Dillington, a small hamlet, is quietly situated in the heart of rural Norfolk approximately two miles north west of East Dereham. Dereham itself is a bustling market town with shops, restaurants, cinema, bowling alley, leisure centre, golf course and street market on Fridays. Dillington is only a twenty mile drive to the North Norfolk Coast and the city of Norwich.  




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!). This 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.

Mr Y,

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

Mrs G,

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.

Mr Y,

This is the third time we have stayed at Keepers Cottage. It's a beautifully presented, well equipped and comfortable cottage that we find ideal for family get togethers. The location is excellent for the North Norfolk Coast and the Broads are only an hour away. We always feel so much at home here. Free eggs every day from the roaming chickens!

Mr T,

Keepers cottage is lovely everything you could possible want. It very homely , comfortable and very clean. This is our second stay and hopefully we will stay again. Helen was very helpful if you should need any help she will be there. The chicken visits in the morning were always something to look forward to and just sitting in the garden enjoying the sun ,which we we're very lucky with for the 2 weeks we stayed. We highly recommend this cottage.

Mrs P,

A wonderful, high quality cottage which far exceeded our expectations. The welcome touches on arrival (fresh bread, milk, cake, eggs, wine) were simply lovely. Very peaceful location equidistant from Norwich and the coast. Generous hosts (free pick your own strawberries!), very well equipped property, lovely private garden, somewhere I would happily live! Completely understandable due to managing Covid, but it was a real shame we had to leave by 9am on departure day to give clear time before the cleaners arrived - would have liked to maximise our time there. Would definitely like to return.

Mrs C,

This cottage is only a few minutes drive from the nearest town and large supermarkets, and close to the A47 for easy access to Norwich and the Midlands. But it’s on a lovely farm, down a quiet lane, with great walks from the door. Loads of wildlife to spot. Totally quiet and peaceful.
