  • "Wonderful property."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

  • "What a pretty old cottage!"

    So well thought out and set in lovely peaceful surroundings with lots of wildlife. We saw muntjac deer nearly everyday, it was a nice touch to have a good pair of binoculars and a bird book on hand. We liked that it was quiet and just a quick drive to the shops. The cottage was clean, comfy and had everything we needed. It was in a good location to explore Norfolk, equally good if you just wanted to stay put and relax. The owners were friendly and very helpful. The only slight niggle were the light shades in the kitchen and on the landing were too low for tall people, which was amusing to me when my son forgot but not so amusing for him!

    Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and our beautiful Norfolk countryside. We would love to see you back someday. Property Owner

  • "It was a peaceful, relaxing stay."

    The facilities were fine, internet access was perfect so we could use our NOW tv box with the TV. We saw deer in the field by the lake. Was only 20 mins away from Kings Lynn and supermarkets. Would definitely come back here.

    We are glad that you had a relaxing stay despite the weather and we would be glad to see you return anytime in the future and thank you for leaving everywhere so clean and tidy. Bob & Ang. / Owners. Property Owner

    .It was spacious had everything you needed and more..The scenery and surroundings were so peaceful and beautiful..The tree swing in the garden was a hit with our sons and the log burner and open fire made it so cosy..Our dog loved laying in front of it after chasing sticks in the huge garden..The bedding and towels smelled lovely the beds were comfortable..The owners are very friendly and helpful..The weather wasn't our friend as it rained most days but that didn't matter as we were quite happy to stay in and just enjoy the tranquillity and the peacefulness there..When it was dry my husband and sons enjoyed some fishing at Pentney lakes and we had some walks out and our youngest son enjoyed looking through the binoculars at the different birds squirrels horses and muntjac deer..We would definitely recommend Horseshoe Cottage..Thanks Bob and Ang for a relaxing quiet and cosy week x

  • "Lovely cottage nicely presented and clean."

    Comfortable and cosy; we enjoyed our winter evenings by the wood burner. Very nice touches with Christmas tree and decorations and welcome pack. We did a couple of local walks suggested in the folder left by owner. Also visited Holkham Beach, Wells-next-the-sea and the Sandringham Estate for walks. Together with our dog we enjoyed all our walks. Visited Burnham Market too and had a nice meal in The Dabbling Duck Pub at Great Massingham. As a suggestion, a hair dryer would be useful.

    We are glad that you had a lovely stay and enjoyed the local area as well as exploring further afield. A good point regarding the Hairdryer, we had overlooked this nesessity and will ad this to our itinery for future guests . Property Owner

  • "Horseshoe Cottage was really lovely, we enjoyed our stay very much, our two dogs enjoyed running around in the large garden it was totally enclosed so we had please of mind when letting them out."

    The cottage had everything you could want, the evenings were chilly because of the time of year but we were lovely and cozy in front of the wood burner, the owners were really helpful nothing was to much trouble, we had a great stay will definitely go back again. We visited Sandringham estate where we had a lovely walk with our dogs around the Luminate lights walk but we could only go around in the afternoon they had some light shows we could see but would of loved to do the trail at night but dogs weren’t allowed during the evening, but never mind it didn’t spoil our stay, would recommend Horseshoe cottage it’s a lovely place. You can see the lake from the garden and lots of lovely wildlife.

    Thank you for your comments, we are really pleased that you and your dogs had a great stay at the cottage and thank you for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy, you are most welcome back anytime. Property Owner

  • "Lovely comfy cottage, garden was beautiful for the dog."

    Well equipped kitchen, nice non-stick pans but only had metal kitchen utensils so probably won't be non-stick for long, but it was nice to have good quality, sharp knives. It would have been nice to have a radio in the kitchen/dining area as we don't always watch TV, also a bedside clock as I don't tend to take my phone to bed with me. Visited Holt, Wells-next-the-sea and RAF Lakenheath, there is a lovely walk at Bilney woods and plenty of others around. We really enjoyed our stay. There was also a nice welcome basket with some goodies. Thank you for letting us stay.

    Thank you for taking the time to revue your stay. We are glad that you really enjoyed it and expored the local area as well as visiting other Norfolk areas. Property Owner

    Garden was fantastic for kids & dogs. Generally everything was great! Linen smelled incredible & beds very comfy. Could do with a few more saucepans and maybe a better speed peeler but these are minor things! Will definitely be back.

The property

Horseshoe Cottage is a lovely, detached cottage nestled in a rural position in the village of Pentney, near Upper Marham, Norfolk.

Benefitting from lake views with a spacious lawned garden, Horseshoe Cottage ticks the boxes for a wonderful family base in the Norfolk countryside.

Step inside this traditional cottage and take a moment to appreciate the well-equipped kitchen, where you can cook up a storm on the electric oven and hob or heat up a quick meal in the microwave.

Leading through into the living/dining room, settle onto the sofa in front of the TV and relax with a glass of wine beside the woodburning stove.

There is also another sitting room where you can snuggle up in front of the open fire and enjoy a movie night with the family.

The back garden area is fully enclosed, so children and pets can explore the grounds in safety.

On warm days, fire up the brick-built BBQ and savour a tasty lunch on the patio area with outdoor seating, plus there is a tree swing and the huge lake is ideal for watersports and jet skiing.

The North Norfolk coast is also less than 20 miles away.

When it’s time to rest, drift upstairs to the three bedrooms, including two doubles and a twin, served by a bathroom.

The views from this upper level are fantastic - you can see for acres across field and tree lined areas.

The location of the cottage is a quiet country village; Pentney offers local amenities and its own history of Pentney Abbey, the castle ruins and its original walls around the village and Pentney Lakes is a great place for water skiers and fishermen too.

Experience a little piece of history in the bustling market town of King's Lynn, home to the majestic St Margaret's Church and the famous Castle Rising castle.

The cottage is not far from many historic national trust houses such as Oxborough Hall, St George’s Guildhall in King’s Lynn, market towns such as Wisbech, where there is the amazing historic Peckover House and Gardens and the city of Peterborough.

In addition to the fabulous back garden setting, the property is surrounded by nature reserves and wildlife centres, the Welney Wash Wetlands is only a short drive away and is another haven for bird spotting too.

Horseshoe Cottage is the perfect place for cyclists, walkers, nature lovers alike, ideal for making memories and exploring all that Norfolk has to offer.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.
