  • “Beautiful tranquil property that really did exceed expectations!”

    Our two dogs loved exploring and roaming around the large garden, the house was cosy, clean and so well presented, the pictures don’t do it justice! The only downside to this property is that the masters bed was quite small. I’m only 5’3” and my feet were touching the base of the bed and my partner had the curl up to sleep. The pillows were uncomfortable -which is the usual case as you have your own preference- but it would have been nice to have some spare different pillows as all the ...

    Our two dogs loved exploring and roaming around the large garden, the house was cosy, clean and so well presented, the pictures don’t do it justice! The only downside to this property is that the masters bed was quite small. I’m only 5’3” and my feet were touching the base of the bed and my partner had the curl up to sleep. The pillows were uncomfortable -which is the usual case as you have your own preference- but it would have been nice to have some spare different pillows as all the pillows on the property were the same thickness and hardness. On the same note, spare bedding could’ve done with being available as the duvet was very thick and too warm so having a thinner duvet or sheets as an option would’ve been appreciated. If you have young children I was also suggest bringing your own high chair as the one provided is pretty reclined with no option to sit it up. Overall though this property was amazing and I’d easily say it’s the best I’ve been too and I’ve been to quite a few now. It’s the perfect mixture of being in the countryside and feeling like you’re in the middle of nowhere but still close to local amenities and towns for days out. You could also happily relax at the property and just explore the local walking area. I’d definitely book it again!

Today Dereham enjoys excellent local amenities, which include Bishop Bonner’s Cottage Museum, the magnificent 13th century church of St Nicholas, along with a wide selection of high street shops. On the edge of Dereham you can enjoy a journey on East Anglia’s longest heritage railway - the Mid Norfolk Railway, with steam and diesel trains to choose from. Just outside Dereham you can step back in time with a visit to Gressenhall Rural Life Museum and discover what traditional country life was like in Norfolk.
