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.

Short stay at the Plantation
We had a lovely few days at the Plantation at Beachamwell. Everything we needed was available and we especially enjoyed the quiet of the countryside.
Lovely house in beautiful surroundings
We spend a very cold and foggy week here at Easter, but the weather couldn't dampen our stay. The area is beautiful, with lovely walks. If it had been warm and sunny, we would have been in heaven, sitting out in the garden, enjoying the wonderful surroundings. The house is very comfortable - we are always very relieved when the beds are super comfy, which they were. We didn't want to go home! Thank you Sorrel, we had a super stay.
Loved the property and location. Amazing house and garden. Peace and quiet an easy to relax.
Lovely rural retreat
Great accommodation with everything you need to a high standard. Lovely large garden and wood, very quiet and rural. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle, this is the place!
Lovely property in the middle of the woods
My friend and I had a lovely break with her two dogs. The house was lovely and cosy and we all really enjoyed it. Thanks Electra and Sorrel!
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.
