We have just returned from the most wonderful rural family retreat.
This is a very cosy rustic cottage(you get the home away from home feeling instantly) which sits perched on a beautiful property with fabulous vistas across the countryside. You are surrounded by beautiful rambling gardens, a great grassy area for children to play in and a hilltop swing for morning coffee and evening drinks. Henrietta has an amazing art collection throughout the house!
The house is nestled in a very quiet rural location but nearby is the beautiful coast (we visited the beach at, Wells Next the Sea, Brancaster and Cley Next the Sea; all offering a different vibe but with beautiful sea views and huge beaches!
The farm shop in little Waslingham was brilliant for food, wine and treats.
Great little shops in Burnham market, Thornham deli and shop, Drove orchards with boutique shops and great fish and chips at Eric's (outdoor seating and kids play area adjacent)
We visited the seals at Blankness with Bishops boats, a great boat ride and insight into that area of the coast.
Also spent a morning on the Holkham Estate which has a great wooden adventure playground the kids loved.
Two children (boys 2,4) a birdwatcher, and two moms who love outdoors were all very delighted with what North Norfolk has to offer and 1 Field House Cottage is the perfect spot to stay!
On our last night we had a show from Barnaby the Owl who soared up and down the neighbouring fields hunting for dinner!
We would definitely recommend this cottage to friends who are looking to discover this beautiful neck of the woods.
Thank you Henrietta for all your emails and helpfulness!
Kate and family …
Stayed here the last weekend of April. Horrendous weather!! Luckily the house was cozy warm..
Lovely spacious house. Comfy beds. Well equipped kitchen. Fabulous large dining table. Large sofa.
Really enjoyed it. High chance of a return visit.
Fabulous Weekend in Norfolk!
We came to Edgar House to celebrate my sister in law's 50th birthday and what a fabulous weekend we had. We have all agreed we will be back! The house was so well equipped you literally could not want for anything. We had great fun round the long table over extended meals , took it in turns cooking and did some sight-seeing during the day. Brancaster beach near King's Lynn was wonderful for a Sunday morning stroll, Monty the golden retriever was in his element. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool particularly on the first day when the weather was unfortunately quite grim. …
