The
Experience

A Tudor manor house complete with a moat and a brick and flint cottage which once belonged to Banes, the gardener. You’re free to roam the gardens on open days in spring and summer; guided tours of the house take place occasionally during the year.

It’s cosy inside with a real coal fire, plenty of games, books and DVDs; store your boots, bikes and muddy dog towels in the scullery to the side. You’re welcome to use the tennis court, and the lovely garden space with far-reaching views is the best place for a barbecue.

You can walk bridle paths or drive to the coast for wonderful beaches and salt marshes. The Georgian town of Holt and the market town of Fakenham are both seven miles equidistant; Binham Priory is two miles away and Walsingham Abbey five miles. Wells-next-the-Sea is a pretty harbour town with a nature reserve and a stunning beach.

Thank you, we had a lovely time and the cottage was so cosy. I really want to come back and visit when the garden is open. I shall certainly recommend you to friends, Best wishes, Helen.

Location

The neighbourhood

The cottage is set in the pretty village of Hindringham. There are three pubs within two miles – ask your hosts about eating places as well as farm shops; Cley Deli is a good option for pre-made meals if you don’t want to cook. There are walking paths and it’s a ten-minute drive to the North Norfolk coast for the coastal path. Visit sandy beaches in Holkham, take boat trips to see the seals from Blakeney Quay.

Local points of interest from Lynda Tucker

  • Banes cottage offers peace and seclusion within the beautiful gardens of Hindringham Hall. . A tennis court for the energetic and a cosy fire to relax by. Crisp white cotton sheets and the sound of the birds to lull you to sleep
  • 10 mins from the sea and the beautiful North Norfolk Coast with many lovely walks, sailing at Blakeney or Morston. Sandy beaches at Holkham, wild lavender covered flats at Morston. Walsingham and Binham with ruined Abbeys and are only 10 minute drive away.
  • Holt with excellent shops 7 miles, also Burnham Market. Visit Wells, a fishing port, with boats bustling in and out. Sheringham and Cromer are not to be missed. Fakenham Market Day is Thursday, Swaffham on Sat. Titchwell, Cley and Pensthorpe for birdies
  • For a wet day, 5 stately homes are within a 30 min drive, the steam trains run from Holt and Walsingham. Cromer has the last "End of the Pier show" in England, and there are theatres in Kings Lynn and Norwich. Picture Houses are in Fakenham and Cromer
  • Excellent local restaurant and pubs. Caught, grown or meat reared by the butcher selling it. There are places to eat to suit all - from Michelin to Cookies Crab shack. Food locally caught, grown or bred with 4 excellent gastropubs within 4 miles
  • A comfortable cottage where you can escape, surrounded by beautiful Norfolk countryside yet within easy reach of all that Norfolk has to offer be it outdoor persuits or historical sites. Thursford christmas show 2 miles and the Cromer Pier show is a must

Introducing

Lynda Tucker

When Lynda and Charles Tucker moved to Hindringham Hall the cottages in the garden were used by staff, but over the years they have been renovated and are now holiday lets. The Tuckers have a passion for gardening and history – the gardens have featured in national magazines and are open to the public twice a week for six months of the year. Popular tours of the site and ground floor of the Hall are held a few times a year.
