  • "Great cottage, very comfortable with excellent facilities."

    Everything was very clean, lots of space and all really good. Excellent location for visits to National Trust properties, nature reserves, countryside walks and the coast. Looking forward to our next visit.

  • "This was our third stay at Granary Cottage, and each time, it has felt like a home from home."

    The property is very comfortable and met all our needs. The location is great for exploring north and west Norfolk. The owners live next door and are friendly but not intrusive.

  • "Very peaceful, clean and comfortable cottage, well situated for visiting all parts of Norfolk."

    Plenty to see and do in the area, although the local pub, The Crown, despite being recommended, appeared to be having a bit of a crisis on the two nights we visited for food!! Over an hour wait on the second visit. The cottage did lack a few minor necessities such as washing up liquid, a washing up cloth, tablets for the dishwasher or any cleaning products - not the sort of things you think to bring with you! Also, a mirror in the second bedroom would be nice. These are only minor quibbles, though, and we still had a very pleasant stay. Would recommend.

  • "The Granary cottage is excellent for a holiday."

    It is spotlessly clean on arrival and is very peaceful. It is ideally situated to visit not only countryside but also the Norfolk coast. The owners are on hand if required but leave you to enjoy a peaceful holiday. We would highly recommend the Granary Cottage. We love it.

  • "Well located cottage for visiting north Norfolk and within close proximity to a pub serving hearty fayre."

    Probably affected by covid restrictions, kitchen good but desperately needs a new frying pan. Bathroom lacks proper mirror and lighting in the living room could be improved as natural light is limited and only one table lamp.

  • "Due to covid, every effort had been made to make us feel safe."

    We had been to the cottage before and knew it was clean and comfortable. It is an ideal location for the coast and country. We cut out holiday short because of the new lockdown but enjoyed the time we had there and will be back.

  • "This cottage was a good base for exploring albeit through Covid-19."

    The cottage itself was easy to locate. It was spacious and clean. Facilities provided were good although a mirror in second bedroom would be ideal. All precautions appear to have been taken in regards to keeping everyone safe. Some utensils and kitchen equipment may have been removed for this purpose but we managed. Thank you to the owners.

  • "We enjoyed our week’s stay at the cottage in these strange COVID-19 times very much and it was a welcome break."

    The cottage is very clean, well-equipped and comfortable, and the location is picturesque and quiet. The owners are on hand and were friendly and helpful as needed. The cottage provided an excellent base for exploring north Norfolk and for linking up with our two sons and their families who were camping nearby. We would certainly consider a repeat visit.

    They introduced themselves then left us to enjoy our holiday. The facilities were excellent and the standard of decor matched the same standards. This was a bit worrying as we took our granddaughter and were constantly worried regarding possible damage Overall we would highly recommend this accommodation many thanks for a wonderful break

  • "Lovely holiday."

    The property was very nice as was the owner. We loved the area, wonderful! Situation was great for visiting Hunstanton, Norfolk Lavender, Sandringham & Walsingham. For people with mobility problems it was very good, cars parked not far from the front door & space to walk with a rollater inside. The only thing we found a problem, with us being older, was the sofas, they were very low & soft making it difficult to get up. Would consider a return stay.

    Great value. The owner is next door and shares an entrance drive - v. friendly but not at all intrusive. The cottage is much nicer than the village which suffers intermittently from heavy traffic/shooting.

The property

An attractive, single-storey brick and flint annexe, adjoining the owners' home in the small village of Gayton, seven miles from King's Lynn.

Well placed for touring the North Norfolk coast, this Gayton cottage provides very comfortable accommodation for couples and families, and set entirely across the ground floor with a convenient shower room, it's also suitable for guests with restricted mobility.

The light and spacious sitting room in this Norfolk cottage has French doors that open out to the rear garden with furniture, a pleasant place to enjoy an alfresco meal in the sun, whilst the two cosy bedrooms are warm and inviting, especially at the close of a busy day spent exploring.

A few minutes' walk brings you to the village pub and shops, whilst the historic market town of King's Lynn, just a short drive away, offers excellent amenities with its independent shops, eateries and pubs set along the charming cobbled streets.

Within easy reach of this cottage near King's Lynn are many attractions, including the splendid Sandringham Estate, just six miles away, Castle Acre and the National Trust manor house at Oxburgh Hall.

Hop on your bike to discover the Norfolk Coast Cycleway, spend a day beside the sea at the beautiful Holkham or the popular seaside resort of Hunstanton, or why not visit one of the nearby RSPB reserves?

This centrally-located Gayton cottage is a wonderful base for an enjoyable Norfolk break.

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.
