About the property

Cottage in Beachamwell, Nr Swaffham, North Norfolk, Norfolk, England - Peaceful Location, Views Of Private Woodlands. Unspoilt Walking & Cycling On Doorstep

Deep in the heart of Norfolk, less than two hours from London and within easy reach of the North Norfolk coast, this beautifully appointed holiday home is an ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of a busy life. This property is self-contained and makes up half of this spacious barn-style building (the other side is not rented out but sometimes used by the owners). The cottage has a light-filled, well equipped kitchen and a large yet comfortable living room with a wood burning stove. Positioned in an oak wood planted by the owner's grandfather over 100 years ago you are free to venture and wander in the woodland. Only 5 miles from the market town of Swaffham and a few minutes drive to the beautiful Oxborough Hall, it is the perfect location to enjoy the very best of the English countryside.

About Sorrel Bradley

My grandmother was brought up in this area and my mother used to come here for all her holidays. All the family help with the upkeep and love spending time here.

Why Sorrel Bradley chose Beachamwell

This holiday home was built on land that has been in the family for generations. It was the plantation for the old estate and in the good old days it only had a small shed for the carpenter and his men to work. As a family we love coming to this spot and hope it will remain in the family for many generations to come. We love people to come and enjoy this peaceful locations with beautiful walks and surrounding countryside.

What makes this cottage unique

For us the best things are the space, the quiet, the wonderful walks straight out of the front door. For the children they love the climbing frame, the playhouse and the sunken trampoline. The coast is only half an hour away which makes it really easy to go on day trips and yet not have to cope with all the tourists that gather there. As a family we love the big open skies of Norfolk that you can see come rain or shine.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday here, the house was a perfect, homely and snug base to explore the beautiful countryside. The squirrels were a source of joy and we saw the most awesome harvest moon on one of the last night! This part of the UK was a wonderful surprise and we’d love to come back.
