    The hosts were fantastic and couldn’t do enough, the cottage fully stocked in all you could need and we found very comfortable for our requirements. Lovely large gardens for our pups to explore. In summary if you looking for the ideal place to explore this part of the world then look no further.

    Thank you so much. I'm glad you had a good holiday Property Owner

    A real home from home with the most beautiful big garden to explore! Very friendly, informative hosts too! The welcome pack inc a bottle of wine was very much appreciated! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Wisteria Cottage

  • "A lovely place to stay, very quiet, everything you could ever need available."

    Owners very friendly and helpful. We used it as a base for our visit to the Norfolk sites on our puppies first holiday. Our only very small point out would be, a more comfortable less creaky sofa would make this a 5 star place to stay.

    So glad you have had a nice stay. I have been looking for a suitable sofa that we can actually manoeuvre up the stairs. Hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "Very pleasant break."

    This is a nice location in please surroundings. Beds were clean and comfortable. Curtain in the main bedroom could possibly do with different curtains or blackout blinds as the light streams in. The crows in the surrounding trees were a little noisy in the early morning (Not much you can do about this!) but the garden, pond and birds were very nice. Wonder if you could make more of the spare room off the Lounge but it was useful for storing suitcases and drying wet towels. Would definitely recommend if you are visiting this area of the country.

    Very glad you had a good stay. New curtains are now up. Hope to see you again. Property Owner

About the location


  • King's Lynn 7 miles
  • Swaffham 10 miles

The small Norfolk village of Gayton is surrounded by charming, open countryside, and yet is within easy reach of the coast, offering two shops, a fish and chip shop and a pub, and host to a prominent historic windmill. Gayton lies seven miles to the east of the popular market town of King’s Lynn, which still retains the character, charm and many traditional buildings of its original function as a medieval port, set along its winding streets. With a mixture of old and new structures, King’s Lynn provides excellent amenities including a modern shopping centre, art galleries, museums, two theatres and its iconic Customs House. From Gayton, the North Norfolk Coast is within easy reach and will appeal to many, with its expansive golden sandy beaches, coastal walks and cycleways, RSPB reserves and nearby Sandringham House and Estate, Oxburgh Hall and Houghton Hall.

Note - There is a pond in the shared gardens.
