  • "Great location for exploring Norfolk, only 30 mins from the coast."

    Perfect for dogs, the garden is fantastic . . . enough space to use a dog ball launcher! The cotrage is a generous size & very well equipped. Helen & Jeff were great hosts & very welcoming. Really friendly village & a great pub which also serves gluten free food which is a real bonus. Looking to book again later in the year.

    Friendly and helpful owners who were on hand and never appeared too busy to talk to you. Garage shop as good as any mini market and butcher worth a visit. Felt Covid safe but also we were able to relax and forget the pandemic!

    The owners were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. and they were very tolerant and friendly. The gifts of veg were appreciated. We had a lovely holiday, and would consider going back to Wisteria Cottage if we have another holiday in Norfolk.

  • "The cottage had everything we needed, and a lot more, meaning we had a very pleasant break."

    Situated in a lovely quiet village with a good pub, with good access to the nearby beaches and Norfolk countryside, but also not far from the amenities of Kings Lynn. The hosts could not do enough to make us feel welcome and help us get the most from our holiday. Would love to come back here again.

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.
