Property code: OC-1208

A gorgeous cottage set within the grounds of Dillington Hall and opposite its working farmyard. Featuring several spacious living areas, three versatile bedrooms and an attractive enclosed garden, it is ideal for families and groups of friends keen to explore the Norfolk countryside.

The flint and brick former cattle shed dates back to the 18th century and has been brought right up to date to offer comfort and relaxation to 21st century guests. The spacious interior enjoys plenty of natural light and there are reminders of its past throughout the cosy sitting room, whose exposed brick walls and beams surround comfortable soft furnishings arranged across carpeted flooring. The brick flooring in the large kitchen/diner immediately catches the eye and is a lovely place to start the day. A utility room stands nearby, as does a charming dining room built for long evening parties. Two steps lead down to fresh and rustically styled bedrooms, an en-suite king-size bedroom, a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, all of which are just a few feet away from the family bathroom. The enclosed garden is a peaceful area, replete with flower beds around its lawn and patio area, the latter a fitting setting for a BBQ supper surrounded by vast skies.

The hamlet of Dillington lies 2 miles from Dereham, a bustling market town with an impressive range of family-friendly attractions. Golfers will be in their element at Dereham’s parkland course (1 mile), while a day in Norwich (25 miles) will be worth the journey through stunning countryside alone.

A charming cottage, much more spacious than we were imagining. It was very clean and we had everything we needed. It was easy to find with the owners' instructions and Helen came by for a friendly, welcoming chat after we arrived. Eggs and other basics were awaiting us. The surroundings were attractive. Comfortable beds. Good showers. Parking was eRead moreasy. The amazing amount of lavender along the front smelled so lovely. Highly recommended! Hide

A superbly located cottage in a beautiful rural setting, yet within a couple of minutes drive to all the shops and facilities in Dereham. Very comfortable and clean, with everything needed on hand through the week, with some lovely welcome items in the kitchen on arrival (the eggs from the farm are as excellent as other reviews have stated!). ThiRead mores was our first foray away from staying on the coast in Norfolk during the school holidays and was a great decision. The location of the cottage is perfect for visiting a whole new range of attractions and places in the county for all the family - we came away after a week, having visited somewhere new each day, with a lengthy list of places still to visit. Would definitely recommend. Hide

Excellent house in every way, super handy having the EV charger so we could explore the wonderful area around the coast, cycle trails, Norfolk Broads and Norwich with no worries. Owners were wonderful and do a great job looking after the property and the farm. Can't recommend this property highly enough and we have visited many, top for everything

A lovely relaxing week in a very welcoming, warm and comfortable property. Owner was very friendly and helpful and the cottage itself was very well equipped and fully met our expectations. Would happily go back or recommend to friends. Thank you for a very enjoyable week.
