    “The fully enclosed garden meant we could leave the dogs to their own devices without constant supervision.”

The property

Downham Market 7.8 miles.

Resting on a quiet street filled with period flint cottages is Rose Cottage, a gorgeous stone-built dwelling offering a fantastic UK holiday stay in the heart of East Anglia, perfect for a large family getaway.

Find this stunning semi-detached property, boasting neutral exposed stone resting behind an enclosed pebbled front entrance garden and heaps of traditional character.

Spend a cosy winter's evening cuddled up in front of the woodburning stove, before deciding on a family film on the TV as you rest your legs on the plush sofa with a hot chocolate.

Throw together your best dish in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, a spacious room where you can use all the fantastic amenities for your self-catered meals before enjoying a sociable dinner at the formal dining table, accompanied by your loved ones and lots of wine.

The kitchen leads out to an enclosed garden; read your favourite book on the patio during a warm afternoon, use the shed for bike storage, or open up the gate and enjoy the views out to far-reaching fields.

The ground floor boasts a lovely twin room, where the older kids can enjoy a bit of freedom in the night during a fun sleepover, also on this floor is the family bathroom, benefiting from a spacious bath with an overhead shower so you can take your pick from a long hot soak or quick morning rinse.

The rest of the bedrooms can be found up the traditional steep cottage stairs, another twin and a master double, all with ample storage, a magnolia colour scheme and fresh carpets.

When you don't fancy cooking, you can find a fish and chip shop which is a short walk, where you can grab a warm bag of delicious goodness to share out on the dinner table.

Oxborough Hall National Trust building is also close to the cottage for you to visit on a morning walk!

All the necessary shops and pubs can be found a short drive away in Downham Market, a thriving market town boasting a wealth of supermarkets, independent shops, local pubs, gorgeous restaurants and several fabulous weekly markets.

There are even more attractive market towns within easy reach, such as Dereham, Swaffham and Thetford, as well as the bustling medieval town of Norwich just 25 miles away, ideal for a fun day of sight-seeing, shopping, and sampling local eateries.

Adventurers will love the chance to explore Thetford Forest and the North Norfolk Heritage Coast with an expansive choice of walking trails, trailways, and activity centres among enchanting woodlands, lush fields or sandy beaches.

Explore the vibrant town of King's Lynn, where you can visit the entertaining Lynn Museum, King’s Lynn Arts Centre and the Majestic Cinema.

Discover the RSPB reserves a short drive away along this picturesque stretch of beautiful coastline, with the Queen's Sandringham estate and grounds easily accessed from here.

About the location


King’s Lynn 11.5 miles.

The rural Saxon market town of Downham Market is one of the oldest in Norfolk, and is known locally as the gateway to the Fens, renowned for its network of waterways. Downham Market boasts an attractive black and white clock tower in its main square, and hosts a weekly outdoor market on Fridays and Saturdays selling mostly local produce, along with an additional fortnightly Saturday collectables and craft market. On the fringe of the town is the mainline railway station with links to Ely, Cambridge, King's Cross London and King's Lynn. Discover the great outdoors along the Fen Rivers Way footpaths enjoying distinctive Fens landscape rich in history and wildlife, leading to the River Great Ouse with dramatic open sky and the flood banks that protect the low lying Fens. Just a short drive away is Welney's Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust nature reserve, popular with birdwatchers, where you can view nature in action throughout the seasons, including dragonflies, wildflowers and a wealth of water birds. Other interesting places to visit include Ely Cathedral, the historic maritime town of King's Lynn, Wisbech, the Queen's Sandringham Estate, along with the west Norfolk coastal villages, towns and RSPB sites.
