Description

Built in 1755 this truly delightful Grade II listed, flint and pantile cottage is full of charm and character. Set at the end of Stocks Green and with uninterrupted views of St James the Great Church built in the 14th Century, its central village position could not be bettered. A warm welcome awaits as you enter into the beamed kitchen/dining room with a lovely range cooker in the inglenook that leads onto a cosy living room with wood burner and double aspect views. The first floor's double bedroom also has views of the Green and there is a further twin bedroom with Church views and a family bathroom on this floor. The final flight takes you in to the eaves and the second twin bedroom. Cockleshells is a pleasing house for families or friends wanting to explore this part of West Norfolk and is a great home from home to come back to at the end of a busy day's wanderings. Shops/Pub: within walking distance

Castle Acre is a hidden gem in the lea of 'royal' West Norfolk and the coast. Famed for its 13th Century Cluniac Priory ruins managed by English Heritage, the 12th Century Norman castle ruins and Bailey's Gate, this ancient village, with a traditional pub, is a joy to wander through. From the village it is easy to access both Peddars Way and the Nar Valley Way, both of which offer beautiful countryside on the doorstep. Great houses are nearby with Houghton Hall and the Sandringham Estate just a short drive away and if you fancy a flutter, Fakenham Racecourse has year round meetings.The delights of the Norfolk coast, with the family friendly beaches of Heacham and Hunstanton to the west and the RSPB reserve at Titchwell to the north, intermingle with lovely coastal spots such as Brancaster and Thornham, whilst those keen to shop need look no further than sophisticated  Burnham Market.  A stay at Castle Acre gives you the best of both worlds in its accessibility and tranquillity and will be somewhere to return to time and again.
