Swanton Novers is a peaceful village surrounded by meadows and ancient woodlands. The area has an abundance of footpaths and quiet country lanes ideal for walking and cycling. The Georgian market town of Holt with its boutique shops, well-known food hall, café culture, art galleries and antique shops is a very short drive away. Discover the charming villages of Blakeney, Cley-next-the-Sea and drop in to the village store at Stiffkey for a coffee and a peruse of the fabulous homewares! A little further up the coast you will find fabulous sandy beaches at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham, backed by pinewoods under huge Norfolk skies. Whilst here visit Holkham Hall and deer park, the seat of the Earls of Leicester, this beautiful Palladian mansion is a sight not to be missed.


A lovely cottage on a working farm. The garden was particularly nice and I enjoyed sitting out in the morning and the evening under the wisteria. Very relaxing.

Mrs L,

Well equipped cottage with good access to the North Norfolk coast, and the attraction of being on a working farm was great for the kids.

Mr B,

Lovely cosy and homely cottage with beautiful garden. Good location to drive and explore several locations on the North coast. Very helpful owners - thank you for a lovely stay! Our 9 month old loved seeing the cows behind the garden!

Ms W,

I have just stayed at Lilac cottage for 3 nights. It is in a lovely spot and the cottage is well equipped, spotlessly clean and attractively furnished. Unfortunately the steepness of the staircase made life very difficult for me and I think would do for anyone with hip back or knee impairment.

Mrs D,

Lilac cottage is situated in a peaceful location but a car is needed to access local landmarks and places of interest. The cottage is traditional in style but very clean and fresh in terms of decor and fixtures and fittings. The garden is beautiful and very well-kept. The beds and linen are comfortable and cosy. The Internet access is a little unpredictable due to the remote location. Would definitely recommend a stay here!

Mrs H,

Lovely farm setting with a great garden and a good location for exploring north Norfolk.

Mrs T,
