About the property

Cottage in Great Ryburgh, Nr Fakenham, North Norfolk, England - Idylic Riverside Location Just 20 Min From The Stunning North Norfolk Coastline

Converted in 2006 on the owners picturesque farm with stunning views along the Wensum valley. The interior is decorated to the highest standard in contemporary tones. Charming sunny courtyard to one side with an lawn area with ample area for children to play in. 6 acres of meadow with 1 acre fishing lake and riverside walk. A home from home with the local public house just a couple of minutes stroll down the lane. Indoor heated pool with changing and toilet facilities for exclusive use by our guests, please check owners site for times. On site lake (Part of the National Crucian Conservation Project) , pond and river fishing. The cottage is a perfect place to relax and explore the fabulous Norfolk countryside and coastline. During excavations for the lake in 2016 we also uncovered a unknown Anglo Saxon burial ground with Oak Tree Trunk and Plank coffins from around 850 AD which featured on the National news on the 16.11.16. We were also featured on BBC4 Digging For Britain series East. This also made the news worldwide and we will shortly be featured on BBC Inside Out for more of our side of the story.

Beautiful cottage, perfect for family holidays

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is spacious, well equipped, in a peaceful location and ideal for a family holiday. The pool was a great bonus which we really enjoyed and there are lots of interesting things to do in the surrounding area. We had a lovely holiday here and would highly recommend this cottage.

Great cottage, pool and location.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was perfect, plenty of space and very comfortable. Great outside areas within the cottage grounds and the pond is lovely to sit and relax doing a bit of fishing whenever you want. Dinosaur park, beach, harbour and nature reserve all 5 - 20 minutes away and the kids loved all of them. Pool was the biggest hit with plenty of time to enjoy. Blueboar Inn just 200 yards away nice pub with really good food.

Great stay. Will be back for sure.

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped house with great pool. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool and although the times are restricted it worked well allowing us to either swim before we went out or after. Great for the days when we just wanted to relax. Well located. We travelled a lot!!

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and well decorated and the swimming pool was a great hit with the family, adults and two boys aged 10 and 7. We thought the timings would have been a problem but they fitted perfectly with our day. The location was ideal for travelling around the area many attractions were within 20/25 miles.

Only small criticisms, hardly worth a mention, were the hard flat pillows, the small number of toilet rolls for a family of eight and more than one frying pan would have been useful, we still all ate and slept well.
