    Credit the owner the fridge packed in - can’t help that it happens some times! within 1/2hr of notifying them some one around to check, within 24hrs a replacement was there. Thank you for a great experience and a relaxing stay

The property

Feltwell 4.2 miles.

Tucked away in the civil parish of Methwold near Feltwell in Norfolk, is this superb two-bedroom character cottage, Chalk Cottage.

Dating back to the 1850’s this historic cottage takes its name from its make-up of chalk and flint and enjoys an idyllic location with a private enclosed garden and easy access to Brandon and Thetford, making Chalk Cottage an ideal dwelling for a family of four or two couples with two furry friends who are looking to explore Norfolk.

Be welcomed into the spacious living/dining room, where you can look forward to curling up on the plush sofas and relaxing in front of your favourite film on the 48” TV with Sky, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

Pop on your chef’s hat and take your place in the well-equipped kitchen, with tumble dryer, washing machine, fridge/freezer and electric oven and hob, ensuring you have everything you need to whip up culinary delights.

Fold out the conveniently stored dining table, uncork a bottle of wine and settle down to savour a delicious meal before toasting to a wonderful holiday.

If the weather is nice, why not make dinner an alfresco affair on the private patio?

Make your way up to the first-floor where you will find a bathroom where you can pour in the bubbles and indulge in a soothing soak in the bath, as well as two-well presented bedrooms, a double with wall-mounted TV, ideal for those lazy Sunday mornings and a triple bunk which is suitable for both adults and children, both with plenty of storage for your belongings.

Take advantage of Chalk Cottages’ location with the well-loved chip shop of Rumbles just a stone’s throw away, as well as The George, a village pub which also serves tasty food and local ales, both perfect options for when you fancy a night off from the kitchen.

For keen anglers, there are two fantastic fishing lakes nearby, Thornham Fishing Lakes and Fendick’s Fishery, where you can find your catch of the day!

After days of exploring, why not treat your guests to a pamper or relaxing massage at the Hythe Court Spa?

Just a short drive away is the agricultural village of Feltwell, where you will find a delightful selection of convenience shops where you can pick up ingredients to recreate your favourite holiday meals so far, welcoming pubs and an excellent 9-hole golf course.

Walkers and cyclists will delight at the close proximity to Thetford Forest Park, which offers scenic trails, including the Thetford Heath National Nature Reserve, offering superb views, opportunities to spot the local wildlife, as well as the popular Go Ape where you can explore the forest walking along the treetops!

Head into Thetford town centre where you will find the Ancient House Museum, the fascinating ruins of the medieval Thetford Priory, the popular Thetford Golf Club and the lush Castle Park.

Promising something for everyone, secure your stay at Chalk Cottage.

FELTWELL

The agricultural village of Feltwell is situated on the Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire borders and is one of the largest villages in Norfolk. Feltwell offers good local amenities including village stores, a Post Office, and pubs. This area of Norfolk is known as the ‘Brecks’, which has a unique landscape consisting of beautiful Scots Pine forests, heathlands, wetlands, chalk streams, meres and pingo ponds. The Brecks is an outstanding area for wildlife conservation and boasts several nature reserves, country parks and visitor centres, which offer activities for the whole family. Thetford Forest High Lodge Centre is the largest lowland pine forest in the UK, and is an excellent place to walk and cycle. Just 6 miles from Feltwell on the Suffolk border is Lakenheath, where aviation enthusiasts can see American jets at USAF Lakenheath take off and land from its watch areas. Close by is the English Heritage owned Neolithic flint mines at Grimes Graves, and the 125 acre reconstructed Anglo-Saxon village at West Stow. Museums can be found at Brandon, Thetford, Mildenhall and Swaffham and country houses include the National Trust owned Oxburgh Hall and Euston Hall. The area also has two local small breweries and St George’s Distillery - England’s only whiskey distillery. Feltwell is an ideal base for exploring all that this region has to offer.
