The property

Watton 3.5 miles.

The Duck House is the perfect choice for a romantic getaway and a peaceful stay in Norfolk, boasting a glorious super-king-size bed, this intimate property is ideal for a couple to escape from day to day life in a relaxing setting.

Based on the owner's ground, the sweeping driveway takes you to your own private entrance of a traditional red brick barn conversion, greeting you with a large lawned area and your own private patio, a great spot to sit out on a summer's day with a bottle of beer as you enjoy an outdoor picnic.

Be impressed as you step inside to this contemporary space, where a rustic exterior meets stylish indoor fittings and fixtures, with an open-plan kitchen, dining space and lounge area.

Rustle up a delicious meal for two in the state-of-the-art kitchen, fitted with everything you might need for a self-catered stay including luxury items such as a dishwasher, washing machine and a coffee maker.

Spend a date night at the lovely dining table, either with your own home-cooking or a nearby takeaway after a tiring day of exploring before retiring to the large corner sofa, snuggling up for a cosy film night, flicking through the Smart TV.

Elegant bi-folding doors lead you into the amazing super-king-size bed, the perfect spot to rest your head to prepare for an exciting day ahead, just behind the room is a super convenient storage space for any bags, bikes, or watersports equipment.

Soak your troubles away in the hot tub, sipping on a glass of prosecco as you enjoy a private evening in this lavish space, you can even open the patio doors to overlook the lush green lawn.

Once finished, a door leads you straight into the sleek shower room so you can get washed up and dried quickly in the spacious walk-in shower.

The local area provides a vast array of attractions, including scenic walks including Peddars Way an ancient route which links to the coastal path, and the Pingo Trail can be found on your doorstep.

A stroll away from the property The Chequers Inn, a historic inn with a pub, restaurant and lounge, dating back to 1499, boasting bistro-style dining, a cosy lounge for late night drinks, and alfresco dining all year round, whereas Wayside Farm Shop is slightly further afield, specialising in local meat and fresh seasonal vegetables.

The nearby market town of Watton is a delightful area with a wider selection of independent shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, cafés, and a weekly market sourcing local fish, as well as enchanting woodland at Wayland Wood, a Site of Special Scientific Interest with walking trails, birdwatching and local wildlife.

Enjoy a day of cultural exploration at historical attractions including a 15th century manor house, Oxburgh Hall, or the Watton Clock Tower based on a busy high street.

Meslop Farm Park is a fantastic day out for both kids and adults, giving you the chance to spend time with a baby piglet or rabbit, or feed a variety of cute farm animals.

Enjoy a day out in the fresh countryside air at Thetford Forest Park, home to a selection of walks including historic, coastal and wildlife trails, as well as a Neolithic flint mine at Grime's Graves, a spectacular lunar landscape.

If you're fancying a fast paced day out, visit the bustling city of Norwich, exploring thriving high street shopping, fun bars, fine dining, museums, art galleries, or venture to the outskirts for an abundance of watersports activities at Whitlingham Country Park.

A romantic escape awaits at The Duck House, a secluded space to explore Norfolk.

About the location


Swaffham 10 miles; Thetford 15 miles; Norwich 23 miles.

The well-served market town of Watton is in the district of Breckland, just less than 25 miles from Norwich. Perfectly positioned for access to the whole of Norfolk and North Suffolk, this town is thought to be where the 'Babes in the Wood' were abandoned in Wayland Wood. You will see on the town sign that there are two babes, and a hare jumping over the barrel reflecting the town name; wat being the local dialect word for hare, and ton for barrel. There is a traditional market held every Wednesday morning with produce including freshly caught fish, and there are two supermarkets and a number of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs to enjoy. Within reach is the popular Thetford Forest Park, a number of golf courses, other market towns and not forgetting the cathedral city of Norwich. A convenient base for your Norfolk adventure.
