Key Info
  • Suitable for children over 5
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

The beautifully restored cottage is a Grade II listed 18th Century building of brick and flint is in the centre of the village. It's set well back from the road with a good-sized front garden and a lime shaded, south facing terrace at the back with views over the Nar valley. Great for families or couples with plenty to do close by and perfectly situated for exploring West Norfolk.

On the Peddar's Way, ancient Castle Acre is a conserved Norfolk village with the remains of a Clunaic Priory, the ruins of an 11th Century castle and a 15th Century church. There is a playing field with children's play area and skate park. The shallow river Nar is a few minutes walk from the village.

It is an excellent base for walking or cycling holidays (cycles can be brought inside if required) and there is plenty to see and do in the area.

The East Anglia region

West Norfolk is a truly special place of unspoilt charm and natural beauty, where tranquillity and relaxation are order of the day.

Set against a backdrop of stunning coastline and beautiful countryside, this wonderful part of Norfolk is a sheer pleasure to explore. Once discovered, you'll want to come back again and again!

West Norfolk provides the perfect base for a birdwatching break and exploring national trails such as the Peddars Way

Castle Acre

Castle Acre is a Norman settlement where the Peddars Way National Trail crosses the picturesque River Nar. It has one of the largest and best preserved Cluniac monastic sites in England (English Heritage). Scenes from Stephen Poliakoff’s film ‘Glorious 39’ were shot here. Swaffham has featured in other dramas such as Dad’s Army, Love on a Branch Line, Hello Hello and, most recently, Kingdom with Stephen Fry, also filmed in Wells-Next-Sea and Burnham Market.

Local attractions, activities and entertainment include Westacre Theatre, Gooderstone Water Gardens, the Iceni Village, wild life and nature reserves, local gardens (National Garden Scheme), fishing, golf (Swaffham), walking and bird watching. In nearby Thetford Forest visit Go Ape, Grime's Graves, hire a bike and enjoy horse riding,

Castle Acre is a great base to explore Norfolk and Suffolk, including the North Norfolk Coast, the Norfolk Broads and Norwich. There is also good local walking and cycling.
