Saxlingham Nethergate is a picturesque village with a cricket green and a pretty 14th century church with a wealth of medieval stained glass. The nearby village of Stoke Holy Cross hosts the award winning Wildebeest Arms, a lovely gastro pub with a great atmosphere. Also in Stoke Holy Cross, is the recently refurbished restaurant Stoke Mill for contemporary, fine dining. The Tas Valley, in the vicinity, is a super place for birdwatching, peaceful walks and keen fishermen can access both Carp and Coarse fishing at Taswood Lakes. The nearby Boudicca’s Way is a long distance Norfolk Trail that you can either cycle or walk and if golf is your thing, there is an excellent 18-hole golf course and floodlit driving range at Dunston Hall. There is something for everyone in this part of the county - one visit will not be enough.


A beautifully equipped and decorated property. The best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. We are planning to return!

Mrs P,

The signs around the cottage advise you to mind your head, our advise would be to mind your heart because this charming abode will steal it. Cottage is warm and cosy, well stocked with things we needed. The ultimate on a wet dreary October weekend.

Previous Customer,

We have enjoyed a lovely sunny week in your beautiful cottage. We have been very comfortable. We explored near and far. We enjoyed a fabulous evening meal at the Wilderbeast. We went Kite flying at Caister on Sea and took a gentle stroll around Hickling broad. We can recommend "Rocky Bottoms" at West Runton for crab salad. Thank you for the treats and the extra cleaning that you have had to do between guests.

Kay F,
