Castle Acre is a pretty North-West Norfolk conservation village which is steeped in history and has a timeless quality to it. The Norman Castle earthworks and the beautiful ruins of the magnificent Cluniac Priory are the best preserved in the country. The village is sited on the ancient Peddars' Way, and the area offers ample opportunities for good walking and cycling. The beautiful North Norfolk coast and the cities of Norwich and Cambridge are within easy travelling distance.

The MacKenzie Party,

A lovely cottage in a great location. Everything we wanted or needed in easy reach in the village or in Swaffham. Enjoyed the hospitality of the Ostrich and Barnfields cafe several times!

The Warner Party,

Such a lovely, spacious cottage, the best we have stayed in yet. Spa shop very handy and fish and chips delicious! The circular walk via West Acre is great, the Stag pub nice but no dogs allowed indoors. Dabbling Duck great for a treat, local cafe lovely and Ostrich very hospitable.

Previous Customer,

This is our third visit and feel like this is home from home. Attended the Remembrance Service yesterday at the memorial and beautiful church. Mum, now 88 and a half still struggles a bit with steps to kitchen but hope to be back in the Summer.

The Hitchcock Party,

Excellent, comfortable, well equipped cottage. Brilliant location for beaches, walking and birding. Saw our first bearded tits at Titchwell. Our second visit and it will not be the last. Great holiday.

Previous Customer,

Fabulous stay, lovely cottage, beautifully presented and well equipped. Lovely welcome with biscuits, milk and tea provided. Very thoughtful. No issues with any equipment and everything worked fine - also lovely and clean. Had a great stay and will look forward to a return visit.
