    “We had a lovely stay at The Greyhound Cottage, the facilities were excellent with everything you can think of available, it’s the little extra touches that made it more special.”

    The cottage was a good central location, Brancaster Beach is not far and good for long walks on the beach. Would definitely recommend staying here.

The property

Fakenham 1.9 miles.

Greyhound Cottage sits directly on the street in the sleepy village of Sculthorpe, on the fringes of Fakenham.

With a modern feel throughout and quality fixtures and fittings, this cottage is ideal for families and friends looking to explore the whole of the Norfolk Coast AONB and the many fun-packed attractions East Anglia has to offer.

On entrance, you will find the spacious sitting room welcoming you into a lovely social space, where you can relax and unwind after a tiresome journey.

Climb the steps to the modern-style kitchen and rustle up a delicious, home-cooked meal to be had in the dining room; as you tuck into a tasty meal, you can discuss plans for the duration of your trip and reminisce over times gone by.

If you fancy some time away from the group, you can retire to the snug room for some quiet time with a book, as the woodburning stove crackles away in the background, for additional warmth on a cold winter's night.

The first floor plays host to a stylish master bedroom, with a super king-size double bed set on a raised platform and an en-suite wet room for your convenience.

There is also another super king-size double room with a zip/link bed for flexible sleeping arrangements, followed by a triple bunk room.

Outside, you have a courtyard garden with table and chairs for you to sit out and enjoy the fresh air, with a further garden area behind a storage unit.

There is a handy pub almost opposite and plenty of amenities in the nearby town of Fakenham, which has a Thursday market and a monthly Farmers' Market, offering a varied selection of fresh produce.

You are in an enviable location for exploring this beautiful county, with a plethora of walking and outdoor activities available.

Discover the seaside towns of Wells-next-the-Sea, Holkham and Burham Overy and even travel further afield to The Broads, home to a network of rivers and lakes littering a stunning countryside setting.

This is the place to choose for a rejuvenating holiday in East Anglia.

The historic market town of Fakenham is famous for its horse racing and offers a wide selection of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Situated on the River Wensum, half way between Norwich and Kings Lynn it is an excellent, central location for exploring Norfolk.

The town also plays host to a Farmers’ Market, monthly on the fourth Saturday of every month, ideal for stocking up on fresh local produce. Fakenham is a very attractive market town with pretty brick and flint-faced buildings, narrow alleyways and side streets to explore. Often referred to as the Gateway to Norfolk this town really does offer a perfect base for exploring this beautiful county. You are only a twenty minute drive from the coastal towns of Wells-next-the-Sea, Holkham and Burham Overy where you will find miles of pine forests, sandy beaches, salt marshes, tidal creeks and great opportunities for birdwatching. There are some lovely areas of unspoilt countryside and villages and the Holkham Estate has a number of attractions and a fabulous deer park.
