Saxlingham Nethergate is a designated Conservation Area known for its outstandingly attractive landscape and village. At the village’s heart, stands the beautiful Grade 11 listed Apple Tree Cottage, which dates back, in parts, to the 15th Century. The perfect spot for a truly restful holiday, the cottage will work its charms from the moment you step through the front door. With impressive beams throughout and some lovely spaces to relax outside in warmer weather, the beautifully restored interiors take you a world away from everyday living to enjoy a calmer pace of life. The kitchen hosts a Rayburn in a large inglenook fireplace, the bedrooms have been elegantly furnished and the first floor sitting room is a sumptuous space with its vaulted ceiling and antique pieces. A stay at Apple Tree Cottage allows you to delight in peaceful and beautiful surroundings whilst not being too far away from many visitor attractions and will be a spot you will want to return to time and again.

Saxlingham Nethergate is a picturesque village with a cricket green and a pretty 14th century church with a wealth of medieval stained glass and yet it is just a short drive from the vibrant city of Norwich. 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. Just a short drive takes you to elegant Norwich City with its café culture, cathedrals, castle, museums, fabulous boutique shopping, theatres, cinema complexes and a myriad of restaurants and eateries and the cottage is also within easy driving distance of The Broads and some stunning east coast beaches. There is something for everyone in this part of the county - one visit will not be enough.

Very welcoming and beautiful cottage. Everything we needed and more (delicious cake!). Great walks around here including the Roman fort in Caistor St Edmunds. The beds were so comfortable like everything else in the cottage. Thank youAndy, Jane, Imogen and Fred Duffen - 3rd June 2018
Wonderful bank holiday weekend at the cottage. Very comfortable and we had everything we needed. Would recommend the Wildebeest restaurant in Stoke Holy Cross only a few miles away. Very good food in a nice setting. Thank you Chris and Stephen for an excellent stay. Paul Williamson and Brett Morris - 28th May 2018
A beautiful little cottage that felt like a home away from home. A great location from which to explore all that Norfolk has to offer.Miss Christina Blume - 13th May 2018
Thank you for a pleasant stay at this beautiful and cosy little cottage. You went the extra mile to welcome us on arrival despite us being very late. The tastefully decorated cottage really felt like a home away from home. It also made for a great base from which to explore the Norfolk coast and countryside. Nick, Christina, Ingold and Ellen - 7th May 2018
This has been such a lovely cottage. Everything we could have possibly needed or wanted. We can't thank you enough. It was especially lovely to arrive to a beautiful cake on the table and a pint of milk in the fridge! We have felt so comfortable and relaxed here, we're sad to leave. Chris and Stephen, we cannot thank you enough. God bless.Simon and Elena - 20th March 2018
We have spent the perfect 'family Christmas' in Apple Tree Cottage, especially enhanced by the beautiful Christmas decorations provided by Chris and Stephen. The cottage is extremely well equipped, the beds comfortable and warm. The Rayburn makes the whole place so cosy, especially over a cold and damp English winter. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. We will certainly be back.The Watts Family - 2nd January 2018
