  • "Great accommodation, well appointed, very clean with fantastic fixtures and fittings and great to be annexed to the owner's home."

    Nice quiet location but centrally placed with good access to visitor attractions. I would comment that the description of 'enclosed garden' is somewhat misleading in regards to being dog friendly. Yes an enclosed area, but basically a paved patio area, rather than a garden that your pooch can run about in. Also if you want to make home cooked meals the cookware is a bit limited in terms of no microwave specific cookware and no non stick cooking pans. Having said that overall a great property!

  • "Walnut Shade exceeded our expectations!"

    Perfect for the two of us and our dog with plenty of space and a safe enclosed courtyard. The beds are lovely and comfortable, there is a modern bathroom with bath and shower combined and the open plan kitchen/living room works well with comfortable armchairs beside the patio doors which open onto the courtyard with outside seating. The kitchen area is modern and well equipped, the hosts had even provided dogs bowls. 10 stars all round from us.

    We went with our 4 year old twins and had a lovely week. The cottage had everything we needed and the beds were super comfy. The location is great for exploring Norfolk and there is a lovely play area in the village only a short walk away.

    The only addition to the property to suggest for safety reasons would be an anti-skid mat for the bath/shower. Thank you.

  • "Walnut shade was a lovely little find to stay at for the week - fairly priced."

    Ideal location for taking dogs away- with dog friendly pubs close by. Location easy to find, well equipped and spacious. Lots of lovely walking near - even with a slight countryside view from the patio. Very happy with our week away exploring with a warm, homely base to come back to.

  • "Walnut Shade (annexe) is absolutely lovely."

    The refurbished cottage has been done to a high standard with clean fresh decoration and everything all looking great. We stayed as a family of four with a baby (we brought our own baby crib), and two dogs! Plenty of space, enclosed safe rear garden area with lovely seating and sun shade. Fully equipped kitchen. Not far to the Gamekeeper pub which is dog friendly and super meals. Would definitely stay here again. Location is very good.

The property

Walnut Shade a pretty annex in the rural village of Old Buckenham, Norfolk.

This single-storey annex is perfect for those who love to get out into nature and enjoys an enclosed garden to dine alfresco on warm evenings.

Be greeted by two off-road parking spaces before entering your new home from home, where you will find an entrance hallway to leave your shoes.

The open-plan living space is bright and airy and hosts a kitchen area with a gas cooker, washing machine and a dishwasher to save you doing the cleaning up.

Enjoy mealtimes at the dining table or head out on the rear garden to relish home-cooked meals in the sun whilst admiring the fields before you.

As the evening winds to an end, retreat inside, unwind on the sofa and flicker through the Smart TV for some downtime.

After a day exploring your surroundings, have a soothing soak in the bathroom or opt for a shower whilst your towel keeps warm on the rail.

When sleep calls, choose between a king-size and a twin bedroom, both with oak furniture and neutral tones.

Begin the day with a hearty breakfast with the kitchen appliances to assist you and why not make use of the quiet location to read a book?

A short stroll will lead you to two countryside pubs, so you can head out for lunch and a chilled pint; afterwards browse the shops to grab any treats or essentials.
