  • “A delightful cottage with lots of character, very comfortable and spacious.”

    Ideal for exploring the Fens or Thetford forest, Oxbrough Hall National Trust etc, would certainly consider returning.

The property

This pretty, end-terrace cottage is adjacent to the village green, in the sleepy village of Oxborough.

It makes a wonderful little holiday home for families and friends exploring the Norfolk countryside and has lots of charm and character!

When you get back from a day exploring the local area, the warm, inviting sitting room, with its charming, traditional furnishings and woodburning stove, is a great place to kick back and relax.

The country-style kitchen is compact and has a Belfast sink.

In the adjacent room is the dining table where you can plan tomorrow's adventure over dinner.

French doors open into an enclosed garden at the back of the property with twin patios, a small lawn and shrubbery.

In the summer, it makes a really relaxing, tranquil spot to enjoy a morning, or lunch and dinner outside.

When you don’t feel like cooking, head to The Bedingfeld Arms, the cosy village inn just a five-minute walk away.

Visit the National Trust’s Oxborough Hall, a 15th century, moated manor house, and take a look round its glorious gardens.

The surrounding countryside is perfect for cycling and walking, with numerous nearby footpaths and trails available along The Brecks, a beautiful area of forestry and heathland with lots of designated picnic spots.

Thetford Forest is fab for a day out with the family; cycle or walk through this pretty pine forest, try out the many adventure pursuits on offer, or brave the Go Ape activity centre!

There are many historic market towns nearby including Swaffham, with its Georgian buildings, independent shops, tea rooms, pubs and a vibrant Saturday market.

With the coast and several renowned RSPB reserves less than an hour’s drive away, this lovely little holiday cottage is perfect for a break exploring this beautiful region.
