Holiday cottage to rent in Castle Acre, West Norfolk

Norfolk is always thought of as flat, but the lovely Heritage Village of Castle Acre is flanked by the hilltop ruined Norman Castle and the remains of the 1000 year old Priory, a gentle sweep down into the Nar Valley.

Our cottage stands at the peaceful edge of the village with wonderful views of the open countryside, the river and the Priory to the front and behind is the 14th Century St James Church. Castle Acre village is lucky to sustain a pub with great food, tea rooms, fish & chip shop, well stocked convenience store & post office, all just a short walk through the churchyard from our holiday cottage.

There are two double bedrooms, one with double bed and a view of the 14th century church, the other has a double bed and a single Victorian four-poster. The stairs are quite steep, leading down from the first floor bedrooms to a lobby with door to pine-panelled bathroom which has wc, bath and hand shower. A door from the lobby opens to the rest of the ground floor which is open plan.

The kitchen has butler’s sink, fridge/freezer, electric cooker, microwave, dishwasher and a dresser. Just outside is the original stone wash-house which has a washing machine and dryer.

The kitchen runs into a dining room with the original brick chimney breast and larder. There is a comfortable living room with open fireplace. There is a TV with DVD player. Ground floor has solid oak flooring with rugs.

There is a large contained garden with lawn shaded by an ancient apple tree and flower and vegetable beds and table and chairs for eating out, and also a barbecue. The garden is separate from the house along a path, which is fairly common with properties in the Norfolk countryside. At the front of the Castle Acre holiday cottage is a narrow patio with seat, for admiring the view.

The clean and shallow River Nar is a five minute walk down the hill to the ford, and great for paddling on hot summer days.

Well behaved dog welcome downstairs. Parking on verge outside the holiday cottage.
