights above the stove. However these were small things which we sorted out. The signal on the tv needed fixing & that was done very soon after we mentioned this & then was fine. The Annex is in a very peaceful setting, easy to find (with satnav & Toni sent good directions). The location good as it is in between King's Lynn & Norwich & not too far from the beaches so we visited everywhere we planned. It's a place I would definitely recommend to others & stay in again.

About the location


  • East Dereham 9 miles
  • Swaffham 9 miles
  • Fakenham 11 miles

Litcham is a traditional, rural Norfolk village with one pub (The Bull Inn), a local butcher, a combined post office and convenience store, and a fish and chip shop. The beautiful village church, with its prominent square tower, dates back to the 12th century, though it was rebuilt to a great extent in the 15th. Litcham and the surrounding villages in the parish (particularly Beeston and Tittleshall) have a busy events calendar. Litcham Common, officially a Local Nature Reserve for over 20 years, is superb for nature lovers, bird-watchers and particularly walkers, as it sits on the Nar Valley Way, which runs all the way from East Dereham to King's Lynn. The three local towns of East Dereham, Swaffham and Fakenham are all about 10 miles away, providing access to a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants.
