  • Mr Rowland

    “First of all, sorry for the lateness in writing this review.”


    Due to the pandemic, I was fortunate to get the booking, as I had travelled from Romania in the hope of getting a vaccine. So, it was all done in a hurry, as I could not stay with friends or in a hotel. Squirrels Drey was fantastic in every way, and ideal to be isolated during the lockdown. The host, Terry and Marie, were helpful and aware of the situation. Everything was provided with style and attention to detail. In fact, I would love to live permanently in the accommodation as it is perfect, transporting it to Romania! Needless to say a month was a long time to stay, but I loved every day and 'felt at home' in spite of the lockdown. Anyone who books it will, like me, LOVE IT.

The property

Litcham 3.2 miles.

This immaculate cottage is an annex to the owner’s home, situated in a rural location with characterful places of interest dotted around the area.

A chance to really get away from it all, why not turn this retreat into your own little holiday home for two?

Access the entrance via the pretty courtyard, home to a seating area where you can rest under the sun on a pleasant afternoon.

The open-plan living area is presented in a heart-warming fashion with a lounge to one side, elevated by a woodburning stove for a glimpse of charm and warmth.

A contemporary kitchen lies opposite with sleek units and a grey-white compilation, a nice place to prepare your favourite meals.

Stairs lead the way to a family bathroom, complete with a bath and an overhead shower, whilst the king-size bedroom is a peaceful haven to unwind in, with co-ordinated bedside tables and Velux windows, which help to bring the outside in, and the perfect way to relax after a long day in the perfectly placed massage chair overlooking Squirrels Drey very own mini woodland.

After a good night's sleep, enjoy a warm cup of tea in the enclosed garden, a lovely spot to simply take in the peace and quiet.

Litcham is a lovely village which is approached by driving through a common inhabited by wild ponies, with a number of amenities including the village shop with post office, a butchers, the Bull pub, fish and chip shop and also a doctors surgery.

Holkham Natural Nature reserve which is a 40 minute drive away, Snettisham beach and Heacham South Beach also make for a great day out.

About the location


East Dereham 9 miles; Swaffham 9 miles; Fakenham 11 miles.

Litcham is a traditional, rural Norfolk village with one pub (The Bull Inn), a local butcher, a combined post office and convenience store, and a fish and chip shop. The beautiful village church, with its prominent square tower, dates back to the 12th century, though it was rebuilt to a great extent in the 15th. Litcham and the surrounding villages in the parish (particularly Beeston and Tittleshall) have a busy events calendar. Litcham Common, officially a Local Nature Reserve for over 20 years, is superb for nature lovers, bird-watchers and particularly walkers, as it sits on the Nar Valley Way, which runs all the way from East Dereham to King's Lynn. The three local towns of East Dereham, Swaffham and Fakenham are all about 10 miles away, providing access to a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants.
