  • “Lovely cosy cottage, and really ...”
    Lovely cosy cottage, and really well equipped, however we have found that we have never before had to take our own hairdryer on holiday. Similarly when the cottage was advertised as all linen supplied, we assumed this included tea towels. Consequently, we had to purchase both of these. Perhaps this could be mentioned in the description of what is included? ...
    Lovely cosy cottage, and really well equipped, however we have found that we have never before had to take our own hairdryer on holiday. Similarly when the cottage was advertised as all linen supplied, we assumed this included tea towels. Consequently, we had to purchase both of these. Perhaps this could be mentioned in the description of what is included? That said, Castle Acre is a lovely village, and the castle and priory are well worth a visit. Also good walks for the dog. Wells next the Sea is fabulous and our Irish terrier Declan absolutely loved it! Miles and miles of beach, and a pine wood to explore. The Ostrich pub in Castle Acre is warm and welcoming with great food, but a touch on the expensive side. However, we found that everywhere we went we were treated in a very friendly way, and dogs are most welcome practically everywhere. We will go back ...

The village retains the ruins of a Norman castle with earthworks, the beautiful church of St James and the ruins of a Cluniac Priory. The main entrance into this attractive village is through Bailey Gate, a 13th Century flint gateway, under which pilgrims have passed for hundreds of years on their way to the shrine at Little Walsingham, a pilgrimage which still takes place today. There is a large village green surrounded by lime trees, cottages, traditional tea rooms, two public houses serving meals and further along the road, a village store. The local market town of Swaffham, five miles away, offers shops, a Saturday market with auction and Eco Tec centre.
