Rose Cottage is a beautifully presented two bedroom flint and brick mid-terraced house built in the early 18th century and full of character, situated on a quiet lane where you can enjoy peace and tranquility whilst glimpsing the church tower of St James the Great through the tree tops. This period cottage, ideally suited to couples with children, has been lovingly restored and furnished in keeping with its character with high quality furniture and fittings throughout. The village itself is steeped in history, with the famous priory and castle ruins just a minute or two's walk from the cottage. After a busy day exploring the castle ruins relax by the cosy wood burner and enjoy a novel, or sit out on the terrace on summer evenings with the delicate scent of climbing roses and honeysuckle.

Castle Acre is a popular year round destination with visitors flocking to the area to explore the ancient priory and castle ruins. The village takes its name from the walled castle built by the Norman’s in the 12th Century and lies four miles north of Swaffham where the river Nar is crossed by an ancient route known as the Peddars Way. The castle ruins and priory are just a short walk away and the 16th Century tavern, the Ostrich Inn; offers a great Sunday roast or a glass of your favourite beverage. There is a village shop for those last minute essentials, antique shops brimming with unusual antiquities and a delightful tea room. The neighbouring village of Great Massingham is a short drive away with a popular pub and restaurant, ‘The Dabbling Duck’ nestled within the picturesque village green. The majestic ‘Sandringham House’ is located 14 miles from the village. Here you can explore the house and gardens, visit the adventure playground or explore the woodland - plenty to keep the whole family occupied.
